Editorial Reviews


4 HEARTS! "...First off - the world of professional wrestling is something I am familiar with, having a son who was totally engrossed in the whole thing.I loved reading this story about the story lines and how they come about...Iliked the story very much and I thought the ending was perfect. He may wrestle in front of millions and be a big, bad man, but meeting the family has him panicking. Adorable." - Lucy, Hearts On Fire Reviews

"...Very enjoyable romance of an established couple at a crossroads. The wrestling plot was interesting for this non-wrestling fan as well... Josh and Ev's tension felt very real and organic. I love how the story was told, with both Josh and Ev remembering how they met, feel in love, and started building a life together...I really enjoyed this unique romance set in the exotic (to me!)world of pro-wrestling and recommend it to MM readers." - J9, The BookVixen

"...the setting was interesting and unique. There is a lot of sports action,wrestling matches, and jargon used to round out the experience...I did enjoy the premise of the story of a professional athlete dealing with coming out and Everett's struggles are realistic...the writing is well done...a nice choice for a look into the world of entertainment wrestling with an athlete struggling to come to terms with his identity and trying to have a relationship with another man in the midst of it all." - Michelle, Joyfully Jay M/M RomanceReviews & More

4 STARS! "...Well written, with interesting characters, it was a fun,romantic story with a bit of angst along the way, but not too much. It is a romance after all, not a tragedy." - Annette Gisby, Zipper Rippers

TOP PICK!...4.5 STARS! "...well written with an interesting plot. The ending is set in a way that leaves you with hope for Josh and Everett that while the road might not be easy they will tackle it together. I hope there is a sequel to see how Josh and Everett adjust to life now that everyone knows about them. Overall, I loved this book." - VRainey, Night Owl Reviews

5 HEARTS! "...I love the tone of how the book starts...The best part is the emotionally charged storyline just continues throughout the book and doesn't just stop...This isn't your average athlete-coming-out story and the use of wrestling probably helps that excellent read. Highly recommended." -Prime, MM Good Book Reviews

"...I think the idea of making Ev a professional wrestler was great because it's a career a lot of people don't associate with a gay man. It shows that Ev is a complete person, regardless of his sexuality and his career. There are plenty of sexual moments, some more graphic than others, throughout the book.They work within the overall story...I would definitely check out more books by this author..." - Lauren, Shooting Stars Mag

"...This story educated me about the behind-the-scenes realities of professional wrestling and I found it incredibly interesting. I loved Everett who is one of the good guys. His partner, Vinnie, knows about he's gay and isn't concerned in the least. In fact, some of the funnier moments are when he probes Everett for details about the m/m sexual experience. The wrestling scenes were mesmerizing on the page!...The book packs an emotional punch for such a short novel and I was completely drawn in...I highly recommend it..." - Jonetta, The BookNympho

From the Author

Everett finished his beer and gazed around the living room. It was comforting to have someone to talk to, instead of constantly keeping everything bottled up inside. It had been years since he'd been alone with a guy, and he liked Josh, liked him a lot. But he was worried. What if something went wrong? What if Josh told someone?
Josh gave his shoulder a little shove. "Come on, out with it, Muscles. Either you really love staring at my bookcase, or you're too shy to face me. I know you're thinking about something behind those beautiful blue eyes."
"I... nah..."
"What? Anything. Say it."
He sneaked a glance at Josh out ofthe corner of his eye. "I was wondering what it would feel like to"--he bowed his head--"kiss you."
"Why don't we find out?" Josh took Ev's empty beer bottle and set it down on the marble end table. "Come here."
He let Josh draw him into his arms.Ev closed his eyes and waited, his heart hammering out of control.

A second later, Josh's lips gently pressed against his. Ev gasped and kissed him back gingerly. Josh increased the pressure, and their mouths moved in unison. The scent of Josh's spicy vanilla cologne washed over him and he lost himself in the tender embrace. Josh's beard grazed his cheek, sending an electric tingle racing up his spine. God, this was good.

He clutched Josh tighter, holding onto him for dear life, not daring to let go. Josh groaned and slid his tongue into his mouth. An adrenaline rush of excitement flooded through him.
Dear God, he wasn't supposed to have these kinds of feelings, this hunger, for another man, but it felt right. The wet heat of Josh's tongue swirling around his drove him into a frenzy, and he kissed Josh deeper, praying this would never end.
After a few minutes, Josh eased away. "You are amazing. That was hot."
Ev smiled. "It's been so long. I forgot how good this could be. I feel safe with you. I really do."
Josh rested his head on Ev's chest."You should, because you are. And don't worry, we'll take this slow. You set the pace, Muscles. Whatever you're comfortable with works for me."
