    Before I begin my review of "Double Full", I'd like to state three things: 1) This was a first time read for me from this author.

Shout out to D Kristin, it was fun. 2) I'm rating it somewhere between 3-4 stars but I'll just go with 3.5. 3)When I was babysat as a child, the programs of choice usually were soap operas.

I have a list of authors I need to get to that keeps growing, so I'm happy I was able to finally cross her off with this buddy read. Shout out to D Kristin, it was fun. 2) I'm rating it somewhere between 3-4 stars but I'll just go with 3.5. 3)When I was babysat as a child, the programs of choice usually were soap operas. So I have an affinity for them...go figure. So I hereby title my review (and briefly the book), "The Bold and the Double Full". Cue the soap opera orchestra, Maestro. (I swear I could hear the music interludes at the end of each chapter *cough*episode*cough*) When reading "Double Full" during the first 20%, it starts off with a bang and a lot of honeyed sugar. And I'll admit I was drowning but then something happened. I forgot I can't take this story too seriously. I forgot to flip the switch. Silly me. What switch you ask? The switch that suspends reality, of course. This story is entertainment. Anytime I forgot that I just had to remember to: Jace and Colt start off with a bang as an out & proud cheerleader and a closeted college football player on the verge of turning pro-NFL. I kind of wished I could have rewound the beginning scene to maybe before the men met, just a little. Because I probably might have liked Colt more. I don't hate Colt but I'm not too keen on him either. He made snap declarations and didn't follow through all the time. He's a flip-flopper. Do I believe he loved Jace? Sure. But a lot of his issues could have been solved a lot sooner if he had just manned up earlier. And he does but it was so late in the game and he just-- Colt is handsome! (See I flipped the switch) Jace...Jace just reminds me of a girlfriend where you see she's making mistakes and they ask you "Am I wrong?" and you just lie and tell them "Nope. Everything is perfect." But you know...she's just making mistakes. But I loved Jace. I think he let Colt back in too quickly. Ten years and all of the pain and damage is ignored so quickly-- Jace is handsome, caring and smart! He's a cheer superstar! The story is entertainment as I stated before. Don't take it too seriously and it's palatable. If The Bold and Double Full was on television, I'd totally watch!! I would have to see what more shenanigans were cooked up and evil schemes foiled. The evil characters were Colt's homophobic father (his rants were kind of lame and juvenile) and Colt's female fiancee (she was built up as ranting meth whore and she disappears too easily, IMO). My biggest concern for the Bold and the Double Full? It's not the typos or misuse of certain words (I'm not the grammar police, trust me) or editing...it's the pacing. It meanders at times, repeats the same points over and over. Some scenes weren't as effective because it went off tangent to subjects that had nothing to do with the plot. I can even roll with plot lines going out far as long as they can be tied into main story line somehow. But this-- The story ends with a cliffhanger of sorts, a suspenseful-ish crime and possible lead in Mitch, US Marshal. He makes snap judgments and declarations as well-- Entertaining read, with steamy sex, some popular themes- 'hero stalks the one they love'/ 'loved you for years' (faves of mine) and a lot of honeyed, vanilla love. Drip. Favorite part of the book? The cover. Who would get the most enjoyment from the Bold and the Double Full? Those who are probably new to the MM romance scene, those who love Harlequin-esque romances (this pretty much read like one set in modern day), readers who like a LOT of drama, honeyed sugar and soap operas. This book is very popular, so if you're on the fence check out all of the reviews and make your decision.

