The bigger you become, the harder you fall.
Sebastian Saunders is a rising rock star. Jay Ruttman is a Premier League football player. Their year-long relationship is hot commodity. Hounded by the press and fans alike, the lovers struggle to keep their private lives private.
Flying high in the charts and having Jay by his side, Seb is finally living his dream. But Jay’s new, promising career is threatened when a horrific injury on the pitch has him side lined—not only in the game but also in his relationship with Seb.
Jay’s crippling self-destruction spirals out of control, tearing them apart. To move forward, both men must learn to leave their past behind—not so easy when it keeps coming back to haunt them.
Can their hard-fought relationship survive the ultimate test?
This is the concluding part to the District Line series where the full-time whistle could signal an end to their turbulent journey… or is it just the beginning?
As the third book in the series, this was the wrap up of the relationship between Sebastian and Jay.
Jay is taking some flak for coming out in the last year, as is his team. He and Seb have decided that they won’t discuss their relationship to the public, but when Seb’s band makes it to the big time, he has a live interview and can’t help himself.
Honestly, this book didn’t do much for me. I have to admit that I skimmed a lot in the first half. I was really searching for a plot line, but didn’t really find one. It was more the ins and outs of regular life until the last 80% or so when I finally got what I was looking for. I feel like this could have been shortened to novella length and it would have read better.
The end was worth the read, as that was where the action was. The feelings were present, the story picked up, and I felt the love in my gut. This was definitely the HEA that I’d hoped for.
