Get Ready to Play Rough
Shay Beckham grew up idolizing her brother’s best friend, star quarterback Joe Reilly. There was no one in their Texas town who had the moves to match Joe on or off the field. Years later, he’s still a player who has what it takes to drive any hot-blooded woman wild. But Shay isn’t a kid with a bad case of hero-worship anymore. She’s grown-up and independent, with her feet on the ground and a serious head on her shoulders. If she could just say the same for Joe.
It’s been fifteen years, but Joe Reilly hasn’t forgotten the skinny little kid who used to follow him around like a shadow. What he can’t get over is that the skinny shadow has grown into one hell of an incredible woman. One any man in his right mind would kill to get his hands on. And one who seems to be completely immune to him. He knows he and Shay could have something special together. If he could only convince her he’s about more than just the game.
Shay has always had a thing for Joe Reilly, unfortunately he was her brothers best friend and also a player so she figured that she didn't stand a chance. Joe has always looked at Shay as his best friends pesky little sister until she grew up and grown into a incredible woman. With Shay now a graphic design artist and staying with her brother until she finds a place she finds Joe at the house because her brother said that he can crash there. From the first interaction between the two (which was hilarious and sexy at the same time) the chemistry has been out of this world. Shay's still attracted to Joe and he's intrigued by her. Too bad that Shay holds his past against him and is skeptical about giving him a chance. Joe knows that if Shay can see him for who he is now that they will be great together but he's terrified that she will think that its only for his career. This was a great take on a sports romance with unrequited love thrown in. Add in the hilarious banter and the reunion between old friends and you have a recipe to what will be a fantastic series.
