See the Light (Safe Harbor book 1) by Cassandra Carr

Hockey player Jason Monroe lives a double life—star defenseman and soon-to-be Olympian on the ice and closeted gay man outside the rink. A serious relationship is out of the question, and Jason makes do with anonymous sex in barroom bathrooms, not willing to take the chance on coming out as gay in a decidedly macho sport.

Advisor to the US Olympic hockey team Patrick Parker knows a thing or two about being a professional hockey player who’s not out.  He’s fifteen years older than Jason, and when he senses the sexy younger man is interested, he knows he shouldn’t give in to the attraction. The two men can’t keep their hands off each other, though, and with each heated encounter it gets harder to hide their relationship. Then their world blows up around them, forcing them into the limelight. Will their love survive or be put on ice?

I feel as though with this being the authors’ first M/M book, I think that she did very well. You could tell that she put a lot of thought into the story, instead of just throwing two men together and calling it a day. I really enjoyed the characters; they were really easy to connect with. I did like how the author added a bit of drama into the story because that just added more to it. There wasn’t a large amount of drama in the story though, which was great because you were able to spend time with the couple, and you weren’t lost in a bunch of extra stuff happening. I usually don’t like sports books because I’m not a sports fan. So I did like that even though this book was a hockey a book, that didn’t take over the book. The story was more about the relationship happening between Jason and Patrick. My only complaint about the book would be the ending, just because there were so many questions left unanswered. Between Jason and Patrick’s new found relationship, everything that had happened near the end of the book, I was left wanting to know what was going to happen! There were some parts of the book that really brought forth emotions that I was not expecting from a book in this genre and I completely loved that fact! But I thought that the author wrote them very well and you were able to connect emotionally with the characters while they were going through something horrible. Overall, I did still enjoy the book and I can’t wait to see what the author has for us next! Reviewed by Crystal for Crystal’s Many Reviewers *Copy provided for honest review*

This was my first ever M/M book that I ever read and I found I really enjoyed it. For those who have never read M/M before I would recommend that you do for me it felt like the chemistry and connection between Jason and Patrick was more real than in your everyday M/F book and that is the main thing that really captured my attention. This book had a great storyline and grabbed you from the start the only thing I didn't like was the way it ended. The book ended on a cliffhanger and I would love to see what happens between Jason and Patrick and if their love really can survive them coming out of the closet. Other than the cliffhanger ending Ms. Carr has delivered yet another fantastic read!

I loved reading Jason and Patrick's story in See the Light and I cannot believe that this was author Cassandra Carr's first m/m book. She did a great job capturing the essence of the characters and their fear and stigma of being "outed" to the NHL and the public. I love a story that involves a personal and professional conflict and seeing the characters work hard and do whatever it takes to be together. One kiss was all it took for Jason and Patrick to be addicted to each other. I loved every minute they were together and even apart because when they finally saw each other again, they just exploded on the pages and their sex scenes were hot, hot, hot!!! I really enjoyed their struggle and the event that led them to admit their true feelings to each other and everyone else. I'm already begging the author to write more m/m stories along with her other ones.

As a fan of sports romances I found myself completely enthralled by this story and its characters. It's a fast read but I found the characters to be fully fleshed-out and the romance steamy and believable as it started out slowly, with lots of sexual intensity, and morphed into something more powerful and life altering. See the Light is set in the world of hockey and gives a realistic interpretation of the sport as well as the sport's feelings towards homosexuality. The issue is brought up but it doesn't overwhelm the story. There's no outright bigotry portrayed in the story. The roadblocks holding Jason and Patrick from fully committing are more of an internal struggle, a worry of how others will accept them. It's not until a life or death event late in the story that makes them fight for their HEA. Jason is the new kid on the block, the hotshot star player who's kept the truth about his sexuality secret from everyone. He finds himself obsessed with the older Patrick and throws caution to the wind to start a relationship in secret. He's always been the one calling the shots during his quickies but has never been in a real relationship that's about give and take. Seeing him and Patrick together shows his naïveté and it's sweet yet sexy to see Patrick tutor him. Patrick is older and wiser and in his role as mentor/coach has much to lose in being with Jason. He too is obsessed with the younger man and finds the lighthearted and entertaining in his uncertainties. Patrick is the more serious and adventurous of the two and leads Jason down an exciting sexual path. Jason is more playful, more like a cute puppy, and their differences mesh beautifully together. Again, this leads to numerous off the charts hot sexual encounters. Along with the immensely likable and charmingly sexy main couple comes a cast of secondary characters who add to the realistic feel of the hockey world. Fellow players Rob and Stephen are a great addition to the storyline that shows them in a heroically sexy role that has me hoping this isn't the last we see of them or this sports world. Ms. Carr has written a sexy story that seamlessly incorporates an important issue. I would've liked to see Jason and Patrick in the outside world as a couple as opposed to constantly hiding. An event late in the story forces them to admit their true feelings but as the story quickly concludes thereafter, their true HEA is left a bit up in the air. Ms. Carr's knowledge of the sport is apparent so here's hoping she'll return to these characters soon. Fans of the m/m genre will find this couple worth rooting for and their romance to die for.

Hockey and Hot Men! Cassandra Carr’s books have left huge impressions on me, whether it’s bull riders or hockey ménage her books are full of emotion and great characters. In her new story, Jason and Patrick are part of the USA hockey team and cannot fight their feelings for each other, though they try at the beginning. They begin a secret journey, as they both have a lot to lose if they are ‘outed’ but their tryst are hot and explosive, whenever they can find the time to secretly meet. Bits of humor here and there certainly break up some of the tension around them, especially about their age, Patrick is the older advisor to the team and Jason is one of the players. A tragic event brings things to light and they see what is important in their lives. I have to admit, I shed a few tears during this scene. Though it does seem like the story abruptly ends, Ms. Carr has assured us there are more books coming, would love to hear how their relationship is going, I don’t want them to be lonely anymore.

Love Cassandras books. This was a great M/M storyline.  This is a story about Jason who is a hockey playing and getting read to join the Olympic Hockey team.  Jason has yet to come out to his teammates and family.  Jason generally hooks up with random guys, until he meets on of his new Olympic coaches.  He is instantly attracted to him.   He is not sure if his new coach is even gay. Patrick is a coach and is also instantly attached to Jason, but also not sure of he is gay either.  They both soon find out that they are attached to each other.  They start seeing each other in private and are  slowly starting to care for each other.   See what happens with these two gorgeous men as they figure out what is most or their job.  They are both worried about coming out in a sport like hockey with not many openly gay men. But maybe there is a way to have both. Defiantly a must read.  I loved this and Cassandra even made me cry.

Cassandra Carr is no stranger to writing erotic sports stories, but this is her first travel into the world of GLBT with See the Light. Jason is in the closet and afraid to come out because of his career has a hockey player but finds himself attracted to one of the coaches. Talk about a problem and not knowing how to handle it. Patrick is not as far in the closet as Jason but he is still very cautious about who knows and now he finds himself in new territory with his attraction to one of the team’s players. I moved this book to the top of my “to review” list and had it read in one night. It is one of those cannot put down books that you just keep reading because you have to know what happens next and will Jason and Patrick hook up and will it last. Cassandra Carr is one of those authors that will always be on my “must have” list.
