Tennyson Clark is getting a life. First step: quitting her job as assistant to Dominic Anderson, star quarterback for the Washington Warriors, her best friend … and the man she’s been secretly in love with for years. But since the gorgeous, if overprotective playboy has only ever seen her as his BFF, she’s finally ready to relinquish her tattered fantasy and move on. Enter steps two and three: new job and new man.
Football is Dominic’s life, and with his contract soon up for renewal, all his focus needs to be on the game. But Tennyson—dependable, logical Tennyson— is making that next to impossible with her mysterious new job and her sudden interest in online dating. He doesn’t do relationships. But the thought of another man touching her sexier-than-hell curves has him suddenly wanting more from his best friend.
Indulging in hot, dirty, what’s-my-name sex with no strings and lots of benefits is simple, uncomplicated…until it’s not.
Tennyson has been in love with her best friend Dom for most of her life. Dom has done what he can to make sure Tenny has the best life she can; that’s what best friends do. He has no desire for a relationship, especially not with her, but he can’t deny the attraction between them. Entering into a ‘no strings attached friends with benefits’ arrangement with the man you love is never a smart idea. But Tenny decides her heart can take it. Until it can’t. Will Dom ever realize her feelings? Or will she keep them a secret forever to save their friendship?
I hadn’t read the first book in this series but I definitely want to now. This book had sweet moments, sad times and steamy scenes hot enough to make me turn on the AC. The chemistry between Tenny and Dom is very intense. The pacing of this was good; it felt fast but that was because the author drew in the reader and hooked their attention at the beginning. The supporting cast really added character to the book and I hope we see more of them! Overall a very good read – a great friends to lover sports romance.
