It was a simple kiss, but it was Blake Powell’s first from a man. It caused a moment of distraction, a wrong step, and a bone-shattering injury that put an early end to his promising baseball career. It could have been crushing, but instead it was the first step into a new life.
While nursing his injury, Blake met his new next-door neighbor Ian Chapman, a player-manager of a local gay softball team. Their first meeting was brief, but six months later, neither had forgotten that first encounter.
His baseball career is over, but Blake is soon a new star on Ian’s softball team, and Ian is teaching him new lessons about loving men. The future looks exceedingly bright until the game of baseball comes calling once again and Blake considers leaving his new life behind.
