I have come across two other books by Mark A Roeder. Never tried to finish those books. But this Outfield Menace might change my thought of his books.

I liked Outfield Menace for the fact that it was not another senseless young adult gay themed film. The story was not outstanding but yet, I felt the need to know more of whatever that could happen to Kurt and his relationship with Angel.

Sure, some plots were rather questionable. Even Ryan was a weak character to be included in the book, but there was a nice touch of bonding between Kurt and Angel, and I was rather interested with Kurt's issue with his brother, Sam.

The ending was rather simple, but it was a nice welcome, compared to many sleazy erotica out there. ( )
