Him by Sarina Bowen and Elle Kennedy

They don’t play for the same team. Or do they?

Jamie Canning has never been able to figure out how he lost his closest friend. Four years ago, his tattooed, wise-cracking, rule-breaking roommate cut him off without an explanation. So what if things got a little weird on the last night of hockey camp the summer they were eighteen? It was just a little drunken foolishness. Nobody died.

Ryan Wesley’s biggest regret is coaxing his very straight friend into a bet that pushed the boundaries of their relationship. Now, with their college teams set to face off at the national championship, he’ll finally get a chance to apologize. But all it takes is one look at his longtime crush, and the ache is stronger than ever.

Jamie has waited a long time for answers, but walks away with only more questions—can one night of sex ruin a friendship? If not, how about six more weeks of it? When Wesley turns up to coach alongside Jamie for one more hot summer at camp, Jamie has a few things to discover about his old friend...and a big one to learn about himself.

Warning: contains sexual situations, skinny dipping, shenanigans in an SUV and proof that coming out to your family on social media is a dicey proposition.

Bella's 5 Star Review

I SO loved this book!!

I'm a big fan of Elle Kennedy and Sarina Bowen so when I learned they were writing a book together I was so excited! To learn that it was M/M was the frosting on the cake.

What I loved about this book:
- The writing. Seriously. I can't believe it was written by 2 people. It was seamless and so easy to read.
- Friends to lovers - Jamie and Wes - despite not having seen each other for a while - know each other. They have history and their relationship goes deeper than a spark attraction.
- Chemistry - omg. I loved the chemistry between Jamie and Wes. I loved Jamie's self discovery. In the beginning of the book he is straight, then as he recognizes his attraction to Wes he realizes he maybe isn't as straight as he thought he was. The sex between these two is HOT!

This is a light, easy, sexy, romantic read. Not to much angst or drama. But it kept me turning the pages - I couldn't get enough. It was one of those - I can't stop reading, but I don't want it to end so maybe I should take a break so it will last longer - no way I need to see what happens next!!

I highly recommend!!

Some of the quotes I highlighted:

"It's not an exaggeration to say I've always felt a little more alive when he's around. Life is just a little brighter, a little louder wherever Wes is."

"He doesn't need skill - he just needs to be here. Him. Here. With me."

"My dick and I reached an understanding."
"Yeah? And what's that?" I ask curiously.
He shrugs. "We both like you."
