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....

such a great love story

This is such a great book! Excellent writing!
Its such a great love story.
I was not to sure how this book would go. Some books in this nature are just filled with sex, sex and more sex, with no story line. This was not the case at all with this book. Yes, there was some sex, but it was not badly written and focused more on the story line of the book and the two main characters. The struggles they have went though trying to hide the fact they were gay in the main stream life.
It is worth the listen. Though it does revolve a lot around football. I do not know much about the sport, and would kind of get lost now and then, not understanding what they were talking about, but it wasn't often.

I was gratefully provided this audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator for an unbiased review via Audio Boom..

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.
