Foul Ball (Espen Emperors Book 5) by Haven Hadley is now available!
Declan Armitage. The right fielder Espen got in a trade.
A powerful hitter, a hard throw, and an unmatched stolen base percentage. Not expecting to be traded, he was happy to learn where he was headed. If only he didn’t need to find a new place to live. One phone call from his brother and the plan was put into motion.
Brock Richmond was loyal to a fault. When his best friend called and asked if his brother could stay with him, Brock didn’t hesitate. Declan didn’t have a home in Espen and Brock had a spare room.
Brock retired from professional football at the end of last season. All he wanted was peace and quiet, a chance to relax. He pushed his body far enough. A break was needed. And he wanted someone to spend his time with.
He also had to get up the courage to tell everyone the one secret he kept his entire football career—Brock was gay.
Declan had wanted Brock since he was a teenager. Not that it was a possibility with a straight man. Except, Brock wasn’t so straight after all.
Being true to yourself was a tough road. The fear of rejection was very real. The chance that not everyone would accept the decisions you made.
The ball was high in the sky. The line of in or out wasn’t far. Declan had to decide to let it fall foul or make a dive for it.
