Publisher's Summary

Two people, two tragedies, two deep, devastating secrets....
Griff Montgomery is the headline-making, heart-breaking star quarterback of the Kings - a six-foot-four-inch, 33-year-old womanizer. Lauren Farraday is a beautiful young interior designer, bitterly scarred by divorce, whose life is falling apart. Though they violently oppose one another in court over her beloved pug (she thinks he's arrogant and conceited, and he thinks she's a bitch on wheels), something happens....
These are the bare bones of this sizzling romance, riddled with passion - the first in a brand new series that'll tantalize football fans and have listeners glued to every word and on the edge of their seats!
Griff looks like a super hero with his tousled, mahogany hair, dazzling smile, dark, sexy eyes, and a body that does something indescribable to a tight pair of jeans. Though Lauren's sworn off men forever, one look sends shivers down her spine, making her feel lonelier than ever before. Her lustrous, long hair, sparkling green eyes, and nonstop curves make his fingers tingle at the thought of touching her. How do they deal with their cataclysmic attraction? Will they be able to drop their protective facades - his to camouflage his grief over his sister and her family, for whom he was a surrogate father, moving 3000 miles away.... And hers' to shield her from the incalculable loss of her husband and hoped for child?
For Griff, the thought of falling in love is as foreign as toe shoes and a tutu. For Lauren, it's like putting on cleats and a helmet and running 50 yards.... Can they, will they, risk it?
CAUTION: Book contains locker room language.

Wow! This was a good one.

Where does Griff Montgomery, Quarterback rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

The best so far. Couldn't stop listening and was kind of happy at the resolution of the plot yet sad when it was over.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Griff and Lauren. Both had "layers" of personality not just cardboard characters like so many romance novels. Oh...and the dog, Spike, that brought them together was adorable.

Which scene was your favorite?

Can't say...would be a "spoiler" One caution, though. The language was what you would expect to hear from from a male sports team. And, without giving too much away, the intimate scene were very realistic. They described in loving detail what lovers do to please each other. Erotic certainly but far from porn. In fact, I thought they were both beautiful and hot! However, prudish types might be uncomfortable with this kind of thing. Their loss.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Came close...took two days. Normally takes me five or six for a book this size.

Any additional comments?

Narrator was excellent. Really made the characters come alive. My only disappointment...the next book in the series is not in audio yet but a blurb at the end of the book said it would be coming soon. Can't wait!

How does a pug bring together a sexy interior designer and a hot professional football player?
Griff is having his house remodeled so he decides to rent while it is in progress. He finds a pug that looks lost and hungry. He takes him in names him Spike and falls in love.

Lauren is going through a very nasty divorce. She has to go off to take care of business with her ailing father. When Lauren returns, the house is empty. She calls the doggy daycare where her ex-was supposed to take Zander and finds he never arrived.

Long story short one day Lauren hears a dog bark and recognizes is, a battle ensues turning into a custody arrangement. Getting kicked out of his rental, he shows up at Laurens to rent from her and make their custody with Spike easier.

You're not a football fan, so you skipped across this title even though the cover is hot? Well go back and grab it! I'm not a big sports fanatic, but this story is more about Griff the man, than the game. Yes, there is a bit of the sport, but not much and it moves the story on. I really liked the love/ hate relationship between these two.
Another thing I like is that Lauren loves to cook, and we get a lot of description of he delicious meals. I could see and smell them!
Now for the sex... WOW! The fireworks between these two are better than any fourth of July!

If you like football, sexy quarterbacks, interior design, yummy food, cute pugs and hot sex, this is the book for you. And it's just the start... there is more sexy football hotness to come!
