Maxwell has finally met an opponent that he can't best in this new football romance from the author of Fumbled.
According to Brynn Larson, Maxwell Lewis is more trouble than he's worth. She doesn't care if he's a football god with a rock-hard body that brings most women to their knees. After an encounter that ends poorly, she's not interested in giving him a second chance. The last thing Brynn expects is for him to turn up at her bar months later, hat in hand. It doesn't matter if he brings more customers to her business--she's still not going on a date with him.
Maxwell knows he made a mistake. He'd been waiting to make his move on Brynn since the day he laid eyes on her and he was finally ready to go for it until he screwed up. He wishes he could tell her the truth about what happened that night, but he just can't. He can't tell anyone, so he'll make amends and hope she'll forgive him.
Brynn's not like other women, though. Playing for the Mustangs doesn't impress her and gifts make her scoff. Max will have to bring his A game if he hopes to win her over.

I am just going to dive into this one. I have read the previous books in this standalone series, and I enjoyed them. I was looking forward to reading this one.
Let's just rip the band-aid off from the go. Listen, I am all girl power and all, but I have my limitations. I love a strong woman. What I don't like is a weak woman, cloaked as a strong woman with a strong feminist personality. And that is who Brynn is in this book. She is the epitome of an overbearing feminist. Too many times I found myself rolling my eyes, and saying 'come on already'. I just couldn't with her. Instead of being a strong woman, her high fixation on feminism made her come across as weak. She hid behind her feminist beliefs, and I couldn't have been more annoyed by it.
Aside from the latter, I enjoyed the overall story. I loved Maxwell's character. He definitely needed to be a strong character to put up with Brynn. I will admit, they complimented one another. He brought her down to earth one step at a time. Their friendship to lovers story is definitely one that made me smile.
