Ball Boy: An Age Gap MM Sports Romance (Boy Batter Novels Book 1) by Raquel Riley

Ball Boy is an insanely great age gap between a student and his coach, filled with so many questionable uses of equipment you'll question everything you have ever learned.

From the blurb:

There’s no crying in baseball, unless you want the one thing you can’t have… your coach.

~Austin Healey

It all started with a kinky video about a baseball player and his coach. A coach who happened to look just like mine. Now, I can’t get Coach Wolfe off my mind. He’s all I can think about. Teaching me, touching me, praising me for being the good boy I am. Unfortunately, he won’t do any of those things, not as long as I’m his student.

But I’m eighteen and about to graduate.

~Marcus Wolfe

I would love to have a boy of my own again. A boy who is honest, loyal, obedient, and generous. A boy just like… Austin, who happens to be too young, and completely off-limits. But Austin doesn’t understand limits. He is determined to make a conquest of me. My defenses are wearing thin.

I’m only a man, and a man can only take so much.

Ball Boy is an MM baseball sports romance with an age gap, power imbalance, and praise kink. This coach/student pairing can be read as a standalone but contains characters from the already published Family Sins Duet.

Tatted_book_freak's Review:

So we got a glimpse of Austin and Marcus in the Family Sins duet, and now we finally get their story of how they got together! Austin was a persistent little shit, totally not what I expected from our initial encounter. And his thoughts?! What a nasty, filthy-minded young man he is! And Marcus wasn't much better 不

Marcus and Austin were made for each other, from Austin’s praise kink and Marcus’ need for a new “boy,” their journey of spice and carnality will leave their passengers filled with lustful thoughts and a new outlook on baseball equipment. The power imbalance was discussed adequately and not overbearing. An enjoyable read, especially if you are interested in smut and vulgarity.

Heather's Review:

When Austin figures out what he wants, he gets it.. and he's set his sights on Marcus! This book is a non-stop feast for the carnal senses - from Austin's porn stash to Marcus' imagination... and by the time you get to 69% of the book, you finally get full on penetration... I also love how this book intersects with the Family Sins book where we got teased about their relationship, so we see just how Austin and Marcus handle finding out about the family secrets...

If you like kinky age gap romance walking the fine line between forbidden and accepted, you'll love Ball Boy!

Reedkaye's Review:

This is a frowned upon, almost illegal, student to coach story. It starts when Austin gets this light bulb realization moment that he is gay. Not only gay, but seriously crushing on his baseball coach. Since Austin plans on a career playing ball and, due to his age, this isn’t something socially accepted. 

He chases and corners his coach to the point it becomes impossible for his coach to ignore this as a crush. Then something happens that makes them face what they are feeling. 

This is an intense story. There are plenty of times that could have changed their lives. I especially enjoyed the secondary characters of Penn and Wild. Their relationship added another layer to the story.
