For five years, Cecilia Morgan’s entire existence has revolved around playing personal assistant to self-centered former NFL quarterback Wade Carter. But just when she finally gives her notice, his father’s health fails, and Wade whisks her back to his hometown. CC will stay for his dad—for now—even if that means ignoring how sexy her boss is starting to look in his Wranglers.
To say CC’s notice is a bombshell is an insult to bombs. Wade can’t imagine his life without his “left tackle.” She’s the only person who can tell him “no” and strangely, it’s his favorite quality. He’ll do anything to keep her from leaving, even if it means playing dirty and dragging her back to Credence, Colorado, with him.
But now they’re living under the same roof, getting involved in small-town politics, and bickering like an old married couple. Suddenly, five years of fighting is starting to feel a whole lot like foreplay. What’s a quarterback to do when he realizes he might be falling for his “left tackle”? Throw a Hail Mary she’ll never see coming, of course.

Nothing but 10 STARS!!!
I received a complimentary copy of this book from NetGalley and I am voluntarily reviewing it.
What can I say but I LOVED it! It was hilarious and heart-breaking at the same time. The emotional roller-coaster that I went through was thrilling. I felt so much for Cecilia (CC). She is the P.A. to an ex-pro football quarterback. She has been for 5 and 1/2 years. She is so looking forward to leaving and getting to California that she could taste it. Being the PA to Wade has been rough. She is available to his whims 24/7. It is rough getting up at 3 in the morning to get him his favorite candy and more condoms. She has to take calls from woman after he breaks it off (Wade gives out CC's number not his!) I thought Wade was a big jerk at first. But going to Credence, CO to live under the same roof so Wade can write his book and help out on the family farm, really brings out a different side to Wade.
These two have a tumultuous but very hilarious journey to their HEA. The journey was difficult at times to watch but others had me wiping tears from my eyes from laughter. The characters were wonderful and the plot was a feel-good one. I could really imagine the scenes like I was right there in the middle of the action.
This book had a multiple POV. It was wonderful to see into different characters' mind to fully relate to them. I really look forward to more of Credence, CO stories.
I highly recommend.
Great new series!!
I've loved every one of AA's rugby series so when I read the blurb for this one, I was all over it. Football and small-town? YES PLEASE!!
CC is an amazing character and from the very beginning of this story, I was drawn in and wanted to race to the end to see how everything played out for her. Wade is a great character but some of his faults were big for me and I, at times, didn't think he deserved someone as awesome as his PA.
Credence is a fantastic town that I would love to visit. I can't wait to see where this series goes and who gets their HEA next!!
Fun Sports Romance
Wade “The Catapult” Carter is a retired Super Bowl winning quarterback, five and a half years ago, he hired CC as his personal assistant. CC is closing in on the end of her six year contract and cannot wait to quit and start her life over in California. CC has to give the brush off to Wade’s latest conquest, and she has had enough. She lets Wade know that she is quitting. Wade does not want her to quit, so he makes a deal with CC. He will not sue her for breach of contract if she goes with him to his hometown for three months. They agree and go to Credence Colorado, where CC meets his family and gets entangled in Wade’s mother’s scheme to get women to Credence to revitalize the dying town. Wade and CC start to see each other as something other than employer and employee. I loved both Wade and CC and how their relationship developed. I cannot wait for future stories of the hot bachelors of Credence. I was given an ARC of this book from NetGalley for my honest review.
