Will Carroll had a rough few years in high school after being dubbed “the only gay kid at Randolph High.” His senior year all he wants is to get through and leave his small football obsessed town forever. A chance encounter with the school’s star quarterback, however, might change those plans.
Jake Bryant knew what he wanted, a place in the pros. He was good enough and willing to do what he needed to. But life plays funny tricks and Jake finds himself obsessed with someone he shouldn’t even acknowledge. Hopefully his teammates and coach won't find out until he can get his mind back on track.
As a former football pro, Coach Eilertsen wants to stay in the game by being the coach who discovers the next Manning or Brady. Is this the year? Or will unknown elements ruin his plans? The coach also harbors a big secret that could kill his new career if it got out. Not one to take failure mildly, Eilertsen has no problem destroying anything in his path to get what he wants and keep his privacy.

This is a short story but it is a really good start to this series.
If I had to describe this book it would be a book I would describe as a wake up call book.
Will knows he is gay. And being gay in his high school is not easy. He is the only gay kid as far as he knows and he is not a jock to boot. So Will is constantly picked on in this highly football school.
Jake is the quarterback of the football team. He has never done anything with a guy before. As a matter of fact he has had a girlfriend since he was a freshman. So why is it that he is now noticing Will more and more? He could never tell anyone though because if he did then he would make himself as much of a target as Will is. Does not matter he is the quarterback and star player for the football team.
Coach Eilertsen is a former football player turned high school coach. Coach has some secrets of his own and very few know what those are. Coach is determined to make Keith, Jake and Bobby star football players and he will go to extreme means to get here.
What is going to happen when all these separate worlds collide?
This was a great read. I enjoyed it and look forward to the next book in this series to see exactly what is going to happen next. I have some ideas but I am not sure if they are right or not. Cannot wait to see if my predictions will come true for all these men.
