Publisher's Summary

Can a football superstar fall for the girl next door?

When the NFL goes on strike, Super Bowl champion Peyton O'Rourke ends up back in his hometown as a substitute teacher and high school football coach. The one thing he didn't count on? Maddy Cooper being newly single. She's the hot-girl-next-door type. Literally. She's literally the cute girl next door and his best friend's (now ex) girl. And even though he knows he should be with anyone other than Maddy Cooper - well, you know the drill.

Things are going to get hot. Heavy. Does Facebook still have an "It's complicated" button? Because it's about to go down.

My Two Pennies

4.5 stars. I was pulled into this story all over again with Peyton and Maddy. The narration was wonderful giving each individual character their own strong personality and kept me wanting to listen. I found myself hooked more then before while listening and although I’ve read the story, I felt even more hooked hearing it.

Enjoyed

I enjoyed listening to this audiobook. It was a fun journey to see Peyton and Maddy re-connect. There were cute fun surprises throughout the story. It was a nice way to spend my afternoon while I was at work cleaning houses. Bonus that Sebastian and CJ Bloom narrate the story.

Even better in audio!!! Steamy sweet goodness!!

Peyton and Maddy were already a favorite couple but hearing their story with Sebastian York & CJ Bloom made it even better!! I loved it in audio! I could listen to it all over again!! And again. And the steam! OMG, even dirtier out loud!!

If you like second chances, small town romance, sports romance, friends to lovers stories, you want to read/listen to this one. Peyton is cocky but sweet. Maddy is feisty and determined. They deserve their HEA.

I received a review copy. I am voluntarily leaving an honest review.

WOW

Mickey kicked this one out of the stadium! The Narrators did an amazing job as well. You will experience the heroine grow into the strong woman she ends up being. The hero is a fun loving jokester. Together they overcome their troubles and turn into an amazing couple.

The boy next door....

 I really loved reading this story. I mean what do you do when you come home and see a gorgeous guy mowing the lawn.... you have to stare, but try not to get caught 😏. Maddy was the girl next door that when Peyton moved in with his Grandmother had feelings for Maddy. However Maddy was dating his best friend. Well years later and life happens and Maddy ends up single and Peytons team on strike perfect opportunity to try to get the girl you always pined for. Lots of steamy scenes with some funny commentary also.

The narration by Sebastian York and CJ Bloom was awesome.

Sports romance of friends to lover’s trope

This audiobook has a bit for everyone. It’s a bit romantic comedy with friends from high school who try to have a friends with benefits type of break while Peyton is subbing at his old high school and on a walkout team situation with his NFL team. Maddy is the sweetheart girl who Peyton never believed he was good enough for who still lives next door with her parents. What happens is just meant to and these two find themselves in the end.

Loved the narration, I mean the unicorn could have done more but CJ Bloom is also wonderful in this audiobook too!

Crushing on the Substitute!

OMG! The chemistry and sexual tension through this book was insane! I loved it right from the beginning and quickly became addictive. The audio version of this book definitely brought it to a whole other level. These narrators were perfect in bringing Payton and Maddy's story to life. Amazingly written in dual POV, Mickey Miller brings another unputdownable romance in these characters you cant help fall in love with.

Five stars beautifully read

What a book, fantastically read by Sebastian York (his voice) swoon moment, and CJ Bloom love the accent. Their voices are very clear and you can understand what they are saying. They fit the part well. They bring the characters to life.About the story. Maddy Cooper lives in a small town and is a teacher, Payton O'Rourke plays football. When the NFL goes on strike he moves back into town, and takes a job at the school while also coaching. As you can imagine things start to heat up. While Payton tries to withhold Maddy's advance's, Maddy pushes all of his buttons. The characters are very loveable, with plenty of chemistry. Definitely worth a listen.

Lovely story

Maddie & Eric were together throughout school until he broke it off unexpectedly to travel. Payton has returned to his home town to visit his grandma temporary after his football team went on strike. The two have a chemistry she wasn't sure she was !ooking for. I loved that Payton knew what he wanted & was showing Maddie not just to accept things and to look for more.
The audio narration was fabulous I really enjoyed the flow of the words and found it so easy to listen to.

not your typical sports romance

I thought this would be a typical sports romance (a genre I'm not a huge fan of /I have read or listened to many ) but this is not that ! it has some brief moments in regards to the NFL and Peyton being a 'superstar' but it is so much more ! the romance between him and Maddy the fact its kind of forbidden thanks to her dads dislike of him and the fact he took over her classroom ! but the story just leaves you wanting so much more ! absolutely loved it , the narrators are great anyway and were perfect for their roles

Wow, this is wonderful, I had already read this story and thought it was great, but to listen to it has taken it to a different level, the narration by Sebastian and CJ was awesome and made me want to listen, they brought the characters to life.
