This player’s got a lot to learn if he wants to score . . . with the boss’s daughter.

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

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.

This is my first Nicole Edwards book. She’s known for her super steamy reads and if you are sports and steam fan, then this book is for you.

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
Despite being one of the bad boys of sports, Jason’s dedication is to his team and the game. 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.

Hawt damn...

The storyline is a classical equation of 'forbidden romance in a working place' yet the 'forbidden' part here is really non-existing, meaning that the spotlight is actually set on a 'growing feelings' between the main characters over their obvious sexual chemistry.

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.

It was ok. Nice and easy. No drama, nothing to remember.
Their chemistry is off the charts, though, but nothing really happened, except lots of sex.

Bad Business is the second book in the Bad Boys of Sports series and each book can be read as a standalone...Jason Stone is thirty-four and a three-time Super Bowl Champion. His the newest acquisition on the Dallas Wranglers and plays as a quarterback. Although now, that he is bringing the team up, for the next Super Bowl Championship, every team wants him, but he wants to retire.

A sexy, entertaining sports romance, Bad Business by Nicole Edwards is the second book in the Bad Boys of Sports series. I love sports romance novels, and this book did not disappoint. It was entertaining whether you’re a football fan or not.

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 it g

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.

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

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.

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.”

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.

There’s something about sports romance that makes for some the hottest reads; I’m claiming it’s the stamina our heroes tend to have. Edwards next Bad Boys of sports is filled with its moments of sexy times but it’s also a feel-good romance. With little drama and a focus on a forbidden romance that both our hero and heroine continue to fight, Bad Business was a fun read.

Savannah is used to being around football players. Her father has been the owner of a NFL team for as long as she can remember. Because of this she has steered away from any relationships with football players. When she started working for her father she stayed with her professional only status. That is until Jason Stone.

Jason Stone was drafted to the Wranglers in hopes he could turn this team around and bring home a winning season. With the seas

Bad Business is the second installment in the Bad Boys of Sports series.
I’d say this could be read as a standalone because I didn’t find any trouble enjoying or following along.

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.

This is the 2nd in a series. I did not read the first but I don’t think I missed anything as a result. This one read like a stand alone for me. I loved Jason and Savannah. Their romance was so good. It was a really good sports romance with strong, realistic characters. I like that the story felt real and the hero/heroine felt like actual people.

I was given this book for an honest review by Wicked Reads.

This is a typical sports romance story. Stone is a high profile quarterback who is helping to bring a lower team up to the Superbowl again. He is cocky and a smart player. He lives for the game. But, when Savannah catches his eye, he'll do what he can to make sure that he is what she needs.

I adore Nicole Edwards but for the first time, one of her books just didn't do much for me. I struggled to even finish the book. There are two reasons that I can identify: Firstly, the book had waaay more information about the sport of football than I ever wanted to know, and secondly, I couldn't seem to connect with the h. There just wasn't anything about her personality or her life that I could admire or relate to.

I LOVED this book. I love sports romance, the fact that Danny Amendola was mentioned as a hotty of the NF, I love Nicole Edwards writing and her knowledge of football,... I just loved everything about this book! I finished it in one sitting. I didn't not want to put it down!

This is the second book in the Bad Boys of Sports series but each can be read as a standalone.

Jason Stone and Savannah Andrews meet in a local night club when their eyes connect across the crowded space. Jason isn’t looking for a hook up, in fact he is so over that as reaching his mid-thirties he wants something more. 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 champ
