“THE BILLION DOLLAR PLAYER is a quick, sexy read that definitely hits the spot for any sports romance lover.” ~ Under the Covers
THE BILLION DOLLAR PLAYER features the hot shot hottie Jase Blackwell as he makes his way through to the Playoffs. As a Dallas Cowboy, Jase is known for her killer charms and prowess in and off the field. In an attempt to prepare for the big game, Jase goes on the hunt for a woman who will help him relax and unwind. But instead of finding a faceless woman for the night, he runs into Avery Lockhart, one of the waitresses working at an event he is at.
Avery knows that Jase is trouble with a capital T so she remains resistant to Jase’s actions until she decides that she wants him. After all, she can walk away after. But when emotions get involved, that’s when conflict arises. What will be more important to Jase? The game or the woman?
I enjoy Mandy Baxter’s writing as a whole but I found it hard to really get into Jase’s character this time around. I don’t know what it was. I think I was very protective of Avery and felt that her getting involved with him would only result in disaster. As expected, a slew of setbacks occur that break both of their hearts, resulting in a mess that is easily fixed by the end. However, I wanted something more from Jase. His mess up was too easily forgiven. I almost wanted that “grand gesture” from him to really show he was sorry.
All in all, THE BILLION DOLLAR PLAYER is a quick, sexy read that definitely hits the spot for any sports romance lover.

When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.
When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!
