Seriously mediocre. ( )

DNF before I break something

"-I glanced at the store entrance as a hulking man walked in.
Holy shit...
My brain-short circuited. My vagina was instantly awake and at full attention."

The heroine is too stupid for words.

She's so contradicting and vapid...I can't.

Not even wasting my words on this.

Just no. " ( )

So a NFL hopeful, ex-marine and sports newscaster hopeful walk into a bar...

Sound like a interesting dirty joke set up (maybe) but it is actually the set up for a beautiful prompt and picture well executed. A college threesome in a established relationship, some angst/ bullying thrown in, sensual tension and yummy man sex makes Playing for Keeps".

I liked the story. (at times it was wordy but then again you can't question how each main character felt)

I loved the couple...trio...throuple? - Brock, AJ and Trent were believable in their love.

I would rate this story somewhere closer in the 3.5 range but thinking about the triad's last sex scene puts a smile on my face. I'll round up!

All in all,