So the story begins with our main characters, Colton Michaels and Jace Montgomery, getting hot and heavy inside an empty lockeroom (what a way to start the story right?) Apparently, this was their first time together but get this - they did it bareback... (Yeah, I know right?) A few days after their first interlude, Colt was so taken with Jace that he arranged a Hawaiian getaway for both of them. Spending five days on a tropical Island made them realize their love for each other. Unfortunately, Colt's homophobic father found out about it and threatened to kill Jace if Colt doesn't end their relationship. (Of course being just halfway through the book, you can guess what Colt's decision was) Ten years later, we find Colt waking up from a drunken four-way with his fiance (Maryia), a girl named Helen and his driver Clint. Even Colt's dad made an appearance getting off while watching his future daughter-in-law making out with her friend Helen! Meanwhile, Jace woke up from his own one night stand with a guy he kept mentally referring to as "Bad Breath:" "Bad breath came up behind him, evidently not taking the hint, and wrapped an arm around him, kissing his back...." "Bad breath wasn’t bad looking; probably younger, maybe in his early twenties,..." "Bad breath had his hands on his hips and a pout on his lips..." The guy never uttered another sound, but the front door of his condo slammed shut. A strong indication that bad breath left angry... (I just felt bad for the guy for being bullied.) Seemingly, after ten years of misery at the hands of his manipulative father, Colt finally had enough and decided to pursue Jace. The two lovers soon reunite in (you guessed it) Hawaii where they re-ignite the flames of passion and declare their love for each other. "Now, while lifting his finger to move a piece of hair from Jace’s face, Colt again experienced the rush of those deep feelings of everlasting love." (You could tell the story went downhill at this stage along with the testosterone levels of the MCs) Things were going well for the two so...cue conflict. Colt suffers an accident that puts his football career in danger. Turns out the accident was a plot meant for Jace so they hired an Investigator to find out who was behind it. While Colt was recovering, he and Jace realized that life is too short so they decided to get married and live happily ever after! (As for the mastermind behind the accident? Well, you could pretty much guess who it is. But just so you know, the culprit never got jailed because they couldn't find any evidence.) I was like... To sum it up, Colton's dad was the typical homophobic father who beat his son without remorse for being gay; Maryia was the standard evil bitch of a girlfriend who stood in the way of the MCs; Colton and Jace's lines were filled with flowery words and overly sweet terms of endearment that made me wince more than once; And finally, the plot was kind of predictable and I'm not even sure if the culprit behind the accident was intentionally left roaming free or if the author plans to resolve this problem on a second book. All in all, the story was just too stereotypical for my enjoyment. Will this change in book two? Well, I'm less inclined to pick up the second installment so I may never get to find out.

They were crushing hard on one another for years before Colt finally approached Jace. It was the best decision he ever made. Then they spent five days making love and promises. My heart swelled so big for these two. Then Colts dad happened. Everything was ruined. All the promises they made ruined and for the next ten years they were both miserable. I loathed Colts dad. That was one evil man. When Colt finally decides to stop hiding who he is and man up, I was so happy. The stress of thinking that he was going to marry that gold digger infuriated me. I really did like Colt. He only wanted to protect Jace but after so many years of hiding who he was and now being a thirty year old man, it was time to stop wallowing in guilt and go get your man. Jace was very likable. Colt broke his heart and over the years Jace held onto to that one special week they shared. Will Jace forgive the only man that he ever loved and give him another chance? Who knows! There was some drama that I will not get into because I don't want to spoil it. Now onto book two because I am ready for U.S. Marshall Mitch. I am pretty sure that he is going to be yummy!!

