About the book:
No strings. And no restraints…
Professional football player Bryan Townsend is sidelined for the next two weeks while he recovers from a knee injury. The upside? He'll get to attend his sister's wedding. The downside? He's not sure he'll have a spot on his team when he returns. So when he's confronted by a sexy blast from his past the night of the bachelor party, he sees an opportunity to seduce the very stunning maid of honor.
But Bryan had no clue Jill St. John was still a virgin. Or that she was merely looking to expand her sexual repertoire without having to trust anyone with her heart. But with every encounter, Jill can't help but fall for the man Bryan's become. The clock is running down. If he's to win it all, Bryan must make the biggest play of his career—choosing between his team…or the woman he's always wanted.
Two of my favorite books are No Flowers Required and No Romance Required, so I was really excited to read the newest book by Cari Quinn.
In No Promises Required, we meet Bryan, a professional football player who's recovering from an injury and visiting home for a few weeks for his sister's wedding. Jill, who's the best friend of Bryan's sister, has harbored a serious crush on Bryan since they were kids.
Thinking the tabloids and rumors about Bryan being a player are true, Jill decides she's going to convince him to have a wild two week fling with her. She is determined to shed her good girl image and gain some experience in the bedroom, and who better to help her with that than the sexy football god she's always crushed on?
Bryan has spent years keeping his distance from Jill in order to never disappoint and hurt her. Because of his own issues stemming from a difficult childhood, he has never believed he's good enough for someone like Jill. And now with his career on the line, he's trying to shed his bad boy image, including not getting involved with anyone. He doesn't need any distractions or complications, yet Jill is one distraction he can't seem to let go of.
A very sweet and sexy read! I enjoyed this friends to lovers story, especially the witty banter between Jill and Bryan. There is more depth to the story than just the sexy times, and it was easy to fall for this adorable couple.
