“This is a really sweet follow up short story of Alex and Simon that takes place during their freshman year in college. Really cute story of the guys without being sappy.” — Sadonna, Goodreads
“I really liked this little hit of Simon and Alex now that they are in college. We get to see Simon and Alex in a more casual, comfortable, stress-free environment and are shown examples of the impact their story has had on others.” — Jason, Joyfully Jay
What a great lil stocking stuffer of a story!” — Scott McQuiston, Goodreads
“That was rough,” Alex said. “But, oh my God, Simon, we just played hockey on a baseball field!”
Yes, we’d just lost in overtime to Western Michigan in the semis of the Great Lakes Invitational. But we’d played the game outside at Detroit’s Comerica Park. The team was a mix of emotions, shifting between the disappointment of the loss and the thrill of GLI moving outside as part of the events around the NHL Winter Classic. As Alex and I departed the stadium with our teammates, my excitement was hard to contain. I was somewhere between walking and bouncing as we headed out into the crisp night.
