Sports writer Max Myers just discovered he lives next door to the hottest soccer player to hit the field. If he scores a coveted interview with the reclusive striker for the Denver Blaze, he could take himself from sports blogger to mainstream sports authority.

Riley Grayson has no interest in interviews or in outing his private life to the public. He wants to be known for the scoring he does on the field and not in the sack. But Max is a temptation he can't resist. Taking a chance, Riley and Max discover they have more in common than passion for soccer and hot sex between the sheets.

Just as they begin to trust each other outside the bedroom, Max is put in a no-win situation: write an article about Riley exposing accusations of drug use, or risk destroying his own credibility. If he does, he'll lose Riley. If he doesn't, he'll lose everything he's worked hard to achieve.

Max Myers is a sports writer with a bit of fame, and is hoping to make it big in a new city. He has a blog that is very popular, so he’s hoping that fame will take him to primetime. Moving can be a bitch, but when said bitch makes him neighbour to Riley Grayson the talent and popular Striker for the Denver Blazer. Max cannot complain because Riley is hot as hell and also getting an interview with him would pretty much make his career.

Riley Grayson is the popular soccer player, the fans love him and he is living the life. When Max moves in next door, the hiding of his sexuality comes in to play. Riley doesn’t need a reporter outing him but the flames are high when it comes to the heat between them, and Riley is willing to take a chance.

Riley and Max together is all kinds of hot. These two really burn up the pages and offer so much personality. This little story is worthy of novel praises, because it offers up some realistic angst with all that man love. I loved the whole soccer player meets sports writer, still within the same element but the contrast is super hot.

The writing is spot on; Ms Waters captures the sexy but also bring the emotions out of the pages. Though the storyline got somewhat predictable, I loved it any freaking way. I never expected it to be so awesome, and I am all kinds of happy it was. I don’t read many sports themed book, but if they are as good as this one then count me in.

SideNote- This book has one of the best ride them cowboy scenes ever. I’m surprised Max isn’t a full fledged jockey ^_~
