Publisher's Summary

A "pumped up" version of the Volley Balls story, twice as long as the original.  

A double dose of alpha male might be better than one.

Despite just getting out of an abusive relationship with an asshole alpha, David Underwood’s wandering glance lands on two hot members of the Australian volleyball team on Laguna Beach and gets him harassed again. Still, when the delicious Gareth Marshall proves his interest by coming out to his team, David succumbs to his attraction. But Gareth’s volleyball partner, Edge, who’s equally hot, makes the lovers’ lives miserable.  

For Gareth, a lifetime of hiding his orientation - and his attraction - from his best friend, Edge, as well as everyone else around him, adds up to hurt and frustration. David’s the first man to ever compete with Edge for Gareth’s passion. But Edge has secrets of his own, and David’s ex-lover will never be happy without David under his fist. With everything stacked against him, can a gay Laguna man find happiness with an alpha male - or two?

Really entertaining!

Great match up with Tara Lain and Nick J. Russo. The story was a perfect blend of hot sex, romance with a bit of drama. Highly recommended!

Art gallery owner David hasn't been lucky in love. With a restraining order out against his abusive ex he's trying to stay away from alpha males, even though they totally do it for him. But he can't help himself when he meets, and falls in love pretty quickly, with Australian volley ball player Gareth, who's still in the closet but willing to bust down that door for David.

Unfortunately, Gareth's best friend since childhood, and volley ball partner, Edge isn't happy with this new development - but the reason why is a complete mind blower.

Short, slightly angsty, and with a twist at the end that I absolutely did not see coming, it took me a little to get into the rhythm of the story, but once I was in I was riveted. A lot of that is due to Nick J. Russo's narration. While he doesn't have the best Australian accents, he does a great job giving each character a distinctive voice and with his timing and the way he performs the more emotional scenes was absolutely wonderful.

If you are looking for a super hot, sexy, insta-love romance with a twist, and great narration - this should definitely be on your listen list.

The threesome didn't work for me in this one

I really wanted to like this story, but the threesome didn't work for me. I felt like it was forced when, given more page time and content, it could have been amazing. That was another issue for me from start to finish, the story felt rushed and compact when it could have been better had the characters and menage been fleshed out.

Narration was amazing. Loved what Russo did with the characters and making sure each had their own voice.
