Harrisburg Railers Series
Layton wants success, Adler wants family, how can love make both these things possible?
Layton Foxx works hard for what he has. The condo, the career, the chance to make his mark, is all down to the sacrifices he has made. With tragedy in his past, he doesn't want or need love. Then he meets Adler Lockhart, the extroverted, sexy winger for the Harrisburg Railers and abruptly he can't avoid love even if he wanted to.
Adler Lockhart has had everything handed to him his whole life. Cars, villas, cash, college tuition at the finest Ivy League schools. The only things he doesn't have are parents who care or the love of a good man. Then Layton walks into his privileged life and shows him what real love can be like.
Okay, I’ve got say…Adler was a trip. His thought pattern and the way his mind would race from one thing to the next made him seem younger than he was, and most of the time it came across as adorable, though when his thoughts reaffirmed his separate upbringing from his parents it increased my sympathy for him quite a bit. His lack of a brain-to-mouth filter made for some great lines, some of which had me laughing out loud. Adler edged out Layton by just a tiny bit for my favorite in this story.
Layton, with the darkness he experienced in his past, was one that I wanted to give a giant, never-ending hug and let him know he was safe. I loved that Adler was able to understand the subtle cues Layton gave to show his uneasiness in certain situations, and that Adler would immediately adapt to make Layton more comfortable. It was a classic show of how the two of them complemented each other.
We get to see plenty of Tennant and Jared from book one of the series as parts of their story continued to play out, and also the other team members like Stan (Stan is just AWESOME) who were introduced in Changing Lines. There’s also some establishment of what’s to come as the series progresses, which for me was a tease that has me really wanting the next book ASAP.
First Season was a great 4.5-star read for me, and I do highly recommend it (along with the first book) to M/M romance fans, and if you love hockey romance…even better! While you could probably read it as a standalone, I would strongly recommend reading Changing Lines first—it will definitely increase your enjoyment of First Season to get Tennant and Jared’s backstory. This book is for readers 18+ for adult language and sexual content, as well as references to an event in Layton’s past that may be disturbing for some readers.
