Him by Elle Kennedy & Sarina Bowen


They don’t play for the same team. Or do they?

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. 

Loved it! 
This was my first read by Sarina Bowen and second by Elle Kennedy.

Jamie and Wes were best friends and roommates at hockey camp. 
For years they indulged in a very close friendship consisting of skinny dipping, sneaking beer, playing pranks and making bets!
One day a bet goes too far, leaving one of the boys with much regret and eventually ending their friendship.

Jamie is a hot blonde from California. His family is fun, laid back and easy going.
Wes is tall dark and rugged. He comes from a more conservative and uptight family.
He's the jokster that will do anything for a laugh and he's been in love with his best friend Jamie for as long as he can remember.

"I'd wanted to touch him more than I'd wanted my next breath."

This is a sexy, friends to lovers story. It's so fun and flirty and the chemistry is off the charts hot!

"What are you waiting for, Ryan? Suck it already."

There are also very sweet moments not only between lovers, but between friends.

At times there was a little sadness as well.
Everyone struggles with acceptance. Even the most confident people, like Wes, have moments of doubt.
None the less, the overall feeling of this book is happy.
This story is as hilarious as it is hot. 

"Ryan Theodore Wesley! Put that knife down this instant!"
"I'm sorry, did you call me Ryan Theodore?"
She waves her hand as if the question is inconsequential. "I don't know your middle name so I had to make one up. Because, sweetie, you really needed to be middle-named for mangling those poor onions."

Quick and easy going read that I didn't want to put down!
