Playing for Keeps by Beth Bolden

Playing for Keeps by Beth Bolden

Sebastian Howard is the best damn cornerback in the NFL.

Or at least he was.

Age and injuries have taken a toll, and while most people have written him off, Sebastian isn’t ready to acknowledge that at only thirty-two, he’s already in the twilight of his career.

He signs with the Miami Piranhas intending to prove everyone wrong.

Only to realize that the head coach’s son, out-and-proud Beau Dawson, doesn’t believe he can.

Beau is infuriating but brilliant, and when he offers to help him on the field, Sebastian wants to say yes, but there’s one thing stopping him: the unexpected, inconvenient, and all-consuming crush he doesn’t want to have on Beau.

But Beau isn’t interested in playing it safe, with football or with anything else, and soon they’re embroiled in a hot—and secret—affair that would finish Sebastian’s career if Coach Dawson found out.

As Sebastian falls harder for Beau, he begins to realize that actually the worst thing in the world isn’t getting benched, but losing the man he loves.

Playing for Keeps is the first book in the Miami Piranhas series.

Sebastian Howard is the best cornerback in the NFL until, well, he isn't anymore. He knew he lost a step. He knew it was slower than he had been. What he hoped would happen was that he'd work his butt off and no one would notice. But someone did, Beau Dawson, the head coach’s son. Beau is a genius and sees the game better than anyone else. When he recommends that instead of Sebastian trying to kill himself on the field fighting for every inch, to try moving to the safety position. Sebastian is admittedly against it until Beau shows him with his help, he'll be the best safety in the NFL.

The sexual tension between these two is immediate. Beau wants to do what's right by Sebastian if he can get Sebastian to trust him. I loved watching these characters open up to each other and realize what was between them.

This is a new-to-me author and so far, I am loving the football side of the story just as much as the romance. I can't wait to read more!
