Partying, dudes, and hockey. What more could a gay NHL player want?
If it weren’t for Anton Hayes, my life would be perfect.
Not that he affects my life in any way. At all. That would imply I care what the winger from Philly thinks of me.
Which I don’t.
Not even a one-night stand with him can thaw his misplaced animosity toward me.
He says I’m the one with the ego, but he can talk. He rivals me for most egotistical puck boy in the league.
I hate him as much as he hates me. Even if I crave a repeat.
When it comes to hockey, I’m all about the game.
I’ve worked for years to be one of the best in the league, and l’ve done it without splashing my orientation all over the tabloids.
My hockey image is one I’ve carefully cultivated, and after one night with Ezra Palaszczuk, I risk it all.
He’s cocky, obnoxious, and has an ego bigger than Massachusetts. And okay, maybe he’s the sexiest man I’ve ever known.
We’ll never get along. Not when we sleep together. Not even when my possessive streak awakens.
That doesn’t stop us from falling into bed together over and over again.
YES, this book is EVERYTHING. I already NEED Tripp’s book, please!!!!! More!
*cough* Okay, now that I’ve settled down a bit… I love this amazing enemies to lovers contemporary hockey romance. This book is everything I’ve come to expect from Eden Finley and Saxon James, and then some.
Enemies to lovers romance full of dirty anger-banging. (Look, to pass the various review content filters I couldn’t use the phrase I really wanted to, but you know what it is.) YES. PLEASE. I live and die for the banter and snark between Ezra and Anton. In some ways they’re total opposites, but in some ways they’re so similar (to the point where multiple people bemoan “oh God, there’s two of them”). I am trying to figure out what to even write in this review because it keeps just coming out like “Their rivalry is amazing! Their frenemies with benefits is amazing! The slow development of Actual Feelings is amazing!” Look, this book is just really amazing, okay? Stop reading this review and just go read the book, haha!
This is the first book in the Puckboys series. It can be read as a stand-alone, but prepare to desire the stories for EVERY SIDE CHARACTER. There are also some mentions of other characters in Eden Finley’s other series, including Ollie from Deke and Soren from Hat Trick in the Fake Boyfriends series, as well as some spoilers for West’s story in Puck Drills & Cheap Thrills in the CU Hockey series.
A digital ARC of this book was provided by the publisher for review. All opinions are unbiased and my own.
