There’s never been any question in Sean Tucker’s mind that he’d do whatever it took to make it to the major leagues and be one of the best pitchers of his time. The day he acknowledged to himself that he was gay was also the day he vowed to stay in the closet in order to chase his dreams. The problem is, he never counted on Mason Atley.
Sean showed rookie short stop Mason Atley the ropes, both on the field and off. The two forged a friendship which continued as both of them moved through the ranks of the farm system and into the majors. Unfortunately, there’s always been one secret Mason never felt he could share with Sean. Until now.
For seven years, Sean lived with the fact that he loved a man who would never reciprocate. When Mason admits that he’s always known he’s bisexual but has never allowed himself to pursue a relationship with a man, will Sean be able to put aside his reservations about starting a relationship with the friend he’d always assumed was straight? And more importantly, will they be able to find a way to stay together when their careers keep them apart more than they can be together?

I. Couldn't. Put. It. Down!!
OMG! I loved Sean and Mason. I wanted to get the conclusion, but I didn't want it to end. I love when you can emotionally connect with the characters. I felt Sean and Mason. I felt the love and passion they shared. Sloan is an amazing writer. She knows how to weave a story. I went into this apprehensive. After "Godsend" I was wondering if this was going to be another heartbreaking cry fest, but it wasn't. It wasn't even all that angst filled. It was a very enjoyable read.
The characters were loving, and passionate. The chemistry and sexual tension was off the charts. The sex was hot, and I loved the storyline. A huge part of this book deals with their baseball careers, but it isn't overloaded with sports. I'm not a baseball fan, and I never felt bored or overwhelmed with the sports aspect of the story. This book had great secondary characters. I loved Mason's parents, Sean's sister and I also loved Jason and Eric. I am looking forward to Jason's book (I hope Sloan is typing fast), and I hope we see plenty more books in this series, along with glimpses of Sean and Mason in the future!
