Review: Love, Hypothetical by Anne Tenino *Riptide Publishing*
Paul's been called many things—graduate student, humanities tutor, jock-hater, even broke—but "forgiving" isn't one of them. When the new women's softball coach at Calapooya College specifically requests Paul to tutor his athletes, Paul's forced to put aside his strict "no athletes" policy for the sake of his paycheck.
Enter Trevor Gardiner, former Major League Baseball player and Paul’s high school boyfriend. Yeah, that one—the guy who sacrificed Paul for the safety of his closet and his future career. But Trevor’s come out and retired from baseball, and now he’s looking for forgiveness and a second chance.
There’s no earthly reason Paul should give him one, but he keeps letting the man state his case. And touch him. And take him sailing. The waters are far from smooth, though, and Paul says awful things to Trevor he isn’t sure he means. Now Paul has to decide: apologize and forgive Trevor for everything, or chalk it up as revenge and move on.
I obtained the above information from Riptide Publishing website.

I received this book from Riptide for my honest thoughts... So here we go... Oh wait.. First.... Let me say this again.... My only warning is that this is a m/m loving story. So, if this is not your cup of tea... You will not offend me. You can merely just drop by to say Hi! Thanks for coming over in advance!
Ms. Anne is a very crafty author! This story is a show of her wit and humor... The characters in this story - one in particular must have given her ulcers, lol... This story is like watching a train wreck and not being able to look away because you pray that the crash really doesn't happen. This story will make you laugh, make you sigh, make you want to slap a bitch (ha, Paul) but this story will also make you tear up and hold someone till the memories are erased.
Anne makes all right with the world of Paul and Trevor but not before making one or the other grovel...
So, let me let you get to know Paul... He is a prick. No, seriously.. He is, lol. He will even tell you himself. But he has a past that would hurt anyone. And it has scarred him so much that he has put up a wall, should say a dam around his heart. Allowing no one in... And if the walls are not enough... He has an attitude to push away anyone that might think they could love him.... That is until his old love returns... And then all bets are off and love becomes hypothetically...
Trevor did something that was pretty shitty in his past but he grew up a lot and now knows what's important in his life... But the question is... Is what's important enough to tear down a dam and survive... Well, there's only one way to do that.... Find the one man that made him feel like he was his whole world and ask for a second chance... Because hypothetically speaking... Love would still be there!!!
This story is just that good... I mean Paul has a friendship base that he didn't think he has and they do things that make Paul wonder did he do right to deserve friends like them... Those are the kind of friends that make you feel proud to know you have friends who have your back even when you thought you pushed them all away...
These two have a story to tell you that I hope you let them tell you!
