    3.25 - 3.5 stars Despite I had a feeling I read this storyline a couple of times (only with different title and MCs), I still enjoyed this book. No manufactured drama – amazing!!! What I absolutely adored – hero’s love for his mother. Best thing ever!!! It was so sweet how he loved and cared for her. He called her every time before the game. This man was a great son. It was kind of foreseeable from the blurb, that the hero wasn’t a monk *lol*, so it would be lame to complain about his playboy’s pas 3.25 - 3.5 stars Despite I had a feeling I read this storyline a couple of times (only with different title and MCs), I still enjoyed this book. No manufactured drama – amazing!!! What I absolutely adored – hero’s love for his mother. Best thing ever!!! It was so sweet how he loved and cared for her. He called her every time before the game. This man was a great son. It was kind of foreseeable from the blurb, that the hero wasn’t a monk *lol*, so it would be lame to complain about his playboy’s past, dance-and-flirt scene with OW, and some of his comments and especially some of horrible comments of his teammates about other women/groupies etc. I can’t stand dumb horny males throwing insults and dirty jokes and all this mixed with slut-shaming… Ugh! It wasn’t OTT, and let be honest – almost all CR books use this trope. What I actually wanted to say – it would be a pleasant surprise to read a book without those clichés. Back to the positive sides: very likable heroine, smart and self-confident. I liked her, and I asked myself why such decent woman would be friends with an obviously shallow female (h’s BFF) – and this one was a defensive attorney? Like for real?!? What’s wrong with writing smart friends, who actually give a good advice and not a silly one?! A good surprise and personal thanks to the author – > the potential conflict (with possible outcome when the heroine were the guilty one and probably needed to grovel) was solved light and quick without any unnecessary drama and she didn’t need to apologize. Great! Call me a hypocrite, but I hate when a woman grovels; the only acceptable grovel - is a grovel done by a man. No extended epilogue 😯 I wanted more! Since it was probably my only book in this series, I wanted to read about MCs future together!

    Mindy Lou's Book Review

    Don't let the title of the series fool you. I've been pleasantly surprised to find that the Bad Boys of Sports are actually really good guys and I love it! Jason Stone may have been a player in the start of his career, but he's been around the block long enough to know when a woman wants him for his money and fame. And he wants nothing to do with that. When he meets Savannah for the first time, he finds it refreshing that she isn't impressed by who he is. Savannah has grown up in the business sin Don't let the title of the series fool you.

Jason Stone may have been a player in the start of his career, but he's been around the block long enough to know when a woman wants him for his money and fame. And he wants nothing to do with that. When he meets Savannah for the first time, he finds it refreshing that she isn't impressed by who he is. Savannah has grown up in the business since her father owns the Dallas Wranglers. When she feels obligated to attend a celebration over the teams win, she catches the eye of Jason Stone. She isn't normally tempted by the players but there is just something about Jason that keeps drawing her eye. I loved these two together. There is usually a characteristic about one or both of the MC's I don't like but I can't say that about Jason or Savannah. They were mature and treated the budding relationship in a mature manner. When Jason could have turned against Savannah for something that she had to do, he didn't. I love the fact that the author kept this interesting without taking the excess drama route. If you love sports romance, I highly recommend this series. ARC provided by NetGalley.

There’s nothing like a simple sports book with low angst to get you through a rainy day. Bad Business is a standalone and is part of the Bad Boys of Sports series. Stone is the new quarterback to the team. He’s not your typical Hero you read. He wanted to play for a new team and he plans on retiring after the season. I guess he’s just really mature and he’s ready to move on to something else. I was kind of surprised by Stone since I expected him to be full of himself, but I found him really sweet. Savannah’s dad owns the football team and she also manages the PR. I’m not too sure she took the PR stuff seriously but she does run around the football boys a lot. She is serious about her job and she’s all about work. I felt like Savannah wasn’t very mature, but I have to remember she’s in her twenties and her Daddy owns the team so there you go. I like her attitude towards work, but she had a thing for Stone real bad. Meaning she wanted to get into his pants. But not everything is that simple right? There were some slow moving parts in the book and I felt like there was a lot talk between friends and the main characters on how to make choices, so I valued the interactions between Stone and Savannah. Also the steamy parts broke apart from all of the talks. I’m an action kind of girl, that’s just me. I understood the issue and I knew Savannah had a job, but Stone is so sweet you couldn’t help but root for him. I also like it when the Hero chases after the Heroine. Overall, it was a pleasant read and it won’t be the last from this author. An ARC was provided http://amzn.to/2FbP1QJ

