Ryan Wesley and Jamie Canning used to spend every summer together at a hockey camp since they were fourteen. Every six weeks of those summers made them inseparable until that one night of their last summer together that cost their friendship. After almost four years without contact, the former best friends reunited again at a hockey game and it seems that they have not lost that spark between them. Another six weeks at the summer camp led them to confront their feelings but what are they willing to give up in order to have each other?
I think this may just be one of my favorite reads this year. Initially, I was thinking that their reminiscin’ of that particular night that cost their friendship (from Ryan’s end at least) will drag on until Christmas but I thank all the gods that the story picked up easily from their first reunion in years and at the camp – ugh, just yum-yum galore from there.
I loved the simple storytelling here. It was quick and on-point. I loved how we get to see both men’s vulnerability and when their moment of clarity came up – I was relieved at no end. I loved my boys getting their happily ever after and this one definitely has it.
This is my first book from both authors so I’m really excited to see what they would have to offer or if they could offer more for the MM genre.
