Our Rating: A Whole Bottle of Wine
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 by Kindle Alexander was my first introduction into the wonderful world of male/male romance novels. I've read quiet a few books where there happens to be some male on male action, but never a full on gay romantic relationship. So if you are like me, Double Full is the PERFECT place for you to start. Before starting this book, I wasn't quiet sure what to expect. Was it erotic or "fade to black" Romance? Come on, you know you are wondering the same thing! I just needed someone to give me a heat factor! Kindle has several other books out there, but even in the reviews I couldn't tell what category her books fit. It seems no one really elaborated further than "Gay romance". So let me lay it out for you.
Double Full is both erotic and romantic. It has equal parts of heartfelt emotions that will make you swoon, and steamy sex scenes that will leave you chugging wine and fanning yourself. Need further explanation?
"Let me tell you what I am sure of, what I want. I want you to fuck me tonight. I want you inside me. It’s my first time, but I know I liked your finger in my ass when we made out in the locker room. How do you feel about that?"
“I’ve never gotten over you. Ever. Not one day passed that I didn’t think about you. For me, you’re the love of my life. Wherever you are is exactly where I want to be,"
Now to the review part!
Double Full is more that just a book about Colton Michaels and Jace Montgomery falling in love. This book is packed full of drama and angst! Two men falling in love is hard enough when one is not ready to publicly embrace his sexuality. Add in an abusive father and a world of professional sports dominated by homophobes, and a relationship between the star quarterback and male cheerleader becomes more that just difficult. It becomes impossible. Colton Michaels has everything to lose from coming out as a homosexual man. His budding career as an NFL quarterback, his family and team mates are all on the line. But for Colton the scariest of all is losing Jace.
I have a new "author crush" on Kindle Alexander. I just finished one of her other books,Texas Pride, and it is just as phenomenal as this one (review to follow soon). Seriously, I love her. If you are unsure about the male/male aspect of this book. I urge you to give it a try. I promise you will fall in love with these men just as much as you would any male/female relationship. Yes it's hot and sexy, but at it's core Double Full is a love story. I fell in love with Colt and Jace and I know you will too. I am giving Double Full by one of my new favorite authors, Kindle Alexander, a whole bottle of wine!!
