To win the game, they’ll have to risk losing their hearts…

When a bizarre child custody stipulation pits popular sports blogger Gracie Gable against football superstar Jake Malone, losing the battle for her twin nieces isn't the only thing Gracie has to worry about. Forced to live for three months under the same roof as the sexy tight end, will she fall prey to his flirtatious pursuit? Or worse, will the skeletons in her closet destroy her chance for the love and family she so desperately wants?

Neglected by his parents as a boy, Jake doesn’t believe in happily ever after. Yet living with Gracie and the twins might be enough to change his mind—and his womanizing ways. But when the press unearths a scandal from Gracie’s past, will he lose the one woman he was ready to open his heart to?

My Review:

This was definitely a one of a kind story backed up by an intimate writing style. I enjoyed how Crowne balanced the various aspects of the plot, never allowing any one aspect to completely overshadow the other components. I was definitely curious to see how it all turned out, leading up to Crowne’s satisfying conclusion. Being the first novel in the series, I was ok with the slow development at the beginning as we get to know the setting and the players. Crowne has me intrigued enough with her writing that I’ll definitely be checking out the 2nd novel.

The way that the main characters in this novel perpetually bumped heads as their personalities clashed was funny, for the most part. There were a couple of times where I found that it got out of hand, but that also served to highlight their personalities. The way that family secrets keep coming out kept me on my toes, throwing a great many plot twists at readers.

This was an enjoyable and satisfying start to Crowne’s series. It was a unique introduction into this author’s writing.
