It’s not easy being a major league baseball player who’s in the closet, but that’s what Mac and Dove have to do in order to have their careers and each other. When Mac has an especially frustrating day, he knows he needs to deal with it himself. So imagine his surprise when Dove appears at his hotel door: they don’t do this during the season. Is Dove changing the rules? And if so, can Mac follow?
Story also appears in the Scoring anthology.
This short story was pretty much nothing but hot, smutty fun and if all books featuring athletes included scenes like this I’d read them more. 😀 The story is pretty much what you read in the blurb except you get to see Mac and Dove together in a couple of different instances now that Dove has changed the status quo of not getting together during the season. Mac and Dove were totally hot together but you also got to see the sweeter side of Dove, not just the Dom, and I loved that. Its no secret that I generally enjoy bdsm books and, even though there weren’t a lot of pages to work with, I felt that the author still managed to give a nice variety to the scenes, including some things I wasn’t expecting but nevertheless enjoyed.
I wish I could go into details but with a story of this length, and bearing in mind that its mostly smut, I’d give too much away and ruin the fun of reading it for yourselves. Fans of bdsm should enjoy this story quite a bit but if that isn’t your cup of tea, you’ll want to give this one a pass. For the length of the story, however, I’d say this was totally worth it and I thoroughly enjoyed reading it! 😀
