Publisher Description

Donovan Bane loves playing rugby for the Sydney Smoke. And if that means he has to keep his sexuality a secret, that’s a sacrifice he’s prepared to make—for now. He’d rather be known for his footy skills than being the first actively pro rugby player in Australia to officially come out. And that means no dating, no relationships, no sex. Nothing but playing ball.

Until Beckett Stanton changes everything.

Beck is out and proud—and not looking for a guy who isn’t. Been there, done that, total disaster. He certainly can’t afford to compromise his new job for the Sydney Smoke just because he’s locked eyes with Donovan Bane.

Big, gruff, and athletic isn’t usually Beck’s type, but for some reason this man is ticking every box.

Maybe he’s the one to show Donovan everything he’s been missing…

For the first time, Donovan isn’t playing by the rules. With Beck, he’s indulging in things he knows he can’t have. But when their relationship gets serious, Donovan faces a showdown between the career he loves and the man he’s falling for.

How can he possibly have both when losing is not an option?

Playing It Safe

ARC for honest review with no compensation Received from NetGalley and Entangled 4 stars

Playing it Safe is book 7 in the Sydney Smoke Rugby series by Amy Andrews and her first M/M book.

I felt this book was well written showed heart, steam and how to navigate the world when you have hidden your true identity but know that it’s time to reveal all!

Maybe a learning experience for many…

Closets tend to be dark and foreboding… Donovan was deep in that closet and determined to use it to protect himself, his family and his career. So, when a “out” gay man get’s close and offers to be a friend and mentor, Donovan allows some light to beam in from Beck… This is a very believable storyline and should be relatable to gay guys who haven’t found their way out of the closet. I liked that this was a story of two mature men, rather than the “coming of age” teens. Some of the real consequences of coming out are glossed over, but the process of mature men with legitimate concerns about consequences should help closeted men, as well as educating friends and family about what closeted gay men are experiencing. Some closeted gay men may never come out, and that’s okay; and others may find the courage to live their truth. Very thoughtful story.
