    Hot gorgeous professional rugby player Liam sees hot gorgeous professional lifeguard Matty on a beach in Melbourne and when they run into each other at a local pub sparks fly It takes a while for each man to realize they play on the same team well Liam is bisexual so I suppose they play in the same league? as they slowly move from friends to lovers but they soon having hot gorgeous sex together Recent acuisition Liam is just finding his footing with his new team and isn't out to anyone yet although his first cautious attempts meet with no homophobic outrage Liam is welcomed into Matty's group of friends each with their own drama Essentially this is the plot of BlindsidedWhile this story features two very likable characters there is no deep emotional impact in their relationship and little development of Liam and Matty as a couple I felt too much of the story revolves around the exploits of their various friends view spoilerMatty's friends Sean and Colin are roommates with benefits and Sean is hesitate to come out to their friends; Caro is a former professional surfer with body issues because she doesn't have an overtly feminine physiue and she is enamoured with Jack; Liam's teammate Leon may be gay and Matty's friend Korey is extremely homophobic hide spoiler

    35 StarsI love a rugby romance I liked the core story between Matty and Liam very much It is slow burn friends to lovers though they are always attracted to each other and it was really nice to watch them fall in like and then love Liam gets kittens and its great However there isn't enough of rugby or of being a professionial life guard The friend drama is intersting but the writing in these section is less well done though Liam's rugby pal is interesting and I kinda hope for a follow up storyThe setting could have played and larger part as wellSo I liked the love story and some of the secondary characters but depth is needed in terms of setting and career

    35 StarsThis was a fun sweet little read I'll round up on this one because I enjoyed the read Liam and Matty were very sweet together I liked how they became friends first and lovers later They really got to know each other and everything moved smoothly into a serious relationship This story had a lot less of the sports elements and a lot about the developing relationship I liked that both men really were very comfortable in themselves Neither flaunted their sexuality but neither did they deny it I liked that with this there wasn't a huge deal made about a gay sports player but really was just a true love story between these two men

    45 StarsMan talk about your slow burns this story takes slow burn to a whole new level but I absolutely loved it Matty and Liam were such sweet and lovable guys and I really enjoyed getting to know them They fit together perfectly and although I wasn’t sure they would ever get it together they eventually manage to and once they did it was sweet explosive and passionate I loved the progression of their relationship from friends to lovers it felt natural and organic They really took their time getting to know one another I thought Matty’s job as a lifeguard was interesting and I especially loved the scenes that took place at the beachBoth Matty and Liam had interesting friends some of which really piued my interest especially Sean Colin and Leon I’m hoping the authors will give these men their own stories Matty and Liam were lucky to have a great support system in their friends and family The was a well written and enjoyable story The collaboration between the authors was seamless and I couldn’t tell where one’s writing began and the other’s ended I absolutely loved this story and am definitely hoping for in the future Recommendable copy provided by Dreamspinner Press in exchange for an honest review

    A Joyfully Jay review 35 starsThis is a slow burn love story I’ll be honest I wanted sports Also I felt as if these guys really could have been anywhere—particularly a west coast US locale—instead of Melbourne Considering what I know about Aussies the ozone layer and rising skin cancer rates well these folks spend an unexpected amount of time in the direct beachy sunlight Setting aside a few dialect choices I couldn’t feel any Australian vibes coming throughI liked how Liam built good friendships and I loved how Matty and Liam dealt with bigots in their midst Liam who is bisexual was nervous to come out to his teammates and the situation there turns out better than expected I felt the angst was low which was nice Unfortunately the story felt a bit generic Like with the setting and the lack of rugby these could have been any two guys anywhere For me that was a detractor though it might not be a trouble to other readersRead Veronica’s review in its entirety here

