Battle for the Top Cover

Blurb

Whether it’s on or off the tennis court, Knightley is always ready to battle for the top. An explosive confrontation with his nemesis Kingston leads them to take their rivalry to the next level off the court. Can two fierce adversaries turn passion into romance?

Knightley Neilson

Kingston Sabatino throws fuel on my fire like nothing else ever has. Our rivalry is all-consuming since I’m determined to dethrone him and reclaim my rightful place as the number one tennis player in the world. I will beat him, someday.

When I confront Kingston after another devastating loss, the line between my rage and obsession to win begins to blur as I discover there might be another way for me to come out on top. True, I’ve never been attracted to a man before, but the temptation to have him at my mercy matters more to me than his gender. I’m not just willing to make him mine; I want to claim him as mine in every way. Having him give in to me will ultimately be the sweetest victory.

Is it really possible for me to love a man like Kingston while still wanting to be the winner?

Next, I’ll issue a challenge I know he’ll never be able to resist, even though he’s straight: take his passionate rage out on me in the hottest way possible. That’s how I discover he kisses to win. And I’m not about to let him stop there.

Can I help him see past our rivalry to understand that we’re perfect for each other in every way? Tennis starts with “Love-all,” so let the game begin.

Ryder

It’s a cliche’ really, falling in love with my best friend, my very straight best friend. And to add more complications, I’m a football player, about to be drafted. We’re manly men.

We aren’t supposed to be gay. But I am and I love the one person I’ll never have. Until fate forces us together six years later. It’ll be both a fantasy and hell on earth, playing alongside Crush—the only man who will ever truly own my heart.

Crush

He dropped a bomb on me. Then he left, never looking back. Our friendship—ruined until he lands back in my life. His presence is just as big as ever. I never forgot him, or what that one kiss so many years ago still does to my body. He’s here, but is he willing to stay?

Another great addition to Amy’s ice hockey series

54626294._SY475_Risking the Shot by Amy Aislin

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was another great addition to this loosely connected ice hockey series.

Here we have Taylor, a teammate of Grey and Dean from book one, who has been crushing on the 11 years older single dad who works for the club’s fund-raising arm.

From the off, I really liked Dakota, his son Andy is an adorable imp, who read like a four-year-old and now some child genius, and their relationship was loving and super sweet.

I also really liked Tay, his sense of insecurity outside of the ice came across well and his maturity didn’t feel at all forced.

The main conflicts come from internal fears and they were used well to create tension without straying into the ‘lack of communication’ trope which I hate.

Lots of good secondary characters (loved Dakota’s cousin Calder, he gets a free extra scene available via Amy’s newsletter).

I also appreciated that Tay’s sisters tried to make amends for how they’d basically ignored him when they were kids and didn’t try to make excuses other than the large age gap (they’re Dakota’s age), something which had triggered most of his self isolating issues.

The sex is sweet and steamy and there’s a good build up to things becoming more serious.

The other guys from the previous books are on hand to make guest appearances, which I love in a series, and overall this was a thoroughly enjoyable read.

I’m interested to see if Tay’s best friend Stanton is going to be book five’s MC along with Xappa.
