Trite and repetitive - why do gay novels generally tend to be little more than a series of strung togther sex scenes with little narrative content ad even less literary value. Come on guys we deserve better than this. The theme of issues of being openly gay in sport is raised but the the novel closes before the consequences of being out are seen and the story developed. Mills and Boon for gay men with sex included! An hour's read at best with little characterisation or story outside the sex scenes.

Kasey and Garrett are twins who happen to be both gay and public figures. Garrett is an out gay actor and Kasey a basketball player who isn't ashamed of his sexuality but is hesitant about comming of for safety reasons.
Gram is an openly gay club owner in the city the twins live in. Garrett frequents the club more often than Kasey does but Gram has a crush on Kasey.
This is Kasey and Gram's story and it is a good one about find love and working to hold on to it even when it doesn't fit your 'ten year plan' to have it now.
Kasey and Gram find ways to be together without to many problems and Gram is an amazing partner who respects Kasey's need to not be out to the world.

A very good short story that delivers on many levels with some pretty hot sex scens

This book starts off a bit hesitantly--it's the first of a couple dealing with Kasey Johnson and his twin brother Garrett, but it heats up incredibly fast and in such a way as your initial reaction might be, "um, whaaaaaaat?" Kasey is a second-year professional basketball player obviously playing for the Phoenix Suns--he's a 6'5" blond god who is gay and has not come out, though his equally impressive brother, Garrett, a rising movie star, is openly gay. There are so many "this is absurd" twists that this book takes which are dealt with brilliantly by author Chase that you actually believe that this stuff can happen, especially today. You will not forget these characters, including Kasey's devoted seducer and eventually lover, Gram, and you will run right out and get its sequel, High Line, featuring Garrett, as soon as you finish this full court press.

Out of Bounds was a quick, fun read. Kasey Johnson is a professional basketball player, and his twin, Garrett, is a famous Hollywood actor. Both are gay, Garrett is out but Kasey isn't. As the story opens, Kasey is back from an out-of-town game, and Garrett wants him to go out to a local club with him - Garrett has just broken up with his long-term partner and wants to go have fun.

Ingram (Gram) Fletcher owns the Liverpool, the club near Kasey's home. Gram has had his eye on Kasey forever, but doesn't know if Kasey is straight or gay so he hasn't made a move. When Garrett and Kasey get to the club, one of their friends casually mentions to Gram that Kasey's in the back of the club and hints that Kasey might not rebuff advances from Gram. Then Garrett hints at the same thing. Deciding to take a chance, he heads over to see Kasey, and makes his move...and is rewarded with an enthusiastic response from Kasey.

Kasey and Gram decide to get together again, and begin dating. Since Kasey is "in" and Gram is "out", it does make things a bit difficult. Kasey can't afford a hint of of the truth getting out as the sports world is nowhere near as accepting as Hollywood is, and rumors already swirl about Kasey's sexuality due to his twin being openly gay.

When Kasey and Grant get together for a weekend in New Orleans, things don't go as planned and Kasey has to take a stand...

My thoughts: First of all, you know I'm a sucker for any book that takes place in part or whole in New Orleans :) I really did enjoy Out of Bounds though. Kasey was a sympathetic character (I seem to always sympathize with the ones in the closet, I guess, lol) and Gram was understanding of his situation.

I gave it a four only because it lagged in the dialogue but other than that it was great. I thought that the heady depiction of the craziness that happens at the beginning of a relationship was amazing! I definitely would read more from this author.

Warning: This review might contain what some people consider SPOILERS.

Rating: 4/10

PROS:
- The story is filled with glamorous surroundings and people who are fun to read about. Who's not interested, on at least some level, in famous twin brothers who make People's 50 Most Beautiful People list, frequent A-list clubs, and stay in the executive suites of fancy hotels?
- I liked Kasey's brother, Garrett, quite a bit. He's flashy and flamboyant with a "devil take it" attitude, yet he also knows when to be serious and is very protective of his twin.
- Gram has a pretty serious thing for Kasey from the start of the story, and I thought it was cute that although Gram thinks he has hidden his attraction so well, so many of his employees and friends know about it and encourage it.

CONS:
- I couldn't help rolling my eyes at some of the melodramatic--and unrealistic--things the characters do. Kasey, who's not out in public, wakes up on the couch of a night club and immediately twines his fingers with Gram's...then lets Gram kiss him? Gram starts calling Kasey "baby" after their first sexual encounter? Kasey gives an impassioned coming out speech to a whole slew of reporters not 20 minutes after having said he wasn't going to tell anyone outright?
- There's practically no buildup, emotional or physical, to the first sex scene, and because there's so little development between sex scenes, they left me cold. They're lovingly described in rather minute detail, but I found them a little clinical. They have a removed, play-by-play feel to them.
- Some of the dialogue is wooden-sounding and is used to awkwardly convey plot points that would have been better placed in the exposition.
