I really loved this I love character driven stories and this really did it for me The author has her characters down so perfectly, I never felt like I was reading about cardboard people and I enjoyed the transitions they made.It s a coming out story but one that deals with being gay not just under the public eye but in an area where there has yet to be a gay person Reading this, I thought of the

characters down so perfectly, I never felt like I was reading about cardboard people and I enjoyed the transitions they made.It s a coming out story but one that deals with being gay not just under the public eye but in an area where there has yet to be a gay person Reading this, I thought of the real life footballer Justin Fashnu and wondered, before his suicide, what sort of turmoil he went through and if it was anything like the protagonists turmoil I wasn t sure at first if the football elements would get in the way or ruin the pace but they really didn t and actually added to the tension when the characters were on the field.I m really not a romance person and I DON T read romance books but the issues addressed here intrigued me It had lots of serious elements as well as some really funny moments At times I was genuinely frightened about the outcome for both Adam Hunter and his love interest Louie Jackson.I have to say, well done to the author for tackling a subject with such finesse and I hope to seeof her work in the future My only discrepancy is that I felt the story went on a bit longer than it needed to but that s probably because I read it non stop for two days which is kind of a contradiction in itself This could have been really amazing if some parts were edited out It went in circles a bit in the middle and the timestamps got confusing Nevertheless, Adam and Louie are great together and I found myself sucked in by all the angst and kept me guessing on how the story will end 3.8 stars Recommended to those who love sports themed M M romance #FREE PDF Â Hunted ⚞ As a professional footballer it looks like Adam Hunter has it all, but when the secret of his affair with midfielder Louie Jackson begins to leak out he s plunged into the depths of misery prompting a desperate series of manoeuvres to conceal the truth Injured, distrusted by his team mates and plagued by personal tragedy, Adam goes from hero to zero and by the time Louie s transferred to a German side he s running out of reasons to stay alive If there s any way back from the brink of suicide, it isn t clear to him at the moment Wow..the angst This couple really sucked me into their story..but the back and forth confusing time line would suck me out Reading about these two hot, young, rich, talented, famous soccer superstars, you would think that they should be envied but because they held one big secret it was hard to even consider wanting to trade places with their seemingly perfect life Their in the closet love life relationship was draining to read because however much

young, rich, talented, famous soccer superstars, you would think that they should be envied but because they held one big secret it was hard to even consider wanting to trade places with their seemingly perfect life Their in the closet love life relationship was draining to read because however much they loved each other and they really really did the constant fear of being exposed overshadowed what would normally be a wonderful thing and because of this, the guys were somewhat broken.If their story was told in the order that it happened, I could see myself giving this a 5 star rating because my only other complaint is I wish we could have read maybe 5pages at the end of when they were out, proud, and happy Seriously, after the draining angsty read I feel I deserved just a littleinsight into their trouble free HEA This is probably the best sport gay romance I ve read since Peter Lefcourt s Dreyus Affair A Love Story I m pleasantly surprised by how good it was for a first time effort I believe Apart from a few editing proofing errors, the story is nicely told in a non linear, time jumping manner even managed to throw a few suspense and tense moments, It s

Peter Lefcourt s Dreyus Affair A Love Story I m pleasantly surprised by how good it was for a first time effort I believe Apart from a few editing proofing errors, the story is nicely told in a non linear, time jumping manner even managed to throw a few suspense and tense moments, It s probably not for some m m readers though, it s really focused on the sport English football There are on the pitch action, a bit of club politics to fully enjoy it, one might need to have an interest in the sport But nonetheless, it s a top notch romance about two gay sportsmen struggling to come to terms with their sexuality, the secrecy, the lies, the hurt, betrayal.I particularly like how the main character, Adam Hunter, was portrayed in the story unlike a few other sport centred m m romance, where we see the heroes quickly bravely come out when they were exposed Adam fought really hard to stay in the closet Adam s struggle and self destructive behavior and also his lover, Louie is fairly realistic as I would imagine a gay