“No strings, no rings.” That’s Luke Archer’s motto. As the champion quarterback for the New York Empire—not to mention a self-made billionaire—Luke has given up on serious relationships. Women only want him for one thing: the thrill of being with a superstar. And he likes it that way too. But when his best friend announces he’s retiring from football to spend time with his wife and kids, Luke feels like he’s missing out on something much bigger than his career.
The assistant concierge in Luke’s luxury high-rise, Miranda Tate fled her family’s dairy farm to come to the bright lights of New York City. She works hard to move up and sends her spare earnings home to her brother. When she and Luke meet, there’s an instant sexual attraction which turns steamy quickly, but they’re in completely different leagues. Could Miranda be just the woman Luke needs to win the most important game of his life?
The All-Star Antes Up is a fantastic read. I really enjoyed the fact that the emotional depth and soul exploration in how Luke discovers and really find himself and not just that but embraces his future potential as a person, a man and as a partner.
I felt the passion was really fantastic but the sex regardless of how steamy it was became second to the journey I felt myself as a reader was a part of. I really favor books that take both seduction and self development to a whole new level.
While most sports books aren't always a top favorite read for me but I had no problem cheering from the sidelines for our h/h and their victorious finish. Loved it!
