Avon Gale - Empty Net, A Scoring Chances Novel
Laurent St. Savoy grew up the only son of a legendary NHL goalie in a household rife with abuse, constantly treated like a disappointment on and off the ice. When a desperate attempt to escape his father’s tyranny sends him to the Spitfires, the last thing Laurent wants is to make friends. But there’s something about Isaac Drake that he can’t resist, and Laurent has an opportunity to explore his sexuality for the first time, but he’s cracking under end-of-the season pressures. When facing the playoffs and a rivalry turned personal vendetta, Isaac’s not sure he’s enough to hold Laurent—or their relationship—together.
Sighs... I've been waiting so long (years, it felt like... years, i tell ya...) and I wasn't disappointed. This book seemed to have more of a NA feel to it, and I loved every freaking word. Poor Saint... sniffs... Loved seeing the previous characters brought into the story as well. Highly recommended (the whole series is).
