4th & Girl (Mavericks Tackle Love) Kindle Edition
Totally normal thing that we’ve probably all experienced, huh? Facepalm.
Leo Landry is tall, strong, almost criminally handsome, the New York Mavericks’ latest first-round draft pick, and the very last person on Planet Earth I want to be inadvertently giving golden showers to.
Mind you, it was his urine, and no, there aren’t any “adult” themes in this job description.
Star Temps wheels and deals in odds-and-ends jobs, and they brought me on to play “medical assistant” for the day. Somehow, I’m leaving with a reputation I’ll never shake and fantasies about a football player I’ll never forget.
Thankfully, I’ll never see him again.
Or, at least, that’s what I thought.
Leo has other plans.
Plans that involve me.

The way Leo repeats the exact same toxic move that is supported by his friends and her friends really upsets me. The book makes it clear that he knows how stressed and scared Gemma is of starting a music career and how horrified she was when he signed her up to play at that club the first time. For him to do it a second time without talking to her screams I don’t care about your feelings when I think I “know” what’s best for you. It’s played off like she was being ridiculous and dramatic wrapped in her own fear and they never have a conversation in the book talking about it. Like has she now decided he knows her pretty well and even when she’s scared she trusts his judgement or is she still absolutely pissed he didn’t even talk to her before doing the same thing again and commuting her to something she didn’t sign up for. It’s not that hard to give someone a push by talking to them. That he gave a heartfelt apology and then did the exact same thing and sprung it on her AGAIN knowing she was absolutely horrified the last time he did it is TOXIC behavior that should not be glorified. It’s not healthy or helpful if you just toss someone into the deep end of their trauma with no support and are just like please swim. That was not supportive of him that was controlling of him.
Leo Landry was a first draft pick, by the New York Mavericks, to become one of the best cornerbacks in the league. On the day the team had to do their drug testing, Leo spots the gorgeous petite medical assistant, except she doesn’t act like she knows what she’s doing. It turns out, he was right since she spilled his sample all over herself. Now he kicks himself for not getting her name and phone number, plus it seems she was let go from her duties. A few weeks later and he can’t stop thinking about the blond with the killer body and beautiful blue eyes.
Gemma is now working for an elderly woman helping her with her home business. She handles the shipping and handling of the business, oh I forgot to tell you, she runs an online lingerie and sex toy business. Gemma freaks out at what she’s doing, but the pay is great! Now this is where it gets weird, Alma invites her nephew over for lunch one day, and who walks in but the gorgeous football player she sprayed with urine.
If this doesn’t make you go out and buy this book, I don’t know what will. I laughed so much reading this great story. There is nothing Max and Monroe can’t do!
Gemma was in her last year of college to get her degree in engineering when she dropped out. That was not her dream. That was her family's dream for her. Now for the past year she has been working temp jobs. No idea what to do or where she should be. Her passion is music, but there is no way she could make a life for herself with that.
On the first day of a new job, she meets Leo Landry. The young and hot new rookie playing for the NY Mavericks! These two have instant chemistry, but a little mishap ruins their first meet up. However, nothing can stop Leo's attraction or his recurring thoughts of her. He never even got her name.
Leo wants to know the girl he met briefly but can't seem to find her anywhere. Fate...yeah her....she always steps in when something is meant to be.
Leo and Gemma find their way back to one another in the most unusual of ways. They have an undeniable connection that is SUPER hot! Leo is a sweetheart. He knows what he wants and doesn't hold back with Gemma. However, she's got her own baggage and hang ups that hold her back. Leo just has to be strong enough to push her and she has to overcome her own fears. When it's meant to be....it will. You can't fight fate.
Another sexy, swoony read from this fantastic author duo! I just adored this series and all these hot and ripped football players! Go Mavericks!

As anyone who has read any of Max Monroe’s books, you know that you’re in for some good old fashioned romance with a lot of laughs and eye-roll moments. This story is no exception. And much to my own personal satisfaction, we get to see more of our favourite Maverick’s players again.
When we first met Leo Landry in Cam Mitchell’s story, he was the rookie… the cock-sure new signing that needed taking down a peg or two, but in all honesty I’ve found Leo to be gorgeous human being from the start. I was expecting him to be over confident and a little OTT but he was far from that. He’s sweet, caring and a real gentleman - especially when it comes to the woman who has stolen his heart from the moment they laid eyes on each other.
It safe to say that spilling someone’s urine sample all over them isn’t exactly the quickest and easiest way to win someone over, but in Gemma Holden’s case, it worked like a charm.
It takes them a while to find each other after that awkward first meeting, but it’s strange how the fates can sometimes work in your favour. Thanks to a sex toy selling great aunt and a team full of match-making Maverick’s, the two were destined to be united.
But this is a tale of a unimagined dreams and a talent that needs to be discovered. Sadly for Leo, pushing the love of his life to achieve her dreams and follow her heart almost leads to breaking his. Will he be able to show her what she needs to see? Will she put aside her fears of failure and reach for the stars that are so clearly within her grasp? Can she forgive Leo for his meddling?
In true Max Monroe style, I’m pretty sure any reader won’t be disappointed with the outcome of this story. Heartwarming and dreamily romantic, Leo’s love for his woman sees him putting his own heart at risk of being forever broken in his quest to break Gemma’s disbelief in her incredible talent.
Without giving too much away… the epilogue is just the cutest way to finish this uplifting and fabulously fun series. Yes, I’m going to miss reading about these guys but they’ll always have a place in my heart.
4th & Girl is the first book I’ve ever read from These authors and I’m so glad I took a chance and brought this. And if you haven’t already, sign up for their newsletter because that’s the whole reason I took a chance. Their newsletter is funny and full of random stuff. They’ll truly have you mesmerised.
The only thing in this book that confused me, was that Gemma sang at the Drag and Karaoke, but almost had a coronary or aneurism or something when she landed a bigger gig. Like, huh? What? But apart from that this books was seriously amazing, completely awesome and hella funny.
I LOVED Leo, I mean who wouldn’t? Pro football player, baby blue eyes.... delish! *hearty-eyed emoji*.
Gemma was so awkward and clumsy that I instantly loved her. I need a friend just like her because my life would be happy continuously.
The story itself was brilliant, the Drag was one of my favourite scenes and one I couldn’t stop laughing at. The ending was pretty comical too. Trust Gemma to ruin the moment.
Anyway, go to amazon or wherever, and one-click the heck out of this book. You won’t be disappointed!
Leo is my official new favourite Maverick and he is my number one favourite too. I have to say I wasn’t sure if I’d warm to him but he’s so cute with Gemma. They mesh well together and that is something I’ve really enjoyed reading.
I am also #TeamNonna. I want to keep her so much! She’s hilarious, cute and mischievous, what more can I actually ask for?
These two have so much chemistry, and I’ve really enjoyed just seeing how it went, there’s no over the top drama, for me it was a fun read mainly because Nonna. I am so excited to see what Max Monroe has in store for us all next! A book for Abby at some point please!!