I do this thing each March where I read 100% MM for the entire month... At The Smutsonian we call the event 'MM March' because we're clever... Anyway, we took a poll of our followers and asked which MM titles we've skipped over. This series was the overwhelming winner. By leaps, bounds, and 'I can't believe you haven't read this; what's wrong with you' comments... Let's start with the 'Why I haven't read this' question - Even though I read and review over two-hundred books each year, my TBR is still out of control. I can't read everything. This book wasn't even near the top of my TBR, but I give in to book-related peer pressure and there was definitely a lot of hype about the series. Why didn't I pick the book up when it was a new release? Easy. I hate the blurb. Still do. I firmly believe in the power of the blurb. The description of your book sets the tone, and needs to hook your reader. I was soooo not impressed with the sport-metaphor BS happening in this book's blurb. A book with a badly written blurb is like a model with a Drivers License photo for a headshot. That bitch isn't getting invited onto the runway, and that book isn't going to land on my Kindle. Ok... Grievances aired - Mostly - Let's move on... I went into this book expecting something fluffy - a second chance romance with a side of homophobic football players and a ton of sex scenes... I wasn't too far off... Except for the fluffy part. This book layered on the angst like crazy. It actually felt a bit depressing at times... This story began with the two MCs in college. Even though the vast majority of the story takes place while the characters are in their 30s, I don't feel like this book ever managed to shake off that overly-dramatized NA feel... If you can prepare yourself for an emotional read, If you're not looking for too much depth in your characters, If you enjoy soap-opera level drama, Yeah, this book is for you... The Unofficial Breakdown: 30% - College Romance and obligatory split. 20% - Present day pining for each other 50% - Reconciliation and fallout Colton "Colt" Michaels His life had become nothing more than a drug and alcohol induced blur, with moments of playing football mixed in between. I can't say for sure if I ever really liked this character. I definitely felt sorry for him, and was happy to see him get his shit together... But yeah, can't say I completely understand Jace's infatuation with Colt. Not after he behaved so horribly and broke his heart. Colt started this story as the golden-boy college quarterback who corners the handsome male cheerleader in the locker-room for a scene strait from a porno... Seriously, this book started with a dick in the ass... Impressive... Anywho, their little tryst began during Spring Break, senior year of college. Colt has more money than sense, so he invites Jace to join him for a romantic Hawaiian getaway. Apparently the jock has had his entire college career to secretly fall for Jace, and he spends their vacation making sure the object of his affection receives the full force of his sweet/sexy romantic attentions... All goes well (wall to wall deliciously sexy) but reality comes crashing down almost as soon as the boys come back to school. I don't think it's spoilery for me to tell you that Colt's homophobic abusive asshole father and douche-bag money-grubbing agent made some threats significant enough to make Colt walk away from Jace forever. Jace Montgomery That day on the beach in Kauai, Jace willingly gave his heart and soul over to Colt; they were no longer his. Jace was a character I could easily sympathize with. He was weary of Colt's over-excited attentions while in college, and knew he would be hard-pressed to be in a secret relationship. Jace never hid his sexuality from the world for even a second, so trying to reconcile his feelings for Colt with the reality of their situation was difficult. Jace started this story as the gay male-cheerleader perfectly comfortable in his own skin. Sure, he has a crush on the god-like quarterback, but so does the rest of the school. Jace knows it's a bad idea to fall for a closeted jock, but a private Hawaiian vacation for two will melt anyone's resolve. Jace and Colt start planning out their 'Happily Ever After' during those five days of island bliss. They fell in love and the future was oh-so-bright. Heres Where it gets tricky... They weren't back home for a full twenty-four hours before Colt walked away. No explanation. No 'Good bye'. Not a word, not a text, no note, nothing. Even when Jace goes looking for Colt and finds him in a bar with his football buddies (who beat up Jace for 'being a fag' before literally throwing him out on his ass) Colt doesn't say a word. Silence. For. Ten. Years. I get the infatuation with the ol' closeted jock falling in love with the out-and-proud male cheerleader thing... But I simply can't believe that two men could fall so deeply in love over FIVE DAYS together, that they would willingly sabotage every personal relationship for the next TEN YEARS. No amount of suspension of disbelief could make me reconcile that idea... If they had been apart for TWO years, I think the entire story would have sat better with me. As it stands, however, the absurd level emotional ineptitude displayed by these characters... for a freakin' DECADE? That's ridiculous. These characters deserve each other, because there is no way either could exist in a happy healthy relationship... They couldn't even live a happy healthy life alone. So these two broken men have managed to become super successful leaders in their respective fiends... I mean, they're famous millionaires but emotionally crippled... so... It was hard to read the middle section of the book where Colt and Jace were withering away... Everything seemed so helpless, but we KNEW they were going to get back together! That's the light at the end of the dark tunnel, right? So why did their reunion seem so infuriatingly anticlimactic? Seriously Jace, Colt walked away from you with out a single word. No explanation. You haven't sen him in ten years. He shows up on your doorstep on his mother-fucking wedding day (because let's be as dramatic as possible, right?) and what do you do? Fuck him. And that brings us to about the 50% point. I won't say more because of spoilers, but know that Cole and Jace can't hide behind youth any longer. They're both sport celebrities, so there's no hiding, period. Look, this book had it's high points and low points, but it was absolute over-dramatic nonsense from beginning to end. You have to start reading this book while heavily medicated or solely interested in superficial soap-opera level drama to enjoy this book... If one of the characters wound up with amnesia or an evil twin, I would not have been surprised. I think I know where the next book is going - pretty sure it shifts focus to US Marshall Mitch Knox (who gets a sizable cameo in the last 30-40% of this book) and I think I could get behind his story much easier than this one. The writing wasn't bad, but the timeline and thick layer of angst simply wasn't for me. I'll let you decide for yourself if it's your cup of MM tea...

