Summary

Latino linebacker Emilio Madero has a huge crush on the new backup quarterback. He's perfection in motion with his lean, muscled body and rich-boy good looks. But there's no way in hell Emilio is going to do anything about it. He'll just have to be content with fantasizing about the guy of his dreams and watching him from afar, because hitting on another player is out of the question. That is until Andrew turns the tables and makes the first move. Then all bets are off as the two of them drift into uncharted territory.

Chris Patton is one of my favorite narrators

So this is a bit sized love story that is pretty angst-ridden.

Emilio has a crush on Andrew but fears he’s out-classed by the all American freshman. Not to mention that he can’t just be gay with a guy on the team.

The night the two get together is a truly awful event of hazing and then furtive sex between a jaded “player” and a golden-hearted virgin. Andrew has a lot to teach Emilio about love – the kind you do with your heart.

The smexy times are super hot between these two and in a short number of pages you get the idea that they just might have a chance at something – it’s definitely something that keeps you interested in the series.

But… be warned it is hard to read at times, there is a lot of pain in this story, but a lot of feels too. And a HFN, no HEA – not yet.

Chris Patton is amazing. I really have become quite a fan of his. I’ve enjoyed every one of his narrations and though he doesn’t do anything “over the top”, he is really good at handling emotions and making you part of the story. It definitely adds to the overall experience.

Awesome

Wow. This took me back to my high school days. Except it wasn't the stadium that realization hit us. Other than that, pretty much a play by play. THANK YOU!!!!

Offensive

In the opening paragraphs the book completely bombed for me. One of the first lines uttered by the Hispanic MC was a racist stereotype. He compared himself to a white teammate and said that he himself looked like he should be in prison and the white teammate looked like the lawyer that would be defending him. Even without that jaw dropping racist bigotry, the book was problematic. It started with humiliating hazing and homophobia. This book needs to be pulled and not ever see the light of day again. I will NOT be reading (or listening to) anything by this author ever again.
