Publisher's Summary

Falling for a teammate who also happens to be your brother's best friend? Total rookie move.

McRae: I’ve had a crush on my brother’s best friend since the moment I laid eyes on him four years ago.

Warner Ramsey is 225 pounds of pure hotness, a media darling, and one of the best NFL quarterbacks in the league.

Hell, he’s the reason I figured out I’m solidly bi.

It was easy to keep my crush under control when I was in college. Now, we play for the same team, and every time he talks smack, I want to shut him up. With my mouth.

But I’ve got other things I should be focusing on, like dominating my rookie year with the Denver Rush and finally stepping out of my brother’s shadow.

Besides, Ramsey’s straight.

Ramsey: I’ve never tapped into my bisexuality—never told anyone except my best friend that I’m bi. All I want is to play football and not draw media attention like my dad, who got ousted from the league.

Garrett McRae is my biggest temptation. He’s gotten under my skin for years.

I’m supposed to be looking out for him, not thinking about getting him naked.

And definitely not the kiss we shared.

That I somehow instigated.

It was stupid, and not like me, but God, it was hot.

We’re teammates, with million-dollar contracts on the line. And yet…is a little experimentation really so bad

Rookie Move is a low-angst, high-heat sports romance in the Playing for Keeps series.

Awesome as always!

Football is the game and loving a teammate is dangerous. This was a light banter between two great characters. The Thanksgiving scene was hilarious! You don’t want to miss this! Lots of great characters.

So Good!

Revisited on audio and loved it just as much as when I read it. Nick J Russo was fantastic!

Loved, loved, loved this! Had so many of my favorite things wrapped into one fabulous book! Best Friend's younger brother, football, teammates, first times, great dialogue, spot-on banter, scorching heat, and all the swoon! Ramsey and Garrett were just perfect together! I adored both characters, I absolutely loved their interactions with each other, and I found their communication and directness refreshing, both in and out of the bedroom. There wasn't any unnecessary relationship drama, and there were great, supportive family and friends. Just a low-angst, feel good sports romance that made me smile.

Loved!

Super cute book! A perfect amount of spice, character development, good story, angst (just a bit!) and the slow burn at the beginning was delicious! I was nervous that the whole coming out thing/peoples negative reactions would be a bigger part of the story than I preferred, which is always a bummer but it was done just right! Can’t wait for more stories by these two!

Baby G and Ramsey 💚💙

I enjoyed this story so much. A bff younger brother is too much of a temptation, more so when said brother tells him he is super hot. Yeah, Ramsey had no escape from that flirty teammate. I liked that Ramsey while been bi had no experience with men, and G has all the moves. Awesome romance with great family moments as well as crappy ones. The narration was also quite good.

Another perfect sports romance!

NFL Quarterback for the Denver Rush, Warner Ramsey has always kept his bisexuality under wraps. When his best friend’s cocky, out-and-proud little brother, Garrett McRae, earns a place on the team, Warner is tempted to finally act on his feelings. Garrett has had a crush on Warner for years but he’s always thought that Warner was straight. It’s one thing to be an out NFL player, it’s quite another to start a relationship with a teammate. This was hugely enjoyable, I liked Warner and Garrett and Garrett’s brother, Houston, and the fun banter between them. No spoilers but the angst and drama were low level and there was a satisfying amount of sports play and team interaction. Nick J Russo gave his usual great audio performance, matching the light tone well.

Didn't dig this…

Rookie Move is book one in the Play for Keeps series.

What I love is a good MM sports romance with low angst. Throw in a brothers best friend and a sexual exploration trope and I'm totally here for that. But while this book has all those things it truly didn't do anything for me. It absolutely missed the mark.
There is nothing wrong with the story. But I just didn't mesh well with it. There was something missing, like the spark was lacking.

I will say Nick J Russo is an absolutely fantastic narrator. I feel if I had read this on the kindle I may not have finished it. He carried the story for me.
