Caleb is a rookie goalie for a soccer team with a chance to sign a long-term contract.  There’s just one problem, he’s tired of hiding the fact that he is gay and also feels that he should be doing something else with his life.  While house-sitting for his brother, Jake, he meets Emmaline’s cousin, Angel, and later encounters the one night stand he can’t forget.

The latest in the Genetic Attraction series has a lot of twists, as well as betrayal.  Deceptive Attraction lets Caleb realize that he can be attracted to at least one women and he wonders if he might eventually be able to have a poly relationship, like his brother does.

One thing I like about this book is that the author throws in some interesting facts that make a reader realize how some factions of society are treated here and in other places, know matter how successful they may be, even if they are great at their particular sport. 

A few of the secondary characters show up from the previous books, but I did not like some of the new ones that showed up. I really liked Angel, but I wanted to slap Eli at times.  The part he plays in hurting Caleb was because he wanted to keep his independence from his father and I loved what Caleb did to resolve his conflict. However, Eli’s father was extremely manipulative and I was happy when Eli was finally able to get out of his shadow.

The way the author is weaving this series together keeps it interesting and I am looking forward to the next book.
