Making Sense of Leadership: Exploring the Five Key Roles Used by Effective Leaders gNd build Because of that I also tend to read books that focus on the beginnings of a romance This book doesn t The MCset together almost as soon as they meet and the whole book is really about exploring their relationship and navigating the sports world together as a couple over the course of YEARS It is about their ups and downs their struggles at being closeted and what baseball means to them I liked the beginning of this book but I didn t love it until 50% or so These characters rew on me so much and my relationship with them blossomed as I read I ot really attached to Matt and Iggy love that name and I was on the edge of my seat emotionally speaking as everything went down towards the end of the book By 75% I just couldn t put the book down and I upgraded my review by a whole star That isn t to say that this book would be for everyone There is a lot of sports content so if you find sports talk to be very boring you might not love this one However even as a non fan of baseball I found it to be an exciting nicely paced read It never Gandhi Churchill: The Epic Rivalry that Destroyed an Empire and Forged Our Age got too dry for me which I wasn t expecting I also loved the New York setting As someone who lives just 15 miles from NYC I felt a lot of familiarity with this story The characters and the setting felt like home to me so it was easy for me to slide right into the story I just can t stopI really really liked this story which I don t usually say about sports romances It was a journey through a long term relationship from start to HEA and I was than happy too on that ride with Iggy and Matt Copy provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review One of my

two masculine but incredibly tender hearted MCs who over the span of four years explore their love of baseball and each other while handling their secret affair with their family friends fans and the press It wasn t all wine and roses and smooth sailing for these two as I had read in a few reviews They dealt with some pretty heavy angst but they dealt with it as a team and that made it so much easier to handle when all I really wanted was a feel The Lives of Stay-at-Home Fathers: Masculinity, Carework and Fatherhood in the United States good romance Iggy and Matt made my heart sing and were beautiful together I literally cried tears of joy during the last 4 pages of the book It made me ridiculously happyIf you are looking for a lighter romance with a touch of angst that our heroes deal
