Having burned bridges with his previous hockey team, Troy Barrett tries to find a new place with the Ottawa Centaurs. After an altercation between Troy and his former best friend Dallas Kent, Troy was traded for standing by the women who accused Dallas of sexual assault. Shy Troy hopes to keep his head down and his personal feelings and crushes to himself, but the very cute, very outgoing, and very out Centaur social media manager Harris Drover seems determined to not only help Troy’s career, including taking a stand against sexual assault, but also to befriend him. Over frothy coffee drinks and conversations, Harris learns that Troy is more than just a stern, good-looking hockey player. When sparks ignite along with continued controversy over Troy’s support of sexual assault survivors, can Troy and Harris find their happily ever after? Reid’s fifth “Game Changers” romance takes on heavy themes of sexual assault, queer identity, and role models, without ever losing the heat and heart between her two leads. With a full team of hockey players to depict, narrator Cooper North is a star, making each character’s voice distinct and memorable, including returning series favorites.
VERDICT A wonderful listen, highly recommended for all library audio collections.
