Trying to live down his very public indiscretions, Carolina Cougars kicker Jaxon Reed feels like the most hated man in the NFL. When he’s traded away, his new teammates in California don’t waste any time making his life miserable. Unfortunately for them, Jaxon’s no easy target. As payback, he sets his sights on the quarterback’s sister: a sultry brunette who’s curvy, confident, and sexy as hell. But what begins as a revenge fling turns into so much more.
Bristol Thomas doesn’t have time for games, especially those played by her brother’s Neanderthal teammates. A talented interior designer with lofty goals, she doesn’t know the first thing about football, or Jaxon—except that he’s exactly the type of man she usually avoids. But when his deep laugh and deeper kisses break through her walls, she becomes the target of a fan who’s obsessed with Jaxon. Now she needs to know that Jaxon has her back . . . because he already has her heart.
(Received ARC from NetGalley in exchange for our honest review.)
Jaxon Reed, the kicker for the Carolina Cougars, has a reputation for causing trouble. Their quarterback was injured in a game and knew he was not coming back. He was replaced by a guy from California that Jaxon did not like.
Bristol Thomas meets Jaxon by chance at a bar waiting on her brother. Jaxon left before her brother shows. Jaxon learns later who Bristol is related to and devises a plan to get at the quarterback.
Time tells all- Jaxon falls for Bristol. HARD!!! Bristol finds out Jaxon’s plan to get at her brother. Jaxon has to work hard to get Bristol back.
This is a loving book. I love all the characters in this series. L. P. Dover does not disappoint with this story. I wanted to choke Jaxon throughout the story but was cheering for the couple.
Reviewer’s Note: I have read one other book in this series. I grabbed the story easily without the other books, but I know I could have gotten more from the story if I had.

New York Times and USA Today Bestselling author, L.P. Dover, is a southern belle residing in North Carolina along with her husband and two beautiful girls. Before she even began her literary journey she worked in Periodontics enjoying the wonderment of dental surgeries.
Not only does she love to write, but she loves to play tennis, go on mountain hikes, white water rafting, and you can’t forget the passion for singing. Her two number one fans expect a concert each and every night before bedtime and those songs usually consist of Christmas carols.
Aside from being a wife and mother, L.P. Dover has written countless novels including her Forever Fae series, the Second Chances series, the Gloves Off series, the Armed and Dangerous series, the Royal Shifters series, and her standalone novel, Love, Lies, and Deception. Her favorite genre to read is romantic suspense and she also loves writing it. However, if she had to choose a setting to live in it would have to be with her faeries in the Land of the Fae.
