I Dare You Fall Sports Spotlight on Love Hypothetically by Anne Tenino

What a fun flashback to showcase one of the older books from Anne Tenino’s Theta Alpha Gamma male/male college romance series where the guys are up for any shenanigans, spicy lovin’, and get a kick out of their small town college sports.

Well, all except a certain jock-hating tutor in Love, Hypothetically, enemies to lovers second chance romance…

Here’s a bit of what I had to say from my review for Delighted Reader:  I started back with this series for the second time as they release on audio.  This second installment of the Theta Alpha Gamma (TAG) series was interesting.  The main character was an absolute jerk in the first book and so I was oh so curious to see him get his own book.  This was a quick novella, but it was packed with quite an emotional punch along with some deeper considerations.

All in all, this was a story of a guy who desperately needed to come to terms with his past and heal before he could ever be happy.  I loved being along of this this.  The change in focus and feel between the stories in this series to match the characters’ personalities and situations was fantastic and I look forward to what comes next.  I heartily recommend this quirky, heartwarming, and passionate M/M New Adult Romance book/series.


About the Book

Hypothetical love can be a real pain in the ass…..

Paul’s been called many things—graduate student, humanities tutor, jock-hater, even broke—but “forgiving” isn’t one of them. When the new women’s softball coach at Calapooya College specifically requests Paul to tutor his athletes, Paul’s forced to put aside his strict “no athletes” policy for the sake of his paycheck.

Enter Trevor Gardiner, former Major League Baseball player and Paul’s high school boyfriend. Yeah, that one—the guy who sacrificed Paul for the safety of his closet and his future career. But Trevor’s come out and retired from baseball, and now he’s looking for forgiveness and a second chance.

There’s no earthly reason Paul should give him one, but he keeps letting the man state his case. And touch him. And take him sailing. The waters are far from smooth, though, and Paul says awful things to Trevor he isn’t sure he means. Now Paul has to decide: apologize and forgive Trevor for everything, or chalk it up as revenge and move on.

About the Author

Catalyzed by her discovery of LGBTQ romance, Anne Tenino left the lucrative fields of art history, nonprofit fundraising, and domestic engineering (in that order) to follow her dream of become a starving romance author. For good or ill, her snarky, silly, quasi-British sense of humor came along for the ride. 

Anne applies her particular blend of romance, comedy, and gay protagonists to contemporary, sci-fi, and paranormal tales. Her works have won many awards; her novel, Frat Boy and Toppy, is frequently referred to as a gay romance classic; she’s been featured in RT Book Reviews magazine; she holds the position of VP of Programming at her local RWA chapter; and she’s achieved bestseller status on Amazon’s gay romance list. 

Born and raised in Oregon, Anne now lives in Portland with her family, who have all taken a sacred oath never to read her books. When not crocheting genitalia, growing tomatoes, driving teenagers around, or cooking something obscure, she can be found at her computer, procrastinating. Possibly while also lying on the couch, eating bonbons.

Frat Boy and Toppy sounds familiar Sophia. Didn’t you review that one? I’ve not heard of Live, Hypothetically but it does sound good.

I have a horrible memory. The worse. However the name of the book was so unique. So it stuck with me I guess.
