Title: Break Down (Dublin Rugby #4)
Author: Rebecca Norinne
Cover Designer: Rebecca Norinne
Release Date: February 21, 2018


He knows his place on the pitch, but life is a whole other game.

All his life, Liam Donnelly looked and wondered. Could he? Would he? And then, finally, he did. But when he sampled a taste of that forbidden fruit, his whole world came crashing down, his position with Dublin Rugby right along with it. When the chance to ply his trade in Edinburgh comes along, Liam jumps at the offer, knowing it could be his best opportunity to start fresh and get back to the man he once was. But one look at Chef Lachlan MacLeod-his knowing, whisky-colored eyes, the abrasive scruff dotting his jaw, and the colorful ink lining his forearms-and Liam's wondering all over again. Can he? Will he? His heart says no, but his body says yes. 

He's conquered his own demons; can he help another man do the same?

Out and proud Chef Lachlan MacLeod has no problem with who he is, except he has a history of hooking up with bi-curious straight men. He's vowed never to go down that path again, but when Liam Donnelly shows up in his restaurant, his eyes filled with heat and secret longing, Lachlan can't help himself. He knows the closeted rugby player is a terrible idea, but the man calls to him in a way no one ever has before. What started as a safe way for Liam to explore his sexuality quickly morphs into something much deeper, and now Lachlan wants more. But can his heart reconcile what his head already knows-that loving the gorgeous, broken athlete might actually mean letting him go?

Megan's 5 kisses review
"Lets just say you still heard faggot jokes in the locker room sometimes.  Hell, I'd laughed at a few of them over the years myself.  But now?  Well, things had changed.  I'd changed"

When your unsure of who you are as a person; how can you ever truly live your best life?  This is Liam's and Lachlan's story.  

This one gets you in literally all the feels; you cannot help but fall in love with Liam and his vulnerability as he finds his way.  "Yes, I'm bi, that became my truth".   As Liam goes on his journey of self discovery, falling in love & coming out;  Lachlan is on his own journey as well.  While Liam is experiencing everything for the first time, Lachlan is forced to really look in the mirror and acknowledge what he will and won't accept for himself and in his relationships.  Can these two find their way to a happily ever after?  Or will their love stay in the closet?

Breakdown was everything and more;  all of Rebecca Norinne's words are so beautifully and tastefully written you will not be disappointed with this book.  This was my first MM Romance so I wasn't so sure of what to expect but I can honestly say that I truly loved this story; Liam & Lachlan's story.  It was amazing!  Rebecca Norinne popped this book genre cherry for me and I was not disappointed and you won't be either!  Do yourself a favor and read this book!  I promise you'll love it.