He may be thinking of retiring but for now that decision is pushed to the side as he leads the Dallas Wranglers toward the playoffs. Savannah grew up living and breathing football. As the owner’s daughter, she works as the PR woman to help clean up and improve any of the player’s images that have been tarnished. When her father instructs her to shadow Jason Stone in order to find out what his intentions are at the end of the season, she’s stuck in a quandary. She never gets involved with players and the fact that her father is throwing her into Stone’s sphere means she’s going to be spending a lot of time with her one night stand. I really enjoyed the relationship between this couple. With their lighthearted banter and their ability to talk openly with each other, it felt as though Stone and Savannah became friends first, even if it was after their one night stand. This is a very low angst read with no ow/om drama. The steam level is extreme once they get involved and we have some dirty talk from Stone that would make any woman melt. The beginning was a bit slow after their initial meeting but once they meet again things picked up the pace. Overall, this was a great read perfect for those who like less drama and more relationship mixed in with their football. I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book provided by NetGalley and Loveswept. All thoughts and opinions are my own. Dual POV Safe No apparent triggers

Even though this is book 2 in the Bad Boys of Sports series, each book can be read as a total standalone. Stone is the Dallas Wranglers starting quarterback and definitely a hit with the ladies. However Stones mind is in the game and he has a wise head on his shoulders so for the most part he side swerves advances from said ladies because he knows it's all about the fame and money with most of them and he ain't interested. That is until Savannah comes along. Savannah is VP of PR for the Dallas Wranglers and her Dad also happens to be the owner. Savannah is level headed and has turned down all the advances ever made from football players that is until Stone comes along and shocks her because Stone isn't your usual cocky, I love myself guy, he is grounded and doesn't throw himself at women like all the other players do. Will they both break their own rules or will they just break each others hearts? This book was a breath of fresh air to read. It has the usual hotness I have come to expect from a Nicole Edwards book but also has a beginning, middle and ending so it doesn't leave you hanging in anticipation for the next book in the series. The characters are lovable because they have that older maturity and their chemistry for each other is sizzling hot which appeals to me greatly. The reason I only gave it 4 stars is because I thought it could have done with some sort of large angsty twist in the plot line, maybe with Savannah's Dad or something. Overall though I loved it and can't wait to see whats next in this series.

    I received an ARC of this book for an honest review. Firstly, the guy on the cover screams more “rock star” than NFL quarterback. I use the cover models as my “picture of the person” when reading books. This cover doesn’t accurately represent the people in the story, in my opinion. Jason Stone, who just goes by Stone, is the QB for the Dallas Wranglers (which is a lame name, IMO). He has signed a one year contract and has plans to retire at the end of the year, despite only being 34. Savannah Andre I received an ARC of this book for an honest review.

She is attracted to Stone, but feels that she shouldn’t pursue a relationship with him because she’s the owners daughter. This book is overtly sexual. I don’t have a problem with that, but it was more about them having sex than about them developing an actual relationship. Up until the end it was all about ripping each other clothes off. I did like Jason a lot. He’s a good guy who loves his mother a lot. As a mother of boys, I have a lot of respect for that. Savannah was ok, but she was pretty insecure and skittish and could not stand up to her father and brothers, which I couldn’t respect. There was a lot of football in the book, and references to real times, which I liked (I’m a big football fan). Overall, this book just fell flat in character development.

