Even one-night stands deserve a second chance in New York Times bestselling author Rachel Van Dyken’s novel of sporting desire.
What else can a virgin do when she’s ditched at the altar? Seattle heiress Mackenzie Dupont is treating herself to a single-girl honeymoon in Mexico and a desire to relinquish her innocence to a gorgeous one-night stand. Fake names. True pleasure. But when she wakes up alone, Mackenzie realizes just how much anger is left in her broken heart.
Suffering a tragic personal loss, pro soccer player Slade Rodriguez has his reasons for vanishing without a goodbye. Right or wrong, he’s blaming the beautiful and infuriating stranger he never wants to see again. They’re both in for a shock when Mackenzie shows up as his new personal assistant. And they both have a lot to learn about each other. Because they share more than they could possibly know, including a common enemy who’s playing his own games. And he’s not afraid to get dirty.
Now there’s only one way Mackenzie and Slade can win: to trust in each other and to stop hiding from the lies they’ve told, the secrets they’ve kept, the mistakes they’ve made, and the attraction that still burns between them.
The first in a new series and what can I say... once again I am drawn in from the first couple of pages. Mack is a character who most can relate too. Trying to please everyone until a breaking point that she finally decides to live for herself. Slade you feel bad for, then you want to punch then you fall in love with him! Both of them are overcoming their own obstacles but together they heal.
The one thing that I always look forward to with a Rachel Van Dyken Book is the humor. Although this is romance, Rachel give us something to truly laugh out loud too. This makes me feel like it’s more real and I enjoy the laughs. Mack and Slade together are perfect they both play well off one another and have great chemistry. I highly recommend this book and I am really hoping for Jagger and Matt books.
