Blurb: Things could not be better for star rugby player Conor Murphy. He has a hot boyfriend that worships him and he is back in his rightful place, leader of the Dublin Chiefs Rugby team.

His new boyfriend Oisin has the hottest ass in town and yet things are not right. There is pretense between them. Not on Oisin’s side, no, the man loves him. It’s Conor who is not tackling straight. His mind is filled with thoughts of another. Sean, the love of his life, is single again and Conor can’t help but think what if.

What if he had the courage to end things with Oisin and take a punt with Sean. Self doubt fills Conor’s mind. Can he really do this to Oisin? Doesn’t he deserve better? Does Sean even feel anything for him?

It’s time to decide what he wants, Oisin or Sean? Will he do the right thing or follow his heart?


Woohoo!  Conor is back at the top of his game again, at least on the field.  There is, of course, a lot of rugby action this time around with the guys heading to London for a tournament.  But, this time around, things are a bit different for Conor, as he now has a boyfriend, Oisin, a sexy little sub that Conor is learning to play the dom for.  I quite enjoyed watching Conor making Oisin suffer through a bit of orgasm denial here and there, but there is also a bit of adjusting going on with Conor getting used to being in a bit of a relationship.  Oisin is sure to make it known to all that Conor is off limits, which was a bit disappointing when some of the regulars are back on the radar.

And then there is the Sean issue.  Boy did I want to bitch slap that boy!  Conor and Sean are pussy-footing around each other, speaking but not finding the right things to say, then not speaking at all.  Sean seems to be having second thoughts about everything where Conor is concerned, and Conor seems to be having the same.  Sadly, things are still very up in the air with these two, and I’m really looking forward to the finishing chapter to see if they can work things out.

This one started a little slow for me, as it wasn’t quite the fast-pace sex fest as the first three.  There is still plenty of good stuff though, and if you love the tone and humor of Conor and his crazy tale, you will find that this one is chock full of that.  I laughed out loud more than once at some of Conor’s descriptions and am quite hooked on this fun and sexy series.  I’m ready for the Sean/Conor grand finale though and eager for the story to continue in book 5.

Overall Impression: I really liked it

*I received a copy of this book from the author in return for a fair and honest review.*
