    One thought on “More Than the Ball

    1. Raj

      If the sun & the moon shared the same space for a brief moment of time,the attraction between both these celestial bodies would burn as brightly as does the fire that sparks between the Dev & Elliot.No length of time nor distance diminishes the heat that flares between these two best friends & the end result is a blaze worth reading about.

    2. John-TorleifHarris

      Good first-time gay romanceThis was a pretty fun first time, sport romance. I think that Dev should have been more assertive when he was timid, and less insecure when he was being forceful, but it made for some delicious drama. Elliot was your fairly typical pro jock who was so deep in the closet that he didn't even realize he was there, at first. This would have been a five star review if Elliot could have been more than just a cookie cutter example of this trope.

    3. Jennifer

      Quick, entertaining story. More tell about important points in the story than experience; that is why it was only okay. I liked the quick, erotic short story after the main story more; the reason for this- the author told you exactly what you were getting-

    4. DW

      There was potential to be really good but it didn't work for me. I really like a second chance romance but this was rushed and skipped like 5 years before I realized what happened. I read the whole book hoping it would get better for me but I could not connect with Dev or Elliott. My first mistake was I didn't read GR reviews first and I ALWAYS read them first. give it 4.5 stars and it was only .99 so I went for it. Oh well, move on to the next book!!

    5. Amanda

      Quick, easy read. Could have done without reading about each MC with other people but all in all it was good.

    6. Mantastic

      Lots of stuff going on in this book. Love the Friend/Teammate/Roommate-to-Lovers trope and this was a good one. I especially liked the dynamics of both main characters. Each POV had a distinct voice with specific concerns. There was never any doubt whose head we were in. Something I really liked about this book is the balance the author stuck. There was some instant gratification for those who like that sort of thing, but instead of getting stale from peaking too soon, it created a great hook th [...]

      3.5 Heart Review by AmberThis was a pretty good book. There was nothing that stood out for me as exceptional and nothing that I absolutely hated. I am unfamiliar with this author but I enjoyed the writing style. There were a few minor editing issues and some name switch ups here and there that caught me off guard but nothing I absolutely could not deal with.Dev Bandi and Elliot Gates lived as roommates for 4 years during their time in college. Growing extremely close with each other personal spa [...]

      Good book.I did enjoy this story. Dev and Elliott were college room mates for three years and both on the soccer team. They had a very easy going friendship. They were good with just laying around in their apartment together watching tv. Right as they were graduating they were suppose to be packing up the apartment but Elliott wanted to just relax and watch tv. Dev was lying on the couch with his head in Elliott's lap with Elliott caressing his stomach. Elliott puts on some pornography because t [...]

    11. Jasmine

      More Than the Ball was my first book by Brandon Redstone. It also was my first M/M romance. I was curious just from the blurb about the story being that it would be something different than what I usually read. But, I truly enjoyed this story! Dev and Elliot's story was so real you couldn't help but connect with it, even if you weren't experiencing the same struggles. Your heart feels for both Dev and Elliott throughout the story as the two circle around their true feelings and almost lose somet [...]

    14. Bambi Teague

      Feeling incredibly generous by giving this 2 stars Tried to like this book. Just couldn't get into it. Funny thing is, Once Jordan the over bearing boyfriend (Whom I could not stand at all by the way) walked away from the relationship with the openly gay character ( And this is another problem I have with this story. The two main characters where too similar without a girlfriend or boyfriend around or them at their perspective jobs I had no clue who was narrating) I really lost interest in the o [...]

    15. Jen Zingaro

      I was provided an arc of this book for an honest review. I love reading M/M books and when I read the description for this one, it reminded me of my favorite one! This was a really good story that kept me interested. I had a hard time putting it down because I wanted to know what happened next. It doesn't have a tremendous amount of angst which was a relief. I had no experience with this author prior to this book. It was easy to really love the characters in this book. Written from dual POC whic [...]

    16. Susan

      You could just read the first chapter and be good that's the flashback to their college encounter and it's HOT! I read the inspiration (the short Brojobs included at the end of the kindle book), and this was WAY better! I definitely could have done without so much of the Dev/Jordan stuff I think we could have seen the state of their relationship without the sex scenes and extended look into their life. Jordan's a brat move along (Ok he was a little bit redeemed, but not really.) The rest of it I [...]

    17. GlamLawyer

      The story had a lot potential to be really deep. Closeted football (soccer) player, friends to lovers, gay for you overall the themes didn't go very deep. I was disappointed about the skipping of the public coming out. That was what I wanted to read but that's me. Also the build up was angsty but the conclusion was too easy for me. I missed a real peak. Otherwise it was an enjoyable and easy read with likeable characters.

    18. Annie

      This was a fast and fun read about two best friends that become more.Dev Bandi and Elliot Gates go their separate ways after graduating college. They were best friends but did not keep in touch much until the meet again and the past comes roaring back in. What they want and what they do are tow different things.I enjoyed this story and it was interesting to see each of them to grow and come to terms with their wants and choices and finally seen what others already had.

    19. Misty Wilson

      Cute, fun and hot!I enjoyed this book! My favorite love story is close friends to lovers. The only downside to this book is the abrupt leap from be my boyfriend to the epilogue. I would recommend to anyone.

    20. Charo

      "Elliot is living in London, playing for the Spurs, when"No, no, no! It's just Spurs. Not the Spurs.

    23. *~*~*Kael*~*~*

      Was really on the fence with this one but couldn't pass up on the fact that it's $0.99 today (on ). Reading this one now so I can cross it off my "not sure but why not give it a try" shelf :-)!