I love sports romance novels, and this book did not disappoint. It was entertaining whether you’re a football fan or not. Jason Stone is a three time Super Bowl champion, the new quarterback to the Wranglers. A veteran looking to retire in his hometown. Jason is down right sinful and charming. Aside from his looks, he has a great career, a loving family, and a chance at a fourth Super Bowl Championship. The only thing he lacks is love. While out celebrating a win he spots a woman who catches his eye, in the best possible way. They decide to have a little fun and end up in a very steamy situation. But when Jason wakes up the next morning, the woman is long gone and he is left wondering about her. Savannah Andrews always told her self to stay away from football players. Growing up as the daughter of the Wranglers owner, she learned quickly that most football players were nothing but trouble. Savannah loved the game, and wanted nothing more then to be part of the team. When she spots Jason at a club, she thinks he is just like all the other single players. Savannah figured it would be a one and done deal, boy was she wrong. As Jason leads the team on a winning streak, the owner of the Wranglers was desperate to sign Jason on for a couple more years. Both Jason and Savannah decide to work together, under false pretenses, and for personal reasons. The chemistry was undeniable and they couldn’t get enough of each other. Their relationship is not easy, Savannah feels like she is misleading him, but Jason is not just an innocent bystander. The novel is sexy, charming, and well written. The characters were a lot of fun to read, they were great as a couple, but as individuals as well. I was excited to dive into the Wranglers world, and can not wait for the next book in the series. 4 star read!

    "I can tell that she wants me, but she doesn't want to want me." I'm so in love with this Bad Boys of Sports series. And Bad Business just revved my engine even higher with #HottieMcFootballMan, Jason Stone. I especially enjoyed Stone's first encounter with Savannah. Being the veteran quarterback that he is, everyone recognizes him, but she managed to remain anonymous. I was internally giggling when he thought to himself, I know my limits, and when it comes to women, one night is as far as "I can tell that she wants me, but she doesn't want to want me."

It was very entertaining to see them wind each other up, knowing that the big reveal was coming later. The taste of the forbidden was very enticing too. Not that it would be the first time a player and the bosses' daughter hooked up, just that it's not usually a good idea when the team's reputation is at stake. There's always the risk of the media insinuating that there were deals being made between the sheets. But I can vouch that's not what happened. Actually, it's a miracle the sheets didn't catch on fire with all the heat being generated between Stone and Savannah. But just to be sure, I hovered nearby with a fire extinguisher. I had to peek, just for safety's sake. That's my story and I'm sticking to it. 😉 When Savannah could no longer avoid seeing Stone 'at work' her identity is revealed. Finding out who she was should have put out the flames of his desire knowing it could affect his job with the Dallas Wranglers, but that wasn't the case. He wanted her. Unfortunately, she put him in #TheClientZone and he had to accept her decision until he could change her mind. When their jobs threw them together, their chemistry was apparent. They were very amusing with their witty banter, challenges, and bets. As they shared details about their lives, both claimed to be content with their single status and neither was interested in dating or relationships. But there was no denying the attraction they felt toward each other. I was cheering on the sidelines, mentally matchmaking and willing them to give in, but enjoying the suspense as they resisted. The football action was exciting too and there's a particular team player that I hope to see get his own book in the future. And I totally have a girl crush on Savannah's best friend. She is hilarious and I'm keeping my fingers crossed she ends up with a player of her own eventually, I'd love to spend some more time with her. I can't wait to see what comes next. The line forms here...

