Two Man Advantage
Furious, he takes to the ice with equal amounts of skill and scathing sarcasm, which doesn’t win him any friends—except for good-natured alternate captain Daniel Arou. He won’t ...more
(view spoiler)[How did Dan react to Vic sleeping with Big Boobs? Or did Vic just not tell him? By the end of book, the boys were in a long distance relationship and on different teams, but where do they eventually wind up? Will they ever be in the same city again? Bo ...more
The blurb says "Victor Kalinski, all-star forward for the Boston Barracudas, is one of the biggest jerks in professional hockey." and that is totally true. Vic's uncensored mouth comes out with all kinds of crap, not j ...more
While there, Vic meets Dan, who is the alternate captain. Dan is an upbeat and positive guy, and ...more
4.5 stars from me. The only things I didn't like about this story were the length and the price....very expensive [from a UK perspective for a novella]. Victor Kalinski is a complete muppet... full of himself, snarky to boot and just cannot/will not keep his mouth shut, but when he's sent down from the NHL for fighting and other misdemeanours, he more than meets his match in Daniel Arou. There were snorts a plenty in this one, you just had to laugh at Victor sometimes, and coach Lambert was anot ...more

You know that when sometimes you read a book that has been out for ages and you ask yourself why the hell you waited so long to read it? Of course that means the reverse is possible too, but I’ve never had it happen until now. Two Man Advantage is the first book I was looking forward to reading for ages I now I wish I had never read. To say this book was disappointing is too mild a wor ...more
There are a ton of romance sub-genres where you can have an asshole, douche-bag, loner main character and shrug, it's not my thing, but it's fine. TEAM sports is not one of them. I read sports romances at least in part for the team! and friends! Professional athletes have spent their entire lives bouncing around from team to team learning how to get along in these sort of hyper-masculine groups of immediate, situational ...more

After being suspended Vic heads from Boston to Upstate New York, and his new temporary team. He moves from the major to the minor league. He is an angry man, and he takes his anger out on not only on the opposing team members, but on his own team members at times. Being suspended from his Hockey team just makes him even angrier.
When he arrives he is immediately attracted to Dan one of his new teamm ...more
If I met Vik in real life, I would probably hate him, but reading the story from his point of view, I love the guy. His commentaries, while mean, are hysterical. He is right up my sarcastic alley. Having had a neglected chil ...more
I have to say there were a lot of times I didn't particularly care for Victor even though it was his story. He had a terrible upbringing and has an ego much bigger than he should, but I still didn't like what a jerk he could be.
Meanwhile I absolutely 100% loved Arou. He was strong, stubborn and sexy as hell.
There was a glaring error when we learn a bit about Arou's past from his parents. It says he was drafted to the team that Vic had been kicked off and I kept waiting for more explanat ...more
I wasn't sure that I would EVER start to like Vic at the beginning. He truly set himself up as the biggest d-bag in the NHL, not that there weren't reasons for his tough exterior. But he was such a jerk that no one wanted to bother to get close to him...until Dan. Just the description of Dan's sunny smile had me smiling; not that he isn't a tough, skilled player. Just his optimism is infectious, even for the reader. They are polar opposites so the a ...more
I absolutely did not like Vic for probably 93% of the story. He's everything I try to avoid in the people I interact with. He's arrogant, pushy, mean spirited, among many other negative things. Yet for some reason he is still a draw for Dan.
Dan on the other hand was so easy t ...more
Dan is the alternative captain of the minor league team Vic goes to and sparks fly. From the start he saw through Vic’s bs to the man he was inside and he brought him to life.
But what happe ...more

This blurb for Two-Man Advantage by VL Locey intrigued me. I am on a bit of a hockey book kick recently. While I await the next in one of my favorite series, I am sating my desire with other Hockey books. Some have been hits. Some have been misses. Some are somewhere in between. Two-Man Advantage falls in that in-between range.
