When it comes to love, go big or go home.

Charles “Cash” Carmichael traded his high-rise condo and family-firm career for a job coaching soccer for Chicago’s inner-city kids. He’s adjusting to living on minimum wage when his young cousin, newly out and running away from home, shows up on his less-than-luxurious doorstep.

Angsty teens definitely aren’t Cash’s thing. He needs local backup, and there’s only one name he can think of: Stephany Tyler. Back in the day, the bisexual Steph was the perfect friend with benefits until she fell in love with a woman.

To his relief, his former friend steps up to the plate. Soon, though, Cash finds himself feeling the familiar need to keep her in his bed, and in his life. But Steph, burned by the ex-girlfriend and by the absentee dad she’s been trying to connect with, won’t risk her heart again.

Good thing Cash believes in leaving it all on the field. If he can just convince Steph to get in the game, there’s a chance they can both win.

Why am I waiting for this? - I loved the first two books in this series which are m/m NA romances. Actually, we meet Cash and Steph and I absolutely lovedthem, him especially. Now, I'm really excited to read their story, already as adults coming together. Another thing I'm very very happy about how inclusive this series is shaping to be - we have straight, gay, bi characters and their stories come to show only one things - Love is Love.

  1. I really, really like that cover! I haven't read the rest of the series but it definitely sounds interesting and i really want to read more books that cover all sorts of people. I read a lot of fantasy and the diversity isn't really there yet. Thanks for posting :)
