I’m Leo Landry, one of the best shutdown cornerbacks in the nation, and the New York Mavericks’ first round draft pick.
If James Bond spent his days running drills and his nights shutting out quarterbacks,
he’d dream about being me. But professional football is on a whole other level from college, and as the new guy, I’ve got everything to prove.
All I’ve got to do is focus, right?
Too bad life’s got other plans.
Blond hair, long lashes, and criminal blue eyes, there’s a pint-sized bombshell that I can’t stop thinking about.
I don’t even know her name, but she’s completely screwing up my game plan.
It’s too late to turn back now though. I have my eye on the prize, and I won’t settle for anything less.
4th down and only one goal in my sights--this pretty little mystery girl.
Good thing I’m at my best when the pressure’s on.
4 Star Review by Ashley
My stomach still hurts from laughing so much at 4th & Girl. I don't know how or where Max Monroe comes up with some of the things they write, but I don't really care because it's pure rom-com gold.
The first time Leo and Gemma meet had me cringing and laughing so hard that no sound came out. It was a perfect set up for all of Gemma's quirks and Leo's patience. I liked that Gemma knew she shouldn't settle for a job and life that didn't make her happy. It's what led her to Alma (sweet mother of pearl- that woman is in a league all her own) and eventually back to Leo.
I liked that they didn't spend every waking moment together. Leo's job made that kind of impossible. But they were certainly creative in making time for each other when he was on the road. As he built up his relationship with Gemma, Leo also connected more with the rest of the team. Yes, there were plenty of Cam, Sean and Quinn sightings sprinkled throughout. It was the connections he made with his teammates that caused the biggest problems with Gemma. Especially when he used them to try and push her when she wasn't ready. For as much of a hard stand Gemma took, she was the one who eventually swallowed her pride and owned her fears.
From drag queens and King Kong to the football field and karaoke 4th and Girl was a non-stop feel good read. Max Monroe created characters that were adorably awkward and super sexy at the same time. Gemma and Leo accepted each others faults but also pushed each other boundaries. And that ending, can you say full circle? It was perfect.
