Spiral is a bonus story in the Love & Rugby series.
During a rugby practice, Easton Santiago is tackled by the revelation that he and his teammate are dating the same man. Confronting his boyfriend’s deception also forces him to face the feelings he’s refused to acknowledge for his teammate, Kade.
Kade March is furious to learn that the man he’s been dating for three weeks has been using him to cheat on Easton, one of Kade’s favorite people. Being hurt is one thing, but someone hurting Easton is something Kade won’t allow. He cares too much, too deeply, and can’t deny it any longer.
Mutually breaking up with their cheating ex bonds them and sets them free to explore the allure of each other. But Easton’s been burned one time too many, and Kade’s self-doubts run deep. One touch, one admission, one kiss, sets off a chain reaction neither of them expected, and risks their friendship, their team, and how much they depend on each other.
