Goalie Interference

It’s goalie vs. goalie in this brand-new enemies-to-lovers hockey romance from Avon Gale and Piper Vaughn…

Ryu Mori has had a stellar season as goalie for the Atlanta Venom. So when he’s called into management’s office, he’s expecting to hear he’s the new starting goalie for the team, not that some new guy—an incredibly hot, annoyingly bratty rookie—is here to compete for his spot.

Not everyone gets to play in the best league in the world. Emmitt Armstrong knows that, and he’s not about to waste the opportunity after grinding his way from the bottom to the top. If the Venom is looking for a meek, mild-mannered pushover, they’ve got the wrong guy.

Ryu doesn’t want to admit the other goalie’s smart mouth turns him on. Beating Armstrong at practice feels good, sure, but there are other, more fun ways to shut his rival up.

In this league, it’s winner takes all. But there’s more to life than winning, and if Emmitt and Ryu can get past their egos and competitive natures, they might just discover they work better as partners than they ever imagined possible.

The Queer’s Review

How do I put into words how much I’ve enjoyed this book?

It doesn’t feel like I can do it justice. Like, at all.

Both MCs are so loveable, even though they don’t have a chance at all if compared to Jun. But still, Ryu holds a special place in my heart not just because he’s a goalie. I don’t know what my thing with goalies is. Or grumpy Russians. Good thing he’s not both because then I would have had a problem.

Just thinking about him and how he handles his aversion to touch makes me wanna abandon this review and reread the book instead.

But there is so much more to Avon and Piper’s book. It’s fun, it’s good, it’s fucking intense at times – and there is no easy solution to their rivalry. I won’t spoil you how they solve it but lemme tell ya that I was with them the whole way.

Bookish Thoughts

How can I forget everything about Goalie Interference so that I can enjoy it for the first time again?


I received a free ARC through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you.
