Book Synopsis:

To the world they are rivals, but to each other they are everything.

Ten years.

That’s how long Shane Hollander and Ilya Rozanov have been seeing each other. How long they’ve been keeping their relationship a secret. From friends, from family…from the league. If Shane wants to stay at the top of his game, what he and Ilya share has to remain secret. He loves Ilya, but what if going public ruins everything?

Ilya is sick of secrets. Shane has gotten so good at hiding his feelings, sometimes Ilya questions if they even exist. The closeness, the intimacy, even the risk that would come with being open about their relationship…Ilya wants it all.

It’s time for them to decide what’s most important—hockey or love.

It’s time to make a call.

My Review:

I absolutely loved Shane and Ilya in Heated Rivalry, and the chemistry was still there in The Long Game. While Heated Rivalry was a great start to capturing the awareness of their feelings towards one another, The Long Game was a true insight into their actual relationship. A look at their core.

This storyline was beautifully written in a way for us as readers to witness the continuation of their romance. It was the more we didn’t know we needed. This felt like a whole new beginning, one I’d love to read more of.
