An up-and-coming heavy metal singer and a martial artist desperate to join a top MMA gym must decide how hard they’re willing to fight—for their dreams and each other.
Max Diaz is firmly in the closet, and as unbearable as that’s becoming, he can’t risk his only remaining family—his brother, Tony—or his band Purple Method’s chance to make it big.
Rick Bernstein dreams of rising in the ranks of the MMA circuit and securing a training career at a top gym, but with rejections coming thick and fast and his financial future in dire jeopardy, starting a relationship is the last thing on his mind—especially with someone who isn’t out.
But when Purple Method returns to Elfinbrook after a six-month tour, one kiss changes everything. Now Max and Rick face decisions that will change both of their lives forever.
Sorry, this book was just a mess.
Max is the lead singer to a up and coming heavy metal band. And he is in the closet. And he is only 20.
Tony, his older brother, plays drums in the band and pretty much knows Max is gay, but is fearful that if he comes out he will be so miserable he will kill himself as a few other guys in bands he knows of.
But Tony isn’t concerned at all at the amount of drinking they all do. Especially Max who is only 20.
But then Max meets Rick, an MMA fighter. Max denies it for a bit, but then jumps in with both feet with a relationship with Rick. Who really doesn’t want a relationship. Oy.
And omg the pages and pages and pages describing the MMA fights…
And then someone in the band quits. But no big- Max can take over that instrument. Because if he can play guitar, playing slap bass is no big, right?
And then they get invited to play at clubs in England. But only Max knows and doesn’t tell the rest of the band until like 3 days before. WHAT???
Ooops, sorry, there was also some kind of jamboree where Max and his bff entered the bbq contest.
There’s more, of course there is. But seriously, this book was such a mess. I kept finding myself scrolling through Facebook when I should have been reading because it was just boring.
Don’t waste your time.
