He knows his place on the pitch, but in life, it's a whole other game. All his life, Liam Donnelly looked and wondered. Could he? Would he? And then, finally, he did. But when he sampled a taste of that forbidden fruit, his whole world came crashing down, his position with Dublin Rugby right along with it. When the chance to ply his trade in Edinburgh comes along, Liam jumps at the offer, knowing it could be his best opportunity to start fresh and get back to the man he once was. But one look at Chef Lachlan MacLeod-his knowing, whisky-colored eyes, the abrasive scruff dotting his jaw, and the colorful ink lining his forearms-and Liam's wondering all over again. Can he? Will he? His heart says no, but his body says yes. Too bad he doesn't know which one to listen to. He's conquered his own demons; can he help another man do the same? Out and proud Chef Lachlan MacLeod has no problem with who he is, except he has a history of hooking up with bi-curious straight men. He's vowed never to go down that path again, but when Liam Donnelly shows up in his restaurant, his eyes filled with heat and secret longing, Lachlan can't help himself. He knows the closeted rugby player is a terrible idea, but the man calls to him in a way no one ever has before. What started as a safe way for Liam to explore his sexuality quickly morphs into something much deeper, and now Lachlan wants more. But can his heart reconcile what his head already knows-that loving the gorgeous, broken athlete might actually mean letting him go?
“But then I got older and wiser, and I decided the only opinions I valued were from those I respected. And I don’t respect big men who use small, ugly words to make themselves feel better about who they are underneath all that hate.”
Holy amazing story Batman!
This is the first story by this author that I have read. I’m a automatic one clicker for her now. WOW
I got an email asking if I would review and promote this one and after reading the blurb, I jumped at the chance. This was addicting! I had a long day at work and this was the perfect thing to keep me entertained. I read the entire thing at work. I’m so glad it was a slow day because I couldn’t put it down!
There is nothing about these two that wasn’t meant to be. There is no way you can deny they were made for each other and this was all fate. This is one of those stories where you feel everything and one where I had to pause and take a moment to catch my breath. It was captivating. I am going to be catching up on the rest of the series because I can not believe I haven’t read her before.
Break Down is emotional, unique, and completely flawless. If you are a fan of M/M stories then this should be at the top of your “Do Not Miss” list!!
