Senior year is here, and everything is on the line. Benoit’s time to shine in the crease is now, and he’s going to do everything he can to make sure those professional scouts take notice. He’s earned a great reputation for his skills in the net, and his laid-back demeanor is his key to maintaining his cool when things get heated in the goal crease. 

As the Eagles roar into a new season, Ben’s laser-sharp focus is shattered by his attraction to Ethan Girard, the team’s new defensive consultant. Trying his best to ignore the budding friendship that’s taking a hard, fast turn into something far more passionate, Ben is determined to keep his mind on the sport he loves and not let his feelings for the handsome older man creep into his performance. But love, like hockey, is wildly unpredictable, and soon Ben finds that he’s unable to distance himself from Ethan who is slowly and surely working himself into his heart.

Famed Boston defenseman, Ethan Girard, isn’t stupid. Celebrating his thirty-second birthday in the emergency room after breaking his leg, and with a warning that healing will be a long process, he knows he has to think about his future. He was drafted at eighteen, and he’s never known anything but hockey, but with no contract in place yet for the new season he considers that maybe it’s time for him to hang up his skates for good.

Volunteering to help out with the Owatonna Eagles fills his time, but from the moment he lays eyes on goalie Ben, he knows his world will never be the same again. Falling in lust is as easy as stealing his first kiss, but Ben refuses to engage. Has Ethan finally met his match?

When the lines between career and love blur, will Ethan and Ben find a way to create a future that will work for both of them?

My Rating - 5 Stars!

RJ Scott and VL Locey's Benoit, the third book in the Owatonna U Hockey series, is outstanding. An avid fan of this series, I can't imagine ever being disappointed by one of these books. I love the tone, and just find myself settling in for a comfy read every time. 

Riveting from the start, as Benoit's moving in with Ryker, Scott, and Haynes. It's his senior year, the pressure to succeed is high, and he's never been interested in love before. Until Ethan.

With an injury, Ethan's suddenly contemplating retiring. Upon volunteering to coach Benoit's team, he finds himself instantly attracted to the younger man. These are two men who are at different ends of their career, who have to deal with being closeted and coming out while an athlete. If that wasn't hard enough, Benoit also has to deal with racism and more.

I love Ethan immediately! Ethan's snark and sass with his brother is amazing, as is his whole family. I just adore their dynamics. Omg, the antics with Robbie are hysterical. And his mom had me in stitches.

And with all the charm of the previous books, we are treated to a lot of fun past characters and some new delightful supporting characters. And, of course, we get some Ten, who I absolutely love and adore!

I just love everything about Benoit and Ethan. They're a great couple, with great chemistry, and a deep love for one another. I adore their quirky personalities and the humor about their age gap.

Benoit's a beautiful story of following one's heart. It's a passionate tale of finding something important in your life.
