The first time I met Brody Easton was in the men’s locker room.   
It was my first interview as a professional sportscaster.
The famed quarterback decided to bare all.   
And by all, I don’t mean he told me any of his secrets.  
No.  The arrogant ass decided to drop his towel, just as I asked the first question.  On camera.   
The Super Bowl MVP quickly adopted a new hobby—screwing with me.
When I pushed back, he shifted from wanting to screw with me, to wanting to screw me.
But I don’t date players.  
And it’s not because I’m one of the few women working in the world of professional football.   
I’d date an athlete.   
It’s the other kind of player I don’t date.   
You know the type.  Good looking, strong, cocky, always looking to get laid.
Brody Easton was the ultimate player.
Every woman wanted to be the one to change him.
But the truth was, all he needed was a girl worth changing for.
Turned out, I was that girl.
Simple right?
Let’s face it.  It never is.
There’s a story between once upon a time and happily ever after…  
And this one is ours.


**I received an ARC for an honest review.**

I LOVED this book. I mean I LOVED every single word of this book even those really tense ones when I didn't know what would happen next. Vi Keeland did an amazing job with not only making me fall in love with these characters, but will their stories as well, especially when she added that third POV. That was when I think I had a minor heart attack because, I though for sure I would die until I knew what would happen. Vi definitely knows how to build the tension...sexual and emotional. 

So, Brody Easton is definitely a drool worth alpha male book boyfriend. Gah...I LOVED his cocky ass right from the beginning and I loved that his character was such an honest one. He did have some changes over the course of this book, but for the most part his character was the same throughout only he got some mad relationship skills added to his arsenal. I loved his wooing tactics and that he made the effort to charm Delilah in his own way. 

I LOVED Delilah also, she is one of those heroines that you can't help but to respect and love. Especially since her chosen career path is dominated by men, but she has made a name for herself and earned her position. I like that she doesn't compromise her personal beliefs when Mr. Baller comes a calling. I liked that she held her ground and that she wasn't the one to give in. Her best friend Indie was such nice added bit of comic relief, especially during those tense moments that I was talking about. 

Both characters had some bad relationship experiences that were enough to cause them to not really want another serious one in the future. I liked the way the author built their relationship on more than just sex and that Brody and Delilah got to know each other as friends first. Even though I hated when Brody's past just popped up into his life, it something that needed to happen for his to finally be able to let go and move on. That really tense time of this book and their relationship gave them both some much needed perspective and allowed them to be able to move toward their future. 

I LOVED this book and it is a MUST read!!!

Excerpt from  
A new song had just started, and I was enjoying his company when a voice behind me said, “Can I cut in?”
My head whipped around, even though I had no doubt whom the gravelly voice belonged to.
Michael was gracious. “I hate to share. But I suppose I have been hogging the most beautiful woman at the event.” He let go of my hand and stepped back with a gentlemanly nod. “Thank you for the dance, Delilah.”
Again Brody Easton had caught me off guard. Before I knew it, I was dancing with the arrogant jerk.  He wrapped his arms around me and pulled my body tight against his. Way tighter than Michael had held me.
“Good to see you again, Lois Lane.”
The man had balls; I had to give him that. I looked him straight in the eyes. “Nice to see you with clothes on, Easton.”
“Do you prefer me without?”
“I prefer you on the other side of the room.”
He chuckled. It was a hearty laugh. “That’s what happens sometimes when you decide you want to hang out in the men’s locker room.”
I tried to pull back, but he tightened his grip and held me in place. I craned my neck. “Let go of me.”
“That’s right. No.”
“I can scream at the top of my lungs.”
“I’d like to hear you scream.” His tone made it clear he meant he wanted me underneath him while I was doing the screaming.
“You’re an asshole. You know that?”
“I do. You asked me that yesterday. For a reporter, you should really try changing up your questions more frequently.”
My eyes bulged.
Easton shifted his hand down to the small of my back before twirling us around the dance floor. Figures the prick can dance.
“Are you seeing anyone?”
“You can’t be serious?”
He ignored my comment. “Would you like to have dinner tonight?”
“We just ate.”
“Dessert at my place, then?”
I couldn’t help but laugh. “Did you hit your head at the game yesterday?”
“On a diet, huh?”
“Yeah. That’s it. I don’t want to go to your place for dessert because I’m on a diet.”
“Well, that’s just a shame.”
