Professional basketball player Bri Early needs a physical therapist after an injury, and he’s heard that Obie is the best. Bri takes an immediate liking to the out-and-proud man with the magic touch, and even though Bri isn’t openly gay himself, he’d never let anything stand in the way of something he wants.
Obie can’t deny that the sexy athlete presses all his buttons, but he’s a professional and has no intention of getting involved with a client. While they’re working together, it’s hands off, no matter how great the temptation.
But being a pro athlete isn’t easy. Bri has enemies, and one of them is making his life hell. When his house is set ablaze, Bri can no longer pretend the threatening messages he’s receiving are jokes. He needs a safe place to stay, and Obie can’t turn his back. But the two of them in the same house is a recipe for combustion that could burn them both….
I really enjoyed this read. Andrew Grey is one of the top authors I enjoy reading. Each book is different from the last book. That is what makes each of the books by Andrew such a great read. This book is about a basketball player but this book is not primarily based around the game but more around the man who plays the game. This is a story about a man who is in the closet. After an exhibition game, he was hurt and had to do rehab. While doing his rehab, he started getting threats and at first he ignored them but as things start to happen, he knows he can no longer ignore them. And the fact he has someone in his life who could be hurt in the crossfire worries him most.
This book was a great read with a huge air of mystery and some danger about it. I also like that through everything going on there is also also a story as well. Andrew did a great job on this book.
Bri knows he is gay but he has not come out because of his love for his professional career as a basketball player. When Bri hurts his knee and needs therapy to get back to the game he loves. This is how he meets Obie.
Obie is Bri’s therapist. Though he feels the attraction between the two of them, he is not willing to go down that road because Bri is a client. But as he gets to know Bri better, he cannot help to question if he can keep things strictly professional. Then Obie becomes aware of the threats being made towards Bri. And the more dangerous things get, the more Obie can no longer deny how he feels about Bri.
When Obie gets caught in the middle of Bri’s mess, Bri realizes it is more important to be with Obie then it is to be in the closet. But can these two make it through this threat without either of them getting hurt?
