Hello! I'm Adora Smutz and I'm so lucky to be interviewing that fabulous football hunk, quarterback, Griff Montgomery, today. *Calls to Griff*, "Come, sit here, next to me. I don't bite --well, not until I know you better. Have a beer."
Griff: *walks slowly, keeping an eagle eye on Adora until he spots the beer. Settles in and pops the bottle top*. "So what do you want to know?"
Adora: *narrows her eyes*, "What did Jean tell you about this interview?"
Griff: "She told me I had to do it. It's in my contract. Said she's not going to let the publisher release Buddy's book unless I do this."
Adora: "What else?"
Griff: "She said not to get too close to you. But, hell, I'm over six feet and you're what? Five two?"
Adora: *murmurs* "Five feet two inches made for love."
Adora: "Jean told me you'd have your shirt off for the interview." *grabs buttons*, "Let's get it off, shall we?"
Griff: *fists his shirt* "No way! She told me that was just for a cover shot. I do interviews dressed."
Adora: "What about locker room interviews?"
Griff: *blushes* "That's different."
Adora: *grabbing his shirt again* "Let's pretend this is the locker room."
Griff: *slides down the couch, away from Adora* "I thought we were supposed to talk about the book?"
Adora: "We will. Aren't you shirtless in the book?" Griff: "Yeah. Sometimes. We're supposed to talk about the story. What's going on here? Where's Jean?" Adora: "She went out for tea. She left you in my hands. You're perfectly safe..."
Griff: "I doubt that. Get away from me."
Adora: "Okay, okay. You win. Tell me about the book."
Griff: "It's a really poignant story. Jean gave me that word. About two lonely people and a pug."
Thinking he's off guard, Adora lunges for Griff. He evades her and pops off the sofa. She's right behind him. He heads for a round table.
Griff: "You'll never catch me here."
Adora: "Oh yeah? You're not the first guy who thought that table would save him...and was wrong!"
Griff: "Jean is gonna have a meltdown if we don't have this interview."
Adora: "New rule. I interview all football players shirtless."
Griff: "You gonna take off your shirt?"
Adora: *throws him a lusty glance* "If you insist." She begins to unbutton her blouse.
Griff: *holds up hands* "No! No! Don't do that! Jean! Jean? Where the hell are you.
A sudden snarling sound comes from the door. A pug dashes in, looks around, bares his teeth and runs straight for Adora. She screams. Griff: "Spike! Spike, no!" Griff scoops up the snarling dog while Adora cowers behind the sofa.
Adora: "This is Adora Smuts concluding my interview of hunky Griff Montgomery, Quarterback."
Griff: "Aw, just read the book, will ya? Make Jean's day."Summary
He wanted a wife. She didn’t want to get married – ever. Not exactly a match made in heaven. Ten years ago, Griff Montgomery, star quarterback of the Kings and womanizer, became a stand-in father for his widowed sister’s kids. After they moved away, Griff wanted his own family. But where does a “player” go to find his ideal mate?
Having sworn off marriage forever, Lauren Farraday barely kept her life together after her divorce. With her career shaky and depression closing in, the last thing she needed was a courtroom battle with a sexy athlete.
Wary of Griff’s reputation with women, and hiding a secret, Lauren holds on to her heart. Can the quarterback handle the truth or will he walk away, like he has in the past?
