➳Finished in one sitting because I could not get over how great and sweet this story was...

➳Football players tent to have the stereotypical outlook of being tough and rough around the edges... Not Beaux Hale... he is as sweet as pie and anything sweeter in between. Him and Sam not only have instant chemistry, but so much more to share and conquer the world with. His past and her present title have brought them together to become one of my favorite couples out there for sure.

If every man was like Beaux Hale, then we'd finally achieve world peace!

Filthy Player was just a downright delicious read! This book overflows with heat, heart, and a happily ever after. Sexual chemistry sears the pages, and the emotional connections hit you right in the feels.

Man, oh man....I loved this book! Filthy Player was nothing like I expected, but in the best way possible. Passion, heartache, and devotion are just a few of the remarkable qualities this book possesses. The story was exce
I’m so overcome with feelings for Beaux and Paige’s story! I wasn’t even 20% into FILTHY PLAYER and I already had tears streaming down my face.

I love books where the hero just plain loves the heroine. Not all the time, as sometimes a little angst and drama can be fun, but it really works well in this story. I think because Paige has a lot to deal with in her life already and it is appealing to read a story where the romance removes the stress instead of adding to least mostly.

Beaux is a player, and he makes less than a positive first impression on Paige, although he redeem

I do love sports romances especially with a six feet four inches of muscle ripped quarterback called Beaux.
If you read Dirty Player this is Shannon’s little brother Beaux who meets Paige who  works as a waitress in the Bar and grill next to the Stadium. Paige has had bad luck with men, so when he asks her for a date she shoots him down. Then after overhearing his conversation she throws an ice bucket over his head.

Loved it!! Beaux is so sexy and adorable at the same time. Paige and Beaux have made my heart melt multiple times!
Paige had to give up her life to come back home and care for Sam, her father. After two consecutive strokes, Sam is no longer the same man and Paige will do everything to provide him the best. Even though she has two jobs, Paige struggles to make ends meet. Needless to say, that she has no time for herself and for dating!

Beaux is something else, I fell in love with that man, “jeez, woman. Get your head out of the gutter. I’m not always thinking about ***.” She flashed me a look and I quickly amended my statement. I raised my hands. “Okay. When I’m around you, I’m pretty much always thinking about ***, but that time, I wasn’t talking about it honestly.” Beaux sometimes has to just take charge of things, “good. Now stop fighting me, let me effing help you, and kiss me again.” I really enjoyed this book, I loved Be ...more

Spoiler alert: the player isn’t filthy. Beaux is sweet and charming and sexy and EVERYTHING. I loved this book so hard! The heroine is fantastic too - Paige is fierce, independent, and protective. They are so perfectly matched in a way that I've been missing in the books I've read recently. And this book hits all of my bullet points for a five star read: likable/relatable characters, an Alpha male, strong heroine, a plot that involves more than the actual romance, a little suspense (though the b ...more

This is the first book that I have had the chance to read by Stacey Lynn and I enjoyed it immensely. I now need to go back and read book one in this series. Filthy Player can be read as a standalone and although it has characters from the first book in the series, I did not feel like I was missing out on anything. When I read the blurb for this book, I knew it was right up my alley. Sports Romances are one of my favorite genres. Filthy Player is told in dual POV, something that I really enjoy.

Filthy Player is the second book in the Rough Riders series about hot football stars.

Beaux Hale is the hot newest signing to the team who lead them to victory last season. With the new season starting up, the team take some downtime in a local sports bar and it is where Beaux meets gorgeous Paige Halloway. He’d seen her waitressing in the bar before and she had something about her that drew Beaux to her. When the team sit in her service area Beau takes his chance but he didn’t recon on the sassy

Filthy Player is the kind of feel good romance novel that keeps a perpetual smile on your face. Beaux is a cocky football quarterback who has the talent (he is just coming off a Super Bowl Win) and good lucks to back it up. He can have his choice of women, but one look at Paige and no one else will do.

