The first in THE BIRMINGHAM REBELS series by Samantha Kane: BROKEN PLAY
PROFESSIONAL FOOTBALL WILL NEVER BE THE SAME
Birmingham Rebels offensive linemen Beau Perez and Cass Zielinski are inseparable, on and off the field. Cass, the captain with the cowboy swagger, is a loose cannon. Beau, the veteran tight end, is cool under pressure. And ever since they were caught on tape in a steamy threesome, their exploits have fueled more than a few tabloid headlines—and naughty fantasies.
Marian Treadwell knows all about the video. And now that she’s the Rebels’ new assistant offensive coach, she can’t look at Beau and Cass without picturing their hard, naked bodies—with her pressed in between. Marian would like nothing more than to indulge those impulses, but she knows better than to get too close to her players, a bunch of adrenaline-fueled alpha males who don’t always follow the rules.
Just the thought of sharing the gorgeous yet guarded Marian drives Cass wild. At first, Beau isn’t sure she’s right for them . . . and lately, all he desires is a little alone time with Cass to explore their new intimacy. But it’s only a matter of time before Cass breaks through both of their defenses. Because when seduction is the game plan, he always plays to win.
Broken Play is the first book in a new football romance series called Birmingham Rebels and I liked it very much!!
Marian Treadwell is the new Assistant Offensive coach of the Birmingham Rebels. She knows that she has a lot of pressure in her job to make the team better. It’s pre-season and she is working on getting the team to work together as a unit.
Beau Perez and Cass Zielinski are two offensive linemen on the team. They are best friends and are always together. She’s seen a video of Beau and Cass together and can’t stop thinking about what she had seen in the video when they are together. The last thing Marian needs is to start a relationship with any of her players.
In addition to not wanting to risk her job, Marian doesn’t want to get involved because she had a bad experience in college with football players on her father’s team.
Beau and Cass are attracted to Marian and work on “breaking down” her walls to show her that the three of them can be good together. Their relationship progresses, including helping her live a fantasy that she has had for a long time.
This is the first football themed book I have read. I loved that the team has a female Assistant Coach.
This is a hot, sizzling story. Not for reading at work on your lunch break.
It’s a great start to a new series and I’m looking forward to reading about the other characters we met in this book.
