Tennant Rowe has it all, a boyfriend he adores, a loving family, and a career on the rise. He’s sure of his place in the world, and the future can only get brighter. Then one night, in a flash of skates and sticks, life changes forever. Getting back on the ice is Ten’s priority, and experts tell him that it’s just a matter of time.
Jared watches his lover fall in more ways than one, and when tragedy strikes, even the strongest of relationships are tested. Ten is strong, but Jared has to be stronger to help the man who holds his heart. Only, he has to admit that maybe it isn’t just him who can make Ten whole again.
Jared and Ten’s love is forever, but the rocky path to the romantic Christmas Jared had planned may be hard to travel.
Neutral Zone is truly a Christmas gift from the authors to the readers and fans of this couple and series. I don’t really consider this heartwarming novella a standalone story because too much of its foundation, the emotional history and romance rests in the novels that precede it. No, this is that small package left under the tree, glittering ribbons, that you didn’t expect but fills your heart with warmth and joy and holiday spirit.
For most readers of this series (and fans) we have been with this couple since the first story, Changing Lines. We are now at book seven and so much has happened in their lives. Through the wonderful talents of RJ Scott and VL Locey, the readers have been pulled into their lives and that of the fictional Hockey team, the Harrisburg Railers so deeply that they have become real. Each battle won, and lost, all the angst, the romance…we’ve made it ours.
So the events of the past story have been shattering. Now RJ Scott and VL Locey give us and this special couple that Christmas touch. A short story layered over with hope, glittering with warmth and love, and combining the best of the season with what we love about Ten and Jared in 90 pages. Perfect? No, perhaps I would have lingered a little longer around the tree, taken in all that occurred just might more…
But love it? Yes I do. Neutral Zone was just what I and this couple needed. Happy Holidays.
