Since I enjoyed both authors’ previous works, and a lot of my friends loved Him, I picked it up. I haven’t read a lot of mm-romance (The Understatement of the Year is the only title that comes to mind), so I guess I’m not an expert, but I enjoyed Him a lot.
This book is about Jamie Canning and Ryan Wesley, childhood friends and hockey players. We meet them on the day before the hockey match, where their teams face each other. At first we know just that they are not friends anymore, actually they haven’t seen each other for the last several years. And I loved these steamy flashbacks which gradually reveal what happened between them.
While Ryan is openly gay, Jamie is supposedly straight. As you probably already guessed he is not. But Him is not a book about a guy, struggling with his sexuality. Jamie quickly and rather easily comes in terms with his sexuality. And then sexy times began.
I think this book should be labeled as erotica. There were a lot of scorching hot scenes in this book. If I’m not mistaken Sarina Bowen wrote one POV and Elle Kennedy wrote another. And I think the book gained from this. Jamie and Ryan are very different. The authors did a great job writing two absolutely different POVs. You know how sometimes you read a book with several POVs, but each of them sounds the same. It’s not the case here.
All in all I enjoyed this collaboration from Sarina Bowen and Elle Kennedy and recommend Him to those who are looking for a light, sexy mm-romance.
