First in a new series from author Violet Duke!!

Leila Hart's love of football has taken her to the world of sports casting, becoming an NFL sportscaster has always been her dream, and now it finally might be becoming a reality with the help of Jackson Gray. Jackson's mentoring and support means the world to Leila, and he is helping her reach her full potential, and catch the eyes of the network, but he is also starting to grow on Leila. Even though she knows having a relationship with him is off limits, she just can't help herself from falling for him, being around him everyday, and having his sexy voice whisper stats in her ear has her wanting to dabble in more than just friendship. She knows starting something with him could be detrimental to her career... and her heart... but her desire for him is starting to win out!

Jackson Gray doesn't do relationships, he prefers to keep his entanglements with woman strictly on a one night basis, but something about his sassy and sexy co-worker has him rethinking his stance. Working alongside her day in and day out, and seeing the way she embraces the game of football, draws him in and has him thinking about crossing lines he knows he shouldn't. Starting something with her would be detrimental to their careers, and to both their hearts, but the unwavering chemistry they share is leading him to believe this is something he just can't walk away from. He knows she deserves someone who can give her the future she wants, but the very idea of seeing her with someone else just isn't something he wants to think about, so he lets the desire he has for her take a hold, hopes he can handle what lies ahead...

This was my first book from this author and I have to say it turned out to be a pretty impressive first read for me, barely a chapter into it, and I was hooked! Some of my favorite reads are sports related romance stories, and I have to say this one definitely earned a spot among-st my favorites, and has me looking forward to future installments in the series. It has just the right mix of everything you want in a good romance story; it was brimming with intensity and passion, packed with steamy one liners and sexy infused banter, and laced with just enough suspense to keep you on the edge of your seat the whole way through! I highly recommend you give this read a try, Ms. Duke's well crafted characters are sure to provide you with one truly exceptional reading escape, and leave you desperate for more!!
