Screw him and his perfect stats.

Sinful smirk.

Delicious body.

Lincoln Landry probably even has game-winning stamina.

I’d like to screw her and her perfect ass.

Dangerous curves.

Sweet smile.

Danielle Ashley probably even has a game-changing personality.

There’s no denying the chemistry between them. It’s so fiery, it’s undeniable. They partake in it. Enjoy it.

They really enjoy it.

Attraction is not a problem. Nor is their banter, relationship status, or habits. That’s all fine. Perfect, actually.

The problem is as tangled up as their sheets.

My review

My review on Goodreads + teaser

I’m so sad that I finished this book. I love Landry Family! Already after the first book in the series I knew it’d be my new favorite series. And I wasn’t disappointed with the youngest Landry’s brother story.

About the plot: Lincoln Landry is a hot, professional baseball player. He got injured at the end of the season and now his future is uncertain. He attends therapy and tries to reconcile with the fact that his career could be over. One day when the elevator opened on the wrong floor at the hospital, he saw Danielle and simply followed her to her office. Although she doesn’t make it easy for him, he is determined to win her over. Even playing a little dirty.

“This little game incenses her, riles her up. If I were the true gentleman my mother raised, I’d warn her that seeing her pissed off only makes me want her worse. Good thing I’m not.”

Danielle Ashley is a director of Child Services at the hospital. She is ambitious and focused on her work, but also very lonely. She has one rule in life. Never involve with the an athlete, especially baseball player and don’t live life like her mother. But the fate makes she draws them like a magnet.

“He’s my kryptonite. Attractive, cocky, confident, sweet, great in bed, and a fucking baseball player. He’s every sin I want to make wrapped up in one delectable body.”

Final thoughts: What I most like about this book? The Landry Family and how tightly they are. Each member of this family has their own unique personality and with Lincoln is no different. He is the youngest and most mischievous. With women cocky and confident. He also carries the burdens to rise to his brothers and sisters. His persistence and thoughtfulness, while not always easy fight for Danielle’s heart, can easily steal the heart of the reader.

The chemistry and flirting between them is intense. But only when they take the matter further it gets really hot. Because of Danielle, their relationship is a little rollercoaster which gives you some anxiety and tension. But most of the time it really is sweet and funny.

“You,” he says, his mouth up against my ear, “are going to be the death of me.”
“Don’t die until after you fuck me, please.”

It sport romance but the plot happens between seasons so you will not find there descriptions of games and things like that. More focused on the family, allowing yourself to love and dealing with the past and an unknown future.

“The perfect pitch is coming and I’m a fucking idiot if I don’t swing.”

This is definitely my favorite series this year. And although I cheer for the author in writing her books, for me she could focus only on the later books in the series. Because the next Graham’s books couldn’t come soon enough


Why they call it a farmhouse is beyond me. That word paints an image of a little white house with a chicken coop. This is a Southern plantation. A huge, wide porch with pillars looks to encompass the entire place. Mums line whiskey barrels and give the clean exterior pops of burgundy, orange, and yellow. It’s breathtaking.

“This is gorgeous,” I breathe as it comes into full view. “Not what I expected.”

“This is my second favorite place in the world,” he whispers against my ear.

“Second? What could be more perfect that this?”

“Inside you.”

Before he can pull away, I turn my face so my lips capture his. He deepens the kiss, our lips working against one another in perfect harmony. As we pull away, breathless, he grins. “Thank you for coming.”

“I’ll ensure you come later,” I promise.

“Naughty girl,” he chuckles as the car rolls to a stop. “I like it.”

“You will.”
