Publisher's Summary

Number 12, Johnny Decker. Star quarterback for the Boston Tomcats. Two-time Super Bowl MVP.... A decade ago. Nickname: Decker the Panty Wrecker.

I get tackled for a living by men who are built like rhinos. I could take the wings off a fly with a football from 30 yards away. (I wouldn’t, but I could.) Being a veteran quarterback means I’m a mentally alert, a fine-tuned athletic machine who can make split-second decisions.

It’s my job to anticipate what’s going to happen next and adapt. But I couldn’t have anticipated the death of our beloved team owner.

His estranged daughter, Hannah Strong, is a finance nerd from New York. She knows less than nothing about football. Know what she didn’t anticipate? Inheriting the Boston Tomcats.

She’s stubborn, uptight, infuriating, and wrong about absolutely everything - from pizza to how to run my team. And I don’t want to talk about how good she looks in a skirt. Or daydream about how good she’d look out of it. Really, I don’t.

I’m not Decker the Panty Wrecker anymore - I’ve changed.

I can’t stop arguing with her. Or thinking about her.

I thought I had a winning play. But Hannah Strong changed everything.

Note, this is a duet narration! Performed by Connor Crais and Mackenzie Cartwright, featuring Ava Lucas and Ron Butler.

Fantastic collaboration!

Kayley Loring has long been a one-click author for me and teaming up with Connor Crais to write this book was brilliant move. Johnny Decker, the NFL quarterback with probably only one season left before retiring, is knocked on his ass by the beautiful daughter of the late team owner. Hanna Strong inherits the team when her estranged father suddenly passes away and unexpectedly leaves the team to her, and leaves the players and fans wondering if she will carry on his legacy in a sport that she resents and knows virtually nothing about.

Connor Crais obviously brings the football knowledge to the story, but you can also clearly hear his “voice” coming through in Decker’s chapters. Kayley Loring has long written some of the best text conversations I have ever read in many of her books, and Decker: Changing the Play is no exception. The back and forth banter between Hannah and Johnny is laugh out loud funny and incredibly charming. This book is hot and steamy with plenty of heart and a perfect HEA that will leave you cheering and with a smile on your face.

Connor Crais narrates this book in duet with Mackenzie Cartwright and they are absolute perfection. You can hear the genuine connection with the story in Connor’s heartfelt performance (the singing is awesome too!) and Mackenzie’s comedic timing is impeccable. Throw in two more pros like Ron Butler and Ava Lucas as supporting characters and this audiobook is pure gold. This is a 5-star listen and will be one that I will enjoy again and again.

I couldn’t turn this one off!

I Love this story! It gave me the chills and I laughed, chuckled and smiled all throughout! I adored all the witty banter between Hannah and Decker! It really kept my ears tuned in so I wouldn’t miss a thing! All the way to the end I couldn’t stop listening and those epilogues?? Just precious! This one is going on my favorites list to be enjoyed over and over!

I did listen to this on audio. The narrating team did an outstanding job. Connor Crais is quickly becoming a new favorite narrator. Kayley Loring and Connor Crais did a wonderful job with this story and I hope for more from them.

What a Win

This book is the first collaboration between the extremely talented Kayley Loring and now we know equally talented Connor Crais. I loved that they teamed up to write a book that gave us a great perspective of both our heroin and hero from the female and male point of view. This is a little different from our funny lady's normal. This book has sadness and more feelings from our characters and some really tough decisions that require putting your big girl panties on even if Decker the panty wrecker will indeed wreck them. I loved how we start with sadness and end with happiness and we get to feel everything in between.

Hannah is a strong woman although in the game of football she is lost. When she is left with a team that meant more to her dad than she thought she did she has resentment towards not only the team but the game. Now what to do with all this that she has been left with.

Johnny has a reputation with the ladies but when a certain lady owns him he suddenly wants to prove himself worthy of more than playing for her. He wants to not only win games but to win her heart.

This is a great story and even though it is centered around football, it is a love story and a story of healing with some football terms thrown in. I loved this book and give it more than 5 stars and a touchdown for these two for their first book of writing together. Fantastic job.

Narration for this book was off the charts. Not only did Connor Crais co write this book but he also narrated it along with Mackenzie Cartwright. These two are perfect together and I loved listening all the way through. We also get Ava Lucas and Ron Butler as an added bonus. This was great.

Narration You Don’t Want to Miss!

Overall, this was a great story. I did feel like there were a couple holes/things that didn’t make sense to me. Without going into too much detail or giving away any spoilers, I will say this…every story has that dilemma that arises, that pivotal moment (or set of moments) where everything seems to fall apart, where things go south before they are made right again. I just didn’t buy the pivotal moment in this story as a feasible one…these main characters were fairly mature (relatively speaking…she did and said a few really stupid things and he liked to mention his “past” man-whoring ways a little too much) based on prior circumstances to have responded the way they did…it wasn’t believable to me. No true communication/explanation occurred and neither even tried to put themselves in the others’ shoes. Still they had these weird, sporadic, half-baked text messages going on after “the thing”. This made the story feel forced/underdeveloped. Also, fairly early on, we find Decker intervening to make sure Hannah is safe when she’s checking out possible neighborhoods to rent in…he doesn’t want her scouting rentals alone at night in certain areas. They end up going to dinner and he promises to help her find a place. Then the ball is dropped (pun intended) and Hannah later casually mentions she found a house to rent. This is a small thing in the grand scheme but it bugs me. All that said, I am a huge football fanatic, love sports romances, and found this couple to have good banter and chemistry. Exceptional narration enhances the read. Connor Crais…yum…stealing all our hearts with his writing ability and his voice acting skills!! And the entire narration cast was just fantastic! 5 star narration and 4 stars overall. I do recommend.