    This was just... No. Not for me. This is not going to be so much a review, as it's going to be a rant. There will likely be spoilers, so if you have any interest in reading this book, and don't want things spoiled, look away now. Ok, so this book starts out with a fairly HOT as fuck sex scene between Colt and Jace in the locker room at their university. Colt is a football player, about to go pro, and Jace is a cheerleader. Colt is still deeply closeted, which brings me to my first WTF of this boo This was just... No. Not for me. This is not going to be so much a review, as it's going to be a rant.

Ok, so this book starts out with a fairly HOT as fuck sex scene between Colt and Jace in the locker room at their university. Colt is a football player, about to go pro, and Jace is a cheerleader. Colt is still deeply closeted, which brings me to my first WTF of this book- closeted guy chooses his first time with the guy he stalks loves, in a locker room, where anyone can come in? So super hot sex, which Jace figures will be a one time thing. Only he later finds out that Colt has been in love with him since he first saw him freshman year. And that Colt has been watching him. And that he knows pretty much everything about him. Creepy much? Apparently not to Jace. Cut to a 5 day fuckfest in Hawaii, complete with declarations of love and overall teenage girl behavior, followed by angry homophobic to the max dad beating the shit out of Colt and forcing him to dump Jace. And then Jace beat up himself, when he tries to find out what's up with Colt, while Colt watches, and does nothing. (But he cries inside, so it's ok!) Yes, that's right, TWO gay bashings in a single chapter! (maybe a chapter and a half!) Cut to 10 years later, and Jace is running his own cheerleading gym, doing ok for himself, only he's still mooning over his time with Colt(FIVE freaking days, and he's still not over it, 10 years later), and Colt is living the high life, only he hates his life. He's spent the last 10 years drunk (which apparently effected his gameplay not at all!), and now he finds himself engaged to this horrible, AWFUL woman, once again, to protect Jace. Colt can't actually put on his big boy pants and go after what he wants, he lets everyone around him push him around. Oh, and another WTF! Maryia, Colt's Russian supermodel bitch on wheels of a girlfriend is apparently a methhead, and I have to wonder, has the author never seen what meth does to a person? No way, after at least a year of meth use, would this woman be any sort of model, super or otherwise. Your teeth fall out, your skin is full of sores, and your hair is limp and ugly. I could buy the woman being a coke whore, even a heroin junkie, but meth? Nope, not the way it's written. Anyways! Colt finally decides enough and leaves the day of his wedding, and goes after Jace. Who pretty much freaking forgives him then and there! Sure, he's wary, and sure, there's some more angst, but he forgives Colt WAY too easily, no real groveling at all! Then we have car crashes and cut brake lines, and a lost career, but they end things together. But the author never even says who cut the brake lines and caused the crash! That's left as a dangling sequel bait, to get you to read the next book! The writing on this wasn't bad, it was actually quite engaging, if you ignore the incorrect words (sorted for sordid? seriously?), and how often things get repeated! "I've been in love with you for years Jace, I know what you like." "How did you know that, Colt?" "I told you, I've been watching you for years!" I can't remember how many times some variation of this was used, but it was a lot. I usually like angst, I'm a soap fan and everything, but this one was just too much for me. Gay bashings and homophobic fathers and friends, and extremely bitchy girlfriends, and instalove, and it all just became too much for me.

