    Fine I'll admit it I was wary going in Sometimes when a book is so hyped up it falls short of expectations Plus the authors write mainly MF and I did not want a Chicks with Dicks repeat Thankfully what I got was Hockey Players with Dicks I approve Ryan Wesley and Jamie Canning are CRAZY HAWT together and the sex scenes are through the roof scorching Jamie figures out he's bi not just gay for Ryan which I appreciated I'm not a fan of GFY as it mostly strikes me as falseThe alternative first person POVs worked fairly well I did not have trouble figuring out who was talking Some of the dialogue is a little juvenile as other reviewers have pointed out but considering that the MCs are 22 and grew up in locker rooms I found their sometimes crass way of talking believable After all they are jocks and this is what many jocks are like Plus when the MCs are alone their friendship transcends pranks and teasing I loved the synergy between these two I know next to nothing about hockey but the sports talk didn't overwhelm the story Honorable mentions go to Coach Pat Jamie's funfuckingtastic family their FB responses Holly for not being a bitch Condom sofa Awkward yet steamy sex fest in the backseat of a rather small car Ryan's tattoo grabs a tissue Totes feel good HEAJamie does muse about female anatomy too often at the beginning I could have done without the many mentions of tits and pussy fuck you very much But I enjoyed this fairly low angst sexy as hell and ultimately sweet estranged BFFs to lovers story

    Him HIM HIIIIMMMMMMMM Easily one of my favorite books from this year Easily And raise your hand if you are surprised?? cricketsThis book was aaaammmmmaaaazzziiiinnngggI started listening to this book on a road trip with one of my friends and let me tell you that car got STEAMY This book is HOT and when I got home from the trip I spent the next five hours listening so I could hear how it endedThe audio for this book was really really excellent and a good audiobook always bumps up my rating and improves my feelings about a story There are two narrators for this story Teddy Hamilton who did the voice of Jamie Canning and Jacob Morgan who did the voice of Ryan Wesley I preferred the narration of Jacob Morgan for his sexy understated performance but both guys did a PHENOMENAL job There was so much emotion so much talent in their voices that I KNOW that both of these guys will be on my audiobook radar Why don't MM authors or MF for that matter use them? These guys are A team materialBut the story is what got me Just right in the feels I just DIED over it First of all I'm a huge fan of sexual discovery stories as I'll call them and I LOVED discovering Jamie's bisexuality along with him And loooord you guys know I love a view spoilerbutt virgin hide spoiler

    45 stars Him is one of those books I waited for FOREVER to read and now that I have I’m over here kicking myself for waiting so long This one was SO GOOD I loved Wes and JamieWes and Jamie went to the same hockey camp every summer throughout their teenage years They became best friends and had a great relationship Something happened Wes’s last year of camp and the two lost touch That 'something' being that Wes started to develop feelings for Jamie and it terrified him so he uit talking to him Fast forward about 4 years later and Jamie and Wes run into each other during their final year of college when they have a hockey game playing one another Their friendship is reunited and all those feelings start to come back for Wes The only problem? Jamie doesn’t play for the same team as Wes Or does he? 

Gah I loved these two together Their friendship and the chemistry they both shared It was all fantastic
 “Our mouths fit together so perfectly Every time we kiss I fall even in love with him and it has nothing to do with sex or lust It's him His closeness and his scent and the way he soothes me” 
I listened to the audiobook of Him and let me tell you Jacob Morgan KILLS it His narration is complete perfection for Wes Teddy Hamilton does a great job voicing Jamie as well but there is something about Wes’s voice If you haven’t read these definitely pick up the audio and if you’ve read them and loved them consider picking up the audio for a re read They were that good This is a fantastic friends to loversmmsports romance I adored it and I’m jumping into book 2 US straight away And of course I’ll be listening to the audio book 
 “Loved you every summer since I was thirteen years old Love you even now”

    4 StarsThis was such an adorable feel good story “Him” was a friends to lovers GFY story that made me smile or grin times that I can count It was sweet it was sexy it was simply a fantastic read Honestly I’m not really a sports romance fan but I didn’t care about this aspect in this case since this book it’s written by two authors I really enjoyJamie Canning and Ryan Wesley used to be best friends They used to spend together six weeks every summer at a hockey camp on Lake Placid Until everything changed between themSomething happened that summer that made Wes to end their friendship leaving Jamie confused It’s been nearly four years since Jamie had spoken or seen Wes but he still misses his friend and occasionally thinks about him While Wes never returned to the hockey camp Jamie returned every summer as a coach Wes gets a second chance to make things right with his former best friend when their college teams set to face off at the national championship From the moment Wes lays his eyes on Jamie he knows he still has feelings for him He accepts to coach alongside Jamie on Lake Placid hockey camp hoping Jamie will forgive him and eventually they will be friends again What he never expected is for Jamie to accepts so easily that he’s gay and also to discover one thing or two about himself “Him” was a great sweet and steamy story with two endearing characters that I loved reading about I liked both Jamie and Wes and I have to say their romance made my heart melt They were cute together to say the least and I enjoyed seeing them getting to know each other again as friends and later as lovers I think they complemented each other really well and that’s why their chemistry was so fantastic It also was done really well and it was palpable from start to finish I enjoyed all kind all mm romances but my favorite is GFY mm novels when one of the characters or both of them is are struggling to accept the 'new' reality that he is they are gay or like in this case bi While Jamie didn’t struggle too much with everything like I expected I think his self discovery felt natural I really liked how he handled everything he figured out about himself There’s no stupid unnecessary drama even if the two guys have to face some obstacles which I enjoyed Like I mentioned above “Him” was a steamy romance And when I say steamy I mean steamy steamy This aspect of the story was fantastically done The sexy moments between these two were hot intense and at times even a little emotional So to say that I enjoyed them a lot would be an understatement Loved every single one of themThis novel had also plenty of funny moments These guys made me laugh as much as they made me swoon Their banter was so great and I liked how easily they interacted with each other and how every single one of their interactions felt natural Nothing between them felt forced Their bond felt real and even if four years had passed since they saw each other their connection it’s stronger than ever I have to say one thing about this awesome read I loved loved Jamie’s family I loved how they were with each other and how wonderful and supportive were not only with Jamie but with Wes as wellThey were pure and simple fantasticAll in all “Him” was a great sweet and sexy NA mm romance with likeable main characters great steam and banter and a tender romance

