Publisher's Summary

A straight quarterback. A gay physical therapist. Love is out of bounds...Right?

Malcolm Rodgers loses everything in one week.

The quarterback is benched with an injury the same week his fiancée breaks off their engagement. Lost, hurting, and stuck on the sidelines, Malcolm must spend his days in physical therapy with the one person who refuses to let him get back in the game: cocky Vance Coberly.

Vance is out and proud in the macho world of pro football. As the top physical therapist in his field, flirting with football players is strictly out of bounds.

But the rules of play all change when Vance meets Malcolm.

Malcolm can't deny what he feels for Vance - but Vance won't be someone's one-time fling. Can a Hail Mary gesture save the deepest love Malcolm has ever felt?

Fantasy football takes on a whole new meaning in this 100,000 word steamy out-for-you football romance, complete with lots of heat and a happily ever after ending.

    Story
    "Fantastic start - fizzle ending - great narration!"

    This is the first book I’ve read by this author – I’ve attempted others but haven’t made it all the way to the end. I’m not sure that I’d have finished this if I hadn’t been listening to the amazing Greg Tremblay – but I was glad I did.

    The first half of the book is wonderful. I was LOVING it!

    Malcolm is a bit of an enigma, and such a great person. Good, kind, a little naïve. Wonderful. Vance is just a bit more worldly, more jaded, more snarky – but still – nice and kind.

    I love the slow burn between them, the silly drinking games and the patient wait for sex.
    Even though this is a fairly low steam book, the connection is there and I really felt their chemistry.

    However, after the first half of the book – things go sideways. The relationship moves from gentle exploration and love and passion to a Big Misunderstanding and hiding and anger and stubbornness. It was amazingly frustrating and I didn’t understand how two people whose number one commitment is “Honesty” could go on so long with this “issue” between them.

    In any case, they muddle through that issue and we get a lovely HEA. (If you read the e book and are willing to sign up for her newsletter the author will send you a “bonus chapter” that adds some steam to this low steam story. Alas, not in audio format.)

    As always, Greg made this story for me, and he was the main reason I picked up the audio. I love how he brings a story to life and I thought he gave full characters to even secondary or minor characters. His narration really made me stick it out and I give his narration 5 of 5 stars.
    As for the story, I’d give 4.5 stars for Part 1 and 2.5 stars to part 2 – average of 3 of 5 stars.

    For both narration and story – 4 of 5 stars – I’d still recommend it – but be warned ☺

    "much more than your average sport story"

    It was easy to get into the characters of this book. I rarely listen to sport based stories but in this case the sport was just the context around which the characters relationship developed. The characters were fantastic and their story well worth listening to.

    Story
    "Didn't love it, but didn't hate it..."
    Any additional comments?

    While it had some good moments at the beginning, particularly the relationship building and slow burn, it lost momentum halfway in, and then had miscommunication issues, until nearly the end, that drove me almost insane.

    Greg Tremblay does a fantastic job with the character voices, timing and pacing, which helps with the story's momentum issues in a way that kept me interested, but he just couldn't get me over the miscommunication.

    BUT - anyone who knows me, or reads my reviews, knows that I absolutely hate miscommunication/misunderstanding, so take my opinion with a grain of salt.

    All in all, I didn't love it, but I didn't hate it either.

    Story
    "You have to be kidding ....."

    Ok . I have to truthfull. ok so beginning this book I was a bit skeptical , the synopsis made it look interesting . personally I think it had a good plot behind it . their were parts of the story that had me lost in its story and then it was like listening to the news . I love the romance part it was brilliant . I didn't mind that it wasn't very sexual it was actually refreshing but so much was left off. the story has been filled with empty conversations with characters. I wanted to give it more stars but i couldn't get over how it was narrorated . the voice fit the main characters its just hearing it as if someone was watching the couple made so bland . parts of the story kept me on edge and then it just fell off . I know as a writer you can do better .

    Story
    "Genuine and heartfelt
    "

    While the characters conform to an idealistic physique and are at times stereotypical , the story itself invokes true emotion and genuine human dynamics. the characters travel through a completely realistic emotional experience. Many of the story arcs are completely relatable in some facet for most readers.

    "Happy and Mad at the same time"

    Loved this story but some parts made me SO ANGRY! Loved the story of Vance and Malcolm. HATED HATED HATED the parts of discrimination and the bigoted reactions especially by Malcolm's coach.

    Even though Vance and Malcolm stayed apart (which made me mad) I really liked how it ended.

    "Awesome..."

    I'd like to thank the author for surprising me with the setting of this book . I'm from Orange Park, FL (Clay County) and imagine my surprise when the book played out in Jacksonville.

    The story content along with the narration made me feel as if one of the characters could have been a friend or relative of mine.

    Definitely will visit this story again at a later date.

    "One of the best!"

    This is my first Kay Simone audiobook but I've got a few in total through my headphones and this is in my top 3.
    The story flows so well, characters developed and connectable.
    Greg does a brilliant job with this story, bringing out the depth and emotion in every scene.
    I highly recommend!
