PASS INTERFERENCE                         DESIREE HOLT

No Rules. No Limits.
Party girl Tyler Gillette has just one rule: no football players. As the daughter of the owner of the San Antonio Hawks, she grew up in the shadow of the sport and her father’s enormous wealth. She was even named Tyler because he wanted a boy. Life couldn’t have drawn up a better play for turning her into a wild child—until that same life is threatened by someone from the past . . .

Former Hawks running back Rafe Ortiz has a few rules of his own. First, no weaknesses. Second, no babysitting spoiled football princesses. But his new career as a bodyguard means he’s responsible for protecting the beautiful Tyler Gillette from her mysterious stalker. But keeping his hands off her might be harder than keeping her safe ...

     When a tragedy changes your life and the dynamics of your household it can also change the course of your future.  If you have no one to guide you or and adult to point that out especially.  This is exactly what happened to Tyler Gillette.
     You see Tyler’s mother passed away when she was ten at the time.  Even though she had lost her mom it felt like she lost both parents.  You see her dad dealt with his grief by throwing himself into everything Hawk’s related.  His previous football team came first above all else but especially above her.
     She tried everything to get him to notice her and to please him.  To show him she was and could be as good as a son he always wanted instead of her, a girl.  Nothing, not a damn thing worked.  He wasn’t happy with her, angry with her, nope he was nothing he just ignored her.  In fact he sent her away with money and told her to keep busy.  The fact that she had, his way of thinking, insulted him she being a daughter after all and not a son made it worse.  Giving her a boy’s name didn’t change a thing.
     So naturally she went to the deeper end of the pool to get a response which for sure finally got at least an eyebrow raised.  She started outrageous behavior and kept upping her game until he was tearing his hair out.  All because she just wanted him to love her and notice her.
     All this at what cost?  Her rep, friends, and a real relationship.  Although the only relationship she truly wanted and fantasied about she knew would never happen.  That would be with Rafe Ortiz.  He was a former Hawks player and who was currently head of her father’s security detail at the stadium.
     The first time she saw Rafe he had just been signed and she was in college all of twenty he was twenty-two.  I despised all things Hawks, football, and football players.  But my heart, body and eyes knew what it wanted.  It wanted Rafe Ortiz.
     The first time Rafe ever saw Tyler he was a lost cause.  He knew if he ever tried it would be a career ender for sure.  Not to mention she was too young.  So the discipline he learned on the field he used off the field especially when he was around her.  All the more when they made eye contact because he saw that she wanted him too.  He could see that she was one hot mess. 
      Then one night he’s playing cards with his buddies and a call comes in and he sees it’s her.  He’s wondering how she got his number.  After some bantering he hears the fear in her voice and he responds to that.  He ask where she is and she names the dive bar and he has a snide remark they have a heated word until he hears someone banging on the door to the bathroom and calling her foul names.  He tells her to lock it he’s on his way.
     A few days go by she calls him again out to her house this time they banter again she tells him forget it when he continues to insult her about her rep.  Finally he hears the real fear and agrees to show up.  Again the banter—insults—make up to which he fact finds she has a stalker.  Now that’s a game changer for him.  She sees she needs a change too…
     I enjoyed this book.  It had a lot of action with the whole stalker situation but the bantering and love story was so good also it really had you from the beginning. I give this 5 stars.
