Playing by the Rules (Miami Piranhas Book 3) by Beth Bolden
Ex-quarterback Davis Abernathy is on his last chance.
If he strikes out as Paxton’s coach, he’s done getting back on the field, and done standing on the sidelines.
What Davis doesn’t anticipate the irresistible way they’ll be drawn together. He never could have predicted such a fierce and uncontrollable yearning—or that Pax would feel the same.
It should be easy to remember rules aren’t meant to be broken, and certain lines shouldn’t be crossed, but the only thing that’s easy is falling totally, completely in love with Pax.
As Davis falls harder, Pax succeeding becomes just as important—and maybe more so—than resurrecting his own career. If he messes this up, his last chance isn’t all he’ll be sacrificing.
What he should be is focused on being the perfect mentor. But what he wants is Pax in his bed, Pax in his life, and more impossibly, to win Pax’s heart forever.
