The Lives of Remy and Michael: Book Two
A CalPac Crew Story

I thought life after high school would be easier. I’d go to California Pacific for a year while I got a handle on my HIV, then after Michael graduated from high school, we’d blast out of here for colleges—and life—on the East Coast. Then I visited Boston and everything changed. I realized I like CalPac. Turns out, Boston didn’t have anything for me beyond one of the biggest regattas in North America.

Life grew more complicated when I got home. I couldn’t find a way to tell Michael that I’d just blown our plan for our lives out of the water. Then my CalPac coaches dropped a bomb on me. Those rowing officials who’d been watching me? They were recruiters for the national team, and my coaches wanted me to try out. They’d even let Lodestone coach me. Now I have to choose, school or crew, CalPac or Michael, and I still haven’t told Michael I can’t transfer. Is there even a place for Michael in my life? Somehow we have to withstand training at the highest levels and having different goals. Will love hold us together… or tear us apart?

Il giocatore di football del college Clark Stevens è un wide receiver popolare con un potenziale contratto nella NFL, ma ha qualche problema: una ragazza gelosa, un padre dispotico e dalla mente ristretta, un deficit dell’attenzione e un’attrazione potente e inaspettata per l’ortopedico, maschio, che gli cura un osso rotto.

Il dottor Jody Williams sta ricevendo dei segnali davvero contraddittori. Non può ignorare quanto desidera Clark, perché è ovvio che il giocatore prova lo stesso per lui. Per il medico, gay dichiarato e orgoglioso di esserlo, la soluzione sembra molto semplice. Per Clark, invece, non lo è. Il suo mondo non è tollerante e gli ostacoli che ha affrontato lo hanno portato a negare la sua sessualità per anni.

È il Super Bowl dei disastri, non importa da che punto di vista lo si guardi. Alla fine, Clark deve decidere se continuare con l’unica vita che ha sempre conosciuto o se cogliere l’occasione di viverne una nuova con Jody.

Es fácil ser cínico cuando la vida no está de tu lado.

Cole Reid ha sido un excluido social desde los quince años, cuando el equipo de béisbol del instituto lo sacó del armario.
