Review - The Front Runner by Patricia Neal Warren
This 40 year-old classic deserves to be read, to see how much as changed, and how much hasn’t. While gay men in the USA no longer have to fear being arrested for simply being gay, the sports world is still full of homophobia and discrimination.

Review - The Dreyfus Affair
Major league shortstop Randy Dreyfus has a problem. The blond haired blue eyed all American hero with a hot wife and two kids realizes he has an obsession with his team-mate, second-baseman D.J.

Yet Randy can’t get D.J. out of his mind and refuses to ignore the pull of the other man.
