Description

One glance is all it takes to bring his defences crashing down...

Seventeen-year-old Davey has never made friends easily. Shy, geeky, crippled with social anxiety, he feels isolated from his peers, and only his position as defender for the school football team fills the void of loneliness. On the pitch, his deft footwork has earned him the respect and acceptance of his squad, though at a price. Desperate to hold onto this camaraderie, Davey conceals the truth from everyone, even his own family.

Then, during the annual Brookshire football tournament, his eyes meet those of a rival player across the field and a spark flares between them, one neither boy can deny. Adam is everything Davey longs to be - confident, popular, comfortable with his sexuality. Davey aches to explore their connection, to discover where it might lead, but how can he follow his heart and risk rejection by his teammates, the closest thing to friends he has ever known?

Praise for Defensive Play:

"A cute story, heartwarming and romantic, and with immediate emotional impact." - Amy Lane, author of The Locker Room "Such a sweet slice of real life romance, and I enjoyed every minute." - Dawn Sister, author of A Springful of Winters
