Woohoo! Out in the End Zone is available now on Amazon KU! This is book 2 in my Out in College series set in Southern California. Each short story revolves around a sport…in this case it’s football! If you read book 1, Out in the Deep, you may remember that Evan. He’s a fun-loving goofball who loves his friends, family and the sport that’s given him a sense of purpose and hope when life hasn’t gone according to plan. He’s not sure what compels him to agree to play ‘fake boyfriends’ for a friend of a friend’s senior project, but from day one, it’s clear that Mitch isn’t going to be easy to forget. Evan finds himself unexpectedly grappling with his past and the knowledge that real life exists outside of a comfort zone.This is my first foray into the fake boyfriends trope and I have to say, Evan and Mitch made it so much fun. Take a peek at the blurb for Out in the End Zone below. And for those interested, the release day festivities start today at Lane’s Lovers and MM Daily Grind with giveaways at both FB groups! Hope to see you there. In the meantime, enjoy Evan and Mitch!

Blurb for Out in the End Zone by Lane Hayes:
Evan di Angelo is an upbeat, good-natured goofball who loves his friends and family…and football. A traumatic accident may have ended his hopes of playing professionally, but he’s made the most of his four years on the field at a small Southern California college. He’s learned the hard way to embrace change, take chances and try things outside of his comfort zone…like agreeing to play fake boyfriends for someone else’s senior project.
Mitch Peterson knows that being his authentic self is the path to true happiness. He’s grown from a shy, quiet kid from a broken home to an out and proud budding internet sensation bound for grad school. An awesome senior project is the key. It’s unlikely anyone will believe the hunky, straight athlete is Mitch’s new lover, but it’s worth a shot. However, as their tentative friendship blossoms into unexpected attraction, the lines between reality and fiction blur for both men. Evan is forced to face old demons and decide if he has the courage to take the next step and come out in the end zone.
