A Casual Weekend Thing by AJ Thomas. ebook. Good m/m romantic suspense about a San Diego cop who’s on injured reserve when he has to go to Montana to deal with his estranged brother’s death. The characters were enjoyably complex and nearly made up for a few, relatively minor, rough spots in the plot and writing.
Hockey fics. Of course.
(Really, I think he’s sleeping with his eyes partially open.)
