Game for Marriage by Karen Erickson

Bad boy Jared Quinn, star quarterback of the San Jose Hawks met local artist Sheridan Harper at a Taste of Monterey festival.  The attraction is instantaneous and combustible.  A flammable one night stand follows.  Jared needs a media makeover.  The new owners want his image cleaned up.  So Jared’s publicist offers her a proposition: a fake marriage to keep Jared out of the gossip columns and she gets money to keep her studio open and continue her charitable works.  Sheridan agrees but with a clause that there be no sex as she is afraid she will lose her heart to the big lug.  Can Sheridan and Jared keep it platonic or will the heat between them explode?

I've been reading a lot of sports romance lately and while the premise is predictable the story moves and grooves and you don’t get that been there done that feeling.  It took me a while to warm up to Jared but when he goes for it he does it with style. Game for Marriage is an enjoyable romp on and off the gridiron.
