    This story is a bit of a departure from the traditional closeted athlete story we read in MM It opens in a familiar way with Boone the college hockey goalie who is good enough for the NHL if he can only keep his grades up his wins freuent and his orientation invisible But the man who makes Boone fall out of the closet is a sparkly flamboyant figure skater And when Boone falls he lands very hard and without a safety netI enjoyed many aspects of this book My heart ached for Boone and the degree to which he was in a catch 22 where there was no way for him to come out of the situation with his life undamaged I liked Preston's flaming and his warmth and control And while the ending action was perhaps a bit much plot wise I did like the fact that the resolution of the story felt real than stereotypical MM view spoilerDespite the positive ending this story is in part a painful recognition of the damage done and potential lost in generations of people putting huge amounts of energy into hiding who they really are hide spoiler

    I was so wrong thinking this story was going to be mushy and funny for me it was sadAlso if you are looking for hot steamy sex scenes you won't find it here either When Boone finally came out of the closet the poor darling had no parents no hockey no money no car no future he wasn't strong enough to play mentally or physically he was a washed up hockey player with suicidal tendencies with a few friends besides a twink some lesbians a ueer pigskin player and Gunnery Sergeant Hillary he doesn't have anyone elsehis words no mineAfter all that I thought perhaps the ending was going to be really cute and mushy I was wrong view spoiler Boone was bashed by 6 homophobic guys right at the end he was save though hide spoiler

    LONG CHANGE by VL LoceyJune 26 2015Publisher Ellora's Cave approximate pages 70Romance Contemporary MM Sports Provided by Author via Promotion in Exchange for an Honest Review MY THOUGHTS Judging a Book by it's Cover Cute New Adult Conveys the Hockey and Figure Skating backgrounds clearly Synopsis is a smart match to the coverLooking Deeper First person POV from Boone's perspective Novella under 100 pages An elite private college Boone's the deeply closeted hockey player son of a bigoted alumni that is never uite satisfied with Boone's accomplishments as it is Preston is a figure skating college invitee that just won the hockey mascot position They are complete opposites I absolutely loved the real and authentic feel of Boone and Preston from their first meeting until the final scene They really are two polar parts of a whole The secondary characters had minor but significant roles that were deeply emotional and impactful Never did I want to laugh and cry in the paragraph The plot progression was steady and built up smoothly For being an EC Erotica I felt that the sexual content was low and tame The conflicts were eye opening and often heartbreaking not all of them get resolved There are surprises than predictability in fact several times in this short story am I shocked by an event The conclusion felt cut off and entirely too abrupt I actually felt cheated and betrayed that it ended like it did I'm not saying it left things unfinished or with a cliffhanger but I really did want NEED was justice serve? Did they follow plans after graduation? Did the haters remain haters? I honestly think that if the conclusion were a bit fulfilling it would have scored high enough to be a 5 star novellaThis novella is NOT all rainbows and rose tinted glasses If that's what you want look elsewhere This is one of the realistic short stories filled with raw emotion that really tears at your heart Heat Level 375 Score 44 Stars 4 if I could award 12 stars 45 REVIEWER INFO Tina J Happily Ever ChapterThis review can be found in it's entirety or reformatted by myself to fit the guidelines imposed at any or all of the following locations determined by availability Happily Ever Chapter Tangled Hearts and Boxer Briefs Smut Book Junkie Book Reviews Goodreads Netgalley Edelweiss BN Kobo iTunes Copies may also be distributed to the publishers authors andor promoters depending on reuirements at the time

