In the new Play-By-Play novel by the New York Times bestselling author of Unexpected Rush, a football player who knows how to win on the field needs a better game plan for his love life.
A defensive end for the San Francisco Sabers, Flynn Cassidy is used to being in the spotlight—he just doesn’t enjoy it. But if getting in front of the cameras will help his new restaurant succeed, he’s willing. Now if he could just meet a woman who loved him and not his fame…
After her divorce, Amelia Lawrence is thrilled to start over as head chef at Ninety-Two. It’s just the opportunity she needs to heat up her career—if only she wasn’t wildly attracted to her sexy new boss. Their chemistry might be sizzling hot, but Amelia has no intention of being burned again.
Flynn can’t get enough of Amelia, and Amelia loves every second she spends with the tough yet tender Flynn. But trust is a hard-fought battle for both. Breaking the rules of contact and surrendering to their passion was the easy part. Are they willing to risk their hearts to win at the game of love?
Burton's 12th Play-by-Play contemporary sports romance (after Unexpected Rush) is a captivating and satisfying mix of physical and emotional passions. Flynn Cassidy spends his days as a defensive end for the San Francisco Sabers and his nights at his new restaurant, Ninety-Two (named for his jersey number). He's tired of women using him to get their 15 minutes of fame and wants to fall in love with someone who loves him for himself. Amelia Lawrence, head chef at Ninety-Two, has no interest in the spotlight; she's perfectly content to turn out delicious dishes and guard her heart after a messy divorce from a man who didn't trust her and destroyed her self-confidence. The powerful chemistry between Amelia and Flynn leads to a red-hot romance, punctuated by sweet moments with Flynn's sports-minded family. But when a misunderstanding causes Flynn to question Amelia's motives in dating him, their baggage threatens their love. Burton imbues her hero and heroine with vulnerabilities that immediately endear them to readers, and the deft characterization, snappy dialogue, and sizzling love scenes will keep the pages turning. This may be Burton's best book yet.
