Luke Diaz signs up for an adult dodgeball league out of morbid curiosity and a love for a crazy movie. After all, sports aren’t his thing. Then attraction to the team captain, Shane Kinrade, keeps him from ducking out of tryouts, and Luke discovers he’s actually rather good at hitting where he aims. Along with his newfound ability, Luke considers the charming team captain to be right up his alley and luckily, Shane shares his interest.

A story from the Dreamspinner Press 2013 Daily Dose package "Make a Play".


Book Review

Did you ever do or try something new just for the fun of it? Something just a little out of the ordinary, maybe even ridiculous? In this story, Luke does just such a thing and finds that, occasionally, ideas that may seem stupid at first can lead to some really interesting new situations and getting to know a man he might otherwise have never met.

Luke's participation in the tryouts for an adult dodgeball league starts as a sort of challenge, or a dare, or maybe it was a herbal-shake induced spell of reduced mental capacity; he isn’t too sure. But as soon as he gets to the tryout, he falls into lust with the team captain. Luke's descriptions thoughts, and deliberations are pretty funny. And when it turns out he's pretty good at throwing a ball? His fate is decided! 

If you like reading humorous stories with a narrator who doesn’t take himself too seriously, if you enjoy stories about adults rediscovering what some may consider a kids' sport, and if you're looking for a quick and entertaining read, then you will probably like this short story.
