His Redtails teammates love him...when they don't want to gag him. From the moment he sees Sophie, Derek discovers what it's like to be struck dumb. For two seconds. Then he does what he does best. He charms his way into her bed. But can he charm his way into her life?
He's about to take a slapshot to the heart...
Sophie Tsoukalos is well acquainted with chaos. As a waitress in her parents' bar and favorite aunt of her four sisters' kids, she's used to dealing with drunks and toddlers. But she's never met a man like Derek. His panty-dropping smile entices her to let loose and invite him into her bed. She never expected this playboy to want to stay. But when he pushes for more than she's prepared to give, will Sophie give him heart? Or let him slip through her fingers?

This review is not based on the author's writing style. The storyline was fine. I just didn't enjoy the book as much as I would have liked to because I didn't feel a connection with Derek or Sophie. Because of this, their story didn't hold my attention. I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary Advance Reader Copy.
