    Simeon and Adri n are not friends They used to be But Simeon left the Predators for the Barons, and Adri n, not willing to acknowledge his attraction or feelings of betrayal, talked smack about Simeon nonstop first accusing Simeon of stealing the Predators play book, later bullying Simeon on social media with microaggressive comments about Simeon s sexuality The two get in each other s face at a preseason game, and the result is a six week suspension and forced togetherness as volunteers for the [...]

    Full review now posted 1 8 18 4 stars It was perfect He was perfect We were perfect together Adrian and Simeon are enemies on rival football teams They snark at each other during games, call each other out on social media and can t stand the sight of each other Simeon is a openly gay football player and Adrian seems to be anti gay When the two of them get into trouble on the field they are forced to spend time together working for a charity, where they both learn there is to the other than they [...]

    5 starsHonestly i don t think i can give Santino s books less than 5 stars, his characters and their stories feel so real to me I love the cover and i started picturing Simeon like that but when it came to the description it was different It bugged me a little but i got over it.He is described as golden brown skin, hazel eyes, dark russet colored hair and freckles, so i pictured this guy and all was fine.SimeonAdrian is latino with dimples, once i had my cast, the story was perfection.I loved ev [...]

    I absolutely loved book 1, and I was damn sure, I was gonna love book 2 as well I love it when I am right I loved this one even then I did book 1 which is saying something, because that one was pretty damn awesome as well This time it s Simeon s turn He and Adrian used to be on the same team, The Predators and they used to be friends That is until Simeon changed teams and joined The Barons Ever since, Adrian has been quite hostile towards him, especially sonce Simeon came out.This hostility esc [...]

    4.5 STARS Review Vanilla Spice BooksHomophobia is vile, there is no whitewashing it It attacks a person s choice of who they love and that in itself is evil Most of the MM books make it a theme one way or another but Santino Hassell always puts his own stamp on it Just take the setting of the book two players in one of the most hypermasculine sports and let them butt heads on a football field.On one side there is Adri n Bravo, who slams homophobic comments towards Simeon Boudreaux, who is the gu [...]

    Another solid story from Hassell was there any doubt The man can write.His dialogue is so authentic, and not just the slang, which is heavy handed here, but his overall dialogue I feel like I would love to have a conversation with any and all of his characters His writing, as always, is evocative, realistic, and anything but trite clich d Adrian Bravo and Simeon Boudreaux are rival players who were once friends After spending a short amount of time together on the same team, they had the foundat [...]

    5 Stars I loved the first book and was excited when I got an ARC for this one I couldn t wait to read about Simeon I love the friendship that these three have You have Brawley who is the protector of the group, Marcus who seems to be the softy and the most level headed, then we have Simeon who is the jokester of the group and gets himself in trouble a lot because he says and does things before thinking them through They balance each other out and they re fiercely loyal to each other which comes [...]

    First 5 star favorite of the year This book Two hot as sin football players from two rival teams fall in lust and then love with each other in the second installment of Santino Hassell s Barons series I just can t say enough about how awesome this series has been for me I really enjoyed the first book, Illegal Contact, so my expectations were pretty high Fortunately for me, Santino Hassell delivered a heartfelt, emotionally charged love story between Simeon Boudreaux and Adri n Bravo.I had my re [...]

    Down by Contact by Santino Hassell is the enemies to lovers story of Simeon and Adri n They were once teammates and friends, but things quickly soured between them when Simeon was traded from the Predators to the Barons Adri n made it his mission to bully his old teammate in any way he could During a preseason game, the two get into it causing them both to get suspended and having to do community service together What ensues is slow burn deliciousness.Some highlights Simeon, in Illegal Contact, [...]

    I enjoyed this one, I just wish the enemies part would have lasted longer than that because it was kinda clear from the beginning that they had a thing for each other and I didn t feel the hatredQuick and easy read with a couple awwww worthy moments.I really hope Rocky s story shows a better character development as in I really want to see the homophobe struggling with feelings and stuff and coming to terms with his sexuality I think there is a lot of potential with Rocky s storyBR with Pavlina

    4,25 starsI adore Santino Hassell s writing style He s one of my favorites authors and it s always a real struggle waiting for the release of every book by him I absolutely adored Illegal Contact and the excerpt that we got at the end of it, from Down by Contact, made me want to read this one like yesterday So imagine my huge expectations I also reread Illegal Contact right before Down by Contact s release Now I start to think it was not a good idea Illegal contact was absolutely amazing, and on [...]

