My life revolved around two things. Football and my cock. And not necessarily in that order.

Being the head football coach for a top university in Texas had its ups and its downs.

The ups? Endless women to f*ck.

The downs? The politics that came with the job.

From the moment Aubrey Cain walked into my office, she turned my world upside down. Being forced to have her follow me around for a month was going to be a pain in the ass. Especially since I couldn’t keep my eyes off of her.

The best I’d hoped to come out of this was a few nights with her in my bed. I never imagined she’d be the game changer.

Brett Owens was my assignment.

Head football coach for a top college, bad boy reputation, short temper, and handsome good looks should have scared me off. But I was tougher than that.

From the first words out of his obnoxious, dirty-talking mouth, I knew it was going to be a long month. It wasn’t five minutes after meeting him, he hit on me. If only I had known his blue eyes would haunt my dreams and awaken a desire inside of me I never knew existed.

This was business. There was no way I would be tempted by him no matter how good looking he was or how many things he whispered in my ear.

He was only supposed to be my assignment. Not the man who threatened to destroy both my heart and my career. I would follow along with his playbook for now. But who would end up winning was anyone’s guess.

The Playbook is a stand-alone novel.

Jenny’s Review

This was another fun and entertaining, light hearted read by this wonderful author. There are quirky moments, some very steamy moments, and there are some bang my head on the wall moments. I love sports romance novels but this one seem to have a different feel to it, more focused on the love story❤️

First and foremost, I loved Brett Owens!!!
Kelly Elliot knows how to write the perfect mix of alpha, sexy, sweet & mushy. The forbidden romance factor made the story all the more hot!
Brett Owens is a successful college football coach, a retired NFL player, and he’s also a playboy, a very big playboy. He’s a perfect mix of alpha, sexy, cocky, sweet, and mushy.

Aubrey is the upcoming journalist sent to write about him. She’s sweet, goal oriented, family driven, and she doesn’t like players. Yet, the very first time she made eye contact with the sexy Brett Owens, she knew she was in trouble.

Its “lust” at first sight for both of them. Since it’s forbidden and risky for both their careers, they decide not to give in to their attraction and fight it but in the process fall even harder for each other. For a welcoming change, they acknowledge their lust, instead of tiptoeing and avoiding it. They develop a strong friendship and cross over the line that can’t be taken back. Until one wants more than the other. This is when my head banged the wall hard. It drug out way to long for me… Don’t get me wrong, I loved this book, i wish a few things would have been different towards the end, but I can’t write to give away, so….. loved the ending, loved the characters, and I still love Kelly Elliott❤️
