Rugby—it’s all about scoring, whether it’s on the field… or off.
For the first time ever, enjoy the entire Confessions of a Gay Rugby Player series in one lusty volume, including previously released Books 1 – 4 as well as the never-before-released final Book 5 which closes out this sweaty saga of love and lust in the locker room!
Star Irish rugby player, Conor Murphy, lives and breathes rugby. He spends his weekends playing rugby, drinking beer, and singing songs with his teammates. There is only one thing he loves more than rugby, and that is hot rugby players. But after the final whistle sounds, the real competition begins: the hunt for the hottest men.
Conor’s muscular body and roguish good looks ensure he can have his pick of the sexiest players. But what happens when this alpha male meets his match on and off the field? Who will come out on top when he meets the horniest rugby players from the USA? Can two alpha males have the night of their lives?
While on tour in Copenhagen, it seems nothing is going to stop the Irish from bringing home the trophy and taking the spoils of victory. And while teammates Conor and Sean work up a sweat on the field to claim their prize, the real competition begins after the whistle blows, as the lads discover that Copenhagen is full of hot distractions.
To be sure, there is nothing rotten in the state of Denmark! In fact, Danish men are ripe for the picking. They love sex, have no inhibitions, and they want Irish meat. But as Conor and Sean put their friendship aside in the pursuit of the hottest Danish players, the question is, will their friendship survive the real sport of man hunting?
This should be the greatest moment in Conor’s rugby playing career. But falling in love and a loss of form have brought him to his knees, and led him to question who he is. It’s no fun, not being the centre of attention. Is he the man he thought he was? Replaced on the pitch and now replaced in the affections of his best friend Sean. What is it about Sean’s new boyfriend he finds so irritating? Why can’t he accept them being together? Conor’s heart is filled with rage by the thought of them. A rage that he can’t contain, and that leads him to cross a line that should never be crossed. And when Conor acts like a fool, there is only one thing for it. To be punished by two hot Doms. Maybe they will bring him to his senses, and take his mind off things that cannot be…or maybe not!
Things could not be better for star rugby player Conor Murphy. He has a hot boyfriend that worships him and he is back in his rightful place, leader of the Dublin Chiefs Rugby team.
His new boyfriend Oisin has the hottest ass in town and yet things are not right. There is pretense between them. Not on Oisin’s side, no, the man loves him. It’s Conor who is not tackling straight. His mind is filled with thoughts of another. Sean, the love of his life, is single again and Conor can’t help but think what if.
What if he had the courage to end things with Oisin and take a punt with Sean. Self doubt fills Conor’s mind. Can he really do this to Oisin? Doesn’t he deserve better? Does Sean even feel anything for him? It’s time to decide what he wants, Oisin or Sean? Will he do the right thing or follow his heart?
Nothing is going to stop Conor, certainly not Captain and his sense of duty and putting the club first. Conor has loved Sean all his life, and now is the time to grow some balls, put it all on the line, and get what he wants. What he wants is the one man who has been there throughout his life. Sean. But does Sean love him as a lover, and not just a mate? Of course he does. He just needs to be shown how good they could be together!
Ok my apologies, but I could not finish this one. It started out with Confessions #1. Cheesy porn on the page with no characterization or plot. The dirty talk about “man sex” was repetitive and way over the top. But that was OK because it was what I expected even if I didn’t quite expect the fact that the sex was rather dirty (both in the unsafe and unhygienic senses). I knew that was the point.
Then Confessions #2 hit me with more unsafe, rough, over the top, porn on the page. Again there was no plot or characterization but this one pushed my limits with the unhygienic antics and really just grossed me out with terms such as “anal slime.” I knew I was in over my head, but I trudged on.
Finally, I hit Confessions #3 and when the MC told his “Doms” that he wanted the hot wax to stop and all they did was shove a dirty jock strap in his mouth, I was done. Again with the dirty in a gross way and the unsafe sex and now entered BDSM without safety. I just could not make myself continue forward.
Forced, fake romantic thread that kind of seemed like I wanted to know the ending or not, there was nothing that held my interest enough to overcome the gross factor and the unsafe practices thrown about without care. Maybe it’s because I am a woman, but this one was not for me.
I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with the eARC of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.
