To win the game, they’ll have to risk losing their hearts…

When a bizarre child custody stipulation pits popular sports blogger Gracie Gable against football superstar Jake Malone, losing the battle for her twin nieces isn't the only thing Gracie has to worry about. Forced to live for three months under the same roof as the sexy tight end, will she fall prey to his flirtatious pursuit? Or worse, will the skeletons in her closet destroy her chance for the love and family she so desperately wants?

Neglected by his parents as a boy, Jake doesn’t believe in happily ever after. Yet living with Gracie and the twins might be enough to change his mind—and his womanizing ways. But when the press unearths a scandal from Gracie’s past, will he lose the one woman he was ready to open his heart to?

Feasted On: Players Series, Book 1 (Monday, October 26, 2015)
Reviewer: Jess @ From Me to You ... Book Reviews

4 out of 5 stars!! After Gracie learns that her brother-in-law prematurely passes away, she is all ready to take on the job of raising her six-year-old twin nieces. Yet, at the reading of the will she learns that she has to live with another relative (Jake -- who just happens to be the extremely hot football player she had an online argument with recently) for three months to earn the guardianship. However, with Gracie wanting to keep her life out of the spotlight, Jake’s life already in the spotlight, and dealing with this unique situation will she be able to keep her life on track and her heart in one piece at the same time? Or is this the beginning of something new for them all?

This energetic and enticing novel reels you in with its unique “family dynamic,” while capturing your interest with the mystery of Gracie’s paternity and Gracie & Jake growing relationship. I was riveted while laughing the whole way through. Gracie is a fun character who knows her mind and does anything she needs to protect her love ones. Jake is an “outlaw” who reforms in this novel and reading about him settling down was so sweet! Together they are unstoppable! I didn’t want to stop reading about their romance! In addition, I thoroughly enjoyed how this novel to set up for its series. It made me excited to see where it’ll take us next!

I recommend this novel to those looking for a contemporary sports romance!

Mackenzie Crowne's To Win Her Love (Thursday, August 6, 2015)
Reviewer: Carol Smith

“Gridiron Girl” meets the “Outlaw” and do sparks fly?? Not the
kind one would think.
Gracie Gable, the “Gridiron Girl”, is a female blogger who
discusses football: game predictions, stats and the players.
Gracie’s sister, Sarah helped raise Gracie when their mother
died and there had never been a known father. Now Sarah has
passed with a promise that Gracie help take care of her
twin girls.
The “ Outlaw” is football player, Jake Malone. He is a
Casanova and always involved in awkward situations.
When Gracie’s brother-in-law, Pete Thompson, dies, Gracie
thinks she will be named guardian over the twins but his will
surprises all!!!!
Turns out Jake is Pete’s son. So under the terms of the will,
Gracie and Jake need to live at the Thompson Farm for three
months and both raise the twins together. After the time period
is up, custody will be awarded.
Oh my….how will this work out? Will Jake discover who the
“ Gridiron Girl” is? Will Jake be able to handle two six year
old half sisters and Gracie? Will Gracie be able to ward off
Jake’s advances? Was Jake the only secret one in the book
to discover who his father was? Will Jake and Gracie learn
to trust each other? Who will end up as guardian of the twins?
The characters were well defined. There was undeniable
chemistry between the main characters plus humorous
shenanigans happening. The secondary characters were
engaging bringing their own flavor to the story.
The story was an unique one. The author weaved together
the past and present without difficulty which made it flow
The plot had many twists, turns and surprises.
The dog in the story, Murphy adds to the excitement of
the story!!!!
This book is a clever, witty, unpredictable, humorous and
romantic read.
Thank you to Net Gallery for this eBook. My opinion is my own. (less)

Loved this book! (Wednesday, August 5, 2015)
Reviewer: Leeta

I love the humor and sass Crowne weaves into her books and this one is no exception. Gracie Gable, The Gridiron Gal sports blogger, and Jake Malone, a popular tight-end for the Marauders football team, are vying for custody of Gracie's young twin nieces. Previously unknown they are also related to Jake. The custody stipulation require they spend three months together with the girls on a farm to prove their commitment. There is much more to the story, however you'll have to read it to find that out. The main characters are secretive, sexy, and intriguing. You'll also love Murphy, the dog!
