Book Blurb:

Quarterback Alex Dare, had it all — an all-star football career with the Tampa Breakers and his choice of willing women — until a severe injury forces him into early retirement. When he is offered a ground-breaking position with a rival team, he’s intrigued, but there’s a catch. He’ll be working alongside the same woman he hasn’t been able to get out of his head for too long.

Social worker Madison Evans grew up in foster homes and knows first hand what it means to have-not. She isn’t impressed by Alex Dare’s wealth or charm. Not since she fell hard for him once before, only to discover she was just one of his too-easy conquests. This time around Madison refuses to succumb to Alex so easily.

But Alex wants Madison. And if there is one thing Alex does well, it’s to get what he wants. The playboy athlete must prove he’s got game in more places than on the field. He means to prove that he’s a changed man but no sooner does he begin to break through Madison’s defenses when a new opportunity comes knocking and threatens her new-found trust. Can he make Madison take a risk and dare to love?

Excerpt:

“I get why you walked out on Riley after she landed herself in the hospital,” Alex admitted as the guy behind the bar slid a tumbler toward Ian.

His brother took a long sip.  “Can’t say it was one of my finer moments.  Looking back, I don’t think it was the right way to handle things.”

Alex raised an eyebrow.  “What would’ve worked better?”  They both knew Riley had been as stubborn in her own beliefs as Madison now was in hers.

“I should have cuffed her to the bed until she saw reason.”  Ian lifted his glass.  “A little dominance once in awhile doesn’t hurt.”

Alex shook his head and grinned.  “Probably more than I want to know about your relationship, but I get your point.”  He swallowed a gulp, closing his eyes at the soothing burn.  “I threatened to take her over my knee,” he muttered.

Ian shrugged.  “So do it.”
