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.

4.5 stars!!

There are 2 of my favorite things that made me love this book. 1- football and 2- Stacey Lynn's writing. She is one of my favorite authors and this book was so good!!

Shannon moves to Raleigh, NC to be near her baby brother who is now playing for the Raleigh Rough Riders. She has always been super close to him, so when he was traded and her relationship fell apart, it only made sense to move to where he was. On one of her first nights in Raleigh, she meets her brother's teammate Oliver. Oh how I loved/hated Oliver. At first he comes off crass and harsh. He is a verbena ball player who thinks the world revolves around him. Oliver and Shannon are so opposites, that there is crazy chemistry. Shannon is super kind and warm to everyone she meets, where Oliver is rough and unpolished.

Oliver and Shannon have intense and immediate chemistry and, man, did they have some hot and steamy scenes. But there was only a strong bond they had. Oliver doesn't like to let people in and get close to him. He is more of a one night with a different women type of guy, but not with Shannon. She is inching her way into his heart from the second they meet. There is something special about her. Oliver knows it right away, but tries to fight it. 

I love sports romance and I think Stacey did an amazing job with this one!!!
