Smart and sexy Dani Carr knows as much about football as any man--maybe more. It’s always been her dream to make a living talking about the game she loves. But Dani’s not interested in being just the usual eye-candy sideline reporter; she wants to be the first woman analyst on a pre-game show, the ultimate in exclusive boys-club jobs. And it turns out, that despite the odds, she has the talent to get her there.

Star quarterback-and heartthrob--Tyson Palmer always did things in spectacular fashion, including ruining his career after debuting as a first-round draft pick. When the head coach of the Austin Mavericks refuses to let him waste his million dollar arm, Tyson makes a Hail Mary pass at redemption and succeeds with everyone…except Dani, who appears to be using her high-profile commentator job to make a name for herself at his expense.

Dani refuses to let anyone forget about Tyson’s transgressions….and for good reason. There’s history between these two, sizzling history that dates back to their college days, and it ended in another spectacular flame-out of Tyson’s. He’s conveniently forgotten all about that episode because Dani is no longer the cute girl next door he barely remembers--she’s a bombshell with huge ratings and a long memory.

But can a woman trying to claw her way to the top and a quarterback who knows all about rock bottom make it to the Super Bowl without destroying each other in the process? And what will happen when Tyson-riding high on his career comeback-realizes he needs to make an even more important comeback with Dani?

My Thoughts:
I have been a fan of Stephanie Evanovich since I read "Big Girl Panties", that was such a good book that I read it 3 times since its been published. The total package was everything that I've come to expect from Stephanie's books. I enjoyed Tyson so much! I loved how it started out with him hitting rock bottom and all the hard work he had to do to get himself healthy. I was also a fan of Dani's, she seen the good in Tyson even when he was at his lowest. Together, they were adorably cute. I also loved that Dani was a sports reporter, she was a strong character in a "mans world". I liked how the other characters from this authors books made an appearance and that we got to read about two special moments for each couple! It made the book even better. I can not wait to see what characters come along next!
