My life revolved around two things. Football and my cock. And not necessarily in that order.
Being the head football coach for a top university in Texas had its ups and its downs.
The ups? Endless women to f*ck.
The downs? The politics that came with the job.
From the moment Aubrey Cain walked into my office, she turned my world upside down. Being forced to have her follow me around for a month was going to be a pain in the ass. Especially since I couldn’t keep my eyes off of her.
The best I’d hoped to come out of this was a few nights with her in my bed. I never imagined she’d be the game changer.
Brett Owens was my assignment.
Head football coach for a top college, bad boy reputation, short temper, and handsome good looks should have scared me off. But I was tougher than that.
From the first words out of his obnoxious, dirty-talking mouth, I knew it was going to be a long month. It wasn’t five minutes after meeting him, he hit on me. If only I had known his blue eyes would haunt my dreams and awaken a desire inside of me I never knew existed.
This was business. There was no way I would be tempted by him no matter how good looking he was or how many things he whispered in my ear.
He was only supposed to be my assignment. Not the man who threatened to destroy both my heart and my career. I would follow along with his playbook for now. But who would end up winning was anyone’s guess.
The Playbook is a stand-alone novel.

Review by Lisa Kane
Aubrey Cain works for ESPN as a reporting on college football. She's worked her ass off, belongs on the sidelines for the NFL and everyone knows it. But it's still a good old boy business and she just can't seem to shatter that glass ceiling. Yet.
"The big boys don't like it when the girls come play in their sandbox. Especially when we can build the castle bigger and stronger."
But she's about to get a break-she's going to be shadowing Brett Ownes, the coach for the University of Austin. He's college football's bad boy. Extremely successful and a total manwhore. She spotted him at a game a few weeks ago and found herself thinking he was one hot man, but not her type.
Brett Owens had a reputation. A few of them really. He was a ladies' man, he didn't like female reporters in his locker room, and he thought he was the best football coach on the planet.
Brett is more than a little aware of who Aubrey is, and unless it's to screw her, he isn't interested in having to spend time with her. In spite of his public image, he's a very private person and wants to keep it that way. He's also one over the top dirty talker!
These two are like oil and water-but could totally mix it up together for something spicy!
Aubree is determined to resist Brett, her friend Michelle's nickname for him hits this nail right on the head.
"Conservative. It will at least keep the pussy hound from sniffing around you."
My brows pinched together. "What did you call him?"
"A pussy hound."
Brett' equally intrigued-and he's having a tough time forgetting about Aubree long enough to hook up with his unending queue of gorgeous girls dying to be with the famous coach.
As if he Brett doesn't have enough going on in his life-between Aubree shadowing him for the next month for her article and spring training upon him to get his players ready for their season, he's about to have his world blow apart. When it looks like a foolish mistake on his part is going to lose him his career, Aubree comes to the rescue. She sees things in him that no one else bothers to see-she's not looking to spend a night with his image, she gets who he really is and not hasn't happened very often to Brett.
But life is anything but smooth for these two-Aubree has a tendency to act first and then think about her actions and sometimes that makes people feel trapped and forces a reaction from them that they might not have made if not pushed. Both Brett and Aubree are a little more than pig headed and they can be their own worst enemies.
"I can't give you the things I know you want. I think deep down you know that."
Will they get the Hail Mary pass that they need to find their way back together or are they destined to fumble the ball?
"I'm scared of you being gone. Of us living two separate lives, but I realized I'd rather have that over a life of living without you."
