love over prejudice

I had no idea Supercross could be so hot!! I felt empathy for Ty and Davey and their need to hide their authentic selves. When outed, and all the biases thrown at them made me heart sick. Then I became furious that the perpetrators kept getting away with it. I was glad to see a big company step up on Davey's side and support him along with his true friends. I liked that their commitment to each other helped them weather this storm and find their happy place with each other. This is a great start to a series I'm interested in following. Many issues in the book reflect present day issues and I find that impactful. I voluntarily listened to a free copy of this and am giving an honest review. The narrator did a great job.

Sports and the real world

In sports no one want to find out their team mate is gay, so it's kept secret. lock in a closet.

For Tyler and Davey, they were thrown together when drunk (birthday boy)Tyler was placed in Davey's bed in his traler. They awoke to find each other and from then it was hard for them to stay away from each other, they let to them being outed by someone taking a photo of them in a compromising position in an alley behind a bar.
Thing escalated from being drop from sponsors to getting fired to treats, assault and vandalism.

As things unfold with new sponsorships and partnerships thing turned around for the better.
Davey and Tyler found that together they can make it.

This was a good sports story. I love the characters and hope to read more about them.
The narrator did and excellent job bringing the characters to life.

Great Story & Narration🎧Riveting & Heartfelt!

I thoroughly enjoyed this great sports romance, it is well writing with original and interesting storylines that are captivating from start to end. The characters are realistic, easy to relate to and connect with. I adored both lead characters, Davey McAllister, a motorcross racer wants to land first place and become the next Supercross champion. It is a highly competitive sport and he does not need any distractions. He comes from wealth so it is not just about the money, is more for the love of the sport. Tyler Whitmore is a mechanic who works for one of Davey’s competitors, he worked hard to get where he is and his experience and expertise got him to work at a more advance level quicker than most. He and Davey first meet in the most unconventional and surprising way. There was an instant attraction and the chemistry between them was electric and undeniable. They wanted to see more of each other but any relationship they have must be kept hidden for two reasons, Tyler works for the competition and neither one is out, choosing to keep their sexuality private. But Tyler and Davey’s feeling for each other out weigh the risks. Those two were great together and for each other. Their relationship was blooming but haters will hate and when they are outed we see their ugliness. From early on I love how supportive Stewart was, getting Angel to work P.R., also liked Brad and Tyler’s friend Janie. This story is well plotted and there is never a dull moment, with plenty of drama both relationship and on the track, so many heartfelt and emotional moments and some hot romance. Thank you Lynn Michaels for this great story and the thrilling and emotional rollercoaster ride. I liked how you deal with the homophobic bigots and haters, thanks for keeping it real and handling as it should. Love is Love!!

Ryk Bowers is a terrific narrator and voice artist. He does a great job portraying the characters, humanizing them, giving them their voices and personality. He sets the perfect tone for the story, captures the characters emotions and projects them into his performance. He is an entertaining storyteller and a pleasure to listen to. Thank you for the great listen🎧

Fantastic

This one really surprised me, the blurb was very interesting so I decided to try it but was a little nervous as I don’t know much about motocross. The book was written in such a way that you didn’t need a big understanding of the sport but you still could follow along easily. The characters went for a fantastically written insta love which just worked it didn’t feel forced or like either side was changing themselves strictly for the other character.

This is definitely a 5 star book in my opinion and I think it would be great for fans of motocross or complete noobs like me

A really good story and narration!

Story; I'm usually not a fan of instalove stories, but with the MCs here it actually worked quite well! Two young impulsive guys and a connection in a very unlikely place and time. I liked how immersed the story was in the motocross world. Despite not knowing much about it, I didn't feel lost or clueless, which is a big plus.

Narration: The narration felt very natural here. There was no intense acting and over the top impersonation. The voice was smooth and easy to follow, so well done.
