Jacked Up by Samantha Kane
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
The secret about the Birmingham Rebels is out: With a girl in the middle, two mouth-watering football studs are better than one.
Linebacker Sam Taylor feels like a ticking time bomb. He left the army with emotional wounds as fresh as the scars on his back. Sam’s been living like a monk, but his best friend, defensive lineman King Ulupoka, wants to get him laid. Easy for him to say. The larger-than-life Samoan is a hard-bodied, tribal-tattooed fantasy. Sam agrees, under one condition: King stays to watch.
ER nurse Jane Foster is done being a good girl, and nothing says wild like picking up two of football’s sexiest players and bringing them back to your hotel room. Trouble is, she can’t decide which one she wants more. Sam is hot, sweet, and vulnerable. Jane’s more than willing to ride him into oblivion. But King’s intense gaze from across the room promises that the best is yet to come.
Sure, King has had his choice of girls and guys in the past. That doesn’t mean he’ll jeopardize his relationship with Sam over a case of locker-room lust—until a naughty nurse pushes them both out of their comfort zones. Seeing Jane and Sam together turns King on more than he ever imagined. If they’re game, he’s ready to tackle a three-way play.
Apparently, Loveswept has changed over the years and it now needs to be labeled Erotica...I don't know what to say about this book except if you like 2 on 1, get it. If you don't...don't read this book - You've been warned people!! There should be a warning on this book that puts it in the M/M category and M/M/F Category. Some people will love that, I for one am not one of those people. Anyone who reads me or knows me, knows I like my romance subtle and my sex non-explicitly written. This couldn't get more explicit if you watched some porn on the internet and googled it the way I typed it above.
I'm a writer that types pretty much how she speaks, which means that if you don't like my reviews then you probably won't like me cause I don't blow smoke up your tail just to tell you something you want to hear. I'm sure this book will get lots of reviews saying how awesome it is and that's super great. Here's why that'll happen: The author did something that even I, as the reviewer didn't like but I had to say "oh, say again?" I liked the characters. I really liked Sam, King and Jane. Which is why I gave her 4 stars. I skimmed over dang near all the sex scenes and there were A LOT!! So many that they made my eyes water with steam. However, the author was onto something that I think a bunch of other authors should start taking for granted more often - she used her characters and made them into real people for her audience to relate to. Whether you are Army, Navy, Marines, Nurses, Football players, Straight, gay, or anything in-between she made you feel what her characters were going through. She researched PTSD and brought that home to me as a reviewer and reader. Although, at times I didn't like some parts of the book I wanted to see what happened with the characters. That was the saving grace and made it so that it wasn't a DNF for me. I still believe it needs to contain warnings for people because this may not be their cup of tea. I can't see a 80 year-old grandma sitting there listening to it on Audible going "get it boy!!" I definitely wouldn't recommend it to my 16 year-old cousin to read because I wouldn't educate her on any of what's contained in the pages even if she already knows (I'm praying that she doesn't and if she does, I'll be over here in denial.) Less is more people. Less is sometimes more.
I was given a copy of this ARC from the publisher on Netgalley for a honest review. All of the above comments are my express opinions and no one else's.
