Review: Jackson’s Trust by Violet Duke

Publication Date: March 8, 2016 

Series: Fourth Down #1

Rating: 4 Stars


Official Blurb: 
New York Times bestselling author Violet Duke kicks off her fun and sexy new Fourth Down series with a heartwarming friends-to-lovers romance between a no-strings-attached sports analyst and the hottest damn tomboy he’s ever met.

It’s no secret that sports analyst Jackson Gray doesn’t do relationships. What is a secret, however, is the reason why. Jackson’s life is . . . complicated. And it doesn’t help that his current hands-off “friendship” is with the cute-as-hell new sideline reporter he’s assigned to train. Turns out, not only is the woman damn sweet, she also knows as much about football as he does. Like it or not though, Jackson has to remind himself that sex is the only thing he has to offer . . . until now.

Leila Hart’s fast-growing friendship with Jackson is something she’d never risk, no matter how unbelievably seductive the reward. Becoming an NFL sportscaster has always been the goal, and thanks to Jackson’s fierce support and mentoring, it all finally seems within reach. Problem is, a girl can only take so much of that sexy-as-sin voice whispering dirty, filthy football stats in her ear before she loses all self-control. A workplace romance with Jackson is a disaster waiting to happen, especially for someone with big dreams . . . and secrets of her own.

Review: I love friends turned to lover’s books and I also recommend this book for all the football lovers’ cause it’s packed from start to finish. Jackson and Leila are the perfect friends and have such a wonderful connection. Both of them love football and they also have formed a very strong bond, but both are hiding secrets that could eventually turn the other away, and neither is willing to lose that friendship… until they are.

Leila has worked so hard to land her dream job. She knows football forwards and backwards. Now that she has her dream job, her career is the most important thing that is until she meets Jackson. Jackson is a total sweetheart. He would literally do anything for anyone. When Jackson meets Leila he knows she’s different, but Jackson knows he can’t offer her more so why ruin a perfect friendship.

Jackson and Leila both struggle with their feelings for each other. They make the perfect friends, but neither can see they would also make the perfect lovers. Jackson is hiding secrets that could make Leila look at him completely different, but Leila also has a few secrets of her own that could change their relationship as well. I really enjoyed this book and I look forward to reading more from this author.
