Can your favorite hockey players finish their first season together undefeated?
Five months in, NHL forward Ryan Wesley is having a record-breaking rookie season. He's living his dream of playing pro hockey and coming home every night to the man he loves - Jamie Canning, his longtime best friend turned boyfriend. There's just one problem: the most important relationship of his life is one he needs to keep hidden, or else face a media storm that will eclipse his success on the ice.
Jamie loves Wes. He really, truly does. But hiding sucks. It's not the life Jamie envisioned for himself, and the strain of keeping their secret is taking its toll. It doesn't help that his new job isn't going as smoothly as he'd hoped, but he knows he can power through it as long as he has Wes. At least apartment 10B is their retreat, where they can always be themselves.
Or can they? When Wes's nosiest teammate moves in upstairs, the threads of their carefully woven lie begin to unravel. With the outside world determined to take its best shot at them, can Wes and Jamie develop major-league relationship skills on the fly?
Warning: contains sexual situations, a vibrating chair, long-distance sexytimes, and proof that hockey players look hot in any shade of green.

Audible Addict!!! My Favorite books have change since joining Audible and my taste for erotic has enhanced! Follow me to the dark side. ;)
I loved this. I wish that people could really be understanding and respectful of each other's right to choose. I loved this story so much!!! These are great listens that can be enjoyed over and over again⭐️🌟⭐️🌟⭐️⭐️
Yes, I read this originally & enjoyed it - if not more listening to it again on audio
There is just something great about this series, I am not one for re-reads or re-listening, but this series is one of the few I love and go back to. Great narration, All the stars an more
Wow the first one amazing . this one is just breathtaking. I like how at the end they find bliss. in the midst of tragedy. all in all you rock keep them coming
Loved loved this story loved the narrators there voice fit perfectly and the story was perfect and for the first time I want the series to continue with a third character which is Blake wish I had a friend like him, but it wouldn't work cause he would probably try to sleep with me. When the book finished I had a wide smile on my face!!!!
I've been waiting for this book to come out in audio since it was published, and I'm kind of conflicted on how to rate it.
The story itself is great, full of emotion while still having a sense of humor, but the narrator for Wes seemed...bored? There were whole sections where he was narrating and there was little to no inflection, which is surprising as he had a wonderful performance on the audio for HIM. Jamie's narration was pretty in-line with the quality of the first book, so I only knocked off one star due to Wes.
This is a fabulous audiobook. The dual narrators are both awesome and very much bring the parts to life. The story is about how hard it is to live together and make a relationship work and there are so few stories about that. It's realistic, sweet, hot and satisfying. It will definitely be a repeat listen.
Avid listener while doing everything from chasing after my toddler to running errands. Fan of all Romance, PRN & fantasy, mystery thrillers.
Yes! Because it is amazing!
Him, obviously. I haven't found a book like it and I love it so hard!
Ah fever dreams? Redemption? Mosey neighbor? Green shirts? Hard to say, loved them all!
Ah I couldn't choose the are all fantastic. You just wish they were real because they are so awesome!
This story Him & Us are the two best m/m books I have ever read/ listened to. They are real, and probably provide more insight and understanding than they were intended when written. Brilliantly performed and so absolutely worthy of any accolades or awards.
Addicted to any type of Romance/Erotica audio books.
I wish I could give this book 10 STARS!
I've been waiting for this book to be released on Audio because after listening to HIM I just couldn't imaging this story without the wonderful narration! I'm so glad I waited. This book was beautiful! There is nothing better than finishing a book feeling completely fulfilled and having a very happy heart. I honestly didn't think this book could be as good as book 1 because how could it compare to perfect... I WAS WRONG, it was everything HIM was and maybe even more.
The beauty of this story is the love shared between these two people. Wes and Jamie have the kind of relationship I love to read about. It is so real and normal and honest. They have their ups and downs and they don't always deal with them in the best way but that is what makes there story feel so real to me. No matter what life throws at them, they find their way through it because they just can't imagine life without each other. In this book they have a few obstetrical to overcome that I think most gay couples must face but they deal with these situation by being realistic about what will help and what won't. I think that is a huge part of what I love the most about this story. They know that there will always be "those" kind of people and instead of giving them the satisfaction of feeling like their opinion matters, they both have the attitude that you can't change people and the only thing that matters are the people in their lives.
I love the writing in this book, I love the narration of the audiobook. I loved how HOT this book is and I loved that these authors have written such an amazing characters. Characters that feel like friends and now that I finished I'm wondering what they are doing now. I really hope there will be more of Jamie & Wes to come.
The narration choice for this story couldn't have been better. These guys are PERFECT for Jamie and Wes. And if you read this story I'm sure its awesome but really the narration makes this 10 star book a 11 star audiobook.
This is a MUST LISTEN, whether you love M/M or you have never listened to M/M, This story will change your listening preference and leave you wanting more just like it and sadly so far nothing even comes close (for me anyways). I know this is a review of nothing but I loved this and I loved that but honestly this book just left me feeling happy so I can't help but to say it over and over.
Does it make you feel better to no vote all my reviews? Sad. If it makes you happy have at it then. Hope it brings you a little joy.
I looooovvvvveeeed these 2 books so much! What a great way to spend a Sunday but with these two gentlemen.
I am in Jamie and Wes love. I can’t choose don’t make me.
I was emotional invested in these characters that I even shed a few tears.
Jamie and Wes are navigating what a relationship means when you have to keep things on the down low for a while. And how hurt feeling and insecurities come to light. But it’s what you do with all that that really makes a relationship.
I loved the way these two fella’s love each other. They are so in love it makes your heart happy. Even struggling with new things that pop up it’s their love for one another that shines through with this book. I loved it…did I say that already? Well it needed to be said again.
I want more, more, more books like this. MM is wonderful all on its own I am finding that out. :D
Fantastic narration as well I loved both narrators they brought this book to life in my ears.
*You don't have to like my review but its 100% my opinion, and I am allowed to have it.*
How could I not recommend this book to a friend? Although, it is a given that you have to read both books -- "Him" and "Us."
I liked the fact that this was not just a man meets man, they fall in love and they live happily ever-after. Reading (or rather listening to) how their actual feelings about same was a real treat. I loved that the characters had depth and emotion rather than just hot monkey sex.
I have not had the pleasure of listening to either one of these incredible narrators before, but I have to tell you I am a dedicated fan now. They gave an incredible dimension to these books that I believe would not have otherwise been there. Hats off to these guys for an awesome performance.
I think "Us" is a spoiler alert. However, it is the reason I picked these two incredible books (Him and Us). If I have to come up with another name I would chose "Now."
I am a fan for life of these two authors! I listened to these two books twice, just to capture every nuance of these characters. I love these books! I really liked how in depth the characters were portrayed.
"Could've been better....."
Think I'll leave my review at 4 stars. Yes, it was lovely to listen to Jacob and Teddy again, reprising their roles as Wes and Jamie BUT I don't know, they just seemed to give off a bored vibe sometimes, and guys....can I please just stress that a French Canadian guy whose name is Gilles is not pronounced Giles or Gills. Gilles is really quite simple to say, honestly. And yes, I hold my hands up and admit to copious tears during the latter part of the story...just goes to show you what a big sap I am!!
I adore this book. Wes and Jamie are perfect together but their journey is a hard one. I love how the narrator's make each character their own. I love how the battle to come out for both men comes across as hard and freeing eventually. Huge well done to all involved.
