Claimed: Upending Tad Spin Off #2: Breck and Kai The Courtside King Duology, Book 2 By: Kora Knight Narrated by: Michael Dean

Claimed, the second volume of the Courtside King duology was worth the wait!

From the blurb:

Breck wants him more than any championship title, but to win him, he’s got to sink the greatest basket of his life.

With college behind him and the NBA in sight, draft shoo-in Breck Harland should be riding cloud nine with visions of grandeur and glory. 

Should be. He’s striven for this his entire life.

But as of late, one all-consuming obstacle has planted itself firmly in the path of his dreams.

The obstacle: Kai Nakado. Martial arts Grandmaster and Breck’s dream-Dom obsession. The wonders he’s shown Breck behind the privacy of closed doors, the feelings he’s elicited inside Breck’s elusive heart, have introduced a whole other side to life that Breck never knew existed.

What starts out as raw, fiery attraction turns to a soul-deep connection—and King Breck of the Court couldn’t be less prepared. No longer does he merely want Kai. Now he needs him, on a level that shakes his foundation.

But a future with Kai isn’t possible, because Kai refuses to hide with Breck in his closet of fear.

And going public would all but destroy Breck’s hard-won chances of getting signed. He’s worked too hard, has too much at stake. And now his warring emotions have him mentally spiraling.

As Kai teeters on the precipice of cutting his losses, torn by wanting to support Breck but unwilling to tolerate his manic, reckless behavior, Breck is forced to decide which means more: his high-profile basketball career, or a life with Kai—the one and only person on the planet who's managed to claim his heart.

Experience this breathtaking conclusion to the Courtside King Duology, packed with heartfelt struggles and smoldering passion, inside and out of the sheets.

Warning: Contains gloriously graphic scenes of guy-on-guy lovin'.

Lesetiger's Review:

When I finished volume one of the Courtside King duology, the wait was on. I was totally jittery until finally volume 2, Claimed, was released as an audiobook because I was dying to know what happened next with Breck and Kai. 

Guys, it was worth the wait! 

Breck and Kai meet again and the chemistry between them is still red hot! However, both are incredibly stubborn and I would have loved to have given one or the other a push in the right direction. Kai is a martial arts coach and he has his strict principles after having his heart broken once before. 
Breck is the king of the basketball court and his career is his top priority. Outing him would not go over well. 

Kai and Breck meet on different occasions and they can't deny it - the chemistry between the two is definitely there and the air is crackling. But can the two manage to find a common path and face their fears?

What I really liked was meeting the other couples from the Upending Tad universe again.

It was a lot of pleasure to listen to the audio book. I was very quickly captivated by the story and could stop the audio book only very badly. Therefore, I had listened to the 12 hours in only two days. This is also due to the narrator, Michael Dean, who did a brilliant job as always. He captured the personalities of Breck and Kai very well and I loved how he portrayed their emotions. I also like his sexy voice and his entertaining narration.
