Please don't let this end!!!

I very rarely give 5 stars across the board, but this absolutely deserves it! The (hopefully not!) conclusion to the incredibly touching, beautiful, awe inspiring Wes and Jamie story!!
This is a wonderful extra, listening to how they are living their lives married is so fantastic!
The narration was incredible, absolutely giving life to the characters.
Incredible incredible book! I finished all three, Him, Us and Epic over two days because i simply couldn't put it down.
Soooooo worth the credits!!

Always good!

Great ice hockey short in the HIM series.
Jamie is worried about a coaching promotion while Wes’s hockey team play a surprise game and Blake performs his usual blocking manoeuvre. Fun and light while continuing to explore the give and take of a long-term relationship.

Fantastic audio for Wesmie Fans.

The audio for Epic may have only been just over an hour, but it was a FANTASTIC hour to listen to. I love these 2 narrators, so to have them performing more Wesmie together was pretty awesome. Loved the novella when it was released in the anthology, thrilled it got the audio release as well.

✫✫ 5 Stars for Wesmie ✫✫

What a wonderful visit with Wes & Jamie. This was like eating cake for breakfast while visiting old friends. I just love all of these characters so much and the happy feeling their stories leave me feeling. I would happily listen to anything these Author want to give us involving these men. This very short story was missing all the sex but it was still very sexy, hot and had the most important thing, the love.

Teddy & Jacob will always be Wesmie to me!!

More #Wesmie!

More #Wesmie! Learning that Sarina & Elle were releasing more about my favorite hockey players/swoony couple had me in paroxysms of sheer joy. Never mind that it's a novella (the paperback is 78 pages and audio version is barely over one hour). I'll take what I can get.

It was so easy to slide right back into the perfection that is Jamie and Wes. Life is good for the twosome. Wes is killing it with the Toronto team and Jamie continues to love his coaching position. But then Jamie is up for a promotion at the same time that Ottawa is offering him a goalie spot on their team. Career crisis!

I adore these guys and how supportive they are of each other. Their commitment, their banter... it all goes right to my heart. And major bonus: plenty of comedic relief courtesy of Blake Riley. Epic was a total gift and I listened to the whole thing with a huge smile on my face (and heart eyes).

And big gold star to whoever made the decision to bring back Jacob Morgan and Teddy Hamilton for the audio narration. After listening to the first two books many (many) times, those guys totally embody Wes and Jamie for me.

Magic!

Jamie and Wes are are one of those literary couples that have so much chemistry that the listener can almost hear the sizzle in the background as the story is being read. And of course it only makes the sizzle louder that Teddy Hamilton and Jacob Morgan are two of the best narrators in the business.

Short and extremely sweet - a must for all Him fan

Oh wow. Gush, gush, gush. Anyone who has read/listened to Him and Us needs this story in their life. Sadly it’s way too short (I know, I know, it is a novella), but I could just listen to Teddy Hamilton and Jacob Morgan portray Wes and Jamie all day long. Audio has been the way forward for me in this series (I must say though, that audio is quite an expensive way to go for only 1 hour and 7 minutes of listening time, but I’m a hardened fan, and this story though short packs a lot of punch, and it definitely did not disappoint. A cute, funny addition to this m/m hockey romance series. I just loved it.

I wanted more

Maybe its because I loved Him and Us so much, that I wanted more from Epic. I was happy to see more of Jamie and Wes, and even explore Jamie’s opportunity with the NHL. It was a good story, but definitely a novella, left me longing for more. It was fun to check in with them and see where their relationship is at. Loved that Jamie got his shot AND that it wasn't more important than Wes.

Checking in with the guys!

A Jamie and Wes Novella! *Swoon*

Epic is book 2.5 in the Him series. It is a quick listen at 1 hour and 7 minutes in duration, and is told in alternating POVs of the two main characters.

This book is centered around Jamie and his career. Things are a bit uncertain as he debates a change. We also got to see a bit of the guys on the ice which is always a good time.

I loved this little check in with characters that I adore. I originally read books 1 and 2, Him and Us, in 2016 and was super excited to see that this novella was just released. What a great surprise. I guess this will have to hold me over since nothing new has been released for the WAGs spin off series since 2017. So glad to find this book and hoping for more in the future.

The narration was perfect. They both did a great job.

—Excellent continuation of HIM—

The good - Narration and vocal chemistry from Jacob Morgan and Teddy Hamilton really goes a long way to elevate the listening experience. Not only is the dialogue crisp and clearly spoken, you can feel the emotion behind what is being said. If you already read books 1 and 2, then I highly recommend giving this a listen, despite its quirks.

The weird - There was some angst about one of the characters possibly being relocated from Toronto to Ottawa due to his career, which came across overly dramatic since it is less than a 3 hour drive between the 2 cities. Both teams are in the Atlantic division of the Eastern Conference, so they would have seen each other at least five extra times due to scheduled divisional play (this would be in addition to all the other times they would have to be together outside of work). There was also some worry about a 45 min commute time, which again, was odd. To be fair, there was also potential for one of them maybe moving to the west coast to play for the San Jose Sharks. Which again, I don’t see as an issue since there are professional sports players in committed relationships who make it work despite the frequent travel.

The bad - At times, there were places where the story felt rushed or incomplete. This did not detract from the enjoyment I got from listening or the 5 stars I gave it.

The frustrating - The emotional climax at the end of the story and subsequent denouement was interrupted by a lovable character we got to know from the previous books. Which was fine, except that the authors decided to end the story not long after that interruption. So, here we are, after everything the two main characters got through together from their own perspectives, and then, umm, no sizzle, no steam, and definitely no sex scene. Usually I am wanting more plot and character development to balance out the sex scenes from M/M romance, however this was not the case with this lovely little gem. It definitely feels like falling off the edge of a massive cliffhanger. I hope this is not the last book in the series.

Not long enough...

Not afraid to admit I still haven't forgiven the authors for not giving us #Wesmie's wedding in a special one-off read. To include it in Blake/Jess's story was SO annoying, and if you think about it, Blake and Jess wouldn't even have gotten together without Wes and Jamie so...not a happy bunny BUT any extra time I get with my 2 guys is worth it, and thanks to all the complaints, the price of this was reduced.

Perfect addition

As always Teddy and Jacob kill it as Wes and Jamie. The book is a perfect addition to their story and the audio book enhances it even further. I LOVE it!!!
