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.
We’ve come to the final book in the Hot for Him Series, and it did not disappoint! That last cliffhanger left me wanting to know who would hurt Eric. Jordan is guilt-ridden. The man that he loves, is really hurt and may not ever play football again. Jordan’s guilt also stems from the fact, they he didn’t give Eric a chance to explain himself. Jordan knows deep in his heart, that Eric wouldn’t set him up, and he needs to get to the bottom of not only the fixing scandal but who’s trying to blackmail him. Jordan goes to an unlikely ally, an ex-boyfriend for help.
When you find out who’s behind the blackmail, you may be in shock, I know I was. It’s really sad what people will do for money. Eric does recover and his and Jordan’s feelings for each other is put to the table. Can Jordan ever come out of the closet and be true to himself? Will the NFL finally acknowledge that two of their most popular players are gay and play on opposite teams? Well you will have to read the final the book to get your answers.
You must read all three novellas to get the full picture of the wonderful love story. I may have mentioned that this was my first time reading a J.T. Fox series and I am sure it will not be the last. He writes from the heart and if you enjoy a good m/m book and/or series, I would recommend reading the Hot for Him Series. All three novellas are quick reads and will keep you wanting more.

Trusting him is the biggest play he’ll ever make…
Jordan Barr is in deep. He can’t get Eric off his mind, and he’s consumed with wanting the sinfully sexy man. But there’s more at stake now than the pro quarterback ever bargained for. It’s not just his or Eric’s heart or career on the line anymore.
Lives are at stake and their enemies are playing dirty.
Both men need to keep their eyes open for a potentially career-ending blitz. But that’s increasingly tough when all Jordan wants to do is screw Eric senseless.
That kind of screwing sounds damn fine to Eric Higgins. He’s never wanted anyone the way he wants Jordan, but Eric doesn’t know who he can trust anymore.
As their enemies close in and time grows short, he’ll have to decide if he’s ready to make the biggest play of all and let Jordan into his heart.
“I can’t wait to see you again,” Eric said, his breath coming fast as he tugged at the buttons at Jordan’s crotch. “I can’t wait to get my fist around you, my lips on you.”
Each button he popped was an orchestrated symphony of torture, driving Jordan’s desire higher. By the time Eric tugged his jeans down his legs to pool around his knees, he was ready to explode. His cock leapt forward, bobbing in the cool air that felt even cooler compared to his burning hot skin. God, he was so hard his cock was a deep red, with veins standing out along the ridge at the center of his length.
“Commando?” Eric cursed beneath his breath, his eyes glued to Jordan’s shaft like it was the Holy Grail and he’d been hunting the thing a damn long time. “Not what I expected from a good guy like you.”
“I don’t know where you got the idea I’m so good,” Jordan said, fisting his hand in the hair at the base of Eric’s neck, not missing the flash of lust the firm grip sent flashing across Eric’s face. “Just because I try to resist temptation doesn’t mean I don’t know what to do when I give in.”
Eric’s eyes glittered as his tongue slipped out to wet his lips. “Is that so?”
“It is,” Jordan said, his voice a low rumble. “And before we’re done I’m going to fuck your mouth like I own it. But first I want you naked.”
Eric’s gaze darkened. “Me first. I started something and I mean to finish it,” he said as he moved his lips up Jordan’s torso, to his left nipple. His tongue teased and swirled across Jordan’s tight flesh before Eric’s lips parted and his teeth bit down hard, sending darts of heat straight to Jordan’s already raging hard-on, making him groan.
Eric took his time with one nipple and then the other, biting and sucking while his hands smoothed up and down the inside of Jordan’s thighs. Sparks ignited in Jordan’s blood, turning hotter as Eric teased higher and higher until finally he cupped Jordan’s swollen, aching balls in one big hand.
Ah hell. Jordan cursed. It felt so damn good to be touched. “Play with them,” Jordan commanded, and Eric did as told, caressing and tugging Jordan’s balls with his strong hands.
“Now, give my dick some motherfucking attention,” he said.
Eric flashed a cocky grin, making it clear he liked taking orders. He shifted his attention, bringing his mouth to hover inches away from Jordan’s cock and licking it—just once—from base to leaking tip.
One touch, and a deep desire rippled through Jordan’s body. Yes, this man’s tongue was going to deliver unholy pleasure.
Jordan gritted his teeth. “Take it, Eric. Suck me. Suck me deep.”
“You have no idea how long I’ve wanted you to say that. How fucking long I’ve waited to taste you,”
