Neil Josten is the newest addition to the Palmetto State University Exy team. He’s short, he’s fast, he’s got a ton of potential—and he’s the runaway son of the murderous crime lord known as The Butcher.
Signing a contract with the PSU Foxes is the last thing a guy like Neil should do. The team is high profile and he doesn’t need sports crews broadcasting pictures of his face around the nation. His lies will hold up only so long under this kind of scrutiny and the truth will get him killed.
But Neil’s not the only one with secrets on the team. One of Neil’s new teammates is a friend from his old life, and Neil can’t walk away from him a second time. Neil has survived the last eight years by running. Maybe he’s finally found someone and something worth fighting for.
While this has been on my TBR for a long time, it’s the recent fanarts that actually pushed me to start it. Yes I got art baited and it was worth every second!!!
I didn’t think I would be this interested in a made up sport but I was so damn wrong! I devoured this book and I’m so gone for Andrew and Neil.
This is the first book in a trilogy is written completely from Neil’s POV. The sport, Exy, is a mix of lacrosse and ice hockey. The Foxhole Court is extremely character driven and you will fall for every member of the team. I’m invested in all these characters but especially Andrew. And Neil needs to be protected at all costs. I love found family and this book has that in spades. Love the team dynamics and can’t wait to read more.
It is an incredible slow burn and there’s no romance in this book. But the chemistry is scorching!🔥🔥🔥
“It sounded like a dream; it tasted like damnation.”
