What did I find when I opened the book, well I have to say that I was confronted by what has to be one of the most beautifully romantic stories of opening your heart and mind to a love that you have yearned for so long.
Wade Truman is the quintessential good old southern boy, just about to leave college and hit it big in the NFL.
But Wade has just one problem with that and it is the fact that he is living a lie, he knows he is gay and is it is tearing him apart having to lie to everyone around him.
He has denied his feelings for so long, knowing that in the macho world of major league football, coming out would effectively be the end of his career before it has even really began and playing football is what he has lived for since being a kid.
But his resolution is to find his feet in the team and then come out in one year’s time, Oh, Wade I have my fingers crossed that you get your hope but I think you may find that the big bad world of commerce has something to say about it.
Wade is a reporter on the college paper and is given the opportunity to interview his all-time football hero, a legend of the game who having recently retired published his explosive memories and revealed to the world that he was gay.
He has managed to talk the editor of the paper into letting him take taking Heath Taylor along with him to take photographs of the day to accompany the interview. But it is not all a selfless act because Wade has an ulterior motive- He has a crush on Heath, one that unbeknown to him is completely reciprocated but Heath like everyone else believes Wade to be straight – life would be so much easier without all the subterfuge.Read more ›
Taking stock of his life he's promised himself twelve months of staying under the 'gay radar' in the sport, hopefully making his mark enough to make the sporting world accept him for who, not what sexual orientation, he is; determined that despite the possible fall out, he's coming out at the end of that period, and then he'll take the consequences whatever they might be. If the sport he loves won't accept him then that's it, their loss, but he wants that full year playing in the NFL and if staying in the closet for a year is the way to get it, then that's the plan he's sticking to. The only blip on the horizon though, is he doesn't think Heath, who is open and easy with his sexuality, would ever consider being his dirty little secret if they became lovers during that time; he wouldn't even consider putting anyone in that position...Hell, he doesn't think Heath would be even interested in him as they're different in many ways, so he's content to stay as they are.Read more ›

I really enjoyed Out In Time and found myself highlighting parts of this book so I wouldn't forget them. One of the parts that I highlighted was that Heath's mother writes "Shapeshifter Erotica" and that he said that his "mother basically writing porn between dragon shifters and unicorn shifters" I thought this was so funny because my own son tells me that I read housewife's porn. Which is basically what Heath's mother writes. (just a little side note). I was happy to see that Heath's family love him for who he is and that Wade still had to find himself and to let his family know that he isn't asexual but is actually homosexual.
I also loved Wade's "granny" he actually had come out to her when he was 17 and "granny" is quite a character. You will have to read that for yourself.
I would also like to say to Grey Cole that you are not a deviant! Well then maybe you are but, then there are so many others that are too and I would probably have to say I am too. I enjoyed this book, thank you!
This ARC was received for an honest review.
Oh Wade- the perfect Southern gentleman! He is so close to everything he has worked his whole life for- NFL, finishing college and starting his career. Then there is Heath, snarky Northerner, who could not be more different, yet just as driven and passionate. Together- holy hell, just scorchingly perfect.
As they open us to each over the long weekend together it is beautiful, and their fear and apprehension palpable and tender. As they build their relationship- so strongly grounded in a friendship- the strong ties they each have with their families come out to help them.
Love the dialogue and banter! Genuine and awkward and at times hilarious.
Absolutely adored this short novella, another from the mind of Grey Cole. Her character development well done, the story one that will stay with me.
Grey Cole has a way with words that completely engrosses you in the story. I felt like I was right there experiencing every emotion, every fear and every want these two experienced.
The story is cute but not overly sweet, IMO, and was pretty well written for a short story, with few editing errors. I liked that it explained why Heath is the way that he is, and also glad that the reason made sense (some authors give reasons that make absolutely no sense). I didn’t like that half of Heath & Wade really getting to know each other took place while they were attempting to be intimate, not before. I was kind of rolling my eyes, thinking, “Nude foreplay is not the time to discuss childhoods! Hurry up!” What would have been a good idea would’ve been to have an epilogue, or another chapter taking place a couple years later. We never get to see Wade coming out to his family & their reaction; Wade introducing Heath to his family; how Wade’s career goes before and after he comes out; whether Wade actually does come out at the time he said he would; and if Heath & Wade work out, and if so, how well. I also would’ve been interested in seeing where Heath’s career went, because 2 people with busy careers can add a whole new dynamic to a relationship. But overall it was worth the read.
