Shirtless bearded man with smile and tattoos. Text saying The Home Game coming june 2024

We're getting so close to release day! Today I'll be looking over the proofreading round from my editor so let's celebrate with another teaser from the story. Isn't Matty the sweetest?

Oh lord. The way Matty held Reese … he was so careful. Careful but confident. Like he knew exactly what he was doing.

Shit! That shouldn’t be so attractive but it really was. And the happy, excited faces Matty kept making at Reese, it was like he’d been given the best gift ever.

Antoni’s mom lifted her eyebrows, shooting Antoni a significant glance as if to say “we’re going to talk about this later” before she excused herself.

“I’ll uh, help get the other kids ready if you can manage Reese,” Antoni said, face feeling a little warm at being caught shamelessly ogling.

“Oh, yeah, I’ve got this,” Matty said confidently. “Reese and I will be right here entertaining each other.”

He shot Antoni a smile, then made another silly face at Reese.

Reese, who already seemed completely charmed by Matty, grabbed at his beard, and laughed.

“Uhh, okay,” Antoni said, tearing himself away.

“What on earth is Matt Carlson doing in our entryway?” Antoni’s mom hissed when they were out of earshot.

Antoni blinked. “You know who he is?”

“Of course I do! Everyone in Toronto—oh, Antoni,” his mom said with a little laugh. “You didn’t?”

“I …” Antoni sighed. “You know I’ve never really watched sports and it’s not like I can afford to now.”
