Single dad Andy Shaw loves his job as a sports agent, with one exception: it doesn’t leave him much time for his kids. No parent likes being sidelined, so Andy decides to hire someone to share the workload. But when one of the hottest agents in the industry applies, Andy knows that this deal is definitely trouble.
Danicka Douglas works her butt off, but being an attractive woman in a testosterone-heavy industry isn’t exactly a cakewalk. She guards her professional reputation fiercely, which means no crushing on her gorgeous boss. But the more they ignore that sexy little spark, the more it sizzles…
Just when it looks like romance might be in the game plan, Dani is threatened by a stalker with dark intentions. To keep her safe, Andy must cross the line between professional and very personal…because this time, he’s playing for keeps.
I’m always intrigued by the whole world of sports agents after watching Ballers, so I couldn’t wait to dive in to this book.
Even the Score features single dad/sports agent Andy who decides to hire a new sports agent to take on some of the workload so he can spend more time with his kids. Sexy sports agent Danicka Douglas joins him and of course sparks are flying. Add in a mysterious stalker situation to this forbidden romance and you’ve got yourself a winning score.
This is my first book by Beth Ehemann, and she’s definitely on my radar now. I’m all about trying out new authors and I liked this book. I enjoyed the banter and there was some hotness going on here. The pacing of this story was slow, even though I appreciated the fact that there wasn’t instalove. And I loved the sports aspects. The characters were likable, the family coming together was sweet, and I’m looking forward to reading more from this author.
