Overview

He's got all the right moves

Omar Drummond is a pro football superstar with a body that's a pure work of art. But Morgan Gray is forbidden to act on their chemistry, or repeat their impulsive kiss. Proving her worth as a sports agent means securing the notorious celebrity as a client, not a lover. Yet between flowers, sweet notes and heady hotel interludes, Omar is shamelessly seducing her…

Other agents—and exes—have tried using Omar as a meal ticket, and he's closed himself off from emotional entanglements. With Morgan, it's a whole new playbook. Smart and tough, she can negotiate a contract and turn him on all in one go, and he craves more. But in matters of trust, he's just fumbled badly. To win her, he has to show her the man he can be away from the pitch and the limelight, and hope that this time they're both playing for keeps.

In Lister’s unsatisfying second Grays of Los Angeles contemporary (after Tender Kisses), attorney Morgan Gray finally gets a chance at her dream career of being a sports agent, putting her at odds with the original plan of her staying in the family business. Morgan knows football as well as the players do; however, being a woman makes it difficult for her to break into the business. Then football star Omar Drummond hires Morgan to replace his agent, whom he suspected of embezzlement. She proves to be a fierce negotiator who doesn’t indulge in league politics, and Omar feels her physical beauty only enhances her intelligence. His gentlemanly nature soon thwarts Morgan’s plans to keep their relationship strictly professional, but the tabloids are eager to portray him as a philanderer, and Morgan doesn’t want her career to be tainted by gossip of sexual favors, so they attempt to keep the relationship secret until after he signs his contract. The emotional conflict is based on a double standard—Morgan demands unquestioning trust from Omar but refuses to give him the same—and lacks any real depth, and it’s difficult for readers to empathize with the cranky, unyielding heroine. (Oct.)

I loved Omar and Morgan's story. This second book in Sheryl Lister's Grays of Los Angeles series was well written and as a reader I was immersed in the story from start to finish. I loved both books in the series so far and am looking forward to reading the next book.

Let me start this review off by saying - Romance is not the first genre I grab when I'm looking for something to read. But I always turn the pages with an open mind. Ok! That sounded a bit stiff! I always open the book looking for something/someone I can relate to - also a bit of nookie action doesn't hurt one bit. The story & characters were complex but very entertaining. There were times I wanted to strangle the characters, but I know when that happens I'm invested in the characters and the story. I applaud Author Sheryl Lister for tackling some serious subjects that I don't ever recall reading in any of the romance novels I have read in the past. This is my first read from Author Lister but definitely won't be my last. Grab your favorite beverage and get lost in Places in My Heart by Sheryl Lister. (Orsayor)
