Scott Cole never thought a man like Jason could ever fall for him. Being a relationship with a closeted football player has its pros, but also many cons which slowly erode Scott’s confidence and eventually lead him to choose an open life, even if that means having to give up the love of his life. But it hurts so much…
This is a romance sport between two interesting characters, a closeted and career-focused football player, and an open and camp young genius. They are very different but they somehow meet and fall for each other. The story deals with the problem of homophobia in sports, and the double life some top athletes have to lead. It is very readable and sweet, but it felt a bit naive to me… There is too much tolerance for these two, after outing himself to his team mates, Jason receives a lot of support. Nobody reacts badly. That’s very difficult to believe. It is not realistic either the fact that he was able to live a double life for so long, somebody was bound to babble and the press would certainly find out. In a world with internet and mobile phones everywhere, a secret like that would not be a secret for long… So I have the impression was planned with an ambitious goal and fell a bit short. But as a romance, it is sweet and entertaining.
I liked it.
Jason is a professional football player who is deep in the closet. He spies Scott across a bar and is immediately drawn to him. There are sparks and the two form a solid relationship. Scott has been out and proud, and hiding eventually gets the best of him. There is no doubt the two guys love each other, but sometimes it can just get to you when you have to pretend all the time.
There were parts of the story I really enjoyed, and there were some parts that really bugged me. I liked the struggle Jason faced with being in the closet and the pressure to stay in due to his profession. His family and agent knew of his sexuality, so I was glad it wasn't a full on secret. The real challenge came with his team and the public.
One thing that did bother me is that they seemed to have good communication and such a deep love, but when Scott was struggling with hiding, he didn't talk about it. It seemed like that was a bit out of character, but fortunately the angst surrounding this was wrapped up quickly in pages, so I didn't have to read multiple chapters of misery. I also didn't like how some things were glossed over [(Jason's best friend tried to tell him something a couple of times. I figured out what he was trying to say, but then it is revealed by Scott telling Jason about it. Why couldn't we see this happen after being teased with it?) (hide spoiler)].
Despite the two areas that bugged me, this was a good 3.5 star read that I am rounding up to 4 stars.

This is the first book in a series and I'm not sure whether I'll bother continuing with it.
