Beach volleyball player Sam Waterson knows he made a mistake--a really big one--three years ago when paparazzi interrupted his jubilant celebration with sexy Carlos Delacruz, the love of Sam's life, and with their ménage partner Drew Eversly...and Sam blamed the public exposure on the wrong man. But fate has given him a second chance to prove his prowess on the sun-baked beach volleyball court and at loving the sensual man who has unknowingly held his heart. Can he--or Carlos or Drew--win a spot on the team? But even beyond sweating it out on the court and regaining the spot they had to forfeit three years ago, can Sam win back Carlos's heart? Sam needs to show Carlos that he can spike and score where it counts...between the sheets.

Sam Waterson can’t quite get Carlos Delacruz or Andrew Eversly out of his system. After a particularly good day of volleyball trials the three men had partied on the sand, only to be interrupted by the tabloids. Thrown out of the trials, his family upset by all the media coverage, Sam went back to Montana, hoping to forget California and the two men he wanted more than anything. Now offered a second chance three years later, Sam is hoping not only to make the team, but reignite things between himself, Carlos and Drew. While Carlos and Drew are more than happy to pick up where they left off sexually, trusting Sam with their hearts and emotions comes a lot slower. So Sam determined to try and prove himself to the men, not willing to let them slip through his fingers a second time.

This is a steamy, sporty short story. The action is all-male, with a good balance between sexy M/M/M action and the politics and competitive nature of high-level sport. I liked how the villain was all bad –completely irredeemable. I also really enjoyed how the guys didn’t just fall over each other and forget their past. It added depth to the story and made it far more than just a delicious romp between team-mates. The sex scenes were well written and highly sensual. This is an excellent quick read for a sporty weekend.
