Jackson's Trust by Violet Duke

New York Times bestselling author Violet Duke kicks off her sizzling-hot new Fourth Down series with a friends-to-lovers romance between a no-strings-attached sports analyst and the hottest damn tomboy he’s ever met.

It’s no secret that sports analyst Jackson Gray doesn’t do relationships. What is a secret, however, is the reason why. Jackson’s life is...complicated. And it doesn’t help that his current hands-off “friendship” is with the cute-as-hell new sideline reporter he’s assigned to train. Turns out, not only is the woman damn sweet, she also knows as much about football as he does. Like it or not though, Jackson has to remind himself that sex is the only thing he has to offer...until now.

Leila Hart’s fast-growing friendship with Jackson is something she’d never risk, no matter how unbelievably seductive the reward. Becoming an NFL sportscaster has always been the goal, and thanks to Jackson’s fierce support and mentoring, it all finally seems within reach. Problem is, a girl can only take so much of that sexy-as-sin voice whispering dirty, filthy football stats in her ear before she loses all self-control. A workplace romance with Jackson is a disaster waiting to happen, especially for someone with big dreams...and secrets of her own.

Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

Something rather surprising happened to me during this book – I enjoyed the first half the most. Usually there is a buildup, a drama, a resolution (or thereabouts) and I wasn't that happy about the drama – it was rather extreme, and I didn't feel the story needed something so dramatic. It was well written, and resolved well eventually, but it jarred so much with the beginning. Now, maybe that was the whole point, and it allowed other issues to surface, but it felt like blowing up the school to open a locker.

That said, I laughed and chuckled, and loved the banter between Jackson and Leila. I loved that she was a woman with brains and integrity, that she did not let her family bring her down. I think Jackson was great too, an all-round good guy. His friends are priceless. And probably I had been lulled into this happy world of passion, relaxed friendship and romance, when it all went awry!

I definitely recommend you read it as it is a good story, and Ms. Duke has a wonderful way with words.

New York Times & USA Today bestselling author Violet Duke is a former professor of English Education ecstatic to now be on the other side of the page writing wickedly fun contemporary romances filled with strong, unique heroines and memorably romantic heroes.

When she's not feeding her book-a-day reading addiction, Violet enjoys tackling reno projects with her power tools, trying pretty much anything without reading the directions first, and cooking impossible-to-be-duplicated 'special edition' dishes that laugh in the face of recipes. A born and raised island girl, she spends her days in Hawai'i chasing after her two cute kids (daughter Violet & son Duke) and similarly adorable husband (their ringleader).
