Publisher's Summary

Two promising college athletes meet, each needing something only the other can give him....
When Roger and Brian lock eyes on the first day of school, a friendship is born. Both men are hungry for connection - Brian needs the acceptance, encouragement, and support he never had growing up, and when he finds out his new best friend is gay, it brings his own sexual identity into question. Roger needs a big brother, a best friend, but that will never be enough, especially not when he's this close to big, strong, handsome Brian.
And both men want something more - careers as professional athletes. For Roger, the demands of the closet, the need to reject the love of a man to fulfill his love of the game, will be a crushing burden. For Brian, his downfall will be the substances he uses to get an edge over the competition, and to suppress his gnawing self-doubt and guilt.
One set of desires will bring them together, the other will force them apart....

The best damn baseball and football love story

The best damn baseball and football love story on Audible. Perhaps a little sappy at times and definitely some ugly episodes in the lives of two great loves who fight to survive and do.

This book was AWESOME

I wasn't ten pages into this story when I knew I would love it, and I did. I enjoyed it so much, and the fact the narrator was also the author made it so much more enjoyable because he knew exactly when to pause, when to show anger, etc. I highly recommend this book, it is great.
