lovers beware this book is not saturated by endless sex scenes but actually this story does offer a great story of being out in professional sports, the adversity that an out player is faced with, etc.Adam, the MLS league s first out soccer player is traded and comes to St Louis with a chip on his shoulder and seems jaded And when we meet Colin, his love interest, I wondered, Is he gay or not I think Ms Loveless did a good job with telling a good tale of coming out for the first time and of falling in love This is first and foremost a romance.Now mind you the road of Adam Colin falling in love was a bumpy one there were one night stands, nerves, reference to largeappendages, a plucky Australian soccer player, a funny soccer team and a visit to a male strip club I had fun taking that road to Adam and Colin s love and recommend this story to those who love good M M romance.I look forward to readingfrom this author 3.5 starsWhen Adam Dumas finds out that he is being transferred into St Louis by his old team the L.A Galaxy, all he can think of is how to get out from there as soon as possible Until his eyes capture the form of his new roommate, center forward Colin Evets, and soon Adams struggles to make better impression because he realizes he can fall for the younger player Except, oh, Colin is not really gay isn t he I think it is the first story in realm of soccer that I have read Kudos for that 3.5 starsWhen Adam Dumas finds out that he is being transferred into St Louis by his old team the L.A Galaxy, all he can think of is how to get out from there as soon as

Except, oh, Colin is not really gay isn t he I think it is the first story in realm of soccer that I have read Kudos for that Especially in the seems to be well research work, into the world of soccer and MLS Division games I enjoy the scenes of practices and the relationship among the players I do wish to seeaction on the field though but this is from a woman who watched World Cup since 1990 lol.Unfortunately, I cannot seem to feel as emotionally connected to the characters MAYBE, because while this story is written in 3rd person, but the main narrator is Adam There is no perception from Colin, so I kind of feel one sided Adam Dumas is Major League Soccer s only openly gay player When he is transferred to St Louis, his new teammates don t exactly roll out the welcome mat It doesn t help that Adam sees the Gateway to the West as a step down from his high profile position in LA an attitude Adam has no problem sharing with his new housemate and fellow center forward, Colin Evets Colin is Adam s only friend on the team, but when Adam misinterprets Colin s Midwestern charm for something , he could end up ruining both their friendship and their careers As Adam struggles to make a better impression, Colin tries to decide if the person he s been showing the world is who he wants to be with Adam The pressure to win influences decisions both on the field and off as Adam and Colin discover how making the wrong move can be very right Kind of slow getting started This book had waysoccer lingo than I expected, details about the game, and about contracts and getting traded I know for some people that works, but for me, I was just bored.At first, I wasn t even sure if I was going to like Adam He seemed like a jerk, a bit of a spoiled brat But I did grow to really enjoy him, and especially Colin.I was ticked when the first sex scene was fade to black, then the next one wasdetailed, and one of the guys fainted Dec Kind of slow getting started This book had waysoccer

