ARC Book review: Broken Play (Birmingham Rebels #1) by Samantha Kane

Available Sept 1st 2015
eARC Provided by publisher through Netgalley

Birmingham Rebels offensive linemen Beau Perez and Cass Zielinski are inseparable, on and off the field. Cass, the captain with the cowboy swagger, is a loose cannon. Beau, the veteran tight end, is cool under pressure. And ever since they were caught on tape in a steamy threesome, their exploits have fueled more than a few tabloid headlines—and naughty fantasies.
Marian Treadwell knows all about the video. And now that she’s the Rebels’ new assistant offensive coach, she can’t look at Beau and Cass without picturing their hard, naked bodies—with her pressed in between. Marian would like nothing more than to indulge those impulses, but she knows better than to get too close to her players, a bunch of adrenaline-fueled alpha males who don’t always follow the rules.
Just the thought of sharing the gorgeous yet guarded Marian drives Cass wild. At first, Beau isn’t sure she’s right for them . . . and lately, all he desires is a little alone time with Cass to explore their new intimacy. But it’s only a matter of time before Cass breaks through both of their defenses. Because when seduction is the game plan, he always plays to win.
I thought this would be a sports story mixed with a romance. It turns out i was wrong. Beau and Cass have been best friends for a long time. Wherever Cass goes Beau follows. Now with the Birmingham Rebels Cass is the captain and needs to make this year a good one. Marian Treadwell is the new assistant offensive coach. She know her stuff but wants to tread lightly while showing the players she can help them win. She needs to prove to herself she can be successful without her dad who is a famous head coach for college team. The newest recruit refuses to show up to practice so when they arrange a phone call everyone is surprised when Marian speaks up to talk him into coming when so far he's been a no go. That's when secrets tumble out. This is more of a erotica though than a sports story. Cass and Beau have a sex tape as a threesome and Marian has seen it and imagines herself in the middle. Cass and Beau want her too but they also want each other. While Beau who is the rougher looking  with a matching background comes off as the sweet one of the two and Cass comes off as a super alpha caveman.  There are several sexual themes in this story and i was a little surprised to see them but this is the first book by this author for me so i don't know if it's the norm in her work. I can only say it was interesting and i am still not sure if i liked it or not. Over all the book could've used more story and less sex and some of the dialogue was a bit cheesy but if you want to read a book that will sizzle your brain a little this one can do that. I am intrigued enough to read on to book two.
