Playing at Home: A M/M manny romance (Sporting Secrets Book 2) Kindle Edition
Jacob Browne comes from rugby royalty but no matter how hard he tries, he’ll never be the same heroic idol his father was on the rugby field. And now he’s failed off the field with the breakdown of his relationship to New Zealand’s favorite ‘It Girl’ Matilda Neilson. When Matilda hires a male nanny, it feels like the ultimate kick in the guts that another guy gets to spend more time with his kids than he does.
Austin’s freshly back from London and his new job looks great. Matilda is determined to be his new BFF and the kids are awesome, although he gets the feeling that his other boss, the glowering rugby player, isn’t that excited by him. But that’s okay, he’ll win him over. What he won’t do is crush on his gorgeous straight boss, because that’s the pathway to a whole lot of hurt, as he knows from the scorch marks still burned into his heart. Unfortunately, that resolution doesn’t allow for when he gets to know the real Jacob. From princess parties, Lego wars, nights spent talking about everything and anything, Austin’s falling for him hard. And when Jacob is revealed to be not as straight as previously assumed, all bets are off.
In sports, playing at home is supposed to be an advantage. But sometimes when things get too scorching, it can threaten to burn the whole house down.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
However, this is obviously not written for gay male audiences. I had to stop at about 40% because it was just too cringeworthy. Too many cutsie, sickeningly sweet moments that don’t ring true for most gay men. Like: “his smile was like the first daffodil opening in the springtime”. Or: “To watch the fountain of adorableness that was Jacob interacting with his daughters.” Or: “As if I could absorb some of his strength…his Jacobness…to help me through this.” Who talks like that?
It’s a romance, which I love, but I prefer some realism, not sappy tropes.
Not only great characters and a great story -- but some honest to goodness rugby!
I really truly loved these guys! Austin, especially his interaction with the girls, is just the sweetest guy -- and Jacob....wow, what a good man with a journey he needed to make sense of.
Plenty of heat 😜😜😜 Looking forward to more from Jax!
I raced through this in a day and will be waiting for the next in the series.
Awesome series and I can't wait to get my hands on the next book.
Highly recommend this.

Told from dual perspective, the sizzling attraction growing between Jacob and Austin can't be ignored, and soon they find themselves unable to resist each other. Jacob has a sensitive heart underneath his macho guy persona, while Austin is a quirky guy on a mission to recover from the disaster that was his love life.
Both characters were likeable and had a vulnerable side that really pulled me in. For fans who have read the previous book in the series it was great to catch up with the previous characters, and meet those who'll likely be in future books. 4 and a half stars.
