Publisher Description

New York Times bestselling author, K. Bromberg, is back with a new Kincade sister and a swoon-worthy football player in an all new standalone romance that will make you believe in first crushes and true love

I’ve signed numerous players to my family’s agency—I assumed winning over my next client would be just as easy.

The last thing I expected was to run into the boy who took my first kiss and broke my heart: only now Drew Bowman is all grown up.

Sexy. Scandal-tainted. Second-string. The crush I never got over. 

I tell myself work is the reason I can’t get him out of my head. I tell him his talent far outweighs his position, and I know I can help. I lie and lie, because admitting that I want a second chance at my first love is impossible. 

Some lines cannot be crossed, and ours was drawn in the sand years ago.


I’m supposed to hate her. 

I’ve been told so time and again for ten years - her father ruined our family, smeared my name before my career even began.

But that’s not what I’m feeling now. 

Brexton Kincade just strode out of my memories and onto my field. 

Driven. Determined. Grown up. The Capulet to my Montague. 

Being with her would be an unforgivable sin against my father, but I can’t resist the pull between us. Even if it means hiding what we have. Even if it means confronting the secrets I’ve always feared were lies.

Are you ready to fall for the Kincade sisters and then men who love them in K. Bromberg's sexy, contemporary, sports romance series? These books can all be read as standalones, but you’ll enjoy reading them as a series!

I am loving this series. Every time I finish a book I say it was my favorite. So the entire series has been wonderful. Drew was such a sweet man and I just loved this book. Can't wait to read about Chase and Gunner!

Second Chance Love Done Right

So it's no secret that I have found my way back to author K. Bromberg, and I am loving it. FLIRTING WITH 40 kicked things off, and I am so totally enamored of the Play Hard series that I can't say enough good things about these books.

Kristy delivers the perfect blend of smart, steamy, and sweet. A smart, savvy woman who can make it on her own, a hero who brings out her softer side, and plenty of swoon, HARD TO SCORE hits all the marks and then some. Brexton and Drew make second-chance love look like the best thing ever, and I could not have enjoyed their story more.

I'm telling you, if you're a romance fan, you need to be reading Kristy's books, because they satisfy at every level. There's some angst, just enough, and storylines that make me happy to be reading. Make sure these are on your night table, your e-reader, your TBR, what have you. Just dive in and enjoy. ❤️

Superbly well done!

This was sooooo good!

Unexpectedly heart wrenching!

Hit me all in my feels!!

A sweetly hot, second chance romance done very, very well.

I fell in love with Brexton. Who’s been in love with Drew since they were so young...

Unexpected hardships cause their families to lose touch... until a chance meeting again.

If you’re looking for a 2nd chance, football romance, superbly written with a fabulous plot this is it!
