Goodreads: The New York Times bestselling author of Big Girl Panties and The Sweet Spot is back with a funny, sweet, and sizzling novel about the game of love, in which a hot quarterback must figure out how to score big with a beautiful and talented media analyst after a heartbreaking fumble.
Star quarterback, first-round draft-pick, and heartthrob Tyson Palmer has made a name for himself with his spectacular moves. When the head coach of the Austin Mavericks refuses to let him waste his million-dollar arm, Tyson makes a Hail Mary pass at redemption and succeeds with everyone . . . except Dani, whose negative comments about his performance draw high ratings and spectacular notices of her own.
Dani can’t forgive Tyson’s transgressions or forget the sizzling history the two of them shared in college, a passionate love Tyson casually threw away. And even more infuriating, he doesn’t realize that the bombshell with huge ratings is the cute girl whose heart he once broke.
But can a woman trying to claw her way to the top and a quarterback who knows all about rock bottom make it to the Super Bowl without destroying each other? And what will happen when Tyson—riding high now that he’s revived his career—realizes he needs to make an even more important comeback with Dani? Can he make some spectacular moves to get past her defenses—or will she sideline him for good?
Ope’s Opinion: If you are a romance read, you will love all the steamy scenes in this book. The first chapter just one big steamy scene. After that the story begins – which is a really good story with interesting characters.
I liked the second chance, come back part of the book – it didn’t happen over night and it wasn’t easy. I also liked it taking awhile for Tyson and Dani to find each other again.
I didn’t like all the steamy parts or the sudden on and off of the relationship. it was like they were together and in love – they weren’t talking and one or both were mad, then they were back together. It was all abrupt.
The ending was what you would expect.
