When a chance meeting with a tall, hot, and obviously wealthy stranger leads to a sexy hookup, can this Cinderella play to win, or will it all end when the clock runs out? I did not steal JJ Beckett’s wallet. Or his championship ring. In fact, seeing as I accidentally left my shoe behind, maybe I should be the one crying thief.

I did not steal JJ Beckett’s wallet. Or his championship ring. In fact, seeing as I accidentally left my shoe behind, maybe I should be the one crying thief. But after a one-night stand with the hottest stranger I’d ever seen? Well, that was the last thing I was yelling. Not that I had time to say much of anything – I was already late for work. The shoe seemed like a small price to pay for a night like that. The kind of night I could remember while I’m cleaning other people’s rooms; the kind of night a girl like me never dared to dream of. C'est la vie, right? Wrong. Because the shoe wasn’t the only accidental thing that happened the morning after. Turns out I may have grabbed his stuff too. Putting it back isn’t as easy as I’d hoped ... and as he says, no one plays the player. Getting caught leads to some X-rated tackles that make it all worth the risk. Now one of us has to make a big play and decide if this game of love has a final score…

This is the first book I have read in The Legends series but I had no trouble reading as a stand alone. Ms. McCarthy drew me into the story she wove about JJ and Mia from the first chapter.. Initially JJ came off as a bit of a jerk but he quickly grew on me. A one night stand leads to complications for both JJ and Mia when they meet again months later. He accuses her of being a thief and it is a battle of wills to see who will win this argument. The banter between them was witty and the attraction that grew between them was impossible to ignore.

    A sweet, swoony, sexy, hilarious romance I loved Mia and James together. This book is fun, of course, but expect to cry, swoon, and cheer along with your laughter. Mia works three jobs trying to support herself and pay her mothers medical bills. James is a wealthy professional football player. They run into each other at a bar where Mia has been stood up. Mia does not recognize him and James likes that she is just a regular person who likes him for himself. They have an awesome night together bu A sweet, swoony, sexy, hilarious romance I loved Mia and James together. This book is fun, of course, but expect to cry, swoon, and cheer along with your laughter. Mia works three jobs trying to support herself and pay her mothers medical bills. James is a wealthy professional football player. They run into each other at a bar where Mia has been stood up. Mia does not recognize him and James likes that she is just a regular person who likes him for himself. They have an awesome night together but Mia, waking up almost late for work and believing James is from out of town so it cannot be anything more, leaves the next morning before James wakes up. Unfortunately in her haste to leave she accidentally sweeps his wallet into her cavernous purse. Thus begins their journey to the HEA where he thinks she stole from him and she thinks he’s a yacht salesman. While James and Mia follow the inevitable path to being together, it is painfully hilarious but also beautiful to watch their growth and their missteps. Mia has more growing to do then James in order to be ready to embrace that she can have a relationship and trust that good things won’t always be taken away. The story has plenty of hilarity, steamy scenes, sweet moments, and strong friendships with just a small bit of angst. I am looking forward to the next book in the series.

    Fun quick read I like the way Erin McCarthy’s brain works. The dialogue is quick, witty and fun. In this story the challenges are mild and easily overcome. The editing is not good. There are a number of places where words are missing or misspelled, which always irritates me. But overall, I enjoyed this read, I have enjoyed this series and I am looking forward to Miles’ story (can I volunteer to proof read it prior to release?)

And she's taken more than his expectations of making it more than just a one night stand with her. Just as he's decided finding her is impossible, they run into each other once more. And this time around, JJ's determined to ensure he never loses sight of her again. Mia has held on to the memory of her one night with a gorgeous, kindhearted stranger. Her life is messy and chaotic, pretty much like her handbag, so she comforts herself with the thought that it wouldn't have lasted had they had more than one night, anyway. But when he turns up in her hotel, angry at her, but just as sexy as before, she realises that her heart is in trouble. But also, that, love might be worth it, after all. A little OCD and plenty sweet, JJ is a charming hero. Mia is hardworking, and looks out for others; I was happy that she understood that it was okay to let someone - JJ - look out for her, too. I recommend this read. It's light, with witty banter and steamy moments. It definitely made me smile. I voluntarily read & reviewed an ARC of this book.

    My favorite story of the series so far! I woke up at 3:30 this morning and read until work and then finished it on break. I couldn't stop reading James (JJ) & Mia's story! From the moment they met and until the last page, I was beyond captivated. James was supposed to meet a friend when Mia accidently ran into him. I loved going on their journey because it was oh so entertaining. Erin McCarthy delivered a great story full of humor and heart. I loved James & Mia.

    I was hooked from the blurb and Erin McCarthy did not disappoint. The set up for JJ and Mia's romance was different than anything I'd read before. It made it interesting to see how they figure things out as their relationship changes from one night stand to more when they meet again. This book is a fairly quick read, but the story and relationship development don't feel rushed. It is fun, entertaining, and probably my favorite book in the series so far!

    James and Mia James and Mia's first meeting was fun and pretty original. The events that followed were emotional as well as quirky at times. They were opposites in many ways but their differences provided a balance that worked. I enjoyed their snarky comments and highly recommend this book.

    When I read the second book in this series and we got a small sneak peek of this gorgeous book, I instantly wanted to read it. It made me so curious for it and when I found out I missed release day and the book had been out for a while, I dove in asap. This book is an easy-to-read, very funny, lighthearted, nicely balanced book. There's romance and there's frustration, but it's always passionate between the leading characters, sparks are flying hot and high.

    It was ok . Mia was very good hard working and definitely didn’t want to take advantage of anyone . He was glad Mia didn’t know his identity when they had a one night stand but he fell for her goodness right off . He was super rich and a neat freak -little too much so for me
