BACK IN THE GAME
Written by Meghan Quinn - Read by Virginia Rose and Joe Arden
A novella in the Dating by Numbers series
I don't know what love is anymore.
Well, that's not entirely true, but I'm going to tell you a little secret: I've lost the spark.
You know the kind of spark I'm talking about?
Where butterflies take flight in your stomach from two hands innocently colliding. Or catching your breath when you first meet someone attractive. Yeah, that spark.
Except I haven't felt that feeling in forever; there is nothing left inside of me.
Normally, this wouldn't be a problem - but I'm a writer on a serious deadline, and my editor is breathing down my neck for a romantic Nicholas Sparks-type love story. No pressure, right?
That's how I find myself flying across the country to crash a wedding in the name of research, dress and heels stuffed into my small suitcase.
It should be the easiest book research ever. Drinking some free champagne, basking in the love of two strangers, and tapping into my romantic side. That'll be a breeze. I'm a pro. I can handle this.
Until I mistakenly end up in the wrong hotel room, naked as the day I was born, with the sexiest human I have ever met staring me down, wondering what I'm doing taking a shower in his bathroom.
I don't think calling it "research" will get me out of this mess.
But it will make for one hell of a story.
"It had a good dose of smexy, some great single parent swooniness and whole bunch of flirty and laugh out loud bantering. It’s a fun, quick read with just the right amount of smexy, swoony mixed in to keep things interesting."

"Wonderful short read. I love sports romances and this book didn't diappoint. This book was fun, and quirky, just what you would expect from this author. The pacing was great, and I really enjoyed it."

"Back in the Game was absolutely AMAZING and I loved it with all of my heart! It was a sweet, sexy, funny, and highly entertaining standalone sports romance novella, and I absolutely adored everything about it from beginning to end."

"I love me a good single dad story, it’s one of my favorites to read. What a fun and cute novella. Calder in the beginning with his daughter Shea, priceless. I really loved the banter between Calder and Rachel. Their text messages to each other had me chuckling. Then we got of more Hayden! Whoo boy I can’t wait for his story!"
