    I loved Augie and Sal's story!

    Open Net is book 2 in the Cayuga Cougars series. We met August (Augie) Miles in the first book, Snap Shot. As the starting goalie, Augie is one of the newer members of the Cougars hockey team. He's only recently admitted to himself that he's gay and that he wants a real relationship like the ones that a few of his teammates enjoy. This story is told in first person POV, from Augie's perspective. Augie meets Salvatore (Sal) Castenada at a party and they hit it off but Sal guesses correctly that Augie isn't out yet. There is a significant age difference between the two but they are drawn to each other. When Sal later tells Augie that he is HIV positive, and explains what that would mean for any relationship they might have, Augie asks for time to think about it. He then spends a lot of time researching and learning all he can about being HIV positive and having a relationship with someone who is. Augie gets a lot of flak from his best friend, and teammate, Mario McGarrity because of the age difference and the fact that Augie has so little experience as a gay man. But Augie has no intention of giving up Sal even after Mario goes a bit off the rails when he finds out about Sal's HIV status. I'm not good at writing analytical reviews about a story or the writing. I know what I like and don't like and I liked Open Net a lot and I loved Augie and Sal. My heart hurt for Augie because he wasn't ready to come out yet to his family which caused him some anxiety. Sal was so patient and good to Augie that I couldn't help but love him. There is a significant crisis in the story, but it wasn't a relationship crisis which was nice for a change. Most of the time I don't mind a relationship crisis in a book but it was refreshing for this to be something different even though it brought on the tears. I'm definitely learning a lot about hockey by reading this series, while at the same time enjoying a very sexy romance. An advanced copy of this book was provided to me but my review was voluntary and not influenced by the author. ***Reviewed for Xtreme-Delusions dot com***