I seriously want to lick those abs. But that's beside the point. Where was I? Oh, yeah. There were a few issues: This has a very distinct daytime soap feel to it. The Insta Love is soooo Insta, it will seriously give you whiplash if you're not careful (this is especially true when the two guys meet again in the present, and there's basically no discussion of past hurts, just, wow, I still love you; fuck me now). There was a lot of internal monologuing of emotions that felt a little tedious and repetitive. Colt's dad was so bad and creepy, that he was practically Voldemort (in other words, the very image of a True Villain), and the whole thing with Colt's nasty fiancee was overdone, and not believable (particularly since the issue is basically dropped a chapter into the second part of the book). (view spoiler)[I'm still not sure how a 32-year-old NFL quarterback allowed his father to control him and take his money for a decade even as said father essentially threatened his life and the life of his lover? (hide spoiler)] Also, do cheerleading coaches make that much money? (view spoiler)[Like enough to buy a house in Hawaii? (hide spoiler)] I get that Jace owed his own business, and cheerleading is huge in Texas, and he saved a lot, but still. Finally, the mystery/twist at the end wasn't necessary. The story didn't need any more angst. And if the twist had to be there, well, the who-done-it should have been the obvious villain. While I really liked Mitch and wouldn't mind reading his story, the twist was a bit of a red herring and felt contrived, a way to set Mitch up as an MC for the next book in the series vs. actually contributing to the plot of this book.

    This was quite a good read. Thanks for the loan, Amy. 3.5 stars Never knew there were male cheerleaders before reading this. Thought Colt came across as a bit immature at times. Sex scenes were hot and steamy. This was quite a good read. Thanks for the loan, Amy. 3.5 stars Never knew there were male cheerleaders before reading this.

    5 amazing stars!!!! I spent the last few nights with Jace and Colt and let me say, these two drew me in and held me tight! I am a huge fan of m/m and this book seemlessly portrayed the love these two felt for one another and the unfortunate (but real) life events that sometimes get in the way of love. I adored the relationship between these two men and the fact that we were allowed to see the journey from ten years prior as well as current day. I'm looking forward to the next book in this series 5 amazing stars!!!! I spent the last few nights with Jace and Colt and let me say, these two drew me in and held me tight!

