A steamy, grumpy sunshine sports romance featuring a woman down on her luck, a star basketball player with a filthy mouth, and a connection neither of them can deny.
After being dumped and losing my job the same week, the last thing my broken heart needs is a rebound.
I’m escaping across the country to help my perfect sister plan her dream wedding, and to prove to both of us everything is under control.
But a combination of tequila and turbulence on the flight there lead to word-vomiting all my troubles to the huge and handsome stranger in the first-class seat next to mine.
Only his whispered dirty diversions keep me sane until landing.
Despite the spark of attraction, we go our separate ways.
Or so I thought.
Turns out the tall, muscular, tattooed tower of a man from the plane is the star player on my future brother-in-law’s pro basketball team.
Clay is the last person I should gravitate toward. They’re called “players” for a reason.
Grumpy and cynical, he carries a weight on his shoulders I can’t possibly fathom.
He’s also the only one who knows my secrets and gets my heart racing.
The more we’re thrust together, the stronger the chemistry between us becomes.
Hooking up with the all-star athlete isn’t the way to get my life on track…but it could just be the game changer we’ve both been searching for.
4.5 Star Review by Lorena
Nova -- Oh Nova, she was just so clueless when it came down to sports and fame and when she ran into one of the most famous basketball players in the NBA on the plane, all she focused on was the hottie with all the tattoo's. She just started rambling from her nerves and fear of flying, and although Clay wasn't keen on following in and entertaining her, he also realized her fear of flying and his niceness kicked in.
Nova never thought she would run into Clay again, although at the time she didn't know his name, but once she saw him at the sports complex, she put two and two together and realized who he was. She also knew that probably hooking up with him would be a bad idea but she was impulsive and did things on a whim. She became close to Clay and he gravitated towards her because he realized that Nova was not like the rest of the girls he hooked up with, she was different and so he had to treat her differently, something about her drew him to her.
But with that ending, certainly things are going to be different in the 2nd book. AND I CANNOT WAIT TO READ IT!!
Boy, I'm sure things are going to be strained and crap is going to hit the fan!
Piper Lawson certainly made us want to throw the kindle with that ending!!
Nova and Clayton will give us a run for our money. Although it seems like they are perfect, there seems to be some inconsistencies and I can't wait to find out what's going on with these two!!
