Ruby O'Brien, NFL publicist extraordinaire, lives her life by three simple rules:
#1 - Never date a client.
#2 - Never sleep with a client.
#3 - Never fall in love with a client.
The problem is, she never counted on Alec LeBrun.
Alec, the cocky and talented tight end of the Savannah Bootleggers, repeatedly asks Ruby for a date, and no one's more shocked than Ruby when she finally says yes. Less than twenty four hours later, however, he's engaged to someone else. Lesson learned. Two months later, Alec's single again, acting like a publicity nightmare and requiring up-close supervision. Now Ruby has to help Alec fix his bad boy reputation, even as she protects her heart.
Alec watched Ruby from afar for months, long before circumstances got him engaged to his lying ex. Now he's free to pursue the only woman he's ever truly wanted. Ruby's smart, gorgeous, and super-professional, and he wants her with a hunger he's never experienced before. Too bad Ruby thinks he's still pining for another woman. Now he has to prove her wrong. Jeopardizing their careers isn't part of the plan, but he also refuses to play by her rules—not when doing so means losing the woman he loves.
Can Alex convince Ruby that, sometimes, scoring in love means risking it all? And will Ruby accept that she's not second best, but the only woman Alec wants? For a lifetime.
Sweet, sexy, quick and easy read! Oh so good!
This is the first time I have read this author and it won’t be my last. This is the third story in the Going Deep series about the Savannah Bootleggers football team. It can be read as a standalone.
Ruby O’Brien is a publicist. She works for O’Brien PR firm, her father Phil’s company. Ruby has been exposed to and loved football all her life growing up as the daughter of a PR great. Ruby was given the job as publicist for the Savannah Bootleggers’ football team. She loves her job even though there are days it’s very trying with the antics of some of the men on the team. One in particular, Alec LeBrun. Ruby has had a crush on Alec from the first time she met him and who wouldn’t. He’s handsome, charming and he is the best at his game. The only problem is Ruby can’t get involved with any member of the organization. She would lose her job and her reputation. But sometimes the heart wants what the heart wants.
Alec LeBrun has had a tough time in life, being raised by a single mother, but with her love and support he succeeded in his dream of playing pro football. He has a reputation as a lady’s man, womanizer that recently just went through a scandal with a breakup, engagement and then breaking that engagement all within two months. Alec is private and wanted to keep this mess to himself and out of the public. He knows he has been out of control and knows he has to get it under control. He just needs Ruby. It was love at first sight for Alec. Ruby is smart, professional, gorgeous and he wants her. He has wanted her longer than she even realizes. He was after her for months to go out with him. Then one night she relents and it’s a night that neither can forget. Ruby realizes there is more to Alec then she ever realized.
I am going to leave it right there. There is a lot that goes down between Ruby and Alec and there are hurdles. There are meddling ex-girlfriends, difficult bosses, demanding father’s and a love that touches both of them. Alec has a lot to prove and he has got to make Ruby believe that his feelings are real.
This was a quick and easy read. No angst. It’s sweet, sexy and oh so good. I liked it so much, I went back and bought books one and two in the series.
