Publisher's summary

My buddies made me do it. I swear.

I didn’t plan to bid big on a date with my baseball player best friend at the auction. But he looked really good in that tailored suit, and I can't resist a dare.

The media jumps all over the story–the city’s new quarterback nabs a date with the bigshot star shortstop.

Not so fast–we’re just friends.

Until we hit the links for the strictly platonic date I won. Suddenly, I'm looking at my silver-tongued, devilishly handsome best bud in a whole new light–and it’s dark and dirty.

We cross way over the friendship line at my place that night, but in the morning we agree it can’t happen again. Trouble is, we can’t keep our hands off each other, especially not when we’re stuck in the same hotel room at our friend’s wedding.

But Tanner wants a real relationship, and I’m only serious about football. So when my second season as a starter begins next week, our late-night games (and talks, and sleepovers, and morning coffees) will have to end.

Except, as the cutoff looms closer, I’m feeling a whole lot more than friendship, and that’s a big problem for my career....

Don't miss this red-hot friends-to-lovers, only-one-bed-in-the-room MM sports romance from NYT best seller Lauren Blakely!

Another HIT!

It started out as friends and a Bid and it turned into so much more than either of them could have hoped for.

I just loved the whole story. I liked that they were friends before, I liked that they had their own careers and that they were both so supportive of each other. The chemistry is crazy wild and can’t be tamed once it was unleashed even if they wanted it to be.

The communication and putting your heart on the line never gets old even if it is the hard thing to do.

The narration is fabulous as a huge Teddy fan he never disappoints 💕. Jacob is great as always.

It's a miss for me

Manhandled is a MM contemporary, sports, friends to lovers, romance. The main characters are Tanner, a pro baseball player, and Luke, a pro football player. Find this author to be very hit or miss for me. I either love the book or really just…don’t. This book was a miss for me. I didn’t find the characters to be at all unique. I couldn’t tell the difference between the two except for the fact that their POV chapters were labeled. Also, I fell asleep twice while trying to listen to the ending and didn’t care enough to try for a third so besides the fact that they are together, I don’t know how it ended. I really like both of the narrators and thought they read well, but they weren’t enough to redeem this book for me. 2 stars.

Soooo Good!!!

As always this is another incredible story. The narrators are awesome too. Can’t wait for the next from this trio of artist (author & narrators).

Last one for me..

I keep trying her books hoping I’ll like one but nope. I couldn’t even finish this one. Her stories are beyond boring and lacking any substance at all. A baseball team where everyone is gay? Really?

Friends to lovers romance

This is the fifth book in the Winner Takes All Series. Luke and Tanner's story is passionate, steamy, and engaging. This is a great friends to lovers MM romance. Teddy Hamilton and Jacob Morgan did an excellent job bringing this story to life.

sexy, low angst

I needed a light, steamy palate cleanser after listening to a couple of heavy books in a row. This hit the jackpot for me. It was a friend's to lovers secret relationship with plenty of hot sex. But it was pretty predictable and nothing really memorable. I didn't listen for a day and I had forgotten what was happening already. But if you're looking for something that has no triggers, this is it.

And Jacob Morgan and Teddy Hamilton are perfection as always.
