I thought I was the head coach in this relationship.

Sarina Bowen & Elle Kennedy


Note: Epic was originally featured in the Christmas in the City Anthology (December 2019, no longer available). It can now be found on it’s own in various formats.

Publisher’s Synopsis:
Jamie and Wes are having a blast living and working in Toronto. Until a scout for another team swoops in to make one of them an offer that might complicate the life they’ve built together.

Point of view:
1st Person. Alternating perspectives between Jamie & Wes.

Rellim’s Thoughts:
This short story is book 2.5 in the Him series. Chronologically, it also takes place after the WAGs series (spinoff featuring characters from Him/Us), but only slightly mentions the couple from Good Boy. You could listen to it before WAGs and be fine.

At only an hour, Bowen & Kennedy manage to pack a lot in for fans of the series. It’s a short so there isn’t a lot of opportunity for sexy scenes. (There’s some making out, but sex is closed door.) Blake is his adorkable lovable self. The hockey was fantastic and includes a big surprise for everyone. The title “Epic” is well deserved.

Dual narration by Teddy Hamilton & Jacob Morgan is fantastic. They didn’t miss a beat despite having recorded the previous book 3 years ago.
