Jamie Canning has never been able to figure out how he lost his closest friend. Four years ago, his tattooed, wise-cracking, rule-breaking roommate cut him off without an explanation. So what if things got a little weird on the last night of hockey camp the summer they were eighteen? It was just a little drunken foolishness. Nobody died.
Ryan Wesley’s biggest regret is coaxing his very straight friend into a bet that pushed the boundaries of their relationship. Now, with their college teams set to face off at the national championship, he’ll finally get a chance to apologize. But all it takes is one look at his longtime crush, and the ache is stronger than ever.
Jamie has waited a long time for answers, but walks away with only more questions—can one night of sex ruin a friendship? If not, how about six more weeks of it? When Wesley turns up to coach alongside Jamie for one more hot summer at camp, Jamie has a few things to discover about his old friend…and a big one to learn about himself.
Warning: contains sexual situations, skinnydipping, shenanigans in an SUV and proof that coming out to your family on social media is a dicey proposition
Add Him to Goodreads
Simply stated, I could not put this book down. It captured my heart immediately, and kept me on pins and needles in all the right places. Steamy, tender, heart-breaking, life-affirming … these are all adjectives that apply to HIM, and there are at least a hundred more. It speaks to the fear and the pain of being a gay man in a world of ‘jocks’ – of the risks of exposure and the consequences of denying yourself the experience of loving and being loved. The story is beautifully written, well-paced, with unforgettable characters and a storyline that will keep you enraptured from beginning to end. 5 glorious stars.
