I read this book a few months ago, but it has really stuck with me. Daniel’s journey, especially, struck a chord–he’s from a big city and comes from a family that doesn’t support who he is. The angst in this book is palpable. I mean, even the cover is angsty in its own smexy way.
When he moves to a tiny Michigan town, he meets Rex, a giant sexy man who, in my fantasies, plays for both teams. Obstacles to their relationship, as well as plenty of sexy hijinks, ensue. I loved how Daniel was forced to face down his uncomfortable upbringing and learn how to be a better person, and I seriously loved Rex. So. Much.
If you’re looking for a m/m romance with a good ratio of angst to sexytimes and some solid character development, this would be a great choice!
