Professional basketball player Bri Early needs a physical therapist after an injury, and he’s heard that Obie is the best. Bri takes an immediate liking to the out-and-proud man with the magic touch, and even though Bri isn’t openly gay himself, he’d never let anything stand in the way of something he wants. Obie can’t deny that the sexy athlete presses all his buttons, but he’s a professional and has no intention of getting involved with a client. While they’re working together, it’s hands off, no matter how great the temptation. But being a pro athlete isn’t easy. Bri has enemies, and one of them is making his life hell. When his house is set ablaze, Bri can no longer pretend the threatening messages he’s receiving are jokes. He needs a safe place to stay, and Obie can’t turn his back. But the two of them in the same house is a recipe for combustion that could burn them both….
I was so happy reading this book and considering the fact that one character is being stalked...that’s saying something. I just found so much joy in these characters and I loved getting to know them.
Bri Early is a professional basketball player with an injury and in need a great physical therapist. He finds the best in Obie and is also immediately intrigued by the man. Due to his career, Bri is not openly gay to most of the world and Obie is delightfully open. These two men seem so very different and yet, together they just work. They are fun and hardworking and they love food.
Their mutual love of food is shown throughout the book and I loved each time they shared a meal together. It sounds silly, but for all that this is a story with an NBA star in it, they are just regular guys. Bri is dealing with threats from an increasingly dangerous source and Obie is by his side through it all. This book is rounded out by a wonderful cast of side characters that bring a lot of laughs and a lot of insight. Obie and Bri definitely are the stars though and that’s just perfect because they steal the show.
I think Rebound is my new favorite book from Andrew Grey, is really is special. I loved all of the relationships so much, the friendships and familial bonds are fabulous. A great book to curl up with when you need some happy.
