Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!
Series: Love and Sports #1
Title: His Convenient Husband
Author: Robin Covington
Publisher: Entangled Indulgence, Entangled Publishing
Published: October 9th, 2017
This is the first bromance that I’ve read and I have to admit that I chose it because of the author rather than the blurb. I’ve read quite a few books by Robin Covington and thoroughly enjoyed them all.
This one has some great characters in it and they are brought to life within the pages of the story but I didn’t like aspects of Isaiah’s attitude and I felt so much sympathy for Victor. Evan is brilliant, so well portrayed! There are also some scenarios that just didn’t quite gel for me but it is still an enjoyable read.
I requested and received a copy of this novel, via NetGalley, with no obligation. This is my honest review after choosing to read it.
NFL football player Isaiah Blackwell lost his husband three years ago and is raising their teen son alone. He lives his life as quietly as his job allows, playing ball to support his family but trying not to draw unwanted attention. His quiet life is shaken up when a mutual friend introduces him to Victor, a visiting principal ballet dancer who is everything Isaiah is not.
Victor Aleksandrov has applied for political asylum to avoid returning to Russia, where gay men are targeted and persecuted. He’s been outspoken about gay rights in his home country, and if he doesn’t get asylum, going back to Russia is a death sentence.
Their one-night stand turns into a tentative friendship, a relationship they both agree is temporary… until Victor’s denied asylum. Isaiah can’t offer Victor a happily ever after, but he can propose something that’ll keep Victor in the US and safe… marriage He just doesn’t expect his new husband to dance away with his heart.
