Ruck me, maul me, make me scrum. Rugby is back and so is bad boy, Van Stelson. Love him or hate him, he’s decided that his brother’s happily married life might be what he’s missing.
It’s cold and miserable in Colt, Ohio and the single ladies need a hot male body to heat up their long, lonely nights. But now, Van’s taking a good long look at his friend, Danny. She’s dynamite on a rugby field and his go-to partner when he needs a drinking buddy. She’s not his usual type—dainty, feminine, or curvy. She’s athletic and independent and wants nothing sexually to do with the town’s playboy. Drinking him under the table and listening to his deepest, darkest secrets is another story.
Just friends. Can friendship build into something more without breaking hearts or will Van ruck it up again?

So where do I want to begin???? Should I start off with the review, or should I start off with a few of the quotes that made this book so enjoyable.  Decisions, decisions.

Okay, quote it is... now to choose one of the many that I loved.
"Hell froze over."  "Earth as we know it, will never be the same.  I looked forward to being warm in hell, not cold, so I guess I need to straighten myself out and look upward." ~ Danny~

This book is not only about the love of a game shared between both of the characters Van and Danny, but that of unknown feelings.  Sometimes we as people fail to see what is sitting right in front of us, and this story shows us that very thing.  Holly S. Roberts manages to give us yet another fantastic story that will not only have us drooling over the star player, but will allow us to get that warm and fuzzy feeling for the romance involved.

Once I started reading this book, I could not put it down.  I actually managed to read it with in the time frame of a few hours.  It is just that good.  You find yourself at the end of the story before you even realize it.  I love the way that Van decided and figured out what he wanted and continued to chase after it, even when it seemed that he would never achieve his very mission.  Not only did he stick with his game, but he didn't allow anyone to knock him out of actually scoring his goal.

Again there are so many highlights and points to this book that I could just go on and on.  But, what fun would that be, because then I wouldn't leave you the reader anything left unknown.  So with that being said, I will leave you with one more of my favorite quotes.

"What the hell's gotten into Van?  Are you terminally ill, picked up an STD and the penicillin hasn't kicked in yet, or maybe you hit your head?"  ~Danny~
" Not terminal illness, I didn't hit my head, and I promise, Danny girl, I'm clean due to finishing my last round of antibiotics weeks ago." ~Van~

“We’re going to do this my way, Van.” She stops me so my back is to the couch. Her fingers go to the button of my jeans.

Okay, so no more yelling. She’s staring into my eyes and, with no uncertainty, she moves to my zipper and slowly lowers it inch by delectable inch.

“Danny,” I say on a groan as one hand slips inside my boxers and she wraps her fingers around me. I start lifting her shirt, but her other hand grips mine and stops me.

“My way.” The fire in her eyes has turned to steel. She removes her hand, jerks the front of my boxers down, and her fingers are back.

Fuck me, there’s no way I’ll argue at this point.

“Have a seat, lover boy.” She gives me a solid push back.

There’s something in her tone and eyes that my brain can’t quite grasp. My dick doesn’t have the same problem. It’s at attention and growing larger by the second. Danny’s strong, but there’s no chance of her pushing me down unless I allow it. My back hits the hard back of the sofa as Danny sinks to her knees.

Fuck me sideways.

She kneels up a bit, and her tongue extends and runs over the tip of my cock.

“Shit, Danny, what the hell?” It’s not really a question, because if she stops I don’t know what I’ll do. Her tongue takes the air from my lungs, and the next second I release a growl as she closes her mouth over the head. Her tongue is still working and I feel its slick surface as she twirls it around. I move back farther against the sofa and her eyes rise to mine.

Holy fucking God, it’s the hottest thing I’ve ever seen. I’ve had more blow jobs than I can count on my fingers and toes. It’s her large brown eyes, staring at me as her mouth works my dick. She slides down my cock slowly and her cheeks suck in. She makes every other blow job fly right out of my head. She’s watching me and, for a few seconds, I close my eyes, fighting the need to come within thirty seconds of her going down on me. When I open them again, she starts using her hand up and down my length, opposite to the rhythm of her mouth. I want her hair loose. I want it surrounding her face and brushing my thighs. Another time. There’s no way in hell I’m changing anything about this.

She takes her hand away and uses just her mouth as her fingers go to the waist of my jeans and boxers. She pulls and I lift up, so they slide under me while she pushes them down my legs. She takes advantage, and cups my balls with one hand and returns the other to my cock.

I’m losing it when all I want is for this to continue for an eternity. Her fingers, her mouth, her tongue consume me. Within too short a time, the well-known tightening of my balls can’t be denied.

“Fuck, Danny, I’m there, pull back,” I groan in a way I’ve never heard leave my mouth.

She has my dick halfway down her throat and a rumble of need growls inside her throat, which sends me over the edge. The pulse of my seed shoots, and she’s there to take it. All of it. My hips buck. Her eyes are closed now, and I finally lean my head back against the sofa and close mine.
