Journalist Samantha Jameson always wanted to be one of the boys, but Ryan Terell won't let her join the club. Fresh from the battlegrounds of Iraq, reporting on a bunch of overgrown boys playing pro football is just the change of scenery she needs. If trying to be taken seriously in the world of sports writing wasn't hard enough, Ryan, her college crush, is only making it harder. As a tight-end for the team she's covering, he is strictly off limits.
Ryan Terell is a playmaker on and off the field, but when Samantha uncovers his moves, he throws out the playbook. Just as he claims his sweetest victory, Samantha's investigation into a steroid scandal involving his team forces him to call a time-out to their off the record trysts. But then a life threatening injury on the field will force them both to decide just how far they'll go to win the game.

I can see why this story won a romance contest - I've never read or heard a story combining pro football, journalism, fashion modeling, Irish-American families and more - in one story. And seamlessly too :-).
Great humor and great sex too! (My vibrator almost burnt out from overuse ;-)) All the characters were fleshed out nicely - great interplay between Ryan and his friend, Jake; Samantha and supermodel friend, Hannah. This could easily have been made into a longer story but it still worked out nicely just as it is.
The narrator must be taking continuous audiobook lessons or is just getting better as she does more audio stories.
Loved it from start to finish! :-)

A lovely story. Loved the elements of family blended in with the romance. More could have been developed on Samantha's emotions from being kidnapped while overseas, but it still was a great story :-)
