Eric Sapp may no longer play for the Mavericks, but he’s still one of the guys. No one could have imagined how much his life would change when he agreed to help his former teammates mourn the end of their run for the pennant. After stopping a brutal attack, Eric is forced to face the feelings that’ve been growing for his roommate, Drew. That’d be much easier if Drew wasn’t hell-bent on pushing everyone away as he recovers. Neither of them were counting on Bryce Shaw. He and Drew enjoyed the one night they spent together, but knew it was unlikely they’d be anything more since they lived in different parts of the country. After Bryce is relocated to help a failing LGBT homeless outreach, he wants to explore something more with the Mavericks’ short stop. As much as Eric wishes he could be the one to help his friend, he knows Bryce holds the key to Drew’s recovery. Will pushing the two back together be the biggest mistake of his life or will they all learn there is strength in numbers?
I absolutely love this incredible series by Sloan Johnson. I fell for Drew right away and am so happy he finally gets his happily ever after. Drew’s story is a little different – just a warning, this is a menage story line, but when you read it, you know that Drew couldn’t have had it any other way.
Drew is still getting over Cam. His best friend not only fell in love with his teammate Jason but now he is off fulfilling his life long dreams, far away, when he seems to need him the most. After a devastatingly hard ending to the season – which he feels he’s to blame for, the last thing he wants to do is go out and drink with the guys after the game. While walking from his car to the bar, Drew is attacked. Luckily his roommate is walking by on his way to meet up with Drew and sees him being attacked in the alley, getting there just in time.
Eric since coming back home from Seattle after the end of the season, as been growing close to Drew. There is an attraction there that he’s not sure if it’s reciprocated by the much younger Drew. And then there’s Bryce. Bryce and Drew are friends, but he can see the spark behind both of their eyes whenever they are together.
As Drew is recovering, his feelings for Eric and Bryce starts to grow. How can he choose between the two men that have started to mean everything to him. One is his rock, the one who calms him. The other is the Alpha that puts him in his place. Can he choose who will take over his heart? Or is there room in there for both?
Loved their story of finding their place in each others lives. Amazingly hot and emotional. Fans of the series will love Triple Play.
Also in the Series
Sloan Johnson is a big city girl trapped in a country girl’s life. While she longs for the hustle and bustle of New York City or Las Vegas, she hasn’t yet figured out how to sit on the deck with her morning coffee, watching the deer and wild turkeys in the fields while surrounded by concrete and glass. When she was three, her parents received their first call from the principal asking them to pick her up from school. Apparently, if you aren’t enrolled, you can’t attend classes, even in Kindergarten.
The next week, she was in preschool and started plotting her first story soon after. Later in life, her parents needed to do something to help their socially awkward, uncoordinated child come out of her shell and figured there was no better place than a bar on Wednesday nights. It’s a good thing they did because this is where she found her love of reading and writing. Who needs socialization when you can sit alone in your bedroom with a good book?
Now, Sloan is a tattooed mom with a mohawk and two kids. She’s been kicked out of the PTA in two school districts and is no longer asked to help with fundraisers because she’s been known to lose herself with a good book and forget she has somewhere to be.
