#2  Robbie & Paul

Blurb

Sometimes the toughest thing to have faith in is yourself.

The first time Paul Dyson met Robbie Rhodes, they ended up naked in Robbie’s bed. The last time they met, on the ice the morning after, Paul punched Robbie in the face and called him something he’d rather not repeat.

Two years later, they’re teammates on the Seattle Thunder hockey team.

Being gay is wrong, unnatural, and there is no room for them in his world. Paul’s heard that his whole life. So when it hits him that he is gay, he does the only thing he can: he shoves himself so deep in the closet he would need a map to find his way out again.

When the chance to fulfill his lifelong dream comes along, Paul can’t say no, even if it forces him to share hotel rooms with the only man he can’t resist. It doesn’t take long for Paul to give into temptation and find himself falling in love with his brilliant, caring teammate.

But as much as he cares for Paul, Robbie is finding it harder and harder to justify hiding who he is. It goes against everything he was taught was right. He feels like he has a duty to come out to the public. He’d be the first out gay pro-hockey player.

If Paul wants to be with Robbie, he will have to turn his back on his family and everything he’s believed in. If Robbie wants to be will Paul, he’ll have to do the same.

It’s going to take them a lot of faith to find their way together in this shiny new world.

Country Boy is a love story about figuring out who you are, who you want to be, and how to get there. It contains sweet hockey plays, a 1976 Corvette Stingray, fancy underwear, and the journey of a lifetime.

Follow the money or follow your heart? Either way, you lose.

When a blown tire leads directly to mind-blowing sex with a white knight named Dakota, pro-hockey player Bryce Lowery discovers he is most definitely gay.

Being with Dakota opens up a whole new world. Bryce can’t imagine life without him. But he refuses to be Bryce’s dirty little secret. If he wants to keep Dakota, he’s either going to have to come out publicly or retire and walk away from millions of dollars.

Bryce Lowery feels like the answer to all of Dakota’s prayers. But is Dakota willing to leave the only life he’s ever known only to be thrust into the spotlight as the boyfriend of the first out gay hockey player? Would their relationship even survive it? He’ll lose Bryce if doesn’t because Bryce will leave eventually. No one would turn down millions of dollars for a nobody with nothing.

City Boy is a first time gay, fish out of water, May/December love story with a happy ending. It features snarky siblings, a dirty-talking farmer, lots of food, and big choices. (No poultry was harmed in the making of this book.)

Valerie’s Reviews

City Boy

I was hooked on this book from the beginning. The secondary characters are wonderful, but Bryce and Dakota steal the show. It was the cutest meet I’ve read about in a long time, and then their relationship bloomed from there. There is a lot going in on in the book and I don’t want to give anything away, but the conflict between the two was original, and I loved how by the end of the book, both Bryce and Dakota grew from their experiences. It was a wonderful read that I highly recommend!

Country Boy

First off, I have to say that I loved both Robbie and Paul and how their relationship developed. But it’s important to recognize that there is an important part of the story that might make some uncomfortable. While most books that have part of religious fanaticism puts me off a book, I found that with Paul’s history and the way he was raised, it was an important facet of Paul’s life and how it affected his relationship with Robbie.

Paul and Robbie had met two years previous to when the story starts, during a particularly low period in Paul’s life, and the end of their short acquaintance ended badly. So did their first meeting years after. But as Robbie started to understand what Paul was going through at that time, they started a tentative friendship. But their underlying attraction simmered in the background.

As they started a relationship, of sorts, Paul’s issues with his past would rear up and Robbie would be there for him. By using reason and most of all their feelings for each other as barriers to the hate that was taught to him since he was a small child, Robbie would listen to Paul and most of all, be there for him as he worked through his feelings versus what he was taught.

I loved how Paul and his father, who is a very big antagonist in the beginning of the book, come to a realization together. And Paul finds his strength and determination to stand up with Robbie. It’s a wonderful story and an important one to read!
