Publisher's Summary

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 was 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?

Horrible narration!

I wish I had listened to the bad review one reviewer gave about the narration. It was slow with individual words said instead of flowing sentences. The narrator mispronounced so many words I couldn't keep track of them. Common words. "Rescind" does not have a long "i" sound in it. A few other words: haphazard, strenuous, and the Cy Young Award is not C. Y. Young! Brutal listening.

Decent story - Bad Narration

It wasn't a terribly original story, but was sweet and well told. I liked the characters enough to give it an overall favorable review and overlook the fact that I've basically read this story before.

This narrator has potential, but didn't hit it on this book. This was not the worst narration I've ever heard and I did listen to the whole book. (I've been known to quit after a chapter with a few bad narrations.) He has a nice enough voice, *bad* female voices though. His pacing/timing was off though and yes, many many mispronunciations - for me the worst was wrought as in wrought iron. I don't know what he said but it definitely wasn't wrought. I can forgive or overlook one or two stalls in pacing or strange pronunciations but this book was SO full of them I don't know that I will be able to listen to it a second time, even though I liked the story well enough. I hope if Christopher Rain is to continue as a regular narrator that he learns as he goes. I'd give him a second chance, but probably not a third unless things improve.

Wish I'd waited for it to be on sale or available through the lending library.
