    This series is a joy to read. Following a team of college hockey players, there a big emphasize of friendship and family and I'm glad to see Benoit living together with Ryker, Scott and Haynes.

    This series is a joy to read. Following a team of college hockey players, there a big emphasize of friendship and family and I'm glad to see Benoit living together with Ryker, Scott and Haynes.

    Benoit is goalie and as usual goalies are weird and the author manage to give him a different kind of weirdness compare to our legendary Stan. Ben is super dedicated on his studies and hockey for his final year in Owatonna. His family depend on him to be pick up by a professional team. There is so much pressure that he put on himself and he had no time for love.

    The appearance of Ethan Girard, a retired player recuperating from a broken leg prove to be too much a temptation for Ben. Can I just say that I'm jealous of Ethan's new life? He's retired at 32 with so much money and not sure what should he do next. I'm green with envy. I find his interest in Ben super adorable. He played it cool and yet Ben was hooked, line and sinker. Ethan is just so laidback and he adores Ben.

    There was an ongoing joke about their 10 years age gap, which I find it absolutely endearing. The addition of Ryker, the housemates, a potential stalker and their team fighting for the championship keep the plot moving at a quick pace. This is the end of Owatonna U series, but with the teaser we got for the next spin off series, I will be anxiously awaiting the next release.

    In this installment, we have two guys at different stages in their hockey careers. Benoit is an up and coming college goalie with a promising career ahead of him. He has one goal – make it to the NHL to secure his future and financial security to be able to help his family, including his ailing father. Ethan is taking a break from his NHL career to recuperate from an injury and is contemplating his retirement. While home in Owatonna, he takes on a volunteer job coaching/mentoring Benoit’s team.

    In this installment, we have two guys at different stages in their hockey careers. Benoit is an up and coming college goalie with a promising career ahead of him. He has one goal – make it to the NHL to secure his future and financial security to be able to help his family, including his ailing father. Ethan is taking a break from his NHL career to recuperate from an injury and is contemplating his retirement. While home in Owatonna, he takes on a volunteer job coaching/mentoring Benoit’s team.

    I love how the guys are all connected in this series. Benoit is a roommate of Scott and Ryker (the previous two books); and Ethan was a teammate of Tennant’s older brother (Tennant and Jared Madsen are from the Harrisburg Railers and are Ryker’s dads). The connections all feel plausible and natural, as opposed to made up to fit the story.

    Benoit and Ethan are instantly attracted to one another, but there are a few hurdles for them to face before they are both on the same page, mostly from Benoit’s side. He is already dealing with the stress of school and staying focused on his game and doesn’t want to add to the list of things already lined up against him – he is a black gay/bisexual Canadian in a predominantly white/straight sport. There is also the age gap and the fact that Ethan is coaching his team, although he is only a volunteer. But, thankfully, most of these things don’t stand in the way for too long, and Ethan ends up adding the extra support Benoit didn’t’ know he needed. One thing I loved was seeing Ethan find happiness at the next stage in his life. He was truly happy watching Benoit succeed, and given his own experience, his understanding in what it takes for that to happen.

    There is the added stress of someone stalking Benoit, which I felt the story could have actually done without or that it could have been a bit more believable. Nonetheless, it brought the guys even closer and helped solidify their relationship. I wasn’t wowed by this pairing for some reason, but there was enough interaction with the other guys to make it an enjoyable read overall. It showed the others and how they are dealing with their various issues, such as Scott and how he is making out since he took charge of his own life outside of hockey. It also nicely sets up the spinoff series, which I am really excited about. Ryker is about to head to the Raptors, the team that picked him up in the draft and the one with the worst reputation in the league. It also happens to have the guy who almost ended Tennant’s career, and Ryker is having some major anxiety about fitting in and dealing with all of that. I have been hooked on the original series from book one, totally enjoyed this one as well, and can’t wait to see how it all plays out in the upcoming Raptors series!

    Another gorgeous romance in this college ice hockey series from RJ and Vicki.

    I loved the relationship between Benoit and Ethan, the ten year gap was perfect, a study in contrasts between a player at the start of his career and one whose journey had ended.

    Another gorgeous romance in this college ice hockey series from RJ and Vicki.

    I loved the relationship between Benoit and Ethan, the ten year gap was perfect, a study in contrasts between a player at the start of his career and one whose journey had ended.

    It might have been a bit insta lovey, but I didn't care as I was utterly committed to them as a pair! Sexy, funny, good supporting cast and a glimpse into the happy ever after future for them just worked.

    3.5 - 4 stars Ethan’s career as thirty-two years old hockey player is over after breaking his leg. He settled himself in the town Owatonna and volunteer as coach at the hockey club. When he meets the beautiful dedicated Benoit, he is head over heels. Only, Benoit constantly avoids him. Until he can’t anymore. And yeah Benoit is distracted but oh so content. He doesn’t want to acknowledge the threatening that approaches him.

He doesn’t want to acknowledge the threatening that approaches him.

    A nicely written captivating story. We meet family, friends, enemies, discrimination, homophobia and a lot of dedication. The instant love between Benoit and Ethan was sweet. Even instant love isn't my favorite they were so sweet together. The sport side in this story was captivating and made it an enjoyable read.

    Benoit is the third in the Owatonna U series, following Ryker and Scott. You don’t have to read the series in order, but doing so will provide some context for this book and give you a better backstory. So I think it’s probably worth it to start at the beginning of the series.

    One of the things I really liked about Benoit is we get a look at racism in hockey. It’s a predominately white sport and while racism isn’t the center of the book, the authors do acknowledge

    One of the things I really liked about Benoit is we get a look at racism in hockey. It’s a predominately white sport and while racism isn’t the center of the book, the authors do acknowledge it and the affect it has on players and fans. This added an aspect of realism to the story and one that I think added to the context, especially since it’s an issue that often gets ignored.
