I’ve signed numerous players to my family’s agency—I assumed winning over my next client would be just as easy.

The last thing I expected was to run into the boy who took my first kiss and broke my heart: only now Drew Bowman is all grown up.

Sexy. Scandal-tainted. Second-string. The crush I never got over.

I tell myself work is the reason I can’t get him out of my head. I tell him his talent far outweighs his position, and I know I can help. I lie and lie, because admitting that I want a second chance at my first love is impossible.

Some lines cannot be crossed, and ours was drawn in the sand years ago.

***
I’m supposed to hate her.

I’ve been told so time and again for ten years - her father ruined our family, smeared my name before my career even began.

But that’s not what I’m feeling now.

Brexton Kincade just strode out of my memories and onto my field.

Driven. Determined. Grown up. The Capulet to my Montague.

Being with her would be an unforgivable sin against my father, but I can’t resist the pull between us. Even if it means hiding what we have. Even if it means confronting the secrets I’ve always feared were lies.

Hard to Score is the 3rd book featuring the Kincade sisters; this time, it’s Brexton’s turn. Brexton and Drew’s families were tight when they were kids-they even vacationed together! Brexton develops a huge crush on Drew, but he kind of crushes her by putting her firmly in the friend zone. Then, scandal strikes Drew’s family, and tragedy strikes Brexton’s. Years pass and their paths never cross, despite being in the same industry.

Drew is still carrying a lot of hurt over the scandal that ended his father’s career; he has even let it affect his career! He is a great QB, but never gets playing time. He never even fights for himself! Brexton’s reentry into his life pushes him to want more, both professionally and personally. Brexton, despite swearing off men temporarily, is in love with love. She isn’t jaded like her sisters and she really believes in true love. She never got over her crush on Drew (and his subsequent friend zoning). I loved her! Drew has a LOT going on in his family and I understood his caution. But, I so wanted him to FIGHT!

Hard to Score has childhood friends/crushes, family scandal, and football! Fans of authors like Sarina Bowen, Elle Kennedy, and Helena Hunting will love this series and Hard to Score.
