Single dad Andy Shaw loves his job as a sports agent, with one exception: it doesn’t leave him much time for his kids. No parent likes being sidelined, so Andy decides to hire someone to share the workload. But when one of the hottest agents in the industry applies, Andy knows that this deal is definitely trouble.
Danicka Douglas works her butt off, but being an attractive woman in a testosterone-heavy industry isn’t exactly a cakewalk. She guards her professional reputation fiercely, which means no crushing on her gorgeous boss. But the more they ignore that sexy little spark, the more it sizzles…
Just when it looks like romance might be in the game plan, Dani is threatened by a stalker with dark intentions. To keep her safe, Andy must cross the line between professional and very personal…because this time, he’s playing for keeps.
There’s something about Ehemann’s writing that pushes all of my buttons. We just click. I don’t know if it’s the way she writes, the characters she creates, the stories she conjures… but it just all works for me.
Even the Score was basically all that I’d hoped it would be. Andy has always been a favorite character of mine and I fell even more in love with him in this book. Him, his kids, Gloria, all of them. Nothing is hotter than a good dad and Andy is top notch. He’s funny, sweet, hard working, and sexy. He’s the total package.
The only thing that felt a little lacking was my connection with Danicka. Something about her character never clicked with me. I think maybe this had something to do with the fact that she’s naturally a very closed off person but I just never quite connected emotionally with her. I had an emotional connection to her story and everything that happened, but not directly to her the way that I’d wanted to. I wanted her to capture my heart the way that all of Ehemann’s other characters have but for some unknown reason, she just didn’t.
Don’t get me wrong. I loved this book and I like her for Andy (especially with the dumpster fire that is his ex-wife). I really enjoyed it and I can only hope that more books are written about every character in this amazing fictitious world that she’s created. Reading about them is like a warm, comfy blanket. I love cozying up to them and I can’t wait to do it again.
