They're playing to win.Sports reporter Maddie Leclair has finally landed her dream job--covering the major league team, the Philadelphia Patriots. But she needs to prove herself, which means scoring an interview with the most private and elusive athlete in baseball, Patriots' superstar Jake Miller.
On the rebound from a bad injury, the last thing Jake needs is a pushy female reporter distracting him. But one look at Maddie and he knows he's in trouble. He finds himself trying for a different kind of play, one that involves bedrooms and not baseball stats. Despite the risks to both their careers if they're caught in a hot affair, Jake is playing to win.
