There’s never been any question in Sean Tucker’s mind that he’d do whatever it took to make it to the major leagues and be one of the best pitchers of his time. The day he acknowledged to himself that he was gay was also the day he vowed to stay in the closet in order to chase his dreams. The problem is, he never counted on Mason Atley.
Sean showed rookie short stop Mason Atley the ropes, both on the field and off. The two forged a friendship which continued as both of them moved through the ranks of the farm system and into the majors. Unfortunately, there’s always been one secret Mason never felt he could share with Sean. Until now.
For seven years, Sean lived with the fact that he loved a man who would never reciprocate. When Mason admits that he’s always known he’s bisexual but has never allowed himself to pursue a relationship with a man, will Sean be able to put aside his reservations about starting a relationship with the friend he’d always assumed was straight? And more importantly, will they be able to find a way to stay together when their careers keep them apart more than they can be together?
I just could not put this book down, i was sucked into the Sean and Mason’s world and i couldnt get out until the very last page. OMG I loved Sean and Mason they were awesome characters. i felt like i was part of there story i could feel the emotional connection between them.
What i enjoyed the most in this book was there wasnt any great suspense or hugely great angsty moments, there were a few twist and turns to keep you interested but the story just flowed without any ugliness for the characters, sometimes i think you need a story like that its just great easy reading.
It showed the struggles that some gay men in sports face and how to deal with that. I love a good sports romance.
Sloan Johnson never disappoints in her stories her writing is perfection, the plots and story telling have the power to make you loose hours in the day, the characters feel like friends, your taken away into their lives until the last word is read, then she leaves you wanting more.
I cannot wait for more books in this series im hooked!
