Sidelined by the very public news of a surprise engagement, the accomplished event planner Bryn Charles ends her unlikely love affair with her NFL superstar client, Shane Smith, and is determined to have a future without him.
Only, she fears it's impossible.
She's contracted to plan his next big event and inundated with non-stop news coverage of his record-breaking season. To make matters worse, she is struggling with a secret that she won't be able to hide for much longer. But when an awful evening brings the seemingly sincere bad boy to her doorstep, Bryn is unable to turn him away.Will she reveal her secret and stay true to herself, or will she play her position despite the tactics of a vengeful ex? Either way, she'll have a hefty penalty to pay.
When up-and-coming event planner Bryn Charles scores NFL superstar Shane Smith as a client, she thinks she has it made. But with only six weeks to create the “hottest event Baltimore’s ever seen”, she has her work cut out for her. Complicating her efforts is Shane’s determination to score her like one of his touchdowns. In order to stay in the game, she must decide whether she can play by his rules.
Convinced only a fool would date a professional athlete, Bryn ignores his advances—until she wakes up at an impromptu sleepover next to a shirtless Shane. Suddenly the two of them can’t stay apart. Only Bryn doesn’t realize the true complexities of Shane’s life. Caught up in her own desires, she dismisses the warning signs and gives in to a love affair unlike any she’s ever had.
But just when Bryn believes she might have found the love of her life, a blast from Shane’s past causes interference. Now Bryn must decide if she can stay in the game—or if she’s doomed to sit it out on the sideline.
