I bring new meaning to the phrase 'Most Valuable Player'

Women love me, men want to be me and my team mates loathe the constant
attention I bring.

Trouble always finds me, both on and off the field. I see so much
controversy the tabloids have my manager on speed dial. My life is a
non-stop rollercoaster of football, women, and sex and I wouldn’t have
it any other way.

Foolishly, I believed I was untouchable but everything changes when
I’m traded to Crystal Hill Football Club. The coach warns me to clean
my act up—meaning no more scandals—so from now on; I’m flying under
the radar.

That resolution lasts one day—twenty-four hours—before I lose a bet to
my new teammates. I never could pass up a challenge.

My punishment?

Five dates with girls of their choosing.

Five chicks I'd never even blink at, given the choice.

But, a bet’s a bet, so I’ll suck it up and do my time.

** This is book one in a five book serial, with each book 25-30,000 words. These books will release eight weeks apart **

My Review

This book was surprisingly short and ends on a cliffy. I didn't even know that it was part of a 5-part serial until I got to the end. Imagine the frustration! I need book 2 now!

Jake was a footballer (or what I call a soccer player) and a real manwhore. Seriously. Dude was cocky, arrogant, cavalier, reckless and irresponsible. His career was heading into the crapper due to his scandalous ways and he was traded to a bottom rung team that was unwilling to put up with his well-earned reputation. He had to either shape up or ship out.

There was a little known blog that kind of blew up overnight. It was owned and operated by Abby, a woman who was often overlooked and had a poor opinion of herself. She had absolutely no love for footballers and her blog was dedicated to anonymously airing out their dirty laundry.

Will her feelings change when she meets Jake? Will Jake finally take life seriously? I guess we have to stay tuned to find out.
