Six foot seven inch, 300 pound Jamal Jones loves football, so when he finds out the ultra-conservative owner of his new pro football team fired their current center because he’s gay, bisexual Jamal decides to stay in the closet and hang with the females. Then, at a small drag show, he comes face-to-face with his sexual fantasy in the form of Trixie LaRue, a drag queen so exquisitely convincing she scrambles Jamal’s hormones — and his resolve to nurse his straight side.
Trevor Landry, aka Trixie LaRue, hides more than his genitals. A mathematician so brilliant he can’t be measured, Trevor disguises his astronomical IQ and his quirk for women’s clothes behind his act as a gay activist undergrad at Southern California University.
To Trevor, Jamal is the answer to a dream — a man who can love and accept both his personas. When he discovers Jamal’s future is threatened if he’s seen with a guy, Trevor becomes Trixie to let Jamal pass as straight. But Trevor risks his position every time he puts on a dress. Is there a closet big enough to hold a football pro and a drag queen?
Trixie LaRue aka Trevor the drag queen mathematician. Loved this character with all her diva attitude and take no crap mentality. I did feel bad for Trixie/Trevor with everything Jamal was asking him to do, the constant hiding trying to come across as a woman without being caught as a man. Also with everything that was happening with his mom and his brother.
Jamal was a huge football player and when I say huge I mean huge everywhere.. Like more then 9 inches huge, let me just say damn!!! He is center on his football team which happens to be very conservative. So he has to hide that he is bi from everyone or face being kicked off the team. Let me say I loved Jamal’s family and wished more families could be so understanding and loving as his was.
The scenes between Trevor and Jamal were so damn hot!!! There is angst in this book with what the owners put these two through. I loved it when Trixie would get all diva with Jamal. I also really felt how much Jamal love Trixie/Trevor for what he was inside and out. You meet a lot of characters in this book some you love and some you hate… All together I really loved this book! I would definitely recommend this book!
