A terrific British romance. Riddled with all the British-isms, a woman can ask for complete with a hunky and cocky football player and a shy girl.
Jude is well on his way to being not only a professional football player but one of the greats in the sport. Too bad his hijinks and antics get in the way and causes doubt in the minds of his coaches and team owners. He has to calm down–Jude doesn’t know how. He wonders if the sweet sew girl can help him. All the guys at the academy have tried to get her attention let alone bag her–she shuts them all down. Perhaps she’s a challenge that can distract him enough to stay out of trouble.
Aria has a crap life while her classmates/former friends are off at uni–Aria is working two jobs in order to care for her ailing father. She’s really not complaining–he took care of her all her life only fair she does the same for him. Working at the academy in the sew house and her second shift janitorial job, she has to deal with hormonal football players. One of the many ways she tried to discourage them is by wearing baggy clothes to hide her figure. Aria loves to sing while cleaning the locker rooms. This is where she literally walks into Jude freaking Davies showering. The rumors about his…were definitely true. But she refuses to be just another notch on his bed post. Besides he won’t be at the academy much longer before he’s called up to the professional league full time. He treats her differently. She doesn’t put up with his crap. She doubts that Jude has ever taken anyone else to meet his brothers. But what happens when he moves to London? How can Jude keep himself out of trouble without Aria by his side?

About the Book:
They call him the second coming.
Of honor for British football.
Of God in an athlete’s body.
Of every English woman’s fantasy.
Jude Davies is my country’s prodigy on the pitch. More famous than the nobility in Buckingham Palace, he and his merry band of scoundrels rule the Rogue Football Academy and the London nightlife scene alike.
And now, he’s aiming his well-honed set of skills directly at me. His devilish charm is lethal, but with the tragic hand life has dealt me, distractions like him aren’t an option.
Plus, we’re only playing a game. One of convenience, where he needs me to save his reputation, and I need his money to save the one person I love.
Until he wraps me around that immoral finger.
Until I crave that reckless, wild high he provides.
Until I hope for a future that will never happen.
That’s the thing about going toe-to-toe with the next football legend. He’s faster, stronger, and will destroy me every time.
Author of romance novels such as Red Card and Privileged, Carrie Aarons writes books that are just as swoon-worthy as they are sarcastic. A former journalist, she prefers the stories she dreams up, and the yoga pant dress code, much better.
When she isn’t writing, Carrie is busy binging reality TV, having a love/hate relationship with cardio, and trying not to burn dinner. She lives in the suburbs of New Jersey with her husband, daughter and dog.
