When we first meet Sander and learn is backstory my heart was breaking for him and I just wanted him to find someone to love and support him. So when he meets Mat and they hit it off was thrilled even though we quickly learn that Mat is in a committed relationship with Noah. As the three men become friends the relationship develops into more.
This story gives the very hot and dirty sex that you'd expect from an m/m/m novel and I can say it made for stimulating reading. But the relationship between the three men his the highlight for me. I loved seeing these men support each other. Even when things weren't going right for the guys I was comforted by their relationship and knowing they'd be there to take care of each other.
I also loved the antagonistic relationship Sander has with coach Vic Kalinski and how the Cayuga Cougars support Sander when he needs it.
Even through parts of Overtime deal with some difficult issues the warmth and strength of the relationship between our trio shines through and I just loved it.
