Can your favorite hockey players finish their first season together undefeated?
Five months in, NHL forward Ryan Wesley is having a record-breaking rookie season. He’s living his dream of playing pro hockey and coming home every night to the man he loves—Jamie Canning, his longtime best friend turned boyfriend. There’s just one problem: the most important relationship of his life is one he needs to keep hidden, or else face a media storm that will eclipse his success on the ice.
Jamie loves Wes. He really, truly does. But hiding sucks. It’s not the life Jamie envisioned for himself, and the strain of keeping their secret is taking its toll. It doesn’t help that his new job isn’t going as smoothly as he’d hoped, but he knows he can power through it as long as he has Wes. At least apartment 10B is their retreat, where they can always be themselves.
Or can they?
When Wes’s nosiest teammate moves in upstairs, the threads of their carefully woven lie begin to unravel. With the outside world determined to take its best shot at them, can Wes and Jamie develop major-league relationship skills on the fly?
Warning: contains sexual situations, a vibrating chair, long-distance sexytimes and proof that hockey players look hot in any shade of green.


Oh I was so happy to get read more about Wes and Jamie and so mad I waited to do it. They really are the best. I wasn’t sure where their story was going to go since  loved where it had ended in Him but I shouldn’t have worried. We got to see what their first year together is like while Wes is in the NHL and Jamie is coaching. A first year in a relationship with weird work schedules would be hard for anyone but while they are trying to not let out the fact that they are gay and in a relationship proves to be a strain for them.  I totally found it all believable and felt bad for both of them while they were going through this.

Even with the rough time it doesn’t mean you couldn’t still feel the chemistry between these two. They work so well together and oh man those sexy times. While I don’t think there were as many or they were as steamy as the first book they were still done really well.

We also get to meet some of Wes’s teammates and the best by far os Blake. He was such a fun addition to the group. He is loud and kind of obnoxious but means well and winds up being a really good friend.

Overall I think this was such a well done sequel and totally worth picking up if you loved Him. And if you haven’t read Him you totally should!

  1. Hi, Grace! I haven’t been around for a while, so I’m trying to catch up now. I really enjoyed Him, and had all intentions to read the second book, I haven’t. One of the reasons that like you I loved where it had ended in Him and didn’t want any more drama for Wes and Jamie. Glad to hear you enjoyed Us, and thanks for reminding me about this book.
