Rule One: No Drama!
Fergus Taylor is damaged goods. Reeling from a brutal breakup, he’s determined to captain his LGBT soccer team out of scandal and into a winning season. For that, he needs strict rules and careful plans. He does NOT need a brash, muscle-bound lad messing with his head and setting his body afire.
John Burns has a rule of his own: Don’t get attached. Boyfriends are for guys with nothing to hide. Nobody—not his university mates, not the men he beds—knows his family’s shame. Now his double life is starting to unravel, thanks to a certain Highlander whose storm-riddled eyes turn John inside out, who wears a kilt like he was born in it.
Fergus is the first man John wants to share his secret with—but he’s the last man who could handle it. John knows the truth would shatter Fergus’s still-fragile heart. But how can he live a lie when he’s falling in love?
Note: The Glasgow Lads series contains dirty talk with a Scottish accent, naughty bits of a gay nature, and characters who call soccer “football.”

This was an odd book for me because I loved the MC's on the whole but I really had a soft spot for John. Kudos to Avery Cockburn for writing so smoothly I was able to follow the Scottish colloquialisms without a hitch and I really got into the sports scenes. My only complaint was the religious part ...
I really really liked this story!

4.25 starsTwo stories in and Avery Cockburn has successfully made this genre exciting again (for me at least). Hands down one of my favorite new-to-me authors and series this year. I'm off to read the next novel and short story. Review for this one have to be posted later. But let's just say that I ...
First, my gripes: 1) Obviously, I'm not Scottish or Irish, so I'm lacking cultural context. Still, it was endlessly distracting seeing these white people accusing each other of being racists because they hate each other's religion. That's not racism, people. Just plain ole bigotry. Catholics aren'...
