Why I read it: Love KA Mitchell's books - love the Florida series. Pre-ordered and bumped to the top of the reading list as soon as it became available.
What it's about: For those who've read the earlier books in the series, Dylan Williams, Aaron Chase's brother (Collision Course). Dylan and his mirror twin Darryl are in Texas - Darryl is about to graduate from college and Dylan is a line cook at The Cheesecake Factory. Dylan is NOT GAY. Except, he sometimes trawls local gay hangout Webber Park and to get a blowjob. When Darryl cuts through the park one night, he is mistaken for Dylan and bashed.
Mike Aurietta witnesses the bashing, calls 911 and the ambulance and helps scare he bad guys off. He and Dylan meet in the hospital where Darryl is being treated.
Mike is a trainer at UT for the Longhorns. He's out to his friends and family but not at work, because he doesn't want the football players to worry about him checking them out or feeling them up when he's strapping a hamstring. And, this is Texas, where homophobia is strong.
Mike's gaydar pings with Dylan and there is instant attraction between the two. But Dylan is NOT GAY. Dylan feels pretty guilty for Darryl's circumstances and he's also struggling with Darryl pulling away from him - apart from one week in foster care early on, they've never been separated. As the family screw-up Dylan is pretty down on himself. He finds himself drawn to Mike, someone who doesn't share the family baggage. And having sex with Mike certainly relieves the tension. But Dylan is NOT GAY. Even though he likes buttsecks and blowjobs.
