The nerd, the coach, and the hookup…
Swipe left, swipe left, swipe left. Sure, the idea of a quick, no-strings intimate rendezvous via hookup app sounds oddly thrilling, but it’s simply not me. Or maybe it is me, because it happened…and I liked it. Until I realized he looked familiar for a reason. A bad reason. Now I’ve made a faux pas with the sexiest man on planet Earth, and my internal karma system requires me to fix it. Help!
I may seem like I have it together, but the truth is, I’m a hot mess. I’m so deep in the closet that I can’t remember my real name some days. That’s okay. The benefit of one-night stands is anonymity. Until Asher. Not a total surprise. I’ve always had a thing for geeks, but I’ve never met anyone like him. He’s a pint-sized dynamo on a quest for perfection who can help me come out…if I follow his script.
Hmm. I’m in.
The Jock Script is an MM bisexual, geek/jock romance starring a bowtie-wearing nerd, a sexy lacrosse coach, and a shenanigan-inducing script!
How was it?
Compared to Following the Rules or Rules of Play, this entry is a bit more serious in tone and subject matter. There’s a weight to Blake’s story that was a refreshing change from the bi-awakening formula this series seemed to be about up until now. It’s still in the same realm since our boy, Blake, is on the DL, but at least he was never blind to the MM side of his sexuality.
I’ve been completely engrossed in the series, reading one book after the other and there was a sameness in the stories that were starting to creep in, so the slight shift here was welcome. However there’s this one thing that annoyed me in the story, which is a minor spoiler but the whole “I can’t sleep with you because you slept with my friend” thing almost made me mad, that is some hetero BS. People shouldn’t own people, and your exes are not somewhat still yours even after your relationship with them is done.
Besides that minor BS this story was delightful and a tad angstier than the previous entries. Asher and Blake make a good pair.
