Wild Pitch by Sloan Johnson
Amazon –> http://bit.ly/1MwRuPp
There’s never been any question in Sean Tucker’s mind that he’d do whatever it took to make it to the major leagues and be one of the best pitchers of his time. The day he acknowledged to himself that he was gay was also the day he vowed to stay in the closet in order to chase his dreams. The problem is, he never counted on Mason Atley.
Sean showed rookie short stop Mason Atley the ropes, both on the field and off. The two forged a friendship which continued as both of them moved through the ranks of the farm system and into the majors. Unfortunately, there’s always been one secret Mason never felt he could share with Sean. Until now.
For seven years, Sean lived with the fact that he loved a man who would never reciprocate. When Mason admits that he’s always known he’s bisexual but has never allowed himself to pursue a relationship with a man, will Sean be able to put aside his reservations about starting a relationship with the friend he’d always assumed was straight? And more importantly, will they be able to find a way to stay together when their careers keep them apart more than they can be together?

Book 1 - Shifter's Uprising Series.
Can be read as standalone.
In a world where shifters were rampant and humans were clueless as to their existence, the shifters of the land were ruled by the Masons – the royalty of the shifter world. For the most part the Masons were kept isolated from other shifters, preferring their work and commands to be carried out by a force known simply as the “Elite.”
No shifter wanted to come to the attention of the Elite. It usually resulted in death, or at the very least coercion into their illegally run underground cage fights, or sold into prostitution. Once marked by the Elite, very few escaped and even fewer talked about it. There were rumors, thousands of them, of a resistance movement that were fighting both for freedom from oppression and helping those who had come to the Elite’s attention. But nothing seemed to work against the ruling family’s armed forces.
In a harsh world the toughest fighters were sent to the Souterrain, home of the largest underground fighting club for shifters. Here, shifters of all kinds were injected prior to a fight to ensure they didn’t shift in front of the audiences of humans that thronged to one of the few places where you could see two men fight to the death. It was bloody, barbaric and humans came in droves to wager money on their favorites and to scream for more blood.
And it was in this world, the world of the Souterrain, that Alpha wolf Carlin found Lucas. A hybrid shifter who had lived in a human world. But Carlin didn't care about who Lucas was, or his weird genetics. Lucas was his true mate and someone worth fighting for. But love and freedom both come at a price, and for Carlin, it could be his life.
Warning - M/M romance, HEA, some violence, wolf shifters, male-male sex. A sexy as Alpha guided by his instincts and a hybrid shifter with a wicked imagination.

Oh, they might have jerked it a few times thinking about each other, but they’ll burn this mother to the ground before they ever get along. The only thing they have in common are their friends--Jefferson’s buddy Emmett, and Teddy’s BFF Noelani. Emmett’s just blown all his savings on a house near campus, and he needs tenants to help make the monthly payments. That’s where Teddy and Jefferson come in. Hey, anything’s better than the dorms.
So far so good. Until Noelani’s former fiancé Beau--also Emmett’s former best friend--rolls back into town. Panicked over the return of their old feelings for the rough-riding badass, Noelani and Emmett decide the only sensible ‘save’ is to get married. Of course.

Being in the spotlight is just part of being a professional athlete, but Callum needs a break. He arrives in Moncton unannounced, determined to help grow the team he just bought, and under the assumption he’d be welcome. Possibly he should have tried to make a better first impression.
Callum figures he can push through the rest of the summer, never expecting two kids, a host of friends, and his growing feelings for Rupert to derail everything he has ever believed about what he wanted, and what he could have.
