“She was my girl. My bombshell mystery package that only I had the pleasure of unwrapping. Mine to kiss. Mine to hold. Mine to taste.”

With the cutest, most awkward meet-cute in the history of all meet-cutes, the ladies of Max Monroe has teamed up once again to give us Leo and Gemma’s hilarious and charming happily ever after. 4th & Girl is book four in Max Monroe’s Mavericks Tackle Love series and it can absolutely be read as a standalone! But if you haven’t started this incredible series, y

Oh so much fun! Leo and Gemma are so cute together. Gemma is kinda stubborn but she’s just trying to figure out what to do with her life. Leo is new so he’s trying to find his place within the team. I think some of the best parts in the story were with his great aunt Alma. Oh my stars I hope I’m as cool as her when I’m 80. That lady pretty much stole the whole book for me. She’s a firecracker and made me giggle nonstop. My biggest draw to these authors is not only their storytelling but their ch ...more

Leo Landry is the New York Maverick’s latest rookie and still proving himself to his new team. When Leo is doing a routine drug test, he encounters a beautiful blonde haired, blue eyed beauty and he’s dying to know who she is. But before he gets the chance to work his charm, she spills his urine sample and he leaves without getting her name. And when he returns to redo his test, his mystery girl is nowhere to be found.

4.5 Stars

The smile on my face has been glued to my face since I started reading this book. I can't get enough of this duo, they never disappoint. Time and time again they deliver and once again this book was no exception.

Leo. First round draft pick and the newest New York Maverick's cornerback. He had me feeling all sorts of ways. He was so charismatic and sweet and caring and such a great guy. I loved, loved, loved him.

4th & Girl was the PERFECT ending to the Mavericks Tackle Love series, and my FAVORITE Max Monroe book to date! It was a fun, hilarious, and entertaining standalone romantic comedy, and I absolutely loved it with all of my heart and soul. You can never, EVER go wrong with a Max Monroe book, and 4th & Girl was a prime example of their excellence!

The storyline was PHENOMENAL. I never completely know what to expect from Max Monroe, but I always know I'll be laughing out loud and fully e

Quite a tame book for Max Monroe. Not too much drama or over the top scenes. Couldn't believe it was the last book in the series. Was really hoping Teeny got his own book. All in all, it was an enjoyable, quick read.

Oh my, I had a serious case of the swoons here. Leo, Leo, Leo. What am I going to do with you?

Before I go any further, let me just put it out there, that I voluntarily read an ARC of this book, in exchange for an honest review. So this book...gah, I laughed. Boy, did I laugh. I laughed until I cried at some parts. Max Monroe, the powerhouse duo that they are, they have it on lock. The perfectly timed zing of a rom-com.

Have you read any of Max Monroe's books? Because you should. Any and all of them. Their brand of humor is completely hilarious and I love all the internal conversations the characters have with themselves. I didn't just laugh, I literally had to put my kindle away because I was cracking up so hard.

But back to the book, these two ladies can write a swoony male lead. EVERYONE SINGLE ONE OF THEM. Leo, rookie NFL star who is also going to get his masters for life after the NFL, who meets Gemma on a

This was such a fun story! I really enjoyed both lead characters, Leo Landry (the rookie Maverick we glimpsed at the end of the Trick Play) and our heroine Gemma who was figuring out what to do with her life through a series of temp jobs. A definite highlight was the eccentric old lady Alma and her sass (plus hilarious online shop she runs). I don’t want to spoil anything, but let’s just say, she’s not a shy, naive old lady. Also Gemma’s best friend Abby, who is so bizarre and flits in and out ( ...more

I just love Max Monroe’s books and this one did not disappoint!!! Gemma is trying to find herself and has dropped out of her senior year of engineering school much to her family’s disappointment.

She takes a job with a temp agency and is filling in as a Med tech. Her first duty is to assist the Mavericks football team with their urine samples. She meets the gorgeous Leo Landry when she fumbles his specimen and it spills all over her.

You don't have to be a sports enthusiast to fall in love with a good book. 4th & Girl is a story of hard earned rewards and heartbreaking risks that centers around a love of football and an eclipse of the heart. Monroe breathes life into characters that are captivating, aggravating and at times down right infuriating, but no less hard to resist. Gemma and Leo score a touchdown in my book. ...more
4.5 stars!!
From zero to one hundred in less than a second, this adorable fucking creature had not only stolen my attention, but with sniper-like precision appeared to be going straight for my heart as well.

