Blurb: Love can hit you hard before you even see it coming….
When rugby player Liam transfers to Melbourne, he’s blindsided by his attraction to the hottest lifeguard on the beach. Luckily Matty knows mouth-to-mouth….
Liam’s left his friends and family—everything comforting and familiar—back in Canberra. He knows it all comes with the job, adjusting to a new city and a new team, but he’s lonely. Maybe it’s time to find something outside his career to fulfill him.
Working as a lifeguard and being by the ocean is Matty’s dream come true. The big, blond, blue-eyed hottie new to his beach catches his attention right away. When he runs into Liam again at the pub, he takes the shy league player under his wing and into his group of mates, and they become fast friends.
But when they go from friends to lovers, the emotions that come with their deepening romance catch them both off guard. Can two men without any experience at relationships navigate their way to steady ground?
Review: This was first published by Totally Bound Publishing company.
Liam left his home and his family back where he was from when he went pro. It was the life of a pro sports player. When out at the beach he has noticed the hottest man guarding the beach and swimmers. When he runs into him once more, he is left with a need to breathe. The sparks fly between them and damn if it doesn’t get hotter.
Matty seems to be the perfect man for him and has the same heated feelings for Liam. He brings the poor man into his group of friends and they are a quirky group. They seem to have more drama then one person should have.
I have never been a fan of sports or reading about them so I wasn’t really sure what to expect. However this story seemed more focus on everyone else and the sports then the actual growing relationship between the two men. Although it was not as much about sports as I would have expected though. So that part was kind of a nice change. It is a very slow paced story with a slow burn. It didn’t really have a lot of depth that one would expect to a story. I did like the kittens though. I didn’t really understand some of the words that was used, but after a bit of looking it up figured it out.
I have read a few stories by these authors and have always loved their books. However I hate to admit that I wasn’t drawn into this book like I should have been. It just didn’t call to me and keep my attention. It is a very cute story and the characters were enjoyable. I would have liked more about them then their friends, but it was still sweet. I just didn’t really care for it and am not sure if I would continue this series or not. We will see on that.
