Nixon Cross isn’t wired to share his life with anyone. He’d considered a relationship once, but after the one man patient enough to put up with all his quirks shut him down, he committed all of his energy to football and helping his players. Now, one of his players need more help than Nixon can provide and his former flame is the one man who will know what to do.
Retired NAFL player Lincoln Sims had no choice but to stay in the closet; he was a professional athlete at a time when it was impossible to be honest about his sexuality. After retiring, he confessed his secret to his wife and son because he was tired of living a lie. Now, he’s ready to live his life. Nixon Cross is the man he left behind but could never forget.
Can these men find a way to recover from their false start years earlier?
False Start by Sloan Johnson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I am in love with Sloan's books. She won me over with her Homerun series but I'm thinking I might just love this series more. And funny thing I don't like football, like at all. But these characters.... Nixon and Lincoln I'm all in with them.
I adored the first book but False Start pulled me in and I fell hard. I love that the characters were older, that's something we don't get a lot of and for me it was one of my favorite things about the book. Now don't get me wrong, it has a beautiful and at times heartbreaking story but the characters they are wonderful. The writing is fantastic and I'm extremely excited for what's next.
