Sweet novella about a NFL running back and history professor. Tre Griffin is on his way home to Chicago, but his flight get cancelled and has to go to a hotel. He meets Michael at the bar...Michael has no idea who Tre is (which Tre likes as he is constantly swarmed by adoring fans). One night isn't enough for either of them...this was a sweet story with some very steamy scenes. This could work as a full novel with more character development...but as a novella it was great! ( )

Tre is a Afro American professional football player who lives in Miami. But this year his team has not make the final and now he wants nothing but leave the city to not be around people who are waiting to see the big final game and blaming him cause their home team is not on the field. So when his flight is delayed and he is forced to spend a night in an hotel near the airport, he thinks to drink some beers to the hotel bar and hit the matress alone. And instead he meets Michael, a shy history professor who is in town to visit the family and who doesn't know nothing of football and the only thing he knows is that Tre is a very handsome and nice guy and surprisingly he has made a move on him.

Michael is thrilled. This gorgeous guy is willingly to spend an entire weekend with him and he seems also a very thoughtful man: what starts like a quickie in a bathroom, becomes an hot weekend where they have the chance not only to do a great sex but also to know better each other. But Monday Michael has to fly again home in Washington DC and Tre is a deep in the closet man, who can't outing without destroying his career.

I like this story. It's simple and tender. Tre is a very good next door guy, gentle and clever, not the usual stereotyped athlete character. Michael instead is the classical professor type, cute but shy, who sells himself short. But he is also a very sensual man, very open to sexuality and when naked in bed, not very shy: a really discovery I should say.

All in all this is a very enjoyable book, maybe a little short, less than 60 pages, but really well written.

P.S. another cover which doesn't much with the book, Michael is not at all like the man in it...
