Chance aka Chancellor, 38, had been in the industry for more than a decade. He was burnt out and feeling rather lonely, due to his unsupportive parent and lack of social life. He had a serious and stoic no-nonsense persona and was respected by his peers. When he was task to look after a rookie, he was feeling less than welcoming because he rather be alone than have a travel buddy.
Devin, 26, is the rookie for the company who was excited for being in the big league. He is ambitious and motivated to work hard for his family. While Chance is all hard edges, Devin is sunshine and smiley faces. Sometimes he is even a little bratty just to annoy Chance.
Devin is a big fan of Chance since he was a kid and his hero worship had transform into a hopeful crush on his mentor. He don't even mind giving out some hint that he was definitely interested to start something between them. However, the ever serious Chance is adamant to rebuff any flirtation and not engage in anything personal with a co-worker. He is not even out from the closet yet.
Devin is relentless, it didn't take long for him to finally wear Chance down to give him a chance. I enjoyed the little bit of angst before they both finally decided to pursue the attraction between them. From then onward, their relationship is just swoon-worthy, full of warmth and tenderness. Who knew such gruff men who pummel each other for a living can be so sweet and adorable together. And the part that I find the hottest is not even the actual sex scene, it was the scene whereby Devin tried to touch Chance for the first time. It was pure eroticism that had my toes curling.
In a world whereby testosterone is in overload, will Chance and Devin ever stood a chance if they want to have a career within?
I used to be quite a fan of pro-wrestling. I still remember watching WWF on TV with my grandpa when I was in elementary. He will be cussing at the TV, sometimes boo-ing or cheering. I swore that they were fighting for real. Only when I reached senior high did I realized that I've been duped. So reading about this book really brought back some fond memories. I love reading about the behind the scenes action that took place in this book. Learning the lingo and their management. Is quite fascinating and eye opening at the same time.
The tone of the book is more sedate, just like Chance's personality. I'm hooked with the writing style right from the beginning. Despite the plot pacing veered towards a slower pace, I'm not bothered at all. The author has a way of building her character that make me love them right from the start.
Overall, I love this story and definitely became a total fan of this author. I might even start watching wrestling again. I can't wait for the next installment of this series. Give me more sexy wrestlers.
Amidst all those muscled and heavy-built men, Devin and Chance find each other. Chance is a veteran in the sports, 38 years old, and having won everything there is to win. 26-year-old Devin is the rookie on the tour, and he is matched with his crush Chance to be mentored by him, to show him the ropes. His hero-worship soon turns into a full-on attraction. Chance is not so sure. Well, he is, but he is afraid of the possible repercussions for his career, being outed. He is not really playing hard to get, but he tries to keep his distance, but Devin keeps wrestling under his skin and into his heart. The gruff, harsh-looking Chancellor has no chance against the sunny, happy-go-lucky Devin. Chance might be showing Devin the ropes in the ring, but it is Devin who shows the older man how much brighter your life will be when you open your heart.
I loved Devin and Chance. They are good together. Their chemistry is palpable, but also their sweetness together. They have each other’s back. I mean big-time when some not so nice bystanders get into their faces in a nasty way. And there is lovely for you.
I also liked the secondary characters who are interesting in their own rights, and I feel some new stories looming. At least, I hope so because I would love to read more about Tré and Brandon for instance.
Chance and Devin made a good team in their professional and in their private lives. They fit together in both like a well choreographed dance. It made me happy that they found their perfect match with one another.
