Eye on the Ball (A Playing for Glory Romance, #1)
Genre: M/F Contemporary Romance
What would prove to be stronger? Love, or loyalty?
It was a World Cup year, and top professional rugby player, Jakes du Plessis desperately wanted to fulfil his childhood dream of playing for the Springboks. However, to succeed, he must stick to the team’s strict vow of celibacy and mantra: ‘Focus! Keep an eye on the ball – and stay away from women.’
What Jakes didn’t count on was a chance meeting with Angie Summers, an artist who shook him to his core and threw his well-laid plans into a tailspin. Not even his promise to his friends and teammates, over 9 000 miles between them, and demons from his past could stop Jakes from falling for Angie.
Unfortunately, not everything is plain sailing, and Jakes finds that it takes a team to help him overcome obstacles to find his way to his own Happily Ever After.
When Angie stumbled upon Jakes by accident, it definitely wasn't love at first sight. She wasn't looking for a new relationship, after all, she was still wearing another man’s ring.
Fate has different ideas though.
Can Angie forgive Jakes and forget about their first disastrous encounters? And will he let her into his heart to overcome his biggest enemy, which is not on the field of play?
