Summary (from Amazon):
The last thing event planner Tara Lincoln needs is the jet-set lifestyle of a football pro like Mick Riley; even though their steamy and passionate one-night stand proved that Mick is an all-star both on the field and in the bedroom.

Tara played the game of love once and lost big, and she doesn't intend to put herself out there again, especially with a certified heartbreaker. But when Mick sets his mind to win, nothing will stop him. And he has the perfect play in mind to catch this sultry vixen.

Event planner Tara meets Mick Riley, pro football player, at one of the parties she planned. Tara knows who Mick is because she's a football fan and not to mention the fact that Mick's on the cover of every tabloid with at least one hot woman on his arm. So when Mick flirts with Tara, she doesn't believe he's genuine. After all, how could he be interested in someone like her? But Mick is interested. There's something about Tara that calls to him in a way no other woman has. But as they grow closer, will Tara be able to balance her relationship, work and her son, and will Mick be able to give up his life of parties and women for a lifetime with Tara?

Jack Burton is my go-to author when I'm in the mood for a sports romance. She's written several about different sports, and all of them feature big, hot, muscular men, which is a plus in my book. I really enjoyed reading about Tara and Mick. Tara is an independent woman who knows what she wants and needs, and I liked that Tara has a fourteen year old son, because it added dimension to her character, and the scenes with her son were fun to read, especially seeing Mick interact with him. At the beginning Mick is portrayed as a bachelor who sleeps with many beautiful woman, but he never even looks at other woman after he meets Tara. Some readers might not like the fact that Mick pushes Tara into a relationship with him and doesn't take no for an answer, but I thought it came across as more more romantic and less pushy.

Overall, I recommend this to anyone looking for a well written sports romance.
