Ice Angels (Bethesda Barracudas Hockey Book 4) Kindle Edition
Drew and Cleevs love hockey, but they love each other more. How can the men find a way to save what matters most?
Todd Cleever and Drew Simon are crazy about each other. They started dating three years ago when “Cleevs” was a rookie defenseman for the Chicago Ice. Drew, the team’s captain, was a few years older than Cleevs. Both men were deep in the closet, but it didn’t take long for them to fall in love.
Cleevs was traded to the Bethesda Barracudas a year later, causing a heartbreaking separation. Ever since, they’ve skated around the problem with occasional stolen nights together and brief vacations under the guise of “friends,” but two years of living apart have taken their toll.
As the holiday approaches, Drew and Cleevs decide things have to change. Still, with their careers and two professional hockey teams in the way, how can they score the game-winning goal and save everything they cherish most?
If you like fierce love, a smallish age gap, exciting hockey, and a steely determination to make things work—not to mention enough steam to fog up all your windows and a fantastic HEA—this is the book for you.

Drew and Todd are the main characters in Ice Angels. They are an established couple of three years, and they deeply love each other. However, Drew is deep in the closet. While Todd is out, his relationship is just as closeted as Drew is. On top of that, they live separate lives, except when they face each other on the ice.
I love the way Ryan Taylor and Joshua Harwood wrote this story. The love between Drew and Todd is so strong that it's almost tangible. If you've spent any time in the author duo's Facebook group, you've seen their real-life love in action. I genuinely believe their relationship is the real deal, and it shows through their stories.
It didn't take me long to get lost in this book and fall in love with Drew and Todd. They are exceptional men, teammates, friends, and boyfriends. I couldn't pick a favorite of the two, even if under force. They are both equally great characters. We met both of them briefly in previous books, but we never really knew anything about them. (Don't worry. If you haven't read the previous books, you won't be left confused or trying to catch up) That all changes in this book. They went from minor side characters to main characters and revealed everything we never knew we needed to know.
I found myself smiling many times throughout this book--with the broadest, ear-splitting grin once I finished. There were a few parts I even gasped with joy upon reading. Do you know those books that make your heart feel warm and full of fuzzies? Ice Angels is the epitome of that book. It has easily become one of my favorites. I think it just knocked a book off of the top three, and those have been there since mid-2020.
Do not let anything keep you from reading this book. The way they write the hockey scenes makes even a novice understand what's going on. They pull you into every single part of the book, whether you planned on skipping that part or not. I do not advise skipping anything in their books because you will miss something golden. I guarantee it. This book is a novella, but it is wonderfully written. Nothing is rushed, left out, or only skimmed over. This love story is complete and will leave you feeling like you just received one of the best hugs you have ever had.
You will want to read this book over and over again. I know I do!

the relationship between Drew and Cleevs that takes centre stage.
It is obvious from the start that these two have found their forever person and the book has plenty of steamy scenes. I always enjoy books where previous characters make appearances and Drew and Cleevs have a good support network of established friends bringing humour and banter into the story.
I like the way Ryan and Josh always include important issues in their books such as the injustices facing young gay athletes whilst also pointing out that hockey has improved and is trying to support gay players.
While I'm not a hockey fan I loved this book, in fact other than their first 2 books I think its been my favourite.
It was a lovley love story between an established couple who due to the nature of their careers felt they had to hide their relationship but basically didn't want to hide any more and they just wanted to be together.
Its the story of how they finally start to live freely while maintianing their careers.
These 2 authos write beautifully and passionately. Their books are, sweet, funny at times and totally engaging.
If you've not read anything from these guys I would highly recommed them
All in all, if you want a holliday based story that gives you those good feels and makes you want more, give Ice Angels a chance. I cant wait to read more of their work.
The mc's , Todd and Drew, are already together at the start of the story but need to define what they have together and want to have going further. We follow them along their journey to their hea as active out and proud NHL players. This was a fun quick read for me and I am looking forward to more books in their hockey universe.
Audiobook: Nick J. Russo is an excellent choice for the hockey related books. He differentiates between players and his pronounciation is real clear and through that he makes this book a joy to listen to. Through his way of speaking I notice all the little details that stood out when I read the book itself. 5*
