Butler Shay sucks.
He'll tell you that the second you meet him, because as unscrupulous as he is, he's not a liar. He doesn't have time for games or feelings. He's going to go pro one day and that means complete focus on football.
No distractions. No infatuations.
That's the rule.
But there's this girl....

Quality Narration Story Development & Construction
This Novella is an enjoyable 'class act' on many levels - engaging, meaningful, and well-told with depth and emotion and great narration by Matthew E Barry. The values and moral standards are however different to my own and the story was thus jarring on this level. I prefer in short a 'clean' story (minimal bad language and meaningful sex). The fact that I finished and enjoyed the book are however a testament to the quality standards across the board, It takes a lot more quality to draw one into a book outside of one's preferred genres.
A few comments: I cannot envisage any relationship being long-lasting or healthy for any party when based on jealousy, obsession, dependency and control. I prefer to believe that obsession with one's genitals to the level described would need to be overcome before a relationship could be balanced and meaningful. I would have liked more insights into the resolution of these issues between the characters. Of note, I would have liked clarification of what Butler and Brooklyn actually liked about one another aside from burning with obsessive physical desire which while flattering, does not by itself grow into something long-lasting and fulfilling.
Similarly unrealistic is a 19-year-old with strong assumptions about his biological father but did not ask any questions about him or desire to meet him. In addition, while his mother's totally selfish motives were explained, it was a brief and shallow outline that was not consistent with the 'good mother' persona in the rest of the book. More development of this theme would have perhaps resolved this.

This narrator brought the story to life. It was like this book was written just so he could perform it. The writing is great and I felt like the author captured a man’s point of view really well.

19Years Old..Unexpected Surprises
The hero, Butler, is 19, a freshman in college and there on a full ride for football. Football is his focus, except he is 19 and has 19 yr old hormones. He’s like most 19 yr olds, is good looking, funny and a football player. But he is a nice guy, this helps to like his character.
Brooklyn is a girl he meets in a bathroom .. they have a fun exchange and she gives him her number but he has to wait to call her.
POV is Butlers and he thinks about her.
What is enjoyable about this story is they both feel something for each other, but are careful not to jump into passion, but actually become friends.
A short short, but not not too short, with interesting secondary characters...issues that aren’t gone into too deeply, but is fun, sweet and interesting.
The narrator does a nice job, easy to listen to..
I received a free audiobook for an honest and voluntary review.