    DOWN BY CONTACT is the best thing I ve read all year Now don t go rolling your eyes I know we re only three days into 2018 but hey My point stands.Adri n gave me big, owlish eyes He was so boyishly adorable it was hard to hate him for long periods of time I solved that little dilemma by reminding myself that he was a douche canoe.I ve still not yet read any of Hassell s other solo works since finishing book one in The Barons series and honestly I need to stop wasting my breath over any promises [...]

    Sooo, ehhh I totally get why people say they were expecting This had a bit of a novella feel to it the sexual tension that I was looking for wasn t really there, and right up until Adrian practically begged Simeon to give him a chance, this was a three star read for me Things didn t really start panning out the way I expected until about 75% in But, first things first The GALL of the author to use that sexy assed dark skinned GOD on the cover when Simeon was medium brown with reddish brown hair [...]

    Let it be known that Santino Hassell writes the BEST redemption arcs he s truly one of the very few authors I trust not to mess up with unlikable characters in a romantic setting Seriously, it requires so much talent to make the reader root for a former asshole at least it s very rare I do, especially in romance novels Well crafted, gradual, endearing, and never running from the important conversations but rather, initiating them, Down by Contact successfully avoids all the traps that usually ru [...]

    3.5 Stars I really didn t think I could like Adrian Ever But somehow by the end I did Unfortunately, I just never did love Adrian or Simeon But it s Santino Hassell And it s football.

    The book is based on my favorite enemies to lovers trope God, I hate you No, you just hate that you want to fuck me this badly.Adri n Bravo and Simeon Boudreaux play for rival teams in Super Bowl and they hate each other since forever When they have a dirty fist fight on the field, as punishment , they will need to work together in order to teach some teenager kids in Brooklyn how to play ball.As we already know from the first book Illegal Contact, Simeon is gay and proud He admitted this fact a [...]

    There will be mild spoilers in this review Once again I am going to be odd man out This book was really a mixed bag for me I went into this thinking it was going to be lighter and sweet based on the first book of this series It was not The first 60% had me hanging on every word It reminded me of the original Five Borough books It was gritty and is probably the only hate sex book I ve ever read where I felt like the characters did actually hate each other Simeon and Adrian end up having to coach [...]

    feigns nonchalance while crossing and uncrossing legs The sexual frustration continues These books are great Brb while I add everything by Santino Hassell to my smutty smut tbr

    4.5 stars2017 was the year I found Santino Hassell and ever since reading Illegal Contact I have been a HUGE fan of his If I won t keep myself in check I ll gush over his amazing writing skills and the authentic feel of his stories all day long.I m not kidding when I say that Illegal Contact was EVERYTHING I could have asked for perfect in every way a true unicorn of a book Down by Contact was almost as good as book 1.Now, before we go on, I LOVED the plot of book 1 to pieces A notorious black s [...]

    Review also on my blog Twitter BookstagramRep black gay mc, bi Puteo Rican mc, m m romanceTrigger warnings homophobia, casual homophobia, internalised homophobiaContent warnings explicit sexual content Down By Contact is the sequel to the book, Illegal Contact While they are intended to be stand alones, there are references to the first book that would make sense if it was read before reading this book But aside from that, it seems to be able to be read as a stand alone.The book follows Simeon [...]

    I think I ve just come to the conclusion that the reason I always thought I didn t like romance was because I was only ever able to find nondiverse, allocishet ones Suffice it to say that I plan on going through pretty much everything else Santino Hassell has written asap, because this was so fucking good Here is something you should know about me before I review this I dislike sports I don t watch them, I don t usually read about them, I don t participate in them They re just incredibly uninter [...]

    This was really enjoyable Simeon Adrien had a love hate relationship Playing on rival teams, trash talking on social media then losing their cool in a practice match which led to a six week suspension Forced together to support a youth Centre Simeon and Adrien began to realize they actually had in common than they thought As they shared deeper feelings after a few dares both men realized they were clearly hooked on each other This was really cute actually and it was nice watching Adrien come to [...]

    Thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for providing me with a copy in exchange for an honest review Yowza, this book was chock full of hotness Fiesty dudes, getting busy with each other Sexual tension you could cut with a knife Emotional turmoil and angst Serioualy though, I loved this book so much I read it in a few hours The first book was better, in my opinion, because, well, Gavin Brawley was super effing sexy This one had some ridiculously heated scenes though, and definitely differentiated [...]

    4 STARSI love this series and I was so excited to start reading Down by Contact I was hooked from the beginning, I couldn t put it down Santino delivers a captivating,intense and passionate story These two drive me crazy in a good way They were full of tension and they were passionate.I couldn t get enough of these two They start off arguing a lot and then they start have feelings I love their smart dialogues, and it was fun reading about them.Simeon is such a sweetheart I loved him immediately, [...]
