Sexiest soccer player. Top-scoring athlete. America's favorite party boy.
Jace Connor has received many titles in his career, and enjoyed them all. Although, he's working on changing the last one. There's more to Jace than the media portrays—a man who loves his tight-knit family, being his nieces' and nephews' favorite uncle.
The reformed party-boy is now steering clear of anything that could blemish his reputation. But when the coach's gorgeous daughter is hired on as the team's new sponsorship manager, keeping on the straight and narrow becomes impossible. Her warm and bubbly personality coupled with her sexy-as-sin body makes her irresistible.
Brooke Derringer wants to prove to everyone that she wasn't hired due to her personal connections. She's determined to keep things strictly business and focus only on work. She learned the hard way that the office isn't the place to make friends.
But a certain smoking hot--and bossy--soccer player is determined to change her mind. Surprising her with clandestine dinners and late-night gym sessions, Jace is inescapable.
For the first time in his life, Jace wants more. He wants the whole package…with the one woman he can't have. But Jace doesn't let that deter him. He's determined to fight for her. And he will.
Customer ReviewsSee All
This is the 5th book the the Connor series. This was Jace and Brooke’s story. Jace is the soccer star of the Connors and Brooke was just hired by his team to head up sponsors for the team. It was love at first site. Their story is so sweet. Very steamy with a HEA. I received an ARC for an honest review. I’d give this 10 stars. So Romantic. It can be read alone but I encourage everyone to read the entire series
Sweet and romantic
I’ve been waiting for Jace’s book since Anything for You and it did not disappoint. As much as I love all the Connors, Jace is my favorite. I loved the relationship between Jace and Brooke. Layla did a great job building it up so that when it finally explodes, it was massive. Independently Brooke and Jace held their own. Jace was charming as ever and Brooke was fierce. I also enjoyed all the Connor family moments-they are always great. Fighting for You was sweet, fun, romantic, and pleasant. I’m excited for Hailey’s book next.
Jace is Officially Off the Market
I love both the Bennett & Connor sides of the family.
Jace is known to be a player both on and off the field. So when the coaches daughter, Brooke, is hired to handle the team sponsorships, she is off limits.
Jace is quickly attracted to Brooke. Brook has left her previous job because she became too close with her fellow employees - her best friend and her boyfriend (who ended up having a relationship). She vowed to never become involved with fellow employees again. Of course, she and Jace became 'friends' but didn't stay in the friend zone for very long, no matter how hard they tried.
An altercation between Jace and one of his fellow teammates at a gala caused Brooke to end up losing her job.
The rest of the story I will leave for you to read to see how this affects Jace & Brooke's relationship. Do they get their HEA? You will need to read it to see.
I love Layla Hagan and her series on siblings. They can be read as standalone books or as a series.
