The Chicago Rebels have set the sports world aflame by thriving, despite all indications to the contrary when the season first started. As two of the three sisters who own the team have found love and played out their love stories on the ice and in the press, it’s time for the author to turn her sights to the difficult subject of a M/M romance. Are all gay men gorgeous? Dante Moretti definitely is with his sharply pressed suits and gorgeous good looks when he dominates the stage as the general manager of the team. There’s a lot riding on this season. The team must make the finals to survive. He definitely can’t let his lust for defenseman Cade Burnett take the focus away from winning. Then Cade shows up at a gay night club that Dante patronizes and that’s all she wrote.
Cade is deeply in the closet and afraid to acknowledge his desires. Yet he shows up at Dante’s club with the intent to seduce Dante. The author leads us through Cade’s desires, choices, and dilemma with a rare sensitivity while delivering a beautiful love story. While I am not normally a fan of M/M, their romance is hot and emotional and hit all the right notes for me as a reader.
The dilemma and choices that face a gay pro-athlete are addressed with a rare sensitivity as the love story plays out between the two guys. It’s not all sweet and light and smooth sailing, but, all in all, this book is a not-to-be-missed addition to the series.
I can’t wait for the last sister to find her love story and yet I am sad that it will mean the end of a fantastic series.
Dante Moretti has just landed his dream job: GM of the Chicago Rebels. And screw the haters who think there should be an asterisk next to his name because he’s the first out managing executive in pro hockey. He’s earned the right to be here and nothing will topple him off that perch—especially not an incredibly inconvenient attraction to his star defenseman, Cade “Alamo” Burnett. Cade has always been careful to keep his own desires on the down low, but his hot Italian boss proves to be a temptation he can’t resist. Sure, they both have so much to lose, but no one will ever know…
As Dante and Cade’s taboo affair heats up off the ice and their relationship gets more and more intense, they’ll have to decide: is love worth risking their careers? Or is this romance destined to be forever benched?
