To Win Her Smile (Players #5) by Mackenzie Crowne


Sometimes love and luck collide . . .

When sultry British Baroness Piper Darrow falls on desperate times, she needs a diversion—and cash. As a talented photographer, she jumps at the chance to travel to the U.S. for a Manhattan Marauders football event. But she gets more than she bargained for when buff quarterback Wyatt Hunter’s errant pass lands . . . in her face. And when it results in Wyatt’s comeback of a lifetime, the superstitious athlete is convinced Piper is his good luck charm . . .

With his sights on the Super Bowl, Wyatt will do anything necessary to keep Piper close. The fact that she’s a feast for the eyes is a bonus. And as they get closer, he discovers that beneath her proper English surface is a sweet, sexy seductress. Soon the notorious playboy finds himself genuinely smitten, and surprisingly open to love—until his powerful family uncovers something about Piper that threatens to shatter his trust. Now he’ll have to decide whether to team up with his fears, or his heart.

3.75 out of 5 stars

A baroness doing everything she can to keep her estate afloat meets a superstitious quarterback with a notorious reputation.

I found To Win Her Smile a bit cheesy, but overall it had its cute moments. One thing I didn't really care for was Wyatt constantly finding her accent sexy. It was repetitive, and the story was also predictable.

I definitely enjoyed the other books in the series more, but I'm glad I got a chance to read this.
