I’ve been saying that I want to read these two for a while and then I saw this available on audio and just took a chance and snagged it up.  Without looking at reviews, without even looking at the blurb.  Her, look at the cover!  It’s a sports related m/m.  All I need to now.

What I got was one of the sweetest stories I’ve read in a while.  Perfectly developed and not without hurdles for the characters to go through.  It had its sad moments and its hot moments and its funny moments.  So enjoyable that I literally couldn’t put it down.  Even when I had review books with past due deadlines staring me in the face!  I devoured this book, I lost sleep over this book so I could listen to just one more chapter.

Jake and Brandon went to high school together.  Jake was the jock, football star.  Brandon was the nerd.  Their paths didn’t cross then.  Now they are both back in town, teaching at their old school.  Brandon gets assigned to be an assistant coach for the baseball team, where Jake is the lead coach.

Jake has to deal with his injuries and physical ailments from pushing his body as much as he did when he was young.  Brandon has to deal with having put on hold his dreams of what he really wanted to do.  And they are both gay.  Not in the closet 100%, just not openly to the people they deal with everyday at school.

While they have to fight their attraction because they don’t know if the other is gay, they are just the cutest thing to watch.  Jake has a very happy and upbeat personality and I think it complements Brandon’s introverted side very well.  But when Brandon lets loose he’s a force to be reckoned with.  All sexy prowling animal going for what he wants.  Loved, loved, loved!

I’m a 30 something sun lover living in the Big Apple (read New York).I’m a book and coffee addict and lover of all things elephants.

I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!

I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.

You’re welcome. Oh I hope you enjoy it Christi! I haven’t read about Ty and Zane yet, I have to get on that. And I don’t *think* this one will be a series, just a standalone.
