Blurb

Sander March is one season away from the pros, or so everyone tells him.

If only Sander had as much faith in his ability as the Cougar coaching staff does. Outwardly, he’s cocksure, borderline bitter, and slightly sarcastic. All that strut and sass hides a wounded soul though. Working to hide a brutal past filled with humiliation, abuse, and a family member who still haunts him, Sander has never found the kind of comfort and understanding he so desperately needs. Until he meets Mateo Castillo, a minor league baseball player for the nearby Elmira Egrets. Mateo and Sander click instantly, and a budding friendship develops between the two athletes.

Mateo then introduces Sander to his boyfriend, Noah Coombs, an aspiring manga comic creator. The three men find themselves bonding strongly, and that slowly gives way to sexual attraction. Eventually, Mateo and Noah invite Sander into their relationship. The path to happiness isn’t going to be easy for Sander as he faces criticism from his friends, teammates, and the press for his choices. The brash young star can handle all that, it’s when his abuser shows up in Cayuga that Sander fears not only for his own safety, but for the lives of the two men he has grown to love. Will Sander’s past tear him away from Mateo and Noah, or will he be able to leave the darkness behind?

Warning – This story has disturbing subject matter.

REVIEW

After being raised by his older sister and having to endure the beatings by his brother in law, Sander is trying to find out where he belongs.  He is traded mid season to the Cougars, but hasn't made any friends. 

Sander makes his first Friend Mateo, baseball player,  at a sports awards Banquet. Mateo introduces Sander to his boyfriend Noah, Manga artist,  and that's all she wrote. Soon after all 3 are spending most of their time together at Mateo and Noah's place. Sparks fly with attraction between the 3, could they really make it work? Be in poly relationship? Be out int he open?
 All while in the back of Sanders head he's worrying about whether or not that same brother in law who used to beat on him as a kid will come after him as an adult.

My heart hurt for Sander, so I am glad he didn't just get the love from one, but two people, I couldn't have asked for anything better for him. I thought VL did a pretty cohesive job with this tripod, it's not an easy feat to write about an actual poly relationship.


V.L. Locey loves worn jeans, yoga, belly laughs, Dr. Who, Torchwood, walking, reading and writing lusty tales, Greek mythology, the New York Rangers, comic books, and coffee. (Not necessarily in that order.) She shares her life with her husband, her daughter, one dog, two cats, two Jersey steers and a flock of assorted domestic fowl.

When not writing lusty tales, she can be found enjoying her day with her menagerie in the rolling hills of Pennsylvania with a cup of fresh java in hand.
