Publisher's Summary

Life was simple...until an intriguing proposition came my way.

When the IT tycoon made me that offer, I thought it was a good deal...until it wasn’t.

A perfect balance of beauty and intelligence, but the fire inside her refused to be tamed.

The only problem? I was paid by her old man to babysit her. She's off-limits. Period. Do I care? Hell no.

Let's just hope she'll forgive me when she finds out the truth.

This is a steamy, full-length novel with a happily ever after. No cliff-hangers. No cheating.

Cassie and Ivan

Firstly I have to admit that I'm English and I never watch sports so a story about American Football can sometimes be disappointing. Not this one, Harper Lauren's story concentrates more on the people than the sport thankfully. Although obviously sport is included sometimes.

Cassie I thought was going to be unbearable, and in the beginning she was, she's so spoiled and entitled, she has never had to work a day in her life and when her rich and powerful father (an IT Millionaire) sent her to the country to live with his sister and work on the family farm to learn the value of hard work and money I didn't hold out much hope for her.

Ivan on the other had is an injured football star for the Winfield Warriors who has gone home to his home town to recover from an injury on the field. His father has recently died leaving his mother with lots of debts. So when Cassie's father offers to pay him his football salary to "keep an eye" on his daughter he accepts the deal. He starts doing light work at the farm and takes Cassie under his wing and tries to help her adjust.

At first these two do nothing but spar and they are so very different you can't really see them coming together, but slowly as time passes they become friends and Cassie shares with Ivan her dram of becoming a fashion designer.. Ivan encourages her and their friendship deepens.

I'm not going to tell you the plotline word for word, what would be the point? What i will say is that this story, drew me in, it was well written with excellent characterisation and great chemistry and I for one thoroughly enjoyed seeing how these two opposites came together.

The book was beautifully performed by Ainslie Caswell, she did a wonderful job of bringing every single character to life making listening to this book a joy.

I was given this book as a gift and am voluntarily writing my review.

Ivan and Cassie are sweet

This is my first Harper Lauren book and it was super cute. I say cute because I knew where it was going when it started. That's not to say there isn't anything good in this book. The banter, the fun, the sexy times between Ivan and Cassie are great. I've just read this plot before. That's all.

But Harper Lauren gives us two people who are trying to find their footing after having the rugged ripped out from under them.

Cassie is used to getting her way. She's used to spending money that isn't hers. She's used to the city. So, when her high profile dad sends her to his hometown to learn about money and work ethic, she's at a total loss. She's twenty-five and completely cut-off from her finances. Instead of being homeless, she goes to live with her aunt at her dad's "suggestion".

Ivan is home because of an injury. He's staying with him mother to help around the house and to help with the bills. But when an opportunity is practically thrown in his lap, how could he refuse?

He can't. Obviously.

Grab Hard Game by Harper Lauren to find out what happens with Cassie and Ivan. I'm excited to see who the next book will be about because this one gave me zero clue!

Good job

Any additional comments?

I love the characters and how their relationship develops. This is a steamy, cool, feisty, fun that is truly hard to put down. My only objection is that I wish someone had given Gary a good throat punch...I like to imagine it did happen.This is surely worth knowing. I got this book as and am willingly leaving an honest review.

it will be interesting

I was so deep into this book that I could not put it down. Found that a range of emotions come to visit throughout the book as more.They truly are meant for each other and only time will tell if they get there...it offered up a whole lot more than I had bargained for from what I originally thought was just going to be a quick and easy sports romance. Well done!

Good Story

I enjoyed the story and it was well written. I felt the character Cassie was a coward when it came to Ivan and almost ruined a great relationship. If it wasn’t for Ivan’s love for Cassie this relationship would never have come to fruition. The reader did an excellent job of keeping the character of each person separate and when that character spoke you knew who was speaking before the he or she said. This was a fun audiobook and I throughly enjoyed the story. The problem with this book in audio is some of the scenes are not meant to be over heard with out some embarrassment.

Any additional comments?

The first few chapters were not may favorite but once I got past them the book gets a lot better. I really like Harper Lauren and was expecting a little more from her I think. There were some interesting and funny parts but it was a little on the slow side for me.

Another good book to listen!

I've read so many sports romance lately that I thought I had this one pegged but the author really surprised me. Hot, funny, and hard to put down once you start listening it. An author ended the book with a very good ending.
