Quarterback Clay Braden is determined to show this sexy scientist the benefits of hands-on research in PLAYING MR. PERFECT, the first book in the Bradens at Ridgeport series. Loaded with heat, humor, and heart, this sexy interconnected standalone small-town romance is unputdownable. No cheating, no cliffhangers, and guaranteed to leave you breathlessly in love with the fiercely loyal and wickedly naughty characters in the Love in Bloom series.
Clay: As a scientist, Pepper Montgomery is all about work and no play. I get it. She’s serious minded, and that’s wicked attractive, but as a quarterback, I play for a living. I never thought I’d need help focusing on the game. There’s a reason fans call me Mr. Perfect. When an incident on the field impacts my skills, I’m forced to seek unconventional help or give up the career I love. Sparks fly between me and the sexy scientist, and I’m looking forward to showing her the benefits of hands-on research.
Pepper: I don’t watch sports. I don’t understand any of the games, and I have far more important things to do than help a wealthy football player hone his skills. But my sister is married to one of his closest friends, and I begrudgingly agree to try to help him just to appease her. Big mistake. The project requires us spending extended periods of time together, and I discover there’s a lot more to the insanely hot, impossibly charming quarterback than meets the eye. Our chemistry is too strong to deny, but after a while, I can’t help wondering if he’s just been playing Mr. Perfect all along.