I don’t read very many sports romance books, but this one definitely did not let me down. Bad Business by Nicole Edwards is the second book in the Bad Boys of Sports series that can be read as a standalone. It’s fun, sexy, entertaining and swoony. Jason Stone is the new star quarterback to the Dallas Wranglers and three time Super Bowl champion who’s planning to retire in his hometown. He’s successful, sexy, handsome and incredibly charming. He’s got an awesome career and a long list of gorgeous women who wants a piece of him. However, Jason has his eyes and heart set on the sexy bombshell PR, Savannah Andrews. Only problem – her father is his boss. Savannah Andrews is the daughter of the Wranglers owner and has learned a thing or two about the dangers of falling for football players. She knows they’re nothing but trouble.. yet she can’t resist letting Jason Stone get close to her… dangerously close. This book was fun to read, but after reading several chapters, I actually put it aside for a while. Not the author or book’s fault. Sometimes, I just get into weird moods and I just wasn’t feeling the story. However, once I picked it up again, I was quite surprised to find myself intrigued with the story. There were a few slow parts, but overall the pacing was great. The steamy parts were spine-tingling awesome and the light drama/conflict made the book more interesting. I would have wanted some more angst or a bit of push and pull or even some action.. but overall, it was a delightful romance story. Savannah and Jason were wonderful characters. I enjoyed them together and loved how they were strong and amazing in their own ways. Savannah was a great lead — confident, hard-working, beautiful, and smart. Jason was pleasantly sweet and just a really great guy. I adored his relationship with his mother and thought they were just the cutest. There’s something so endearing about men who are close to their moms. I absolutely LOVED the chemistry between Jason and Savannah. It was electrifying and wickedly HOT! Their relationship also had that forbidden love vibe which made all their interactions a bit more exciting and so fun to read. Bad Business by Nicole Edwards is a lighthearted and playful romance story. It has charm, humor, some drama, and ridiculously steamy scenes! Definitely will be checking out the other books in the series. I received an Advanced Reader Copy of this book from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest and fair review.

    Savannah Andrews is not the kind of woman who mixes business with pleasure, especially when it comes to professional football players because she sees them as nothing but trouble, but when veteran quarterback, Jason Stone, takes over her father’s team, the Dallas Wranglers, she quickly learns that he’s not the typical cocky QB and that her first impression was way off base.

But regardless of Savannah’s attraction to Stone, crossing the line when it comes to their professional relationship is not something she wants to do, but that might be an inevitability once their paths collide, leaving them with a difficult decision to make…give in to their desire or draw a line and not allow their bodies and perhaps even their hearts to overpower their heads. I love that this series is titled the Bad Boys of Sports because it makes readers assume that the heroes will be nothing but manwhores whose bad behavior overshadows their athletic ability, but that is so not the case with Jason Stone, because even if he has to prove himself to the woman he desperately wants, the only time he’s a player is when he’s on the football field and that’s the reason Savannah has such a difficult time staying away from him even when it could change not only the dynamics of her career but also her relationship with her father since he’s the one who signs both of their checks. Nicole Edwards, once again, creates a steamy sports romance that is a great mix of lust and passion; it’s an insider’s look at how a professional sports team operates and it also illustrates how the determination of an athlete translates into an alpha male who will fight for the woman he wants in his bed for more than one night. 4 Poison Apples

One thing I have to mention that I absolutely loved about this novel is that there was no unnecessary drama. It was a good time read! Savannah and Stone's back and forth banter made for some crazy sexual tension. I literally had to put my kindle down a few times to catch a breath. Holy hell these two burned up the pages!

    Jason Stone may have been a player when he started his sports career but he isn’t now that his career is really going. He has seen what gold-diggers are out there and has been around too many times to know he was a true woman in his life and wants nothing to do with those fake out there. When he meets Savannah for the first time, he knows he is someone he wants to know more about for she is true and real, not fake.

When he meets Savannah for the first time, he knows he is someone he wants to know more about for she is true and real, not fake. Savannah has grown up in the business since her father owns the Dallas Wranglers. When she realizes she has caught Jason’s eye, she isn’t sure what she thinks about that at first. Players normally don’t catch her eye but something about Jason makes her look twice and think twice as hard. She is attracted to Stone, but feels that she shouldn’t pursue a relationship with him because she’s the owner’s daughter. Let me say this is a very sexual story and has a lot of intense chemistry between the H/h. I loved the premise of the story but something about the main characters rubbed me the wrong way. I am not sure what it was but they were annoying at times. I wanted to like them but they just came off as entitled and unlikeable. I tried to overlook it but it was hard. I liked the storyline and I enjoyed the secondary characters but it was hard to connect with the characters. I enjoy Nicole Edward’s writing normally but this story did not connect with me like she normally does. Overall, this was an ok to good story so I will just rate this as an ok story and look forward to her next book. My Rating: 3.9 stars ***** “I received an advanced copy of this book from the author at no cost to me."

