Summary

In this romantic-comedy novella, the sexiest player in the NFL and a small-town librarian prove that when opposites attract, their chemistry can be game changing.

Simone Thompson wakes up in a Vegas hotel suite to discover three things:

  • Her headache might kill her.
  • The guy spooned behind her isn't some random Vegas hookup...it's James Sumner, the NFL's bad-boy wide-receiver and her twin brother's teammate.
  • There's a ring on her finger - you know...the finger.

As part of a football family, Simone knows all about the game, the good, the bad and the ugly. That's why she joined her brother's trip to Vegas in the first place - to keep an eye on him, not to end up entangled with her crush. Her very out-of-her-league crush.

James has always had the hots for Simone, and now that they're married, he sees an opening to prove to her he's more than just a playboy and that they really do belong together. But if he's really going to win over his bookish princess, he'll need to execute the perfect play....

Well played

I loved it. This book was a bit short. There was room for a full on sport romance comedy but quality novellas is a dying brand so I was glad. Tasteful maybe mild romance, clean language and interesting story line

How do you know if a mistake is the right thing?

You wake up with a hangover and married, what next? Be true to yourself and each other.

Great story. Casting ???

I like the story and the female narrator. But the male image (man of color) on the cover is inconsistent with the male narrator’s voice (white man). I found it to be very distracting and took away from the story.
