Heated Rivalry: 2 (Game Changers)
About this deal
Ahora leeré los demás de la serie para llegar al sexto que es la continuación de está maravillosa historia. This book is to 90% about the two main characters, and it covers 10 years of their passionate, but also forbidden relationship.
Definitely I will post about Tough Guy soon, and about the audiobooks when there is more info to share. It was so confusing; I didn't understand what was the mood I was supposed to go for while I was reading.I absolutely loathe in sports books where one MC forces the other to come out to prove their love (which was one of my complaints about the first book in this series). But of course, both of those last scenes then had to be ruined by making them sexual because the two were pretty damn incapable of having one scene where they simply talked. To all my friends who have constantly recommended this to me (some of you have even begged), believe me when I say I’m mad that I didn’t like this. I was scared to do this audiobook because of the horrible experience I had with book one in the series.
Shane and Ilya do see other people over the course of their strange sex arrangement and they do talk about having sex with other partners a lot. I listened to the audiobook and enjoyed the narration by Thor Thom, who brilliantly brought to life the character of Ilya.Because I expected certain things to happen and was pleasantly surprised when cliches were circumvented. Tor does such a great job with the narration, the characters have a distinctive voice and the accent is well done.
I am still on the fence about book 1 , Game Changer and it's more than likely , I will be skipping it. In the prologue, Shane mentions that Ilya has a broken nose and his teeth have gotten replaced quite a few times throughout their hockey career by then, but not once does any of that actually come up in the story as we progress through and see their relationship play out during that time? Then there’s a line thrown in where Ilya mentions that he’s worried that this is hereditary and he could one day have Alzheimer’s too and we just don’t really circle back to this or address that at all in this book. They were so vibrant and I could feel all their emotions: their dislike for one another, their confusion, their laughter, their yearning.not the best and off putting but I’ve listened to him before and he’s brilliant and he BRINGS it full force in this one. Most of the other reviews of this book are positive though so you should probably check out some of them.
