Floored by Love: Rings Trilogy book 2 by Finn Dixon

"This is it. He’ll never get it if I don’t say it. I cupped his face with my hands, forcing him to look into my eyes. “You may have broken my heart four years ago, but you’ve found all the pieces, put them back where they belong, and made my heart whole again. I loved you then and I love you now.” - Camden

From the Floored by Love blurb:


I tell myself I can do it all over again. And do it better. Even without a boyfriend.

I mean...who better to succeed at the Olympics than me? Though training this close to Cam again and seeing how his body has developed might be too much for me.

Plus, being naked in the locker room with him makes it even harder...to focus.

It doesn’t take long for my pining curiosity to turn into desperate hope.

Is it possible that Cam still has feelings for me?


I relied on Erika to survive my heartbreak. I even made a new friend, the tall glass of water known as Colton. Any normal gay dude would have thrown themselves at him and said, ‘Pick a hole.’

Not me, of course. While I was tempted, at least one part of me didn’t give the green light. My heart.

What was left of it still belonged to Luke.

Without answers for what happened in Brisbane, he’s my teammate again. If only my hormones would mind their own business, then maybe I could focus on the Olympics and worry about Luke after I win.

Piece of ass...I mean, piece of cake.

I’m so fucked.

Floored by Love is a full-length gay romance novel, the second in the Rings Trilogy, with no major triggers, but possibly a little angst. Within these pages, you’ll find notepad flirting, almost-sex in a hospital, freeballing, a wet superhero with a bare ass, five Olympians in a hot tub and muscles flexing beneath designer jockstraps. Oh. It’s also the Olympics again. And though there’s a third book coming, there is no cliffhanger this time.

Laora's Review:

I was awaiting this second book in the Rings Trilogy series to learn how things would progress between Cam and Luke.

Floored by Love takes place at the next Olympics and they find their HFN after an incident with Cam that makes Luke realize Cam is more important than his family. With a spectacular semi spontaneous coming out by Cam. Wow

I enjoyed reading about previously introduced characters and learning about new ones.

The horny hormone level was very high in this book , as was in the previous one. But you might expect that from viral and fit men in their prime. I am not a man so can't comment on that.

I am looking forward to the last book in the series to see how and if Luke and Cam their relation develops further. I also hope the other guys in the team will get a bit more backstory and development in their relationships. Or the author might decide they get their own book(s).

Tatted Book Freak's Review:

The author depicted hardships the LGBTQ+ are subjected to by a close-minded society perfectly, paying extra attention to those in the spotlight.
A new author for me and I was impressed by the storyline, helped tremendously that I have a weak spot for Olympic gymnastics. The author depicted hardships the LGBTQ+ are subjected to by a close-minded society perfectly, paying extra attention to those in the spotlight. The struggles gymnast go through daily, along with expectations by their parents and country, is a lot so dealing with a close minded society should not have to be a necessity. 

“𝕎𝕖𝕝𝕝, 𝕚𝕗 𝕪𝕠𝕦 𝕨𝕒𝕟𝕥 𝕥𝕠 𝕥𝕠𝕦𝕔𝕙 𝕚𝕥, 𝕝𝕖𝕥 𝕞𝕖 𝕜𝕟𝕠𝕨.”

The relationship between Luke and Cam was pure, even with one’s parents not approving. Their connection was definitely undeniable right away, even with their initial forced separation. Their foundation was already firm from their previous relationship, but their continued growth throughout was beautifully innocent with raw emotional passion. There was also an entire side of lust with an over abundance of sexual tension!!

Angel's Review:

This is the second book in this high stakes gymnastic series. This book takes place 4 years after the events that occured in the first books. I have to say, I enjoyed this book a lot more than the first one. We got introduced to new characters, new storylines, we also finally got the reason why Luke just went awol on all of his friends. 

I thought this book improved a lot from the first one! One of the things I disliked about the first book was how many spicy scenes were in it, in the first story it seemed more focused on those scenes than building a relationship. But! This book was the opposite! Luke and Cam took their time to build up their relationship, and yes, there were still spicy scenes, but we still got cute bonding moments outside of the bedroom too. Which I really appreciated. 

I was shocked by how we didn't see as much of the characters from the first book. They were mentioned but didn't have a huge part, and at first I was weary about it. Although, I ended up falling in love with these other characters just as much as I had with Tyler, Grant, and Graham. I adored Orion's shyness and hesitancy towards talking to a guy who might be interested in him.  And Colton's southern charm was hilarious! He definitely reminded me of Tyler but he was still his own character. And Alex! The only straight guy on the team! He was so supportive and such a great friend and sport about getting dragged to gay clubs. He hardly complained about it. 

Overall I enjoyed this book so much! I can't see what happens next!
