Review: Calling the Play (Birmingham Rebels #2) by Samantha Kane

Samantha Kane’s Birmingham Rebels series—perfect for fans of Shayla Black and Lexi Blake—proves that three’s never a crowd . . . at least not for the hard-bodied football all-stars who give teamwork a sexy twist.

Quarterback Tyler Oakes plays hard and parties even harder. That reckless lifestyle nearly derailed his career, and now the Birmingham Rebels are Ty’s last shot at football immortality. But staying out of trouble can take its toll—especially for a man with a taste for girls and guys. Because curvy, gorgeous Randi McInish is just the kind of trouble he’d like to get into.

A tough-as-nails undercover cop, Randi meets her match in Ty. After they get wrapped up together in a drug bust and a high-speed car chase, Randi’s eager to take the notorious bad boy for another wild ride. Turns out Ty already has something in mind. When he introduces her to the Rebels’ sexy new quarterback coach, things start heating up a little too fast for Randi.

Brian Mason coached Ty in college, and boy do they have history together. With Brian taking control on the field and in the bedroom, they were an unstoppable team. But Brian, blindsided by love, ran from his feelings for Ty. He won’t let Randi make the same mistake. Both men agree they need more than each other. They want a woman they can share. And when they make a pleasure play for Randi, all three are sure to score.

Samantha Kane has another winner with Calling The Play, book two in the Birmingham Rebels series! I loved book one, Broken Play, and was anxious to read this one. I was not disappointed!

Tyler Oakes has a colorful history of a party animal which always led to random hookups. His way of life is taking its toll and he wants to be a role model instead of a screw-up. Things change for Tyler when two things happen. Brian Mason is hired by the Rebels to coach Tyler and he meets Randi McInish.

Feeling lonely, Ty heads to a dive bar in search of a friend for the night. He meets Randi McInish, a cop, and then finds himself in the middle of a police sting operation. After the operation is over, they succumb to a night of no holds barred sex. Randi doesn’t do relationships. Being a cop, it comes with the territory. She tough, hard, and takes no crap from anyone. After meeting Ty, she starts to drop the façade. More nights ensue. She’s never had anyone want to care and protect her so she’s a bit out of sorts.

Brian Mason coached Ty in college and they had a relationship with each other and sharing women. Brian broke it off when feelings were expressed by Ty and it went beyond the relationship Brian was willing to give. Now he works for the Rebels and is enlisted to help Ty get his game back. Brian has always regretted how he hurt Ty. How will Ty feel having him around again? Could they possibly pick up where they left off? Then Brian meets Randi and he’s sure Randi and Ty are perfect for each other. Can they possibly entertain a third??

I loved these characters! They all have commitment issues. Their ideas of never being good enough are relatable. Samantha Kane does a superb job of melding these three and you can’t help but root for them and a HEA.

Calling the Play is part of a series, but it can easily be read as a standalone. The secondary characters make appearances, so I would definitely recommend starting with book one-Broken Play! The series is coming along nicely and I look forward to the next book!
