When I enter the Most Valuable Playboy charity auction, my goal is simple—be the player who goes for the most dough. But when trouble shows up at the auction, I need a whole new play. Enter Violet—she’s my best friend’s sister, and she’s my close friend, too. With a smile as sweet as cherry pie and a mind that runs quicker than the 40-yard dash, Violet saves the day with the highest bid. I don’t even give her a two-minute warning before I kiss her in front of the whole crowd and then announce that she’s my girlfriend.

I head straight for the bowling alley bar down the street and ask for a double. And in walks a deliciously charming local football hero - Harlan Taylor. Yes, I’ll take another drink in the form of a one-night stand with this hunk of a man. In the morning, he asks if I want to get together again. More rebound nookie? Yes please!
What I should do as the new quarterback in Los Angeles: win games. What I shouldn’t do: try to win over the sexy, sassy, fiery woman who works in the VP suite for the team. I don’t always follow the good guy rules, though, especially when I want to take her home. Again. Then up against the wall. Again. Then, out to breakfast the next morning.
