Get Ready to Play Rough

Shay Beckham grew up idolizing her brother’s best friend, star quarterback Joe Reilly. There was no one in their Texas town who had the moves to match Joe on or off the field. Years later, he’s still a player who has what it takes to drive any hot-blooded woman wild. But Shay isn’t a kid with a bad case of hero-worship anymore. She’s grown-up and independent, with her feet on the ground and a serious head on her shoulders. If she could just say the same for Joe.

It’s been fifteen years, but Joe Reilly hasn’t forgotten the skinny little kid who used to follow him around like a shadow. What he can’t get over is that the skinny shadow has grown into one hell of an incredible woman. One any man in his right mind would kill to get his hands on. And one who seems to be completely immune to him. He knows he and Shay could have something special together. If he could only convince her he’s about more than just the game.

~*~*~*~ My Review ~*~*~*~

My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I have to admit I am a fan of sports romance even thought sports is not my thing.  The sexy all-male hotness of the heroes just keeps me coming back for more...

I love it when a book can capture my attention, pull me in and let me get lost in it while I am reading it.  For me Forward Pass did just that.  It gave me a hot guy to drool over and a heroine to cheer on along with a great story and some hot love scenes.

Shay is a graphic design artist who has decided New York City life isn't for her so she is now telecommuting for her job and living in her brother's house temporarily until she finds a place of her own..  She is a huge football fan and has been since she used to trail around after her big brother, who she idolized, and his team mates when he was in high school..  Shay has had a crush on his best friend Joe for years but resigned herself that nothing would ever come of it, why would a womanizer like him be interested in her.

Joe is a Professional Footblall player who turned sports caster after his career as a quarterback ended from an injury, now he has business in San Antonio and his best friend from high school has offered for him to stay at his place while he is in town.  Being in the same house with Shay is more temptation than they can handle but will the mutual attraction they feel will be a challenge for them to navigate when the past resurfaces
