**** 4 Unity stars **** "It's you I love, ya big numpty." John turned Fergus's chin to look at him. "I love you." What a great book! And more than just a sports themed story. The setting is in Scotland and portrays the issue of the animosity between Protestant and Catholics. And also how each r...

This was an odd book for me because I loved the MC's on the whole but I really had a soft spot for John. Kudos to Avery Cockburn for writing so smoothly I was able to follow the Scottish colloquialisms without a hitch and I really got into the sports scenes. My only complaint was the religious part ...

I liked this story very much - especially the banter and the sense of humor was great. Both MCs had their problems, their histories and the way their attraction builds and evolves. This book had atmosphere and I so love the whole setting in Glasgow.
