Lexie

I don’t
date football players.
As an
unproven sideline reporter, I need to show I’m more than a pretty face. And I
have the perfect opportunity when my boss asks me to dig into the rookie wide
receiver, Gavin Keller. Coming from a family of football stars, he’s my
chance to write a huge story about the newest Keller to go pro. 
I
need to get to know the man under the pads. Is he an arrogant entitled
player or is there a side to him no one knows about?
The more
I watch Gavin at practice and when he mentors young athletes, the more I
realize he’s nothing like I thought. He’s a leader, someone the fans can rally
behind. 
The more I
see, the more I like him—not the player. And the looks he gives me
say he feels the same.
As we get
closer, I’m tempted to break my no-player rule. But if anyone finds out, it’s
my job on the line. Giving in would mean losing everything.
Gavin
I’ve
always had more to prove than any of my teammates. 
I know what
everyone says about me. Since the first time I touched a ball, I’ve been living
in the shadow of my family’s football legacy. My life is focused on
my game and giving back and nothing else. I’m not giving anyone another reason
to talk. That’s until the new reporter, Lexie Austin appears on the sidelines
in her skin-tight tailored suits and sky-high heels. 
They say
she’s only here because of her looks, just like they say I’m only here
because of my name.
So what if
everyone is as wrong about her as me? She’s more than a pretty face and I’m
playing better than ever with her watching. It’s starting to feel like she’s my
personal good luck charm. 
She doesn’t
care about my last name, my signing bonus, or my star potential. She wants to
know me.
I want her
in my bed, by my side, and in my life. Now I just have to convince her that if
she falls, it’ll be the luckiest catch I ever make.

Excerpt
The
expectations were heavy for any rookie, but I’d lived under the shadow of my
father’s legendary success and my brother’s rise to stardom. I’d seen the
recent headlines: Gavin Keller was
drafted because of his last name—any other player with similar stats wouldn’t
be playing professional ball
. The implication was clear—I’d never live up
to my father or my brother’s success. There was no way three football stars
could come from the same family. There were many examples of three brothers in
the sport or two brothers and a father, but one usually didn’t live up to the
hype. 
“That was
impressive,” a female voice said.
I turned
away from the other rookies running sprints to find a tall woman leaning on the
fence, with a press lanyard hanging around her neck. She was gorgeous. Her
smile was open and friendly.
“Thanks.”
My voice was terse. I didn’t want to encourage the press to speak to me. I
didn’t want anyone twisting my words to suit the headlines already written in
their head.
Her smile
faltered for a second before she recovered. “I’m Alexandra Austin. But everyone
calls me Lexie.”
“Gavin
Keller.” I didn’t move toward her. No matter how beautiful this woman was, I
couldn’t afford any distractions. She was the worst kind of distraction—all
long legs, dark hair, and striking blue eyes. The suit she wore molded to her
body but still left a lot to my imagination.
“I know.”
She smiled wider.
It was on
the tip of my tongue to say she didn’t. No one knew anything beyond my name and
stats.
“I’m hoping
to get to know you this year.” She said it matter-of-factly with no overtures
or flirtations.
I wasn’t
sure how to respond to that. Her tone was sweet and inviting. I flicked a
glance at her Seattle lanyard. She wasn’t the enemy, but she wasn’t exactly a
friend either.