    Another great read by VL Locey Not up to her usual flair but still a great readThis was a very short read So much could have been added to the story Seemed a bit rushed but did have a few surprises along the way With it being so short I did not really have time to develop a relationship with the characters This was written as a single POV This would have benefited from having Preston's pov as well I think That would have added depth to the story and helped us along with the journey of Boone and Preston This was your typical Jock meets Boy Jock hiding in the closet but privately lusts for Boy Boy is out and proud Jock comes out in big blow up Like I said though there where a few surprises along the wayI would not say that this ended in a HEA but did in a HFN No major declarations shouting from the roof tops of un dieing love nothing like that There were conversations on what they would do together after college but that is as far as it went Maybe it was left hanging so that there could be books containing these two and I would be happy with that Actually than happy I would be giddy as a lil school girl I want to know about these two I want to see them get their HEA I'll keep my fingers crossedGood story line descriptions to details were nice and what we got to know about the characters were done well but could have used I wanted to become emotionally attached to them I did have one teary eyed moment near the end but not heart twinge moments Oh and as for the sexy bits very very mild Not the normal heat that I am used to seeing from one of her books I can however understand her reasoning why as I read this book so I wasn't too disappointed I love her work I think she is fanfreakintastic but this one to me was not one of her best works of art Is that going to stop me from enjoying her absolutely not She has written so many wonderful things and I look forward to reading from herSoWould I recommend this book? Yes Of course It's VL LoceyWould I read from this author? Let me thinkYES She is a one of my favorite MM authors Sassy Beta Reading Reviewwwwfacebookcomsassybetareading

    Original PostReview Reuest Long Change by VL LoceyReview by multitaskingmommaMy Rating 5 of 5 StarsI never expected this to be as good as this turned out to be Yes the plot does revolve around one of the serious sides of life but the way this read it was real but light Not heartbreaking or traumatic This actually leaves this reader with a sense of hopeBoone is one badass hockey player He is even eyed for the nationals He is tough rough handsome cute young and strong Only thing not going for him he is emotionally unstable because he has hidden all his life and the stress of it all is finally catching up on him His world is about to change and he may not be prepared for it allPreston is an out and proud former figure skater who is not afraid to flaunt his sexuality He may come out a bit strong to the tender hearted and minded conservatives ahemahem but he is impossible not to love His flamboyance attracts the eyes of the willing and unwilling He is the one who will turn the eye of Boone and change his life foreverThis is a story of two young men whose physical disparities makes you conclude the bigger and huskier one is the stronger of the two This is a story that will show the readers that it may just be the smaller guy who has the heart of a dragon and can slay anyone they love and protect This is the story of how Preston became the protector of Boone who found himself at the crossroads and did not know whether to go on ahead or turn backLong Change is a romance novel but it is also too real to be really considered as one May I call it gritty? I would recommend this to readers who can be challenged to take their minds off the roses and look to the thorns of life Bonus the hockey was technically and lightly explained I actually began to understand how the game was playedNote Copy provided by Pride Promotions for an honest review

    45 Starscopy provided to Bayou Book Junkie by authorpublisher via Pride Promotions in exchange for an honest reviewI struggled with how many stars to give this book I LOVED the story and plot line I loved that it felt real and not everything was left wrapped up in a nice little bow uestions were left unanswered and Boone's state of mind is left in somewhat of a uestionable state Boone struggles with the fact that he is gay He is deep in the closet He knows his parents won't accept it and he his Hockey teammates will also not accept it He handles everything just fine until Preston the hot twink walks in to tryout as mascot He can't help the attraction and he tries to deny it but eventually falls into a very deep depression Preston is an out and proud former figure skater His family and friends accept him for who he is and he has no shame in his game While I did love the story I really didn't like the characters I didn't connect at ALL with them Well that's not exactly true the author eventually broke my heart with what Boone goes through Watching his struggles were heart wrenching and I grew to like and sympathize with himPreston is a different story He got on my last nerve and I couldn't take him most if the time All that being said I am giving the book 45 stars because it was well written It was captivating and gut wrenching I usually love my stories wrapped in a nice neat bow and double knotted for safety but it didn't bother me m the way this book ended It felt real and we get a HFN so that's good enough I enjoyed it I just wish I would have liked the characters and felt some type of chemistry and connection between them but maybe it was just me It was still a good book and recommend it
