“Please let me play. You know I can score,” Gina says.

Coach shakes his head. “If you get reinjured we lose you for the next game.”

“If we lose this game, we don’t get a next game.”

“Take a seat. You aren’t going in.”

“Please let me go in. The trainer says I’m fine,” Gina tries again.

“It ain’t happening. Take a seat.”

He’s cocky, dirty, and demanding. He’s a walking wet dream.

He’s also mine. Or at least he’s pretending to be…


Notorious British bad boy footballer Dylan Pierce is scorching hot…

and he knows it.

With a mouth as filthy as his reputation, linking myself with him could ruin my public image.

But showbusiness is all about risk, and as a down-on-my-luck actress,

this could be the break my career needs.


Brooke Sullivan is my most difficult opponent yet.

Being seen with a good girl like her may give me a chance at Hollywood stardom,

but I never expected to crave this feisty redhead.

I can’t lose my focus—I always keep my eye on the ball,

I’m always match-fit.

And winning her is the most important game I’ve ever played.
