This is the story of Demitri, one of the two brothers of Alec, the main characters of Side-Lined. Demitri is still mourning on the loss of good friend, but he has set his eyes on Aaron, the soccer coach. Demitri is strong and big, but has fragile feelings, he doesn't want to risk again to loose someone he loves, and so he takes Aaron at arm lenght. But phisycal desires are also strong and in the end Demitri has to take his chance to love and suffer again to gain a always forever type of relationship.
The story is romantic and not too much troubled. It flows smooth and fast. It's enjoyable. And book per book the series is becoming ever more a "gay happy community": all the coaches are gay, all the new student are also gay, all the characters you meet... I'm wondering what would they think Alec's parent, old fashion greeks, that two of their three strong sons are gay, or a new freshman when both the football coach than the soccer coach are gay...
But in the unrealistic setting Carol Lynne has built, she has also managed to make me wonder how the next story will be (the next is Rocco and I'm expecting this one, and then I have noticed also Liam and Bear...), so I will sure buy the next books in the series... I think Carol Lynne succeeded in her goal... entrapped me and other readers in her "gay happy community"!
Forbidden Freshman (Campus Cravings) by Carol Lynne
In the end of Off-Season we have known about Joe, the 35 years old psichiatric who cares about all the guys in the Campus Cravings series, and Rocco, the 18 years old son of old coach Williams.
Rocco is a very beautiful man, who has always cared for himself, so at 18 years old he his very mature and knows exactly what he wants, and what he wants is Joe, his father's friend. Joe can't deny the attraction, but he will do nothing to ruin his friendship with Coach Williams, above all cause he can't believe a beautiful boy like Rocco could be really interesting in him.
But when Rocco finds himself alone one more time, Joe finally accepts that he now is Rocco's family and eventually lover.
I expect more drama from this story and instead it's is smooth and enjoyable. The love between Rocco and Joe is sudden and forever, their life together also. The big gap in years between them is not still a problem, maybe in the future it could be, but in this book you will read only of the good moments of the couple.
As always in the end Carol Lynne introduces us to her next characters: Toby and Michael, probably Charlie, but I'm still waiting for Liam and Bear's story!...Continua
