The rules of the game don’t apply off the football field in this steamy slow-burn M/M sports romance—the first book of the Barons series.
New York Barons tight end Gavin Brawley is suspended from the team and on house arrest after a video of him brawling goes viral. Gavin already has a reputation as a jerk with a temper on and off the field—which doesn’t help him once he finds himself on the wrong side of the law. And while he’s been successful professionally, he’s never been lucky when it comes to love.
Noah Monroe is a recent college grad looking for a job—any job—to pay off his mounting student debt. Working as Gavin’s personal assistant/babysitter seems like easy money. But Noah isn’t prepared for the electrifying tension between him and the football player. He’s not sure if he’d rather argue with Gavin or tackle him to the floor. But both men know the score, and neither is sure what will happen once Gavin's timeout is over…
Everyone needs a Noah in their lives; as a friend or a lover. And you just can’t help but fall in love with Gavin - his honesty, loyalty, and want to be desired by him (like being broken off like a kindergarten crayon).
Read it in 8 hours!
Awesome writing. I literally couldn't put it down- i only slept for 4 hours and worked a full day before picking it up again. Great introduction to the romance novel world. Keep it up Santino! Can't wait to see what else you come up with.
Oh the feels!
Another beautiful emotional ride from Santino, I truly enjoyed these characters who were written wonderfully.