    HIGHLY RECOMMEND!! I was completely hooked to the story right from the start. I will admit it is the first book of Kindle Alexander’s books which I have read but it certainly will not be the last. I already plan on reading The Current Between Us which has come highly recommended by some of my m/m booklover friends and I cannot wait. As a lover of m/m books I do tend to jump up and down at the prospect of reading more gay romance books. This one was definitely worth it as I found myself HIGHLY RECOMMEND!! I was completely hooked to the story right from the start. I will admit it is the first book of Kindle Alexander’s books which I have read but it certainly will not be the last. I already plan on reading The Current Between Us which has come highly recommended by some of my m/m booklover friends and I cannot wait. As a lover of m/m books I do tend to jump up and down at the prospect of reading more gay romance books. This one was definitely worth it as I found myself engaged and gripped fully by the story, characters and style of writing. Being that fully engrossed in the lives of Colt and Jace enabled me as a reader to feel the roller coaster of emotions they must have felt going through the tests in their relationship together. I found myself wincing and screaming internally when things went bad and smiling and feeling giddy when things were going great. Kindle Alexander has an easy and engaging writing style which I enjoyed very much. I personally am not one for flowery lovey dovey language and feel it is not necessary in order to be enticed into the characters world, which is shown perfectly in this book. I will not lie to you, I LOVE a book which is steamy and sexy and Double Full hits you within the first few pages with a hot scene which had me hooked completely- YES call me shallow I don’t care! You like what you like and I like sex hahahahaha especially rough, wild and amazingly delicious sex! Prejudice and an anti gay theme runs throughout the storyline. At times it is hard to read as you like to think (or I like to think) that this sort of deep routed hatred doesn’t exist, yet sadly it does. Kindle wrote the story in a way which spoke to me of the prejudices I see even in my own family regarding sexual orientation. Sadly my family would no doubt react the same way family members reacted in this story if I was to speak up about being attracted to people of the same sex. I think that is why this story engaged me so personally, as everybody has the right to equality and nobody has the right to prevent that or make others feel inadequate as a result. Sorry I will get off my equalities soap box now hahahahaha! My emotions towards Colt and Jace COLT There were times when I felt deep sympathy for Colt and then the next minute I wanted to shake him hard and tell him to open his eyes up and see how selfish he was being! Yet I could understand his reasons for doing what he does and so in the end my sympathy outweighed the frustration I felt. Colt has a power hungry father who puts his own dreams and aspirations above Colt’s. He was certainly a character I instantly disliked and my opinion never changed throughout the whole story. JACE I found Jace to be the one putting out all the time, in an emotional way. Colt was very good at the outward gestures yet I personally didn’t think he showed it in a deeply emotional way, compared to Jace. I know some people may disagree with me and that’s fine as this is just my take on the situation as I read the story. Yet again even with Jace I found myself getting frustrated with his abundance of trust especially on one occasion where I didn’t feel Colt deserved it! No spoilers from me, sorry! SECONDARY CHARACTERS I loved Dr Knox he was so supportive towards Colt and Jace in their time of need. His son Mitch was so AMAZINGLY HOTTTT! I loved him. I just hope and pray he is the main character in the next book FULL DISCLOSURE <3 <3 which I will be dying to read when it is released TO CONCLUDE I highly recommend it to all m/m readers if you have yet to read it. If you haven't yet read it WHY NOT????? Go buy it ASAP!! I hope you love it as much as I did and like I said earlier I have had other stories of Kindle Alexander’s recommended very highly to me so they are obviously as good as this one :) Arc copy received in exchange for an honest review which will be part of a book blog tour which begins 18th October at the Confessions of 2 book lovers blog

The guys look great, are hot, shapely, sexy and usually successful. One is a celebrity (here from sport), they are in their thirties and with a history of many night quickies. They carry old disappointments, one is still in the closet and they both want nothing more than to get that greatest happiness. Many good ingredients for an entertaining M/M romance. So again this time. The collage football hero, Colton Michaels, get some wonderful dreamy days during his last school holiday with the sexy guy in the team's cheerleaders, Jace Montgomery. The blond beautiful guy he had long been fond of and dreamed about. With a promising NFL football career in sight and a very tough dad his dream of a relationship and a romance with Jace takes a quick end. A very tough and bitter end. Ten years later and Colton is still thinking about his first and only big love, the man he never got the chance to keep. Is it too late or is there still a chance? “I love you, Jace. I always have, and through all my mistakes, I wanted you to know I've never said that to anyone else. Only you.” Maybe I snorted and rolled my eyes now and then - but I do that quite often when I read romances. Because sometimes it's a bit silly and unrealistic. But I do like that too. What is better than when the heart knot tightly in pain, a few drops of tears, or when you hear the grandiose romantic violins, the long awaited three words and see a grand HEA? I really loved these characters and turned with curiosity every page. Colt and Jace were so worth a little love-happiness, and to finally get together. I must admit that I fell for this slightly sentimental but very sweet story. But sometimes I was annoyed too. Adult men... who let others control their lives... - what?!? But I loved that through all the years they continued to pine for each other at distance. A little predictable perhaps but there were some real surprises too. Here was both a horrible father, a terrible girlfriend, homophobia and a lot of drama. "Second chance romances" are often those that make me sob. I love the feeling that there are always a remaining hope. And I rejoice when the MC's reunion finally happening ~ it's always so heartbreakingly beautiful. Maybe not top class but certainly a romantic and enjoyable novel. In the end, there were some hints about the next book and one of the guys in that one. Looking forward to reading it. I LIKE - wonderfully steamy and sweet sentimental.

