Description

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.

  • Steamy hot read

    This is a hot steamy read. Trying to let go of your good girl persona, Jane has a one-night stand with Sam and King. Awkwardness and doubt surround her when they meet again. Sam has his own doubts and works through them and his PTSD with help from King, Jane, and his therapist. King is a wonderful person, takes everything as it comes, is kind, and loyal. As they found their way together, I had a few tears, a few laughs, and an enjoyable read. This is the third in the series, and other than bumping into characters from the other books, it stands alone. I received a copy of this book through Netgalley, and it is a Book Obsessed Chick Star Review selection. This is my unsolicited review.

    If you have enjoyed the other two books in the Rebel series then this is a must read! I had a love hate relationship with the lead female however I really could relate to her conflict about who she perceived she should be and what she desired and wanted. King and Sam were amazing. Loved it!!!!
  • All I can say is WOW!

    Jacked Up is the third book in the Birmingham Rebels series but you don’t need to have read the others (but you really should) to enjoy this one; all of the books can be read as standalones. Samantha Kane has really turned up the heat in this story. The others were scorchers, too, but since I haven’t read them in a while this one really stands out as one of the hottest M/M/F stories I’ve read in quite some time. Sam Taylor is a veteran of two tours in Afghanistan and now a player for the Birmingham Rebels. He suffers from PTSD but teammate and best friend King Ulupoka helps to keep him centered. King Ulupoka wants to be more than Sam’s friend but he’s kept those feelings to himself. Sam hasn’t had sex with anyone since he was injured during his last deployment. King wants to help Sam get back in the game and find him the perfect woman. Jane Foster is a good girl who always follows the rules until she meets Sam and King. They have one wonderful encounter that fulfills all of her sexual fantasies and lets her be a “bad girl” for just one night. She’s not afraid to let go of her inhibitions because they will never see each other again – or will they? This is one of the hottest stories I’ve read in a while – and that’s something considering some of the stuff I read. If lots of hot, sweaty sex turns you off then this book isn’t for you. I’ve been a huge fan of Samantha Kane’s work since I found one of her historical M/M/F stories in my library’s digital catalogue. I promptly checked out as many of her books as I was allowed and didn’t stop reading until I finished them all. Her Brothers In Arms series will probably always be my favorite but the Birmingham Rebels series is a close second. Jacked Up has just the right amount of angst. Jane can’t reconcile herself to how she acts when she’s with King and Sam. She’s so afraid of what people will think when they find out she’s with Sam AND King. When their relationship is brought to the attention of the media she runs away. King and Sam want Jane but they also want her to be happy; giving her time to come to terms with their relationship is one of the hardest things that either of them have had to do. Don’t let the fact that the books are football related stories keep you from reading them. I’m not a football fan but that absolutely doesn’t matter. There’s almost no football jargon in the story – in fact the heroine, Jane, doesn’t know anything about football. You might not want to read Jacked Up if you’re out in public. The people around you might wonder why your ereader is smoking. A review copy was provided by the publisher via NetGalley but this did not influence my opinion or rating of the book.

    Good story! But I had a hard time relating with with the heroine, Jane in this story. It was like she was two different people. A good girl who was ashamed of her relationship with King and Sam, but a bad girl in bed with them. They met had sex and then went there separate ways only to see each other accidentally again and all of a sudden they were in love. It was hard for me to believe. And although the sex scenes were hot they were also a little overdone. I loved the information about PTSD and what veterans coming back from the war sometimes endure. I definitely could feel the connection between Sam And King, and loved both of these warm, sexy characters. I also enjoyed the secondary characters in this story. So if you like a story with plenty of hot sex you will like this book. It will definitely keep you warm on a cold winter night. I voluntarily requested a copy through NetGalley in exchange for a honest review.

    I was so thrilled to see another Birmingham Rebels story! I loved the first two books and couldn't wait to read this one… and I was not disappointed. I really loved this book! What an incredible threesome Sam, King, and Jane made! Ah Sam, with his PTSD, you just want to wrap him up in your arms and make everything better for him. He just made my favorite book boyfriends list. Then there's King, so in love with Sam but too afraid of losing his friendship to act on it. Now Jane, she's struggling with her identity of always being the good girl when what she really wants is to be very, very bad with Sam and King. These characters are so real and raw and honest. They draw you right into the story and make you believe. I found this book to be provocative and gripping and romantic and enchanting and impassioned and completely riveting. I would highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a sweet and sexy read. *I was given an advanced copy of this book via NetGalley and voluntarily chose to review. All opinions are my own

    Jane is a nurse on vacation in Orange Beach with her cousin. Her cousin believes she needs to get laid. King and Sam are football players for the Birmingham Rebels. Sam was in the Army, lost a friend in Afghanistan, and injured himself. He has PTSD and King takes him to Orange Beach to get laid. They meet Jane, have a one night stand, and the only way Sam is willing to have sex with Jane, is for King to watch and make sure he doesn't freak out. What none of them expect, is how hot it would be for King to watch. They go back to their lives but months later they see Jane in the ER where she works. She is embarrassed but decides to go out with them. They are at a party and someone records them getting down and dirty. She runs off and the boys try to apologize but she won't take their calls. Can they convince her to take a chance or will she stay "good girl Jane"? Some parts was hilarious. The sex was out of this world. Need a cold shower after this one. I wanted to smack Jane. She would have the best sex of her life with both guys and then freak out call herself a slut and then have sex with them again. MMF. MFM *RECEIVED FROM NETGALLEY AND VOLUNTARILY REVIEWED IT*

    4 1/2 STARS! A steamy-hot continuation of Samantha Kane’s Birmingham Rebels series is once again burning up the sheets! You MUST be okay with menage and M/M to enjoy this book … and if you are, you’re in for a treat! These two guys are the best of friends and then meeting that one certain lady, takes it to a whole new level! The characters are sweet and kind, they have issues just like us, and I think you’ll find yourself rooting for a happy ending for them just like I was. The PTSD that Linebacker Sam Taylor suffers from after returning from Afghanistan has him living his life in a really stunted way. He overthinks things and worries constantly about what might set him off, and it’s driving his best friend crazy! Defensive lineman King Ulupoka just wants to see Sam be able to relax and enjoy life a little bit. He’s been living life like a monk ever since he came home, and King has decided it’s time he helps him change that! ER nurse Jane Foster has always been the good girl, and so when she meets these two hunks and gets the opportunity to live life on the bad side for one night, she’s super tempted! Steamy sex with a gorgeous football player? YES PLEASE! So what if his friend is going to stay and watch … she’s still game! When a chance encounter has her crossing their path again a few months later, they decide they can’t let a gift like that slide by without jumping on it. Neither of them have been able to get her or that night out of their mind … and neither has she! When they all decide to try at a relationship … together … will they be able to live with the consequences when it goes public?

    This is book # 3, in the Birmingham Rebels series. This book can be read as a standalone novel. For reader enjoyment and understanding, I recommend reading the series in order. King wants to help Sam. They meet Jane at a bar where she is being bothered by a neanderthal. Sam is instantly attracted to her and it seems mutual. Jane is not sure she wants to proceed. She is afraid to have more than one night with these amazing men. She worries about what others will think. What will the future hold? Such a sizzling hot book! These three characters know how to keep the heat turned up. This series continues to surprise and delight. ***This ARC copy was given by Netgalley and its publishers, in exchange for an honest review only.
