Wells Lemiere knew the moment he saw Matty Haverbrooke, he had to have him. Matty was quiet, he was talented, he was beautiful, and Wells couldn’t stay away. As the youngest and most talented son of the NHL Commissioner, Matty had found the burden of family expectations almost too heavy to carry on even his broad shoulders. He had no intention of getting involved in a relationship with Wells. But the heart he’d given up for dead had other ideas. Their affair was intense and overwhelming, but when Matty couldn’t bring himself to come out and admit he wanted a public future with the man he loved, Wells had no choice but to honor his vow to live openly…and leave Matty behind. But then he learns Wells is marrying another, and Matty knows he can't let that happen. Can he throw down his gloves and embrace his future with both hands? Or will he pull the door to his closet shut once more? TWOMAN_promo2 TWOMAN_KU2  

I love m/m it's one of my fave genre's. Unfortunately this was just ok for me.

Wells and Matty are both NFL players. Wells is out and proud but Matty is not. They have been having a secret affair as Matty's dad is the head of the NFL and is most certainly not open minded.

Wells is desperate to have a normal relationship where they can go out and just be together. Matty is trying to come out but he's finding it hard. He wants to make sure he's ready to do it as he fears his family will disown him.

Wells is tired of waiting and delivers Matty an ultimatum. Come out or that's the end as he refuses to live in the closet any longer.

Can Matty ever live a free life with Wells or will he be forced to give up the love of his life?

So the good points are that it was quite sweet in parts. You can tell that Matty being in the closet is weighing heavy on both of them. The love scenes were very well done and the best bit for me was when Matty claims Wells in front of everyone (not in a naughty way!). The story drew me in enough for me to continue reading and i liked all the side characters too.

The few things that have made me rate it a three are that i hated the amount of times their names were mentioned. I know that sounds odd but it actually drove me insane. I'm not a massive fan of third perspective but the ones i have read have not done this so much. It was all the way through and i think it spoiled it for me. This was a first read of this author for me so I'm not sure if her other books are the same.

The other thing was i found the characters a little immature. The on the off, the running the claiming, the insecurities of both of them and to be honest i didn't care too much by the end if they stayed together.

I can't say i didn't like it. It was ok, it just didn't grab me. I didn't feel much either way for the characters.

3 ok stars

About the Author:
My name is Toni Aleo and I’m a total dork.
I am a wife, mother of two and a bulldog, and also a hopeless romantic.
I am the biggest Shea Weber fan ever, and can be found during hockey season with my nose pressed against the Bridgestone Arena’s glass, watching my Nashville Predators play!
When my nose isn’t pressed against the glass, I enjoy going to my husband and son’s hockey games, my daughter’s dance competition, hanging with my best friends, taking pictures, scrapbooking, and reading the latest romance novel.
I have a slight Disney and Harry Potter obsession, I love things that sparkle, I love the color pink, I might have been a Disney Princess in a past life… probably Belle.
… and did I mention I love hockey?