the sex is minimal but boy is their first sexual encounter together an experience, I could not stop laughing it was certainly memorable The rest of the team were engaging and fun especially the locker room scenes and the play on the field I thoroughly enjoyed this For an Italian reader, Offside is a bit of a fantasy tale for two main reasons first of all, soccer players in Italy are like heroes, and like that they are high paid professionals with a huge following and in no way a favourite of the team could be easily exchanged, like a pawn of a bigger game second, homosexuality is still a taboo, no one will admit there are gay soccer players in the Italian league and in no way a soccer player could come out without losing his team and everything else Sa For an Italian reader, Offside is a bit of a fantasy tale for two main reasons first of all, soccer players in Italy are like heroes, and like that they are high paid professionals with a huge following and in no way a favourite of the team could be easily exchanged, like a pawn of a bigger game second, homosexuality is still a taboo, no one will admit there are gay soccer players in the Italian league and in no way a soccer player could come out without losing his team and everything else Said that, I know the same is not abroad, and I think that in the US, soccer isa little brother sport of the bigger game like Football and Baseball maybe, for this reason, a soccer player has less pressure in comparison to other athletes, and he is allowedfreedom, even to come out That is the point of this novel, Adam is a not so young athlete true he is less than 30 years old, but for someone who started his career when he was 15 years old, he is an old player now who is kicked out from his team to let space to younger meat He has now a contract with a team in St Louis, Missouri, very far from Los Angeles, not only on a miles distance, but also on custom While Adam, openly gay, has some freedom in Los Angeles, which is not the same in provincial St Louis Truth be told, most of his troubles are not from him being gay, but since he is the new guy in town Indeed the other team mates are mostly welcoming him, and in one specific case, Colin, seems even interested in him asthan a fellow soccer player Colin is way younger than Adam, not only in age, but also experience Sexual experience From what I gathered, Colin is a virgin in every sense of the word, and basically Adam is corrupting him The relationship between Colin and Adam is mostly sweet and even funny maybe even a little too much funny, Colin fainting during sex, not once but two times, is maybe not so realistic, but it adds a comic touch to the whole story Aside from that, Colin and Adam don t meet many obstacles to their love story, and Adam finds also support around him, from friends, colleagues and relatives That is again nice, I realize that sometime I m a bit pessimistic, but I don t find so many time such situation in today society, even if we are in the XXI century ButandI find this in the stories I read, andthan once authors and readers commented that that is their own experience like the same author in the author s bio of this novel , so maybe it s possible, and I m glad that it is 4 StarsI have to admit I know very little about soccer so slogging through all the contract BS, terminology and play action was slow going for me I guess that bit at the start of the book about how it s only once ever 4 years that Americans even remember we have professional soccer teams hit dead center on point.I liked Michaels I mean, he s a goalie like our own awesome Tim Howard , and really would like to readabout him He s an Aussie, so that s practically a given And maybe Loga 4 StarsI have to admit I know very little about soccer so slogging

great because sometimes it s either all ridiculously hot, or has no detail at alland I liked the idea of laughing during sex because it SHOULD be fun Right Anyway, that was all well and good but I could have done without Colin fainting Twice It s a bit melodramatic and self serving Seriously, Adam s cock is that good I dunno At first I thought maybe he had an injury he neglected to mention or that he hit his head and was having an aneurysm Adam did mention a few chapters earlier about hidden bruises and it was easy to think that was foreshadowing of some sort So yeah, it was good I didn t zone out during the game descriptions so that in and of itself is an endorsement The only time that will never, ever be an issue is Football I luuuurrrrve me some gay footballer stories and I ll pick apart what s wrong in a play if it s written incorrectly, soyeah Off to see about the next one if one exists And if something is going to be 1 there really ought to be another one or that s like false advertising or something A really enjoyable story with great characters who drew me into the story There is great contrast between the two men which made their relationship interesting to watch.I was drawn to the character of Adam, not necessarily liking him at first, but sympathetic to his situation Openly gay and a talented and experienced soccer player, he is unhappy with a team transfer He moves to St Louis with only one plan, finish his contract and get out He is pissed off and angry at the way he has been trea A really enjoyable story with great characters who drew me into the story

of the doubt Colin is very inexperienced and uncertain about his sexuality, never having given it much thought before, instead focusing on his soccer A misunderstanding results in Colin giving it a littlethought I appreciated the way Adam behaved with Colin His old ways behind him, he was gentle and focused on Colin s feelings As well as the romance, there was enough drama to keep things moving along I also loved the way both men end up making certain decisions based on their feelings for the other view spoiler Colin comes out for Adam, refusing to deny their relationship and Adam turns down the chance to return to his old team who come grovelling back hide spoiler definitely warm and fuzzies I now publish all my m m reviews on my blog so if you want to see all my m m reviews in one place

club so yes, he s a bit flighty.Adam is an out famous player that is suddenly transferred to a small club He s mad, he only wants to shine enough to be picked again by a big club But first he must

issues around football maybe are too dense for me that I really DON T like this sport But the story with Colin is lovely Except not entirely believable his attitude change But yeah Adam was very supportive helping Colin s outing ALSO ADDThis book is from 2011 I m reading it on 2016 and still I can t imagine an OUT famous football player here in spanish league This sport at least here is still quite retrograde and sexist.SAD, SO SAD
