Why you should read the All for the Game series by Nora Sakavic
- If I had to put Ao3 tags on these books they would be the following:
M/M; slowest slowburn to ever burn slow; broken boys; enemies to family; protective assholes; violence; blood; swearing; alcohol & drug use; tw for sexual abuse; sports fiction; aggression problem; attitude problem;
- Yeah, yeah, I know. Sports fiction?, you think. But believe me when I say it does not matter if you’re into sports or not. It’s also a fictional sport, mixing lacross, hockey and whatever else and it’s so freaking fast and aggressive, point is the writer invented a sport just for this story.
- The ship may not be actually canon until the third book but the slow burn is heart wrenching and so well developed it blows my mind.
Seriously you don’t even know it’s happening at first, you might even have problems figuring out who the ship even is, but when you do suddenly everything in your life makes sense
- The women are awesome. I have seriously never read women in fiction this well and realistically depicted. You could literally swap every gender in this book and it wouldn’t change a thing.
more reasons to read these books:
- Neil: problematic and so not innocent, but still a cinnamon roll too good for this world, too pure, must be protected at all costs, has lived trough so much and continues to live through so much
- Andrew: literally a small ball of self-distructive psycho with a huge overprotective streak, you will hate him and then you will love him; just imagine a mixture between Ronan Lynch and Mickey Milkovich and add a little more aggression, unpredictability and pain and you got it (thanks to coldsaturn i can now not picture him as anyone else but Noel Fisher), sometimes he makes literature references
- Matt: the true cinnamon roll of this story, still a little aggressive, but good to the core
- Dan, Renee, Allison, Nicky, literaLLY EVERY SINGLE OTHER CHAracter
- THE SECOND BOOK IS CALLED THE RAVEN KING THIS IS A SIGN GUYS A SIGN
- THE FIRST BOOK IS FUCKING FREE AND THE OTHER TWO BARELY COST ANYTHING WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR YOU HAVE NOTHING TO LOSE (
except your heart)
