He’s hot for teacher
NHL star Tristan Holt may be at the top of his game, but he’s already thinking one play ahead. Hitting the books in the off-season means he’ll have a business degree to fall back on when it’s time to hang up his hockey skates.
But his straightforward plan is complicated by his undeniable attraction to his sexy sociology professor, Sebastian Cruz.
Impressed by Tristan’s brain as well as his brawn, Sebastian can’t help lusting after the gorgeous jock. With tenure on the line, Sebastian won’t break the rules by becoming involved with one of his students—at least, not until the end of term. Once final grades are posted, though, their naughty mutual fantasies can become reality.
Tristan’s not sure he’s up for being the poster boy for openly gay hockey players, but Sebastian’s never been the type of man to keep his sexuality—or his relationships—in the closet. For Tristan, being with Sebastian might mean risking more than just his heart.

Lots of yummy in one book
If someone had told me all of the tropes and extras that were going to be in this book, I would have said that it had to be a mess, because no way could it all work. I would have been wrong. There’s student/teacher, closeted pro athlete, some mild kink, and age gap just to name a few.
It’s not very angsty, the relationship is the central focus, and some outside forces impact it, but are fairly quickly resolved. Sebastian and Tristan were both really well developed, with great banter and dialogue. The secondary cast of characters was amazing, and nicely sets up the next books (which I am so excited for).
There were some minor things that didn’t work for me, but it was completely personal preference.
I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader’s copy.
