2nd Edition

Matt Blanco is a legend on the Brooklyn Eagles, but time and injuries have taken their toll. With his career nearing its end, he’s almost made it to retirement without anyone learning his biggest secret: he’s gay in a profession not particularly known for its tolerance.

Iggy Rodriquez is the hot new rookie in town, landing a position in the starting lineup of the team of his dreams and playing alongside his idol, Matt Blanco. Iggy doesn’t think it can get any better, until an unexpected encounter in the locker room with Matt proves him wrong.

A relationship—and everything it could reveal—has never been in the cards for Matt, but Iggy has him rethinking his priorities. They fall hard for each other, struggling to make it through trades, endorsement deals, and the threat of retirement. Ultimately they will be faced with a choice: love or baseball?

What I loved most about this book is the time it took, we span years not the normal weeks or months. So this gave us plenty of time to learn these two, the teammates, and friends. As well as the ups and downs of the situations they are placed in. Both of these characters have issues they have to overcome. Age being a big one, in the beginning. Team prejudices and general homophobia within the sports industry. Watching the struggles and then the rewards that Matt and Iggy go through during the years that this covers was interesting. We did get baseball, baseball game, lingo and so on. But we also got what the team did to keep the money coming in. What they did during the off time. How they interacted with each other, friends and family. But more importantly we got to watch two people learn each other, be-careful around each other, fall in love with each other. And have a HEA to beat all others.

This was a beautiful story. It made me think how hard it is to life your life hiding who you are just because we still have people want to impose their beliefs on others. I loved both characters and their love story.
