I never knew hockey was this doggoned hot!
I like a good sports story. I love when there's heat involved. Elizabeth Jewell's book, Puck You, Two fits this bill nicely. Be warned, this is a short story and it's part of a series. That said, I didn't need to read the other book - although I have - to know what was going on. There was just the right amount of backstory to keep me caught up. The writing flowed well. Yes, it's short, but I didn't wander from the story. I had to know what would happen next. There was a tension between the characters that heightened the story perfectly.
Laska and Philippe have a history. I didn't need to know all the details to know there's more to what they do than meets the eye. But good gravy what they do in this story is hot! I didn't really get to see things from Laska's point of view, but it wasn't a big deal. He doesn't hide much and is very much the what-you-see-is-what-you-get kind of guy. I enjoyed the tension Philippe dealt with. He can't decide if he wants Laska for more, but it's pretty obvious how he feels. Laska 'gets' him.
There are moments in this story that aren't for the faint of heart. If pain play isn't your thing, then this might not be the book for you. I'd say don't let that deter you. Ms. Jewell handles the play well, not making it overwhelming. It does enhance the story.
If you like a quick, hot romp, then this is the book for you. I recommend this short story!
