I’ve recently discovered that one of my fave sports romance tropes is rookie + the veteran 🤤 & Cait Nary’s Season’s Change offers that plus great mental health rep, sunshine & the loner, & roommates/friends falling in love.
Olly & Benji’s journey to a love declaration isn’t easy for lots of reasons, including the fact that hockey veteran Olly isn’t publicly out—he hasn’t even told his family yet—& Benji isn’t much for introspection & is overall pretty slow in recognizing/understanding his feelings for Olly.
Beyond this, Olly has experienced what I would call severe anxiety & perhaps even depression over how people associated with his previous team treated him after someone saw him trying to hookup with another man.
Needless to say, this isn’t a light read. There’s quite a lot of angst. But it is a wonderful story about friendship turning to love, about supporting someone & encouraging them through moments of emotional turmoil.
The steam doesn’t hurt (understatement); neither do the two MCs, who are sweet, well-meaning, & refreshingly “flawed” (ie human). I’m really looking forward to seeing what Cait Nary puts out into the world next.
4.5 ⭐️. Release date: 02/01.
Give me that HEA, please.
