She’s NFL royalty. He’s the star quarterback of a tanking team. When she takes ownership, balls will roll . . . and the truth will out.
Rafe Macintyre—the rocket-armed Carolina Crush quarterback—has nothing to lose and everything to prove. All because of one woman . . . Miss Peyton Fox. When the tough-as-nails chick takes over as team owner, Rafe is ready to turn the epic-fail season into a Super Bowl championship. But the winning has to start with Peyton’s love.
No stranger to playas on and off the field, Peyton Fox is born and bred NFL royalty. Been there, done him, and called the plays even before she took up the Carolina Crush crown. She has zero time for a love life and even less time for games unless they happen between the endzones. Unfortunately, Rafe Macintyre has one hell of an arm, and he’s full of hot southern charm. He’s not too bad to drool over either, but it’s been five years since she tangled with him—a mistake she doesn’t plan on repeating.
The consequences of one night of rebellion will last a lifetime. It’s all fun and games until someone gets knocked up.
I like Rie Warren and her writing. This book is no different. It had little to no angst. The flow was ok, I felt the beginning was a bit slow. I fell in love with the Rafe. The other people were likable. This a good second chance romance.
Peyton Fox inherits the Carolina Crush from her father after he has a sudden heart attack. The Crush had just gotten defeated and it is the last game of the season. She walks in and shakes it up so to speak. The team needed it. I loved her no-nonsense attitude, how strong and confident she is. She is willing to put the team in their place. She wants to make them a winning team and will do what she has to to do it. Even if the coordinator and-and some of the coaching staff don’t agree. Then there is the secret she is hiding.
Rafe Macintyre is an alpha male, possessive and a big softy with a huge heart, not at all what you would think him to be. He made me melt. He can’t forget the night that he and Peyton had five years ago, right after he signed with the team. He can’t forget her and he still wants her.
Now with all that there were times I wanted to smack Peyton around. She was up and down and seemed so indecisive. She wanted him then didn’t, but she really did. She didn’t want anything standing in her way of a getting a winning team and season, so she was reluctant. There is more to it than just that. When things finally come to fruition, everything then moves a bit faster.
I loved how the author spoke about football. It had me hook line and sinker, pulling me in and I felt like I was sitting there watching the game. Rafe and Peyton have undeniable chemistry and you can feel it through this book. They are hot and sexy as well as loving and passionate. I look forward to reading the next book in the series.
