    Playing can be fun

    This is the 2nd book in the Birmingham Rebels series. As always, I recommend to the reader that you read the books in the order intended. That being said, this is a book that can be read as a standalone if you choose. Tyler Oakes and Brian Mason makes beautiful football together. They did back in college and Tyler played one mean game. Now, Brian is back and a part of the Rebels coach staff. Can they ignore what is so strong between them? To make is more complex, there is the incredible Randi McInish. Tough cop, tough sister, hot woman, and all around sexy gal who likes them both. Together or apart. Randi wants to stand on her own two feet, however, and guys that want to "take care of her" are usually thrown out. All three of them together make beautiful music. In order to save Ty's career and the oddball relationships he has started, Ty is trying to decide whether to keep or let them both go. Ty always feel like he is 2nd best, and he is waiting for his chance at real love. This book was a surprise for me. I never expected to feel so torn about which way I wanted the characters I was reading to go! I was pleasantly spooked toward the end there and very happy with how the HEA was resolved. ***This ARC was given by Netgalley.com and its publisher for an honest review.

    This is one hot and dirty book; I loved it!!

    Warning – this book contains lots of f-bombs and other strong language as well as hot, sexy m/m and m/m/f encounters. If any of this offends you don’t read this book and then leave a negative review. OK, the above warning was for people who may not have read any of Samantha Kane’s books before and also because I hate it when readers pick up a book and then leave a negative review because it contains things they find objectionable. Personally, I love ALL of Samantha Kane’s books. I’m most familiar with her Brothers in Arms series set in the Regency period but I’m so glad that she’s started this new contemporary series; I might even learn to like football as a result. lol Tyler Oakes (Ty) identifies himself as bi-sexual but he hasn’t been with anyone in a long time. He goes looking for some action at the Kitty Licks bar and gets more than he bargained for when he walks into the middle of a drug bust. Captivated by the smart-alecky, dirty talking, undercover cop, Randi McInish, he wants to see more of her. Randi doesn’t do relationships and when Brian, a man from Ty’s past, shows up she decides she needs to bow out and let those two figure things out. What Randi doesn’t realize is that Brian and Ty don’t feel complete without her. While this book is the second in the Birmingham Rebels series it can be enjoyed without reading the first book (but it’s great, too, so you should read it). This story probably has the coarsest language, or maybe just a bit more of it, than Ms. Kane’s other books but it totally fits the characters in the story. I love the way she connects the first book to this one and yet also tells a story that completely stands alone; I doubt that this is an easy thing to do. There is a whole football team of interesting characters and I hope a book is written for each one of them! ARC provided by NetGalley for an honest review.

    Football has never been so hot and sexy!

    I fell in love with Samantha Kane’s books when I began reading her Brothers in Arms series. I very quickly realized that she really had a handle on the deep-seated psyche of what bonded her characters. That series dealt with the aftermath of war and the very real bonding of men who serve together and sometimes the love that grows between them and the women necessary to their lives. I wasn’t quite sure how a series about football players was going to compare to a series about soldiers of the Napoleonic Wars. I needn't have worried because Ms. Kane certainly knows her stuff whether writing historical or contemporary when it comes to the MMF ménage. Her characters are complex and her stories character driven. Calling the Play is no exception. Tyler Oakes is the newly recruited Quarterback for the Birmingham Rebels. He’s an equal opportunity lover with a history of partying hearty. His partying left him holding the bag for a friend in the wrong place at the wrong time… a choice he’s paid for in his career big time. Now he finally has the opportunity to turn things around and get back into the NFL. What he wasn’t counting on was running into Brian, his intern coach from college… also the one that didn’t just walk, but ran away. A quick stop at a bar that’s name shouts “hookup haven” has Ty meeting a very sexy Sissy and very quickly finding himself in the middle of an undercover drug bust. When “Sissy” decides to commandeer his Porsche for a high-speed chase, Ty decides to go along for the ride. After all, he has every intention of taking the undercover cop, Randi McInish for a ride when they’re done with this business. What he didn’t expect was just how long or rough a ride it would be. Nor did he realize that Randi would be the perfect creme filling in a Ty and Brian sandwich. Randi McInish is a cop assigned to burglary. When it’s discovered that she was recently hit on by a person of interest she’s temporarily assigned to an undercover op for vice with her brother as her superior. Life is hard enough working as a female detective in a male-centric field, but working for the older brother who raised her seriously adds to the challenge. With four older brothers and a cop for a father, she has learned to put away her girly side. When the grandmother who raised her, then her father passed, her mother left for greener pastures. Her older brothers took over. Family life for Randi was anything but normal. Randi and her youngest brother were illegitimate. Her three oldest brothers were her father’s legitimate sons. That being said her father made sure they all had a relationship with each other. A very abnormal childhood has Randi putting up roadblocks when it comes to relationships. For the first time though she’s ready to consider more than a one or two night stand when it comes to Ty… that is until she see’s the very real undercurrents of love between Ty and Brian. She shares one hot evening of loving between the two of them and then she’s doing the typical Randi and running from any potential relationship that might be there. When Brian was contacted by the Birmingham Rebel’s with a coaching opportunity he jumped at the chance. Eight years have been long enough to come to the conclusion he ran from a potential relationship he’s missed every day since. Twenty-twenty hindsight might not be enough, though. With Randi running as fast as she can from any potential relationship they might have things aren’t exactly falling into place with him and Ty. The reality is, Randi is the glue that holds them together. But when the coach realizes just what’s at stake and what it will take to put it all together he does just what he’s good at… he instructs, he trains, he guides… in other words, he manipulates the players into position and goes for the win. A win-win for all of them. Ms. Kane has a winning series with the Birmingham Rebel’s. Once again she has picked out a lineup of stellar men that have their issues and the women that are the perfect glue to piece them all together in a cohesive unit. The Rebel’s are a team of rejects sorely needing a second chance. Ms. Kane gives them the perfect “family” to find their redemption. I would highly recommend this newest release by Ms. Kane to anyone who loves a great sports romance, especially those who love a great erotic MMF ménage romance. *****Reviewed for Xtreme-Delusions*****
