Take one NFL tight end, and one Marine, add one week and watch the sparks fly.
Bowen Murphy craved two things, football and Dylan. After high school he had football but he lost Dylan.
Dylan Sunday walked a different path, one laid down before him by his father and his grandfather. Losing Bo one day after discovering they shared more than football wasn’t part of the bargain.
Six years of missed connections and finally Dylan is able to come home to the man he left behind. The spectacle of the biggest game in the NFL is only the beginning of one sizzling week. After that time and fate would decide if Bo and Dylan would walk the same path, or if one of them would make the ultimate sacrifice.
Warning: bittersweet tale of two hot men, making up for six years of separation. May not be suitable for sensitive readers. Contains scenes of male/male sexual practices.
When I saw the word “bittersweet” in the blurb for this book, I hesitated and waited to read it. I should have known better. This is Mercy Celeste! The woman can do no wrong! She never disappoints! And she certainly didn’t disappoint here. I fucking loved this book and can highly recommend it to M/M romance lovers everywhere. There is a very scary, angsty part to the book, but rest assured that Ms. Celeste will make it all OK. You will cry, rest assured, but you will get your HEA. And it will be worth every tear.
