If I had read this book without being aware of the other installments in Rachel Reid's let's-face-it fabulous hockey series Game Changers, I might have been all-in, because gorgeous hockey player, cute social media director, said hockey player calling out scuzzy rapist Dallas Kent and coming to terms with his sexuality .... I mean, it's all very, very good.
But because of Heated Rivalry and Common Goal, I have to admit that I perhaps spent far too much time celebrating tidbits of information about Ilya and Shane, grinning to see mentions of Eric and Kyle, as well as Scott and Kip, plus a little shout-out to Fabian from Tough Guy. And with the next book in the series - The Long Game - back to Ilya and Shane, I was a bit .... distracted.
Of all the MCs in the other books, Troy and Harris did not seem as fully fleshed-out or as richly developed. But your results may vary. 3.5 stars for Role Model, and I'm definitely looking forward to more books in this series!
I received an ARC from the publisher, via NetGalley, in exchange for an honest review.
