Bodhi Shine, my brother’s best friend, is the closest thing I have to an enemy. Tall, with irritatingly good looks, this cocky jerk has been a thorn in my backside for as long as I can remember.

We’re like oil and water—we just don’t mix.

I do my best to avoid him, but now that he’s the new running back for the Charleston Pirates and staying with my twin, that’s damn near impossible.

And when we find ourselves as guests at the same beach house, there’s no way to keep my distance. Forced to spend time together, it’s not long before our mutual attraction wins out over common sense.

Although I remind myself of all the reasons I should resist the rookie… making the wrong choice has never felt so right.


The last in the Charleston Pirates Series, but it is easily read as a standalone.
The blurb states enough to give an idea of who are featured , a sports romance, with the added ‘brother’s best friend’ concept.
Told in DUAL POV’s, it’s another well written, great attention to detail, slow burn story that I got fully invested in right from the start. I loved that the previous characters also appear, there is some hilarious banter back and forth, and a little bit of drama along the way, not only that but with the introduction of some new characters, it’s a hint as to what Jacob may have planned for future stories!
I won’t say any much more so not to spoil it!


Jacob Chance grew up in New England and still lives there today. He’s a martial artist, a football fan, a practical joker, and junk food lover.

A USA Today bestselling author of sports romance and romantic suspense, Jacob plans on writing many more stories.
