Publisher's Summary

Matt Lancaster is the star quarterback at Bodine College, a small Southern Division II school with an ultra-conservative dean of athletics. Matt is also very much in the closet, and he thinks he’s kept his secret well hidden, until his best friends take him to a happy endings massage parlor and request a male masseuse for him.

In walks Trevor Kim, a gorgeous, pierced, tattooed fellow Bodine student who does massages - without happy endings - to pay for school after his family kicked him out for being gay. Trevor takes one look at Matt and breaks all his own rules about mixing business with pleasure.

Matt needs to keep his scholarship, win the National Championship, and survive his asshole father. Instead, he falls in love. Trevor needs to accept that the football god is meant to end up with him rather than a perky cheerleader. It’s time for a "happily ever after" for both of them.

Loved it !

So hot and heart warming too... Boudreau's narration was very well done and the story line was engaging to say the least!

I will definitely check out their other work. This is my first audible performance and am impressed by the quality.

Perfection! Just the right mix of everything

It's not often I want to give 5 stars. Usually, something slightly annoying prevents it, not this time. Some may argue the story is too perfect and I would counter and say "things can work out in this cynical world we live in". No new territory covered here, but the cast of characters have almost equal voices in Matt and Trevor's story. Friends behave like friends and people in love behave like people in love.

I think you would be hard-pressed to find something wrong with this story. Just enjoy it for what it is.

Romantic and Steamy

Most gay romance novels are either romantic or steamy. This was both! the gay sex was even believable.

Please let there be a spin-off/sequel planned!

So much fun! Funny, angsty (goodness the angst!), and just plain adorable—I highly enjoyed this book. The narrator did a fantastic job as always, and I can’t wait to see what Mackenzie Lee comes up with next. Hopefully a sequel/ spin-off for some of the supporting characters?? *Cough*cough* Drew *cough* *cough* O’Donnell.

Surprisingly good

Being my first book in this category I must say I was pleasantly surprised. It is well-written and the performance is superb.

The story is captivating and a happy ending (no pun intended).

A major highlight of the book are the peripheral characters that give the story more depth and character.

Matt is GaGa for Trevor with eyeliner! <3

Normally, I’m not one for sports romance. In fact, I usually avoid them because I never got the appeal of football and such competitive field games. 🤷‍♀️ (When I say football here, I’m talking about American football. 😁) And I also stay way from New Adult romances because I always felt like it’s the awkward child between Young Adult and Adult novels. 😂 That being said, my my my, why did I wait this long to listen this gorgeous audio?!?! 😱


First of all, I really have to thank my awesome Goodreads friends for this audio because I purely bought this on mob mentality. 🤣 I mean everyone and their mothers are raving about this book so I was like, yeah, this is usually not my kinda book but I gotta buy it because well, everyone’s listening/reading it! 😁 And what can I say? It’s quite easy to seduce me. 😉 And also, the narrator is Greg Bordeaux aka Greg Tremblay who I adoooooooore so I thought it couldn’t go that horribly wrong! Man, it went so perfectly right! 👏 I looooved every single second listening this audio. 😍


A star quarterback deeply in the closet fell in love with the gorgeous guy who works at a happy-ending massage parlor after a chance encounter. Matt has so many reasons why he couldn’t come out of the closet and Trevor gets it. But he still broke his own rule of not dating closeted guys and he too fell in love with Matt. But when was the journey to a happy ending simple and smooth? (Totally pun intended! 😂👏) If Matt really wants to be with the guy he fell for the first time in his life, he has to be braver than ever to fight for a future for both Trevor and himself. Because there’s always a rainbow lining in the end for those who are brave enough to cross the bridge. 😌


The story itself isn’t that quite unique or unheard of, but the way Mackenzie Blair wrote this story was magical, mesmerizing and enrapturing. 🥰 I was in love from the very first chapter. 😍 And that might also have to do with the fact that I have oil fetish. Lol 😂👏 But anyhow, it was lovely to witness how Matt became a full-blown butterfly from a closeted cocooned caterpillar. 😌 And awwwwww ... I love Trevor Kim! 😍 Our edgy Asian math genius! He’s so supportive, loving and understanding! He really is the perfect boyfriend for Matt. And the smut in this audio!!! I got multiple eargasms from Greg Tremblay’s awesome, seductive narration!!! 😁 That was one mothaf**king smoking hot audio! Sizzzzzzzling!!! 🔥🔥🔥 And that ending couldn’t be more perfect. I’m all gooey after that epilogue. So sweet and perfect! 😍💜 My only fear is that this is Mackenzie Blair’s only published book/audio so I’m really afraid that she might not write anymore. Hopefully she’d see my review and get some encouragements from how much the readers love her book/audio. 😊 Highly highly recommended! 👍 Soooooo worth that Audible credit! 😍💙

Great!

I've read MANY gay sports romances, some better than others. This one is the one I believe captures the struggle in the most convincing way. It's a sexy story but still full of emotion and tenderness. I was disappointed that this book was not available to add to my Amazon fire eBook collection and found that this is the only book written so far by the writer, but i will definitely keep my eyes peeled for more. It should also be mentioned that the narration is excellent, he acts out the scenes dynamically and effectively. Thumbs up all around!

A Fun Story with All the Right Elements

What a great story. I was a bit fearful at first that it might be more sex than my lady ears want d to hear, but it was really great. It was sexy and loving, and don't we all want happy endings? A great story line with the right elements. Well narrated, and eye opening!

A good mix

This story is both hot, sexy and romantic at the same time. Was a very good listen.
