Alexander Bryant has
lived his entire life making everyone else happy. After meeting Lincoln, will
he have the courage to finally do what makes him happy?
Alexander – I like
to imagine myself a rebel – an ass-kicker that takes what he wants regardless
of what others think. I make my own path and flip off the people who don’t
agree. I laugh in the face of conflict. Nobody tells me what to do.
everything about me is a lie – past, present, and future. The Bryant name
requires certain things and all my decisions are based on those requirements. I
like football, but the family name demands I love it. I want to be an artist,
but the family name demands I be a lawyer. The family demands I fall in love
with a nice girl, but I’m falling for, well, the opposite of nice AND girl. I’m
a coward and a liar.
Lincoln – I like to
imagine myself a loner – a cold heartless bastard that takes what he wants. I
lived the biggest part of my life with parents that were ashamed of me for more
reasons that one could begin to count, so I trust no one.
I have a low
tolerance for bullshit and hate liars.
So why did I go and
fall in love with the biggest liar of them all?
So, this was my first T.S. McKinney book and I
loved it. I was in the mood for a good M/M romance and Touchdown surpassed my
expectations. I loved the characters and the emotional turmoil that both went
through. Their desires and pre-destined futures are constantly question for
what they are supposed to do and what they truly want to do.
Alexander is exactly what the blurb describes, a
young man who follows his family’s rules, wants and traditions to the letter….even
if it is the furthest from what he wants to do. He plays football like his
father and grandfather did and he’s being groomed to go to law school and be a lawyer….just
like his father and grandfather. He feels he’s living a lie, which just
multiplies when he meets Lincoln. He’s confused by the attraction and the
feelings that Lincoln stirs, but he can’t stop thinking about him.
Lincoln is completely enamored with Alexander,
the star quarterback for the local college, from the moment he sees him. Not
that Lincoln watches football, but he loved Alexander’s sexy body and his
responsiveness... Even though Lincoln can tell that Alexander is fighting all
his feelings. Lincoln can see the turmoil in Alexander’s eyes and as much as he
knows he should walk away, he can’t.
There was some super hot scene’s between these
two and some super over bearing family members that get involved. The whole façade
that Alexander has perfected starts to crumble and he has to decide what he is
going to stand up for. I was really surprised and proud by his decision, but
also really surprised by Lincoln’s reaction as well. I loved their dynamic and
their story. I would definitely read another T.S. McKinney book. Instant
