Publisher's summary

Reiner Strickland had led his team to three national championships, and playing a knight in shining armor was all in a day's work for the NFL star quarterback. Only his damsel in distress had no idea who he was, and it threw him off his game. He was the face of his organization and was used to everyone recognizing him. Her innocence, charm, and beauty captivated him. It wasn't until after they parted ways that he realized that he never got her number or even her last name. 

Jada Dalton had no idea who her sexy knight in shining armor was, but knew that she'd probably never see him again. She was focused on building her business and didn't have time for love. Just because she was determined to become a successful businesswoman, it didn't mean she couldn't dream about her sexy-as-sin rescuer.

Another chance meeting brings the two together and this time, Jada discovers who exactly Reiner is. She learns quickly what goes along with dating a football legend and is not sure she can handle it. Reiner refuses to let Jada go. He'll have to dig deep and call out the most important play of his life to ensure that Jada Dalton remains on his team.

Contains mature themes.

Nice story

I liked the interracial relationship and the characters but I was having a hard time with the narrator. I think she should just read and not try to give the male characters a voice.

short and sweet

I really enjoyed this story. I'm really glad that his mother explained herself because I was not here for it. This is a great listen so go ahead and enjoy.

Sweet

I normally don't do short books and made this an exception. The characters were believable plus the story was good.

Loved this book so much!

I loved this book so much! I'll probably listen to it again soon. I love it when both characters are open and honest about their feelings with each other. They didn't let outside drama into their relationship. This is an easy listen and well-written. If you're looking for a sweet and spicy book with a little drama, you'll definitely love this book. Highly recommend!

I love interracial stories

I love interracial stories especially BWWM, but not this one. I'm glad more AA authors are sending there books to Tantor for audible books. So I won't complain...much

Liked it

I would say I liked this one but wasn’t blown away by it. I don’t usually love when IR writers make race a part of the plot. While I understood the hero’s mothers reason to being concerned about their relationship, it just took me out of the story to read about an IR couple where race was mentioned so heavily. Kudos to the author for having an audiobook since that’s my preferred method of reading! I’ll read audiobooks of any genre but I love when I can get the chance to read an AA, MC or IR romance instead of the mainstream white romances.

I’ll probably give this author another book or two. The writing was good. Maybe it was just these characters I didn’t connect to.
