INTENDED FOR BRISTOL (Second Chances #9)

INTENDED FOR BRISTOL                            L.P. DOVER

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.

     This author is amazing how she can pull you into the story.  So much that without knowing your emotions are held hostage.  The next thing you know you are laughing one minute, pissed and then crying.
     This book is part of a series but can be read as a standalone and the characters themselves give you the backstory as the friends and foes to Jaxon Reed the place kicker for the Carolina Cougars.
     He was one scandalous player who was a known for is one
nightery only with ladies.  He had a jealous streak with his teammates, because he liked being number one and bragging about it and when others tried to take the like that’s where the jealousy came in.  Pitting team members against one another.
     Another of his team members Cooper Davis was injured and was out for the season maybe for good.  The team picked up another guy but an outsider from Texas.  Someone everyone on the team dislike more than him.  A lot more.  Ryan Delaney, a hot shot quarterback, who liked to run off at the mouth.  There was only one person in all of Carolina that knew it was all for show.
     That person was Bristol Thomas.  A hot shot in her own right at M&M Architectural Design, as an interior designer.  When people see the picture of them on her desk they think they are a couple but they’re not, far from it.  What they are is close and she is glad to have someone from home moving into town.
     So, when she is at the bar waiting for him after his first day with the team and she meets up with Jax but he never gives his name.  She gives her card when after she states her job and he says he may need a decorator.  Then he gets a call and has to step away.  From that moment on she can do nothing all but fantasies about him.  She hasn’t dated in a very long time. 
     When he returns his main friend on the team Derek McLaughlin asks if he’s alright he says no his mom’s cancer is progressing faster.  He looks around Derek ask if he’s looking for the sexy vixen who had been sitting there he nods and he tilts his head towards some tables.  Where he sees, her sitting with who else but Ryan Delaney.
     It was time to leave only on his way out he was intercepted by a chick named Sadie and a one night to remember.  Or so he might have thought. 
     This was a fun yet suspenseful story.  I give it 5 stars.  Provided by netgalley.
