    One thought on “The Long Season”

    1. I have to be honest, I didn t finished it I read only the first 74% then I went to the end and read the last 2 chapters I could have skimmed the last 25%, the result would have been the same I didn t like this book And I was so certain, I would like this novel Brett Bennet and his best friend and partner on ice Mickey MacKay are chosen as the best players of a province small hockey team in Delavan, Wisconsin, to join a new ice hockey team in Chicago They are high motivated and ambitious to becom [...]

    2. In the 1920 s the game of hockey is in flux Teams are being born and dying in the blink of an eye, and the national leagues are not much better But things are looking up for Brett Bennet and the town of Chicago as the Blackhawks struggle to shine in their new city Brett, newly moved up from a minor league, is full of hope and nervous energy when he and his friend board the train to Chicago They don t know what to expect, but they have dreams of finally making it big in the sport they ve devoted [...]

    3. ARC FOR NETGALLEY I am a sucker for sports books, especially Hockey, so this one intrigued me being a historical hockey M M While it had much of what I typically look for, I just could not get into this one Perhaps for me it was the style in the way the story was told did not work in this book, the flashbacks were choppy The other issue was there were too many conflicts that just seemed to be pilled on, where I would prefer character development, history and real relationship connections.

    4. Fair warning to y all before you get this book it is very hockey heavy and is extremely slow to get to the romance.I am very torn about how to review this book As a novel work of fiction I really enjoyed it You can 100% tell that Gurley did his research However as a romance I don t know if it really worked for me.The biggest problem for me, in the romance department, was that Brett and Jean Paul didn t really have any chemistry or sexual tension It seemed like a romance of convenience than one [...]

    5. Oh man did I love this story Don t tell, but I kept picturing Connor McDavid I m an Edmonton Oiler fan, but that didn t stop my love for these 2 Blackhawk hockey players as Brett and I loved Jean Paul The author was so descriptive I felt like I was watching the hockey games on TV I can t imagine how it must have been in the 1920s, but Michael Vance Gurley sure made me want to visit Chicago even There were so many places, buildings, people he described I just loved the story The story was so com [...]

    6. Gurley s done an incredible job mixing the romance of Brett and Jean Paul trying to make something work against all odds and part of the odds is Jean Paul who at 25 has already accepted that he s not supposed to have love with old time hockey and the roaring twenties It was a treat reading what the gay scene in Chicago and there was a scene was like back then Plus a huge dose of hockey from the extremely rough ways the sport was played to how difficult it could be to travel from place to place T [...]

    7. There is no colorful time in Chicago history than the 20 s This setting is not a mere backdrop but almost a character in of itself within this novel This book goes beyond a typical romance story as the thorough research of this time brings to life a period where professional sports and the people that played and paid were not prepared for changes circling around them Pick it up, you will not be disappointed Purchased copy.

    8. The Long Season kept my attention the entire time I was reading it It was very interesting to learn some things that I did not know about the 20 s Being from Chicago made it feel even familiar to me The struggles were real I would reccomend this book to everyone I would love to read a Sequel

    9. I was rooting for Brett and Jean Paul It was fun to read about their love story with the back drop of 1920s Chicago.
