Tackled by the Girl Next Door by Sharon Scott Shelley and Veronica Forand









Tackled by the Girl Next Door


by Susan Scott Shelley & Veronica Forand


Genre: Contemporary Romance


Publisher: The Wild Rose Press


Release Date: October 15, 2014






















When a retired NFL player returns home to sort out his life, he finds his future in the girl next door.





Jason Black is a newly retired professional football player. Forced off the playing field due to an injury, he returns to his hometown to contemplate his future and finds solace in his relationship with his best friend, Samantha O’Brien.





Sam has spent the past five years caring for her younger brother. Home from college for Thanksgiving break, he parties hard and bullies his sister. When Jason comes to her defense, protecting her from a crowd of drunken college kids, Sam begins seeing him as more than a friend. Yet, she fears acting on their attraction could ruin the friendship she’s grown to depend upon.





Just one kiss changes everything for Jason. Sam is no longer the girl next door but the woman of his dreams. Now, he just has to convince her that his feelings are real. But when the football world comes calling again and career decisions are on the line, both sacrifice all to put the other’s needs first. They must decide whether to follow their hearts and make the catch of a lifetime.

















Hazel eyes burned into hers. ”Sam.”





“What?”





“You've got chocolate on your lower lip.”





“Oh.” She reached for her napkin.





His hand stopped hers. “I’ll get it.”





Instead of his fingers, his lips descended. His gaze intense, his movements controlled, he leaned in. Slowly. Sam moistened her lips and inhaled. Dream or reality? Jason’s lips closed over hers, too warm, too firm to be a figment of her subconscious. Fireworks exploded behind her eyes. She tasted the heady combination of chocolate and wine and Jason. She fisted his sweater, holding him to her. Kissing Jason was better than she’d imagined.
