Publisher's Summary

Cohen: It turns out making out with my best friend in high school could be considered gay. Who knew? Apparently, everyone but me.

Now that it's been pointed out, I can't help reliving it in my head. Repeatedly. Good-bye Denial Town, hello Confusionville.

When my path leads me down the gay dating app route, I don't expect to meet anyone I like, but then I meet him. He can't be more opposite than me. He's smart, he hates hockey, and he identifies as demi - something I've never heard of. Yet I can't deny something's there.

Seth: All my life, I've felt broken. Sick of being asked if I could be gay by ex-girlfriends, friends, and even my parents, I join a gay dating app to prove a point.

I don't expect to find what's always been missing. A real connection. The problem is, I'm too scared to meet him in person. He's a hockey player, and I fear when he finds out my twin plays for the NHL, I'll be overshadowed by my overachieving brother. Again. Worse yet, what happens if we meet and that connection isn't the same?

When I tell him I'm not ready, he's disappointed but supportive. Fate, on the other hand, isn't as accepting.

Contains mature themes.

Makes me want to get interested in hockey

I love Eden's books that almost always have an element of hockey in them. She makes me want to go watch a game. I'm not familiar with Saxon James but I can see the slight difference in Eden's storyline pattern.

What put the icing on the cake was the awesome duo of Alexander Candese and Iggy Toma. I love Iggy's voice so much. These two work so well together. It seems kind of organic.

This was all in all a great story and an awesome listen.

Best of the series

I love the CU Hockey Series. This one is my absolute favorite of the bunch. I love the characters Seth and Cohen. Both discovering who they are and falling for one another without meeting each other first. I can't wait for more.

Adorable Coupling

Psychologically astute and just the right way to get acquainted and develop a solid foundation for sexual exploration. The boys voices were superbly spoken by the narrators. Loved the story and hope one like it will develop in my own life. Truly the ice hockey games were realistic and easy to imagine being either a player or someone in the audience.

So good!

I always love these straight to queer stories. You think they are going to be super cliché but it is so emotionally heartfelt and the writers have such a good description of how it is to come out not only as a Demi sexual every day individual but also as a bisexual athlete. I definitely plan on listening through this book again when I need my heart to get all warm and fuzzy! Not to mention any book that Alexander Cendese and Iggy Toma read together is just perfection. I have very few authors that I thoroughly enjoy listening to and solely pick books just because they are narrating it but these two take the cake! If you’re thinking about downloading this book trust me it’s worth the credit !!!

Had potential

The story had so much potential but it was ultimately disappointing. It was too preachy and towards the end employed the tired trope of a big misunderstanding to create tension. Also one of the main characters does something to interfere in the others’s life in an unacceptable way, which is ultimately glassed over. And the narration of the parents and coach was absurd. It was a caricature of old people.

So sweet

While not my favorite of the series, I still loved the couple and that fact that things happen at the same time through out these first few books. The narration was awesome.

Awesome Series continues w/ Story of Seth & Cohen

Awesome Series continues w/ Story of Seth & Cohen Seth has a girlfriend and Cohen is a player both on and off the ice, both straight.

After Seth's girlfriend, Emma, pretty harshly dumps him saying he's too needy and most likely gay, Seth considers his past relationships and based on his previous Google researches believes he may be demi, and to be sexually attracted to someone he needs to know them first. Seth decides to test his theory with Online Dating....

Cohen, frustrated with impersonal puck bunny hookups, seeing what his former teammate and gay friends Zach and Foster have going with a solid future and relationship together, and discovering two other teammates hooking up with each other; decides he needs to do something different and decides to try a gay hookup app Chat up....

Thank you, thank you, thank you Eden Finley and Saxon James for continuing the series with these heartwarming and always Hot and Heated stories of the "Mountain Lions" hockey players meeting their partners and coming out to their teammates, family and friends. The Narration of Seth and Cohen story by Alexander Cendese and Iggy Toma really brings it to life for listeners!

Really enjoyable

I really enjoyed this book and hearing the series develop. Richie was hilarious and the way the relationship developed between the pair was really sweet. I loved getting to hear more but LGBTQ+ identities that many people aren't aware of and I think it was written really well. it was also great to hear the previous couples from books 1&2 included in the story. can't wait to hear book 4.

A sweet and fun exploration of demisexuality!

A classic overthinker, Seth has always wondered why his relationships with women fail and given his younger brother Foster’s stellar hockey career and loving relationship with Seth’s best friend, Seth is a teeny bit jealous and questions what’s wrong with himself. When hockey player, Richie Cohen, realises he might be attracted to men as well as women, he starts an anonymous online chat relationship with ‘Einstein’ who is also trying to work out his sexuality. If only the two of them realised that they already knew each other! This incredibly slow burn romance explores asexuality and demisexuality with two sympathetic and fully fleshed-out leads. Richie was incredibly patient with Seth and their online exchanges were sweet and fun and well worth the wait. Audio narrators, Alexander Cendese perfectly channeled the lovably bluff & hearty, but quickly confused Richie, while Iggy Toma produced a wonderfully sensitive, uncertain Seth. A lovely opposites-attract story. My only beef was the amount of time spent on setting up Asher’s character for the next book.
