Publisher's Summary

Asher

Hockey, studying, and school runs. That's my life now. After a tragic accident that took our parents' lives, it's up to me and my big brother to take care of our five younger siblings. In between burning their meals and keeping them from killing each other, I'm supposed to get a college degree. If I don't get my grades up, I'm in danger of losing the one thing that makes me happy: my spot on the hockey team.

Which is why when the new equipment manager offers to tutor me, I really can't afford to say no. Even though I should. He's Coach's son and way too tempting.

Kole

As this year's equipment manager for Dad's hockey team, I'm expected to deal with sweaty jock straps and herding hockey players to their rooms at away games. The job is easy, but babysitting Asher Dalton is not supposed to be a part of it. So why, when his brother asks me to keep an eye on him, do I agree? Why, when he's struggling in classes, do I offer to help? And why, when we're studying, do I suggest a reward system that lands us squarely in bed?

Asher's trouble, I know he is. But there's something about him that makes it impossible to stay away.

Contains mature themes.

love the narrators

The CU Hockey series gets better and better. I absolutely love these stories. I freakin love narrators, they are both perfect for their characters. I can't wait and I am anticipating the next story.

Such a good story!

I anxiously awaited the audiobook for this story, especially since it was done by two of my fave narrators. Once again an amazing realistic story that keep you hooked until the very end. I can’t wait until book 5 is done!

Was looking forward to this book being released to audible. Totally enjoying it. These two are so good together.

Why did you pick this guy??

Authors,
I’m very disturbed. It’s a good story that I want to give four stars to, but I wish I’d read instead of listened to the audible version.
I’m not sure how you pick your narrators, but maybe let a few folks who will tell you the truth give it a listen before publishing. Or maybe even get the berries to send a scene sample?!?!

Alexander Cendese… I’m assuming he is Asher main? Unfortunately, I almost did not finish this book because he’s reading stressed me out. Instead of following Iggy Tomas’ lead to put honest feeling in his tone and pauses where they need to be, he rushes through each scene like he didn’t appreciate the material.

Can you say whiplash? How about anxiety?? The difference in the abilities of the two narrators is staggering. With tone, speed, and the ability (or inability) to portray both main characters with different accents for their chapters.

Mega disappointed.

Deeply enchanting

So deeply enchanting. Author brings subtle feelings to the surface where along side the hot passionate sex a blossoming relationship thrives. Only a couple of narrating characters could bring it such believability. Love it and want more. Already read Puck Drills. Going to gather up the strength to listen to book one next.

Awesome Series!!!

Kole, coaches son, and Asher coaches hot head player, become a very unlikely couple. Kole hates hockey after all!!! But…Asher needs his help with classes and Kole gives him a reason to stay out of trouble. Asher and brother West have a huge responsibility on the home front and I enjoyed that part of the story!

A lot of laughs but I lot of tearing up as well!

Undoubtedly Iggy Toma and Alexander Cendese are a great narrating duo and really Alexander here was magnificent, especially in the scene were Asher was crying all over Kole and West.

This made me laugh, like A LOT! But it made me cry as well!

Asher's story is a heartbreaking one. The front he puts out there to keep himself safe from more hurt is that of a porcupine! I'll hurt you to hurt me but I don't care because that pain is superficial and keeps the pressure lead on. Kole doesn't buy Asher's attitude, he challenges him straight on with sarcasm and Asher seeing that Kole doesn't take the bait he deflates quickly.

These two are so good together and perfect for each other! Incredible banter, witty exchanges, communication and chemistry OFF THE FREAKING CHARTS!!!

The ending is the beginning of their future and a strong HFN because to me it didn't feel as a HEA, especially since Asher and Kole's dreams for the future didn't exactly align in the family department. As much as Kole thought and said about a house and a yard for Hades it seemed tentative at best. So yes these two together now are going strongly but I'm skeptical in how they'll be in 10-15 years, hence the half the star off. I think an epilogue in a few years time would have helped but maybe that would have spoilered West's story.

Loved this!

I loved Asher and Cole! These two men were so much fun with such huge hearts underneath it all. I loved how Cole stuck around even when Asher wasn't at his best and tried to work through all the walls Asher had built. The narration was fun as well with the narrators really bringing to life this story.

A consistently great college sports series!

Having lost his mother, father and stepmother, Asher and his brother West are still struggling to adjust and look after their five siblings. Asher takes it out on his fellow teammates, he’s unfriendly, has a bad attitude, and he’s failing classes. As assistant coach, West asks team equipment manager Kole to keep an eye on Asher, but Kole and Asher end up becoming study partners with benefits. This jock / nerd romance is fun and good-natured and audio narrators Alexander Cendese (as Asher) and Iggy Toma (as Kole) are, as usual, perfect for the roles. With five books in the bag so far, it does feel like the whole team is gay so it’s no surprise how well the coach (Kole’s father) and the team accept all the gay players - can’t wait for further stories!
