For Barrett Cassidy, playing defense for the Tampa Hawks is a dream come true. And now he may have discovered his dream woman. Harmony Evans, once the sweet, gawky teenage sister of his best friend and teammate has grown into a smart, gorgeous woman with moves he finds hard to resist. But he knows he can’t get involved with his best friend’s sister—it’s guy code.
Harmony has always gone after what she wants with single-minded determination, from her independence to her education to her career in social work. She never expected her youthful crush on Barrett to develop into something deeper. And she’s not about to let some ridiculous man rules or her brother stand in her way.
When the chemistry is this combustible, lines tend to get crossed. And when Barrett and Harmony’s secret gets out, it just might be game over.
I have mixed feelings for the Play by Play series because some are great while others aren't so great for me and despite looking forward to this book this was one that wasn't so great for me. I get the whole liking sibling friends or friends siblings angle but this time around it really didn't work for me I especially didn't care for Drake being obsessively controlling manipulative creepily possessive and just plain rude.
It put me off so much that it carried over to Harmony's scenes and her allowance of his behavior irked me even more.
I get being protective of your siblings but their relationship dynamic bugged the crap out of me so much that it strong armed her relationship with Barrett. I spent so much time being pissed at Drake that I couldn't enjoy the rest of the book when his scenes were over. I didn't really care for any of the resolution so I wasn't impressed with the ending. I almost didn't finish the book but I have a hard time not finishing one unless its absolutely impossible. I really wanted to like this book so I was disappointed I wasn't happier with it.
