Filthy Player by Stacey Lynn Release Date: October 9th


The Raleigh Rough Riders are back, and this time Super Bowl Quarterback Beaux Hale finds himself playing the most important game of his life.

Every woman knows Beaux Hale is nothing but a player. Yet the first time he walks into Paige Halloway’s restaurant and flashes his sexy grin, she feels a heat between them spark. Too bad he opens his mouth and ruins it.

He may think his money, fame, and sexy looks will attract any woman—but he’s wrong.

Paige doesn’t have time for a man. She’s too busy keeping a roof over her head and taking care of her father to care about relationships.

Lucky for Beaux, he’s a man who's ready to use all the plays at his disposal. He didn’t bring his team a Super Bowl victory by giving up at the first block in his path—and Paige Halloway has just become his new long-game.

Beaux also knows that sometimes, in order to win and claim your prize, you have to get a little bit filthy.

Add to Goodreads:

I love books where the hero just plain loves the heroine. Not all the time, as sometimes a little angst and drama can be fun, but it really works well in this story. I think because Paige has a lot to deal with in her life already and it is appealing to read a story where the romance removes the stress instead of adding to least mostly.

Beaux is a player, and he makes less than a positive first impression on Paige, although he redeems himself...mostly. Then they have a second meeting and he is not taking no for an answer when it comes to starting a relationship with Paige...even though she is not totally on board.

I love that this dealt with the fears that they have. And, I love that they both come with "my life keeps me from being able to be in a relationship" fears. I think we all come with these and it was great to see them dealt with in a way that felt ultimately very real.

I enjoy Stacey Lynn. Her books are well written, and steamy, and you feel the connection with the characters, which makes them engaging.

I recommend this title.

I have a weakness for sports romance, particularly football romances. When the opportunity to read this book came up I jumped at the chance and I'm glad I did. This book was sweet, fun and once I started I didn't want to stop.

I respected Paige very much. I understood her pride, her desire to take care of her father on her own. She doesn't make time for herself so that makes dating hard. She has walls and watching Beaux deal with them was great. I understood Paige and found her to be very relatable.

Beaux ? Well I just adored him. I love his pursuit of Paige. His determination and sweetness (his sexiness didn't hurt) won me over. Did he make the best first impression? Nope, but boy did he fix it.

There's a connection between these two, whether Paige likes it at first or not. Their sexy times are, well, sexy. But it's the real life stuff that makes them shine. Seeing them together navigating what it's like to actually be with one another was immensely satisfying. It's not always sunshine and rainbows for them and I liked that. I liked seeing the reality of their lives play out.

I thought the pacing and plot of this book really worked. The writing flowed and once I started reading I didn't want to stop. This isn't my first book from Stacey Lynn and it definitely won't be my last. I recommend this book.
