Three compelling novelettes featuring accomplished college athletes developing their attractions and feelings for other sexy men.
Each young man must strip away his inhibitions and apprehensions to realize his full potential to authentically love the person he desires.
Baseball Star’s Gift: Intimate Awakening
Darius, an Italian-American gay actor with smoldering good looks, studies Brett, the down-to-earth and straightforward captain of the collegiate baseball team, to help him perfect his upcoming theatrical role as a sports star.
Uncovering Machismo: Virile and Tender Men
The naked bike ride event on the summer solstice, brazenly and colorfully celebrating enlightenment and fertility with nude body painting, brings divergent college sport stars together. Giovanni, a straight wrestling champion, is reeling from an unexpected defeat and brutal disgrace and humiliation in the media. Pablo, a gay goalkeeper on the university’s soccer team, can share shrewd insights and profoundly help Giovanni, but he has challenges of his own and resists intimacy.
Antonio must strip away his inhibitions to grasp his feelings for another player on the college football team. His friends and teammates, Joe and Kelvin, are similarly devoted to their athletic careers, not their paths of individual self-discovery. But each of these young men may be brave enough to follow their hearts if they can overcome challenges to their identities.
