The Raleigh Rough Riders are back, and this time Super Bowl Quarterback Beaux Hale finds himself playing the most important game of his life.
Every woman knows Beaux Hale is nothing but a player. Yet the first time he walks into Paige Halloway’s restaurant and flashes his sexy grin, she feels a heat between them spark. Too bad he opens his mouth and ruins it.
He may think his money, fame, and sexy looks will attract any woman—but he’s wrong.
Paige doesn’t have time for a man. She’s too busy keeping a roof over her head and taking care of her father to care about relationships.
Lucky for Beaux, he’s a man who's ready to use all the plays at his disposal. He didn’t bring his team a Super Bowl victory by giving up at the first block in his path—and Paige Halloway has just become his new long-game.
Beaux also knows that sometimes, in order to win and claim your prize, you have to get a little bit filthy.
Filthy Player is the second book in the Rough Riders series about hot football stars.
Beaux Hale is the hot newest signing to the team who lead them to victory last season. With the new season starting up, the team take some downtime in a local sports bar and it is where Beaux meets gorgeous Paige Halloway. He’d seen her waitressing in the bar before and she had something about her that drew Beaux to her. When the team sit in her service area Beau takes his chance but he didn’t recon on the sassy mouth or the brush off. Women usually threw themselves at him but Paige was throwing him a challenge, a challenge he cannot resist.
Paige is a hard worker. Having to give up her hopes of a career she has moved back to her hometown to look after her Dad after he suffers a stroke. Holding down two jobs is a hard slog but she needs to be able to support her father and the medical bills. It’s whilst doing her waitressing job that she comes into contact with the Raleigh Rough Riders and the sexy Beaux Hale. Her first impressions of him are to ignore his come ons but when he starts to show empathy and understand what she is going through she thinks she has him wrong and he is a nice guy. But when she overhears him saying something to his team mate she reacts in a most unexpected way! Thus begins the challenge of Paige trying to push him away and Beaux fighting to show her who he really is.
This was an instant hit from the start and already having met Beaux in the first book, I knew the woman for him would have to be strong, just like his sister and Paige definitely fit the role for him. I instantly liked her and her depth of responsibility she had for all around her, even her grouchy boss at the bar. But what I liked most about her was that she could accept when she was wrong and didn’t go all out to avoid or annoy Beaux to push him away. The build-up of their relationship was hot and sexy, even before the main show began! The intensity between them from the start was spellbinding.
This is one of those books that has you gripped from the start, in fact I read it in one sitting. I loved everything about it – the romance, the passion, the family background and even the sub plot of a stalker! Overall another great addition to the series and I can’t wait for the next! Five Stars.
