Blurb: Three years ago, Chet Sloan left a promising job as Offensive Line Coach at the University of Arizona in an effort to put distance between himself and an Incoming Freshman. Bobby Ray Sikes first came to Chet’s attention as a high school sophomore when he took his small Arkansas town’s football team to a state championship. For two years Chet watched Bobby Ray Sikes play, knowing the boy was meant for greatness. When he recognized his feelings had grown from adoration to something more, Chet ran. In an effort to save his career and Bobby Ray Sikes’s chance to one day go professional, Chet took a job at North Central Idaho University.
For three years, Bobby Ray Sikes played for a team he hated. Not only was he expected to act like the rest of the guys on the team, but the one man he’d agreed to play for had left him high and dry. After reading an article on BK House, a privately funded all-gay dormitory, in OUT magazine, he decides to do the unthinkable and transfer colleges his senior year.
Most coaches would be thrilled to learn a two-time All American was transferring in to play ball for their team, but Chet’s feelings for Bobby Ray Sikes haven’t changed. Will he be forced to run again or can he coach the man he loves?
Review: It’s been nearly 3 years since we last saw the boys from Campus Cravings and I have to say Carol Lynne hasn’t let us down with the story which re-starts the series.
Bobby Ray Sikes knows what he wants for his future and it includes Chet Sloan in his bed and his heart. Chet thinks he knows what Bobby wants and what he needs and that’s Football. Bobby tries to make Chet understand that there is more to his life than football and he doesn’t want to go pro. Chet only wants what is right for Bobby and tries to keep his feelings to himself.
Even though these two say they love each other it’s been 3 years since they last saw each other so they don’t really know the men they are now, so they have to get to know one another again, another happy ending for the Campus boys?
There was one thing that puzzled me though… early in the book it say’s Chet’s starting to lose his hair at the age of thirty-two but later he says he’s fourteen years older than Bobby, but Bobby is twenty-two?? So is he thirty-two or thirty-six?? Anybody with an answer please leave a post.
I think anyone who’s read and liked the previous books in the series will like this one as well as it follows in the same vein, so thumbs up from me.
