Title: The Varsity Dad Dilemma
Author: Lex Martin
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: July 20, 2021
â A sexy, small town sports romance from USA Today bestselling author Lex Martin! â
Whatâs worse than having Rider Kingston, the star quarterback, give you the big brush-off because he doesnât want to get serious? Youâd probably think living across the street from him where you get a firsthand view of his hookups, right?
Thatâs what I thought. Until someone drops off a baby with a note pinned to her blanket that says one of those jocksâeither Rider or one of his roommatesâis the father. The problem? Baby mama doesnât mention which of these numbskulls is the sperm donor.
I wouldnât care about their paternity problemsânot the slightest bitâexcept my brother lives there too. Which means that adorable squawking bundle might be my niece, and thereâs no way Iâm leaving her unattended with those bumbling football players.
They need my help, even if they donât know it yet. Once we solve this dilemma and figure out whoâs the daddy, Iâm out.
Iâll just ignore Rider and those soul-searing looks he gives me every time I reach for the baby. He broke my heart three years ago. He wonât get a second chance.

As I walk Sienna to her car, she squeals. âHoly crap, is that Rider Kingston?â
Without my permission, my gaze slides across the street to the oversized man-child, who has the gall to be moving furniture shirtless while flexing his stupid abs. Judging by the other sweaty minions pouring out of the two story, Riderâs getting new roommates too.
My eye twitches again, and my focus snaps back to Sienna. âI thought you said you werenât a fan of football.â
âOh, Iâm not. I canât sit through an entire game. But I am a fan of football players.â Her gaze turns ravenous as she scans my neighborâs front lawn. Or, likely, the glistening eight-pack Riderâs put on display. âAll that testosterone. Those bulging muscles. That deep, masculine grunting. Oh yeah. Get me one of those!â
She cackles, and Rider hears it.
Of course he does.
Shockingly, he deigns to speak to me.
âHey, Gabby,â he shouts. âHow was your summer?â
Iâm not sure when he decided to stop ignoring me, but thatâs better than pretending weâre friends, which weâll never be.
I close my eyes because I donât need any reminders of his masculine beauty. And I definitely donât need to see that sexy smirk, the one more powerful than his cannon that took the team to the playoffs last year.
No, Iâm not interested in the star quarterback. Not anymore.
Turning on my heel, I wave my middle finger and march back to my house.
Laughter is all I hear as I slam the front door shut behind me.
