Summary
Brynn Sterling owes a lot to reality television and professional athletes. Her bar hit new heights of success after becoming a local haunt for the Denver Mustangs players and their WAGS. Although she's grateful, that doesn t mean she's crazy. And that's exactly what she would be if she ever considered dating a professional athlete. Even if it were Maxwell Lewis, whose shy smile makes her wonder what's going on behind those beautiful brown eyes. Maxwell knew from the moment he met Brynn that she was going to change his life. Can they both put their hang-ups aside and give love a chance?
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Martin continues her Playbook series, following Fumbled (2019) and scores again with this perfectly blended sporty-spicy/rom-com cocktail that's so good, you could name a drink after it. And Brynn Sterling, the sassy owner of HERS, the hottest female-owned bar in Denver, does just that: name drinks after her fabulous friends, the Lady Mustangs, that is, the wives and girlfriends of players for the Denver Mustangs. For many years, Brynn has had a front-row seat to the drama her girlfriends endure, which makes her reluctant to get involved with any of the smoking-hot athletes who frequent her establishment. Maxwell Lewis could be the exception to her rule, but his polite and shy demeanor keeps him from approaching. They dance around their unspoken crush for years until an explosive moment in the bar finally breaks the ice. Meanwhile, Martin provides a behind-the-scenes look at life with a professional athlete: fancy clothes, parties, the private suite at the stadium, and TV cameras filming it all for the newest reality TV show, Love the Player. Past family troubles threaten Brynn and Maxwell's romantic progress, but the support of their Mustangs friends carries them over the finish line.--Kristina Giovanni Copyright 2019 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "The lighthearted third sports romance in Martin's Playbook series (after Fumbled) focuses as much on strong female friendship as it does on love. Brynn Sterling owns HERS, a female-centered Denver sports bar and the monthly meeting place for the wives and girlfriends of sports players (WAGS) on their new reality show Love the Player. Though Brynn values her friendships with the WAGS, she resists their encouragement to act on her feelings for NFL player Maxwell Lewis, because she doesn't want to get sucked into their dramatic, high-profile world. Despite being one of the Mustangs' most popular players, Maxwell is extremely shy and has been unable to act on the crush he's been nursing on Brynn for years. When he finally works up the courage and Brynn gives into her friends' pestering, Brynn and Maxwell realize they'll have to help each other get over their past heartbreaks in order to move forward. What the slow-burning love story lacks in drama it makes up for with heart. Readers will be delighted by this sweet romance. Agent: Jessica Watterson, Sandra Dijkstra Literary. (Dec.)Correction: An earlier version of this review incorrectly identified this book as the second in a series."
