Up and coming football hero, Colton Michaels, makes a Hail Mary pass one night in the college locker room that results in the hottest, sexiest five days of his young life. However, interference after the play has him hiding his past and burying his future in the bottom of a bottle. While Colt seems to have it all, looks can be deceiving, especially when you’re trapped so far in a closet that you can’t see your way out. When ten years of living his expected fast-lane lifestyle lands him engaged to his manipulative Russian supermodel girlfriend, he decides it’s time to call a new play.
Jace Montgomery single-handily built the largest all-star cheerleading gym in the world, driven by a need to forget a life-altering encounter with a handsome quarterback a decade ago. His reputation as an excellent coach, hard-nosed business man, and savvy entrepreneur earned him respect in the sometimes catty world of competitive cheerleading. When Jace learns of his ex-lover’s plans to marry, his heart executes a barrel roll and his carefully-placed resolve tumbles down without a mat to absorb the shock. Can his island escape help him to finally let go of the past and move his life forward?
Double Full was absolutely not what I expected. It also wasn’t the typical way romances normally flow. None of that is a bad thing. It caught me off guard and made me sit up and take notice. I love it when an author shakes things up.
So what was different. Most romances spend time with characters in search of their ‘Happy Ever After.’ Jace and Colt got their’s in the beginning. It wasn’t immediate. Jace spent a lot of time in denial and not trusting Colt. On the flip side, Colt bent over backwards to prove he really cared for Jace. Then… it was all ripped away.
I spent a fair amount of time in ‘Momma Bear’ mode in this book. If I could have reached in and flogged the people that were supposed to be looking out for and supporting Colt, I would have. And poor Jace…. *sigh*
Needless to say, Double Full was an emotional roller coaster. There were characters that I loved and characters that I hated. I wanted to tell Jace that it was okay, but for a long time it wasn’t. I wanted to wrap a protective bubble around Colt so no one could hurt him anymore than they already had. Yes, this book made me feel… a lot.Both good and bad.
Besides Colt and Jace, one of my favorite characters came in late, but made quite an impression. The next book in Kindle Alexander’s Nice Guys series, Full Disclosure releases soon and I can’t wait to get more time with Mitch.
