The Quarterback was one of my favorite reads in 2017. ~ Paige, Guilty Pleasures
Matt Lancaster is the star quarterback at Bodine College, a small Southern Division II school with an ultra-conservative Dean of Athletics. Matt is also very much in the closet, and he thinks he’s kept his secret well hidden. Until his best friends take him to a happy endings massage parlor and request a male masseuse for him.
In walks Trevor Kim, a gorgeous, pierced, tattooed fellow Bodine student who does massages—without happy endings—to pay for school after his family kicked him out for being gay. Trevor takes one look at Matt and breaks all his own rules about mixing business with pleasure.
Matt needs to keep his scholarship, win the National Championship, and survive his asshole father. Instead, he falls in love. Trevor needs to accept that the football god is meant to end up with him rather than a perky cheerleader. It’s time for a happy ever after for both of them.
I wasn’t sure what to expect when I begin reader The Quarterback. Often times coming of age novels are fulfilled with unnecessary angst and drama. While this contains drama it was perfectly paired with two men, Tevor and Matt.
I really enjoyed reading how these two opposites fell for each other. Their relationship wasn’t always roses but they worked together to make their relationship work.
Neither had it easy and didn’t have a huge support system but they learned to rely on the other.
The pair also had amazing chemistry. They were hot both inside and out of the bedroom. I loved when Matt realizes he’s fallen for Trevor and nothing is stopping him from getting his man.
