This story follows Zach (Nate's twin brother from Homerun book 6) and Griffin. These two were together in college and Zach insisting their relationship stay secret due to his potential professional football career lead to Griffin walking away.
Zach is now a professional football player and a reality TV show will be filming the team in their pre Season training. Griffin happens to be one of the cameramen and assigned to Zach to follow him around at all times filming him in his every day life as well as at training.
Initially Zach is angry towards Griffin re entering his life and is suspicious of his motives. He insists they will not be getting back together or even really interacting other than what they've got to do for the show. Then seemingly in the next sentence they are both all in, getting back together and boyfriends again. It was all very clunky and odd.
I felt no real heat or chemistry between these two and at times just found it awkward and frustrating to read. They were both quite whiny and made dramas out of very little throughout. There were quite a few secondary characters in this book which I did feel added to the story. Lincoln appeared randomly about half way through then had a very big role in the second half of this book which again was just written quite oddly.
I liked that this was a sports romance but not overloaded with technical terminology and play time and in fact as this was mainly based around pre season there wasn't really any football references.Read more ›
In this we find out more about Zach, twin brother of Nate who was the subject of the last book. Like his brother, Zach is gay but unlike Nate, he's in the closet.
Because of this, the love of his college days, Griffin, left him because he didn't want to come between Zach and his professional football career.
This is a second chances romance, as Griffin ends up being one of the cameramen on a behind the scenes reality show which is following the team in the pre-season training.
There's the odd editing mistakes, as has been the case throughout this author's work, Zach is called Griffin in one sentence but thankfully it's an isolated error and not one which fully pulls you out of the story.
I'm now looking forward to finding out about Nixon and Lincoln's past and seeing if they're going to finally make it. Good start to this new series of books and the usual great cover I've come to expect.
I also felt at times this story turned slightly into a debate about being gay and a professional football player. As well as whether its right or wrong that labels are applied to anyone who happens to be out and play a sport.
That being said there were still many things I did enjoy and I do think it was a good start to this new series. I was also intrigued by Nixon and Lincoln who both played a role supporting Zach as he navigated his tentative relationship with Griffin. The stress of training camp and the filming of the documentary that is seeking to expose his sexual orientation. And I will certainly checking out their story when its released. I would also happily recommend this story to others especially if you are a fan of the Home Run Series.
Oooh - Sloan Johnson and a new sport! American football is as unfathomable to me as baseball but the men are still pretty, emotionally needy and a bit sweaty so it’s all good. The sport may be new but Zach, the main character, is the brother of Nate in the last Homeruns book. In this story, Zach is unexpectedly reunited with Griffin, the man he loved and lost in college. Zach may have one last chance to own up to his sexuality and his feelings for Griffin, but he also only has one chance to make it in the NFL.
I really loved this story. Themes from the Homeruns books are back as Zach struggles with the pressure to remain closeted as a professional sportsman. There are new ideas here - Griffin works for a company that is filming Zach’s team for a reality show and I really liked the way the author questions the ethics of manipulating lives in pursuit of reality TV show ratings.
Zach and Griffin are sexy together. I love the second chance element of this romance and the complex history between these two.
Zach’s teammates are wonderful and I’m hoping the new series title means that we’ll see more of these men. As always, Sloan Johnson has written a wonderful sports romance and I think the quality of her writing is getting better with every new book. This is an easy reading pleasure.
