The first rule of football–don't screw with a streak. My career is finally looking up, and I'm leading a new pro team down the field every Sunday. No way will I mess with that. But when I meet the most stunning and captivating woman I've ever seen, I tell myself one night will have to be enough. But it's not. And now I can't get her out of my mind. Even when I'm playing. Even when I need to focus. Even when I’m on the hottest streak of my life. And it turns out, she's not just some random woman I met. She works for the team. My team. *** I only have one goal this season–do my part as the team's lawyer to keep them out of trouble. Help rebuild their reputation on and off the field. There's no room for error and certainly no room for a secret tryst with a player . . . even if he's the quarterback.
A short, fun sports romance with good chemistry between the characters and a simple straight-forward story line, this book was an easy, quick read. Normally, I’m not a fan of novellas and don’t read them often because it feels like the story is short-changed by the lack of pages. However, in this case, the characters here were well developed and the story itself felt complete. And, much to my surprise, the romance felt like a slow burn – rather unheard of in a novella length book.
The main characters, Dani and Drew, were very likeable and their chemistry was definitely hot. Dani is a strong woman and Drew is the studly football player women sigh over. Together they experience some drama and misunderstandings and try to work through them as you would expect in a romance. The dual POV was really great – I always like to hear and understand what each character is thinking. And the secondary characters, especially Dani’s sister, were fun as well.
Overall, I enjoyed the story and the writing. This was an enjoyable, sexy, quick read that left me smiling and ready to reach for another Lauren Blakely book!
