Sum It Up! I highly recommend!    

When post-grad Rachael Hamilton accidentally gatecrashes a pro-athlete party, she ends up face-to-face with Ryan Carter, the NFL’s most beloved quarterback.

While most girls would be thrilled to meet the attractive young millionaire, Rachael would rather spend time with books than at sporting events, and she has more important things to worry about than romance. Like her parents pressuring her to leave her unpaid publishing internship for law school. Or her brother, who’s obliviously dating Rachael’s high school bully. Or that same high school’s upcoming reunion.

Still, when Ryan’s rookie teammate attaches himself to Rachael, she ends up cohosting Friday night dinners for half a dozen football players.

Over pancake brunches, charity galas, and Alexander the Great Rachael realizes all the judgments she’d made about Ryan are wrong. But how can a Midwestern Irish-Catholic jock with commitment problems and an artsy, gun-shy Jewish New Englander ever forge a partnership? Rachael must let down her barriers if she wants real love–even if that opens her up to pain that could send her back into her emotional shell forever.
        From my Goodreads comments:
LOVED THIS STORY...how or why two stars are sitting up there when the book is not even released and no reviewers have read/rated??
Hotties who have great lines...awesome
Book loving girl...come on super awesome!
I totally enjoyed this story.  The interplay between Rachael and her new found “guy-friends” is awesome.  I wanted to sit down and eat pizza and watch football with them.  The instant chemistry that Ryan and Rachael felt was great, but I loved their sparring even more.  Add to the mix meals, parties, smexy shoes and two “normal” people getting to know each other.
Ryan is a famous football player and he is gorgeous, rich, fun loving, but he is also totally high on himself.  Or at least that is how he likes to play it with women.  When Ryan first meets Rachael, he can tell she is different from the wannabes.  But as the QB and captain of his team, he still wants to protect his buddies from women who might get too close.
Rachael was just trying to meet up with some friends when she happened into someone else’s condo.  The only quiet room seemed to be the bedroom, so she slipped in hoping to make a call to find her friends.  Getting caught by Ryan wasn’t too bad, but when she had to return the next day to get her cashmere scarf she dropped, Ryan grew hostile.  Because, when retrieving said scarf, the whole O-line seemed to think she was there to play poker and eat pizza with them…which she totally enjoyed.  In Rachael, the team found their mascot.  Unfortunately, Ryan doesn’t like it, but he begins to tag along to “team” dinners at Rachael’s for the sake of the team.  I enjoyed the dialogue, quick wits and funny situations almost as much as the angst and lust!
I loved these two as they both let their hair down, let it hang out and let the chips fall where they may…They let their relationship happen and they nurtured it in a way that so genuine and loving.  I highly recommend!  Enjoy!
