Summary

TRIPP

The worst part of being in love with my straight best friend is the fact he’s too oblivious to see it. 

Years of pining have left me exhausted, and I need a break from Dex. I need space to get over my feelings. But when his relationship falls apart and he turns to me for comfort, I cave immediately. 

If there’s one thing I hate more than being hurt, it’s seeing Dex struggle. I can’t leave him in a time of need, even if my friends say it’s my biggest downfall. 

They say Dexter Mitchale is my weakness, but if that’s true, I don’t want to be strong.

DEX

I’ve always been the dumb one. It’s what I’m known for, and usually I don’t let it get to me.

I have hockey, and I have my best friend, Tripp. What more do I need? To settle down? No thank you. Marriage? Hard pass. According to ex-girlfriends, that makes me “irresponsible”. 

But the solution I come up with to get over my fear of commitment might be my dumbest idea yet. Not only does it have team management breathing down my neck, but it puts a strain on my friendship with Tripp.

This PR nightmare could lose me the only person I’ve ever loved. Losing girlfriends is nothing. Losing Tripp? It’s not an option.

I’ll do whatever it takes to keep him.

I wasn't buying it.

Nothing special. I was not sold on the straight man suddenly falling for a gay friend. The rest was the same as every other mediocre story I have read before. Both narrators did a good job.

LOL steamy goodness

Dex and Tripp are in my top 3 favorite couples. I love their story and the steam after the slow burn start was well worth the wait. Alexander Cendese and Iggy Toma are two of my favorite narrators and were perfect for Dex and Tripp. Now I need more dual narratored books from them because good writing + Toma + Cendese = THE hat trick of audiobooks.

I hate doing this but

I just can't give this story a positive review. The whole premise is just so ridiculous and not in a charming "ohhh what a sweet potato he is" way. I can't even finish and seriously considered breaking my "you can't return audiobooks because Amazon sucks" rule . I like these authors and usually find their antics for the boys entertaining but this premise is just - no thank you.
The whole book is going to be Tripp "I love him and he can't know" over and over and over while Dex just skips along like like Laura Ingalls through the daisies ? Didn't get past chapter 6 because I refuse to spend 5 more hours annoyed that they can't just talk to each other even though they are together all the time - they'll probably end up on a vacation together and have to share a bed blah blah blah

so maybe don't take this review too seriously because I may not know what the heck I'm talking about 😉 I found Ezra to be completely unlikable in the first book and now this ... I'll just wait for the next series or book by each author .

I’m loving this series.

I have enjoyed hockey for a long time but once I started reading this series as well as the other series I have enjoyed hockey even more. These two were an accident waiting to happen. It just amazes me how clueless Dex is. He has to be somewhat intelligent to play hockey with the different plays and knowing how to pull off scoring. It was one of my only hang ups for this story with the way he portrayed here as being so clueless. But they both are somewhat there anyways with the fake marriage. Though I think Tripp has a tingling thought in the back of his mind that this would be the only way to get Dex. It cute how this all works out. Can’t wait for Oscar story.

Can never go wrong

Can never go wrong with narration from Iggy Toma and Alexander Cendese. And, of course, a book from Eden Finley and Saxon James. Also, for whatever reason I love hockey romances - which is weird because I don’t care for hockey IRL.
