Falling for the Player by Jessica Lee


From Entangled Embrace:

Bad boy and former NFL running back Patrick Guinness is tired of meaningless sex. Ever since his scorching hot one-night stand three years ago, no one has interested him. So when Max Segreti wanders into his mechanic shop—and his life again—Patrick can't stop thinking about the totally-out-of-his-league law grad and the possibility of getting him out of his system once and for all…
Max Segreti has spent his entire life doing what his father wants. But when he runs into the hotter-than-hell player he’s never been able to forget, he’s not thinking about studying for the bar. A distraction is the last thing he needs, but after an encounter leaves him wanting more, Max embraces the chaos that Patrick brings…even as he knows it can’t last. They're too different to ever have a future together.

Imagine having a smoking hot encounter with your college's star football player, who then goes on to the NFL.  You're the nerdy guy studying too hard, being forced to go out by your BFF, then you end up hooking up with the football god.  One night to fantasize about over the long, lonely nights of undergrad, then law school.  Then, you're having car trouble, walk into the shop to get it fixed and there he is - the football god.  

Patrick is the bisexual football god and Max is the sort-of our, sort-of closeted geek fresh out of law school.  Their reunion at the shop leads to more and these two have to figure out of the blue collar ex-jock and the rich brainiac can find a way to make it work.  

Falling for the Player is a charming romance.  Of course, Patrick and Max make all kinds of mistakes along the way and deal with interference from both of their families.  Falling for the Player has the fantasy most of us enjoyed and the satisfying HEA we all crave.
