I did not expect perfection. This is delightful from first to last word.
This is one of the best lifelong friends-to-lovers stories I've ever read. The whole cast is beautifully written, and the more who join in, the better it gets. And! I cannot believe how much parenting wisdom's in here! Particularly the 'pay attention to each other, too' parts. But all the other parts, too. Including that very last scene. 🙂 So typical.
Highest recommendation. You don't have to have read the series or know anything about hockey. But you should probably have a passing acquaintance with babies and how much time they require, or at least trust me when I say Wasp didn't exaggerate. Like, at all.
I fell in love with Sergei from the first page. I also loved Alex with all his vulnerability, tense energy, and earnestness. Them together? Sublime. Sergei's giant heart is everything Alex needs. Alex is everything Sergei never knew he wanted. Their chemistry was beyond hot and their tenderness was moving. Aside from loving the MC's like crazy, Paul's moment was transcendent. To be so young and so wise. I loved what he had to say, it was absolutely perfect for the situation and the way he described Grace was simple, poignant. He was great in his own story, Country Boy, and his inclusion in Skater Boy really showed his growth and maturity and how much he belongs to the Thunder family.
