Haven Delilah and Josh Summers are fierce rivals representing the best of the best in sports. Each come at the field from different angles, Josh can pick apart a contract better than anyone else, working to get his clients the best deals possible. Haven understands what athletes need, having been an Olympic champion herself. Competing for the same clients has always worked this pair up, though they find themselves heating it up between the sheets as well.

As they work to sign the same athletes, they have to decide how far they are willing to go to win, and just what is it to win in this game?

I loved the competitive edge between these two. Though the competition is also what keeps their rivalry brewing, it is also what pulls them together. They have worked together for some time, and their history is part of what really drives them to compete. Each character is strong in their own right. Haven’s determination to succeed in a male dominated field means she doesn’t take any advancement for granted and works twice as hard to get it. Josh has his own moral compass for working with clients that causes some friction as well. He knows he won’t like every client, but when their personalities don’t mesh he has a hard time following through.

This is a steamy, rivals to lovers storyline that moves at a great pace. I loved watching their differing ways of wooing the client and could see the client choosing either as a result. Josh’s penchant for side bets causes several humorous situations as he has to pay up on lost bets. The group of people surrounding these two add a lot of interest to the story -- athletes, fellow agents, and some familiar characters as well.
