the connection they once sharednow uring this timeconnection they once sharedNow uring this time has told Derek that their night in bed was a colossal mistake and that he isn t actually gay He even has an evil blonde bimbo girlfriend who treats Derek like In deinen Schuhen dirt every chance she gets It should be noted that there are only 3 woman in this book Ashley Trevor s girlfriend Melanie a PR rep for the team and Derek s mom With the exception of Derek s mom who we only briefly see twice the women in this book are portrayed as evil and conniving Trevor even refers to Melanie as the wicked witch at one point The authoroesn t give women any place in this book and even goes so far as to berate them via the MCs Example from Derek s inner monologue I swear the longer I was in Detroit the I acted like a chick Someone must have stolen my นครอรุณรุ่ง dick and replaced it with a vagina I been extra concerned about my appearance pining over Trevor practically analyzing his every word and action and overly emotional at times And if you think the women are being London (1805-1946): Cassini Historical Maps (BX5-LON) disrespected it is nothing compared to what gay men get Derek is in the closet and had no plans to come out so he plays along with the team s homo phobic chatter Common chatter includes I ll take the Chateau Latour Spillie mimicked Duffy in his best aristocratic voice He snorted Dude you are so gay Duffy folded his hands on the table and shot Spillie a pointed look If youon t shut your trap right now I ll shove a wine bottle so far up your ass that we ll see who is really gay You think you re such a badass Spillie smirked completely unfazed I know I am Duffy slyly grinned Just like I know that you Kingston upon Hull in Old Picture Postcards d love nothing than to share a tent up on Brokeback Mountain with Mo Hey leave me out of your homoerotic fantasies Mo threw his hands up in protest I ll even autograph it for you with hugs and kisses Clint stopped laughing his face suddenly serious I really miss you he confessed It hasn t been the same Miss you too Clint setown his burger and wiped his hands Okay It s starting to get really gay here We need to man up this conversation pronto It should be noted that the boys never Fireside Politics: Radio and Political Culture in the United States, 1920-1940 do come out to their friends and teammates The book ends and weon t get to see any of the love and support for each another Dining As a Roman Emperor during the coming out phaseNow to get to Derek and Trevor s relationship Even though the two share a room while on the road they wasn t ANY sex until the last 5% of the book This might have made for some seriously fun sexual tension but it was merely awkward and rather uncomfortable to read about Derek even goes out one night and fucks a stranger in the back room of a gay club When he gets back he admits it to Trevor with aSo what and Trevor seems to not give any fucks During the final 5% of the book Derek gets his bell rung on the iceuring the playoffs and it causes Trevor to finally man up and admit how much he LOVES Derek He says it with absolutely no passion and it left me wondering Huh When id THIS happen I must have missed that chapter Of course we already know Derek is in love with Trevor because of his inner monologue At least we think so because as I mentioned above his mood swings are the thing of legends when it comes to TrevorThere was absolutely NOTHING romantic in this book There was one sex scene at the 95% mark that I actually skimmed because I was so isgusted with Trevor being a The Projection and Limitations of Imperial Powers, 1618-1850 douche nozzle for years and years and them suddenlyeclaring his undying love to Derek for which Derek immediately rolls. Came known as the Wonder Twins After winning the gold medal they slept together Trevor was gone the next morning and they haven’t spoken since Now they’re together again and the expectation is for the Wonder Twins to help Detroit win the Stanley Cup Much to Derek’s ismay he realizes he’s falling in love with Trevor all over aga.

ending A few years ago I would have this book The romance uota was low the awkward conversation uota was high Since the situation was awkward to begin with I felt that was fitting Most of the action took place on the ice In most mm books we get a French Writers and the Politics of Complicity: Crises of Democracy in the 1940s and 1990s detailed sex scene or three In this one we get veryetailed information about hockey games Right Menippean Satire Reconsidered: From Antiquity to the Eighteenth Century down to who took what shot from the point and who blocked it I would have tried to skim that in the past and it would have been impossible Somehow in the last few years I ve turned into a fan and as a fan I was very content to read hockey since Ion t have any to watch at the moment The Warfare Welfare: The Not-So-Hidden Costs of America's Permanent War Economy downside was the homophobia Iidn t like it But that was kind of the point and unfortunately realistic The ending was a big fail for me It was so rushed I Landfall along the Chesapeake: In the Wake of Captain John Smith don t like epilogues and Ion t need the hearts and flowers but I Venice's Hidden Enemies: Italian Heretics in a Renaissance City don t like endings that feel like falling off a cliff either That said it appears that this was Dunn s first published book I can t wait to read Good on the sport action poor on the romanceI love reading books with a sports theme and this one was great in the parts that related to the hockey games and training but the romance part of this book let itownDerek and Trevor meet 5 years ago playing on the same team at the Junior Championship They became inseparable and their closeness transferred to the ice giving them the moniker of the wonder twins Neither of them knew if the other one was gay or not and after a night out celebrating their championship win they got together Trevor Saints And Strangers disappearsuring the night and they have not seen each other since 5 years later they are both playing for The Letter (Magic Mountain, different NHL teams Derek is transferred to Trevor s team in the hopes that they can reproduce the magic of the wonder twins The story starts with Derek s transfer and Trevor s cold reception to Derek and progresses through them trying to navigate through past hurts It takes along time for the guys to finally get togetherMy problems with this one came from the two MCs Derek and Trevor Both characters seem like they have bipolar as the moods changed rapidly throughout the book One minute they have a slight friendship then back to arguing or not talking to each other I reallyidn t feel any connection between them other than the fist love aspect I can t understand with the way Trevor treated Derek he kept trying to be friendly with him Trevor s about face came out of nowhereI also had a problem with Derek and this part is going to be hard to articulate Derek spent a lot of the book pushing Trevor to admit he was gay Now in a lot of other books in this genre where the characters were hooking up continually and one character was refusing to admit he was gay I would be totally on Derek s side wanting Trevor to admit it But in this book there was no hooking up They got together for one night 5DISAPPOINTING ENDING A FEW YEARS AGO I WOULD HAVE
