My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Well, I never saw that coming.
There is a huge plot game changer in this book which I won’t be revealing, not even with spoilers, but let me just say, it’s superbly done.
The whole book, the sixth in an outstanding series, is exceptionally good, bringing together Gatlin, the guy who inks the Railers at his tattoo parlour, and reserve goalie Bryan.
There’s lots of serious subjects touched on but the book never loses sight of the romance between these two men.
And Bryan so desperately needs to know he’s loved and be loving in return as his so-called called boyfriend is an utter arse who I wanted to punch after the first 5% of the book!
Gatlin is perfect for him, calming and a solid rock of support even as he deals with his own hang-ups. Goal Line also focuses in on what I call “made family” – the people you surround yourself with who are only ever uplifting and encouraging.
There’s the usual tensions which come with professional ice hockey, but this one goes the extra mile and, unusually for these authors, not all plots are tied up by the end. Don’t worry though, there’s no cliffhanger and Gatlin and Bryan are very much a solid team enjoying a HEA when it closes.
Now, Ryker’s story needs to get here asap please ladies 🙂
