Publisher's Summary

Layton wants success. Adler wants family. How can love make both these things possible?

Layton Foxx works hard for what he has. The condo, the career, the chance to make his mark, are all down to the sacrifices he has made. With tragedy in his past, he doesn’t want or need love. Then he meets Adler Lockhart, the extroverted, sexy winger for the Harrisburg Railers, and abruptly he can’t avoid love even if he wanted to.

Adler Lockhart has had everything handed to him his whole life. Cars, villas, cash, college tuition at the finest Ivy League schools. The only things he doesn’t have are parents who care or the love of a good man. Then Layton walks into his privileged life and shows him what real love can be like.

Great book

With Ten and Jared wanting to announce they are a couple to the world, the Railers hire Layton a spin Dr. Adler is a man with no filter and blues out whatever before thinking. This was the best parts of the book. Adler and Layton were wonderful together and loved the raisin story

Loved this!

Layton has the thankless job of managing PR for a hockey team. Adler is new recruit. Both have their issues and both keep their orientation under wraps. This was a fun and engrossing read, exploring the pressures on elite gay sportsmen. Both characters were well-drawn with Adler’s impulsivity was hugely entertaining and Sean Crisden’s performance was amazing!

Great start to a great hockey series!

This was hysterical! I loved Adler so much! I think this was even better than book 1 and I can’t wait for book 3!
If you love those quirky characters who can’t seem to filter their thoughts – this is totally for you. We get humor, hockey and smexy times! Perfect!
Audio
Sean Crisden does it again! He gives Adler just the right amount of goofiness and Fox the right amount of angsty hero! I love listening to his voice and found his narration boosted this right up to a perfect 5 of 5 stars!
Highly Recommended!

Boring

The story never got interesting —I just didn’t care about the characters. And the narrator made it very hard to distinguish the two voices so I often didn’t know who was speaking. Overall dissatisfying and uninteresting and I usually love hockey novels.

Adorably cute with the narrator.

Enjoyed how this one was presented for this couple. The snarkness was so different. I really enjoy hockey stories. This one put together well.

I love this book, great narration!

Sean Crisden always does a fantastic job with RJ Scott's books. He has a variety of voices and each character is easily distinguishable from each other. I listened to this audiobook when it first came out but forgot to post a review so here goes. 😊

First Season is the second book in the Harrisburg Railers series co-authored by RJ Scott and V.L. Locey. You don't need to have read book one to enjoy this one but you should because it's so good.

Layton Foxx is hired by the Railers hockey team to help manage any fallout from two members of the team (a player and a coach, Ten and Jared from book one) coming out as a couple. He's confident in his ability to do his job by using social media and working with the other players on how to handle this situation. He's not prepared to be so attracted to a player on the team. A player who at first seems to be a bit of a jerk with no filter for what comes out of his mouth.

Adler Lockhart can't help his attraction to the spin-doctor the team has hired. He knows that he doesn't filter what comes out of his mouth the way he should. He resents that Layton assumes he's homophobic and demanded that he attend sensitivity training, so he soon lets him know that he's gay, too.

Wow, this book kept me glued to my e-reader from the moment I started it until I finished. Layton has a lot of baggage and big, tough jocks are something he usually avoids. As he and Adler grow closer he knows that his secret must come out.

I loved everything about this story. Adler buys Layton gifts and this makes Layton uncomfortable; but Adler doesn't know any other way to show he cares. His parents were absent from his life while he was growing up; they even want him to call them by their first names. Adler knows he has to go slow to convince Layton that he's serious about him and so he doesn't scare him off.

The chemistry between these two is really good. The writing of these two co-authors is even better/smoother in this book than it was in book one. My emotions were all over the place reading this one. There were moments that brought tears but there were also light-hearted times that helped balance things out. And, of course, there is an HEA. I am so looking forward to reading more books in this series!

A complimentary copy of this audiobook was provided to me but my review was voluntary and not influenced by the author and/or narrator.

This book never fails to make me smile

The story of Layton and Adler is so sweet. I love all the characters in this series but I keep coming back to First Season again and again. Sean Crisden has also quickly become one of my favorite narrators. The characters are really brought to life and are extremely endearing. Love this book (and series) so much!

Love this series

Loved this one just as much as I did the first one!!! Poor Layton, what happened to him absolutely broke my heart. I know with what happened couldn't allow him to do something but there was a different way to do it & I'm not sure why that never happened. Yes confusing so you will just need to read it yourself. I love all the secondary characters & can't wait for their stories.

Great story, but

The characters in this series have been well developed. The universe/setting is pretty good, Good story development, but it seems like a large portion of the story did not get included in the last half of the book. Just as the story is developed, it goes straight to epilogue. Please finish telling the story in the following books.
