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.
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.
I loved the dynamics with the two protagonists, there was just the right amount of angst, but the sex and the love was great. I was really pleasantly surprised
