Rainbow Awards Honorable Mention: Ty Game by Kyell Gold

Ty Game by Kyell Gold

"Wow, this was a great book. The characters are fun, light-hearted, sweet, and still realistic, though being something other than human. The dialogue, the progress of the plot, the atmosphere--it all feels normal, like it could happen to any old human. There are cute pictures too. Sure, there's some needless shit going on, like all the random hook-ups with chicks, the games one after the other, and the leading lady's job stuff. But despite the on-occasion slow pacing, overall the story flows organically, with ease. The ending surprised me a bit and wasn't entirely satisfactory but worked well, I suppose."

When a chance encounter in a dance club leads Ty to question his sexuality, the fox keeps it secret from everyone, even his gay teammate. After all, he's in the spotlight as the newest wide receiver of the playoff-bound Firebirds, and his parents are arranging a marriage for him. He can't let a hookup with a guy mess that up.

Tami's got her career planned out — until her mother makes her put her name in to be Ty's wife. Now she's juggling deadlines and a relationship that she sure doesn't need with her dream job on the line.

Together, Ty and Tami will have to decide what they're willing to risk, and what they're willing to leave behind — including maybe each other.

Ty Game is the newest full-length Forester Universe novel by Kyell Gold, and examines a character first introduced in the award-winning Dev and Lee (aka: “Out of Position”) series.
