Story Overview:
The secret about the Birmingham Rebels is out: With a girl in middle, two mouth-watering football studs are better than one.

Linebacker Sam Taylor feels like a ticking time bomb. He left the army with emotional wounds as fresh as the scars on his back. Sam’s been living like a monk, but his best friend, defensive lineman King Ulupoka, wants to get him laid. Easy for him to say. The larger-than-life Samoan is a hard-bodied, tribal-tattooed fantasy. Sam agrees, under one condition: King stays to watch.

ER nurse Jane Foster is done being a good girl, and nothing says wild like picking up two of football’s sexiest players and bringing them back to your hotel room. Trouble is, she can’t decide which one she wants more. Sam is hot, sweet, and vulnerable. Jane’s more than willing to ride him into oblivion. But King’s intense gaze from across the room promises that the best is yet to come.

Sure, King has had his choice of girls and guys in the past. That doesn’t mean he’ll jeopardize his relationship with Sam over a case of locker-room lust—until a naughty nurse pushes them both out of their comfort zones. Seeing Jane and Sam together turns King on more than he ever imagined. If they’re game, he’s ready to tackle a three-way play.

My Review:
This is absolutely the kinkiest pro football team around and I kind of love them for that. 

This story centers around King and Sam. King is this huge Samoan defensive lineman (I think that's his position) on the team. (From his description, I totally pictured him as Jason Momoa.) This guy is pure heart. Everyone on the team loves him...he's just one of those guys...looks fierce, but is actually a huge teddy bear. His best friend is Sam. Sam also plays defense although he's not near as jacked up as King. Sam was in the Army and was one of only two in his squad to survive an IED. That's left him a little messed up in the head and he hasn't been in the right place to have sex with a woman since. King thinks that Sam just needs to get laid and everything will smooth out in Sam's world, but Sam doesn't trust his PTSD and control when he's in the moment. So they come up with a plan. Sam will find a girl, and King will watch to make sure nothing goes bad. Simple, right? Not so much...

Jane is an ER nurse down for a quick vacation on the beach. She's having a good time when a douche gets handsy. King and Sam come to her rescue and the three begin to talk. She's a good girl...not the type they need for their mission, but they like her and walk her back to her hotel, just to make sure she doesn't get into any more trouble. And things happen from there...

Happy sigh. I loved this book so, so much. None of the three of these characters is kinky by nature. They just get caught up and things get so incredibly hot from there. I loved that both Jane and Sam seem to have some sort of transformation 'in the moment'. In normal life, they're both pretty quiet and reserved, but get them into bed and the dirty talking hot stuff begins to flow...big time. 

This book was sexy and so fun. I loved every minute of it. Sam's story is heartbreaking and that added a bit of angst and vulnerability to the story that I adored. I loved King and how his laidback attitude flows into the bedroom...he's open to anything. It's all good. Then there's Jane who is completely honest and upfront. There are no games in this girl and I loved that about her. She seriously is a perfect match for the two guys. I loved how close the guys are as friends, but that never once threatened her or caused her pause. In fact, she kind of loves it. 

Everything about this story worked for me. I loved the characters and the story set up and all the extremely sexy times. I love that there's still at least one more book to come in this series. I also love the Birmingham Rebels and that they are just that...Rebels...they don't care what anyone thinks. They make their own rules and their game is starting to come together because of it.

I received a complimentary copy of this book in return for an honest review.
