New York Times bestselling author Violet Duke kicks off her sexy & sweet new Fourth Down series with a laugh & cry friends-to-lovers romance between a no-strings-attached sports analyst and the sexiest damn tomboy he’s ever met.
It’s no secret that sports analyst Jackson Gray doesn’t do relationships—what is a secret, however, is the reason why. Jackson’s life is . . . complicated. And it doesn’t help that his most recent hands-off “friendship” is with the beautiful new sideline reporter he’s assigned to train. The woman’s like kryptonite. Not only is she his exact flavor of sweet, and cute-as-hell to boot, she also knows as much about football as he does. Talk about a turn-on. Like it or not though, Jackson has to remind himself that sex is the only thing he has to offer. It’s a reality of his life he’s always simply accepted.
Leila Hart’s growing friendship with Jackson is something she doesn’t want to risk, no matter how unbelievably seductive the reward. Becoming an NFL sportscaster has always been the goal, and thanks to Jackson’s fierce support and mentoring, it all finally seems within reach. Problem is, a girl can only take so much of his sexy-as-sin voice whispering hot, dirty football stats in her ear all day long. She’d love nothing more than to succumb, but Leila knows a workplace romance with Jackson is a disaster waiting to happen, especially for a woman in her field with ambitious dreams . . .
And hidden secrets of her own.
