Sleeping With The Enemy (Book 4: An Out of Bounds Novel) by Tracy Solheim. New York:Berkley Sensation, 2015. 292 pages. ****
Bridgett Janik thought she had buried her hurt over a break up many years ago. Abandoned and pregnant in a foreign country, Bridgett vowed never to trust or love again. Nothing prepared her for being forced to work with and defend former lover Jay McManus. McManus owns a pro football team and is being sued by its own cheerleaders. Complicating the situation is the fact that Bridgett's boss is determined to nail the team account and Jay is equally determined not to lose Bridgett a second time. Trying to maintain a professional relationship while resisting a sexual chemistry and attraction, Bridgett and Jay discover that their past has secrets to tell and their story isn't over yet.
Even though this is book 4 in the series, it reads as a stand-alone novel. Entertaining with lots of sexual tension, will they give in or is it over between them? Strong alpha characters who are both used to winning, but at what cost? My only criticism is the small print on the pages, difficult for these eyes to read for any length of time. Fun, escapist reading.
I received a preview copy of this book from BookSparks and Netgalley for a review.
