Star professional quarterback Jack Carson has the worst reputation in the league. He’s arrogant and gorgeous, and if he’s not in bed with a new woman, he’s sleeping off the party in a jail cell.
But now he’s gotten in trouble too many times and needs my help to protect his career. As his publicist, I’ve hidden his dirty exploits and silenced the sexy rumors…but I missed the hottest scandal of the year.
Apparently, Jack and I are dating.
When the manwhore lies to the league and claims we’re in a committed relationship, he jeopardizes both our jobs. I can’t trust the tattooed bad boy, but now I’m stuck defending him. I have to make him seem respectable—no matter what.
But his shameful reputation isn’t fixed with a few photos of us on a date. With the league determined to expel him for bad-behavior, Jack has only one option to convince them he’s wholesome, dependable, and responsible.
Jack Carson wants to start a family.
And he’s chosen me to give him the baby.
"A threesome was fun, but it didn't impress anyone anymore. A foursome though-entertaing three lovely ladies?-that sounded just right. I was in the business of making plays and memories."
Jack, starting off got on my last nerves. It was like he wasn't even trying to have a some what decent reputation. He didn't care about no one else's feelings besides his, and having sex. Heck, he didn't even respect the women he would have sex with.
"Three under-sexed, intetionally-starved,loose-moraled women vying for the opportunity to get fucked by the Rivets quarterback? Yeah, I'd take those odds."
"I snapped my fingers and summoned the girls to my side. "We're leaving."
"It didn't matter to me which pussy sat on my cock, just so long as they realized what a goddamned privilege it was to get fucked by me."
To be honest, I can continue to quote more of Jack being like this, but I'm not going to do that to you. But as you can clearly see, Jack is an ass, at least half way into the book. He still is an ass don't get me wrong, I don't think Jack will be himself if he wasn't one, but he does change. He's not the same Jack like he was in the beginning of the book.
Now Leah, boy did I love Leah so much. She wasn't going to let Jack walk all over her, she knows what she wants out of life and she wasn't just about to throw that all the way for some guy, especially Jack Carson. Leah is Jack's PR and boy does she dislikes him a lot even though she finds him attractive. She puts up with a lot of Jack's antics, and boy are there a lot; I'm surprised at 24, she doesn't have gray hair fooling with Jack.
"And I was the one who made sunshine out of moonshine and pixies out of the disgraced starlets sneaking from his bedroom."
"Jack Carson was trouble bundled in the body of a Greek god with a flashy smile and bandit blue eyes."
Even though I like her with Jack, I still think she can do better. Good, that doesn't make much sense does it? I hated that Jack lied about being in a relationship with Leah, who he nicknamed Kiss ( I get into that later), to the league president. Do you see what I mean about caring only about himself? He doesn't care that Leah could get fired if someone found out the lied. While I do hate that he did that, this has to be one of my favorite lines:
"One kiss," I said. "And then you do as I say."
"You hold the leash, just tug on it a little and I'll come."
One of the problems I have with this book is all the food references towards Leah's skin. At first I can ignore it, but it was on every other page. After a while it made me uncomfortable, added by how Jack seems to have a small fetish, even though he states in the beginning that he always has blondes (It's from what I can tell, I don't know if he actually been with a black woman before Leah, but to me it seems like he hasn't).
Though I do love it and will recommend, saying that you need to get pass the first few chapters, you will like the book. I don't think it's for everyone. If you hate POC's being described as food, you won't like this.
He didn’t tell me who he was. He didn’t tell me why he found me. And he sure as hell didn’t tell me he was my step-brother in town to divvy up my estranged father’s will—an inheritance that includes a fabulous mansion.
But I can’t hide my feelings for him, even in a giant estate. I make Zach a deal. He can stay at the mansion with me until he deploys, then I use my trust fund to buy out his half. One wave of the checkbook and the arrogant player is out of my life forever.
Except Zach is the one man who makes the forbidden seem forgivable. He’s sexy. He’s charming.
And he’s just too HARD to resist.
HARD is a standalone, super flirty, temptingly steamy adult romance with a guaranteed happily-ever-after!
Okay now onto Shay, mmm. Man was she annoying, like really annoying. It was so hard to finish this book, because I can't deal with her complaining. Like, girl please stop you're embarrassing yourself. It seems like she keeps forgetting that Zach was entitled to the estate and the money because he was written into her fathers will. She sounded so money hungry and like a gold-digger, even she admitted it. She is, she has all this money, but she still wants more, on what she considers to be hers. She hated her dad, but wanted the money.
I really don't recommend this one. You're not going to love Shay, like at all.
