Her brother Beaux has always been able to rely on his sister, she practically brought him up, foregoing everything she had to in order to ensure that he was able to achieve his goals, and now he is the star quarterback for the Raleigh Rough Riders, he is ready to repay her dedication, so unbeknown to her he buys her a property and gives her the opportunity to kick start her business.
Everything seems to happen all at once for Shannon because no sooner has she gotten her head around the fact that she is not only single again but she now has a few short weeks to get her business off the ground but she also comes face to face with Beaux’s teammate…the delicious Oliver Powell.
Now getting involved with Oliver is a minefield, after all Beaux has to work with him and add to that the fact that the delightful Mr Powell has a reputation that definitely precedes him but there is just something about him that has her struggling to keep her distance…and the feeling is most definitely mutual. So they strike a bargain, a friends with benefits arrangements so to speak that will last the preseason with no expectations and no foul come the day they call time.
They were so sure that they could handle the passion between them without there being any ill effects and like Shannon, Oliver had been down the commitment path before and had his fingers burned, so I have everything crossed that they actually knew what they were doing because otherwise it was going to get very, very messy indeed both on and off the field!Read more ›
Oliver is the star player tight end on the Raleigh Rough Riders team. After being severely broken by his first love and now ex-wife so he stays clear of any relationship. He is happy to be a player on both on the field and off. That is until he meets new quarterback, Beau’s older sister, Shannon. She is a total knockout and he set in place a plan of attack to get sexy Shannon in his bed.
Shannon has recently moved to Raleigh to go live near her brother after her snake of an ex cheated on her in their bed! Always having looked out for others she now resolves to take something from her new freedom and first is a no ties sexual interaction. When she meets Oliver who she has always had a crush on and he makes her an offer, she definitely is taking this chance with both hands and from what she has heard of this sexy sportsman, she will definitely need two hands!
This was a wonderfully sexy and engaging sports romance. I loved the sexual tension between Shannon and Oliver and how this slowly built to something so much more once Oliver let down his protective wall. The angst was fabulously provided with the inclusion of the exes both making an appearance who both had me boo-hissing at the kindle.
Overall a great start to this new series and I shall look forward to the next books. Four stars.
Dirty Player is told from dual perspectives from the lead characters, Shannon and Oliver. Shannon is the sister of Oliver’s new teammate, Beaux, and from the moment they meet you know there is a chemistry there that is just waiting to heat up (and trust me when it heats up, it heats up!). Both characters were strong and knew there own minds but have suffered emotionally from past relationships, something that is dealt with in the book. Throughout the book you could really feel every raw emotion the characters went through, especially Shannon.
Dirty Player is well written with a great flow to it. What I really liked about Dirty Player was that, although it was a sports romance, it didn’t feel like an overly typical sports romance with the maturity and commitment of the male lead character. Yes, he had some typical sports player traits but it all felt very real and the pace of development in relationship was incredibly well paced at a very realistic rate. In terms of the plot, it was good but a little predictable, however, with the quality of the writing and execution of the story it doesn’t lose too much. The majority of the book is relatively light hearted but some drama and angst crops up, especially towards the end of the book. This can be read as a standalone as it has an epilogue to give a HEA ending, rounding off Shannon and Oliver’s story fully.
Overall, I would definitely recommend this book!