Leo Landry is the “newest first-round draft picks for the New York Mavericks.” As long as he keeps up his record, he has it made but his focus is on something other than football. He can’t stop thinking about the mystery girl he met when he first joined the team, and it’s driving him crazy

Although I (still) haven’t read the first book in the Mavericks Tackle Love series, I feel pretty confident in saying that 4th & Girl is, and will always be, my favorite of the 4.
Leo and Gemma are both so adorable! Not every book do you find yourself loving both main characters equally- usually my heart leans a little more towards one or the other (and more often than not it’s the hero), but in this case, I have to say I adored both Gemma and Leo equally- their funny and awkward first mee

*Warning: This book will make your cheeks hurt from the constant smiling as you read.

4th & Girl is the final book in the Mavericks Tackle Love series. Each book is interconnected but can be read as stand-alones as each focuses on different players on the New York Mavericks football team.
This is the story of Leo and Gemma. I absolutely adored these two. They both were adorably dorky but incredibly sweet on one another from the get-go.
I loved seeing Gemma as someone who was a bit uncoordinated (no

I’m admittedly sad this is the last book in this series by Max and Monroe, but talk about going out on top. I’ve not been shy about my love for all their words and it seems with each new book I get a favorite. 4th and Girl is no different. I’m IN LOVE with Leo and Gemma!!

ARC kindly received in exchange for an honest review.

As usual with Max Monroe, this was a fun and fast read. Leo and Gemma's tale begins in the most awkward of ways, and things only get funnier from there. Once they finally reconnect after their weird initial meeting, and they get past some awkward nerves on their first date, these two really open up to each other and are a really sweet couple.

Finally Leo's story and it's absolutely perfect! I thought that I already had a favorite in this series, but Leo Landry has stolen my book heart!

Max Monroe continue to write wonderful stories that always deliver the feels. Their attention to detail as well as the crazy plots and locations add to the awesomeness that is the writing of Max Monroe.

I think this might be the cutest book I've ever read. It was funny, sweet, filled with most embarrassing things happening known to a person. I loved the chemistry between Gemma and Leo. I loved him for wanting the best for her even when she was to scared to do anything about it.

I loved seeing the "old" characters. And than Nonnie and BFF Abby were hilarious side characters.

It would seem Max Monroe can't write anything that isn't simple amazing. Another great read and another amazing couple to

The Mavericks Tackle Love have been a favorite series by far from Max Monroe. I remember when these duo debut and love their unique writing and quirkiness. There is no stopping them for sure with 4th & Girl. They had me falling all over football star Leo and our wonderful heroine Gemma.

4th and Girl had me smiling from ear to ear and snort giggling. This story hit all the marks from feeling butterflies to feeling the heat level! The characters were all a hoot! I could not get enough of 4th & Gir
So funny was the heroine, Gemma, in this book! She was wacky, and I loved her! And, the hero, Leo, was incredibly sexy and sweet. Their love story was awesome! And, the supporting characters were marvelous too! Looking forward to reading more from these authors...

I received a free copy through Social Butterfly PR in exchange for an honest and unbiased review/opinion.

3.5 stars — This one had so many good moments—moments where I laughed and moments where I swooned—but if I’m being honest, I struggled to maintain interest in the story as well. I enjoyed it, but I just wasn’t captured I guess. I wasn’t sucked into Leo and Gemma’s romance, and I just didn’t feel any strong chemistry. Basically, it was good, it just wasn

5 star review 4th & Girl (Mavericks #4) by Max Monroe

Leo Landry is the starting cornerback for the New York Mavericks and although I have no idea what that means it sounds interesting.

From the first page to the last I was invested in Leo and Gemma Holden‘s story. Full of humour, laugh out loud, (who am I kidding - snort worthy moments) and incredibly sexy this book will draw you in and you won’t want to put it down.

This book is laugh out loud funny from Leo and Gemmas very first meeting when Gemma manages to spill Leos specimen cup of pee all over both she and him.

This book made me laugh out loud a few times and it felt good !!
Their first meeting is awkward crazy and a bit disgusting but so funny !
Alma also was a hoot, i'm a fan !
Their love story was sweet and easy, we had to wait a little while before they actually see each other again but then it's just an evidence.
The reasons of the traditional break up irked me a bit though it didn't felt right. The end was rushed imo because the story takes time to introduce everything then we finish with

Wow, I never thought anyone would surpass Kline as my favourite Max Monroe man but I think Leo is right up there with him. He's a good guy with a heart of gold, a hard worker with a sensible head on his shoulders; he oozes charm and kindness. His determination along with his lack of ego ensure he makes friends and settles into the Mavericks quickly despite his young age.

This is the final book in the Mavericks Tackle Love series, which makes me sad because I have LOVED this series. This book was so much fun to read. This book is one of those books that takes you on a wonderful ride you enjoy reading the entire time. I never wanted it to end!

While I've loved all the heroes in this series, I think Leo Landry is the swooniest one in this book. His hilarious "meet cute" with the heroine Gemma Holden starts us on this entertaining ride filled with many laugh-out-loud
