“We’re both going to mess up. And that’s scary. But I think it’s okay to be a little scared, maybe it’s even good. It means we know what’s in our hands, how precious it is.”

“Our hearts.”

An emotional yet funny enemies to lovers story.

Oliver Bergman is a rising soccer star and always positive and smiling. Gavin Hayes is a legendary player at the end of the year and constantly grumpy. Oliver and Gavin end up being named co-captains of the team, and Coach forces them to play nice or lose their leadership roles. As they finally lower their guards, Gavin and Oliver realize they have tons of chemistry off the field too. 

This story is super emotional and impactful. Gavin is struggling with the end of his career and Oliver is maybe not as carefree as he seems (content warning for anxiety and panic attacks). Throughout the book, they’re forced to open up to one another and we really get to see them working through major transitions in their lives and all the emotions that go along with that. Chloe Liese notes that she was heavily inspired by a Ted Lasso/Roy Kent dynamic from the Ted Lasso TV show, and I can absolutely see that and it makes a perfect grumpy-sunshine story. 

This book does have a bit of a slower start, since we get a taste of Oliver in college and then have a four-year time jump to the present day and needing to get reoriented to where the characters (including the entire Bergman family) are now. I also wish it was maybe even a bit longer to get a little more of especially Gavin’s growth trajectory. 

Overall, in case it’s not already clear, I definitely recommend this book. It’s heartbreaking and heartwarming and will hit you in the feels. At the same time, being back in the Bergman Brothers universe feels a bit like a warm hug.
