I’ve just re-read this. It’s been many years since I read it the first time and I wasn’t quite sure if it was the one I remembered or if the one I was thinking of actually was Mary Calmes’s Steamroller. It was Caught Running that flitted around in my mind.
This is an old book, at least if we’re talking books in the M/M genre. It was published by Dreamspinner back in 2007, and if I’m not wrong, I think Dreampsinner started 2007, so we’re back in the cradle here LOL.
I still like this story, though the epithets drive me a little crazy, but it’s fun to see that even the ‘big names’ develop their writing style.
This is a story about how the role you had in high school follows you into your adult life. Both Brandon and Jake went to the school they’re now teaching in, and they’re still expected to be the nerd and the jock, only the roles don’t fit anymore, and the attraction between them grows as they’re working together.
It’s sweet, and I’m glad I read it again.
Ten years after graduation, Jake “the jock” Campbell and Brandon “the nerd” Bartlett are teaching at their old high school and still living in separate worlds. When Brandon is thrown into a coaching job on Jake’s baseball team, they find themselves learning more about each other than they’d ever expected.
High school is all about image, even for the teachers. Brandon and Jake have to get past their preconceived notions to find the friendship needed to work together. And somewhere along the way, they discover that perceptions can always change for the better.
