From the New York Times bestselling author of Tapping the Billionaire comes a hilarious and sexy standalone about fate, chance, and one heck of an epically awkward meet-cute.
4th & Girl, an all-new standalone romantic comedy in the Mavericks Tackle Love series from Max Monroe, is available now!
I’m Leo Landry, one of the best shutdown cornerbacks in the nation, and the New York Mavericks’ first round draft pick.
If James Bond spent his days running drills and his nights shutting out quarterbacks, he’d dream about being me. But professional football is on a whole other level from college, and as the new guy, I’ve got everything to prove.
All I’ve got to do is focus, right?
Too bad life’s got other plans.
Blond hair, long lashes, and criminal blue eyes, there’s a pint-sized bombshell that I can’t stop thinking about.
I don’t even know her name, but she’s completely screwing up my game plan.
It’s too late to turn back now though. I have my eye on the prize, and I won’t settle for anything less.
4th down and only one goal in my sights—this pretty little mystery girl.
Good thing I’m at my best when the pressure’s on.

In my opinion, in football, there isn’t a more badass position than shutdown cornerback.
What makes my position so badass? Well, I have to be agile and quick and have a natural instinct for the game. My footwork has to be on point, and my speed has to be unmatched. I have to cover, read, adjust, and break on the ball. This position, my position, is one of the biggest anchors of pass defense plays.
What does all of that football lingo mean?
It means I’m vital.
It means I’m the guy who will stop a quarterback’s touchdown pass.
I’m the man who won’t let the best wide receivers in the league get their greedy hands on the ball.
Last year, my college record was nearly unheard of. I held opposing QBs to a 47.9 rating when they tried to throw the ball to the man I was covering.
Basically, I was the badass in one of the toughest positions in the league.
And now, as one of the newest first-round draft picks for the New York Mavericks, I’m the guy with everything to prove.
I can either be the big hero, or I can be the guy who loses the fucking game.
My reputation is on the line, my nearly flawless career in college taunting me in the background to live up to it, and if there’s one thing I need to do, it’s focus.
But life’s got other plans.
I should have my mind on my money—and my money on my mind—but the only thing I can seem to think of these days is the mystery girl I met at one of the team’s very first group activities.
Criminally blue eyes.
She’s petite and awkward, and she’s completely fucking up the plan.
But it’s too late to second-guess.
And it’s sure as fuck too late to go back.
Once my mind is fixated on something, there’s no stopping me.
I have my eye on the bombshell prize, and I won’t settle for anything less than victory.
Good thing I’m at my best when the pressure’s on.

Now it’s time for the rookie to meet his match. Leo Landy who was confident athlete who got hit by love, just like that. It wouldn’t have been fun if the authors didn’t throw a few obstacles in his way.
But I have to say that Max Monroe know how to write some hilarious meet cute scene, I laughed so hard. I almost didn’t know if I felt sorry for the guy or more embarrassed for the girl. But with a memorable moment like this, they had to be together. Damn I was already rooting for Leo before it even started.
Add in the mix a sassy great-aunt, some colorful teammates who loved to tease him no matter what, in his quest to find this mysterious woman who, in spite of their terribly and awful first encounter, immediately brought under her spell.
Gemma Holden could turn any situation into something freaking weird, and make some first memorable impression. She was a bit awkward, still trying to find her way in the world. She has also a crazy best friend who was utterly hilarious. She had some quirks, sweet with an engaging personality. A bit stubborn when it came to chase her dream.
Leo Landry was just too charming for his own good. Used to get what he wanted, meeting Gemma was the challenge of his life, falling for a woman he has just met, so crazy, right? He was down to earth, loyal and passionate about his career. And the way he cared about his great-aunt… swoon.
I had such a great time reading about Gemma and Leo, falling in love, challenging the other, and trying to push each other to follow their dreams. It was hilarious, fun, so swoon-worthy and hot. I’m a bit sad to leave this universe, to see some of the Mavericks players to be tackled by love. Just loved it!
