Authors: Elle Kennedy and Sarine Bowen

Book: Us

tl;dr recommendation: This is a story about what happens after the happily ever after. About love, life and truth. It’s also about really fucking hot sex with two incredibly gorgeous guys. Yup, you’re in.

Book Summary:

Can your favorite hockey players finish their first season together undefeated?

Five months in, NHL forward Ryan Wesley is having a record-breaking rookie season. He’s living his dream of playing pro hockey and coming home every night to the man he loves–Jamie Canning, his longtime best friend turned boyfriend. There’s just one problem: the most important relationship of his life is one he needs to keep hidden, or else face a media storm that will eclipse his success on the ice.

Jamie loves Wes. He really, truly does. But hiding sucks. It’s not the life Jamie envisioned for himself, and the strain of keeping their secret is taking its toll. It doesn’t help that his new job isn’t going as smoothly as he’d hoped, but he knows he can power through it as long as he has Wes. At least apartment 10B is their retreat, where they can always be themselves.

Or can they? When Wes’s nosiest teammate moves in upstairs, the threads of their carefully woven lie begin to unravel. With the outside world determined to take its best shot at them, can Wes and Jamie develop major-league relationship skills on the fly?

Warning: contains sexual situations, a vibrating chair, long-distance sexytimes, and proof that hockey players look hot in any shade of green.

Longer Review:

Oh my sweet wes and jamie. I wanted to coddle them and get between them (for pure comfort purposes only of course). It’s like the world will not give them a goddamn break. While Wes is in his rookie season, he’s living with Jamie, and they’re more in love than ever, that doesn’t mean that life won’t get in the way.

Wes and Jamie aren’t out. They’re out to the people who matter to them the most but not to their teammates and not to the world. Wes is terrified that it will ruin his rookie career and Jamie is terrified that Wes will never actually want to come out to the world. Their relationship isn’t fragile but it’s certainly not as solid as they’d like.

For those who already love these two you’ll be thrilled and saddened to read everything that they go through but let it be known – I love love love these characters. I ran through the gamut of emotions while reading, hitting the highs and lows with each of them.

This is a story about what happens after the happily ever after. About love, life and truth. It’s also about really fucking hot sex with two incredibly gorgeous guys. Yup, you’re in.

5 stars!
