Blog Tour, Review and Giveaway: Triple Play by Sloan Johnson

Triple Play by Sloan Johnson 
Publication Date: September 29, 2015 


Drew Jackson seemed to have it all. He has a family who loves and supports him, a tight circle of friends, and is a rising star with the Milwaukee Mavericks. Then, it all begins to unravel. Cam, the only man he’s ever loved, falls head over heels for Drew’s teammate. He makes a critical mistake in the playoffs that he’s not sure he’ll be able to recover from. And then, his world really crashes around him…

Eric Sapp may no longer play for the Mavericks, but he’s still one of the guys. No one could have imagined how much his life would change when he agreed to help his former teammates mourn the end of their run for the pennant. After stopping a brutal attack, Eric is forced to face the feelings that’ve been growing for his roommate, Drew. That’d be much easier if Drew wasn’t hell-bent on pushing everyone away as he recovers. Neither of them were counting on Bryce Shaw. He and Drew enjoyed the one night they spent together, but knew it was unlikely they’d be anything more since they lived in different parts of the country. After Bryce is relocated to help a failing LGBT homeless outreach, he wants to explore something more with the Mavericks’ short stop. As much as Eric wishes he could be the one to help his friend, he knows Bryce holds the key to Drew’s recovery. Will pushing the two back together be the biggest mistake of his life or will they all learn there is strength in numbers? 

Add to Goodreads

Triple Play by Sloan Johnson is the third book in the Homerun Series but can be read as a standalone novel. This book is not for the faint of heart an deals with some very serious issues, primarily gay athletes, gay attacks and an unexpected love. This book was a 3 star read for me.

Drew Jackson is a young major league baseball star whose season was cut short by an error that cost his team the playoffs. Struggling to come to terms with his role on the field, he is attacked on the way to meet his fellow teammates out at the bar for a few drinks. It is only when waking up in the hospital that he begins to realize that he has feelings for both his roommate Eric and the best friend of one of his teammates Bryce. While struggling for the first time with such intense feelings for two guys who couldn't be more different, Drew is also trying to come to terms with the attack and having to heal both mentally and physically. With everyone hovering around to make sure he is "ok" Drew begins to have an extremely short fuse.

When Bryce and Eric proposition Drew with the unexpected, he doesn't know how it will all play out, all he does know is that he wants to try it out, even if only one time. What ensues is pretty hot, steamy and completely sexy. When feelings begin to get involved, careers become at stake, and the future looms, the reader wonders what will come of these three charismatic guys.

Wild Pitch Curve Ball


Sloan Johnson is a big city girl trapped in a country girl’s life. While she longs for the hustle and bustle of New York City or Las Vegas, she hasn’t yet figured out how to sit on the deck with her morning coffee, watching the deer and wild turkeys in the fields while surrounded by concrete and glass. When she was three, her parents received their first call from the principal asking them to pick her up from school. Apparently, if you aren’t enrolled, you can’t attend classes, even in Kindergarten. The next week, she was in preschool and started plotting her first story soon after. Later in life, her parents needed to do something to help their socially awkward, uncoordinated child come out of her shell and figured there was no better place than a bar on Wednesday nights. It’s a good thing they did because this is where she found her love of reading and writing. Who needs socialization when you can sit alone in your bedroom with a good book? Now, Sloan is a tattooed mom with a mohawk and two kids. She’s been kicked out of the PTA in two school districts and is no longer asked to help with fundraisers because she’s been known to lose herself with a good book and forget she has somewhere to be.
