BREAKING FREE #3 IS NOW AVAILABLE!!! FREE IN KU!
At a party on a rival college campus, I drunkenly stumble into a bathroom just as a tall, muscular man steps out of the shower…naked.
Instead of fleeing, I stay put and end up having the hottest bathroom hookup with someone whose name I don’t know. Because I’m still in the closet, I don’t talk about what happened that night, glad that it was with a guy who doesn’t live in the same town. But come Monday morning, the naked man from the bathroom strolls into the locker room and locks eyes with me.
His name is Dominic and he’s new to campus and trying to take my spot on the team, which makes me hate him. It’s too bad I loved everything he said and did to me the night we met, but I can’t let him get to me with his cocky smirks and filthy words. I have to focus on keeping my position on the team, but I can only think about the positions I want to be in with him.
He’s arrogant where I’m modest. I’m docile where he’s domineering. We’re complete opposites, so it could never work, but being with him makes me want to break free from the chains that have kept me in the closet, because he’s also the firm hand to my wavering confidence and I’m the moth drawn to his flame.

This was a really good addition to the series, but it can be perfectly read as a standalone.
The book starts with a bang, as closeted Trevor has a very hot secret encounter with a stranger, who ends up being his new teammate, who might or might not want Trev’s spot on the team.
I was a bit disappointed by Trevor’s reasons for being closeted. I get that he was afraid and that it isn’t easy to go through that, but his parents hadn’t been anything but supportive all his life, and his friends—especially his closer circle—were bound to be as well, so it made little sense to me. I felt sorry for Dominic and all he had to go through prior to getting to South Haven and it made his desire to lose himself in Trevor and forget for a bit understandable. Plus, it was obvious he was more into Trevor than he wanted to acknowledge. LOL. They were really hot together and I loved the banter and the way their relationship progressed.
And of course, seeing Ronan and Renzo and how good they are together was the icing on the cake! I just adore them and any glimpse we get of them is pure gold. Now I’m looking forward to Jayden’s story because I really liked him here.
Overall, I really enjoyed Breaking Free. It was sweet, hot, with some light D/s undertones and some angst. Very recommendable!
