When May Mayson signed up with a popular dating app, she never thought she would get catfished. After being stood up for a date, she finds out that the man she’d been talking to for weeks was lying about who he is.
After that horrible experience, she changes her number and deletes the app… only to have fate shove Aiden Bender right into her path.
The famous ex-soccer player whose photo was used to bait her on the dating app is the last person she expects to come face-to-face with in real life. Now, suddenly, he’s everywhere she is.
With his soccer career over after an injury, Aiden is sure his shot at happiness is lost. Then he meets May, a woman he can’t seem to get enough of. Now, all he has to do is convince her he’s not playing a game—while juggling his father’s construction company, blocking the flow of women his mother keeps sending his way, and avoiding getting run over, and shot at by whoever is out to get him.
There’s a game being played, and neither May nor Aiden understand the rules.

May had a bad experience with dating online. When the guy who was used to catfish her barged in her life, that thing this family had experienced more than once, the BOOM, happened!
When the gorgeous soccer player, Aiden met the lovely and sweet librarian, he could get her out of his mind. Not wanting to give a chance again to dating but May kept meeting him everywhere and he was totally upfront about his intentions.
I appreciated seeing their relationship develop over time, especially with insta sweet romance. May was adorable and always being true to herself, a reserved woman who loves to read and to be immersed into another world. All the swoons to Aiden, caring, protective and intense. A man who had such a different relationship with his family than May. He stood firm against them.
Of course when a Mayson falls in love danger is not far away! This story had a great mix of romance with some twists and turns. The suspense added into the story made it captivating, about what would come next, not overshadowing the romance part.
Another great installment to the series! I enjoyed seeing the uncles back in their kids’ stories as well. It has always the ARR’s magic touch but this book feels different from the others from the series. Fast paced but somehow slower. Steamy but sweeter. I’ve read it quickly and enjoyed it tons! Next book, please!
