Pass Interference (Connecticut Kings Book 6) by Christina C. Jones
My bio might speak for itself, but I still have everything to prove.
Everything to gain.
Everything to lose.
On the field, and off.
I’m here for a reason, and Nate Richardson isn’t one of them… except, he won’t let me relegate him to a non-factor. Even knowing what’s at stake, he won’t let me pass him off.
So I’ll adapt.
Open myself up.
Dominate my position.
Defend my right to be here.
Who says a woman can’t have everything?
Or, better yet… who says a woman can’t be a King?
