A beard-related dare and one hot-as-hell kiss changes everything. NFL center Ethan Dexter’s focus has always been on playing football and little else. Except when it comes to one particular woman. The lovely Fiona Mackenzie might not care about his fame, but she’s also never looked at him as anything more than one of her brother-in-law’s best friends. That ends now. Fi doesn’t know what to make of Dex. The bearded, tattooed, mountain of man-muscle looks more like a biker than a football player. Rumor has it he’s a virgin, but she finds that hard to believe. Because from the moment he decides to turn his quiet intensity on her she’s left weak at the knees and aching to see his famous control fully unleashed. Fi ought to guard her heart and walk away; they live vastly different lives in separate cities. And Dex is looking for a forever girl. But Dex has upped his game and is using all his considerable charm to convince Fi he's her forever man.
Once again, I’m reading a series out of order. This time starting from the end and, funny enough, I actually have the first book on my kindle. Not sure if it was the cover or the description but I felt drawn to this book and had to read it first. Luckily, these books can be read as stand alone stories and, even though some of the characters continue through the stories, not having read the first two books wasn’t an issue.
We learn early on that Dex has had his eye on Fiona for a long time but has never made his move. The timing was off, or they lived in different cities, or their lives were going in opposite directions…the reasons were varied but that never stopped him from crushing on her. Finally, though, he can’t wait any longer and comes clean with his desires and we’re treated to some very hot chemistry. These two set off fireworks whenever they’re together! Of course, becoming a couple, especially when one is a professional football player can be difficult. They encounter several obstacles and, in typical new couple fashion, have some miscommunications that they need to wade their way through in order to achieve their HEA.
I loved Ethan “Dex” Dexter and his single-mindedness. He gives his all to his career and to the woman of his dreams no matter the price. Definitely swoonworthy!! Fiona was a little less confident than Dex and it took her a while to find her inner fierceness but I really enjoyed how her character grew as the story progressed. I also loved the secondary characters. The friendships and the way they supported each other made this story feel very real.
If you love sexy, fun reads then this is the book for you. If you love big, strong, tatted, bearded sports guys, then this is the book for you. If you love a guy who’s a virgin but can still manage a little dirty talk, this book is for you. So, I guess what I’m saying is that chances are you’ll enjoy this story…so go ahead an give it a shot.
