Trying to live down his very public indiscretions, Carolina Cougars kicker Jaxon Reed feels like the most hated man in the NFL. Fans and teammates alike treat him with the disrespect he figures he deserves. Unfortunately for them, Jaxon’s no easy target. As payback, he sets his sights on the quarterback’s sister: a sultry brunette who’s curvy, confident, and sexy as hell. But what begins as a revenge fling turns into so much more—a lesson in humanity, and in love.
“Deft plotting and a hair-raising finale elevate this pulse-pounding tale.”—Publishers Weekly
“I loved this book.”—A Crazy Vermonter’s Book Reviews
“A fun and entertaining story . . . I can’t wait to read more books in this series.”—Cocktails & Books
Jaxon has been the hated person on the team since he tried messing with Evan and Summer’s relationship. He’s tried making amends and some have forgiven him. A new team member threatens to shake that all up.
Bristol has dated football players before and it never ended well. When her brother is picked up by the Carolina Cougars she is stoked to have him close to her but is not looking to hook up with her brother’s new teammates.
A chance meeting in a bar gives Jaxon an idea on how to stick it to his new team mate. He doesn’t count on developing real feelings for her though.
I definitely recommend this book but I wouldn’t say it’s my favorite of the series. I’ll definitely be reading more. 🙂
“Hey,” I squealed, waving my hand in the air. I was so happy my brother would finally get to meet Jack.
He walked toward me with a smile, but when he caught sight of Jack, that smile turned into an all-out heated glare. “What the fuck are you doing here?” he growled, quickening his pace.
Jack froze and gripped my arm, grumbling, “Shit,” before pulling me around to face him. “Bristol, listen to me. This isn’t how I wanted you to find out.”
Everything was happening so fast, I didn’t know what to think. “Find out what?” I asked desperately.
Before he could reply, Ryan ripped me out of Jack’s hold and pushed him away. Jaw tense, Jack was ready to fight, but I couldn’t let that happen. “Ryan, stop!” I shouted, digging my nails in his shoulder.
Jerking his head around, he glared straight at me. “Do you even know who this cocksucker is? He’s playing you to get back at me.”
I threw my hands in the air. “What the hell are you talking about? How do you even know him?”
Jack’s eyes never left mine, the anguish on his face making me sicker by the second. I had a feeling I wasn’t going to like what came out of Ryan’s mouth. He scoffed incredulously and spat at Jack. “He’s Jaxon fucking Reed, the asshole on the team I’ve been telling you about. Don’t tell me you didn’t know?”
Jack stepped forward, but then again, that wasn’t his name. It was Jaxon Reed.
