Rules of Possession: Book Two
A year ago, Kelly Cannon couldn’t imagine he’d end up with his formerly straight best friend. It’s hard to believe he can finally kiss Blue anytime he wants… as long as they’re in private. And there’s the rub. Despite Kelly’s promise to wait until Blue is ready to come out, he’s tired of sneaking around. The cracks in their relationship are starting to show, and there might not be enough spackle in the world to fix them.
Britton “Blue” Montgomery may not be the physics brainiac his boyfriend is, but he’s not stupid. He knows Kelly isn’t completely happy, but he’s not ready to be the poster boy for bisexuals and gays in the NFL. He just wants to keep his head down, play the game he loves, and go home to the man he adores. Is that too much to ask?
With the truth slowly coming to the surface, Blue must make a choice. If it means losing Kelly, there’s no decision to make. He has to find enough courage to face the music and hope they’ll survive the fallout.
Man. Happily-ever-afters may not be just for Disney princesses, but they sure are a lot of work.

This book was everything! I love the relationship between Blue and Kelly, it ended perfectly!
4.5 stars- A Deeper Blue is the second book in the Rules of Possession series which follows the story of lifelong best friends turned lovers, Blue and Kelly. As this is really a continuation of the first book, I wouldn’t consider it a standalone. While I thoroughly enjoyed the first book in the series, I did find it a little frustrating to not get as much solid commitment and time with the couple as I wanted. A Deeper Blue rectified that, offering up that perfect ending to a really sweet romance that brimmed with chemistry, clever wit, and an intense connection that couldn’t be dampened. Each time I read a book by this author, I’m struck at how easy the flow is. The dialogue and narrative complement each other well and really highlight the characters’ individual personalities, making them come alive in a way that draws me in and keeps me invested throughout the book. A Deeper Blue certainly is no exception. The style was easy but detailed and the pace measured, offering a nice balance of sweet romance and believable conflicts as Kelly and Blue navigated having a significant, but secretive, relationship. Though some of this angst was a carryover from the first book, it felt more honest and less drug out than in Blueprint, and I didn’t find myself frustrated this time around. In fact, some of the resolutions and plot points surprised me by taking an unexpected path and reaffirming just how good this couple was together. There was also a considerable increase in the heat level in the second book, meaning both the emotional and physical chemistry between Blue and Kelly was fantastic. And of course, I cannot ignore the banter and humor that never failed to bring a smile to my face. A Deeper Blue proved to be an excellent conclusion for this friends-to-lovers romance, and one I’d happily recommend. *Reviewed for Alpha Book Club*
