After a case ended badly for Rebecca Carson, she’s losing her mind sitting around her apartment waiting on her superiors to allow her to return to work. Since she was a teenager, the only thing she’d ever wanted was to join the FBI. Now that dream was in danger.
Gage Daniels has made a pretty good life for himself. A nice house. A career he loves. As a professional football player, he’s used to getting almost everything he’d ever want with just the snap of his fingers. This includes women. A well-timed smile is usually all it takes to attract the opposite sex, especially in Nashville.
When a stalker threatens Gage, the team owner calls an old friend, Rebecca’s ex-partner Travis Hansen, to help protect his star quarterback and find the person responsible. Hansen offers Rebecca the job, and she jumps at the chance. It’s work, and it will get her out of her apartment. How bad can it be?
Posing as Gage’s girlfriend, however, isn’t as easy as it seems. The man is relentless. Rebecca must work to protect Gage while staving off his advances. She’s there to do a job, nothing more. The last thing she wants is to be another notch on a hotshot athlete’s belt.
As the stalker continues to up the ante, Rebecca finds it harder and harder to keep her distance from Nashville’s star quarterback. He isn’t what she expected in one of the city’s most notorious playboys. Now all she has to do is keep him safe until they can find his stalker, and hope she doesn’t lose her heart in the process.
Sherri explains her love of football, and her favorite football team.
I grew up watching football with my dad. He was a diehard Cleveland Browns fan. Every Sunday, we’d sit in front of the television and watch the game.
My favorite player back then was number twenty-one, Eric Metcalf, followed closely by Bernie Kosar. It was the eighties, and back then the Browns were making the playoffs almost every year. I remember one time an announcer saying they were the winningest team to never go to the Superbowl.
That was a long time ago, of course, and I don’t always find myself sitting in my living room on Sunday’s screaming at the T.V. screen, although I do still watch football fairly often. My husband is a forty-niner fan, so whenever they’re on, he has the game on, and I usually end up watching most of it even if I’m in the other room trying to work.
While I still root for the Browns today, I’m not as dedicated a fan as I used to be. I catch games when I can, and if the Browns are playing I still cheer for them.
I’m not as emotionally invested as I used to be. It’s rare for me to yell at the television now-a-days. While I have my favorites, in the end, I like to watch a good game. There is nothing like sitting on the edge of your seat, your heart pounding, as the clock ticks down to those final seconds.
