Publisher's Summary

"No strings, no rings." That's Luke Archer's motto. As the champion quarterback for the New York Empire - not to mention a self-made billionaire - Luke has given up on serious relationships. Women only want him for one thing: the thrill of being with a superstar. And he likes it that way too. But when his best friend announces he's retiring from football to spend time with his wife and kids, Luke feels like he's missing out on something much bigger than his career.

The assistant concierge in Luke's luxury high-rise, Miranda Tate fled her family's dairy farm to come to the bright lights of New York City. She works hard to move up and sends her spare earnings home to her brother. When she and Luke meet, there's an instant sexual attraction which turns steamy quickly, but they're in completely different leagues. Could Miranda be just the woman Luke needs to win the most important game of his life?

    "QB almost tosses girl instead of football!"

    Star quarterback Luke Archer sees the handwriting on the wall after his best friend marries and announces his retirement and the handwriting becomes even clearer when he's injured during a game. Sidelined he pursues Miranda Tate, a small town girl trying to make it as a concierge in Luke's NYC's high rise apartment building.

    This book is a little more serious than I thought it was going to be. Luke is a complicated man just trying to figure out where he belongs in the world after his football career ends, and if he can find someone who loves him for the person he is and not the superstar that people see. It's interesting to see Luke and Miranda build upon the instant attraction they feel towards one another, to something deeper and real.

    This is the first audiobook from Nancy Herkness I've listened to, but it won't be the last! As a matter of fact I have to download the first book series because All Star is the second.

    I've listened to a couple of audiobooks from narrator Lauren Ezzo and I put her right in the middle range as a narrator but I feel like she's getting better and I would definitely buy a book that she narrates.

    "Light read"

    Enjoyable but nothing too deep. I learned something about being a concierge and making cheese, which was interesting.

    "Great"

    Hearing the story over again but from a different characters view point was fun and interesting... Parts of book 1 being replayed and finding out the other side of the story was a new twist..

    "Very good listen"

    I enjoyed this book very much. It had a good plot and had me hooked almost immediately. The only think keeping it from being 5 stars is that there wasn't enough relationship development between the main characters other than in bed. I have read Nancy Herkness' other books and she has done better with this part, however, this story sucked me in almost immediately; I was addicted to the story almost from page 1. Overall, I highly enjoyed the book and the narrator did a great job.

    "Getting better"

    This book is an erotic romance.

    A Ceo, an Author and a NFL star walk into a bar...cliche? Nope, they make a vow and it's a big one.

    Okay I read the first one and it was ok so I took a chance on this one and it is getting better.

    "No strings, no rings." That's Luke and he knows he is good, not only off the field but investing as well and not only has he made his own pockets deep he has helped other. When his brother whom is going through issues causes a collide with the concierge Miranda he finds himself wanting more with her and even that is not enough,

    Assistant concierge Miranda does not have time to deal with love she has to support her brother and his family they are all she has. She may not look like a dairy farmer but that is who she is, that is until she moves to the big city not she enjoys helping other, that is when he boss is not trying to sabotage her job.

    Love was not suppose to be a part of the game.

    "Great second book"

    This was as good as book 1 which was a nice change as lately I have been reading series's with a strong first book but a weak follow up. I loved the part where you had all these big strong footballers on the farm. Roll on book 3

    As this is the second book in the Wager of Hearts series by Nancy Herkness and the second book I've tried by this author.
