The Raleigh Rough Riders are back, and this time Super Bowl Quarterback Beaux Hale finds himself playing the most important game of his life.
Every woman knows Beaux Hale is nothing but a player. Yet the first time he walks into Paige Halloway’s restaurant and flashes his sexy grin, she feels a heat between them spark. Too bad he opens his mouth and ruins it.
He may think his money, fame, and sexy looks will attract any woman—but he’s wrong.
Paige doesn’t have time for a man. She’s too busy keeping a roof over her head and taking care of her father to care about relationships.
Lucky for Beaux, he’s a man who's ready to use all the plays at his disposal. He didn’t bring his team a Super Bowl victory by giving up at the first block in his path—and Paige Halloway has just become his new long-game.
Beaux also knows that sometimes, in order to win and claim your prize, you have to get a little bit filthy.

Well if I knew they had football players like Beaux Hale I might have enjoyed the sport a little more. Stacey Lynn really outdid herself with this read. I literally couldn't put this book down once I started. Even though I am not a huge football fan I really enjoyed this book. From the plot to the characters created I was hooked. It was filled with laugh out loud moments, the right amount of angst, just a little drama and a whole lot of anticipation. The chemistry between Beaux and Paige was so intense and sexy as hell!!! I loved Beaux's cockiness/alpha but I also loved his determination and his soft side. Paige was strong willed yet vulnerable and the connection they had throughout this book was so well written. I also loved the growth they showed throughout the story. This is one of my favorite reads by Stacey Lynn and I have read all her books. Even if your are not a fan of football I promise you will love this book.
Filthy Player made me melt for Beaux! I get so wrapped up with Romance novels that have their hero as arrogant, mean, and very controlling that it was a nice surprise that Beaux was so genuine. Yes he is a player on and off the field. Yes he had his eyes set on Paige forever. He even comes off as a bit of a jerk. Once he has an opening into Paige's life, his arrogant ways seem to disappear. It was a breath of fresh air to read about a really good guy. He truly has a heart of gold! Don't get me wrong though. He makes up for it behind closed doors. I mean the title of the book isn't called Filthy Player for nothing. He gets down and dirty and I was running a temperature through the yummy scenes we get. I heart Paige hard! She is my favorite heroine. She also has a heart of gold and always puts others first. Beaux is there to show her how to finally live without guilt. Filthy Player made me swoon and love these characters. We get some other characters in the story from the first book. I love Shannon and her hot fiancé. Everything seems to fall into place, until it shattered. The drama gets intense. Your head spins and heart crashed in pieces. This story shows you Love is really a good thing. Filthy Player made my toes curl and my heart full. Stacey Lynn gives you more than Sports Romance, she gives you heart and sexy.
I so sorry to have reached the end of this wonderful, sweet heart-warming story. Beaux Hale, quarterback for the Rough Riders is not the ‘filthy player’ he’s been made out to be by the press. Neither is he the arrogant ass that Paige, part-time waitress at thinks he is. Admittedly he does make an ass of himself on their first meeting and is put in his place with the aid of a jug of ice water. Paige is struggling to make ends meet. Not only is she a waitress at the Ride ‘Em Rough Bar whenever she can, but she’s a mechanic at her dad’s garage too. But, her dad is ill and his medical bills are way more than she can handle. When Beaux shows her that he’s not the guy she thought he was, she’s charmed into giving him a chance and boy is he worth it. He’s gorgeous, hot and exudes a whole other level of sexiness in his concern for Paige and her dad. The heat this engenders is beyond amazing because Paige’s pride sometimes gets in her way but Beaux isn’t scared off. He’s just more determined than ever to make her his. I gave up counting how many times Stacey brought me to tears with this story, but for every heartbreak, there’s a smile to compensate. Gosh, I could go on and on but I’m going to stop her. Just know, if you wanted the sweetest, sexier most ‘feels’ sports romance of this month, if not this year, then look no further. Beaux and Paige won’t let you down. One-Click this beauty today and find out what I mean.
Being the quarterback for the Raleigh Rough Riders definitely comes with it's advantages, one of those being the long line of women always vying for his attention, but Beaux Hale is growing tired of that lifestyle... he wants something more. And he thinks that he might have found it, but the problem is that she doesn't seem to be aware that he exists, night after night he goes into the crappy little diner she works in and tries to catch her eye, but she just goes about her business and ignores him. Then by sheer luck he finally finds himself sitting in her area, and is ready to make his move... but then he screws it up royally and is certain he has lot his shot. But then fate steps in and gives him the second chance he was hoping for, and this time he isn't walking away until he gets the girl! Paige Halloway knows all about playboy quarterback Beaux Hale, she has seen the pictures, heard all the rumors, and she is determined to not be the next woman in line to be seen draped on the arm of the football star. But then him and his buddies wander into her restaurant and take a seat in her area, and she is forced to play ball with the sexy quarterback... and he shows her his true jerky colors. And just as she is ready to permanently write him off, he surprises her and comes to her rescue, which leads her to think maybe she misjudged him and he does have a sweet side after all. Maybe, just maybe, she should give him a shot to prove her initial instincts wrong... Filthy Player is a hellaciously hot little literary romp that will have you swooning from the moment you crack the cover!!! When Beaux wandered onto the page he had my undivided attention, and while he initially came off as a prick, he quickly redeemed himself, and showed me that he was a good man... a mighty good man!! His story packs a serious punch, it is an emotional one that will have you feeling the words, but also a sexy one that will have you feeling the heat! This is my second visit to the series and I have to say that this visit was just as enjoyable as the first...Beaux definitely held his own up against my favorite tight end Oliver!! Highly recommend this one, it is a sexy little romance story that is sure to curl your toes, and leave your heart overflowing!! I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this title.
From the very first time I met Beaux in this book, I liked him. I was expecting a typical cocky football quarterback with a list of women a mile long and an attitude about him. Now don't get me wrong, Beaux was some of that, but from the get go, he was a gentleman. I loved Paige and how she had so much spirit even though she was bone tired from having to work to take care of her dad. Both of these characters respected who each other were as they got to know each other and were able to look past the poor girl or the million dollar quarterback. Beaux and Paige truly fell for each other. I loved watching it happen. I didn't read the first book in this series, but I definitely need to go back and do it. The writing was great and I loved the suspense at the end. The characters were well written and I think this is a great group of guys that I can't wait to get to know! Of course I'm counting on seeing more of Paige and Beaux!
If every man was like Beaux Hale, then we'd finally achieve world peace! Filthy Player was just a downright delicious read! This book overflows with heat, heart, and a happily ever after. Sexual chemistry sears the pages, and the emotional connections hit you right in the feels. Man, oh man....I loved this book! Filthy Player was nothing like I expected, but in the best way possible. Passion, heartache, and devotion are just a few of the remarkable qualities this book possesses. The story was exceedingly original, displaying the true grit and hardships that can often times become lost while establishing relationships between the characters. The comedic aspects make this book very entertaining, but it's the underlying essence of love that truly empowers this story to go from great, to utterly fantastic! Stacey Lynn penned a beautiful sports romance like I've never read before! (And believe me, I've read my fair share.) Gone are the assumptions of what a sports-star should be, and you're given a raw, and heartfelt love story that burns through you with desire and melts your heart with tenderness! Unquestionable 5 star must-read!
