When Killian MacGregor, the hottest quarterback in the NFL, eyes the perfect pair of female legs, he spends an hour tracking the gorgeous woman in a room filled with rowdy teammates until one gets out of line.
Rebecca Cavanaugh, a long distance runner for the state team, intimidates boys and men with her quick wit and majestic height. The pre-season jock party isn’t her scene, but she’s roped into attending to provide her sister a sober ride home.
Hiding in the kitchen to avoid the athletic sex fest, a drunken thug forces Rebecca to her knees, and waves a giant ding-dong in her face. Before Rebecca can extricate herself from the hairy situation, an unknown champion saves the night. When Killian assists Rebecca off the floor, she’s stunned into silence while staring at the sexiest man alive.
Will Killian’s bad boy rep and Rebecca’s need for commitment, make this the most impossible “Play” of the season? Or, will Killian’s haunting past and need for victory destroy the most important game of his life?
“Play” is intended for mature readers 17+. Enjoy with caution… this book contains adult situations, explicit sex, and more balls than a girl knows what to do with.
Amazing book! Sexy, realistic, and unpredictable 👌🏾👍🏾
Worth the read
Killian is a NFL quarterback and meets Rebecca at a party. They have a bit of an insta-love connection, although her insecurities and his temper/game focus is an issue between them.
This was bit of a weird one for me. I thought in the beginning, it would be problematic for me. There was some weird social commentary that I found off putting, but by the 2nd chapter, it had died off. I actually really liked Killian. He was caring and thoughtful with Rebecca. She had insecurities with her “plain Jane” looks and her height. He really put up with way more than I would with trying to get Rebecca to see her beauty.
He was sole minded when it came to winning the game. This made for tense game day rituals and bad behavior when losing, but he was always quick to explain his behavior in advance so she was prepared and apologize.
Where this book went from a 3 star read to a 4 a star read was after the inevitable “problem” that all romance novels have where the couple questions there connection. Killian said something truly awful and hurtful. However, instead of the accident troupe or a half a$$ed apology where the woman folds and forgives him, Rebecca actually suddenly grew a backbone. Was pretty shocking after she came off a little...desperate?...during the course of the novel, but I liked it! He really did the grovel and did it well. Gotta love a good grovel.
Overall, I would recommend!
It was honestly a bit of a drag. The beginning seemed like it was all over the place and I was very bored. It started gaining some speed but didn't really reach a successful height.
I download this book because of the name 'Killian', really. Awesome name. His character is good. Loved the part where he blew a kiss in the first game shown.
Some parts were unrealistic which I dislike so it lost a star. The boredom cut another star.
