From the New York Times bestselling author of Tapping the Billionaire comes a hilarious and sexy standalone about fate, chance, and one heck of an epically awkward meet-cute.
4th & Girl, an all-new standalone romantic comedy in the Mavericks Tackle Love series from Max Monroe, is available now!
I’m Leo Landry, one of the best shutdown cornerbacks in the nation, and the New York Mavericks’ first round draft pick.
If James Bond spent his days running drills and his nights shutting out quarterbacks, he’d dream about being me. But professional football is on a whole other level from college, and as the new guy, I’ve got everything to prove.
All I’ve got to do is focus, right?
Too bad life’s got other plans.
Blond hair, long lashes, and criminal blue eyes, there’s a pint-sized bombshell that I can’t stop thinking about.
I don’t even know her name, but she’s completely screwing up my game plan.
It’s too late to turn back now though. I have my eye on the prize, and I won’t settle for anything less.
4th down and only one goal in my sights—this pretty little mystery girl.
Good thing I’m at my best when the pressure’s on.

Gemma and Leo's first meet was...interesting lol. I definitely shook my head and cringed for both of them. But that aside, I love how these characters came back together after that. These characters are people I'd want to hang out with. That's something these authors do incredibly well. Their characters, flaws and all, are so damn likeable you can't help but want to be friends with them.
There's no denying that there's a connection between these characters. The heat sizzles and crackles between them. Their sexy times were sexy, but I enjoyed just watching them figure each other out as well. There's a genuiness about them that just completely works.
I loved getting to catch up with old characters from previous books-but don't worry, this can be enjoyed as a standalone. But it was gratifying to me to see where my other book friends wound up and how they're doing. I really felt like I could fit right into this group!
The writing here is sharp and fun. I snort-laughed a bunch of times and I definitely swooned over these characters as well. The pacing flowed well and I didn't want to see the book come to an end.
If you haven't read Max Monroe (what are you waiting for??) dive into this book-you won't regret it. I absolutely recommend this title.
But, both are attracted to one another...and, when they run into one another again in an unexpected place, it seems likely they are meant to be...or at least meant to go on a first date. I mean, when your new employer sells sex toys, and is related to the man you can't stop thinking about, that's just too much of a coincidence to ignore.
I enjoyed this overall. It was fun, and flirty. It was authentic and the characters were enjoyable. I liked getting a finish to the Mavericks stories, and seeing where the other characters from the other stories ended up.
I recommend this title.
In my opinion, in football, there isn’t a more badass position than shutdown cornerback. What makes my position so badass? Well, I have to be agile and quick and have a natural instinct for the game. My footwork has to be on point, and my speed has to be unmatched. I have to cover, read, adjust, and break on the ball. This position, my position, is one of the biggest anchors of pass defense plays. What does all of that football lingo mean? It means I’m vital. It means I’m the guy who will stop a quarterback’s touchdown pass. I’m the man who won’t let the best wide receivers in the league get their greedy hands on the ball. Last year, my college record was nearly unheard of. I held opposing QBs to a 47.9 rating when they tried to throw the ball to the man I was covering. Basically, I was the badass in one of the toughest positions in the league. And now, as one of the newest first-round draft picks for the New York Mavericks, I’m the guy with everything to prove. I can either be the big hero, or I can be the guy who loses the fucking game. My reputation is on the line, my nearly flawless career in college taunting me in the background to live up to it, and if there’s one thing I need to do, it’s focus. But life’s got other plans. I should have my mind on my money—and my money on my mind—but the only thing I can seem to think of these days is the mystery girl I met at one of the team’s very first group activities. Blond hair. Long lashes. Criminally blue eyes. She’s petite and awkward, and she’s completely fucking up the plan. But it’s too late to second-guess. And it’s sure as fuck too late to go back. Once my mind is fixated on something, there’s no stopping me. I have my eye on the bombshell prize, and I won’t settle for anything less than victory. Good thing I’m at my best when the pressure’s on.
