Two love matches made. One to go.
Even though two of his best friends have settled down, Wes Lancaster is determined not to get sucked into some siren's web. As owner of the professional football team the New York Mavericks and the wildly successful BAD restaurant, his lifestyle is full as it is.
Well, it was, until Winnie Winslow - the new sexy, stiletto-wearing team physician - trash-talks him in the locker room without batting an eye. Now he can't stop himself from wanting her.
The only girl in her parents' brood of five, she's as outspoken as she is beautiful and the kind of woman who holds her own - and then some.
Always competitive at heart, if he's going all in for love, Wes sure as hell wants a win-win.
Prepare to get a little dirty, because this one might go into overtime. Game on.

"A FUNNY & DELICIOUSLY HOT ROM/COM"
I thought the last two books that this secretive writing duo did were just great.. but I think they kept the best for last as Wes and Winnie finally get their own story. And what an enjoyable and entertaining story it was as the Playboy owner of the Mavericks succumbs to love.
Although his best friends Kline and Thatch have found love Wes is quite happy with his bachelor lifestyle of football, foreplay and f...ing - well he was happy until he sees Winnie Winslow - his Teams gorgeous smart sassy new Physician and suddenly Wes can't get the feisty woman out of his mind. But every time they're near each other there are glares, arguements and you could cut the sexual tension with a knife. Winnie is a loving Mom to a high-functioning autistic six year old and has no intentions of getting involved with a workaholic womanizer like Wes Lancaster who could easily disrupt hers and her daughter's very structured lifestyle and he's her Boss. But never say never right? because it doesn't take long for sparks to fly, flames to build and for passion to burn brightly as a hot 'friends with benefits' relationship turns into something much much more.
Winnie has tamed the bear (Wes) who is now charming, sweet and even smiles at employees and he deserves the love of a good woman - so finally, with Winnie and her daughter, he gives and receives the adoration of two special females. However, just as the normally self-assured confident Wes finds love, contentment and happiness by being an important part of a close loving family unit, he suddenly has a crisis of faith in himself. His revelation leaves a very confused and annoyed Winnie to pick up the pieces of shattered dreams, tattered hopes and broken hearts... vowing never to go there again - but, as I said, never say never because Wes finally and thankfully sees the light.. but is it too late for this reformed Playboy?
The mysterious duo of writers have proved themselves over and over again with this enjoyable series by continually giving me 5* addictive rom/com love stories. They have made me laugh out loud with the character's antics, thoughts and deeds, I've cringed, giggled and cheered over the quick-witted easy banter, blushed at the sex scenes hoping no one else can hear, happy sighed at the sweet promises and declarations made, swooned at the passion felt and growled in frustration when someone inevitably messed up. With this book it was also great to catch-up with Georgia and Kline and a hilarious pregnant Cassie and Thatcher as they were all impressively woven into the fun and games. And your heart will melt at the interactions between Wes and Winnie's daughter Lex. Joe and Maxine did a wonderful job at the dual POV narration as usual.
Worth a credit? Yes and I've thoroughly enjoyed getting to know all the characters in this series so it's with a heavy heart I have to say adieu to them.. but I'm eagerly watching and waiting to see who and what comes next from this mighty duo.
"If you are offended by the use of GD"
I loved this series, but cringed every time they used GD, and it was A LOT! This series was great on it's own and would have been even better in my opinion by not using God's name in vein. I hope that future books will be written as great as these were, but without using GD. I also would like more closer in the epilogue. Mainly because I just didn't want the book to end.
"Maxine Mitchell ruined this story for me"
I love these authors, love Joe Arden. Maxine Mitchell is over the top with the drama inflected in every f!#@king sentence. this is a story ,not a poem which is where she should stick to narrating. I had to finish this book by reading it vs listening, it was distracting and irritating to listen to for Winnie' parts. too bad because I really like Joe Arden. that is who all the stars go to, if it were just him I would have given 5.
"Just keeps getting better and better"
I loved Wes & Winne's story! These two have great chemistry! I love Lexi and the relationship between Wes and her. This book was super sweet and SO Hot! I laughed a lot whenever the girls from this series were together. I hope there is more to come from this author on audio!
Great Narration! I loved that they have different narrators for each book since each book is about different characters.
This series is a MUST READ for contemporary romance lovers.
"painful to listen to"
I tried but couldn't get pass chapter 3 or 4 which is a pity because I really loved the first 2 books. The female narrator drags out the end of words when she speaks which I personally found annoying. I'm definitely going to try to get the actual book, the first 2 were pretty good and I'll die from curiosity if I don''t find out how Wes' story develops! This audio version was disappointing.
This was too chatty. I had to rewind a lot just to catch everything said. story was ok but I didn't like the narrators at all. They didn't even come close to the characters in my opinion. I swear Joe arden sounds like Charlie Sheen!! yuk!!
"A True Fan"
I am a true fan. I have all of Max Monroe's books and I will be purchasing all of them in the future. The writing is comical,romantic, and entertaining.
"Loved it but..."
It was a great and fun story! The only complaint I have is the amount of cussing in this book was just an overkill.
I enjoyed the series. This started out slow but got better the more I listened .
"Less humor more substance"
This book, in the series, is definitely not as funny as the last one but, the storyline had more depth. Mixed in with the developing relationship between the H/h, is a relationship between the Hero and the six year old daughter of the Heroine. Now, in previous books, Wes (hero) has made disparaging remarks about dating woman with children. However, this little girl has Wes' heart in the palm of her little hand. This little girl suffers from Autism , and even though she is high functioning , the challenges of developing a relationship between our Hero and this Autistic girl. At the Climax of the story, our Billionaire Bad boy admits that this woman and her daughter taught him how to be a better man. (sob, sob)
One big disappointment is that the novellas that were written and intended to blend one bad boy's story, into the next, are not available in audio form. It is evident, from the novels that important stuff happens and it does take away from the plot of the novels. ''
All in all, This whole series is an enjoyable experience and I recommend it greatly.
