A steamy, full-length, standalone romance with a guaranteed HEA from Bestselling author J.H. Croix! If you like smoking hot sports romance with alpha men and the women who challenge them, you’ll love this series! Playing ball is easy. Falling in love is complicated. A famous Brit footballer off his game. A young doctor who wants nothing to do with a drool-worthy, cocky player. She’s his doctor, the last woman he should fall for. But…he’s never been one to play by the rules. Liam Reed is just a little bit cranky. On the heels of a crushing loss for his team back in Britain, he finds himself traded to a US team. A potentially career ending injury lands him in the hospital where he takes one look at Olivia Bowen, the renowned surgeon assigned to make him good as new, and decides he must have her. Olivia Bowen is an overachiever of the worst sort. Straight-A student – check. Bordering on crazy anxious because of always trying to be perfect at everything – check. Well, perfect at anything to do with being a doctor and an utter disaster at most everything else. Internationally renowned for his play and adored for his looks and casual British swagger, Olivia takes one look at Liam and almost goes running. The last thing she needs is the pressure to get him back on the field with nothing less than a perfect recovery. Even worse, she can hardly be in the same room with him because her body goes haywire. Liam is powerfully drawn to the challenge Olivia offers, yet neither of them is prepared for their hearts getting in on the action. *All novels in this series are full-length standalone novels with an HEA.
Nice enough sports romance with well developed characters. Still there was a little depth in the story missing for me but I assume that is just me and many others will enjoy it just as it is
