Hard head. Bad attitude. Terrible boyfriendThat’s what my exes have said about me—but I wasn’t serious about any of them, so what do I care what rumors they spread? What I need is to be left alone; by the press, by the paparazzi, and by women.

Too bad I’m about to be surrounded by them for the weekend. My obnoxious, matchmaking brother is getting married, and he’s doing his damndest to find me a wedding date…


That’s what they say about good men—they’re hard to find. Not that when I find one, I’ll be the type he’s looking for; too nice, too ordinary, too boring.

My cousin is getting married, and her fiancé insists on throwing me at his brother. Cold, uncaring professional football player Tripp Wallace would never look twice at a woman like me. Too bad for both of us, I was wrong…

**** My Review ****

The author most definitely lit the lamp with this amazing Tic-Tac-Toe story. It landed on my kindle, and I just wanted a short peak, few lines, just to get the feeling, but I ended up devouring it in one sitting (instead of sleeping). I was engaged immediately from the first lines, and couldn’t talk myself into putting it down, not matter how late in the night it was. I went from smiling, to grinning and straight out to laughing out loud. Frist book from this author, definitely not the last, I loved her style, so gifted and imaginative.

A grumpy, famous football player, with a huge ego and a girl who does not fit into a stereotype at all…. witty and sexy back and forth, a few unusual dates and incredible chemistry, a meddling family, and a witty teenager… what more could you wish for?

Tripp –our hero, hard around the edges, a total jerk and so immature and clueless, yet irresistibly adorable. A total meathead, primarily interested in his sports career and judging everyone according to his own, twisted criteria and most definitely blunt as a hammer, nothing polished about him, and definitely no interest in intellectual culture or good manners. Totally fits the stereotype of football players, right? Yet, he is so sweet and interesting character that captures all of your attention from the first moment, especially with his inner dialogues which were totally hilarious.

Chandler was absolutely awesome. A well-bred young lady, trying to be independent and self-achieved yet unable to escape the influence of her rich and bossy family. Simple and shy, it could be said boring, yet sassy enough to rock Tripp’s world and bring him on his knees, or literally on his ass. She definitely is his true match in every possible way.

And their relationship…OMG… absolutely fantastic. From the harsh beginning, to the meddling of his family, to the funny wooing, to their passionate encounters…everything is absolutely crazy and hilarious.

The supporting characters were exceptional and perfect in more than one way, they fully complement the story, making it more appealing and unique. Every single member of his crazy family is absolutely amazing, and Molly – the nosy teenager is so refreshing and unique.

If you love a sports romance that has humor, sex, funny banter and two totally opposite characters that are perfect together, then you must read this one. Brilliantly written that will make you laugh and want to dwell longer into their world, savoring every little detail that makes it absolutely perfect for an amazing afternoon read.
