Another story killer was Levi not only being gay, but almost full on diva/drag queen, and being a club celebrity but no one ever recognized him when his pic was splashed in the tabloids. Really? He wore glitter and hair dye, not armor and hockey masks. And yes, Levi was a bit of an emotional rollercoaster, but in the end you can kind of understand why. I didn't have too much of a problem with Tracy. But how could he have just met and slept with Levi (AKA Livy) the previous year and not have that crazy tattoo jar his memory immediately? That was unbelievable. The storyline with the court case was dashed through too quickly, and honestly could've been left out. But not only was it left in, but Levi was considering setting up a college fund for a girl who nearly ruined his whole life? WTF?!?! NO! This book gives a HEA for Tracy and Levi's relationship, for which I'm glad, but if I hadn't bought Books 2 & 3 simultaneously just off the strength of Book 1, I would not be continuing this series after this major letdown. Oh well, maybe Book 3 will explain why Jude is such an a****le.
The story is not terribly original though well-written. I just never cared for either character. I found Tracy arrogant, quick to anger and condescending. Levi is needy, passive and self-pitying. I found I had to suspend belief on several occassions in this book. Levi, the Superbowl winning QB can put on a little glitter and a kilt and hit a popular gar bar and not be recognized? I happen to know from experience that glitter is not a very good mask. He has very spectacular sex in public, takes taxis to and from the gay bar with tricks and that information is not all over town in 60 seconds??? Levi lives in a townhome made to look like a Barbie Dream House and none of his fellow football players ever noticed? Tracy, who lusted after Levi from their first tackle on rival football teams at age 16 didn't recognize the object of his affection in bar a few years later? Come on!
An okay read, but not on my top list.
Oh and thanks soooooooooo much for that teaser chapter. I can now patiently wait for the next one.. (yeah right.. Patient my Bu##). Oh and whoever is reading this review, do yourself a favour and grab the bloody book and read it...
Thank you Mercy for feeding my love for all things football and M/M, putting them together and then turning it into a series! Three books will certainly not be enough, I will want more!
Another winner from the fascinating mind of Mercy Celeste, you cannot go wrong with this author. The teaser chapter at the end was a genius touch I cannot wait now for the next one. So get to it people buy buy buy, then read read read.
Tracy and Levi both have baggage, but when the two meet up at the start of the story, Levi is at one of his lowest points. His career is suddenly over, he is back in his hometown drowning his sorrows and living in a trailer behind his little brother's mansion. I really enjoyed watching Levi's character develop and the way his personality emerges towards the end was unexpected. He is absolutely my favorite character in the story at this point. Levi and Tracy have good chemistry and I enjoyed Tracy getting all protective over his man.
Bo and Dylan's story is also continuing, with some more light shed on what went on after Bo received the KIA notification in the first book. I know some people did not like that part of the storyline, but I'm not turned off of stories that have that issue and found it was portrayed in a believable manner.
There is so much craziness going on with Tracy and Levi, but that is one of the reasons I enjoy Mercy Celeste's stories. This series has sucked me in and I immediately jumped in to the next book.
