Extremely polished sports romance

The Rainbow ClauseThe Rainbow Clause by Beth Bolden

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I’ve a feeling I was supposed to read something before this one but I rarely read M/F these days so I haven’t but I don’t think it really had a negative effect on my enjoyment of this one.

There’s nothing new here, it’s a typical ‘coming out’ sports romance between a bisexual football quarterback and a reporter but it’s done really well.

There’s a lot of polish to this one, which I note is a re-release, so I’m guessing it was cleaned up then.

I loved both Colin and Nick and I loved watching them fall in love, especially as Colin was a gay sex virgin and not hugely experience with any other sex either. He was sweet and eager to learn and incredibly passionate about everything Nick could teach him.

And cynical Nick, finding out his crush was bisexual and attracted to him was a delight as he fumbled his way through feelings and dilemmas about ethics and integrity while he fell in love with his interview subject.

The support characters helped to nicely round out this enjoyable read.