footballer would face in the top league Louie seemeddetermined to come out, but he s not without his demons and weaknesses They both love and hurt each other a lot, and to certain extent to people around them Very much character driven I thought most supporting characters are so well defined as well Adam s family background and dynamics ring true, so well written There are a few eye rolling moments for me for some of the match results, but that s only me Very engrossing read Highly recommended, even if you don t know much about English football This was a great read, on the one hand This was a rather horrible read on the other hand The writing was very compelling, the author managed to pull me into the story with just a few pages Then there was the first time jump and the next and the next Somehow I started losing my perspective so I started writing down the dates on the beginning of each new scene Imagine my surprise in the end there were 73

down the dates on the beginning of each new scene Imagine my surprise in the end there were 73 Yes, 73 breaks while I read this story Every time my reading flow was disturbed, until about 30% I had problems to understand the order, the sequences of the scenes Then it got a bit easier, but still, my reading flow was hacked.Regarding the story poor Adam, I felt with him although I wanted to just slap him over the head, several times I understood all his troubles and fears, but I lost my compassion along the line I didn t like the drugs, they were woven into the story step by step, only to then be dealt with during some short sentences, mentioning rehab I didn t like Sophia, at all Louie, well he remained aloof I could understand him losing his patience after all these years, but in the end the development felt rushed.The most positive I have to say is, this book didn t let me go I had to finish it although much of what I read I didn t like One bright spot was that the city I live next to, Munich, was however small a part of this story.I think this is another one of those books that although I finished reading I didn t like what I was reading.I think my rating would have been 4 stars, had the story been written in the correct timely sequence Well This was a heavy, depressing read The MCs are professional football players that s English football, aka soccer and they develop a very secret relationship Both are in the closet and both are struggling with it There are addiction issues, very thorough descriptions of the sport and the sport celebrity world, as well as a very emotional mental health struggle with depression This was done really well IMO, but the entire story was told in multiple flashbacks We re basically given 3 di Well This was a heavy, depressing read The MCs are professional football players that s English football, aka soccer and they develop a very secret relationship Both are in the closet and both are struggling with it There are addiction issues, very thorough descriptions of the sport and the sport celebrity world, as well as a very emotional mental health struggle with depression This was done really well IMO, but the entire story was told in multiple flashbacks We re basically given 3 different timelines the present, 4 years ago, and 6 months ago There s a chapter in the beginning and one or maybe two in the end that are in the present The two other timelines unravel slowly towards the present 3 years and 17 days ago, 3 years and 5 days ago etc and switch back and forth constantly, to the point where I felt lost a lot of the times Maybe this was done so readers can get a few happy times in between all the depressing stuff, because honestly, a linear storytelling with this amount of angst would have done me in, I m sure There is a HEA, so don t despair but it s so damn sad for so long until we get it that I m not sure it was enough to shake off the blues Good, very English writing I can recommend it to fans of mm sports romance who have the stomach for crazy angst but the flashback thing is a wild card Now that I m an official part of Manifold Press, I know I shouldn t continue my practice of reviewing my fellow authors work But for what my opinion is worth, this is a good solid read, long and detailed, that feels like a very realistic portrayal of life as a closeted gay footballer Well done, Liz I m looking forward to reading and, I hope, publishingfrom you. Update 19 2 2020An unpolished diamond, that s what this book is As a result, I can understand both those who hated it, and those like me who loved it Personally, I just can t get enough of Louie and Adam and Finn P Update 20 10 2015It s very rare that I re read a book less than a year after the first time, but in this case, I couldn t stop thinking of it And I loved it eventhis time, since now I didn t have to get through the first quarter to understand what s happened to our heroes Update 19 2 2020An unpolished diamond, that s what this book is As a result, I can understand both those who hated it, and those like me who loved it Personally, I just can t get enough of Louie and Adam and Finn P Update 20 10 2015It s very rare that I re read a book less than a year after the first