If you could sum up The Hockey Player's Heart in three words, what would they be?
This is a great story, it starts off with a brush of lips in a goodbye between two young men in high school. One was a cute geeky math tutor and the other a hockey jock. They didn’t start seeing each other in high school, Much later the pair meets up and the jock wants a relationship and the geek questions everything. They work hard and get a happy ending
What about Finn Sterling’s performance did you like?
Narrator jock voice was great the geek needed some work.

Where does The Hockey Player's Heart rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
At the top for sure. I loved everything about this book. The writing, the narration, the slow burning love story rooted in decades of friendship.
What other book might you compare The Hockey Player's Heart to and why?
Wade Kelly's Jocks series, the writing styles and angst are similar.
What does Finn Sterling bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
He gives the characters a voice, each their own definable voice, makes them more than just words on paper.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
Any additional comments?
This book was a breath of fresh air for me, the perfect mixture of love, life and angst. Sterling did such a great job bringing Caleb and Aaron to life and giving each of them their own distinct personalty in addition to the differing characteristics already in place from the written version.
Caleb is the hot, openly gay, confident hockey star while Aaron, who is successful in his own right, lacks some of the confidence due to a past boyfriend that didn't appreciate the beautiful, smart man he had. That is a huge part of the story when going back and forth from each man's POV. Aaron knows what he wants, he has since he was a teenager, but there's the constant niggle in the back of his mind.... am I good enough? I think my favorite aspect of this book, aside from the smoking hot chemistry, was the fact that the story was built on a foundation of friendship and love long before anything else. It really does give the story roots that just continue to grow throughout.
This is the first book that husbands, Jeff Adams and Will Knauss, co-wrote and I seriously hope it is not the last. I could feel each one of them in the story while listening. There was a push and pull between Caleb and Aaron that gave the story depth and kept me intrigued throughout, little bread crumbs dropped here and there that came together at the end and made me smile. I highly recommend this one, especially if you're a hopeless romantic, like myself.
