Note: An advance reader copy (ARC) was provided by the author via Neon Rainbow ARC Reviews.
The last Shore cousin has fallen, and who would have thought it would be a hockey player who would give him his happily-ever-after? Well, I did. After all, the Vancouver Orcas is an M/M hockey romance series, and twenty-nine-year-old Dorian Shore worked as the social media coordinator for both Vancouver's NHL and AHL teams, albeit the latter is supposed to only be a temporary gig, and he was surrounded by all things hockey on the regular. When twenty-eight-year-old Jamie Jamieson is traded from Charlotte to Vancouver, it's Dorian's place that wins out as his interim residence. The move was something that Jamie needed, especially given the aftermath of his broken engagement to his ex-fiancé led to some major hostility from some of his teammates, led by their captain who just happened to be his ex's older brother. So, Jamie knows better than to become involved with someone tied to his new team; but he hadn't quite expected his roommate, who was his coach's cousin to boot, to be as darn tempting and irresistible as Dorian was.
There are always these bittersweet feelings when a series that you've enjoyed comes to an end, but Amy Aislin certainly made sure that she was closing out her Vancouver Orcas trilogy on a high. Dorian was a constant presence throughout the series, so he definitely piqued my curiosity, making me wonder what his back story was and who he would end up being paired with. I think that Jamie was the perfect counterbalance to Dorian, and the fact that he had quite a history coming into the team and his relationship with Dorian made him even more interesting. I liked that Aislin always makes a point of having supporting characters who make the series as a whole feel well-rounded. I also appreciated how the author handled Jamie's relationship with his ex, Scott, and how everything was resolved for everyone concerned. From start to finish, Game On proved to be a really awesome read, and it brought the Vancouver Orcas trilogy full circle. 4.5 stars.
