Review: First Season by RJ Scott & VL Locey

First Season
(Harrisburg Railers #2)
by R.J. Scott, V.L. Locey
Release Date: September 27, 2017
Genre: M/M Romance

Layton Foxx works hard for what he's achieved. The condo, the career, the chance to make his mark...it's all down to the sacrifices he's made. With tragedy in his past, he doesn’t want or need love. Then he meets Adler Lockhart, the extroverted, sexy winger for the Harrisburg Railers, and abruptly he can’t avoid love even if he wanted to.

Adler Lockhart has had everything handed to him his whole life. Cars, villas, cash, college tuition at the finest Ivy League schools. The only thing he doesn’t have is parents who care, or the love of a good man. Then Layton walks into his privileged life and shows him what real love can be like.

Layton wants success, Adler wants a family...how can love make both these things possible?

This is really good and give me all the feels. We are back with the Railers and the team is dealing with Ten and Jared wanting to come out. In come Layton, the social media/crisis manager, a guy with a closet full of skeletons. Layton didn't like jocks at all and as the story progress, we finally found out where his wariness came from and it was a heartbreaking to learn about it.

Adler is the new player being traded to Railers and he was not much of an important figure in the last book, thus I think this work pretty well as standalone. At first glance, Adler seems like a typical jock with a foul mouth and a total jerk. Hence, Layton didn't like him at all. But in Adler's case, he seems delusion about his behavior. Okay, he did know he acted like an idiot in front of the hot guy, but he can't control himself. I totally digging the whole 'enemies to lovers' vibe we have here with Layton totally not giving any chance to Adler.

Adler was definitely my favorite part of the story. Although he didn't came from a great family and he had lousy parents, but deep down he still good the biggest heart. He is relentless in pursuing Layton, despite all the brush off. Adler had all the best intention to win him over, although most of his tactics doesn't really work, but I'm definitely having a good laugh at his effort. Or maybe it did work because Layton finally gave in after a long fight. 

As hinted, Layton didn't have the best experience with men especially a jock like Adler, but with time and commitment, Adler proves him wrong and I'm just swoon over with the way Adler show his love to Layton.
