Isolation Play is the sequel to Out of Position, and picks up where the other novel ended, when Dev, the big tiger and football player, came out during an official press conference. Lee, his fox lover, is attending the press conference and his crying, since Dev is, in a way, declaring his love for him to the world. Of course that was a perfect happy end for Out of Position, but was it an Happily Ever After? Dev is the first football player coming out as gay, he has a lot of challenges in front of him, first of all his team and his family. And while the team is surprisingly quite supporting, the family apparently is not the same. Most of the story will follow Dev and Lee trying to rebuild the balance in Dev’s family, with his mother that would be willing to accept Lee, and instead Dev’s father who seems unable to accept that his son is homosexual, because a big and strong Tiger cannot be gay. On the other hand Lee, who had mostly given up to his own family, spurned by Dev’s experience, will try to reconcile with at least one of his parents.
If you loved Out of Position, and I know a lot of you did, you have to read Isolation Play, it’s the logic consequence and a wonderful run along two young males trying to find their own place in the world.
