This player’s got a lot to learn if he wants to score . . . with the boss’s daughter.
Football is more than a game to me. It’s my calling. Becoming the Dallas Wranglers’ starting quarterback before I retire is a dream come true, but with a few wins under my belt, suddenly everyone wants a piece of me. And even though being in the spotlight has its perks—beautiful women, star treatment, more beautiful women—what really gets me sweating is the watchful gaze of my sexy-as-hell PR coach, Savannah Andrews. The catch? Her father is kind of my boss. . . .
Savannah: In my family, football is big business. When your dad owns an NFL franchise, you learn a thing or two about schmoozing, and from what I can tell, it’s not a skill in Jason Stone’s playbook. Sure, the veteran quarterback is literally larger than life. With broad shoulders, muscles on muscles, and a mouth made for kissing, he may be one of the hottest men in the league—and I should know. I’ve turned down enough players to start my own all-star team. But those guys just wanted to get close to my father. Meanwhile, Stone is getting temptingly close . . . to me.
The Bad Boys of Sports come to life in these sexy standalone novels by New York Times bestselling author Nicole Edwards:
BAD REPUTATION | BAD BUSINESS
I don’t read very many sports romance books, but this one definitely did not let me down. Bad Business by Nicole Edwards is the second book in the Bad Boys of Sports series that can be read as a standalone. It’s fun, sexy, entertaining and swoony.
Jason Stone is the new star quarterback to the Dallas Wranglers and three time Super Bowl champion who’s planning to retire in his hometown. He’s successful, sexy, handsome and incredibly charming. He’s got an awesome career and a long list of gorgeous women who wants a piece of him. However, Jason has his eyes and heart set on the sexy bombshell PR, Savannah Andrews. Only problem – her father is his boss.
Savannah Andrews is the daughter of the Wranglers owner and has learned a thing or two about the dangers of falling for football players. She knows they’re nothing but trouble.. yet she can’t resist letting Jason Stone get close to her… dangerously close.
This book was fun to read, but after reading several chapters, I actually put it aside for a while. Not the author or book’s fault. Sometimes, I just get into weird moods and I just wasn’t feeling the story. However, once I picked it up again, I was quite surprised to find myself intrigued with the story. There were a few slow parts, but overall the pacing was great. The steamy parts were spine-tingling awesome and the light drama/conflict made the book more interesting. I would have wanted some more angst or a bit of push and pull or even some action.. but overall, it was a delightful romance story.
Savannah and Jason were wonderful characters. I enjoyed them together and loved how they were strong and amazing in their own ways. Savannah was a great lead — confident, hard-working, beautiful, and smart. Jason was pleasantly sweet and just a really great guy. I adored his relationship with his mother and thought they were just the cutest. There’s something so endearing about men who are close to their moms.
I absolutely LOVED the chemistry between Jason and Savannah. It was electrifying and wickedly HOT! Their relationship also had that forbidden love vibe which made all their interactions a bit more exciting and so fun to read.
Bad Business by Nicole Edwards is a lighthearted and playful romance story. It has charm, humor, some drama, and ridiculously steamy scenes! Definitely will be checking out the other books in the series.

TAKEN FROM THE AUTHOR’S WEBSITE
I live in Texas with my husband and our youngest of 3 children. The two older ones have ventured out in the world on their own. I’ve got a beautiful granddaugther and a rather spoiled grand-puppy.. Oh, and Colt and I also have four dogs. Most of the time, you can find me hiding in my writing cave. If I’m not there, I’m probably hanging out with the family, reading, or watching hockey and football. One thing for sure… I’m always trying to have fun.
