About this deal

They both had that enemies tone in their voice which helped build up the story in the audio so freaking well! oak was openly gay but quinn had thought he was straight his whole life but as soon as he realized he liked oakley, he was all in for him 100% and would take whatever he could get.

But hey, at least this means you’re guaranteed for some hot, spicy MM action in this book that involves sneaking around, secret hookups, library shenanigans, and just lots of heat in general! Iced out is a story about two team rivals who constantly but heads until they form an arrangement of some sort. They start off so aggressive towards each other and I loved the hate sex because I’m a whore for it but watching them fall in love with each other made me totally swoony as well. Other thing I didn’t disliked but I would preferred in another way and in lesser quantity, and these are the sexual scenes, there are too many from my pov, and too little plot development in comparison. The transition to rivals with benefits to something more was done smoothy too, it didn’t feel rushed.He had every right to be angry, but after all sides were exposed, he still stubbornly maintained that Oakley was still in the wrong. I will say I did feel a lack of a few things while reading that resulted in the rating, I wanted more from Oakley, I feel like I didn’t see his character grow as much as Quintons had. Clawing under my skin is his favorite pastime, only feeding the animosity between us as the years pass. But the writing and telling of their story was so cohesive and flowed so well that when it was over I couldn’t be sad because it felt like absolutely nothing had been left out.

Quinton and Oakley navigate their new sexual relationship and begin to develop romantic feelings for one another. For example, at one point they had a full five minute "I hate you" heated conversation (in full and articulate sentences, which is not how teenage guys talk) in the middle of a game.By completing your purchase, you agree to Audible's Conditions of Use and authorise Audible to charge your designated card or any other card on file. Quinn turned out to be clingier than Oakley and I definitely thought it was going to be the other way around. The pinch between his brows is kind of cute, and it takes a good amount of self-control—an amount I didn’t know I possessed—to keep my thumb from smoothing it back out. I’m starting to see this is going to be yet another enemies-to-lovers sports romance 95% of my friends seem to love while my heart remains unmoved.

Oakley is a Reed, yes he may get recognised by his last name, the same of his father and uncle who are ex-hockey players.

Hello Christian Fox - I‘ve missed your voice in my ears :) This book was fantastic when I read it - but even better in audio. They are hockey players in college who are forced to play alongside one another, which is proving quite difficult due to their intense animosity that originates from high school. So can really someone explain me how does someone get from this point to the one above, confessing in public and kissing in front of an stadium full of hockey fans and players? The first 10% has a very strong enemies thing going and they also both have plenty of reasons to legitimately not like each other that I was curious to see how this would all unfold but the enemies part flew out the window pretty quickly and I didn’t even care *this time around* because what we got was perfection.

The angst in this book isn't non-existent, but it's pretty low-key; at least, the bigger conflict is pretty quickly resolved. Somehow fate has them ending up at the same university and on the same hockey team, a sport which they both love no matter how much they "hate" each other that is the one thing they seem to have in common. I found it a little unbelievable that these two characters hated each other for years, and somehow survived on the same college team until they were seniors, without their issues coming to a head far earlier than when the story actually starts.There were many sex scenes, but I found their non-sexual moments together more powerful and romantic. And yes, I’m nitpicking, because once you start to notice a crack in the wall, you keep staring at it, even if the narrators did a really good job keeping me entertained. This is not the case here, and a big chunk of the plot has to do with their hockey season and them playing games.
