“HIGH BALLS is a bit more serious than the previous books in the series and I think I was missing some of that “fun” element.”
~ Under the Covers

I’ve had a soft spot in my heart for this series for years and I was so happy to see that a new book was out!  One that always stands out are the oddest couples and HIGH BALLS doesn’t disappoint in that.

Theodore is 26 and raising his young son alone after his wife died.  The questions are many about when did he figure out he was gay, was it later in life since he has a kid?  But he’s also not have a whole lot of experience because a lot of his adult life had gone in a different path.  And he wouldn’t have it any other way.  He loves Andy and will do anything to protect him and keep them together.

Then he meets Snake and he embodies everything Theo isn’t.  He’s big, tattooed, has long hair, rides a Harley and works at a bar.  With the direction his life needs to take, he can’t be seen with someone who might be judged by his appearance.  But he can’t stay away.

I think my favorite part of this story was Andy!  Yes, the kid.  He’s so adorable and has such an easy connection with Snake that I loved.  While I found Theo and Snake to be cute as a couple, and they had chemistry, I don’t think I was ever as invested in them.

HIGH BALLS is a bit more serious than the previous books in the series and I think I was missing some of that “fun” element.  But Theo is in a serious position so it made sense for the story.  It goes back to expectations.

Nonetheless, this was an entertaining read and it’s certainly not going to keep me away from reading more in this series if Tara Lain writes it.

About Tara Lain

Tara Lain never met a beautiful boy she didn’t love – at least on paper. A writer of erotic romance, mostly ménage and male/male, Tara loves all her characters, but especially her handsome heroes. A lifelong writer of serious non-fiction, Tara only fell in love with EROM in 2009 and, through perseverance and lots of workshops, had the first novel she ever wrote accepted for publication in 2010. She’s now on book fourteen and counting. After an exotic life of travel all over the world and work in television, education and advertising, Tara settled in Southern California with her soul-mate husband and opened her own small marketing business. She paints, collages, and started practicing yoga “way before it was fashionable”. Passionate about diversity, justice, inclusion and new ideas she says on her tombstone it will read, “Yes”.

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.
