Volley Balls (Balls to the Wall #1) by Tara Lain 4*
BLURB:2nd Edition A Balls to the Wall Romance A "pumped up" version of the Volley Balls story, twice as long as the original.
A double dose of alpha male might be better than one.
Despite just getting out of an abusive relationship with an asshole alpha, David Underwood’s wandering glance lands on two hot members of the Australian volleyball team on Laguna Beach and gets him harassed again. Still, when the delicious Gareth Marshall proves his interest by coming out to his team, David succumbs to his attraction. But Gareth’s volleyball partner, Edge, who’s equally hot, makes the lovers’ lives miserable.
For Gareth, a lifetime of hiding his orientation—and his attraction—from his best friend, Edge, as well as everyone else around him, adds up to hurt and frustration. David’s the first man to ever compete with Edge for Gareth’s passion. But Edge has secrets of his own, and David’s ex-lover will never be happy without David under his fist. With everything stacked against him, can a gay Laguna man find happiness with an alpha male–or two?
My Review: So I reread this book in it's expanded version and, I can honestly say, I liked it so much more for the extra that Tara added. There was so much more of everything to enjoy that I couldn't exactly say what was new and what was original but the whole book just flowed so well. I felt that Edge seemed a bit better written and the relationship made better sense too. Whatever Tara did she must have used magic to achieve it, however she managed it, I thank her for a great story made better.