    Gotta Get Stone’d This is the second book in Nicole Edwards “Bad Reputation” series - both are amazing yet completely different. Different sport, different characters the same praise worthy feeling you get once you read them. Which means you can read these books in any order, anytime - I recommend now. “I want her like I’ve never wanted anyone else in my life. And I’d like to think that’s merely a physical reaction, but I’m not sure that’s the case. In fact, I know that’s not the case.” Bad Bus Gotta Get Stone’d This is the second book in Nicole Edwards “Bad Reputation” series - both are amazing yet completely different. Different sport, different characters the same praise worthy feeling you get once you read them. Which means you can read these books in any order, anytime - I recommend now. “I want her like I’ve never wanted anyone else in my life. And I’d like to think that’s merely a physical reaction, but I’m not sure that’s the case. In fact, I know that’s not the case.” Bad Business is a football related story directly focused on Jason Stone -quarterback. Jason is more than just a lovable character - he is sexy, hot, kind hearted, a family man and an amazing football player. There’s no time for love when you are completely focused on winning a Super Bowl for your new team in your home town. Does a particular distraction cause Stone to fail his attempts to give his team the win or not? Does he just end up retiring or signing on for more? This is such a great and moving story about love that once again Edwards easily consumes you from page one. Her tendency to write some of the hottest scenes I’ve ever read is a gift she excels at. This book is just another reason why I will always be a loyal reader to Nicole Edwards. She has created quite a few masterpieces for me to read and this book fits perfectly in that category. “For the first time in my life, I’m taking what I want, consequences be damned.” *This review is affiliated by The Book Bistro

    This was another fantastic story by Nicole Edwards. I love a good sports romance and this one absolutely fits the bill. Jason Stone, aka Stone, the Quarterback of his team is out for a night of fun when he meets a woman who quickly gets into his head and under his skin. He soon learns his mystery woman from that night will be around more then he imagined. Especially since her father owns the team he plays for.

He soon learns his mystery woman from that night will be around more then he imagined. Especially since her father owns the team he plays for. Savannah is used to football players saying they're interested in her, but really being interested in her football connections. But the moment she meets Stone, she notices how different he seems. And the more time they spend together the more she realizes this may just be the guy who's actually interested in just her. I honestly loved Stone. He and Savannah had great chemistry and I loved how his bad boy reputation had a really mature spin on it. Nicole Edwards just did an amazing job with this leading man and he's going to be one of my top favorites in sports romance. Confident with a good head on his shoulders. Kind and respectful, especially to his mother. I'm definitely in love. I easily lost myself in this story. It was well written with a great flow, awesome and well developed characters, and the icing on the cake was the moment when everything could have gone wrong and people could have overreacted but finally a main character handled their problem like an adult. It was a perfect reading moment. This 5 star romance is one I very highly recommend.

Jason Stone was drafted to the Wranglers in hopes he could turn this team around and bring home a winning season. With the season almost over that is exactly what he has done. Even though the season is almost over Savannah has not been introduced to Jason. When they first meet she hides her identity from him. After a heated night she vanishes without a goodbye. Knowing she will eventually run into him again has her tied up in knots. Stone can't stop thinking about her so when they meet again he is not angry about her with holding who she is. Savannah know mixing business with pleasure is a bad business decision but she can not seem to stay away. Will their need for each other affect his game or can they get the win in both the game and life. This was a great addition to the series. *** Advanced copy provided in exchange for an honest review. ***

