Peek Inside Game for Trouble

Despite their wicked-hot history, Willow never wants to see playboy football star Nick Hamilton again. But when he offers to sell her the commercial space she’s been coveting in exchange for another shot, Willow decides all’s fair in sex and blackmail. Little does she know, Nick’s playing to win…and Willow is the prize.

He’ll play dirty to get what he wants…

Willow Cavanaugh would be happy if she never saw Nick Hamilton again. Sure, they had a short-lived fling many years ago, but now he’s back and acting like he wants a second chance. But Willow knows he’s way too much of a playboy to want to settle down with one woman. Plus, she’s got her heart set on a piece of real estate for her catering business that it turns out Nick owns…

Nick may be at the top of his game, but all he really seems to want is Willow. When he offers to sell Willow his commercial space if she agrees to a series of dates with him, jumping back into bed after each one seems like an inevitability. But what about when real feelings get involved?


"Game for Trouble was a sweet second chance romance with plenty of push and pull, and just the right amount of steam." --Rachel, Goodreads

"I REALLY LIKED this book so much, that the pages were turning quickly and I had a very hard time putting it down. I absolutely LOVED the hero Nick, he was so darn sexy. " --Kathleen, Goodreads

"It’s an overall, sweet, short and easy read. If you are a fan of the series you will not be disappointed." --Jacqueline Reads
