Series- First & Ten # 1
By- Jean C. Joachim
Genre- Sports Romance
He wants to find a wife. She doesn’t want to marry again –ever. Not exactly a match made in heaven. Ten years ago, Griff Montgomery, star quarterback of the Kings and womanizer, became a stand-in father for his widowed sister’s kids. His happy family life collapsed when she and her new husband moved to California. Griff wants his own family. But where does a “player” go to find his ideal mate?
Having sworn off marriage forever, Lauren Farraday barely kept her life together after her divorce. With her career shaky and depression closing in, the last thing she needed was a courtroom battle with a sexy athlete.
Forced, by a judge, into an uneasy truce, the pair denied their growing chemistry. Wary of Griff’s reputation with women, and hiding a secret, Lauren keeps him at arm’s length. Determined, Griff marches toward his goal. Can the quarterback handle the truth or will he walk away, like he always has in the past?

Never mind what really happened, the judge says Griff & Lauren must share custody. It’s a done deal, Spike is the world’s cutest matchmaker.
I do not generally choose to read sports themed books but decided to try and the blurb interested me. I am glad I did, I truly enjoyed this book. I would recommend this book to others because it is well written and a nice story. Some might find it predictable but I found it to be cute and touching. I would like to thank Jean C. Joachim for allowing me to read and review this book for her, it was a pleasure. Four stars for Griff Montgomery, Quarterback.
