Bad boy and former NFL running back Patrick Guinness is tired of meaningless sex. Ever since his scorching hot one-night stand three years ago, no one has interested him. So when Max Segreti wanders into his mechanic shop—and his life again—Patrick can't stop thinking about the totally-out-of-his-league law grad and the possibility of getting him out of his system once and for all…
Max Segreti has spent his entire life doing what his father wants. But when he runs into the hotter-than-hell player he’s never been able to forget, he’s not thinking about studying for the bar. A distraction is the last thing he needs, but after an encounter leaves him wanting more, Max embraces the chaos that Patrick brings…even as he knows it can’t last. They're too different to ever have a future together.

I for one certainly fell for these two players – Patrick Guinness and Max Segreti.
I loved this. For me, it was how the author showcased these two men’s imperfections that made it stand out from other m/m contemporary’s. And not just their imperfections but also their great divide in wealth and cu... ...more
I liked Patrick and Max. I loved how each asks about the other at their works, of course Max did not know Patrick worked there at first. Liam was great and sassy. I am hoping to read more about Liam and Tommy in more books. Also more about Max and Patrick so I hope this turns into a series. ...more

I enjoyed Max and Patrick's story--though you should be warned, it's not really a "sports" romance, even though the title and cover make it look like it is. By the time the book really gets going (the very beginning takes place three years earlier than the rest of the book) Patrick's already reti... ...more