    45 stars Ryan Wesley and Jamie Canning are best of friends especially during the summer months they spend on Lake Placid where the two of them are enrolled in a summer hockey program Despite seeing each other for only two months out of the year they've bonded and considered each other best of friendsOn their last summer there before going off to college something happened which caused Wes to end their friendship leaving Jamie confused as to why Fast forward to four years later and both of their teams are in the Frozen Four Hockey tournamentBy then Wes is or less out of the closet and as much as he wants to pursue his feelings for his best friend he can't because as far as he knows Jamie is straight An opportunity to coach teen hockey players at the same camp where he and Jamie met gave Wes an opportunity to come out to Jamie do right by their friendshipJamie is still trying to understand what happened all those years ago And learning about Wes sexuality explained a lot of the decisions Wes made but it doesn't explain Jamie's growing attraction to his best friend It doesn't explain why he's suddenly discovering stuff about himself about Wes and about the fact that he wants nothing than to spend time with Wes and explore the growing feelings between them And holy sweet mother did they exploreHim is a great gateway MM read for romance readers looking to try the mm category It has great banter fantastic chemistry and two very likable leads I admit that Wes annoyed me at first He's cocky and he made an arbitrary decision that hurt his best friend But very early on he won me over with his sincerity and depth of feelings for JamieTo be honest I was worried with the set up because Jamie for all intents and purposes is straight But Sarina and Elle did a wonderful job handling that aspect Jamie self discovery felt natural It didn't feel contrived Both Jamie and Wes have to face obstacles but when it comes to their feelings for each other it's clear to me as a reader that they belong together Their relationship felt raw and sincere and so so hotA word of advice Do not under any circumstances read this book in public or even semi public I'm not a blushing person but I've lost count how many times Wes and Jamie made me blush and smile like a lunatic Both authors captured the emotion perfectly and I just couldn't help but fall in love with Wes and JamieI really enjoyed this book And I think that Elle and Sarina's style blended so well it reads like there's only one person writing this book and not two The writing was seamless and I can't wait to read from these two either individually or together ARC provided by the authors in exchange for an honest reviewSo this happened Of course I ask myself Am I going to read it?

    RE READ 11102016 Audio version ➦I always suggest this book to those who haven't read any MM before but I've never even bothered to write a review for this awesome read ➦I'll be honest a year ago I was very apprehensive to try MM myself But Only 10% into this story I knew I could never go back When it's done well like in this book here it can be oh so thoroughly enjoyable➦So I thought a re read was in order and I'm very pleased to report that the book was just as great for me the second time around Oh and the audio version is pretteh steamy➦Jamie and Wes Two teenage hockey players at a hockey camp One shootout challenge Prize blowjob FUNNY? May be just for one of them Because for Wes it's not funny at all it's something he wants desperately because the feelings he harbors for his best friend are very real ➦But is tricking his best friend into getting blown something that can ruin the friendship? Well the answer is yes and it's not really a spoiler because the book picks up years later when the two meet yet again ➦Both are in college and play for hockey teams and are about to go pro Will they be able to get their friendship repaired? Oh just freakin' read the book would ya? D➦If you have never read any MM this would be the book to test the waters It is super hot but incredibly sweet at the same time Don't worry if you aren't into sport romances the book doesn't concentrate all that much on the actual playing of hockey The character development is great and you will fall in love with both Wes and Jamie

    45 Purple Skittles STARSWell this was my first full on foray into MM I’d dabbled before with other stories where it was a side story and had liked it Now I get the allurethere's something that's almost naughty or sinful about it in a delightfully delicious way And it's scorching HOT I’m a big fan of Elle Kennedy found and fell for her with her Off Campus series and have never read a Sarina Bowen book before – I’ll be rectifying that STAT This was a really great fast sexy read and the writing style was easy engaging and seamless; would never have guessed it was co authoredWe have two hot college hockey players Jamie Canning and Ryan Wesley aka Wes who were best friends throughout their high school years at Hockey summer camp But they haven't spoken to each other for four years because of what happened their last night together and now they must face each other Wes has loved Jamie since he was 13 and while he knows they can't have because Jamie is straight Wes misses his friend and wants to make amendsCanning can't give me what I want but I still can't stop myself from wanting it I want whatever I can get a conversation a joke gift a smile anything I might not be able to have the steak but fuck I I'm fine with some scrapsThe story moves uickly as these two reconnect work through their past and also come to realize a few things about each other While there was a lot of sweet and hot sex scenes there wasn't a lot of angst or drama There was one little blip but it didn't last for long I'm not all for dramas sake but would have wanted a bit of a struggle Needless to day this was a great read and would recommend those who love MM or either of these authors or for that matter if you're feeling adventurous and want to try something new I say go for itNow that the cherry's been popped I'll be looking to expand my horizons and am open to suggestions An advance reading copy of Him by Sarina Bowen and Elle Kennedy was generously provided in exchange for an honest reviewFor reviews and blog posts
