As the new head coach of the Vancouver Orcas, Matt Shore has got his work cut out for him. Coming off a season where the Orcas came in last in the entire AHL, Matt's job is to whip his new hockey team into shape for the oncoming season.
He doesn't need any distractions, especially not one in the form of a tall, dark, and gorgeous antiques dealer.
Who's also his ex—and his best player's father.
Pierce Langley-Brown has a lot of regrets. The biggest? Leaving Matt behind two years ago when his son needed him. Now, with his son on Matt's hockey team, there's no avoiding the man who once owned his heart.
Not that Pierce wants to avoid him. And that heart? It still belongs to Matt.
But will Matt choose to keep it after all this time?
Powerful Love Story
If you want to read a believable love story that you can really get into reading…this is it.
This story (book 1 of a 3 book series) comes with baggage, & a lot of it. And what happens at the beginning will rip your heart. But isn’t that life? No one gets everything they want the first time. Sometimes it takes a few tries, but when it's right, then…
There are struggles, abandonment issues & rightfully so, work issues (yeah who hasn’t been there), & a son who was naïve about a relationship he knew nothing about.
Sorry for being so vague, but I hate 'spoil alerts' & it’s that good of a book/series that I don’t want to destroy any of it for you.
So if you want to be steeped away, then is is the perfect gay love story…
A complicated second chance
Four and a half stars
Game Plan by Amy Aislin is the first in her new Vancouver Orcas m/m hockey series. Coach Matt Shore and Pierce Langley-Brown have history. And when Pierce‘s son ends up traded to the Orcas, Matt and Pierce suddenly also have a very complicated second chance.
Amy Aislin’s story is well written and hard to put down. Pierce and Matt are well matched but a family emergency sent Pierce spiraling and broke both their hearts. Finding their way through forgiveness and reconciliation is a very real challenge, as is navigating the minefield of opening up about their renewed relationship with those who know and love them best and also with those who feel as if they’re stakeholders. Ms Aislin’s writing balances the excitement of this AHL team’s season with Matt and Pierce’s more personal concerns.
A great read, and I’m eagerly awaiting the rest of the series!
