I started this audiobook as soon as I finished the Kage Trilogy because I loved it so much I just had to check out more work by this author. I enjoyed this book but it wasn't great but I may have had my hopes set really high after Kage. I loved the writing and I liked the characters but something about Jeremy was a little inconsistent for me. I can't put my finger on it but whatever it was made me change my mind constantly about him. This was a sweet love story with very steamy scenes. I loved how this ended!! Nothing better than seeing a happy ending! This was a good start to the series and I will be be getting the next book!
The narration was good. He did a good job at the two different voices and making it obvious who was speaking.

This is a complex YA/NA story about two wrestlers finding love in a sport that is fairly homophobic, but in this case their coach is dangerously homophobic.
There is a lot of sex in this – so I think for groupings New Adult is more appropriate, but the angst and drama and sometimes over-the-topness sometimes felt more Young Adult.
Beck’s is gay but closeted, doesn’t want to lose his wrestling scholarship. Jeremy is the new guy, super attracted and attractive to Becks, but having to fight against the fear of outing.
The first part of the book is their push-pull of attraction, the second part is dealing with the aftermath.
The second part is where (for me) it got a bit too dramatic at times, though I appreciated the overall statements that get made and the end result. (I won’t say but it involves the Coach in a very bad way and Jeremy makes some decisions that are really hard to witness.)
At the end we get a very satisfying HEA and our MCs manage to bring the bad guy to justice! (I loved the whole Batman/Robin switcheroo underwear thing – very clever!)
Well I just love Chris Patton so I loved the hell out of this narration. He’s so easy to listen to and I think this hits his “age level” spot on. Kind of young, but mature enough for some hot man on man action. ☺

What a great story. Joel did an amazing job with distinguishing characters and the different accents. I really enjpyed the storyline and would have loved to see Jeremy's dad redeem himself by shpoting the assistant coach for what he did to Jeremy. Beck and his teammates did a good job putting him behind bars where I hope he rots.