time, but in this case, I couldn t stop thinking of it And I loved it eventhis time, since now I didn t have to get through the first quarter to understand what s happened to our heroes, but enjoyed it from the first page Despite knowing what was going to happen, once again I found myself unable to put it down The raw emotional impact of this one is just AMAZING, and the juxtaposition between their happy times together and later, when the black clouds gather over their heads,poignant than ever I just wish there werebooks like this one out there This book sure started strongly, as we meet the hero when he stops on a bridge, thinking of jumping down Unfortunately things didn t go as well from there on the next section moves the timeline 6 months in the past, while the one after that is set 5 years ago And we have to move between those 3 timelines again and again and again till the end of the book For the first 25%, it s near impossible to follow what s happening or what s happened in the past to generate this kind of reaction from our hero After the 25% point though, the reader begins to understand what s going on and the story s much much easier to follow And what a story it is This is one big drama featuring athletes in the closet, drugs, addiction to painkillers, bigoted team players, suicidal attempts, chronically ill family members you name it It s also a pageturner Trying to find how those two came together and why they broke up, kept me up until late in the night and I shed many a tear for them along the way The fact that the story is interspersed with descriptions of football games against Ronaldo, Rooney, Casillas inside stadiums like Alianz Arena and Camp Nou, as well as some games that supposedly took place in the last World Cup in Brazil, made the reading all the better For those of you who have not understood yet, we re talking about European football which Americans call soccer Let me tell you, it was refreshing to read at last a book about a sport that I actually understand and like, as opposed to baseball or American football that I don t know shit about.Let me add that there are quite a few errors in this book grammatical, typos, plotwise Louie is described as out of the closet at one scene, only to find out that he wasn t later and that along with the weird timelines might put some readers off There s also the fact that this is heavy drama, so people who don t like to read about suicide attempts or various forms of addiction, should stay away from this one And lastly, keep in mind those two are not perfect heroes they keep their foolish pride when they shouldn t, they say things they shouldn t, they try to please others and not themselves but all in all, I found their actions realistic and besides, I have a soft spot for non perfect heroes So I guess it s no surprise this one ended in my keepers shelf Oh, and a note to smexy scene lovers, be warned that the sex scenes fade to gray here.I m adding again the photo that made last year s sports headlines after the final of Europa League and you can decide for yourself how friendly this kiss is Wow Just wow Not what I expected at all but one of the best sports stories I ve read so far and i ve read my fair share I think this was self pubbed and I m stunned at how flawless it was Some peeps may not like the way the time jumps worked but to me it was like a fucking movie and it just built each moment so well.Adam and Louie are so great and you just want them together so badly Bless Louie and his patience with Adam s curmudgeonly ways for as long as he did hold on but I also didn t Wow Just wow Not what I expected at all but one of the best sports stories I ve read so far and i ve read my fair share I think this was self pubbed and I m stunned at how flawless it was Some peeps may not like the way the time jumps worked but to me it was like a fucking movie and it just built each moment so well.Adam and Louie are so great and you just want them together so badly Bless Louie and his patience with Adam s curmudgeonly ways for as long as he did hold on but I also didn t blame him for what he did later in the story Gah the way these two broke each others hearts over and over and all over such an easily solved issue It was fucking BLEAK, man I just didnt know how it could come together in the end Part of me expected it not too, honestly There was just so much hurt and B.S under the proverbial bridge Oh and Finny I just have to take a moment for you I ve had people who ve breezed through my life just like you Born with this void that cant be filled but enough heart to affect everyone around you long after you go Wow.Only some little niggles Wish the end had been a BIT longer since I hadn t expected it to turn out well, when it did i expected there to be some work to it, not just a I threw away the and called then flash to 6 mos later and TELL all the good stuff Hmph For that the book gets a 4.5 star but HOLY BALLS this onejust wow Such a great random find I cant believe no one is reading this one Do it You so won t be sorry.Ohfor those looking for sex It s here but rather I cant say fade to black cuz it s there I entered her and she came
