She’s daddy’s little girl…or she would have been, had he known she existed. Cassie Wainwright thought her father—head coach of the Santa Fe Bobcats—ignored her purposefully. Come to find out, he had no clue she’d ever been born.

Now Cassie is determined to meet the man who’s always been missing from her life. Her mother warns her, being the long-lost daughter of a well-known NFL coach won’t be easy, but Cassie’s determined to stick it out. And before her life turns upside down, she wants one more night of fun.

Starting quarterback for the Santa Fe Bobcats, Trey Owens is tired of being in the limelight. Lucky for him, the beautiful brunette he meets at the club isn’t a local. She has no idea who he is…and she’s down to party.

Tomorrow, Cassie will think about her father. Tomorrow, she’ll think about her future. But tonight is for herself and the hottie she found on dance floor. It’s a matchup made in heaven—if only for a night…



I received this book via Netgalley for an honest review.

If you’ve been following my reviews, you must know by now that I’m a huge fan of sports romance novels. Sometimes these books disappoint me, but this time around it did not. 🙂

I’ve never read a book by Jeanette Murray and yet this one isn’t her first one, but now I know I’ve been missing out on something.

It took me a chapter or two to truly be sucked in the story. I think it’s because I’ve been reading many books using the first person narration, so getting used to third person narration again took me a few pages, but I don’t think it’s the author’s fault or her book.

The writing style is basic, simple and perfect for this type of story. No need to use some flourish when the story is pretty straight-forward, very much contemporary and just sweet with some sexy scenes quite tame.

I enjoyed every characters, loved the dialogues and I wanted to hug the main characters for their grown-up attitude. Let me explain.

Usually in romance novels we often find adult characters behaving like teenagers when it comes to drama. It’s always entertaining, don’t get me wrong, but it’s very nice to read about real grown-up characters from time to time and I particularly enjoyed the way the author juxtaposed Cassie’s adulthood and the way she’s forced into hiding things to her father like a teen would do. It’s well-done and in a way you can perfectly understand her even though I wanted to slap her a couple of times, which means that I was truly into the story.

Trey is a perfect male character. I loved his POV, the way he’s really down to earth, caring and so sweet! I melted pretty soon. 🙂

In this book there isn’t that much drama when I think about it, but it was a very nice read, something that took me out of my book funk and I look forward to reading the next installment with another set of characters.

What do you think of Trey? Who is reading, or finished reading, or is planning on reading this book? What do you think about it?
