Olivia Stradmore, daughter to Senator Jonathan Stradmore, has one goal in life—win her fifth grand slam tennis title in as many years. 

Olivia doesn’t have time for a stalker who disapproves of her less than modest life choices. She enjoys the occasional tennis pro in bed, short skirts, and the chance to free her wild side. 

Her dreams take a turn when her stalker, known only as Ty, runs over her with a van and puts her in the hospital. Ty will stop at nothing to possess what he covets. 

Enter bodyguard Brack Jacobs—hair too long, attitude too uptight, and body too damn hot. 

Brack has a job to do and sleeping with a target is not in the target’s best interest. Doesn’t matter that Olivia is sexy as hell and bent on adding a notch to her bedpost with Brack’s name on it. 

Life is not as straightforward as it seems and deadly consequences await them both. 

Can Olivia change Brack’s mind and turn a spark of desire into a raging inferno? Will Brack survive the flames or would slam, bam, thank you ma’am be his safest bet? 

- A Completion Sports Book. Expect erotic sex, an alpha male, and more balls than a girl knows what to do with.


I want to start off with I have had the honor of reading each one of Holly Robert's books in the Competition Series, and by far this one is my favorite.

This one is about pro tennis, but where usually it is a male athlete, this time she flips it around on us and uses a female athlete, Olivia Stradmore.  I like the way that Holly wrote Olivia's person because she aloud her to be a strong willed individual who was happy with her position in life, her career, and the fact that she accepted her sexuality.  I like the fact that she did not make her out to be a "sissy" with her emotions as well.

Now, as for Olivia's counter part, there could not have been anyone better suited than Brack Jacobs.  He is just hard headed enough, with the added humor to be able to handle all that Olivia throws at him, and I mean this in a literal sense too.

The way that Holly writes the conflict of the stalker is fantastic.  She forms the entire book around this subject, but keeps it just enough on the edge to keep you guessing as to who he is, what is he going to do next, and where is he hiding at and the biggest question of all, who is he.  The way that Ty manages to stay elusive is great, and the fact that he seems to be one step ahead makes him scary.

Now, for my favorite parts of the book, it has to be the banter that Olivia and Brack sling back and forth to each other.  The smartass remarks are hilarious and I loved them.  There were so many witty comments that I could not pick out just one, but can say that she kept me laughing the entire book.  Just when things would hit a serious point Holly Roberts would have one or both of them kicking out some off the wall saying that would have you going, they did not just say that.  This for me is what really made the book fun to read and my favorite of the series.  I can say I think you will find it as much fun to read.


Naughty Excerpt: Unedited
I squealed as Brack flipped us over dislodging my hands. He was hard again. Or maybe his erection never left. I sat back on his thighs and admired his cock. Placing my fingers around the head, I squeezed gently.

“Harder,” he said with lust in his voice.

“Mmm, I want to suck.”

“What’s stopping you?” he asked gruffly.

I gripped harder like he asked. “I want you shooting off in my pussy this time.”

He closed his eyes for a moment. “Suck me first and that can be arranged.”
I didn’t care that I was a sticky mess. I wiggled off him until my knees hit the floor. He moved down a bit so I could comfortably reach him with my mouth. He propped himself on his arms and watched. I stuck my tongue out and licked just the tip. I didn’t always like the taste of men but Brack was yummy. When I’d sucked his cum from my fingers, I’d wanted to go back for seconds. I flicked my tongue against him watching his reaction. It wasn’t much. I knew he liked it hard. I wrapped my lips around the head and sucked a little as I circled his balls with one hand and his cock with the other.

Saliva pooled in my mouth as I took him deeper. At the same time, I put additional pressure around his cock. My lips met my fingers and I sucked while bobbing my head. His groan had me tightening my fingers even harder.

“I want to grab your hair but I’m afraid I’ll hurt your head,” he moaned out on a ragged breath.

His cock slipped from my mouth as I looked up. He stared at the stream of saliva between his dick and my lips. I smiled. “I’m fine, do what feels good.”

His eyes met mine as he placed his fingers in my hair and pushed my mouth to his cock again. I opened wide and took him deeper.

“Fuck me you’re good at this.”

I didn’t take it the wrong way—I was good at this. The second lover in my life, an Australian tennis pro, spent a lot of time teaching me fellatio. He wasn’t into returning the favor frequently and I finally kicked him to the sideline. He came out of the closet a year ago and it all made sense. But who better to teach about blowjobs than a gay man? I didn’t feel comfortable enough to practice my skills with most of the men I slept with. Brack was different. I wanted his cock. And like most things in my life, I took what I wanted.

Holly S. Roberts is the USA Today Best-Selling Author of “Play” the first book in the completion series. She lives high in the Arizona Mountains with the love of her life and her anxiety ridden Rottweiler, Dizzy. To write, she needs caffeine on her desk and music playing in the background. Hard rock and mellow instrumentals fill her office in equal accord. Oh and she loves to read, and read, and read.