Colt is the all-star quarterback, living deep in the closet. Jace is a cheerleader, who is out and proud of who he is. You couldn’t help but fall in love with him. A chance encounter in the locker room brings them together and we find out that Colt has been smitten with Jace since the first time he saw him. Colt is afraid that if he doesn’t finally make a move, they will both graduate and he’ll never know what could have been. And thus begins their whirlwind romance. Colt takes Jace along on a Hawaiian getaway for Spring Break and life is perfect in their little bubble, isolated from the rest of the world. But when Colt’s dad (who is also manager) gets wind of this, and they return to school, all hell breaks lose. I had a hard time reading this part. My heart was breaking for Jace. Fast forward 10 years and we re-join the guys as Colt is about to marry a Russian supermodel. Jace owns a very successful cheerleading gym, but has never gotten over Colt. This story is beautifully written. I felt so connected with the characters, I devoured this book – could not put it down. This is my first Kindle Alexander book, but I plan to go back and read the others. I am definitely a fan of her work :)

    2.75 stars. I really want to like Kindle Alexander's books. They are soap operas. They are trashy. They are supposed to be good old-fashioned fun. You're supposed to sink into them and just forget the world for awhile, and to a small degree, you can. Unfortunately, you can't completely forget the world because you start to realize just how ridiculous the books are. This book was rife with silliness. I mean, we start off with the two main characters fucking in a locker room. What. In. The. Hell? A 2.75 stars. I really want to like Kindle Alexander's books. They are soap operas. They are trashy.

I mean, we start off with the two main characters fucking in a locker room. What. In. The. Hell? And it's not just happy-go-lucky sex, or two folks in the middle of a long-term relationship. It's their first "romantic" encounter, and one of these bastards is in love. The other one quickly falls. So this is what we've got: two college athletes who are in love with each other (in fact, one is about to be recruited by the NFL), a wicked homophobic father, a tragic break-up, years of alcohol and drug-fueled grief, a bitchy Russian fiancee, (view spoiler)[a remarkably fast scene of forgiveness and reconciliation, due to a bizarre set-up in which neither character has comfortably moved on (hide spoiler)] , and on and on and on. If you put all of this in the right hands, it's Judith Krantz levels of hallelujah, pass the popcorn! But Ms. Alexander just misses the mark. Her characters' reasoning patterns often make no sense, their decisions are flawed in uninteresting ways, the evil characters aren't fun, most of the women are corrupt or whores (with the exception, interestingly enough, of the lesbians -- they're sort of saintly), and honestly, she needs an editor to catch her spelling mistakes. I want to like her. I really do. But this is the second one of her books that simply did not work for me. I'll probably give her one more chance to see if the third book will be the charm, but if it isn't, I'll be done.

I will explain. It is typical in way that one of the main character is this hot jock who plays it straight and didn't want to come out of the closet. But this book being not in a typical way is how the author delivered the story. I think it tilted my axis. It is now 23.6 degrees. This is my first read from the author and I loved it! Be sure to try this one!

