Drafted to play for the Jacksonville Sea Storm, an NHL affiliate, 20-year-old Lane Courtnall's future looks bright, apart from the awkwardness he feels as a gay man playing on a minor league hockey team. He's put his foot in his mouth a few times and alienated his teammates. Then, during a rivalry game, Lane throws off his gloves against Jared Shore, enforcer for the Savannah Renegades. It's a strange way to begin a relationship.
Jared's been playing minor league hockey for most of his career. He's bisexual and doesn't care if anyone knows. But he's determined to avoid another love affair after the last one left him devastated. Out of nowhere a one-nighter with rookie Lane Courtnall gives him second thoughts. Lane reminds Jared why he loves the game and why love might be worth the risk. In turn, Jared hopes to show Lane how to be comfortable with himself on and off the ice. But they're at different points in their careers, and both men will have to decide what they value most.

Great start of a great series
While I liked the 3rd part (Power Play) even more, I would say that this story by Avon Gale is simply great. I also liked how Lane and Jared were voiced by Scott R. Smith.
I really liked the scene when Lane realized that they had been giving each other 'magic gifts'.
He really made a good job giving Lane and Jared very distinctive voices.
Hockey, heartache and humor.
I think you need to be interested in hockey (at least a bit) to enjoy this book.
