    One thought on “Out in the Deep End”

    1. ~3.5~This is a very enjoyable read about two water polo players who discover they have more in common than just the sport during an away team tournament. Adam has no idea why the new freshman player, Zev, is so standoffish with him, but Adam is the life of the party and decides he just doesn't care. Except he does, because Zev's ass in those tight shorts is something to behold. Water polo is hot all those slick, wet bodies in nothing but speedos rubbing up against each other. And this story inc [...]

    2. This story was very cute, with both MC's making me root for them. And the whole gay'ish water polo team trope was new to me. And hot.Adam, sophomore:And sooooo many, many fit collegiate team mates. MmmmBut the way that it ended, I felt hopeful, but would have liked a bit more. Maybe make a dinner date or something, I don't know.This short story as a full-length book would definitely be a winner for me, but it came off as a little abrupt. One more romp in the hay and some more cuddling after woul [...]

    3. College setting?Hunky athletes?OFY and a virgin?What's not to like? Exactly.You really can't really go wrong with such a set up. A little bit of angst, a lot of heat, nice fireworks. Seriously too short, but I immensely enjoyed what I got.

    4. 4 StarsI adore the Love is an Open Road series. This was a great story, with sweet, funny and incredibly hot swimmerswho could ask for more. This prompt would make a wonderful full length book.

    5. This is actually the first thing by Lane Hayes I've read. It was very enjoyable, short and sweet and full of first time exploration (for one of our guys, anyway). I look forward to reading other stuff by this author.

    6. Nice -- but I have never been a huge fan of enemies-to-lovers theme (the transition needs to be VERY convincing for me to like it!) to begin with and this one fell short in making me believed of Zev's change of heart. What can I say, maybe I just don't buy the whole "I treat you like leper because I like you" stuff. Also the ratio of 'sex vs. story' was not balanced enough for me :)I liked Adam's 'voice' though.

    7. This was a fun, sexy story. The ending was a little bit of a letdown. But apart from that I really enjoyed it.I would love to read more of these two.

    8. *3.5 stars*Funny, sexy and light story with some angry sex and a HFN. I liked the characters and I loved the hypochondriac Justin. I 'd like to see more of them.

    9. 3.5 StarsThis was a quick, enjoyable, sexy read. Pretty much what I expect from Lane Hayes. (view spoiler)[But I like you, Adam. A lot. I’m going to have a hard time pretending I don’t want to shove you against a locker-room wall and fuck your brains out after practice, but I’ll try. If I manage to not get a boner in my Speedo when I see you in the pool, I’ll call it progress. When we’re at practice or a game or a team event, we’ll keep things kosher, but I don’t see why we can’t [...]

    10. This was a nice little story. The sports stuff wasn't too much, it kept me interested although I know next to nothing about it. Perhaps the development was a bit too smooth, but, well, this is a short story, right?

    11. Another cute entry with water polo athletes as the main pairing. Sunny disposition golden boy versus dark brooding and handsome. Lighthearted and feel-good reading.

    12. Sweet OFY story about two water-polo guys!!!“I want to know you. All of you. This weekend was great, and coming out to the team was a big step, but I know it won’t always be simple. In a way, I feel like I’m learning how to swim in the deep end. I’m treading water pretty well, but I’m not sure how I’ll handle going under. I could be a disaster. Are you ready for that, or am I in the deep end without a life preserver?”This story is a free story from M/M Romance Group (MM Romance Gr [...]

    13. That cover though ;)I had the pleasure of talking Lane into writing this, beta reading it, and making the cover.So thank you Lane for letting me harass you <3This is such a Lane Hayes story - fun, easy, smile-worthy, and with a nice dash of sexiness.

    14. Pretty cute story that left me smiling. Zev's quick turnaround to coming out seemed a bit too easy though.

    15. This was cute, and I thought the story went well with the prompt!As always, thanks to everyone who took part in bringing us this event!

    16. This was a weird one. I loved the subject matter (Californian water polo college dudes! Yes, please!), but I found the writing frenetic and choppy, which made the first-person narrator sound (and feel) frantic. I don't feel like I really got to know either guy very well—yeah, I know it's just a short story, but it was really exposition heavy, so I feel like there wasn't a lot of good time to bond with the characters over their actions. I don't know all just happened so fast! They went from ani [...]

    17. 4 STARSWell. Um. That was.Ugh Lane Hayes. This short one was so good. It felt detailed even if it was short. I really loved the plot and the story. Adam and Nate were very interesting characters and everything was interesting. Even the super duper short scenes with the teammates were good. I wish this was a long one. The sex scenes were good (view spoiler)[although there was no anal, that's why I wanted it to be long! (hide spoiler)]. Overall, a great but short read. ["br"]>["br"]>["br"]&g [...]

    18. I really enjoyed this story. Lane Hayes is one of my favorite writers and finding this among the Love is an Open Road stories was a real treat. Then finding out it's GFY with two sexy athletes, some hot sex scenes and the hope of a HEA? Made my day. Thanks for giving us this terrific freebie, Lane!

    19. A story about water polo players that pushed all my buttons. A very likeable MC, sexy young men all around, enemies-to-loversI did not even mind the lack of smut, because it would not have fit into the story.Thanks to the author for contibuting to this year's DRitC event
