Davesh and Zed are many things. Teammates. Best friends. And for a long while now, lovers. Davesh knows the ins and outs of Zed—how to make him laugh, what makes him moan, and the look in his eyes when he sees something he wants. And the way he looks at their new goalie? It’s the same look Zed gave him right before their first kiss that changed everything. But the thing is, Dave Davesh and Zed are many things. Teammates. Best friends. And for a long while now, lovers. Davesh knows the ins and outs of Zed—how to make him laugh, what makes him moan, and the look in his eyes when he sees something he wants. And the way he looks at their new goalie? It’s the same look Zed gave him right before their first kiss that changed everything. But the thing is, Davesh wants too. Still, wanting is far easier than having, especially when it comes to Kevin. Fighting to earn his place on the team and get them to the Stanley Cup, Kevin doesn't have time for distractions. Even if those two distractions are everything he’s ever wanted, wrapped up in a tidy bow. In spite of how well Davesh and Zed have taken care of him since he started with the Phantoms, Kevin isn’t sure he can handle the two men who are so big, and so bright, and so full of love. He’s not sure he’s ready for it, and more importantly, he’s not sure he deserves everything they have to offer. Between the Pipes is a steamy MMM romance between three members of the fictional NHL team, The Brooklyn Phantoms. It contains a sunshine-sweet Deaf center, his relentless, gorgeous center lover, and an emotionally constipated goalie who knows what he wants, just not how to let himself have it. Free book available on Prolific Works Content Warning: This book contains mentions of anxiety, audism, a relationship with mild D/s undertones, and a non-graphic sports injury. Please take care if any of these things are triggering for you.

    So the authors warned me to suspend disbelief, coz they took a lot of liberties with how the hockey league works, and how hard of hearing people live. Aaand despite the warning I just... there are things you can't/shouldn't take liberties with, imo. But to each their own. I also did not like the writing. There were a few paragraphs where I thought oh this is good, but the rest ugh. And in general this story is too sweet for me. So um clearly I'm not the target audience. lol So the authors warned me to suspend disbelief, coz they took a lot of liberties with how the hockey league works, and how hard of hearing people live.

    Ugh if I never hear the term prairie boy again, I’ll be happy. Kevin is a prairie boy apparently. Said 8 times in a novella. WTH. This is book .5 in a new series. I read book 1 already. These 3 characters play a pivotal part in book 1. I should have read this book first or not at all. 😬 Kevin, Zed and Davesh all play hockey for the same team in NY. Davesh and Zed are already in an established relationship but want to bring Kevin into their dynamic. It’s never said why exactly but they both love K Ugh if I never hear the term prairie boy again, I’ll be happy. Kevin is a prairie boy apparently. Said 8 times in a novella. WTH.

I’m sure there’s a backstory but we never get it. So this insta love felt off. Kevin using the term “bud”was off putting. Are you ready bud? During sexy times was ick. Totally took me out of the story. I’ve only read that term in age play books, which this book is NOT. At first I was sad this was a novella, after that term was used, I was glad this was short. Because it was short we get only one sex scene and it’s at the very, very end. Meh. I’ll do a word search of chirp, bud and prairie boy before I start book 2. Hopefully it isn’t said more than 30 times because overused words are UGH.

    Errr, what do I think?? I think this was terrible! This is exactly the reason that I don't gravitate towards ménage. I have to know and trust the author because this was awkward and uncomfortable for me. I didn't care for the dialogue or the writing. I didn't care for...a lot of things. I'll just leave it at that. *1.5 not-for-me stars* Errr, what do I think?? I think this was terrible! This is exactly the reason that I don't gravitate towards ménage.

    Yep, I have no interest in sportsball of any kind and of all of the sports I have watched hockey the least but for some reason I adore hockey romances the most! I can't honestly explain why and I can never remember any of the hockey terms no matter how many times I read them. I told one of the authors that for me it's "one player has the puck, now another player has a puck and someone either scores or doesn't and then they fight and then they fuck." And I am hooked.

I told one of the authors that for me it's "one player has the puck, now another player has a puck and someone either scores or doesn't and then they fight and then they fuck." And I am hooked. This shorter prequel was really special in a lot of ways. It had a poly relationship that was everything I hope for in poly relationships. Even though there was an established couple, they both wanted the third badly and equally and treated him as an equal part of the trio which doesn't always happen and that's why I am leary of poly books. It also had a character that was hard of hearing and I love how EM Lindsey has incorporated different types of disabilities in her books and humanizes them and shows that they can and should be loved and have the same capacity for love as anyone else. I think we tend to forget that and only focus on the disabilities themselves. Marina, on the other hand, is becoming one of my favorite authors because she has a depth of writing that is beautiful and soulful and can show the rawness of flawed characters and make them bloom. For those reasons, I am very excited about this series and this was a lovely start!

    3.5 Stars. I liked this book. This was very much in line with the type of book EML usually writes with the added help of strong diverse characters that MV is known for as well. It had a lot of diversity and some real feels but I missed the breadth of heart and lyricism of the writing I am used to from MV. This was an ambitious amount of story to tell in novella form and could have benefited from a full book that evened out how this one starts. I would have felt less instalove-y if we hadn't been 3.5 Stars. I liked this book.

I would have felt less instalove-y if we hadn't been dropped into a stable relationship that has already set their sights on adding a partner they've fallen for. If only he'll notice the signals they are sending... It's a good start to the new series.

    BETWEEN THE PIPES has me interested in trying more in this series but there's just something about E.M. Lindsey's writing style that doesn't totally work for me. I was a bit confused in the beginning on the exact relationship between Davesh, Zed, and Kevin. It was clear that Davesh and Zed were a couple but I wasn't sure where Kevin fit in -- were they just friends? had anyone expressed their interest or feelings for each other? -- they were obviously very close but how close was unclear at firs BETWEEN THE PIPES has me interested in trying more in this series but there's just something about E.M.

It was clear that Davesh and Zed were a couple but I wasn't sure where Kevin fit in -- were they just friends? had anyone expressed their interest or feelings for each other? -- they were obviously very close but how close was unclear at first. That being said I did like the hockey scenes and I loved how much these three guys cared for each other. They were that perfect combination of sexy and sweet.

    This was very middle of the road for me. I'm not sure how I feel about the writing style and I found myself getting lost in who was talking a lot of the time. I felt like this picked up in the middle of a world I had no background on, but I read its important to read this prior to the first full length novel! This was very middle of the road for me.

    Picky. Judgey. Critical.

    I like most of Lindsey's book, occasionally misses the mark but this is pretty good, especially for MMM. It's still has Lindsey's usual serious, heavy feeling narrative. Never read Vivancos' work, so I'm not sure what part may have been hers. I enjoy hockey stories and this had a decent mix of game play with the slow relationship development. Kevin's characterization was rather thin. The sex scenes were pretty hot, only one with them all.
