My rating: 4.5 of 5 stars
I haven’t done a romance review in awhile and I’m glad I had this one to read and review right now, because I really liked this fun and sexy book that’s the first in a new sports series by Violet Duke. I would have given the book five stars but I felt the beginning was a little slow moving and the ending brought in some unusual events that didn’t seem to mesh with the rest of the story.
That said, all the chapters in between are fabulous fun in a story of brilliant network sports analyst Jackson Gray being asked to mentor newly hired sideline reporter Leila Hart in this football oriented story. Jackson immediately senses that Leila is hiding a keen understanding of the game and he can’t imagine why.
The two begin a very flirtatious and fun working relationship, both vowing they won’t allow their attraction to turn into anything more. And Jackson admits he has some deep, dark secrets, as well, which we find out about late in the story. Sports and romance, what could be better?
I received this as an ARC from NetGalley.
