One man’s passion, another man’s lies. Can love fix even the darkest of hearts?
Trent Hanson is a figure skating phenom adored by millions around the world. His whole life has been dedicated to the sport he loves even when the sport – and his own family – have turned against him. From the playground to the Olympics to his parent’s living room, Trent has fought against bullies and homophobes to be the out and proud gay man he is. But the constant fighting has left Trent tired, lonely, and skittish. All those fears will have to be shelved though when he’s hired to spend the summer working with the Harrisburg Railers ice hockey team. Who would have guessed that the man fate has decided to pair him off with is Dieter Lehmann, all-around sex god and a man who seems to have everything to prove and doesn’t care who he hurts to get what he wants.
Dieter has spent too many years languishing in the minors and a secret addiction to prescription painkillers means his career is in a downward spiral. His ex is blackmailing him and he’s close to walking away from it all. But when he’s called up in the run for the Stanley Cup to cover injuries he has a taste of what it’s like playing in the NHL and he realizes that a place on the Railers roster is what he wants more than anything. More than listening to his heart, and even more than caring for the infuriating figure skater who gets under his skin. When he crosses the line to get what he wants, he knows he has lost his way. He has to change, but is it too late for both his career and any chance he might have at love?
Deep Edge Review
(Rating 4 out of 5 stars)
Deep Edge is Book 3 of the Harrisburg Railers series and actually overlaps books 1 and 2 a bit in timing. There is a lot going on in this hockey romance book but never does the drama overlap the developing relationship. It was a great balance of angst, romance, and hockey!
Both of these characters are incredibly flawed but very real. Dieter is battling an addiction to pain pills and an attempted blackmailing by an ex-girlfriend. He is bisexual and has a definite interest in Trent, their feisty figure skating instructor.
Trent has his own issues. He is broke and desperate to keep a roof over his mom and grandmother’s heads. He has a serious issue with jocks and really has no desire to teach them how to be faster and more graceful on their skates. But money talks and he takes on his new role as a reality TV star. He has a bit of a chip on his shoulder but Dieter slowly breaks through it.
I love the secondary characters that they author created. Trent’s mom and grandmother are very well developed characters and they really add a wonderful layer to this hockey romance book. I love the guys on the team as well and I can’t wait until Stan gets his own story!
Overall, this is a great book with just the right blend of angst, romance, passion, and hockey to keep me turning the pages. Another hit by two of my favorite authors!
