My rating: 4.5 of 5 stars

This is a great opener for this new series from V.L. Locey which are all going to be stand-alone romances.

Indigo is fabulous, such an intriguingly drawn character, self-assured but also vulnerable, a dirty talker but also loving to snuggle up and just talk. I fell for him big time.

Mat, on the other hand, was a bit harder to build up feelings for. He’s quite reserved and he’s in the closet, he’s almost 20 years older than Indigo and I spent quite a bit of the time wanting to knock some sense into him.

There’s a great bunch of secondary characters and I loved the setting up on the St Lawrence River where Mat goes home to his island, licking his ice hockey wounds and unexpectedly falls in love.

I liked that this book felt grounded in the reality of how a gay ice hockey player would be such a huge deal and how Mat didn’t want to be the trailblazer.

Obviously, I’d love it even more if being a gay sportsman wasn’t a huge deal in the first place but I think V.L. handles this perfectly in the narrative and shows the bone-deep fears Mat harbours.

Altogether a truly hot read, this book is also an emotionally connected love story between men who shouldn’t work on paper but who are perfect for each other.
