He knows his place on the pitch, but in life, it's 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. Too bad love is never that simple.

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?

ARC received for an honest review

An Irishman and a Scotsman meet in a restaurant.

No, there is no punchline, I just want to be sitting between them listening to them talk. Sigh, those accents .

From the minute we meet him, you can't help but fall for the adorable Liam Donnelly.  He is unsure of so many things in his life.  Changes in his career, he is unsure of himself - who he is, what he wants.  He is stumbling his way through life at the moment.

Enter Lachlan and oh my! This is the start of Liam's bisexual awakening, and we are taken on his journey of attraction, lust, confusion and hopefully, love.

It is not all easy for Lachlan either.  He has his own crosses to bear when it comes to Liam, and I for one was glad that he does not let himself become a doormat.  He sticks up for what he wants ,no matter what.

Break Down is a beautiful, heartwarming story, and definitely my favourite in this series so far.
