Book Synopsis

Two rival football players begin a game with higher stakes than the Super Bowl in this steamy romance from the author of Illegal Contact.   

Simeon Boudreaux, the New York Barons’ golden-armed quarterback, is blessed with irresistible New Orleans charm and a face to melt your mama’s heart. He’s universally adored by fans and the media. Coming out as gay in solidarity with his teammate hasn’t harmed his reputation in the least—except for some social media taunting from rival linebacker Adrián Bravo.

Though they were once teammates, Adrián views Simeon as a traitor and the number-one name on the New Jersey Predators’ s**t list. When animosity between the two NFL players reaches a boiling point on the field, culminating in a dirty fist fight, they’re both benched for six games and sentenced to joint community service teaching sullen, Brooklyn teens how to play ball.

At first, they can barely stand to be in the same room, but running the camp forces them to shape up. With no choice but to work together, Simeon realizes Adrián is more than his alpha-jerk persona, and Adrián begins to question why he’s always had such strong feelings for the gorgeous QB…

Praise for Down by Contact and Santino Hassell

“Santino Hassell is writing football romance for a new generation…The dialogue is snappy…and the sex scenes are hot.”—NPR.org

"This is a deliciously dirty yet surprisingly sweet tale of two people who, in the end, want to love and be loved, whatever the obstacles might be. A sexy and satisfying look into the hearts and minds of unlikely lovers."--Kirkus Reviews

"Hassell’s raunchy, hypermasculine second Barons erotic romance (after Illegal Contact) is hotter than tempers on Super Bowl Sunday... The testosterone is balanced by thoughtful examinations of cultural differences and the effects of fame on relationships... [A] raw, beautifully told love story."--Publishers Weekly

    I loved this book! It was even better than the first. Simeon and Adrian were great together. I don't agree with his bigotry in the beginning but i'm glad he redeemed himself. Adrian is so cute! I loved how goofy he was. And once he accepted his feelings for Simeon, he was all in. I have a feeling Rocky's book is going to be next and i don't know how i feel about that. I loved the insight we got about him being a little nerdy, with his trivia facts and love for Harry Potter. But I HATE how bigoted and mean he is! Just because you're in denial is absolutely NO excuse for being hateful and literally hurting someone. So we'll see i guess. Loved this book though!
