Publisher's Summary

NBA star Chase Holbrook's reputation with women is as legendary as his court stats. But his best scores have always come when he's focused on his jump shot, not on the ladies. With a teammate putting up close competition for the offensive record, Chase needs to prove that he was worth every penny of his high-dollar trade. To be the top-scoring player, Chase accepts a team bet to steer clear of women. Shouldn't be a problem for ultra-competitive Chase - especially when he learns it's the annoyingly cute team mascot who's tasked with monitoring his every move.

Team mascot Willow "Bolt" Bend has always been one of the guys. So it's no surprise when she's asked to help ensure the integrity of the bet. Willow doesn't want to get involved, but her hesitation is sidelined by her desire to learn if Chase is as shallow as she thinks. With a sick cousin who's eager to meet him, Willow wants to know if a good person is hiding inside the notorious playboy. All she has to do is not take her eyes off the gorgeous man mountain and cry foul if he breaks his celibacy - easy, right?

The perky cheerleader has always gotten under Chase's skin, but with the celi-bet well underway, Willow's starting to get to Chase in ways no one expected. As the spark between them begins to ignite, the bet keeping them apart may just be the thing that pulls them together.

Absolutely Loved it! Cried a little, laughed alot!

Leslie North delivers everything in this humourous, heart-felt, tear forming, feel-good, sports-based romance. Be prepared to giggle and cry but mostly relish NBA star Chase Holbrook and mascot Willow Bends wonderful romance. While this is a stand alone story, I am completely inspired to listening to the rest of the series.

Rebecca Roberts delivers the kind of narration that sets the story to life. She picks up the subtle nuances of the various characters. In fact, it is more than a narration, it is a performance worthy of the story.

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

I laughed... I cried...

I loved the story and the depth shown in the characters. Chase was far more complex than he seemed at first.

I liked that the relationship was slow to build, no instr-love here, it makes it much more 'real world' for me.

The overall story is simple and easy to follow but smaller elements are woven int hat create more depth and keep the story interesting.

The narration has great character voices and a very natural delivery. I could tell who was speaking from the voice. The tone, pacing and phrasing worked well and emotion was conveyed well.

This book was supplied free by the author/narrator/publisher and I voluntarily wrote this honest review.

Great Romance

Leslie North never ceases to amaze me with her unique and amazing stories! I really enjoyed listening to this audiobook. I loved the characters. They are such great people with caring hearts.

The narration brought the story to life. Rebbeca Roberts did a great job.

Willow was such a fun character. I couldn't help but laugh at some of her behavior! Chase accepted a bet to stay clear from women and Willow was tasked to monitoring him.

The story is interesting and kept me entertained all the way to the HEA conclusion. You really can't go wrong with Leslie's books. They are all well written and unique.

Fun Book, Better Listen!

I so enjoy reading and listening to books by Leslie North. This book performed by Rebecca Roberts was great! I loved how she performed it. Having read the story before listening to it, I was able to visualize so much more! I thought the premise of the "cell-bet" was cute and fun. My review is not a synopsis of the book, but rather my opinion of it. I was voluntarily provided with this review copy audiobook at no cost by the author, publisher, and/or narrator. I love how the author developed the characters in this book and gave them kind hearts instead of superficial personalities.

Love this sports romance

What a fun listen this book is! Leslie North always provides complete entertainment with well developed characters. This sports romance is the second in the series, but can stand alone. A bet between players...who can remain celibate for the rest of the season results in Chase Holbrook's game of his life. Willow Bend, the team's mascot and thorn in Chase's side is set to be his keeper to make sure he is true to his word. What Chase doesn't know is the real Willow. This story brings true love to the forefront, selflessness, self awareness and becoming who you truly want to be. This couple, along with the incredible supporting cast of Dylan(love this boy), Estelle(what a hoot!) and Tarek(hope he gets his own story) will inspire you and bring a smile to our face.

Rebecca Roberts is the narrator. It's the first book I have heard by her and really enjoyed her performance. Her pace was perfect and her voices were easily distinguishable. Very enjoyable.
