Add in a former hot college and pro football star back to resurrect his university’s program and a savvy spor6ts reporter looking to put a disastrous marriage behind her and rebuild her shattered career, and you get instant fireworks, a hunger for winning, off-the-charts sex .

And most of all, who says second time around romances can’t be…well,,,sexy!

Meet Duncan “Hatch” Hatcher and Olivia Cole and watch the fireworks!

Just a little taste for you:

Every move after that, to her, seemed to have some kind of sexual connotation. The air between them vibrated with the electricity sparking back and forth. By the time he paid the check and they left the restaurant, every pulse in her body pounded, her breasts ached, and her teeny tiny thong was soaked. She wanted to hurry home and take a cold shower before she did something really stupid.

In the truck, he turned on the radio and found a station playing oldies rock music that he tuned low. They rode in a silence that was more electric than uncomfortable, especially when he reached over and took her hand in his, giving it a gentle squeeze.

When they reached her townhouse, he again lifted her from the cab and walked her to the door, holding her hand. When she had the door open, he turned her to face him and studied her face for a long time. She waited, wondering if she had the willpower not to cross that line from professional to personal and how much damage she’d do if she did.

“You have to be the sexiest sports reporter I’ve ever met. Please don’t slap my face, okay?”

She could have turned away, but she couldn’t find the willpower. The kiss was soft and gentle, a mere brush of lips, a touch of flesh. Then it was over, but she wanted more. A lot more. She could feel this spinning out of control, and she was powerless to stop it.

“Invite me in, Olivia. Please.”

She was crazy to do this. She hadn’t recovered from the burns left by her relationship with Daniel. Why on earth was she looking to jump into the fire again? She’d never in a million years considered herself open to some kind of a second chance at a true relationship. But idiot that she was, she didn’t even hesitate, just nodded, and ushered him inside.

She didn’t do this. Never had, even before she met Daniel. She was never sexually impulsive, certainly not where something important was concerned. But now she didn’t seem able to help herself. She tried to remind herself not to screw up her situation, but her long months of need coalesced in the center of her body. She was about to do something stupid.

She nodded. “Yes. Come in.”

Full Description:

Former pro football player and coach Duncan “Hatch” Hatcher fumbled his career and marriage. Now divorced and ready to tackle his future, he has an opportunity to redeem himself as coach of his college alma mater’s football team. But how can he turn the team’s losing streak around and keep the secret of his downfall buried when the school agrees to a documentary that will allow a lovely journalist to dig her way into his past…and into his heart?

Olivia Grant’s ex-husband almost wrecked her journalism career while he definitely did a number on her self-esteem. The documentary on Duncan Hatcher is the perfect way to rebuild both. As a freshman in college, she’d had a crush on the senior football hero, but he hadn’t known she existed. She never expects the sparks that fly between them as they work on the project nor the struggles they must face if they both want to win.
