Griff Montgomery, Quarterback

by Jean Joachim


GENRE: Contemporary Romance



Two people, two tragedies, two deep, devastating secrets…. Griff Montgomery is the headline-making, heart-breaking star quarterback of the Kings – a 6’4”, 33 year old womanizer. Lauren Farraday is a beautiful young interior designer, bitterly scarred by divorce, whose life is falling apart. Though they violently oppose one another in court over her beloved pug (she thinks he’s arrogant and conceited, and he thinks she’s a bitch on wheels), something happens….

These are the bare bones of this sizzling romance, riddled with passion — the first in a brand new series that’ll tantalize football fans and have readers glued to every page and on the edge of their seats!

Griff looks like a super hero with his tousled, mahogany hair, dazzling smile, dark, sexy eyes, and a body that does something indescribable to a tight pair of jeans. Though Lauren’s sworn off men forever, one look sends shivers down her spine, making her feel lonelier than ever before. Her lustrous, long hair, sparkling green eyes, and nonstop curves make his fingers tingle at the thought of touching her. How do they deal with their cataclysmic attraction? Will they be able to drop their protective facades – his to camouflage his grief over his sister and her family, for whom he was a surrogate father, moving 3000 miles away…. And hers’ to shield her from the incalculable loss of her husband and hoped for child?

For Griff, the thought of falling in love is as foreign as toe shoes and a tutu. For Lauren, it’s like putting on cleats and a helmet and running 50 yards…. Can they, will they, risk it?












“This was a fantastic meal. Thank you,” Griff said, when they had finished.


He rose from the table and headed for the sink. “If you cook, you don’t clean up.” He picked up the sponge and turned on the water.


Lauren smiled and threw her hands up. “If you insist.”


When he was done, he went to his room. After a short shower and a quick shave to reduce his scruff to where he wanted it, he applied aftershave and dressed. He passed Lauren and Spike curled up together on the sofa as he headed out. She was reading a book and petting the dog. At the front door, he turned to wave at her.


“Have a great night,” he said.


“You, too.”


The crowd at The Savage Beast had already thickened. He could barely reach the bar. Carla shot him a lusty grin as she prepared a Savage Sunrise for him. People recognized him and scooted over to make room. Griff rested his elbows on the counter. He grinned at her.


“Your lucky night.”


“Yeah?” He raised his eyebrows. The low cut of her top, revealing plenty of cleavage, called to him. He stared, thinking her breasts looked a little too large then shook his head. They’re never too large.


“No date tonight?” She shot him a saucy smile.


He reached for her hand and kissed it. “Yeah, my lucky night.” His groin twitched, as desire flowed through his veins. He had four more drinks before the crowd left. Carla took him by the hand and led him upstairs. They undressed without ceremony. She pulled the covers down on the bed, slid in, and beckoned him.


He followed, taking her into his embrace. It wasn’t long before they were making love. Griff’s climax quickly followed hers. But shame filled him. He lowered his sweaty forehead to hers to whisper, “I’m sorry.”


She pushed on his chest, and he rolled off so she could light up a cigarette. After blowing out smoke, she folded her arms across her breasts and turned her head. With an angry glance at him, she spoke.


“Who’s Lauren?”
