Laying it all on the line for love…
Mia Cresswell is tired of being good.
Achieving geek status at college doesn’t equate with fun. So when she heads home to her dad’s tennis academy in Santa Monica on spring break, she’s determined to be bad. And hot Aussie tennis star Kye Sheldon is just the guy to help her do it.
However, Kye’s troubled past continues to dog him and attending the Cresswell Tennis Academy is his last chance at the big time. He can’t afford to screw up…by screwing the boss’s daughter.
But Mia and Kye’s relationship is much more than a vacation fling.
Will it be game, set, match, when the truth is revealed?
Or will Mia and Kye have a real shot at love all?
Trust me to pick the only bad boy on the planet with a conscience.
I didnt know what else to do to get Kye to sleep with me, bar strip and run around the tennis court naked.
This isnt a good idea, he mumbled, sounding as tortured as I felt.
Good. Because if we didnt do this within the next five minutes, Id combust from wanting him.
I pressed against him one last time, wishing I had the guts to touch him there. We either do this, or youre going to spend the night under a cold shower or working off your frustration on the court.
The moment I said it, I had an idea. A brilliant one.
Trying to hide a triumphant smirk was almost impossible. How about this. We play one game of tennis. I win, we have sex. You win, we dont.
His eyes narrowed, sizing me up. You said you played badly, so whats the catch?
No catch. I shrugged, mustering my best innocent expression. Come on. What have you got to lose?
Apart from the game, because if theres one thing I knew about tennis, it was how to not play fair. I was average on the court. But Id once watched Dani bring a guy to his knees by seducing him one shot at a time.
Now it was my turn to see if I had what it took to distract a gun player long enough that he fudged four points so we ended up in bed.
Youre giving in too easily. He shook his head. I dont trust you.
Shouldnt that be my line? I smiled and flipped the catch on the storage box tucked outside the fence.
Fine, well play one game, then Im heading to bed, he muttered, rummaging through the rackets before he found one he fancied: testing the weight in his hand, fiddling with the strings, inspecting it.
Thats what Im hoping for, I murmured, flashing him a smug grin when he glared at me.
