SYNOPSIS:

Up and coming football hero, Colt Michaels, makes a Hail Mary pass one night in the college locker room that results in the hottest, sexiest five days of his young life. However, interference after the play has him hiding his past and burying his future in the bottom of a bottle. While Colt seems to have it all, looks can be deceiving especially when you're trapped so far in a closet that you can't see your way out. When ten years of living his expected fast-lane lifestyle lands him engaged to his manipulative Russian supermodel girlfriend, he decides it's time to call a new play.

Jace Montgomery single-handily built the largest all-star cheerleading gym in the world, driven by a need to forget a life-altering encounter with a handsome quarterback a decade ago. His reputation as an excellent coach, hard-nosed business man, and savvy entrepreneur earned him respect in the sometimes catty world of competitive cheerleading. When Jace learns of his ex-lover's plans to marry, his heart executes a barrel roll and his carefully placed resolve tumbles down without a mat to absorb the shock. Can his island escape help him to finally let go of the past and move his life forward?



REVIEW:

There are books that stay with you long after you finish reading them and this is one of those stories. I'm still on cloud 9 and I finished the book yesterday afternoon at lunch, while working!  I couldn't put this wonderfully touching romance about Colton Michaels and Jace Montgomery down.  I've re-read the ending and even read the Bonus Chapter that Kindle wrote for Shh Moms Reading (linked to that chapter) several times since completing the book yesterday.  I can't get enough of these two.  Let me tell you why!

First, Colton Michaels a.k.a. Colt or as I like to think about him as a totally romantic, puddle worthy, panty melting male who is exactly the opposite of what you come to think about when you think of college football star Quarterbacks.  He's gorgeous obviously but it's the attention to details that have been paid toward Jace Montgomery since they were Freshmen in college that really melts my heart.  The man has never missed a thing about his favorite "cheer-boy" as they have traveled together all over the country for football games over the years.  

Second, Jace Montgomery a.k.a. cheer-boy as Colt refers to him often and just melts your heart every time he does it.  Jace has been equally as obsessed with Colt for their entire college career but of course would never dare approach the very popular jock whom everyone believes to be straight.  The truth about his favorite jock is that he is a very hidden in the closet gay man who feels he can never come out to his own father let alone the NFL and the world and doesn't that just break Jace's little heart.  The bottom line becomes that he is willing to do whatever it takes once he gets his hands on his every fantasy come to life even if that means hiding their relationship even though he's been out his whole life.  

There are a few things I can't stand for in life and one of the biggest things is homophobia. The scenes where the word "fag" or "faggot" were said cut me like a knife.  I don't stand for this behavior and you better believe I'll whoop my son's own asses if I ever hear a sexually derogatory term mumbled from their mouths.  The pain that these two both land in for the better part of their lives because of oppression and fear of just being who they are cut me straight to the bone and broke my heart into a million pieces.  The Beatles sang "All You Need is Love" and that is what I live my life by and what I will teach my children.  Love is beautiful and these two were no exception. Every interaction between them I just felt myself pooling into my couch and getting that serious warm fuzzy feeling. I cried, I laughed, I blushed, I gasped and I smiled anytime these two were together!  

Now let's talk about the sex ... holy good lord the sex ... OFF THE CHARTS HOTTTTT!  I mean seriously folks, PAGE 1 ... SEX ... you go Kindle for doing it and a big fist bump from me because that was amazing!  When you are shouting, "Hell Yeah!" during the Prologue, you know the books is going to be incredible and Double Full was no exception.  In fact the story only got better from there.  Read it and you'll understand why.  Oh and definitely check out that Bonus Chapter linked above because the scene between Colt and Jace there is even hotter than what made it into the book.  But definitely don't read it until you've read Double Full (HUGE SPOILER)!

As the story progressed you get to meet and fall in love with Mitch Knox who is going to be the main character in Full Disclosure (A Nice Guy's Novel #2).  Double Full delivers it all. There were twists and turns, mystery and suspense and on top of all that, Jace and Colt's deliciously romantic and steamy love story. If I say much more I risk giving too much away, so I leave you with this ... I want EVERY SINGLE ONE OF YOU reading this to pick this one up.
