LOVE AND PLAY: THE COMPLETE SERIES
He's pretending to be mine
Notorious British bad boy footballer Dylan Pierce is scorching hot…
and he knows it.
With a mouth as filthy as his reputation, linking myself with him could ruin my public image.
But showbusiness is all about risk and as a down-on-my-luck actress,
this could be the break my career needs.
Brooke Sullivan is my most difficult opponent yet.
Being seen with a good girl like her may give me a chance at Hollywood stardom,
but I never expected to crave this feisty redhead.
I can't lose my focus–I always keep my eye on the ball,
I'm always match-fit.
And winning her is the most important game I've ever played.
In order to win his heart, I'll have to play his game
All over Broadway, my name is up in lights. From New York to London, the words 'Gemma Sinclair' are synonymous with up-and-coming fame, and a super-fast rise to success.
Yeah, well, super isn't how I feel…
Between my deadbeat addict of an ex-boyfriend and the stress of my parents relying on me back home—sometimes I feel like the ground beneath my feet is slipping away.
Until I crossed paths with Knox Callahan, the hot and sexy as hell veteran player for the New York Football Club—and a total player when it comes to women. A year after our disastrous first date, I'm still in no position to have anything to do with a guy like him.
But then right at my lowest, here he comes, riding back into my life and offering me something I've been desperately longing for—support. And truth.
And, well, the truth is—now I can't for the life of me remember why I didn't want to be a part of his team…
If I'm allowed to break free, I just might fall
My whole life I'd been driven by my mother to be one of the greatest ballerinas that the New York City Ballet has ever seen. She kept me in a glass viewing case, not meant to be handled or touched.
But once I remove my pointe shoes, I yearn for independence, escape, and the freedom just to be me…and to have him, Tyler Wilson.
Tyler may be the star striker for New York FC and a serial womanizer, but underneath his frivolous bravado, I see the real Tyler – the kind, protective man I've known since childhood. Though he still sees me as a fragile, an untouchable princess.
Now we're kind of working together, I feel the crack of electric, sexual tension in the air with each glance shared and I have my chance. I will show Tyler I'm not just a ballerina in a box, and together, we will defy everyone and break the rules.
But we can never, ever be caught.
