Smart and sexy Dani Carr knows as much about football as any man–maybe more. It’s always been her dream to make a living talking about the game she loves. But Dani’s not interested in being just the usual eye-candy sideline reporter; she wants to be the first woman analyst on a pre-game show, the ultimate in exclusive boys-club jobs. And it turns out, that despite the odds, she has the talent to get her there.

Star quarterback-and heartthrob–Tyson Palmer always did things in spectacular fashion, including ruining his career after debuting as a first-round draft pick. When the head coach of the Austin Mavericks refuses to let him waste his million dollar arm, Tyson makes a Hail Mary pass at redemption and succeeds with everyone…except Dani, who appears to be using her high-profile commentator job to make a name for herself at his expense.

Dani refuses to let anyone forget about Tyson’s transgressions….and for good reason. There’s history between these two, sizzling history that dates back to their college days, and it ended in another spectacular flame-out of Tyson’s. He’s conveniently forgotten all about that episode because Dani is no longer the cute girl next door he barely remembers–she’s a bombshell with huge ratings and a long memory.

But can a woman trying to claw her way to the top and a quarterback who knows all about rock bottom make it to the Super Bowl without destroying each other in the process? And what will happen when Tyson-riding high on his career comeback-realizes he needs to make an even more important comeback with Dani?



Ahhhh, second chance love with a hint of sex makes for an actually pretty delightful quick and easy read. If you’re looking for downright dirty, you’ll need to turn your head because that’s not happening here. BUT, for the sexy romance fans, you’ll eat this book right up with it’s sweet story and easy going characters.
After throwing herself at Tyson and essentially only gaining a notch on her (and his) bedpost, Dani is heartbroken. She wanted more. She wanted to help Tyson build himself into the person she knew he could be. But he wasn’t there yet and he barely remembers their errrrr bang session? I feel like with this book I should use the word ‘coupling’ or something.
ANYWAY, of course when she meets up with him again she holds back. I mean, who wouldn’t? She doesn’t trust him even though he’s more than trustworthy at this point. Their relationship is ups and downs from the start. It’s basically a combination of second chance love and enemies to lovers – which means if you’re a sucker for those stories, you’ll absolutely adore this one.
While some of the story felt a little forced (I still don’t entirely understand the point of LaRue, one of the secondary characters), I overall loved Dani and Tyson and I was more than happy to be swept away on their journey.
Easy, light and quick, you’ll want to tackle Tyson to the ground and kiss him senseless. The Total Package makes a great play! 3.75 stars!
