A smitten bad boy? Yes, please! I absolutely LOVED this hero, a guy who listens to the devil on his shoulder too often. He’s moody, broody, tattooed, and talented – and he’s a total softie on the inside. This one’s a little bit enemies to lovers, a little bit friends to lovers, and a whole lot of opposites attract. The chemistry is SMOKIN’ hot, and the sexual tension is there from start to finish. I devoured it in one sitting, and I have no regrets. Sorensen is an excellent writer who never disappoints – and I’m definitely looking forward to more from the series.
The story follows Dominic, a pro football player who has a reputation for acting out. Tempers and tension were the norm on his old team, but Dominic has just moved to a new city – and he’s already made a terrible first impression. When he’s sentenced to some community service, Dominic meets Faith. Faith is the daughter of the team’s owner, and Dominic assumes that she’s just another spoiled rich girl. But when Dominic discovers that Faith is actually the girl he befriended online years ago, he sees her in a whole new light. And the devil on Dominic’s shoulder encourages him to see if Faith would fall for the brooding bad boy version of him… without revealing that they’ve been virtual friends for years.
I loved Dominic, I really did. It’s easy to see that he’s more bark than bite, and once he discovers Faith’s “other” identity, it’s a game-changer. They’ve got the kind of instant chemistry that keeps you glued to the pages, and knowing that there’s already an established connection makes the instalust a lot easier to handle. These two are SEXY together, and while this is a slow burn, it’s a fan-worthy one. There are sparks in their every interaction, and the tension of the lie (of omission) between them takes everything up another notch. Longtime fans of the author will appreciate how this ties into the Washington Wolves series, but newer fans will have absolutely no trouble reading this as a standalone series starter. I can’t wait for more from the series, and that sneak peek at the end has me SO ready for the next couple. I was lucky enough to receive an early copy and am voluntarily leaving a review of this sports romance.
Rule number 1 for the team owner’s daughter? Don’t date the players.
Especially not hotheaded tight ends with tattoos and impulse control problems.
That’s why Dominic Walker is completely off my radar. Sort of.
Babysitting the team troublemaker when he’s forced to volunteer for the foundation where I work means I can’t exactly avoid him.
I wish I had though. Because once I get to know Dominic, it’s almost impossible to ignore the feelings he brings out in me.
Pretty soon, I’m breaking all my rules. I just have to hope he doesn’t break my heart in the process.
About the Author:
Well, let’s see … I’m a wife and a mother. If the things that I write bring a smile to someone’s face, then I’ve done my job. I am obsessed with Outlander (both the books and the show). I’m almost exclusively a romance reader, which means some people will never consider me a literary snob. If I could meet one historical figure, it would be Jane Austen. I received my Bachelors in Public Relations and worked in health care marketing before I had my babies. I hate Twitter. I do it, but I hate it. Also, if you want to get on my good side, bring me wine and I’ll love you forever.
