Out in Time is a very sweet, short and sexy m/m novella about rising football star, Wade, and photographer, Heath.

Wade and Heath have been friends for a while now. Heath is openly gay. He’s always been who he is and he’s okay with that. He’s had feelings for Wade for a while now, but Wade is his friend. He knows Wade doesn’t judge him, he’s not that way, but he’s terrified to let his feelings show. Wade is a straight football player. He just can’t go there.

That was the end?



That can't be the end.

WHAT?

Well, fuck.



The HFN is there, but I want MORE. I NEED more. This is set up for a sequel (I hope).

Despite the short length, this novella just oozes sweetness and romance.



The story takes place over a couple days when two college boys who've been casual friends for a long time discover they are on the same wavelength in more ways than one.

Take one sexy, Southern quarterback who loves football almost as much as he loves his mama.

Wade and Heath are friendly with each other, but not best friends. They know each other for years when they met at a support group for LGBTA.

His family doesn’t know about his sexual preferences, but he wants to tell them the truth ASAP. He never had a girlfriend or a boyfriend in his 22 years. All he ever wanted is to play football. He wants to co

"I dare you to kiss me, Wade."




Well, this was a cute m/m novella. The story follows Wade Truman, a football athlete who just signed a contract that will put him more in the spotlight. All he has ever wanted to do was play the sport that he loves. Unfortunately, that also means having to hide who he is for a while. Then we have Heath Taylor who is an openly gay friend of sorts. They aren't really the closest of friends and they don't really hang out outside of the LGBTA gatherings they

BUT that end. One of my biggest pet peeves is an abrupt ending. This could've been a 5 star read if it weren't for that. It was so good I just wanted more story. I kind of felt a bit cheated. It literally just ended. Really hoping there will be a longer book 2.

This is a great filler book and one I recommend. It was a quick, light, sexy read. 3.75 Enjoyable Stars. *Fingers crossed we'll get more o

There was SO much about this story I loved and only one thing I didn’t. Considering the one thing I didn’t was the fact that I really wasn’t ready for it be over and I wanted more, I’d say that’s pretty damn good. I would say that going in, keep in mind the story ends with a super optimistic HFN and not necessarily a rock solid HEA you’ll be prepped. It made sense actually because anything else wouldn’t have fit with the characters and in order to complete the HEA the book would have to be three ...more

POSSIBLE SPOILERS AHEAD. DON'T GIVE ME THAT LOOK! YOU WERE WARNED! JEEZ, SOME PEOPLE...

I'm not a huge fan of short stories. I think I've said that before. It just never seems to be enough story for me or enough character development for me to care about the people in the book. That is why I very seldom read them but, when I do, it's only because I either like the author or the book has gotten high ratings, like this one has. I'm so glad I took a chance on this one. I loved the story and the guys

His friend and co-worker at the student newspaper, MC Heath, has a job secured at a newspaper in New York.

Out in Time is hot & sweet tale of Wade Truman, star college QB who is set to play in the NFL come graduation and Heath Taylor, photographer who is secretly crushing on the ‘straight’ QB.

While Wade and Heath head out of town to interview a recently out former football player for the school paper, Wade decides it’s time to come clean with Heath about his feelings. He had it all worked out in his head. His sexuality came second to everything else, but he didn’t want to spend the rest of his l

Um, is there going to be a second book? Because, that ending? No.

I really liked it aside from the end. I think it was honest. It had a good message. It wasn't stupid and it was hot.

Apparently I have a thing for college age gay virgins. Like hardcore. This might be a thing, I should start hanging out like the perv I am at LBGT meetings at Georgetown or George Mason. Give them a disability and it would drive me over the edge, so yeah adding Gallaudet right to the list.

This shit had me all kinds of giddy & turned on. Two glorious days of boy on boy fucking. Bring on the sequel….

I just couldn't put this book down. It was so addictive. Heath and Wade were just so adorable together. They couldn't be more opposite in some of the things that they enjoyed in their personal lives, yet somehow they just fitted perfectly together. I was voting for them all the way.

The story flows perfectly. There is no unnecessary fluff added to make to story longer and drawn out. It got straight down to business. Everything I read fitted perfectly into the story. I'm missing it already.

This was a small read, however Grey Cole managed to pack some big emotions into her story of Heath and Wade. Letting them learn about each other for the first half of the book and explore each other for the second half.

When reading a M/M romance I expect the same things I do from a M/F romance. No insta-love and I always want the good guy to win. In my mind Wade was the "good" guy, not that Heath was bad however. Wade just was a bit more innocent in my mind. Wade is a college ball player on the

I’m a bit obsessed with m/m romance. Throw in football, advocacy, sweet guys, and I’m hooked. Out in Time by Grey Cole is a dual POV novella. Our heroes have distinctly different voices, and it was great to get inside their heads.

We first meet Wade Truman who happens to be one of the nicest and most genuine characters I’ve ever read. He’s kind, blonde, generous, thoughtful, smart, southern, and dreamy. Did I mention he’s a star quarterback? Wade is on a trip for his college paper to interview a

I absolutely loved this book from the first page as I started to read it. What made it love at first read well I'll tell you because after the first few words from Wade Truman's mouth I just knew I was going to love this sweet, warm, considerate gentleman. So the story begins that Wade who has always admired Heath Taylor because of his openness about his sexuality and what he wants in a relationship that Wade knows isn't in the cards for him now. True to form Wade wants

I just finished this novella and I'm sitting here thinking I need more!!!! There is no cliff hanger BUT there is so much more story that can be told and I'm addicted and invested in Wade and Heaths story and I need and want more pretty please.

This was a beautiful story about two men denying their feelings for each other for completely different reasons. However when they do come together the chemistry is off the charts and they fit so well. You will fall in love with both men, and this novella

Acceptance. It is a hard word to comprehend. It seems so easy on the outside, but there is always that burning feeling on the inside that leaves us longing for more, knowing that it is not as easy as the definition portrays it to be. To be able to tell the world who you are and not be judged by their reaction. To be free to admit what you have known for many years with out standing in judgment by so many. This book is an eye opening experience. Not only in one finding acceptance within his how h ...more

I absolutely loved this story, what more can I say. It's the perfect love story with the added twist of acceptance. A lot of the story takes place in one day, but they have a history that is shared throughout the book. Heath and Wade have secretly had feelings for each other for a long time. The dynamics between the two was amazing. You could feel the sexual tension between them, even if they didn't express their feelings until this trip.

The timing was wrong, at least Wade thinks it is. Until he

Stars: 4.5 .5 Warning: This book will not be for everyone it is a M/M genre so you have been warned. Now where do I start? I loved "Out In Time". There were a couple of places where I felt I just wish they could live there life out in the open. I do understand there are so many people not accepting of people being gay and their reasons for not wanting to be out of the closet. excerpt from the book " Being different and unaccepted comes with its own self-imposed hatred and denial, but when someth ...more

Grey Cole always dreamt of a book that featured hot male-on-male action that grew to encompass one lucky woman. Okay … maybe Grey really dreamt of this scenario playing out in real life and then decided to purge all those dirty thoughts onto the page.
