Melissa St. James is a gorgeous 31 yr. old hard working, successful assistant state attorney in Miami. She is dedicated to her career & wants to become the state attorney by the time she’s 35. She puts criminals behind bars & doesn’t have time for relationships, attachments, or much of a personal life.

Everything changes when she is sent to the police station because a superstar NFL football player is arrested. Her boss wants her to make an example of the star quarterback for the Miami Dolphins. Their golden boy Grayson Knight. With his fame & money he is considered untouchable. This high profile case could define her career, but Melissa questions if he’s innocent. Things don’t add up & she is seeing holes in his story.

As Melissa continues to question Grayson there is an undeniable attraction between them she keeps trying to ignore. He flirts & clearly is interested in her, but she knows he’s extremely off limits. She wants him, but can’t have him. It would be career suicide. Yet, as their chemistry ignites, & their connection grows, she can’t seem to stay away.

-“I’ve never wanted anyone the way I want you, Mel.”

-It feels so good and so right when I’m with you.

Suddenly this man is someone important to Mel & she finds herself wanting to defend him, & prove his innocence. Things heat up between this forbidden couple & it gets pretty delicious! Once they give in to their desires, they can’t get enough of one another. This was a hot, sexy short read. I really enjoyed this one!

Short but super sexy, Sacking The Quarterback delivers one hell of a good time. This is a sports theme romance, where two people from completely opposite worlds collide in one sensual tale that will tackle your senses, and leave you breathless.


Grayson Knight is the golden boy of football; the star quarterback for the Miami Dolphins. His whole life has been about football, working hard to earn his place in the NFL. Unfortunately for him, trouble comes knocking one night, and it might tarnish his clean reputation.

Melissa knows who Grayson Knight is, I mean; any woman on this planet knows that he is one of the hottest men in football. What she never expected was to find herself building a case against him, and since she is the assistant for the district’s attorney, she has to get to the bottom of the situation and find out how exactly this golden boy ended up in jail for drug possession.

Even though Melissa and Grayson start off the wrong foot, the sexual tension between them is through the roof. Melissa can tell that there’s something Grayson is not telling her about the case, and she really wants to help him, but he’s not making it easy on her. Not only is he withholding information, but he also keeps flirting heavily with her, and c’mon! there’s only so much a girl’s ovaries can take.

How long before Melissa caves into the temptation? Will she risk losing her career by getting involve with Grayson?

Read this sexy story and find out…

I really enjoyed the plot, the characters, and the writing style. A quick read, full of sexy times, that I’m sure anybody would enjoy.

*****FOUR STARS*****

Sacking The Quarterback was a super quick and steamy read. Samantha Towle is one of my “go to” authors and when I saw that she was writing a romance involving an NFL Quarterback, well I knew that I just had to get my hands on this one. The story is co-written with James Patterson and fans of Samantha will be able to distinguish between the writing styles. I didn’t fully start to enjoy this one until the latter half of the story.



Melissa St James is an up and coming Assistant State Attorney in Miami. She has just been assigned the biggest case of her career. NFL Quarterback, Grayson Knight has been arrested for possession of drugs. Her boss wants her to make sure to make an example out of Grayson and that he gets the most severe sentencing. When these two meet, the attraction is palpable and there’s something about Grayson’s behavior that has Mel questioning his guilt.


Mel is determined to get to the bottom of the story because there is no way her conscience will allow her to send an innocent man to prison. As Grayson and Mel begin to spend more time together their attraction grows deeper. I did find it to be a case of insta-love, but then again we are dealing with a pretty short novella!!


The steam is what made this an enjoyable read for me. If you’re a fan of Ms.Towle, then you know she can deliver on that front!!


Sacking The Quarterback is available now!!
