New York Times bestselling author Nalini Singh brings you a sinfully playful contemporary romance between two sworn enemies turned partners in crime…
Daniel Esera is a young god on the rugby field, a sexy and charming man who's got the world at his feet. There’s just one problem: his sudden potent attraction to his number one nemesis—Catie River. No. Just no. Not happening.
Catie River is on her way to Paralympic gold, and she’s not about to allow Danny “Hotshot” Esera to derail her plans. Too bad her body isn’t cooperating. Even worse? Her heart might be coming along for the ride. No. Nope. Never.
The pair are united in their desire to remain enemies…until a stranger’s reckless action threatens both their careers. Now, the only way out for Catie and Danny is to pretend to be in a relationship. How bad can it be? They’re adults in full control of their hormones and their hearts. There will be no kissing. No PDA. And definitely no falling in love.
Let the games begin.
This was such a sweet love story. Strange to say that because this started out as frenemies, however there was never any dislike between the two.
To me, Catie and Danny actually starts out with a sibling like relationship. I know that sounds weird since they end up together, but these two have known each other since they were kids. They were thrown together a lot due to Sailor and Isa's relationship (book one of the series), and it just didn't start out with an option to a romantic relationship due to their age. They have a history of that young relationship where they pranked each other constantly and that just bled into their adult relationship.
By the time it got to where Catie and Danny could take their relationship in a different direction, it just didn't seem like an option...until they have to fake it for the media. When that happens, it like a whole new world opened up. You really get to see such a sweet, beautiful reltionship bloom right before your eyes.
I'm usually one who prefer the alpha male and while Danny is that, he also pulled off the ultimate sweet boyfriend. He was protective, he was very thoughtful to Catie and everything that would impact her. I could actually see how easily it would have been for her to break his heart.
Catie has learned very early that she has very few she can trust in her life. It makes it harder for her to truly believe what is developing between her and Danny as real. He's exactly what she needs after everything she has been through. I really just adored this couple and I think the author did their change in relationship right. Beautiful couple!
