After a family tragedy, former football hero Jack McGarry keeps the world at arm’s length—a challenge now that his PR firm has moved to neighborly Fool’s Gold, California.
Larissa Owens knows where she stands—Jack sees her as just another one of the guys. No matter what her heart wishes, Jack’s her boss, not her boyfriend. But then Larissa’s big secret is revealed…by her mother!
When Jack discovers the truth about Larissa’s feelings, her touch suddenly becomes tantalizing, and he’s not sure he wants to resist. But if he gives in to desire, heartache is sure to follow. Friendship or true love—will Jack go for the ultimate play?
I’m such a fan of this series and I couldn’t wait to get to Jack and Larissa’s story. It was everything I’d hoped it would be and more.
Jack is one of the ex-athletes that run Score. The company recently relocated to Fool’s Gold. Larissa is Jack’s girl Friday. She’s also an almost licensed masseuse. She’s an animal rescuer and all around do gooder. She also comes to realize that she’s in love with Jack. That has disaster written all over it because Jack is a commitment phobe.
Jack and Larissa;s story touched me. Larissa with her huge heart and Jack, with his emotional baggage. I’ll be honest, Jack was guilty of a great deal of douchebaggery here and it brought the rating down for me. Otherwise, this book was perfect. This is a great series and everyone should read it.
