Blurb
In a game played on and off the field, only one of them will emerge the winner.

Armed with an uncanny ability for evaluating football talent, a dogged determination to succeed in a man’s world, and an empty bank account, Rachel McCormick agrees to help struggling wide receiver Derek Ramsey get his game back. Rachel believes Derek, her former best friend and lover, knows the truth behind the points-shaving scandal which ruined her father. She vows to expose the secret even if it destroys Derek in the process.

When Derek’s coach suggests sex as an excellent tension reliever the night before a game, Rachel takes one for the team. The next day, Derek has the best performance of his not-so illustrious pro football career. As Derek and Rachel rack up nights in bed and other places, the team racks up wins on the field. Rachel is torn between her loyalty to her father and her growing affection for Derek.

Now it’s fourth and goal, one second left on the clock. Their hearts are on the line. Do they trust each other enough to go for the long bomb or do they get dropped for a loss?

Thoughts
Football is my second favorite sport, second only to basketball. As a 6’0” woman, of course basketball is my favorite, that was my life in high school. I love sport romances and Fourth and Goal definitely lived up to and surpassed my expectations. I loved the story line and how these two fought the attraction until they couldn’t any more. Ms. Davenport knows how to put in just the right amount of angst and hot, sweaty sex to make a story hard to put down. I fell in love with all the characters and cried, laughed and shared the emotional turmoil they all did. I can’t wait to read more about the Lumberjacks. I will definitely be checking out the rest of this series by Ms. Davenport.
