Description:

Ryder
It's a cliche' really, falling in love with my best friend, my very straight best friend. And to add more complications, I'm a football player, about to be drafted. We're manly men. We aren't supposed to be gay. But I am and I love the one person I'll never have. Until fate forces us together six years later. It'll be both a fantasy and hell on earth, playing along Crush—the only man who will ever truly own my heart.

Crush
He dropped a bomb on me. Then he left, never looking back. Our friendship—ruined until he lands back in my life. His presence is just as big as ever. I never forgot him, or what that one kiss so many years ago still does to my body. He's here, but is he willing to stay.

Review:

I picked this up for 99p at the beginning of the year. I think the cover drew my eye more than anything - Look at that cover! 💖

This starts with two friends in the locker room after a crappy game and Crush trying to find out what's wrong with his best friend, only for Ryder to kiss him and then storm out, ignoring Crush's texts and leaving without saying anything. Fast forward six years and Ryder is transferring to a new team - Crush's Team - and Crush can't decide if he's happy or annoyed to see the man who kissed him and walked away all those years ago, especially when he hasn't been able to forget what it felt like.

I struggled to get into this from the start. It didn't draw me in and I never really felt that spark between our characters. It didn't bode well for when they got together - I skipped all the sex scenes - because I like to feel something for my characters and I just wasn't gelling with these two guys. Also, as a non American, I have no idea what half of the game play talk is about. That's another part that I skipped.

I am a sucker for cute children in my MM Romances, though, and there are two very cute little girls in this; Loretta and Brooklyn.

If you like MM stories and sports romances, then you will more than likely enjoy this.
