I was given a review copy of Down by Contact by the author for an honest review.
What surprised me most about 'Down by Contact' was how much I loved the main character. I don't watch much football but I do see a lot of its players on the news. Unfortunately, most of the time they've been arrested for doing something really stupid. So imagine my surprise when I discovered what a sweet and likeable guy Dawson Drake turned out to be.
While making the play that gets his team into the playoffs, Dawson gets a career ending injury in the process. That's when we get to meet the team's owner, Miriame. I have to be honest upon first meeting her I didn't like her. Dawson's in pain and needs immediate medical attention and she doesn't even seem to notice or care. Right away she starts talking about how she will probably have to fire him.
This is a well written novella and I really enjoyed it. The story is sweet and sexy - a nice combination.
