New York Times bestselling author, K. Bromberg, is back with a heartfelt, standalone romance
and a new hero to steal your heart . . .
The contract with Major League Soccer was supposed to help repair my damaged reputation.
Then I discovered that I’d made a deal with the devil: the player I’m supposed to recruit is none
other than the bad boy, star Premier League footballer, Rush McKenzie.
British. Tattooed. Sexy. A man currently at the center of a huge scandal.
The goal? To convince him to stay in the States.
But what’s wrong with a little fun in the meantime? No strings. No sweet nothings. Just a way
to pass the time while we’re both struggling to prove our true selves to the world.
If someone found out our relationship was anything more than professional, it would only serve
to prove all our critics right.
I never should have agreed to take the fall.
But I did and I’m a man of my word.
Even if it means risking everything I’ve worked for.
The only bright side is Lennox Kincade.
Gorgeous. Defiant. Rumor-tainted. Totally off-limits.
Sharing a house with the gorgeous sports agent should have been a fun distraction from the
turmoil. Someone to help pass the time while the tensions back home die down.
But what started as nothing, ends up as something I never saw coming.
**** My Review ****
One step to complete success, only to find out that the debt from the past has to be paid. The bill always comes at the end, the price is high, but the promise must be fulfilled …. And it does not matter at all what is the truth in that world of power and fame one believes in what is served …. The price is that , but at least in all that chaos, she appears , the beautiful girl who surpasses everyone with her charm and looks … just perfect, a little fun in the meanwhile…. but what will happen when the fun becomes something so important, and instead of wanting the time to pass faster, we want it to slow down ….
That is the story of the sexy English football player Rush, who is forced to spend some time in the United States to get away from the scandal that shakes his professional and personal life. …. but what will happen when the sexy Lennox Kincade appears and they have to live under the same roof for a while … Can he ignore that magnetic attraction that overwhelms them from the first meeting?
The sexy and snarky banter, the scorching chemistry, the connection, the depth of the feelings between Rush and Lennox was a bit insta and so explosive from the very beginning. I love that this book is written in dual POV, each one so perfectly portraying their thoughts and feelings and both flowing seamlessly. Rush is so sexy and confident, so at least he appears to be. His cocky appearance hides wounds and vulnerability from the past that has marked him. A man who doesn’t know how to trust, how to love, how to accept anyone in his love.
Lennox is just amazing heroine, a woman in that male world, a woman who struggles to succeed, despite everything. Stubborn and sassy, but strong enough to embrace the truth and reach for what she wants. The fact that she has a morals and spine and didn’t let her situation/circumstances lessen her demeanor and actions is admirable.
Between the charmingly crafted words, the emotions that fill each chapter, the chemistry between the main characters and the swoon-worthy end , I would give this book more stars if that was possible.
This is absolutely engrossing love tale with sizzling chemistry that will make you laugh, sign and swoon. Don’t start this one unless you intend to get sucked in for hours, because believe me that you wouldn’t be able to put it down until the very last words.
