She’s hiding from everyone…
I don’t need a happily ever after filled with fake promises, animosity and eventually a divorce to be content. I’m living the dream…my dream, regardless of what anyone thinks of me. My meager life was perfect until a cocky football player wormed his way into my existence.
Once upon a time, I played an unconscious role in my own life, a mistake I have no plans of repeating. I pride myself with my outspoken and frequently excessive nature. It’s the consistent reminder of the person I refuse to become ever again.
He’s the ultimate playboy…
Life is perfect. I’ve lived and breathed football since I was a kid, and now I’m making millions playing in the NFL. I keep women around for one reason, but never the same one. The only attachments I need are family and friends but life has a bizarre way of proving a person wrong. When a concussion leaves my best-friend’s life spinning out of control, the last thing I expected was to meet an outrageous woman who leaves me begging for more.
She lives in New York.
I live in Arizona.
She promised me one night, but I discovered that’s not enough. Now, I need to figure out if I’m a pro off the field because I’m about to play the biggest game of my life.

“You want to tell me why you’re here?” She tilts her head back, gracing me with the view of those beautiful blue eyes.
My lips quirk up into a smile. “I told you already. My dick misses you. I tried to tell him you aren’t interested in a repeat, but he wasn’t convinced.”
“You’re seriously talking about your dick as though it’s a person? I thought only horny teenagers did shit like that?” She raises an eyebrow before pushing herself off my lap.
“What can I say, around you that’s exactly how I feel.” I might be smirking, but I’m not joking. All I have to do is think about her and I’m rock hard. “I’ve already agreed to be your dirty little secret, so what’s the big deal? I’m going to be in town for…a few more days. A week or so tops, so I don’t really see what the problem is.”
Her eyes dart around the room before finally stopping on me. “I don’t think it’s a good idea.”
“Why not?” I counter. “We’ve already been together, and it’s not like I’m asking you to skip work or even fucking date me.” I attempt to keep the frustration out of my voice, but this woman is starting to drive me crazy.
“Look, it’s not you, it’s me—” She stops talking when I fall back onto her bed in laughter. I end up laughing so hard I have to wipe my eyes.
“Do you have any idea how many times I’ve had to say that? Shit, the irony here is classic.”
“I’m serious, Girard.”
“So am I, Davis.” I hate it when she calls me Girard. I want to be more than just a football player in her eyes.
“You’re just not my type,” she adds in a lame attempt to prove some point about us not being together.
“I’m not asking to marry you, Davis. I just want to fuck your brains out for a few days before I fly back to my side of the country.”

I loved both Jake and Lacey when I read Living with Regret, so with the news that they were getting their
own book I was very excited!
I loved this authors writing, she has a way with words that holds you captive. This was a very emotional and passionate read that theft me feeling raw in parts.
This couple met when their best friends were trying to figure out their own relationship. But there was definitely a spark between them, one that is hard to ignore but with fact that they live so far apart it was never a problem. But now Jake is in her home town and their attraction is far from mediocre. One night was all she offered...but one night was all it took for Jake to realise he wanted more but just how much more was Lacey willing to give.
Lacey is a junior Lawyer so her smart mouth and fiery attitude come as no surprise. She is protective of the ones she loves and she has her walls built high and strong.
Jake is a star football player and is living the life. He is also a ladies man but has never had the desire to have a relationship. After watching his friend fight for his life and his woman, Jake sees thing in a different light and now with Lacey on his radar he is in a whole lot of trouble.
Lacey is stuck in the past and Jake just wants to offer her a future!!!
Can this couple overcome everything and get their HEA?
