Back cover blurb: The first time I met Brody Easton was in the men’s locker room. It was my first interview as a professional sportscaster. The famed quarterback decided to bare all. And by all, I don’t mean he told me any of his secrets. No. The arrogant ass decided to drop his towel, just as I asked the first question. On camera. The Super Bowl MVP quickly adopted a new hobby-screwing with me. When I pushed back, he shifted from wanting to screw with me, to wanting to screw me. But I don’t date players. And it’s not because I’m one of the few women working in the world of professional football. I’d date an athlete. It’s the other kind of player I don’t date. You know the type. Good looking, strong, cocky, always looking to get laid. Brody Easton was the ultimate player. Every woman wanted to be the one to change him. But the truth was, all he needed was a girl worth changing for. Turned out, I was that girl. Simple right? Let’s face it. It never is. There’s a story between once upon a time and happily ever after… And this one is ours.

My review: Okay, so this is the second book this year I have bought based solely on its cover. But it’s a really, really good cover 😉 The book is also good, and Brody Easton is HOT, but the angst was a bit much for me and I feel it could have done with another quick edit. Football teams having a “bi week” does not mean what the author thinks it means, although it’s nice to know the NFL encourages sexual fluidity, lol! Keeland is a new author for me and this probably won’t be the only book of hers I will read, especially if she writes Indie’s story next.

My rating: 4/5
