Goodreads: The author of Risky Game returns with a football team owner who’s a real player, and the woman who’s ready to call him out on everything . . .
Dot-com millionaire Jay McManus is discovering that owning a pro football team like the Baltimore Blaze isn’t easy. An anonymous blogger is out to destroy his reputation, and now his team is being sued by its own cheerleaders. If Jay’s not careful, he could lose big—and not just financially.
Bridgett Janik’s brother may play for the Baltimore Blaze, but she’s not thrilled to be defending Jay McManus, the man who broke her heart. It’s bad enough she has to mingle with Jay during games, but working beside her former lover may be too much for her body—and her heart—to resist.
Jay’s determined not to let Bridgett slip away from him a second time. But, as the two follow the mysterious blogger’s trail, secrets—both past and present—are revealed, and Jay and Bridgett must decide if their relationship can be something more than just sleeping with the enemy.
Ope’s Opinion: This is my first book by Tracy Solheim. Although this is book four of the Out of Bounds series, I did not feel like I was missing a part of the story.
The repetative theme of how hot Bridgett and Jay are for each other made the story move slowly. On the other hand, the subtle disclosure of their past relationship was written amazingly well and made me want to know more.
I enjoyed more of the story part of this book. I liked that each of the main characters had careers and were independent. I like how they were brought back into each others lives.
Side note: This may sound petty, but I would have enjoyed the reading experience more if the print was not so small with a large margin on the book.
Rating: 3 – I like the book enough to suggest it to a friend or two.