Sooo cute

I loved this story so much that I bought the audio even though I had already read the book. The audio was fantastic.

100% will listen again and again. I’ve found my new comfort listen.

Fun and sexy hit! 5+++ stars

Decker is one of those stories that makes you feel good from start to finish. I’ve laughed, sighed, teared up and dang near put my head inside the freezer to cool off. I’m so glad I took a chance and gave this a listen.

The narrators are pros with perfect comedic timing. I really enjoyed the duet style and the additions of the two other narrators for some of the supporting characters only enhanced the audio experience. WELL DONE.

Great start to a new series and I’m looking forward to book 2.

Loved all things Decker and Hannah!!

Decker by Kayley Loring and Connor Crais was a laugh-out-loud good time and scored a winning touch down in my heart! Sports romances are one of my favorite tropes, so I was instantly intrigued and hooked on Hannah and Decker's story. Kayley and Connor's writing flowed seamlessly, and I loved the whole concept of a hunky quarterback, and a new sassy female team owner!

Connor Crais and Mackenzie Cartwright narrate this audio in duet featuring Ava Lucas and Ron Butner. Connor Crais brought his "A game" to his performance absolutely embodying all things Johnny Decker. In his narration he conveyed all of Decker's dedication to the game of football, his love for family, and his devotion to Hannah! Connor's tone in his performance showcased this charismatic confidence that you couldn't help but swoon over. Mackenzie Cartwright was Hannah Strong perfection! Mackenzie portrayed all of Hannah's doubts, desires, and determination to thrive in her new job brilliantly. Mackenzie also made me giggle quite a bit, especially with that epic burp!
Ava Lucas and Ron Butler were the icing on the cake voicing several supporting characters that gave this audio even more life!

Overall, I loved this audio and story! If you love a football romance with a hot veteran quarterback in search of one more Super Bowl title, a fierce new NFL team owner adamant to learn the game, fun loving teammates, supportive best friends, steamy locker room times, away game road trips, hilarious football terminology, a cameo from Billy O'Sullivan, and a championship worthy HEA that will make you cheer, then you will love Hannah and Decker's story! Congrats Kayley and Connor you have a new Boston Tomcats fan, and I can't wait for more in this series!

Enjoyed

Was so nice to listen to Connor’s first debut story. It was a nice way to spend my afternoon. Also learned a little more about football. Looking forward to his next co write with Kayley. They are both extremely talented.

So, so good.

I absolutely adore Kayley Loring and have read/listened to everything she has ever written. She does not fail to bring everything to the table, and then some!!! This was co-written with Narrator (and now romance author) Connor Crais. Oh my word this book was everything. Connor Crais and Mackenzie Cartwright narrated this book to absolute perfection!! The story was great and so much fun. It was so funny, and I mean laugh out loud funny, and I need to mention the amount of spice and hotness they brought to this story, it was off the scale!! This book was perfection. Kayley and Connor are a force to be reckoned with. I can’t wait for more to come from this amazing duo.

Fabulous!!

Great story, filled with wit, humour and warmth. Hannah and Decker are a wonderful pairing and the whole premise from start to finish is a delight. Hannah is a buttoned up, fish out of water beauty who is thrown into the deep end of the pool after inheriting her father's football (of the US variety 🤣) team. The banter that grows between these two is so much fun, as is the growing relationship between them. And these narrators! Ava Lucas, Ron Butler, Mackenzie Cartwright and Connor Crais are simply outstanding throughout. Their skill at bringing all of the characters to life is joyful. I have loved every minute!! 💖💖💖💖💖

This was so wonderful to listen to and escape my troubles

Thank you so much Kayley and Connor. I loved this book in so many ways. The narration was perfect and made the story so alive. Keep doing the duet style narrative….. I will always pick it over the standard badly narrated male parts delivered by female voices it just makes me cringe.

I love ice hockey but now I might really annoy my husband and watch American football as well.

Thanks for making my days amazing

Decker is THE panty wrecker!

Decker is the man, the myth, the legend. Boston’s hottest quarterback with a reputation of leaving a leaving wrecked panties in his wake. In truth, the only balls in his life getting any action are the ones he plays with on the field.

Enter Hannah, the beautiful new face at work. She’s his new boss and she’s got him frustrated as hell as he struggles to help her learn a business she has zero knowledge of. She thinks it’s all about the numbers, he knows it’s all about the people, and in the end, it’s all about the playing.

Decker is a lovable, sensitive soul who’s reputation, whilst deserved in the past, is not who he is today.
Hannah is misunderstood, and misunderstanding of her life and with Decker’s guidance and answers she didn’t know she was looking for, she becomes the most savvy, football team owner. Almost too savvy.

This is fun, so much fun to read/listen too. Kayley Loring and Connor Crais have delivered an awesome escape. I read this first & then eagerly waited for the audio, which did not disappoint.

Johnny and Hannah will have you cheering them on, but you’ll also enjoy meeting all the other fabulous people in their lives.

♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️

Great narration

I had read this book previously and loved it so I preordered the audiobook. The narrators did a great job and I enjoyed the duet narration. I have heard these narrators on many other books, Mackenzie Cartwright is just so talented and Connor Crais never disappoints. Ava Lucas and Ron Butler were great too with their smaller parts.

I pretty much know nothing about American football but I was still able to follow the story easily and learnt a thing or two. I am a big Kayley Loring fan and enjoy all of her books and with the addition of Connor Crias to the writing, I think it gives things a different edge. They make a great team and I can’t wait to see what is next.
