Why enemies to lovers relationships seem more realistic to me than a pro hockey player meeting a love interest at a smoothie joint, I have no idea.

First, I just want to say that I have been completely blown away and giddy over the love and support Heated Rivalry has received since its release in March. It starts with a simple rivals to lovers story but it quickly gives each character so much depth and background as they struggle to come to terms with who they are from age 18 on. I find that things get mentioned in this story that has no payoff in the end and I just don’t understand it. Often with these stories you get a lot about rules,tactics,etc but I never felt that here-in fact I might have fallen in love with ice hockey a bit. I recently got a retail job so let’s just blame that on taking over my brain and pretend this story was memorable.At the beginning I could really feel how much these two characters disliked each other (mostly because they couldn't stop loving to hate each other in the bedroom, if you know what I mean), but at the same time I could also see the underlining respect and attraction they had for one another. I thought that was something that really showed the author's skill of keeping it authentic and following a character's personality to the end. Before I was a quarter of the way through it, I knew HEATED RIVALRY would be one of my favorite books of 2019–and I was right.

It’s impressive and for that so incredibly romantic that they held on to that impossible thing between them for all these years. I know we usually associate classics with books from the 1800s or whatnot, but HR is a classic MM, especially sports-romance/hockey romance, along with Him. Read more about the condition New: A new, unread, unused book in perfect condition with no missing or damaged pages.While I have come to LOVE Shane and Ilya, I had problems with the story I didn’t have with the first book and I am sad about that, because I was really looking forward to this book. This was a bit of a slow burn, following the relationship of Shane and Ilya, rival hockey players, over the course of 7 years with them hooking up occasionally when their teams played against each other. Some we receive from the authors, some we receive from the publisher, and some we receive through a third party service like Net Galley. The fourth and fifth books in the series will be Ilya and Shane’s second book, and Kyle’s book (you remember Kyle the bartender from Game Changer? I knew this was insta-lust, and know that beforehand actually helps, but not when the whole book is that.

Instead, he crushed their mouths together and kissed Shane in a raw, uncontrolled way that felt like an apology. And that’s all I can tell you about those books for now, except the end of Tough Guy will set up the second Ilya and Shane book. But of course, both of those last scenes then had to be ruined by making them sexual because the two were pretty damn incapable of having one scene where they simply talked. It was how we’re set to believe they’ve known each other for six years, yet all they did for the majority of the book was hook up.I don’t know much about hockey, but after reading this I definitely have a new found love for the sport.
