The Unshakable series sprung from a story prompt about three college kids in love. I wrote Playing for Keeps, my only contemporary in print. I like the guys so much that I wrote Keeping Faith which has more action, adventure, suspense, than Playing for Keeps. Playing for Keeps and Keeping Faith are combined into one paperback, Unshakable.

Blurb: College running back, Trent Harte, has been living with his lovers, AJ Barnes and Brock Everett, for two years. Caught in a compromising position, rumors abound. It's hard enough to be an openly gay football player, but gossip and snide comments only adds to his stress. Threats against his partners causes Trent to wonder if he should step back from the relationship.
AJ and Brock know there is something wrong when Trent begins to pull away. A call from Trent's father only adds to his distress. AJ and Brock refuse to let him shoulder the responsibility alone and they call for help. Will Trent find the strength to withstand the pressure and hold on to those he loves? Or will AJ and Brock be too late to convince Trent that they are playing for keeps?
Rainbow Book Reviews -Serena Yates: "If you like threesome relationships that go deeper than the purely physical, if you enjoy stories about men who clearly love each other and give the support each man needs and when he requires it, and if you're looking for all that and would like it to be a hot and passionate tale as well, then you will probably enjoy this free short story." MM Good Book Reviews – KathyMac (4/5): "This is my first read by Lexi Ander and I really enjoyed this story. So much so that I will be starting the follow-up next. Even though we didn’t get any history on how the three became a unit, the author does a great job showing how in love they are. The plot was executed well from the time frame involved and it was a gratifying story. The dialogue is funny but serious when the situation called for it. Lexi shows depth and meaning in her sentences allowing the reader to visualize the scene."

Playing for Keeps and Keeping Faith are both in the paperback, Unshakable.
Blurb: Trent, Brock, and AJ are excited to spend Christmas together in their new home but secrets and dark dealings by Trent's estranged father interrupt their plans. Brock is kidnapped and Trent and AJ scramble to find a way to get Brock back before it is too late.
Several months after Trent Harte was drafted into the NFL, he, AJ Barnes, and Brock Everette are settling into their new home in Miami. Christmas is approaching and they are excited to share another holiday season with each other. Unbeknownst to them, William Harte, Trent's estranged father, double-crossed a deadly adversary and then disappeared. To draw William out of hiding, Trent becomes a target. In a horrible twist of fate, the kidnappers grab Brock instead, leaving AJ and Trent scrambling to find a way to get Brock back. Detectives believe Trent is responsible, and with each passing hour the likelihood of Brock returning home alive dwindles.
Brock traded his safety to ensure his lovers were out of harm's way. He would do it again even knowing he'd end up captured and restrained in a part of town that no one in their right mind would willingly go. The kidnappers are terrifying, but Brock is a fighter, holding on to hope with both hands. He must decide to either wait to be rescued or find a way to escape. Stuck between the wills of a ruthless assassin and an insane mob thug, something needs to happen soon or he'll never see Trent and AJ again.
Serena Yates for Rainbow Book Reviews: "If you enjoy stories about men who love each other deeply no matter what anyone else thinks, and if you're looking for an action-packed, intense read that is as suspenseful and emotionally intense as it is touching and hot, then you will probably enjoy this novel. All I can say is: I'd like some more stories about Brock, Trent, and AJ, please!" Caroline for Prism Book Alliance: "I love reading menage but they don’t always work well. This one has three very distinct characters that bring very different things to their relationship and it is well balanced and loving." KathyMac for MM Good Book Reviews: "In the meantime, don’t miss out on the amazing journey of love from Trent, AJ, and Brock. They fit together so well and they do find their happy ever after. If you are a reader that loves MMM or maybe someone with a curiosity about this dynamic, this is a great series to start with. Lexi Ander is an author that I will continue to follow…" Scott for Gay.Guy.Reading. and Friends: "I feel that Lexi brought great life to the characters. I found their relationship believable and I felt a connection to the characters."
