A young adult hockey romance filled with making amends, family, friends, and discovering the real person inside while juggling the crazy, upside-down world of high school.
Jonah Robinson has really messed up. He’s spent the last year hanging out with someone who wasn’t leading him in a good direction. Now that Felix has seen the light, perhaps it’s time for Jonah to do the same. Making amends is not going to be easy when he’s not exactly been the nicest guy at Chesterford. With the help of his family and a special friend at the school, Jonah is ready to try to make things right with those he wronged. The first person on that long redemption list is Tyler, the brightest player on the Coyotes, at least in Jonah’s eyes. He’s taken a thousand pictures of Tyler for the school paper, but he’s going to have to learn how to develop more than just negatives if he wants to grow close to Tyler.
Tyler Corrigan’s dad has left, and it’s just him and his mom now. Despite not being the biggest person on the ice, speed is Tyler’s superpower, and the team has his back during the worst of the bullying he’d had to endure. His friends make him feel safe when his real world is full of fear, but no one can protect his heart when an awkward and messed up Jonah is suddenly around every corner, wanting to make things right.
Sorry can be a difficult word to believe, but trusting your heart is everything.More info →
Their sport demands total devotion, but can falling in love come first?
In the hockey-obsessed school of Chesterford Academy, Shaun Stanton stands out as the star player and captain of the Chesterford Coyotes and his exceptional skills have already attracted the attention of NHL scouts. He lives and breathes hockey, but beneath the surface, there’s more to his story. Pressured by his father, who aims to turn Shaun into the star he never was, their relationship is a complex mix of guidance and intimidation. Worse, while hockey is Shaun’s sanctuary and a key part of who he is, he harbors a secret his dad can never find out: Shaun is gay, and he’s caught between the future career he’s destined for, and the truth he has to hide. There’s one bright light in his life, the vibrant figure skater who shares the early morning practice ice, a friend he worries about, but now something more–Kenji is everything Shaun wants and can’t have.
Kenji Kelly is a young man who walks two worlds simultaneously: his family is a beautiful mix of American and Asian cultures, he loves both figure skating and hockey, and he’s a proud and out pansexual teen. While it seems to the world around him that he has it all, deep down Kenji has a secret that’s slowly becoming harder to conceal. His life is the ice and his coach does not believe in failure. The one person who knows his hidden secret is Shaun, the captain of the Coyotes and a friend from years ago in youth hockey. Shaun’s gaze towards Kenji, once solely filled with concern, now seems to hold something deeper, unsettling Kenji but also igniting in him similar giddy, burgeoning feelings. As their feelings become stronger, the secrets both young men are carrying grow heavier and more distressing with each passing day.More info →
