My bio might speak for itself, but I still have everything to prove. 
Everything to gain. 
Everything to lose. 
On the field, and off. 

I’m here for a reason, and Nate Richardson isn’t one of them… except, he won’t let me relegate him to a non-factor. Even knowing what’s at stake, he won’t let me pass him off. 

So I’ll adapt. 
Open myself up. 
Dominate my position. 
Defend my right to be here. 

Who says a woman can’t have everything? 
Or, better yet… who says a woman can’t be a King?

4 out of 5 stars
I never go wrong reading a Christina C. Jones novel, and as a mood reader that says a lot. It doesn’t matter what mood I’m in, Christina always does me right with a cast of characters I hardly ever forget. 

Sloane and Nate are legit black love goals. A lot of people idolize the relationships out here in the real world, and their relationships are usually social media pretty—but that’s usually it—at least the ones trying so hard to convince us of otherwise. 

This fictional relationship is what these relationships out here aspire to be. Open, communicative, understanding of the other's shortcomings and just bomb, like give me more.

I loved me some Sloane. Strong, smart, business-oriented, knew football--knew her stuff, she was black girl magic personified--and these are the types of stories I love to see. I love seeing black greatness at the helm of businesses in fiction. We don't see it often enough. 

Nate was no slouch. He ran an important sector of his father's business--a liaison of sorts, ensuring the comfortability and respectability of the players. His role was as essential to the Kings' team as was Sloane's. 

I appreciated that the author didn't allow the story to be completely drowned in romance--and having the characters be solely caught up in the other. There was a nice distinction between their careers and their budding romance. This is one of this author's strong suits. It's not all lovey-dovey, it's real life. 

The supporting cast was a treat as always--giving the story that extra umph.

It was an all-around great read, with a solid easy-to-follow plot, engaging characters, subtle plot twists--and a nicely wrapped up HEA. I expected nothing different from this author. She never disappoints.

Get into this series and get into this book. 

Make sure to check out the other books in the series. This book can be read as a standalone--but make sure to read book two first--there will be spoilers for that book if you choose to read out of order.


  1. It sounds like a really sweet romance! I'm happy to hear this series is such a hit for you. I'm planning on getting KU soon and it's on there, so I'll add this to my list!

  2. Love authors that are so dependable, they really are the best!
