Shannon Hale knows what she wants in life. Or so she thought.

Oliver Powell is a man who always gets what he wants. As the sexy as sin MVP Tight End, he’s arrogant. He’s loaded. He’s also got a sizable package below the belt that drives the women crazy.
And he’s focused. The prize—a Super Bowl ring on his finger.
His concentration on getting that ring is unwavering—until Shannon Hale shows up. Now the only game he wants to win involves her ending up in his bed.
The problem? Shannon wants nothing to do with NFL’s resident playboy.
The solution? Play dirty.

Well now … this is going to sound bad, but the book really didn’t have anything new to it but I still enjoyed the heck out of it. It had a really good proportion of sexy and romance and sport and family and friendship. The story’s been done a million times before and it’s a bit of a cliche, but what stood out was Oliver and Shannon as characters. So altho the story line is not something new, they were refreshing to read because the sparked all the time. When they interacted in any way it was just zing zing zing. I LOVED EVERY MINUTE OF IT.
One thing I really liked was Oliver’s growth in the book. He starts out a typical alpha jock but transforms thru the book. He definitely gives meaning to the phrase .. don’t judge a book by its cover 🙂 Shannon also does some growth of course, but his just stuck out for me. And I was super excited by the secondary characters and their future roles in this new series!
So overall, yeah, pick this book up if you want to read a really sexy sports romance that’s not superficial.
