NFL bad boy Knox Beckinsale has made headlines one time too many. Injured, suspended from the Torpedoes, and needing to clean up his image—fast—he heads to Fort Collins to help his Grandma Rosie after her heart attack. No women. No parties. No trouble. Until he meets Leila Patton, who’s nothing but trouble with big blue eyes and a girl next door demeanor that does nothing to hide curves that could make a man forget his religion.
Knox Beckinsale is cocky, arrogant, and sexy as sin—everything unemployed journalist Leila isn’t looking for in a man. Which makes him absolutely perfect for banishing the memory of her former boyfriend who broke her heart—and fired her. But one night turns into another, and before long Leila realizes there’s more to Knox than just a pretty face and killer abs.
When secrets from Knox's past surface, Leila is forced to choose between writing the story of a lifetime...or taking a chance on her own love story.

Knox Beckinsale has the worst reputation. He may be an NFL star but between an injury, suspension from his team and a tainted personal life due to some really bad choices, he is in the headlines for all the wrong reasons! Fort Collins may be just the escape he needs. His gran needs help and he loves that woman. He can get his physio nearby and his vow to be woman free should be a breeze. Enter Leila Patton, she may look like the girl next door but she has curves that Knox just can't ignore. After interference from both of their grandmothers, the couple find themselves fighting a mutual attraction. Leila has her own relationship ghosts and has no interest in this cocky man, at all, really. If she says it often enough she might believe it. When Knox' indiscretions come to light when Leila takes on an assignment which might land her the journalism job of her dreams, will Leila cut and run and use Knox to leapfrog up the career ladder? Is Knox using Leila's wholesome image to cure his bad reputation? OMG I'm loving this new series! Knox and Leila are just sparks galore and I was rooting for them from start to finish. I loved that there was more to Know than a killer smile, abs and being famous for the wrong reasons. Leila was really well written as the woman whose world has been whipped away from her through no fault of her own. And those grannies!!! Talk about master manipulators! A great read and I can't wait to get my hands on the rest of the series!
