Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author K. Bromberg is back with a heartfelt stand-alone romance and a new hero to steal your heart....  

Lennox:

The contract with Major League Soccer was supposed to help repair my damaged reputation. Then I discovered that I’d made a deal with the devil: The player I’m supposed to recruit is none other than the bad-boy star Premier League footballer Rush McKenzie. 

British. Tattooed. Sexy. A man currently at the center of a huge scandal. 

The goal? To convince him to stay in the States. 

But what’s wrong with a little fun in the meantime? No strings. No sweet nothings. Just a way to pass the time while we’re both struggling to prove our true selves to the world. 

If someone found out our relationship was anything more than professional, it would only serve to prove all our critics right. 

Rush:

I never should have agreed to take the fall. But I did, and I’m a man of my word. 

Even if it means risking everything I’ve worked for. 

The only bright side is Lennox Kincade. 

Gorgeous. Defiant. Rumor-tainted. Totally off-limits. 

Sharing a house with the gorgeous sports agent should have been a fun distraction from the turmoil. Someone to help pass the time while the tensions back home die down. 

But what started as nothing ends up as something I never saw coming.

Another great book!!!

I swear K. Bromberg always get me crying!! This was a great story. Rush only ever wanted to be a footballer. He had a really hard childhood and did anything to get by. Because of something that happened in his childhood he feels in debt to someone. He takes the blame for something he didn’t do. His agent tells him to come to L.A. and to help promote their league. Let things die down. Turns out he ends up meeting a agent who he starts to fall for. She’s the perfect woman because she too only knows this is for a short time. They both don’t want to be tied down. They don’t expect to fall for each other. He can tell
She cares about him in a way no one since his mom had. She’s giving him advice that favours him and it’s not the same advice his agent is giving. He wants what’s good for him and his pockets not listening or his client. Shane East and Vanessa Edwin were so good in this story! Five Stars!!

Romance Novel Perfection ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Oh man, was this book amazing!! I don’t take time to write a lot of reviews - I’m usually too busy trying to find my next book - but this story was so incredible, I just had to take a moment to praise it. I give it ALL THE STARS!!! Bromberg is one of my favorite authors and she simply outdid herself with this one! It was everything and more a romance novel should be. Beautifully written. A flawless mix of sexy and sweet, alluring yet relatable. Lennox and Rush were a perfect fit for each other and it was a pleasure to take this ride to their HEA with them. I was rooting for them the entire time, invested in the outcome. Very likable main characters - damaged but lovable, and both good to their cores, both worthy of finding their happy ending. Great side characters as well. I also personally enjoy a sports romance...and what’s not to love about a gorgeous, talented and loyal British footballer who meets his match in a sexy, strong sports agent with a heart of gold! If stories this top-notch were released everyday, I’d never accomplish anything in life...completely swept me away! The narration was excellent - and I could listen to Shane East’s sexy British accent all day, everyday. Basically, this was romance novel magic! Best use of a credit, ever!!!

soooo good

rush and Lennox have a beautiful story. Kristy is one of those few authors that can pull you in from the first word and this story was no different. I can't wait to see how the other 2 sisters story unfolds. but by far she writes the BEST dads in her stories. Kenyon is an amazing character that you can feel his deep bear hugs through the pages.

Loving this series

I am new to K. Bromberg books and loving her style with this series. Some of the reviews on the first book were brutal. Glad I did not follow along with those opinions and gave this series a chance. Emotion, humor, drama, and a story that kept my attention, with a beautiful happy ever after ending: what more can you want? Looking forward to the 3rd Kincaid sister’s story.

Characters were annoying

I will listen to anything Shane East does, but I could not finish this. The actors did the best they could do with the material, but the material was awful.

not in correct order

The prologue was at the end of the book instead of the beginning like it's written to be.

Another beautiful book.

I’m enjoying this series. Each book and story is unique to each couple and I’m learning a lot about the different sports. Light, fun and sexy stories just what I love in a romance book.
