Future Goals by Genevive Chamblee (Locker Room Love book 5) - Review, Excerpt & Giveaway

From the blurb:

When a college hockey player needs the help of a sexy older attorney, he gets more than he bargained for when trying to sort out the troubles in his career. Falling in love was never part of either man’s plan

Corrigan Ellery wants to play in the NHL, and the way he hopes to get there is through D1 hockey. His plan is solid but begins falling apart the instant he steps onto the college campus. Old traditions and stereotypes lock him out before he's even in. With no options for failure, he must make his plan work, which is why he has no time to complicate his life by getting involved with a sexy lawyer who is ten years his senior and part of the society that is impeding his plans. But boy, he’d enjoy some bedroom game misconduct with the counselor.

Logical and meticulous, Sacha Weymouth, who is adept at predicting and controlling outcomes, is a successful defense attorney, slated to one day be a partner at a prestigious firm—that is, until a rogue client causes his demotion. Now, he's a step above a gopher at the university law center assigned to getting a contract signed by a hot-shot hockey player. Instead of a signature, he has his life flipped in a direction he never saw coming… to which he objects. But will his heart overrule his head?

Corrigan’s and Sacha’s lives should never have collided. Now they’re left questioning if they’re standing in the way of the other’s future goals, or if there’s room for redirection.

Heather's Review:

Getting to know Corrigan and Sacha was interesting.  I struggled a little bit with the cadence of the language, but the story was sweet... with a bi-awakening, finding your place in the world theme, and lots of stumbling blocks in the form of homophobia and some sports bullying.  If you like your hockey story with a side of Louisiana patois, you'll enjoy reading Future Goals!

This story can be read as part of the Locker Room Love series, but honestly it can also be read standalone.
