"I would recommend this book to all fans of the romance genre, especially those who love sports romances. If you like Jill Shalvis or Susan Mallery you should give Kate Donovan a try." —Lea O'Connor, Goodreads
When Erica McCall finally gets her big break in advertising, she knows just which spokesperson to pitch: gorgeous football superstar Johnny Spurling. She has followed his career since college and knows he’s perfect for the spot, even though it’s common knowledge his famous family doesn’t do product endorsements, ever. But Erica knows Johnny’s weak spot, and she’s confident she can use it to gain his trust and seal the deal.
Quarterback Johnny Spurling is running out of time. His father’s health is failing, and there’s one last thing he’s asked Johnny to do—settle down and produce a son, before it’s too late. Which means Johnny needs a new kind of girlfriend. No more casual hookups or high-maintenance divas. When his sister-in-law claims to have the perfect candidate, he urges her to set up a postseason blind date.
Then Johnny meets long-haired, long-legged Erica and can’t resist her outrageous proposal—or her. So he decides he’ll do the commercial and have one final, hot-as-hell fling before settling down. They set the ground rules, then proceed to break every one of them as fun turns to the kind of true romance that just doesn’t end with the final touchdown—and with luck, never ends at all.
"This is a fun read. Johnny is almost too sweet and too hot, but overall the book is awesome! I can't wait to read more of Kate Donovan's books!" —Stephanie C., Goodreads
"Playing for Keeps is a real feel-good, warm and fuzzies romance, with grit, and plenty of drama to keep you engrossed for hours. Filled with characters you'll love, and plenty of "aw" moments and three totally adorable guys. Truly enjoyable, and one you'll read again and again." —Alisha T., Goodreads

Sooo confusing .. Started slow , first 200 pages were of Erica flying to see Johnny or vice versa ... Then another 100 of Erica being confused and not up front with Johnny .. Then more confusion and Johnny is putting up with all the nonsense ... ugh .... Not that great of a plot and there are no steaming love scenes and in fact Erica seems more like a prude ... I mean here's a line from when a scene was about to take place ...
“Still, when he tried to undress her too, she stepped away and did it herself, trying for a hot—but not too hot—display.”
A bit boring ....