Paige has no time for a man, especially a man who most likely has a parade of women in and out of his bedroom. She's too busy trying to keep her house if take care of her father. Beaux is hard to a

Those of you who know me and my tastes know that normally a hot football player does nothing for me. Nothing personal to my football player fans. But I loved this one. I loved every single fucking thing about this book.

The cocky ego of Beaux as a star quarterback worked for me. The hard working ethic of Paige worked for me. The chemistry between the two definitely worked for me.

The minor angst, the twists involved wasn’t agonizing and sometimes I need to not be agoned. I made up th
If you are looking for a sports romance, then Filthy Player is a good option. There's nothing really special about it: girl meets boy and they fall in love. There was a bit of drama, because a stalker suddenly starts sending Beaux disturbing letters, but all of it was really predictable.

This is my first in this series and sports romance by Stacey Lynn but she's done multiple sub genres well and I like most of the ones I've read. She can write football well enough, the balance of sports to romance here was good. This team players are pretty cool, they know they're got what it takes to win. I'm very much interested in the other guys stories. I'm very much entertained with this one, not too heavy easy and fun read that held my interest all the way.

I received a copy of this book from the author for an honest review.

It's typical to think a professional star athlete would be arrogant and overly self-assured.  Beaux Hale isn't really an exception to this with his public face.  He's the quarterback who will lead his team to the Superbowl.  He takes a liking to a waitress at their local watering hole, and plans his playbook to get her to go out with him.

The one thing Beaux doesn't take into consideration is Paige turning him down flat.  Much le

I have a weakness for sports romance, particularly football romances. When the opportunity to read this book came up I jumped at the chance and I'm glad I did. This book was sweet, fun and once I started I didn't want to stop.

I respected Paige very much. I understood her pride, her desire to take care of her father on her own. She doesn't make time for herself so that makes dating hard. She has walls and watching Beaux deal with them was great. I understood

Beaux's team eats in the restaurant often and while there he meets Paige. He hits on her and comes off as a jerk at first. But he quickly redeems himself and they begin spending time together.

Beaux Hale! I wanted his book and I am so glad that I got to read it! Beaux is the starting quarterback for the Rough Riders and is considered the best quarterback in the NFL. Paige Halloway is working at her family garage, waitress and taking care of her father who had a stroke. Beaux can have any female that he wants and Paige wants no part of a relationship because she knows how it will end up because she has little to no free time.

This story about Paige and Beaux was Romantic and Enduring.
Paige left her life behind for the one man who was there for her, her entire life. Her FATHER. She is driven in her purpose and her only focus is taking care of her sick father and paying the bills.
I like how independent Paige is throughout most of the book. Not wanting to take from others because she did not want to feel obligated to them in the future. I am like that but at the same time we

If you want to read a simple love story with many steamy sex scenes, this is a book you should read. It’s the story of a football quarterback who falls for the waitress in a bar near the football stadium. If you want a meaty story where the characters have issues and need to overcome obstacles or overcome childhood traumas, this is not it. Both characters have fairly regular lives who are just attracted to each other and start a flirtation.  He is not affected by his fame and she is not impresse ...more

Being the quarterback for the Raleigh Rough Riders definitely comes with it's advantages, one of those being the long line of women always vying for his attention, but Beaux Hale is growing tired of that lifestyle... he wants something more. And he thinks that he might have found it, but the problem is that she doesn't seem to be aware that he exists, night after night he goes into the crappy little diner she works in and tries to catch her eye, but she just goes about her business and ignores h ...more

Beaux Hale was the starting quarterback for one of the NFL best teams. He wasn't what I expected which made me enjoy the story more. I thought he was going to be arrogant and cocky like how athletes are usually portrayed in stories but nope total opposite. He was confident but also the nicest and most caring guy. He's had his eyes on Paige for months but the beautiful waitress never knew. When the day finally c

The second in the Rough Riders series, this is very easily read as a standalone. Though having read the first book in the series gives you some extra background on Beaux and some on the secondary characters, the author does a great job of setting up those relationships for this book without information overload or making you feel like you're missing anything.