My comment after the prologue....."Oh my, I've only read the couple of pages of the prologue and wow!" I always knew I was going to love this book because I have really enjoyed everything I have read by Kindle Alexander and I wasn't disappointed. I loved the story of Colton, the fully in-the-closet football player and Jace, the gifted cheerleader. They have admired and lusted for one another from afar and finally come together for one hot and sizzling encounter that becomes a week together. But theirs is true love. Torn apart by tragic circumstance, they are never able to forget each other. There is a wonderful blend of romance (Colt is surprisingly romantic and free with his emotions when he first opens up to Jace) and heartache. Colt has success in his sporting career but his personal life is tragic and Jace has not been able to move on despite achieving phenomenal success with his cheerleading business. The story has heartbreak, drama, mystery and passion! I was really pulled into the story so read it in one sitting (yes, it was a very late night, or should I say early morning!) but I just had to find out what happened at the end. The good news is that there is a happy ending. The bad news is there are still unresolved issues - or maybe that's good news because it means we get another book. And maybe we will see more of Mitch's story in Full Disclosure? I now publish all my m/m reviews on my blog so if you want to see all my m/m reviews in one place come visit at Because Two Men Are Better Than One!

    Ever see the episode of Ellen's old sitcom where Ellen told her dad that a story should have a beginning, a middle and an end, not just "middle, middle, middle"? The part between the split and the Hawaiian reunion kinda dragged a lot like that for me. I REALLY like this book a lot, but that part seemed to drag on and on with crazy amounts of angsty inner monologue. I knew it was coming, and it would be *really* good, so my own inner voice just kept screaming, "get me to the good part!"

I knew it was coming, and it would be *really* good, so my own inner voice just kept screaming, "get me to the good part!" Sometimes I'm a bit impatient like that. : ) That is honestly my only criticism about the entire book, probably due to the fact that I'd rather read more dialogue between characters about how they feel than hearing quite so much of it in their own heads. My partner and I have been together for going on 17 years now, due to one simple fact. Communication. Yelling, crying, whispering barely heard I love you's in the dark, the whole bit, but all totally necessary to get where we are today -- and I loved that. I guess that's why I'm such a sucker for that style in my reads. I can't wait for the sequel, "Full Disclosure", which looks to more of a Mitch (and maybe Tommy?) story. I hope so. I enjoyed Mitch's straight-shooting would-be smartass attitude and I got the feeling that Tommy could maybe keep up with him, so fingers crossed on that front. 4 very solid stars. ★★★★

The steamy encounter in the locker room leads to 5 idyllic days in Hawaii where Colt does his best to prove to Jace that he's completely serious about a relationship even though he knows that it will be extremely difficult....pro sport and gay...no, they don't mix!! Add to that mix Colt's father ...the worst bigot I've read about in a long time...a controlling, violent, homophobic, lazy ex football star whose only job nowadays it seems is to make as much money out of his son as he can, and his agent who is one of dad's old mates, and it strikes me that there's going to be plenty of trouble if the boys get found out...which of course they do!! What happens after they spend the 5 days in Hawaii together I'll leave you to discover, and I have to say some of it is not nice at all!! I had my usual niggles with this author's work...typos, grammar, but the worst one for me was the use of the word 'drug'...drug is not the past tense of the verb 'to drag'....I think you'll find that's dragged!! Even so, these niggles will not stop me from buying the sequel to this which I'm hoping will be Mitch's story.

The dialogue didn't have a natural sounding flow and with some of the things that they said, I had a hard time believing that grown men in their thirties would speak that way. Also, there were instances where situations or people's behavior felt very YA. If the whole story took place while Colt and Jace were in college, I could easily overlook it.....but when we're talking about men in their mid-thirties....yeah, not so much. While Jace and Colt's story is pretty much wrapped up in this book, there are definitely loose ends with the plot that I can't wait to get answers for. And bring on more U.S. Marshall Mitch....because well frankly.....YUM!
