Perfect for fans of Shayla Black and Lexi Blake, the deeply sensual new Birmingham Rebels series introduces an unforgettable team of chiseled football gods—and the daring, provocative games they play behind closed doors.
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 intended for mature audiences.

Karia’s Review
When they say this is for mature audiences…they mean this is ménage and detailed. Just saying.

I liked Beau and loved Cass…but honestly, Marian fell flat for me and I wasn’t rooting for her to get these guys. This story is the growth between the two guys more than between them and Marian. She really has “insta-love” for both leads and I was a bit ticked at her for starting their relationship off with only one of them separate from the other. This truly is a dynamic between Beau and Cass, who are joined by Marian who in turn changes the context but never the intent (if that makes sense…I don’t want to be spoilery!).
For Beau, it has always been Cass…any way he can have him in his life. When they were apart, he did a lot of destructive things…to himself, his career and his reputation. Together, Cass cleans Beau up, gets him on his team and keeps Beau on the straight and narrow. In return, Beau gives Cass his power…Cass makes all the decision on literally everything: when they work out, what they eat, where they live, when they talk to the team, what women they date…everything. Beau is happy having Cass any way he can…until Marian. She makes him want to be a better man: not for her or for Cass, but for himself. She sees past his addictions and weakness and gives Beau a silent demand for his dominance. This was the power play between the three and actually the best part in the book. As the book moved forward, I really enjoyed the more natural evolution of their relationship…up until the team dinner at Beau and Cass’s house. That night was just too out there (IMHO)…but read the book for yourself and then lets chat! I would love to hear what you think. Enjoy!
