Eric Holden is the hottest football player at Las Juntas College - and the straightest, but Abel Epstein never got the memo. He's always one step behind his white knight, with camera in hand, and no one's ever gotten in his way until Eric's best friend, Pacer Daringer, cast a shadow over Abel's happily ever after. Now Pacer has the little stalker in his sights, and he's determined to teach Abel a lesson. What he didn't count on was that Abel might like it.

Not bad but not good. I like books with BDSM but this authors take on discovering kink bothers me. Fiction or not my mind, on several occasions, was screaming "safe word"!
"I want my own personal stalker"
I flippin LOVED this book. LOVED IT!!! I mean, I loved it SO much that even though I just finished it, I'm going to listen to it AGAIN. And I just don't do that. Ever. I don't know who R.D. Hero is, but s/he is my m/m author hero!!! FANTASTIC LISTEN. Ok... enough fanfare.... This story is all about its title, and it is worth a credit, cash, whatever... JUST GET IT.
Michael Stellman is a great reader. I’ll be on the lookout for more of his stuff.
As for characters, meet Abel, Twinky Stalker/Photographer extraordinaire who is stalking Eric, the typical virile college football Hercules in the flesh. And last, but certainly not least, meet Pacer, Hercules' buff BFF and football teammate, who has unwavering high self-esteem, and a persistent, dominating personality complex to boot!! Oh and he has his sights set on Abel. WATCH OUT! LOLOL Can I just say how much I admire Pacer. I certainly wish I had been just as secure in who I was, and what I wanted when I was his age. (I need a time machine!)
Anyway, I won't give up all the details, but I will mention the things I appreciated most about this book. I love reading about personal growth, sexual exploration, messing up, but being an adult about it and actually apologizing! Then there’s the always heart-warming idea of finding someone-- friend or lover--who you can be 'more' honest and more like the 'real' you when around him.
In addition, it’s a delight to read stories where just as it is true in real life, 'story' life NEVER goes according to plan. How about the realization that love, or the possibility of love, can and probably will be a messy (but fun) adventure. Oh and of course, the notion that it really is OK to make mistakes -- I mean, look at me, I make a LOT of them!! Think about it, how else would you end up with a happy-ish ending?
"Abel and Pacer"
Michael Stellman is just perfection when narrating older teens and Young adults characters. The spark of life he brings to characters, as well as, the world the author created is entertainment at its best.
"What a great story"
The author pulls you in to the story and it is nicely written. The narration was great and I plan to see what other books this author has, same with the narrator!