Stone has only signed a one year contract but with the Wranglers on a winning streak and the odds of making the playoffs getting better after every win, her father wants to know what it will take to get him to sign a contract extension. The problem is, Stone isn't sure if he wants to continue to play the game. He's had a great career and the Super Bowl rings to prove it. He wouldn't mind one more to add to his collection, but he's not sure if he's willing to put his body through another few years of torture for a chance to win a couple of more rings. The more Savannah learns about Stone, the more she likes the man off the gridiron. He's smart, funny and seems to really like her. Not just because she's the boss's daughter but may be in spite of it. I enjoyed reading about Stone and Savannah and the way their romance played out over the course of the book. The book took a familiar storyline (sports romance) and made it new again. ~~Wicked Reads Review Team~~

Sports romance is one of my favorite sub-genres. There is just something about it that I tend to gravitate towards. And this book was quite entertaining right from the start. Stone is one sexy dirty talking hero who instantly had my attention. When his gaze lock on the beautiful brunette with the brilliant green eyes, he just has to know her. Savannah isn’t interested in messing around with football players. Growing up around the sport, she knows all that goes on behind the scenes. But when she’s approached by a certain gorgeous athlete she can’t help but be taken by his witty banter and gripping personality. Both of them are clear about not wanting anything serious; they’re just looking for a little fun. As the story goes on you get to see how compatible they are together. I really enjoyed their developing friendship and feelings - it was fun, steamy and exciting. My only minor complaint is that it became slightly repetitive towards the end. This was my first read by this author and it definitely won’t be my last; her writing style is one I enjoyed. If you enjoy a good sports romance with a twist, I’d definitely give this one a try. ** I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book, provided by the publisher - through NetGalley.

He wants close to Savannah not her father. But he’s a player and she is wondering if he’s playing her. I recommend this book and anything by this author.

Savannah knows exactly who Stone is, and is not sure if she is ready to be involved in a player like him. But here's the thing, Stone wants more. He is ready to retire, and wants to settle down. I really enjoyed watching Stone chase Savannah, and I loved these characters together.

Despite her intelligence, her dad sometimes uses her for her looks rather than her degree. When she lets her hair down for a night, it seems that the connection that was made won't let go. Savannah and Stone have to navigate a working relationship and a private relationship. It is a sweet story that follows their choices and how they navigate. For people who have read Edwards' books before, this is definitely not erotica - but more of a true romance. Stone and Savannah's chemistry is still hot, but they have a more organic relationship. Overall, this is a quick read that is not angsty or full of turmoil.

The more he gets to know the stunning woman the more he wants even though he knows nothing about her. Savannah on the other hand knows everything about the triple Super Bowl champion and new quarterback for the Dallas Wranglers. As the daughter of the owner of the Wranglers it’s her job to know the players. What isn’t her job is to hook up with any of them, however this sexy man is just too irresistible. I liked how Stone and Savannah meet as strangers and the banter they had was hilarious. The sex scenes were sizzling as can be expected from Ms Edwards but even outside the bedroom this pair were hot. It was good how Savannah kept her identity a secret and made it all the more exciting when the reveal was made. There was plenty of depth between the pair besides the hot steamy scenes which gave a good balance to this sports romance. Not being a sports fan myself it didn’t go into drastic detail about the sport which is always a good thing when none of it makes sense to me. Haha! The banter between the secondary characters was a winner too and I liked the hint of secrecy and suspense Savannah’s father’s task relayed. Overall this was another winner from Nicole Edwards with lovable characters, a great storyline and plenty of passion and intensity. Four stars.

Can’t really help it when your dad own a football team. Her job has always been PR and PR prep. And with all the football players in her life, she has learned a thing or two about keeping them at a distance. That is until Stone. Stone does not seem to want anything from her, only her. Stone was a nice surprise as an athlete. He was sensible, smart, sexy and could be sweet. Savannah was determined to keep things professional with all the players on her dad’s team. But one look at Stone and she was a goner. As they spend more time together, they get to know each other. I loved how they interacted with each other and how light their relationship was. I love reading sports romances and Nicole Edwards’ Bad Business fit right in. It was steamy, sexy and so much fun to read. It was not full of angst and drama, but sweet and charming. Happy reading!
