Publisher's Summary

"No strings, no rings." That's Luke Archer's motto. As the champion quarterback for the New York Empire - not to mention a self-made billionaire - Luke has given up on serious relationships. Women only want him for one thing: the thrill of being with a superstar. And he likes it that way too. But when his best friend announces he's retiring from football to spend time with his wife and kids, Luke feels like he's missing out on something much bigger than his career.
The assistant concierge in Luke's luxury high-rise, Miranda Tate fled her family's dairy farm to come to the bright lights of New York City. She works hard to move up and sends her spare earnings home to her brother. When she and Luke meet, there's an instant sexual attraction which turns steamy quickly, but they're in completely different leagues. Could Miranda be just the woman Luke needs to win the most important game of his life?

Really good

I loved the characters and the story line. I was cheering the whole time for Luke and Miranda. And as cliche as it sounds money cannot buy you happiness or love. Good read highly recommended­čśŐ

QB almost tosses girl instead of football!

Star quarterback Luke Archer sees the handwriting on the wall after his best friend marries and announces his retirement and the handwriting becomes even clearer when he's injured during a game. Sidelined he pursues Miranda Tate, a small town girl trying to make it as a concierge in Luke's NYC's high rise apartment building.

This book is a little more serious than I thought it was going to be. Luke is a complicated man just trying to figure out where he belongs in the world after his football career ends, and if he can find someone who loves him for the person he is and not the superstar that people see. It's interesting to see Luke and Miranda build upon the instant attraction they feel towards one another, to something deeper and real.

This is the first audiobook from Nancy Herkness I've listened to, but it won't be the last! As a matter of fact I have to download the first book series because All Star is the second.

I've listened to a couple of audiobooks from narrator Lauren Ezzo and I put her right in the middle range as a narrator but I feel like she's getting better and I would definitely buy a book that she narrates.
