I came across this as it was an Amazon recommendation based on other books I had read. I must say I was impressed! The cover, while sexy, didn't provide a good basis for how well this book was written. It was virtually free of all of those typos and grammatical errors that seem to plague other books of this nature. Yvonne is an educated black female who agrees to play the part of fiancé for her best friend, Robbie, who happens to be a gay soccer player living abroad. He is trying to get a multi-year contract from one of the teams, but knows that his chances could be affected if the media got hold of the fact that he was gay. The captain of the team, Paulo, can't stand Robbie as he feels that he is the reason behind his best friend's suicide. At the same time he is enamored of Yvonne almost to the point of obsession.
The characters are all well developed and Ms. Brown really takes the time to provide insight into their lives and how they feel. The details, from how Robbie picked out Yvonne's clothes and assisted her with make up, to how the other "trophy wives" acted all came together beautifully to create one heck of a good story. I loved the fact that the setting, story line, and plot were all fresh without any of the normal clichés usually associated with anything un-American. Paulo was Brazilian (with some Japanese thrown in) and he didn't call Yvonne the overused and offensive "Mami" at every turn. It seems to me that many authors just go with what they know off hand when dealing with anything out of the norm. Ms. Brown seemed to have personal knowledge (or did some darn good research) about football (aka soccer), living abroad, and the different European countries she magically transports you to.
And talk about steamy love scenes.

I wont go too much into this story because there are other reviews that do just that. This story could have been a home run but, the inconsistencies ruined it.

You mean to tell me that Yvonne and Robbie are such good friends she is willing to pose as his fiancee but Yvonne didn't feel comfortable enough to tell him about the love affair she was having with Paolo??? that didn't seem logical. In fact there were a lot of illogical things in this story. For example, Paolo's best friend committed suicide and Robbie was loosely connected with the death. This gave Paolo a reason to hate Robbie but it didn't explain why Robbie would have a issue with Yvonne taking Paolo as her lover. Also, the situation at the end of the story, (I won't spoil it by telling you) but it was so ill timed. It seemed like it was thrown in just to wrap up the story. I don't know how she thought she would get away with hiding it. It was just too over the top. This story was okay it started out with a nice premise but it was not well thought out which made it more like a base hit than a home run.

This was an enjoyable story. I liked Yvonne and Paolo...well he's hot, sometimes sweet and I had mixed feelings about him at times but in the end I liked him too.

Yvonne is a graduate student and has a great head for business. She's almost done with her degree when her best friend, Robbie, asks her to put her life on hold and help him out of a bind. Robbie is a professional football player (European football aka soccer) and gay. There has been some bad press around him that he is worried will cause him not to get a contract renewal and ruin his career. Robbie convinces Yvonne to pose as his fiancee until the end of the season in exchange for paying off her student loans. She agrees and joins him in Rome (where Robbie's team is located) to start her role as his fake fiancee.

Paolo had a tough life growing up and had to fight hard for everything he has. He excels in football and is one of the highest paid players in the European league. He's also very smart and has other business interests as well. Paolo is known as a playboy but his rep seems to be a bit blown out of proportions the paparazzi and wanna-be girlfriends. Paolo has some mis-placed anger toward Robbie because he replace a friend of Paolo's on the team (with some deeper stuff mixed in). It's not really Robbie's fault but Paolo wants to bring him down. Because of this, when Paolo meets Yvonne and finds out she's Robbie's fiancee, he decides (with some encouragement from a greedy jerk) to try to seduce her and make trouble for Robbie through her.

Yvonne and Robbie show up at their first game together and the press get to see them as a couple after the game.

I was reluctant to read to read this, as I had read another of the author's works and had not been impressed. Well, this book certainly proves that practice makes (nearly) perfect! Not only was there great plot and character development, but the writing was interesting and easily held my attention. The plot is unique, involving a gay soccer player who pays his best friend to pose as his fiancee. Of course, she is attracted to one of his teammates, which causes all kinds of trouble. And what delicious trouble it was. The sex scenes are super HOT! Quite a satisfying read that's worth every penny!
