    Adam and Colin they are so cute together the sex is minimal but boy is their first sexual encounter together an experience I could not stop laughing it was certainly memorable The rest of the team were engaging and fun especially the locker room scenes and the play on the field I thoroughly enjoyed this

    the ending was horrible it left so much hanging good book besides that though

    For an Italian reader Offside is a bit of a fantasy tale for two main reasons first of all soccer players in Italy are like heroes and like that they are high paid professionals with a huge following and in no way a favourite of the team could be easily exchanged like a pawn of a bigger game; second homosexuality is still a taboo

    WowThis story at first was a little slow but it didn't take too long to heat up Now MM smut lovers beware this book is not saturated by endless sex scenes but actually this story does offer a great story of being 'out' in professional sports

Titude Adam has no problem sharing with his new housemate and fellow center forward Colin Evets Colin is Adam’s only friend on the team but when Adam misinterprets Colin’s Midwestern charm for something he could end up ruining both their friendship and their careers As A. 35 starsWhen Adam Dumas finds out that he is being transferred into St Louis by his old team the LA Galaxy all he can think of is how to get out from there as soon as possible Until his eyes capture the form of his new roommate center forward Colin Evets and soon Adams struggles to make better impression because he realizes he can fall for the younger player Except oh Colin is not really gay isn t heI think it is the first story in realm of soccer that I have read Kudos for that Especially in the seems to be well research work into the world of soccer and MLS Division games I enjoy the scenes of practices and the relationship among the players I do wish to see action on the field though but this is from a woman who watched World Cup since 1990 lolUnfortunately I cannot seem to feel as emotionally connected to the characters MAYBE because while this story is written in 3rd person but the main narrator is Adam There is no perception from Colin so I kind of feel one sided

Summary Offside by Ryan Loveless

Dam struggles to make a better impression Colin tries to decide if the person he’s been showing the world is who he wants to be with Adam The pressure to win influences decisions both on the field and off as Adam and Colin discover how making the wrong move can be very rig. For an Italian reader Offside is a bit of a fantasy tale for two main reasons first of all soccer players in Italy are like heroes and like that they are high paid professionals with a huge following and in no way a favourite of the team could be easily exchanged like a pawn of a bigger game second homosexuality is still a taboo no one will admit there are gay soccer players in the Italian league and in no way a soccer player could come out without losing his team and everything else Said that I know the same is not abroad and I think that in the US soccer is a little brother sport of the bigger game like Football and Baseball maybe for this reason a soccer player has less pressure in comparison to other athletes and he is allowed freedom even to come out That is the point of this novel Adam is a not so young athlete true he is less than 30 years old but for someone who started his career when he was 15 years old he is an old player now who is kicked out from his team to let space to younger meat He has now a contract with a team in St Louis Missouri very far from Los Angeles not only on a miles distance but also on custom While Adam openly gay has some freedom in Los Angeles which is not the same in provincial St Louis Truth be told most of his troubles are not from him being gay but since he is the new guy in town Indeed the other team mates are mostly welcoming him and in one specific case Colin seems even interested in him as than a fellow soccer player Colin is way younger than Adam not only in age but also experience Sexual experience From what I gathered Colin is a virgin in every sense of the word and basically Adam is corrupting him The relationship between Colin and Adam is mostly sweet and even funny maybe even a little too much funny Colin fainting during sex not once but two times is maybe not so realistic but it adds a comic touch to the whole story Aside from that Colin and Adam don t meet many obstacles to their love story and Adam finds also support around him from friends colleagues and relatives That is again nice I realize that sometime I m a bit pessimistic but I don t find so many time such situation in today society even if we are in the XXI century But and I find this in the stories I read and than once authors and readers commented that that is their own experience like the same author in the author s bio of this novel so maybe it s possible and I m glad that it is
