Hot for Him #1
by J.T. Fox
WARNING: Contains two dirty-talking, hard-f*cking, no-apology-making alpha males. Read at your own risk.
Wanting him is the riskiest play of all…
Miami star quarterback Jordan Barr is the hottest man that halfback Eric “The Brick” Higgins has ever laid eyes on, and he’s wanted him in his bed for years.
When a chance encounter puts the two pro football players in the same town, the same TV studio, and the same locked room, the sparks don’t just fly, they burn. The chemistry between them is intense, immediate, and explosive and Eric isn’t about to miss his chance to have Jordan off the field. He’ll have Jordan naked in his bed—rumors of game fixing haunting both of their teams be damned.
Eric is one extraordinarily stunning man, and Jordan would love nothing more than to show Eric what it’s like to be taken by someone who knows exactly what he wants, in the bedroom and out. But Jordan has bills to pay and far too many responsibilities to throw caution to the wind.
He has to resist. But it’s getting hard….
Really, really hard.
Play Hard is the first installment in a three-part MM romance trilogy and ends in a cliffhanger.
The last time he’d laid eyes on Jordan was the summer after high school, when they were both working as junior coaches at football camp. It was the summer Eric had embraced his inner horndog, getting it on with two older local guys after practice. It wasn’t until the summer was over, however, that he’d learned that one of those same studs had blown Jordan behind the movie theater.
Eric had spent a solid month afterward cursing his gaydar for failing him.
He had wanted to get his hands all over Jordan’s tight body for years—ever since that summer after high school. Jordan had always been a stunning specimen, and he’d only gotten better with age.
Hell, why fuck around? Jordan Barr was the hottest man Eric had ever seen in the flesh.
If Jordan only knew how many times Eric had taken his dick in his hand and pictured Jordan. Pictured taking him, touching him, sliding his fist up and down Jordan’s thick cock until the other man came screaming his name. Eric wanted to feel Jordan fucking his hand until he lost control, then have Jordan return the favor, pumping Eric’s dick until he couldn’t think…well, straight.
Eric smirked. Straight clearly wasn’t an issue.
He imagined Jordan’s jaw would hit the floor if he knew he’d starred in so many of Eric’s fantasies he practically headlined the marquis. ’Course, if Jordan’s mouth were wide open, Eric knew exactly what he’d like to do with it—slide inside and get those full, sexy lips wrapped tight around his cock.
Get it together, Higgins.
Eric smiled as he shook Jordan’s hand, trying to play it cool, as if he hadn’t whacked off to imaginary Jordan a few hundred times. “We actually grew up together, but it’s been a long time.”
“It has.” Jordan nodded, his light blue eyes glittering with that same sharp intelligence Eric remembered. “I always respected your game, man.”
And I yours.
Boy had he.
As he and Jordan shook hands, electricity shot between them, another lightning strike, and this time, the thunder-down-under decided to join the storm.
Careful, Eric. You’re going on live TV in just a few minutes with this guy. You can’t have an erection the size of a goal post when you sit down on the couch.
Eric cleared his throat. “I was a fan of yours, too. Still am,” he said with a raised brow and a half-smile. Fan of your ass. Fan of your mouth. Fan of your cock—or I’m sure I will be once I get my lips around it.
Jesus Christ. His dirty mind was working overtime this afternoon.
“Thanks.” Jordan pulled his hand away a little too quickly. “Nice weather today, huh? I guess Tampa needed a long shower to cool off.”
Eric laughed easily, even as he wondered if that was Jordan’s way of calling him out. Did Jordan know that Eric had spied on him in the shower one afternoon when they’d both stayed late at camp?
Eric had been lucky enough to catch a glimpse of Jordan alone after practice—his stunning body glowing in a shaft of sunlight streaming through the high, dusty windows of the locker room. Every tight, toned, tanned, wet inch—including the increasingly erect inches between his legs—had been on stunning display, making Eric’s body respond with an epic woody of his own. The sight had taken his breath away and fed his fantasies for years.
“Well, I enjoy a good shower,” Eric said wryly, unable to resist testing his theory. “Don’t you?”
A flush crept up Jordan’s strong neck. “Yeah. Sure. Showers are good.”
Well, well, well…
★✩★✩★ 5 – Smokin Hott Alpha Badness – Stars ★✩★✩★
~this review MAY CONTAIN minor spoilers~
Jordan was as good as a world away. But maybe this was for the best. He wasn't ready for a real relationship again, and judging by the way his entire self -body and soul- responded to that man, it was doubtful Jordan was fling material. And that wasn't just disappointing. It was scary as hell.
What could possibly be hotter than a smokin hott football star, ripped alpha? TWO smokin hott alpha badasses hott for each other. I had this book done in less than a day – half because it wasn't really all that long (this was part one of three), but mostly because it was damn impossible to put down. These characters, getting in their heads, was smoking hott and funny as hell. The chemistry between the two was INSANE but it wasn't like an insta-lust thing, there was history between them, a back story we slowly get fed throughout the book. They have both had the hotts for each other for some time, but due to nerves, and just life in general, nothing has ever come of it... til now. They have both had their share of hurt in the past, for different reasons, which makes them leery of putting their hearts on the line again, and they both work in a profession where coming out and being free about who they are just isn't what they're ready to do. Giving in to temptation comes with some huge risks, for many different reasons, and they have to decide if it's worth it, though they both get their control tested more than once and giving in seems inevitable. But when they do... there were some damn hott scenes in this book. I know I'm using the word hott A LOT in this review but damn, I just can't help it. This wasn't a hearts and roses romance – these are TWO badasses who go after it rough and fierce, but that doesn't mean there are no feelings involved. They just express themselves in a more aggressive manner. And I loved it. Just be prepared for a cliffhanger. You will be left not only drooling for more, but pulling your hair thinking – Shit. THAT can't be good. I am dying to see what happens next and I am more than ready to spend some more time with these guys. Much, MUCH, more time ;)
“I'm just removing temptation from our path, okay? I'm not running away.”
But maybe he was. Just a little bit. Only because he hoped like hell that Jordan would come catch him.
