New Review Down by Contact by Santino Hassell

Thursday, January 18, 2018

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’ shit 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…


I love this series and I was so excited to start reading Down by Contact!I was hooked from the beginning, I couldn't put it down!Santino delivers a captivating,intense and passionate story!

These two drive me crazy in a good way!They were full of tension and they were passionate.I couldn't get enough of these two. They start off arguing a lot and then they start have feelings!I love their smart dialogues, and it was fun reading about them.Simeon is such a sweetheart I loved him immediately, I can't say the same for Adrian.The truth is I didn't like him a lot at the beginning.

My only complaint is about the ending which felt a little bit rushed in my opinion.
Overall it was a great story, I'm excited for the next book.If you like the first books in the series you must read this one!
