Trevor Thorne has always played it safe.
He’s a ballplayer. The game has had his heart and soul since he was just a kid. He learned early on that living in the testosterone-fueled world of baseball meant living a lie. He couldn’t afford to be openly gay, not when he had his whole career ahead of him. But his days behind the plate are numbered and he’s tired, so damn tired of hiding who he is, and it’s becoming more and more difficult to deny himself what, and who, he wants.
Rodrigo Cruz is the opposite of safe.
He’s young, ballsy, and bold. Out and proud, Cruz has never shied away from going after what he wants. He wants a career as a big-league ballplayer, and he wants it on his own terms. No hiding his sexuality or his past but also no throwing himself at his beautiful, blue-eyed bunkmate. Not even if he suspects Trevor isn’t quite as straight as he claims.
Crossing that line, testing that theory, it could put his entire career at risk. If he swings for the fences and strikes out, he’ll always be that guy in the locker room who can’t keep it in his pants. But what if he’s right and they’re more than just teammates?
What if they’re soulmates?
Batter, Batter, Swing Batter. This is the first phrase that has always come to mind, either going to baseball games to see our favorite teams, watching our son play on so many teams starting at the age of 7, or reading one of my favorite genres. Author Jess Bryant definitely took her release Safe and knocked it out of the park.
It was so easy to connect with the story as well as the characters. The story was both a coming out as well as a moment of truth between teammates.
There was a mixture of funny jabs between friends, drunken word vomit of the mouth, hit and miss— both on and off the field. However, nothing compares to the extreme sexy playing going on behind closed doors.
These baseball players know how to play hard both on and off the diamond mount.
