Summary

Dominic Ramos is a Premiership football player with a secret. There are no trophies for being gay in his game. Locked into his rep as the meanest defender on the pitch, keeping his secret is soul-crushing, but love has no place in his sport, even if his soft heart craves it.  

Lucky Coleman is on his knees when he meets a man with more money than sense. It's a Grindr hook-up for cash, not a love match, but dreaming of his desperate, kind eyes earns a place amongst his numerous bad habits.  

Meeting once was risky, twice pushes Dom's courage to the limit. Losing Lucky seems inevitable, but his tight grip on his image counts for nothing when Lucky starts to fall.  

Catching him could cost Dom everything, but if he can set his heart free, getting Lucky long term might be a risk worth taking.  

Contains mature themes.

Terrific book and Narration

I completely enjoyed this book. The angst Dom goes through struggling with his need to stay in the closet. meeting Lucky turns his world upside down in a good way leading to him questioning if this is the way it has to be. Lucky is such a complex character. I found the story gripping wanting the them to get a HEA.
The narration by Shaun Grindell is superb. He completely captured both Dom an Lucky for me. His voice completely suits this story. I hope he narrates Cash when (if) it comes out. Can’t wait.

DNF, false advertising

I guess I noticed too late that the blurb for this book really only describes one of the two protagonists. Dom's story seemed interesting enough to give it a try.

The first chapter was just sex. I'm no prude, I like sex in my books. I prefer plot. of course, but since it was pretty much the exact situation I read about in the blurb, I was down for it. When the second chapter neared, I was more than ready to move into the meat of the book. However, the second chapter was ALSO sex, with the same two people, but with the positions reversed. Er, ok, I guess I can understand getting the other person's perspective, though since the roles also changed, not much was different about the second chapter than the first. It wasn't until the third chapter, which followed Lucky, who had sex AGAIN, that I began to question my purchase. And since he was having sex with a woman, because he's apparently a pansexual drug addict, I realized this book was really not what I signed up for. I know some people will be totally up for a book about a drug-addicted transient who has sex with women periodically, but personally I think the blurb was a bit deceptive. Into the refund pile this goes.
