あらすじ・解説

How much are you willing to give up for the man you love?

Best friends Nick Johnson and Tyler Jensen seem to have the world by the tail. The 18-year-old stars of their school’s hockey team are looking forward to playing in college and hoping for careers with the pros.

Nick and Tyler know a lot about each other, but there are a few important details they haven’t discussed. To start with, neither man knows the other is gay. Making things interesting, Nick has a massive crush on Tyler, something he’s kept to himself for a long time. And although he’s never said a word about it, Tyler has wanted to date Nick since they met.

On a cold Minnesota night after a big win, Tyler finds the courage to confess his feelings to Nick. When Nick admits his attraction to Tyler, their relationship turns on a dime. As they fall in love, they skate around the challenges of a secret romance in an all-male boarding school, but what will happen when the stakes rise dramatically in a sport not known for being gay-friendly? Will Nick and Tyler make the easy choice or the hard one?

The New Next One is a new adult, friends-to-lovers romance featuring young athletes, plenty of steam, and a lot of emotion. Besides learning the background for Nice Catching You, you will meet the main characters for the authors' book Fire in the Ice.

Beautiful story of young first love!

This is a wonderful sweet story of young first love. This is the story of a younger Nick, Tyler and Kev. The narrator is awesome and perfect for this story and the rest of the Bethesda Barracudas Hockey series. Check out the rest of the audiobooks in this series.

Young Love!

This was an incredibly sweet short story that lets you in on a Young First Love! Even tho shorter, don't think you'll be missing out on and completed book full of emotions. it was written perfectly!

This prequel gives you a taste of who Nick, Tyler and Kevin were and what made them into who they are in their own respectable books. From the fears of you first coming out, to falling in love with your best friend, to even being wary of a certain freshman hanging around. You won't be sorry for picking this up and beware: Ryan and Josh hit you in the heart at the end!! but it's worth it.

As always, Nick Russo just did a stellar job in bringing these characters to life!

First Love

This novella was beautifully portrayed by Mr. Russo. His voice is soothing and expressive, which definitely added to the story of teen emotions, and their innocent reactions to their first experiences of love. The genuineness of these new feelings was very evident in this top-notch audio. This excellent audiobook will certainly be a delight if you enjoy a tender, poignant tale of finding your first passion with all of its intensity. Happy listening!
Storyline
This prequel to Nice Catching You is a tender coming-of-age story centered around two teenage best friends. Both young men play hockey and apparently think the epic crush each has is one-sided. Nick has yearned silently for his best friend Tyler for so long. You can only imagine how startled he is to find Tyler is not straight and is reciprocating the same feelings.

The young men just utterly captured my heart. Their story is straightforward and free of complex angst. Both have stable backgrounds and are still in high school, so this seemed like a genuine and innocent first love. The only major complication is their combined interest in a sport that is not gay-friendly. Coming out would make their lives difficult, and Tyler and Nick are painfully aware of this.
The ending initially seemed abrupt, but, in retrospect, it was very fitting. I look forward to more of Tyler and Nick and want to treat myself.

Nick and Tyler have been best friends since the start of prep school and have secretly crushed on each other for the entire time. Tyler finally gets the courage to say something and their relationship changes into something great but with college around the corner, they will need to make a tough decision.

I loved this look back into Nick and Tyler’s beginnings and getting to see what led to the future events. Although they are adorable together, I loved their individual stories. I would recommend reading this book first before the rest of the series but either way you read it, it is still enjoyable.

Nick J. Russo does another amazing job at bringing the characters and story to life.

The New Next One contains… mm, prep school, sports (hockey), first times, closeted, secret relationship, single first-person point of view.

Beautiful Story of First Loves and Hard Decisions

I’ve read and listened to Nice Catching You and simply adore Nick. I enjoyed learning about parts of his life that made him into the ‘Nick’ I met in Nice Catching you. If you haven’t met Nick, you can start here and then read Nice Catching. The books were written in a way you can read them in any order, or you can read them in order. Both ways are enjoyable ways to do it. It will just come down to a personal preference - particularly the first time you read them.

Even though this is a short book, nothing felt rushed or forced. We learn they’ve been friends for a long time, along with other tidbits I won’t spoil for you. This story felt genuine and sincere. It was full of all the idealism of youth we all remember, yet it touches elements of growing up, as they are both 18 years old. They’re about to embark on adulthood, so we witness the two stages merging.

