Review by Hibiscus

Cassie Teller is a woman who appears to live a simple life. But look beyond the surface and discover a complicated lady with very scandalous secrets as two incredibly sexy men bide for her love and everything that goes along with it.

Cassie knows what she wants. She wants Steve in her bed and a PFC football to keep her warm at night when he's not. That is, until she meets the most eligible bachelor in the Professional Football Confederacy. He runs straight into her life. And plans to stay there.

Steve has had many opportunities with Cassie. She's been his best friend with sexual benefits but never the woman on his arm. When PFC Superstar Corby Teller meets Cassie, he knows she's something special. He plans to spend his life making her the happiest woman alive. And she could be. That is, if Steve would stay out of her bed.

As I read this book I was reminded of the TV show Desperate Housewives. Everything happens so fast and is a little unbelievable at first but once you get into the book, you just go with the very fluid storyline.

Cassie struck me as the type of girl I don't mind hating. She's one of the boys. Knows about sports, the history and how to play them and loves football. She has her best friend, first lover and bed buddy no matter when or where in Steve. I believe that Steve liked having his cake and eating it too. He knew he would always have Cassie available for him all the time even if he was with another girl. It seemed as though they both looked out for only themselves and did not want anything to go anyway except their way.

Corby was a sweetheart. He fell in love at first sight with Cassie. I fell in love with him as the story went on. I felt his emotions as he cried, loved. laughed and was in pain . I kept rooting for Corby and wanted things to work out for him. Yes, I know he can have a temper and be a little demanding but he just seemed to be a big lovable teddy bear that I wanted for my very own.

I can see how this could happen in real life sports. What happens to the ex-wives? I learned a little in this story. Did I like the main characters as people? Not especially but they played the roles they were written extremely well. I loved the secondary characters. With them I got the charisma, charm and smiles I wanted.

Even if you're not a sports nut, this is a hot read that I would recommend instead of forcing yourself to sit through that game on television.
