Nathan gives an overview of the book:

Their sweaty, gym-hardened bodies do battle in the arena for our entertainment and admiration. They are gladiators fighting to be the best at their chosen sport, putting their muscles on the line for the cheers of the crowd. And once the battle’s done, they strip down and get down to the serious business of giving and receiving pleasure. They are modern day gods to be worshipped, admired, touched, and loved. Here are their stories—stories of desire, lust, passion, and raw, animalistic pleasure that will blow your mind and stimulate your libido. You will never look at an athlete the same way again.

SWEAT has a first for me - I have two stories in it. "Shutout" is a hockey-themed story (which I felt, since I lived in Canada, appropriate). "In the Doghouse" was inspired more-or-less from a self-defense class I took, though in real life it wasn't focused on kickboxing, like it is in SWEAT.

“Heart” is one of the more poignant stories in this anthology and captures the essence of what we wouldn’t do in our power to keep the one we love in our arms and by our side. This story is most beautiful...
