#12 Johnny Decker. Star quarterback for the Boston Tomcats. Two-time Super Bowl MVP…a decade ago. Nickname: Decker the Panty Wrecker.

I get tackled for a living by men who are built like rhinos. I could take the wings off a fly with a football from 30 yards away. (I wouldnโ€™t, but I could.) Being a veteran quarterback means Iโ€™m a mentally alert, fine-tuned athletic machine who can make split-second decisions.

Itโ€™s my job to anticipate whatโ€™s going to happen next and adapt. But I couldnโ€™t have anticipated the death of our beloved team owner.

His estranged daughter Hannah Strong is a finance nerd from New York. She knows less than nothing about football. Know what she didnโ€™t anticipate? Inheriting the Boston Tomcats.

Sheโ€™s stubborn, uptight, infuriating, and wrong about absolutely everythingโ€”from pizza to how to run my team. And I donโ€™t want to talk about how good she looks in a skirt. Or daydream about how good sheโ€™d look out of it.

Really, I donโ€™t.

Iโ€™m not Decker the Panty Wrecker anymoreโ€”Iโ€™ve changed.

I canโ€™t stop arguing with her.

Or thinking about her.

I thought I had a winning play.

But Hannah Strong changed everything.

Sunny Shelly’s Review: 5 Stars

Decker and Hannahโ€™s story was the kind of entertaining, laugh-out-loud workplace romance that I did not want to end. I wanted to savor it, yet fly through each chapter needing more at the same time. I knew what I was getting from Kayley Loring as an author, and I figured Connor Crais has narrated enough romance audiobooks that he knows his stuff, right? Well, I was not disappointed!

These characters were so well written. I felt every emotion Hannah went through as she tried to manage the team of football players who were like sons to her father, guys she felt had taken her place in her dadโ€™s life. And then there is Decker, approaching the end of his career, a great player on an okay team, wondering if he will go out as a champion or not.

Decker and Hannah hilariously get off on the wrong foot, and there is lots of angsty buildup before they eventually get together. There is a steamy locker room hookup that you donโ€™t want to miss, and then a hilarious sashay down a hotel hallway to the ice machine that leads to hot hotel sex.

There are some bumps along the way that Decker and a Hannah have to work through, but itโ€™s a wonderful journey as they build up their own team of two.

Decker was a fantastic debut collaboration from these two authors, and I canโ€™t wait to see what they present next! I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.

ABOUT KAYLEY LORING

Before writing steamy romantic comedy novels, Kayley Loring got a BFA in creative writing and had a fifteen-year career as a screenwriter in Los Angeles (under a different name). She mostly wrote PG-13 family comedies that studios would pay her lots of money for and then never make into movies. In 2017 she decided to move to the Pacific Northwest and write about all the fun stuff that she wasn’t allowed to write about in those PG-13 scripts. Now sheโ€™s an Amazon Top 25 bestselling author who is breathing cleaner air and writing dirtier words. Itโ€™s an adjustment sheโ€™s happily getting used to.

Rest assured that her funny sexy sweet romances have no cheating or cliffhangers, and always have HEAs!
