As a former pro football star, I’m used to playing the field. After injuries cut my NFL career short, my second act as a broadcaster ended on live television when a hot mic picked up a little verbal . . . indiscretion. But this latest publicity stunt might just land me back on top—much to the chagrin of Catarina Everhart, the prissy, beautiful journalist who’s been assigned to date a bad boy (i.e., me) and write about it. Catarina swears I’ll never touch her, let alone kiss those full lips of hers. Based on our chemistry, I’m not buying it. . . .
Catarina: Barrett Fox seems to be doing everything in his power to make me hate him. The cocky egomaniac is infamous for his bad behavior, and now, thanks to my boss’s harebrained schemes, he’s apparently my problem. As one fake date leads to another, I start to see a different side of Barrett. He’s close with his family. He does volunteer work. And, okay, he kisses like a dream. Am I really dating Barrett Fox? Or is he playing me? Because suddenly I’m risking my reputation—and my heart.
|The book opens up with Barrett meeting with his ex and telling her a story. The story is of him and how he has blown it with a reporter, journalist Catrina Everheart. She is doing an article on him the man who is an ex-pro football player and most recently a sideline reporter who was caught on screen verbally abusing a female ref over a bad call, his opinion. Of course, he is let go and now she wants to do an article about him. He wants to date her and she says no. Well, the too hardheads while working on the story fall for one another and when the story comes out there are things in the story that he told her that she said would not be in the article. When she realizes what happens she goes to the person who did it and then to him. It is when she was talking to him and the words he told her that deflated any hope of love, or anything she had towards him, and it was not until she got into her car that he realized what he said and what he did. The damage was done. Now weeks later he finishes his story to his ex and she wishes him the best and the story continues with him trying to figure out what to do to get her back. This is a very good story about two people healing from other broken relationships and thinking that this is the one. Read this book to see what happens.
