Book 3, Birmingham Rebels - Birmingham Rebels
This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
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. <smile> 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.
