Stacy Travis ➠ He’s a Player




BLURB

To the world, he’s a sexy soccer superstar.
To me, he’s the arrogant jerk who broke my teenage heart–and my new fake fiancé.
The last time I saw Tim Cheltenham, he was an eighteen-year-old soccer hottie with an irresistible English accent, a painfully gorgeous face, and an enormous . . . ego.
Fifteen years later, with a medical degree under my belt and a new dream job with The Strikers soccer team—his team—I’m not about to let Tim’s bad attitude and grumpy scowl ruin it for me.
But when my chauvinistic boss implies that he doesn’t trust single women to stay on the job long-term, I panic and tell him I’m engaged. And to my surprise, it’s Tim who comes to my rescue, offering to play my fake fiancé if I’ll do him a favor–cover up the truth about his injury.
The lie could derail both our careers, and I’ve got no desire to spend more time than necessary in Tim’s surly presence. And falling for him again? Ha! That’s never going to happen.
So with my job on the line, I say yes. Now, the more time I spend with Tim, the more I sense a softer side beneath those chiseled muscles and broody exterior. But the more I understand him, the harder it is to pretend that we’re just for show.
And when a rival player threatens to expose our secret, I’m terrified I’ll lose everything.
They say you have to fake it to make it. But what happens when love is the goal?

RELEASE DATE: November 15, 2022

New to me author. I have read one of her books but it’s been a very long time and I do not remember enough to know the style so I am just diving in blind. The author actually send me an ARC (not a sign up).

First of the writing style of this author is not my 100% i know that we can open up to new styles but me being a mood reader it makes it hard for me to adapt right away. That said this was a fun read. The H&H have a history and 15 years later they are in a forced proximity-work related relationship. The hero has a background is all I will say and the Heroine kind of holds the key to his future. This is a very slow burn and I do ejoy those, there is always the build up to the first touch and kiss. The fun part about all this is that the heroine is now the hero’s fake fiance. I had a lot of fun seeing these two play around one another and then the realization hits. I am glad I gave this a chance, will be reading more form this author to hopefully get a little more familiar with the style. Thank you to the author for providing me with a free ARC version of this book.
