Synopsis:

 

Charlie Rourke is an ultra fabulous human whirlwind on a mission to launch the next biggest band in the world. However, he might have taken on more than he could handle when he signed on to manage Zero. Promoting a rock band and finding gigs shouldn’t be hard. They’re a talented group with a ton of star power. If Charlie can find the right record label, he’s sure he can help them get to the next level. The only problem is the skater boy slash bassist with a quirky sense of humor. He’s annoying and silly, and he’s exactly Charlie’s type. Except he’s straight.

Ky Baldwin isn’t afraid to switch things up. He loves a challenge as much as anyone, but Charlie doesn’t make things easy. Zero’s manager is a force of nature with a razor sharp tongue, a quick wit, and a no-nonsense attitude. Ky can’t stop thinking about him. Winning over Charlie becomes Ky’s pet project. But when the ice between them thaws, neither is prepared for the intensity of going from enemies to lovers. They’ll have to decide if they’re willing to start from scratch and take a chance on the unexpected.

Synopsis:

 

Max Maldonado loves baseball. He knows playing first base at a private college probably won’t get him to the big leagues, but he doesn’t mind. He loves the game and his teammates. If he has to stay in the closet until he graduates, that’s okay. Baseball comes first. Relationships are complicated anyway. And after his recent messy breakup, Max prefers to keep things simple.

 Phoenix Bell is a fabulous theater geek. He’s excited about his recent transfer to a new school with an elite liberal arts program. Life has been on hold for a while, but this opportunity feels like the fresh start he was hoping for when he moved to California. And the chance reunion with the hot closeted jock is an unexpected surprise. The two men have nothing in common and their timing couldn’t be worse. However, when their unconventional alliance blossoms into friendship and perhaps something more, it may be time to make some hard decisions. And perhaps risk it all…out in the field.

Synopsis:

 

Derek Vaughn is a little too serious. He’s a type A control personality with a penchant for order and a love of water polo. But he’s determined to enjoy his last year of college. The real world with a serious job and big expectations can wait for a few months. He’s going soak up every minute on campus with his friends and teammates before he moves on. The only possible kink in his plan is the new guy on the team… also known as his nemesis.

Gabe Chadwick has big Olympic dreams. His transfer between Southern California universities has nothing to do with scholastics. The degree is his backup plan. He’s not there to party or make friends. And he certainly isn’t going to announce his sexuality. But he can’t deny there’s something special about the uptight team captain. However, when an unwitting friendship and mutual attraction collide, both will have to decide if this is the real thing or if they’re about to lose it all in the deep.

 

 
 
 

Out in the Deep (Out in College, #1)Out in the Deep by Lane Hayes
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Gabe has changed schools for the benefit of getting ready for the Olympics. With finishing his last year of college, he knows it is time to get ready to move on and make his life happen. Being attracted to the team captain was not in his plan.

Derek wants his last year of college to be full of great memories. He plans to do his best, to be the best, and a new teammate that he does not get a long with was not in his plan. Gabe changes things for Derek. Almost right away he is not the same.

Being explosive right from the start, these two men are in each others pockets almost right away. No wanting to get along, and not wanting to be attracted to one another, they cannot find chemistry that is nearly electrocuting themselves. With decisions to make, and places to be they finally give in to their feelings and must decide how to tackle the future if they are to be together.

Narrated by Michael Pauley, I love the voice inflections and changes that tell you that there are new voices talking. I really loved listening to the book even more than reading it. It made me feel like I was right there in the room with the characters. This is the beginning of a great series, and I am excited to listen to the rest of the books that are coming.

Heat Level: 4 - Lots of Sex  
Pairing: Male/Male  
Length: 4 hrs and 58 mins  
Genre: Romance, New Adult, Bisexual, College romance, Football, Coming out
 

 

 

 

Synopsis:

 

Evan di Angelo is an upbeat, good-natured goofball who loves his friends and family… and football. A traumatic accident may have ended his hopes of playing professionally, but he’s made the most of his four years on the field at a small Southern California college. He’s learned the hard way to embrace change, take chances and try things outside of his comfort zone...like agreeing to play fake boyfriends for someone else’s senior project.

Mitch Peterson knows that being his authentic self is the path to true happiness. He’s grown from a shy, quiet kid from a broken home to an out and proud budding internet sensation bound for grad school. An awesome senior project is the key. It’s unlikely anyone will believe the hunky, straight athlete is Mitch’s new lover, but it’s worth a shot. However, as their tentative friendship blossoms into unexpected attraction, the lines between reality and fiction blur for both men. Evan is forced to face old demons and decide if he has the courage to take the next step and come out in the end zone.

 

 

 

 

Out in the End Zone (Out in College #2)Out in the End Zone

by Lane Hayes

This is book #2 in the Out In College series. This book can be read as a standalone novel. For reader understanding of the series, and to avoid spoilers, I recommend reading this series in order.

Evan and Mitch have mutual friends. They are often at parties and places together with their friends in common. When Mitch's project gives them reason to be together more often, Evan jumps at the chance.

Mitch is not sure what to think. He is grateful he has found someone open enough to the possibilities that he can finally get the test results for his project to be done. At the same time, he is incredibly attracted to Evan.

This to me, is a wonderful add to the series, as well as this author's finest book yet. I found the characters charming. Their story felt very real. I sure hope this is made into a movie. Would love to see this on the big screen. Narrated by Michael Pauley, it is a joy to listen to. He changes the sounds of the voices and makes it easy to tell whom is speaking. I found this to be a great addition to the Out In College series.

Synopsis:

 

Josh Sheehan is unlucky in love and now… newly unemployed. He’s not sure what to do next, but he’s sure he should give up on romance. Especially after last time. His friends warned him that falling for the hunky Irishman was a bad idea. Josh can’t help feeling torn even though he knows it’s best to move on. But when an unexpected dose of family drama blindsides him, Josh finds himself leaning on the one man he’s supposed to forget.

 

Finn Gallagher is driven by success. He makes no secret that building a name for his tech company is his number one goal. Finn left home a decade ago with a ton of regret, a heavy heart, and a vow to never repeat the same mistake twice. However, there is something undeniably appealing about the self-deprecating man with the silly sense of humor that makes it difficult for Finn to remember why falling for Josh is a bad idea. It soon becomes clear they’re both in deeper than they intended. There is no way to remain untouched. And there is so much to gain, if they’re brave enough to lean in.

Leaning Into Touch (Leaning Into, #4)Leaning Into Touch by Lane Hayes
My rating: 3 of 5 stars


This book is technically the 4th book in the series, though it is labeled as book #3 in the Leaning Into Stories series. This book can be read as a standalone novel. To avoid spoilers and have a greater understanding of the series, I recommend reading these books in order.

Josh is unsure what he wants to do with his future, now that his current job is complete. He is trying to work this out as he runs into an ex that he has never really gotten over. Can he trust his feelings to try again with Finn, even though he is a mess about the rest of his life?

Finn never wanted to say goodbye in the past to Josh. Running into him repeatedly lately feels like fate taking a hand. Can he convince the skittish man to give him another chance?

This story just stole my heart. These characters so obviously belong together. I loved the very real heartache they expressed. I also felt the heat with the sexy times. Really good read and addition to the series. The narrator did an amazing job on the different voices, where you can tell each character apart. Was a great experience, as the different accents, and inflections were very heartfelt.
