They don’t play for the same team. Or do they?
Jamie Canning has never been able to figure out how he lost his closest friend. Four years ago, his tattooed, wise-cracking, rule-breaking roommate cut him off without an explanation. So what if things got a little weird on the last night of hockey camp the summer they were eighteen? It was just a little drunken foolishness. Nobody died.
Ryan Wesley’s biggest regret is coaxing his very straight friend into a bet that pushed the boundaries of their relationship. Now, with their college teams set to face off at the national championship, he’ll finally get a chance to apologize. But all it takes is one look at his longtime crush, and the ache is stronger than ever.
Jamie has waited a long time for answers, but walks away with only more questions—can one night of sex ruin a friendship? If not, how about six more weeks of it? When Wesley turns up to coach alongside Jamie for one more hot summer at camp, Jamie has a few things to discover about his old friend... and a big one to learn about himself.
I first read Him by Sarina Bowen and Elle Kennedy in September of 2015! It was one of my very first exclusively M/M books and it couldn’t have been a better example of all things wonderful!
Jamie Canning and Ryan Wesley were best friends who crossed a line one night that they didn’t know how to uncross. Ryan walks away from their friendship without looking back or so Jamie thinks. When the two meet up again, their college hockey teams are matched up for the national championship. These two friends find out that they never truly left their feelings behind and begin again. That friendship quickly catches fire again and these two men cannot deny what those two boys ran from any longer. The worst part of being grownups and in the public eye as a professional athlete is hiding. We get to see what happens behind the scene of a relationship that is so beautiful and so loving at the same time that it seems almost impossible.
I absolutely love this book so darn much!! Wesmie has stayed with me and I’ve read it and it’s follow up books countless times. I’ve never mentioned this book to someone and not been met with equal passion and love for this story. This series and this couple made me laugh and cry and cheer so loud for love! I remember thinking about how love is love and all love should be cherished, this book is such a wonderful example of those beliefs. The friendship, the family, the team and the couple in the middle of it all are quite simply amazing! #WesmieForever
