Publisher's Summary

"No strings, no rings." That's Luke Archer's motto. As the champion quarterback for the New York Empire - not to mention a self-made billionaire - Luke has given up on serious relationships. Women only want him for one thing: the thrill of being with a superstar. And he likes it that way too. But when his best friend announces he's retiring from football to spend time with his wife and kids, Luke feels like he's missing out on something much bigger than his career.
The assistant concierge in Luke's luxury high-rise, Miranda Tate fled her family's dairy farm to come to the bright lights of New York City. She works hard to move up and sends her spare earnings home to her brother. When she and Luke meet, there's an instant sexual attraction which turns steamy quickly, but they're in completely different leagues. Could Miranda be just the woman Luke needs to win the most important game of his life?

Entertaining Light Romance

The 2nd book of the Wagers series was an entertaining, light romance, which could be enjoyed without reading the 1st book.

NFL football player Luke was a refreshing change - a rich, good-looking man who wasn't dominating. selfish or violent. No, Luke was thoughtful, funny, hard-working and looking for an equal life partner, rather than a brainless sex slave.

Likewise, Miranda was a smart, ambitious professional who enjoyed helping people as a concierge. Miranda wasn't looking for man to "save or rescue" her. She didn't expect Luke to fix her problems, even when her slimy boss was trying to sabotage her career.

The romance between Luke and Miranda was slow and realistic; the supporting characters added depth and humor to the plot. There were explicit sex scenes but nothing violent or degrading.

Really good

I loved the characters and the story line. I was cheering the whole time for Luke and Miranda. And as cliche as it sounds money cannot buy you happiness or love. Good read highly recommended😊

A feel good read!

I really enjoyed this audio book. id5read the 1st in the series a while back and then found this on Kindle Unlimited with audio included.

Luke and Miranda's story is sweet and not laden with silly miscommunication and misinterpretations. They have moments of confusion but for the most part they resolve the issues quickly by asking questions to clarify. The main misunderstanding happens at the end but Luke can take the blame for that!

The family vibe with Miranda's family balance out the angst with Luke and Trevor.

Really, this is an enjoyable read.

Throwing away love isn't a quarterbacks best tactic

Pleasant enjoyable read. Not a mind bending story line but interesting enough to keep the readers interest. Written at a good pace, without any side padding, was one of the books best features.
