SUMMARY
Jamie Canning has never been able to figure out how he lost his closest friend. Four years ago, his tattooed, wise-cracking, rule-breaking roommate cut him off without an explanation. So what if things got a little weird on the last night of hockey camp the summer they were eighteen? It was just a little drunken foolishness. Nobody died. Ryan Wesley’s biggest regret is coaxing his very straight friend into a bet that pushed the boundaries of their relationship. Now, with their college teams set to face off at the national championship, he’ll finally get a chance to apologize. But all it takes is one look at his longtime crush, and the ache is stronger than ever. Jamie has waited a long time for answers, but walks away with only more questions—can one night of sex ruin a friendship? If not, how about six more weeks of it? When Wesley turns up to coach alongside Jamie for one more hot summer at camp, Jamie has a few things to discover about his old friend... and a big one to learn about himself.
WARNING: contains sexual situations, hotties on hockey skates, skinnydipping, shenanigans in an SUV and proof that coming out to your family on social media is a dicey proposition.

MY REVIEW

While I'm no stranger to Elle Kennedy's writing, I still had to try anything by Sarina Bowen and I thought this was the perfect 'excuse'—as if I need one, right? It also came highly recommended to me, so you see how I couldn't really delay this any further.

This book has so much more to offer than two hot guys—and I mean so HOT that could melt the ice they skate on—and a very scorching chemistry, it shows what a hard time they have coming to terms with their own feelings and facing their promising futures. Decisions aren't easy and when insecurities kick in, you can certainly end up making the wrong one... There's no way to turn back time, but sure enough there's time to make amends, and fight for what feels right. Jamie and Wesley's friendship might not be completely ruined after all, but can they truly make out up for what happened, or their special summer camp will just complicate things? What's certain is that hockey always makes for a good time.

I adored this book, I genuinely loved the emotions running through the story, I really liked the characters and I was enraptured by the moments they spent together. Also, the writing is so fluent that you won't know when to stop reading, and why would you? Sit, relax, and have a blast with Him!

RATING: 4.5/5
