Title: Falling for the Player
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.

Three years ago while attending University of South Carolina the unexpected happened to Max and Patrick. A chance meeting at a bar that turned into a one incredibly hot one night stand also set the bar for every encounter they had with another after that. Their paths never crossed again while at USC though. Patrick went on to be drafted by the Packers and Max found himself swept up into the constant strenuous studies of law school with little time to date.
Fresh out of law school, about to sit for the bar exam Max has returned home to practice law at his father’s prestigious law firm. Max now has a whole new set of obligations to not only meet but exceed. Running into the very sexy one night stand he never forgot isn’t exactly in his father’s plans for him but Max has never been able to keep that running back from running across his mind.
Running his family business and raising his very big little brother was not in Patrick’s five year plan when he first meet Max three years ago. Things change and not always for the better. Patrick’s life has definitely taken a downward tumble from NFL football star. He isn’t angry or bitter about it though. Patrick has kept the family business going, kept its employees with paychecks, pays his bills, and does his best where his little brother Liam is concerned. It’s a good life albeit a lonely one.
I was pleased by the fact that this really isn’t a sports romance. There’s a football player on the cover so I was prepared for a sports romance but Patrick is 100% former ball player. The former part is never really touched on either which pleased me greatly. The big thing with their relationship and its problems really is pride, wealth, and an asshole father not understanding his son isn’t going to magically be attracted to women one day no matter how convenient that will be for big papa. Jessica Lee packages it together in a manner that totally works as a believable road to happily ever after.
