From the Puck Around and Find Out blurb:

Ex-Figure Skater–Speed Demon Hockey Player 

Wystan Finch is killing it as a hockey player after leaving Olympic figure skating due to a breakdown. A scholarship leads him to New Gothenburg University, where he joins the Polar Storms, but his arrival isn’t all fun and games. One of his teammates, Atlas, hates him from the moment he arrives. Wystan doesn’t understand why Atlas dislikes him so much, but he takes joy in irritating Atlas whenever he can. If Wystan feels more toward his rival, that’s only his business.

Captain–Or Else

Everything Atlas Frosteson wants is within his grasp. His one goal in life is to become the captain of the Polar Storms. On the day when his dream should come true, he loses the team vote to a hotshot new player, Wystan. When hate turns into something more, Atlas fights against the emotions that threaten to ruin everything he has worked hard for. His father would never forgive him or be proud of him if he gave in to the temptation of chasing after Wystan.

Hate Twists into a New Feeling

No matter which direction Atlas turns, Wystan is always there, both on and off the ice. Atlas is infuriated when his father starts dating Wystan’s mother, bringing them closer in proximity. Atlas’s obsession with Wystan could destroy his hockey career, yet he can’t get enough.

In the end, will Atlas succeed in getting rid of Wystan and taking his life back? And if he does, will he regret it?

Reed Kaye's review:

I'm reviewing the audio edition
This story grabbed me from the beginning. Two guys with problem dads thrown together when Wystan and his mom move in with Atlas and his dad. That isn’t bad enough but Wystan is now on the same hockey team as Atlas and competing. When Wystan is picked team captain the feelings only grow between these two. Being forced together does nothing to make things better. When an incident happens that upsets the status of both guys things start changing.

This is an entertaining story between two guys, the jealousy and pettiness that young emotions can cause so much misery. I enjoyed the competition and the awakening between them of what each other's lives were really like. I feel that the narration by Keval Shah was perfect for these characters.
