Smart and sexy Dani Carr knows as much about football as any man--maybe more. It’s always been her dream to make a living talking about the game she loves. But Dani’s not interested in being just the usual eye-candy sideline reporter; she wants to be the first woman analyst on a pre-game show, the ultimate in exclusive boys-club jobs. And it turns out, that despite the odds, she has the talent to get her there.

Star quarterback-and heartthrob--Tyson Palmer always did things in spectacular fashion, including ruining his career after debuting as a first-round draft pick. When the head coach of the Austin Mavericks refuses to let him waste his million dollar arm, Tyson makes a Hail Mary pass at redemption and succeeds with everyone…except Dani, who appears to be using her high-profile commentator job to make a name for herself at his expense.

Dani refuses to let anyone forget about Tyson’s transgressions….and for good reason. There’s history between these two, sizzling history that dates back to their college days, and it ended in another spectacular flame-out of Tyson’s. He’s conveniently forgotten all about that episode because Dani is no longer the cute girl next door he barely remembers--she’s a bombshell with huge ratings and a long memory.

But can a woman trying to claw her way to the top and a quarterback who knows all about rock bottom make it to the Super Bowl without destroying each other in the process? And what will happen when Tyson-riding high on his career comeback-realizes he needs to make an even more important comeback with Dani?

I really enjoyed this second chance at love story.  There were so many secrets and so much deception, that you knew at some point the s***t was going to hit the fan at some point. I just couldn't put the book down until all the truths were revealed. 

I didn't get a very good impression of Tyson at the beginning. His life was spinning out of control and he's hitting rock bottom. Lucky for him, he has someone who believes in him and gives him all the tools he needs to pick himself back up. He's not the typical arrogant football player, he truly appreciates what has been offered and tries everything he can to show his appreciation. 

Tyson isn't the only one that remakes themselves in this book. Dani is not who she was in college. Tyson didn't even recognize her after they had spent so much time together. 

Like many other Janet Evanovich books I have read, I truly enjoyed this story.