    Can I just say how much I loved this book? Didn’t understand half of the Aussie isms and rugby flies right over my head but I adored this book It was just so much fun “He’d never met or spoken to the man but he instinctively knew from his orientation toward the water and regular presence that the ocean drew him in that he took some sort of solace from the constancy of the sea meeting sand water meeting sky” Liam after moving to Melbourne to join the local rugby team is lonely But he finds some type of solace at the nearby beach where he can be in the midst of a crowd even if he is alone It doesn’t hurt that the eye candy lifeguard is there too When he runs into the man at the local pub Liam takes a chance and approaches him hoping to strike up a conversation if nothing else What he doesn’t know is that the lifeguard Matty has been watching him as wellWhen the object of his lust just happens to walk up to him at his local pub Matty is over the moon But it is than lust that makes him happy to finally get to the talk to the giant of a man Liam is fun to be with Friendship with the large man is easy and soon there is a lot than friendship brewing between the pair But not everyone would be thrilled to find out that these two men want each other and with each step closer they have to fight the weight of Liam’s first love– rugby– and Matty’s friends One wrong move and someone could end up being hurt Or heartbrokenBook four in in this series has to be my favorite to date I know I said that about the last book but still There was just so much happy tension in this book that I spent a majority of my time reading it with a smile on my face The banter between all the characters was great and once again I have to say that the secondary characters almost stole the show Almost Liam and Matty were great like steal my breath great And hot And funny And sexy Let’s just say that the dance they have going on between them is probably my favorite aspect of this book I love how they seem to dance around each other but when they finally snap they sure do it with panachePart of my overall enjoyment had to do with how much I loved the setting Australia is brilliantly casted in this book Granted a lot of the slang went straight over my head –but in a way that was completely understandable and enjoyable It was like learning a new language One I will thankfully not be tested on –though if my French studies had included teaching me slang for condoms and few peppery curse words I might not have fared so badly at the oral While my love of Australia is not anywhere near my England obsession it has been the setting for some of my favorite series so it was fun to fall back into the Aussie mindsetI loved Shelly Liam’s cousin and adored almost the whole bunch of Matty’s friends Well except Korey Korey is a douchebag who is going to lose everything and deserve it if he can’t learn to keep his mouth shut or you know just grow the hell up I really hope Caro ends up getting her man that Sean and Collin get their act together and that someone can finally remember Hadrian’s girl’s name or at least narrow it down a bit Oh and could I please reuest a book on Leon cause I need to find out what is up with him And who if anyone is taking a nice ocean side ride with taciturn rugby playerMy one and rather small issue with this book is that climax while enjoyable is rather low key I expected some type of reaction from the whole macho rugby side and it never happened We did get a lovely and highly deserved bar fight though so I am not too disappointed I wish there was a bit of a stronger climax but I liked that it avoided the whole cliché locker room backlash and I loved how relaxed some of the players wereThis book is not big on angst but it than makes up for it with a great secondary cast a steaming pair of protagonists and two adorable kittens I smiled my way through the entire story and got to google some rather interesting turn of phrases I highly recommend this story And am really looking forward to whatever Chase and Rhodes have for us next This book was provided free in exchange for a fair and honest review for Love Bytes Go there to check out other reviews author interviews and all those awesome giveaways Click below

    35 stars I was given a copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads Australian rugby offers a much welcome twist to the sports romance genre and this story twists the conventional tropes a little bit further because most of the story happens during evenings weekends and the offseasonI loved Liam from the first pages and his lonely life after a surprise transfer to a new city is humanising and makes him feel less like a celebrity and like an ordinary guy At the start Matty is probably the interesting character but his tiresome workpubhome becomes a little bit tedious While I liked the idea of focusing on Liam’s life off the pitch and Matty’s life beyond the beach the reality is that work is the most interesting part of both men’s lives Their pub and Netflix routines aren’t terribly exciting and the dramas between Matty’s pub mates didn’t really hold my attention At times the book dragged and it felt like I was stalking a slightly boring colleague’s social media accounts than like I was reading a romance with professional sports action I like the low key approach to sexuality in this book The usual coming out in the spotlight angst is missing Liam isn’t really closeted and isn’t really bothered However it takes Liam and Matty far too long to figure out the reciprocal attraction between them There is slow burn romance and there’s ridiculous This one falls closer to ridiculous

    Blindsided Men of Sports Dreamspinner Press #1 by TA Chase Devon Rhodes4 starsMM Sports romanceTriggers HomophobiaI was given this book for an honest review by Wicked ReadsLiam is learning a new town He has just been traded to a new rugby team and despite loving what he does he misses his old town He found a beach he likes to freuent and while there catches the eye of lifeguard Matty Matty has a great group of friends They usually gather at the local watering hole at night to laugh and catch up He sees Liam while working and surreptitiously watches him Liam is one attractive guyNeedless to say the sports truly take a background to the romance that is budding between the characters It is a slow burn romance and one that is well developed I am truly hoping that Caro and Leon get their own story soon

    I've enjoyed this series so far with it's stories set across different countries and involving sports that don't get written about so much This one was special being set in home country and involving a rugby player and a surf lifesaverThe story was nice a gentle build of a relationship that begins when Liam moves to Melbourne as part of a professional transfer and sees Matty working at the beachI liked the story It was cute and fun I liked the characters and the settingI enjoyed seeing Aussie terminology because yes 'thongs' are footwear and bum bags are useful for holding your stuff and the local expressionsI am going to make a comment here because it is noticeable through the story although it didn't detract from my enjoyment at allthe terminology does get a bit mixed up Mom makes an appearance they have vacations not holidays they cook on the grill get their groceries in sacks not bags have both an ass and an arse and attended grade schoolIn other areas I was educated I'm not sure how common it is maybe it's used all the time or or maybe it's a Melbourne thing or maybe I've been under a rock but I've never heard of a franger before It turns out it's a condom

    Whilst I loved the story as an actual Australian who lives in Melbourne the slang used was appalling I have never heard half the words the characters used it was the worst type of cliche purpertrated by someone who watched Crocodile Dundee 20 years ago and now thinks they know everything about Australia I am not actually sure who they were trying to impress with the characters speaking like that 99% of the readers will have no idea what they were talking about
