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:

It was fun reading a story about a soccer, excuse me, football player. One that came to the US to escape scandal. Now while he wasn’t necessarily modeled on anyone, there was another character that in a way kind of was like David Beckham, but he hadn’t moved to the US. As usual, Bromberg has written a steamy, yet emotional story. One that hooked me and kept me reading and wanting to know if the two of them could figure out how to overcome their issues and be together. The issues not only having to do with emotional and social, etc., but also included the distance between them if Rush goes back to his job like he wants.

While I didn’t love this as much as the first one in the series, it was still good, and it was still great to see the family Lennox has and how they actually dealt with problems. It reminded me of my own family in that way. And I’m definitely eager to read the rest of the family members’ stories in upcoming books!
