Kendall Tracy, General Manager of the San Francisco Miners, is not one for rash decisions or one-night stands. But when she finds herself alone in a hotel room with a heart-stoppingly gorgeous man-who looks oddly familiar-Kendall throws her own rules out the window…and they blow right back into her face.

Drew McCoy should look familiar, he’s a star player for her team’s archrival the Seattle Sharks. Which would basically make Drew and Kendall the Romeo and Juliet of professional football…well, without all the dying. Not that it’s an issue. They agree to pretend their encounter never happened. Nothing good can come from it anyway, right? Drew’s not so sure.

Kendall may be all wrong, but he can’t stop thinking about her and he finds that some risks are worth taking. Because the stakes are always highest when you’re playing for keeps.

EXCERPT ~
Drew trudged into his bedroom after 1 AM. He made sure the guys were settled in guest rooms before hitting the sack himself. He should have been in bed hours ago. The storm raged on, though, and he couldn’t send Derrick and Seth out in it. Luckily, he had plenty of room for the guys at his place until things calmed down a bit outside. He pulled on clean, dry pajama pants and a T-shirt. His teammates gave him shit on the regular for buying a 5800-square foot, five bedroom family house as a single guy. Whatever. They seemed to end up at his place a lot. He liked doing the yard work, and there was somewhere for his parents, three siblings, their spouses and kids to stay when they visited. Truthfully, he bought the house because he could see his future wife and kids here. He’d like to think he could be lucky (and persuasive) enough to end up with a woman like Kendall. She was beautiful, but that wasn’t the most attractive thing about her. She was sophisticated, intelligent, interesting, had a sense of humor, and she loved books. He also had to admit he wanted to spend some time in her bed; she pulled him toward her like metal to a magnet. Unfortunately, it didn’t look like he’d be spending any time at all with the lovely Ms. Tracy anytime soon. He wanted someone he could spend the rest of his life getting to know, just like his parents. His mom and dad had been happily married for thirty-five years now.  His mom had dinner on the table every night at six. Her whole world was his dad and Drew’s brother and sisters, and he wanted the same thing: a woman who wanted to make his house a home. If that made him old-fashioned, so be it. He loved the idea of coming home every day to a beaming woman, dinner on the table, and a few little rugrats to liven the place up.
