When Trey dreamed of one day playing professional hockey, he always imagined it would be for one of the top ranking NHL teams. He never fathomed he’d end up on a last place, farm team and struggling to live from one paycheck to the next. Instead of limousines, endorsement deals and accolades, he’s stuck with a rundown rink, jeering ex-fans and a crappy second-hand truck th ...more

The first book Offside Pass is one of the most heartfelt of Stephani Hecht's stories; so I definitely excited with this one, since it's Trey's story (and he has suffered such hard life, I cannot help for wanting him to have his HEA)

Unfortunately, this story suffers from its length. It is tad too short for building the kind of relationship I want to see from Trey and Wade. It has a very good basis for conflict, since Wade is a cop, and it's complicated because of Trey's past. However, th

Barely Meh. Points deducted for stupid editing errors (facilities/faculties, suite/suit, owe/own...just to name a few) and poor characterization. I really couldn't give a rat's ass about either of the MCs by the end of the book and that's just sad.

(And yet another example of what I will make myself read in order to complete a challenge; this time it was for Whips & Kisses - I needed a Hockey book and I'm trying to avoid re-reads; thank heavens it also at least counted for Spellapalo

Trey Canton has experienced more than most men his age: abuse, death, and the loss of an up-and-coming hockey career. After word got out that Trey was gay, he lost the chance to play for a professional hockey team. It also cost him what bit of normalcy he had in his life at the hands of an abusive father.

Trey and his older twin brothers, Chad and Devon, play for the same rundown hockey farm team, the Hawks. Chad and Devon are the kind of brothers any person would love to have. They sacrificed t

Younger brother/goalie Trey is "blackmailed" by the reporter whose keeping his secret into helping her sister's young son whose the worst goalie ever. Trey's not thrilled, but he finds meeting the kid's uncle isn't bad. Except for one thing, Wade is a cop, and everyone continues to tell Trey how important it is to keep their secret about his father's death, however he can't stay away. Wade is the first guy who doesn't treat him like a convenient or celebrity fuck. Then their older drug addict br ...more

This was a great second part to the Blue Line Hockey Series. Trey, the youngest of the brothers has a lot of insecurity issues but Wade, an officer on the Battle Creek police force, has a strong personality and is exactly what Trey needs. Trey's been through a lot and doesn't feel like he will ever have the chance for a real relationship, which is what Wade wants to give him. But because of his past, and his family secret, and who Wade is, his brothers want him to end things with Wade. After get ...more

This was another re-read for me and once again it did not live up to my original memory. I had planned on re-reading the entire Blue Line Hockey series, but have now decided to let my original memory of the series rest. It's just better that way. :)

I did like this better than the first one, most likely because one of the MCs was a police officer. So, again, I can recommend this to M/M romance fans of hockey, but just plain 'ol M/M romance fans, there is way too much out there far better than thi

This is the second book in the series. In the first book we saw Devon get his happy ending. This time the focus is on Trey.

Trey is one of the Canton brothers. They have experienced a very hard upbringing and family tragedy which has reflected in their fall from grace in the hockey world. Trey's brothers, particularly Devon, are paranoid that family secrets may be revealed and are adamant that this means Trey can't date Wade, a policeman and the brother of a friend.

Once again, a nice story with

I'm happy to see Trey's story, I liked him in the first book!
Good and intense read, I liked the dynamic between Trey and Wade, Trey with kids was so cute too; and wow, I didn't think I could've been pissed at Davon, given how much I liked him in the previous book, but well - for all the 2 minutes and several paragraphs I really wanted to slug him! xD Glad he improved fast, though )))

The story is somewhat shallow, but it is a novella so it's a little more excusable. The biggest problems I had with this book were 1- the editing was atrocious and 2- the conflict wasn't very believable. The first thing the author has little control over, but the second... Unfortunately, I can't recommend this book.

Good m/m romance about another of the battling hockey brothers of Battle Creek. He doesn't want to date a cop because of a dark family secret or two, but he just can't help himself. I wanted this to be a bit longer, because an awful lot of things were included for a story of this length.

It's been so long since I read the first book in this series that it took me a while to get back in to it. I enjoyed the storyline but it did seem that everything happened very quickly.

Der Eishockey-Goolie Trey wurde wie seine Brüder Brock, Chad und Devon von ihrem Vater schon als Kind zu Höchstleistungen gedrillt. Ausser Sport gab es nichts im Leben der Familie Canton. Doch trotz aller Begeisterung für den Sport und der Begabung – Trey war und ist nicht perfekt. Und sein unfreiwilliges Outing hat nicht nur sein Leben, sondern auch das seiner Brüder verändert und die Familie in große Schwierigkeiten gebracht. Jahre später sind die Eltern gestorben, Brock im Drogensumpf verlore ...more

I enjoy the Canton brother stories, probably because the are centered around my favorite sport.

The world is built well, the relationships are well defined. The roles of each brother are pretty clear, until the perfect man for the youngest Canton steps into the picture. For the first time in his life, Trey is defying his older brothers wishes and enjoying his time with policeman Wade. Their relationship builds into a strong bond when Wade sets out to prove to Trey that Trey is more than an easy l

I have mixed feelings about this book. While I really liked both characters, I didn't believe the love story between them. Maybe it's because I didn't get to know Wade very well... Anyhow, this is a must read if you liked Trey in the first book. I rooted for him & completely fell in love with him after reading Cherrypicker. I chuckled at his sense of humor and had a major crush on him by the end of the series.

3.5.  Another Canton 'bad' brother, Trey, gets his chance to put his demons to rest. Again, a fast paced, enjoyable short story, though a bit longer than Devon's, that draws you into the tale, though I did find Trey a bit 'soft' for how I imagine an ice hockey player to be (I only ever 'see' them in novels and the winter olympics every 4 years, so really know nothing). Need to know about Brock though.

This was a cute story. Nothing crazy dramatic or angsty or heartbreaking, just a sweet kinda insta-love story. This one was about Trey, one of the Nolan brothers that we met in #1. These stories aren't really long or developed enough to have a real impact but they are quick, fun reads for times when a little fluff is in order.

Cute, sweet story, nothing deep and a bit short and fast paced, but it’s set in a nice world. Like the first book in this series it gives a peek into the hockey world and I liked seeing Trey’s brothers and teammates again. Trey and Wade are a cute and hot couple and I enjoyed their chemistry. I love me some sports heroes, especially when they hook up with a cop. :) 3.5 stars

I liked this better than the first book of the series. Wade was such a great complement to Trey and I really enjoyed their chemistry. Their relationship moved fast like Devon and Saul's did but I felt this story had more meat to it for believability. I really enjoyed it.

Great story but poor editing

I really enjoy Stephani Hecht's writing, I just wish her books were edited better. There is no excuse for a professional writer misusing your and you're.

A little more depth than the first.
Still rushed to tell the story of two people who have no back story.
Building on the foundation of the first book helps.
