She'll teach him the art of seduction one play at a time...

Publicist Aubrey Cooper never should have crossed the line. After all, pro football player Flynn Foley is her client. But something about this mouth-wateringly-hot, clean-cut athlete makes Aubrey imagine all kinds of X-rated fantasies. And it only takes one game-changing play―and one night―to turn the tables from strictly business to very, very personal…

Flynn has maintained a no-sexy-distractions policy for his entire pro career. Aubrey is exactly the kind of distraction he was trying to avoid, and she's the one he can't resist. When the media catches wind of their naughty little liaison, however, Aubrey's boss steps in to make them an official couple. What Flynn doesn't know is that Aubrey is forced to fake the relationship―or lose her job. Now Aubrey must hide the truth…even as she begins to fall for Flynn.
There were many parts of this story that I loved, but there were some that I really didn't like as well.  Aubrey and Flynn both work for the Hawks football team - so a relationship is off limits.  But they've been dancing around the flirtations for awhile so their close friends aren't too surprised when something happens.  Their bosses are quite upset though and set up a plan for them to have a "pretend" relationship.

This is the part of the story line I just didn't get.   Why ask them to have a pretend relationship when they are basically starting a real one?  It just didn't seem to flow very well and I knew it was there just to cause a conflict later - which of course it did.  It seemed like it was a conflict just for the sake of having a conflict.  There were plenty of other issues that could have been used to cause the drama and intensity that you see in romance novels.  Oh, and the whole star football player still being a virgin just seemed a bit unbelievable in general.

What I really liked was the way the side characters interacted with our main characters and the obvious chemistry between Flynn and Aubrey.  They were made for each other.  They had sex a little too often - I wanted more story, but the story that was there was very well written and I was rooting for them to make it work long term the whole way through.

My favorite part of the book was the final football game.  Karen Erickson really built up the intensity and I felt like I was there cheering for the team right along with everyone else.  I held my breath and crossed my fingers and squealed a little inside when they made a good play.  It was a great ending and a very emotional one for everybody in such a great way.

Moments of Beauty
J.B. Heller
Publication date: March 23rd 2017
Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance
Ugly. It’s the only word to describe my upbringing. It drove my need to capture every moment of beauty I could find. A glimpse of a mother’s love. A feather floating in the breeze. A ray of sunshine emerging on a rainy day.  And then there was her, Eliza Quinn, she signified everything I didn’t deserve. She showed me more beauty than I ever thought possible. And I took it all, despite knowing I was going to leave her, and never come back.  Leaving her five years ago was my biggest mistake, and my greatest regret. Now I need to make amends. I thought leaving her was the hardest thing I’d ever have to do, but that was before I knew I had to win her back.Add to Goodreads
