I know that most people who follow this journal are, to some extent, into football slash, so it is with great pleasure that I bring a book rec that will undoubtedly resonate with all of you.

The blurb says that 'Ravages' is a love story between two footballers -Steve Gavan and Daniël Borghart, who play for a fictional club in the Premier-, but it's so, so much more than that. It's a story about loss, about acceptance, about secrets and what happens when those secrets come to light.

It's not the typical boy-meets-boy, boys-fall-instantly-in-love, boys-face-contrived-circumstances-that-keep-them-apart, boys-have-a-happy-ending story. Seriously, take your expectations and leave them at the door when you start this book, because this is a story that goes much deeper than that. I dare you not to fall in love with the characters -the main couple, their teammates and friends-. I dare you not to feel their struggles as your own. I dare you not to read this book and then look at the fanfiction we all read and write and see it differently.

I really, really, really don't have enough words to praise this story.

You can read more about 'Ravages' here, enter a giveaway for one copy at the author's blog here or buy a copy straight from the publishing house here.

I promise you won't regret it... I know I didn't!