This was a well-written story full of charm, laughter, first love, friendship, hope, and promise. As I’ve said, I adore Nick, and it wasn’t hard to like Tyler. Kevin was a fun surprise. These authors are truly talented, not only with their ability to create heartfelt and engaging stories but in developing wonderfully imperfect characters that are made perfect just the way they are. You can’t help but fall in love with them; you can’t help but want more.

I felt Russo did an excellent job capturing the strong emotions in this story. I felt everything while reading it, but it was even more intense in audio. I cannot express enough how much I love this series. It has me exercising my emotional range, and I love every minute of it!

Such a beautiful story!

I have listened to and loved all of the Bethesda Barracudas hockey series but this one is extra special. Written by own voices authors, it tells a story of first love and first times that feels so authentic it made me cry. Nick J Russo is the perfect choice to narrate this book. His performance is flawless. I would highly recommend this book to anyone!

Loved it!

Ryan Taylor and Joshua Harwood have done it again. The New Next One is a heartwarming story that is full of hope, first love between two up and coming young hockey players, coming of age, and challenges. It is the prequel to Nice Catching You. I’ve read both stories and loved them both. The New Next One is a must listen and if you haven’t listened to Nice Catching You make sure you listen to that too. You won’t regret it.

This story is worth the credit

First I need to say Nick J. Russo is very good at his craft, he brought the MCs to life and gave this story heart.
Thank you Nick Russo for being so awesome. XoXo
This is a very good story, I like Nick even more now. His dream became a reality when he met Jacob on the bus 😊
I look look forward to Ty & Kevs story.
If your an emotional Man or Woman, be sure to have tissue handy, the last 15m broke my heart 💔

A short story about two of my favourite characters

An enjoyable short story about Nick who we met in Book #1 and Tyler who we meet in book #3. Nick J Russo does a good job of portraying the characters in this novella, I really liked his portrayal of Nick.

Tyler and Nick have been friends for years and have hidden the fact they are gay from each other and everyone else. When Tyler takes a risk and expresses his feelings to Nick everything changes for them both, but it's still a secret from the rest of the world. I really felt for these guys, it's sad they felt the need to hide who they were so as to be able to play a sport. I loved their blossoming relationship and it was nice to get the background of them both, especially Tyler as his relationship with Nick and their friend Kevin really comes into play in Fire in the Ice. I'd have probably preferred to read this before book #1 as I'm all for continuity of timelines when reading a series, but it still works well reading/listening to it after.

Sweet and Hot!

4.5 Stars!

This was bittersweet for me. For one part, I really liked Nick and Tyler individually and together. Their jump from friends to lovers was seamless and even if they had to keep their relationship a secret from everyone in their school and their team, it worked for them. For the other part, since this is the prequel to Nice Catching You, I knew how this book was going to end and it hurt.

This was a short audiobook, filled with all the awe and tender hotness of that first love, masterfully narrated by Nick J. Russo who just brings those youthful feelings forth with his voice. Definitely a recommendation from me!

I loved it!

I really loved this novella but I was a little puzzled as to why the authors decided to release this one after Nice Catching You. As I wrote this review though, I came to understand the logic of publishing this book after Nice Catching You. I was very satisfied with how The New Next One ended but a large part of that was probably because I had already read Nice Catching You. So, my recommendation is to read that book before you read this one.

Some purists would say that this book isn’t a romance because it doesn’t have an HEA or HFN. A friend suggested that I should say it’s a love story rather than a romance. Whatever you want to call it, I thought it was a beautiful story. One of the MCs does get an HFN in this book and the other gets his HEA in Nice Catching You.

The New Next One (that unusual title makes sense after you’ve read the book) is a story that didn’t leave me feeling unfulfilled or sad. It’s not a tragic love story. It’s a story about all the passion and emotion of first love and I loved it.

I almost forgot to say that Nick J. Russo did another fine job with his performance of this book. He’s done a great job will all of the books in this series.

A complimentary copy of this audiobook was provided to me at my request but my review was voluntary and not influenced by the author and/or narrator.

First Love

Ryan Taylor and Joshua Harwood have written a really sweet story about first love. This time it's about Nick's first love and growing up with all the problem around it. And of course hockey is also a theme.
I loved this heartwarming story and it got pretty emotional at the end. Greatly done, I highly recommend this audiobook. And it makes you want to listen to Nice Catching You, because that's where you get to see what happens next with Nick. I listened to this story again right afterward as well. So good!
As always, Nick J. Russo has done a great job. Nick, to me, is the perfect narrator for the Bethesda Barracudas Hockey series. His narration is engaging and emotional.
