  • Sexy, funny emotional

    Eric is a forty-one-year-old NHL player. He admitted to Kyle he's bi and wants to explore, wants to go out. Kyle and Eric have some mutual friends and Kyle will help and introduce him to the gay scene and who knows maybe even find him a hook up. Kyle wants to find himself also a guy. Not with each other, nooo, Eric is looking for someone not too young thirty maybe. Poor Kyle he's only twenty-five. They decide to be friends. When Kyle offers himself as the one where Eric could sexually practice with they start friends with benefits. And Kyle will still lookout for a guy for Eric. Sounds great right? So not. They have the best time together and it will never be more, because hey, thirty-plus right! I loved this story, the pace was good, it was entertaining and with enough emotions. Quite lovable characters, with Kyle as a bright star. The time they spent together was nice to watch. It took them a long time to get where they wanted to be, at the end I wished some more resistance before giving in. Overall a funny, sexy, enjoyable narrative!

  • Entertaining

    The instant, I saw Rachel Reid wrote another book in the Games Changers World , I wanted to read it . Yes, without sounding too gushing Heated Rivalry , book 2 , is one of my top favorite Hockey story ever. Therefore, the bar is set incredibly high. Common Goal is a fine, solid and entertaining read. A strong and welcome continuation to this amazing series. Both heroes , Eric and Kyle are likeable and have many great qualities. Kyle won me over with his hilarious inner thoughts and wonderful quirky personality. As for Eric , his sense of honor and dependable nature made me fall for him. They make a good and sexy couple ; except for the - annoying to me - lack of communication. All their problems would have been resolved, if they talked it out. But it didn't happen till the very end. We only got - yes, I am greedy- a small amount of time with them in coupledom. I wish, we had more of those moments , instead of letting us know it happened , in the epilogue. It would be amiss , on my part , if I don't mention Ilya Rozanov and Shane Hollander making cameos appearances. And of course, Ilya being Ilya , Stole. Every. Single. Scene. he was in! HFS, I adore Ilya and his smirks. There I said it ! LOL Common Goal can be read as standalone . Yet, I recommend reading all other books too , as they're spectacular stories. I just reviewed Common Goal by Rachel Reid. #CommonGoal #NetGalley #CarinaPress

  • Non stereotypical sports hero😊

    🏒Ice at work & a newly-discovered taste for 🔥fire after hours 4-4.5🌟stars This was my first time reading a Rachel Reid MM sports romance and I was pretty impressed. Especially with the character she created in veteran goalie Eric. Eric just does not resemble the hockey player stereotype and that's why he was so appealing to me. Eric explores his long disguised attraction for men with Kyle, a much younger student/bartender who's had some disheartening experiences with older men but still gravitates to Eric. This story has frequent and detailed steamy scenes, including some experimenting with restraints. Despite the way the guys open up to each other sexually, they have real difficulty talking with each other about their true emotions which leads to rocky patches. In addition to Eric's insecurity about seeing a much younger man, Eric's facing the end of his career on the ice as his age and injuries are catching up to him despite his healthy lifestyle. I really found this part of the story touching. I thought the writing was good, the plot compelling and the romance sizzlin'🔥. I can see myself reading other books in the series, but this story is a standalone; no cliffhanger in sight. Thanks to Carina Press and NetGalley for providing an advance copy of the book; this is my voluntary and honest review.

  • Sweet Slow Burn M/M romance

    I received an ARC of this book to read through NetGalley. All opinions are my own. Common Goal by Rachel Reid is the fourth book in her hockey series Game Changers. It is a MM romance and can be read as a stand-alone, characters from the other books in the series appear, but there is no sense of having missed something. Goalie Eric Bennett is 41 years old and feeling that this will be his last season. His marriage ended a couple of years ago, and he’s re-thinking his sexuality because of his attraction to graduate student/ bartender Kyle Swift who’s close friends with the fiancé of a team member. He’s concerned that Kyle, at age 26, is much too young for him, but there is no one else who attracts him the way Kyle does. Kyle thinks Eric is everything he wants in a lover, but he’s been burned before and the mixed signals he’s getting from Eric have him on edge. This is a slow burn friends to lovers story, so slow burn that at one point I wanted to shout kiss him already but managed to contain myself. I enjoyed the story and do recommend reading it. Steam Level: Medium. Publishing Date: September 21, 2020. #CommonGoal #RachelReid #CarinaPress #HarlequinRomance #NetGalley #MMRomance #HockeyRomance #ContemporaryRomance #Bookstagram #Bookstagrammer

  • Very good biawakening, opposites attract romance

    I’ve enjoyed the Game Changers series, and while book two is still my favorite, Common Goal was a great addition to the series and definitely worth the read. Opposites attract is a perennial favorite trope of mine and I really liked how Kyle and Eric complimented and contrasted with each other in Common Goal. Kyle’s flirty, suggestive side was just enough to be entertaining and offer a bright counterpoint to Eric’s normally quiet, pensive approach. Even better, both characters were multi-layered and I enjoyed getting to see all their sides as the book progressed and they grew comfortable with one another. I also liked the approach to Eric’s bi-awakening and the way he (and Kyle) explored his sexual identity. The pace was measured, enough interest and chemistry between Eric and Kyle to hook me but slow enough to allow the emotions time to build as the story progressed. There was a bit of the dreaded lack of communication as the main source of conflict and tension between Kyle and Eric. Although the reasoning for both characters’ hesitation was noted and believable, it’s a pet peeve of mine that always dulls the shine of a romance for me. Happily, Kyle and Eric finally hashed it out and I did enjoy the resolution quite a bit. As with the other books in the series, Common Goal has great heat with good physical chemistry between the men. For those like me who want their sports romance to include the sport on page, Common Goal has a good amount of hockey in it, picking up on the quirky personalities of goalies and the comradery among teammates. Overall, I really liked that both Eric and Kyle were original and I thought they had a good chemistry. While I wished there had been more open communication between them over the course of the story, Common Goal is a good bi-awakening hockey romance with polished writing I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend. *eARC received via Netgalley. The publisher and author had no influence over this review*
