“I dare you to kiss me, Wade.”

Well, this was a cute m/m novella. The story follows Wade Truman, a football athlete who just signed a contract that will put him more in the spotlight. All he has ever wanted to do was play the sport that he loves. Unfortunately, that also means having to hide who he is for a while. Then we have Heath Taylor who is an openly gay friend of sorts. They aren’t really the closest of friends and they don’t really hang out outside of the LGBTA gatherings they attend, but they do enjoy each other’s company. When they first met, it wasn’t a very friendly introduction but they soon after hit it off. As they years went by, and them seeing each other at these meetings, the attraction between them grew, even though Heath promised himself that he would never crush on a straight guy. Now they are brought together alone for two days because Wade is allowed the opportunity to interview the former Football star that he looks up to, and Heath will be the photographer of the interview. This is when things start to heat up between them.

‘Mine, he thought. A fierce possessive streak staggered him. A snarky gay boy from Pittsburgh didn’t do caveman. He wanted to be done by a caveman. But, Heath had never wanted anything more than Wade–his Southern gentleman fantasy come to life.’

I really loved Wade and what a sexy southern gentleman he was. I felt bad for him and how he felt he had to hide in order to make a career for himself, but I understood where he was coming from. I was happy that he had Heath as a friend who was out and proud, and spoke his mind. They were a bit of opposites in personality but they were so perfect together. I didn’t know how I was going to feel knowing that their story started before this novella began, but I actually liked it. It was very well written that I could feel the chemistry and friendship between Wade and Heath, and the glimpse of how they met was more that enough for me. I loved the easy-going banter between them. And I also loved the sexual tension. It was great having both of their POV’s to know how they were feeling and thinking. It was just really cute seeing them together. The sex scenes were so very scorching hot!! I loved them and it totally made my heart melt.

The story was really great and I liked the message it had about accepting that love is love, and there is nothing wrong with it. It was a novella, so it didn’t take very long to read. I am really happy I got to connect with both characters in that short time. I totally swooned watching them fall further in love with each other. I liked the ending that it even had me smiling. However, I didn’t want it to end. I feel like there is still more of Wade and Heath’s story to be told. Well, at least I am hoping there is because I would love another book of the both of them. Overall, it was a great short read and one that is worth checking out.

amazon usAMAZON UKgoodreadsA closeted football star. An out and closeted football star. And a road trip.Wade Truman had grown accustomed to admiring Heath Taylor from afar. Now, years of denying himself and the irresistible Heath are wreaking havoc on Wade’s resolve. The odds are stacked against them … they’re graduating college soon. Wade just signed a multimillion dollar football deal—thrusting him even further into the spotlight. Not to mention, what would the gorgeously refined Heath want with a small town jock boy like himself anyway?

Heath grew up privileged, accepted, and out. And the two hells he swore he would never put himself through—crushing on a straight guy and being anyone’s dirty little secret—have presented themselves in one sweet talkin’, dream hauntin’ package. One weekend with Wade, and Heath’s sure the devil himself has come a-knockin’.

Warning: Contains Southern accents wielded like weapons of desire, a snarky, do-gooder Pennsylvanian, and two boys deserving of true love.
