Tennyson Clark is getting a life. First step: quitting her job as assistant to Dominic Anderson, star quarterback for the Washington Warriors, her best friend…and the man she’s been secretly in love with for years. But since the gorgeous, if overprotective playboy has only ever seen her as his BFF, she’s finally ready to relinquish her tattered fantasy and move on. Enter steps two and three: new job and new man.
Football is Dominic's life, and with his contract soon up for renewal, all his focus needs to be on the game.

But Tennyson—dependable, logical Tennyson—is making that next to impossible with her mysterious new job and her sudden interest in online dating. He doesn’t do relationships. But the thought of another man touching her sexier-than-hell curves has him suddenly wanting more from his best friend.

Indulging in hot, dirty, what’s-my-name sex with no strings and lots of benefits is simple, uncomplicated…until it’s not.

lright, I was excited to read Tennyson and Dominic’s story after getting little preview of them from Scoring With the Wrong Twin, which was great by the way. So my expectations were a little high going into this story, especially since it was tackling some of my fav tropes, unrequited love & friends to love. But I’m happy to say that it didn’t take long for me to see that my expectations for this story would be met .

The emotions was so on point and it really hooked me pulling me in. Tennyson and Dominic’s journey, experiencing their friendship to how Tennyson feelings developed into love for Dominic and how she dealt with it really got to me. Then watching Dominic’s feelings slowly change and grow was just added to my enjoyment.

The conflict that they both went through was deep, yet relatable and I enjoyed how things were handled even with Dominic’s stubborn, in denial self. Even though it was clear that they were meant for each other. But when the time came, and it did, the groveling from him was so sweet and satisfying.

I loved seeing them be friends and how it took time for their relationship to develop into more. Their connection was so strong, filled with history, great banter and strong caring that was really natural and progressed into this blazing relationship. Overall I really enjoyed reading Scoring Off the Field by Naima Simone and can’t wait to read more.
