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.

Warning: contains sexual situations, skinny-dipping, shenanigans in an SUV and proof that coming out to your family on social media is a dicey proposition.

"I read HIM in one sitting—it's so, so good! If I had to pick two authors who I'd have team up, it would be Bowen and Kennedy"

— #1 New York Times bestselling author Colleen Hoover


  • Great book, even if you don’t know much about hockey

    Based on descriptions for the next books in the series, I figured out how the book would likely end. Even with that, I still thoroughly enjoyed the book. The sexy scenes fit in well with the overall story. Don’t hesitate to give this book a chance.

  • Heartwarming and Passionate

    I can honestly say that this is one if not the best M/M romance novel I’ve ever read. The struggles of the LGBTQ+ community is portrayed accurately and the fact that the ending was happy made the novel all the better. Certain books and movies tend to end LGBTQ+ movies in sad heart wrenching endings. It’s so refreshing to read a good storyline that finally portrays love as love, and that anything is possible because of it. Hahaha can you tell I’m a sucker for romance ;)

    Very well written, maintains your attention......and honestly portrays LGBTQ life in the closet, or outside of it.
