My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I’ve said before how much I enjoy a good sports romance. While the real world seems to sadly lag behind when it comes to top level athletes and sportsmen being able to be out safely and successfully, these novels provide the joy and the hope things might reach that state eventually.
This was both a later life and a sort of second chance romance, two of my favourite tropes, both men coming with plenty of baggage and fears about being vulnerable.
I loved both Nix and Linc, they were uniquely drawn characters with their own distinct voice. The steam level is on the lower scale but when they do get together it’s beautifully passionate. It’s also mostly low angst too, these guys talk it out, albeit with some reluctance.
There’s a moment of sadness too but it’s not drama lama-ing for the sake of plot. Now I’m hoping that Sloan has set us up with Blake and mystery man John for book three.
Oh, truly gorgeous cover too.
