The Manwhore Versus The Maneater
Finn McManus thrives on his reputation as a player’s player – a term that has nothing to do with his years as a professional athlete. A notorious flirt and ladies man, the handsome, charming retired football player rarely dates a woman more than a few times, and shies away from relationships like they were a contagious disease. And despite his parents’ decades long, blissfully happy marriage, Finn just can’t see himself ever being in the same situation.
Delilah Ferris has acquired her own reputation over the years as something of a maneater. She makes no bones about the fact that she expects to call the shots in the relationship, and that she’ll never be any man’s fool. And when she meets her new neighbor Finn for the first time, she automatically puts him in the same category as her handsome, playboy father – the same father who not only broke her heart too many times to count but broke their family as well. Delilah has always vowed to steer clear of heartbreakers like Finn McManus, unwilling to ever fall victim to his charms.
But when the gorgeous, tempting Delilah quickly becomes the only woman Finn has eyes for, he pulls out all the stops to convince her to go out with him. And if Delilah weakens her resolve and agrees, will she regret her decision sooner than later? Or will the coach finally manage to whip this player into shape?
Can’t believe today is the last day! It has been such a blast! Aaaahhh, I have had so much fun this week, getting to know Janet on and off the blog, reading about her books. I now have all of them, so my reviews will be following very excited by this!!! Don’t want the party to stop!
So first off, I have an excerpt from the new release of The Player gets Coached, and then guess what a giveaway to win an ebook of this book too!! Ok, let me get you excited about the book first!
She placed her hand over his, her brown eyes sparkling as she nodded. “I did enjoy myself, Finn. Very much. It was really a lovely evening, and I can’t thank you enough for the fabulous dinner and those fantastic seats at the symphony. I just hope you weren’t too bored.”
He shook his head. “You know, truth be told, I totally expected to be bored stiff, figured I’d have to force myself to stay awake the whole time. But it was surprisingly entertaining. Not that I’m any sort of expert, but I thought the band was really good.”
Delilah hooted with laughter. “For future reference, it’s an orchestra not a band. And, yes, they are very, very good. World renowned, in fact, and their recordings have won a number of Grammy awards. But I’m glad you enjoyed it and weren’t bored out of your mind. I realize this evening probably took you out of your comfort zone quite a bit, so I’m especially appreciative.”
“Appreciative enough to agree to a second date?” he asked hopefully. “Or maybe we should think of it as a first date, since you kept insisting that tonight wasn’t a real date.”
She hesitated for a few seconds, then gave a quick, decisive nod. “Okay. We can do that, yes. And we can even call it a real, bonafide date this time. Just let me know when, though weekends are better for me, of course.”
“I’ll text you tomorrow, okay? And that’s a promise, Delilah,” assured Finn, trying mightily to restrain himself from jumping up and down with triumphant glee. “I know you probably think I’m one of these assholes who tells a woman he’s going to call or text and then never does. And I won’t deny that I’ve done just that way too many times to count. But none of those women were you, and while I may not be the brainiest guy in the world, even I’m not stupid enough to blow whatever sort of chance I might have with you.”
And while she was still staring up at him wide-eyed, clearly startled by his impassioned little speech, he threw her another curveball by leaning down, giving her a quick, almost impersonal little kiss on the cheek, and then telling her, “Thanks for one of the best evenings of my life. Sleep tight, Delilah.”
Finn winked at her, trying
Okay I love Finn! Yay!
