We start off with a lie on Valentine’s Day.
My blind date isn’t the studious guy I expected. Nope, he’s a drop-dead gorgeous player with sinful amber eyes and a killer body. Somehow we end up at his penthouse. I blame the gin and tonic.
The next day I learn he’s Jack Hawke—bad-boy professional quarterback with a murky past.
The NDA he had me sign should have been a warning that he isn’t a regular person. Please. I signed it Juliet Capulet, so goodbye, famous football player with abs of steel, and good luck tracking down this small-town librarian.
But Jack keeps showing up in places I least expect him. Just when I’m sure he’s gone, he waltzes into my community theater and wins the part of Romeo to my Juliet.
How’s a plain, mostly innocent girl like me supposed to resist a man like him?
Is Jack my real Romeo…or will this gorgeous football player only break my heart?
Looking for an alpha male that is so used to everyone taking advantage of him that he does not know how to react when Elena does not use him for his fame or fortune? Check out Jack Hawke a pro quarterback for a football team that Elena knows nothing about. When they accidentally go out on a blind date sparks fly, the attraction is there, and they both do not know what to do about it. Are you wondering how someone accidentally goes out on a blind date? You will have to read the book to find out the answer to that.
I loved Elena. She has spunk, she is strong, but she has a sweet and innocent side to her. While she puts Jack in his place more than once, she also understands that Jack is used to people using him for what he can get them, where he can take them, and what he does for a living. Very few people know the real Jack Hawke and Elena wants to know that person.
The small-town setting where most of the book takes place is so true to form. Everyone knows everyone else, they gossip, drive by the house when a new car appears, and knows your coming and goings. Daisy, the town, was the perfect place for Elena to live and for her story to be told.
