Playing in the red zone, the area right before the goal, statistically means the likelihood to score is higher, but it also makes everything more intense. That is certainly a good way to describe this fun filled and very hot story. Dean and Dolton have eyed each other for a while, both playing in the same weekend football league team, but now that they've both decided to approach the other, the tension ramps up a few notches and they come together in an explosion of passion and heat.

Dolton is self-confident, knows what he wants, and very intelligent. An anthropologist by training, he is also good at observing people, which comes in handy not just when ogling Dean, the man he is crushing on, but also when one of their teammates, Dean's friend Robbie, makes some very nasty comments and may be up to more. Dolton is a great guy, very dominant and a good top, but extremely sensual at the same time and more than ready to let Dean fight his own battles and take the lead on occasion.

Dean describes himself as a pushy bottom and he is certainly that. He also likes to give up control, and when he gets to know Dolton better, he realizes he can trust his new lover completely. As happy as Dean is to have Dolton as his lover, his old friend Robbie makes him wonder why they ever became close. I could see the confrontation between them coming, and when it does, Dean certainly makes his point more than adequately.

These two men play hard, whether it's on the football field, in the playroom, or in bed. They are a great fit, and the smoldering heat between them flares up to burning levels at almost any time they more than look at each other. If you like stories about tough guys who each give as good as they get, if you enjoy reading about partners who are ideally suited to be lovers, and if you're looking for a read with as much kink as heat that requires no toys, then you will probably like this novella.
