Running Back to Him: I enjoyed this college story about a jock, Max, and his tutor and friends younger brother, Logan. I loved the chemistry between them. I am a sucker for childhood crush stories and who hasn't had a crush on one of their sibling's friends.

I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book.

I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book.

This seemed very high school rather than college romance. The characters were strong though and the story line good. Max was your typical jock questioning himself and also how everyone would react to the revelation of him being gay.
I didn't like Greg at all and wondered about his involvement in the book I think the story could have been told without him. He didnt actually bring anything to the book. Even his threat didn't do much.

A sweet and beautiful short story. The story line was strong and very well written. The characters were well developed and very believable. Max was a junior in college and a valuable football player. He always straddled the line of academic probation and football. His coach ordered him to get a tutor or else. During freshman orientation he was one of the speakers. Then he saw Logan. Max had known Logan in high school always being there for Logan and warding off the bullies. Max always knew he fe ...more

Kind of junior highish(?), but a really sweet story.

This book was a really cute story, although rather idealistic regarding acceptance. I just loved Logan. His personality was so delightful, I could have fallen for him (lol). I loved the way he had confidence in the bedroom, while still being very shy in public. I liked Max, but I could never get a picture of him in my mind. His character was a bit too fluffy (for want of a better word). Cute story though.

If you are looking for a romance filled with love and acceptance then this is a must read. Very little drama quite a bit of angst and longing with an hea that will make your hopeless romantic soul sigh! O and of course the hot as hell sex scenes spice it up just enough to make your blood zing. Happy reading and thank you Mr. Hunter for sharing your words!
