Out of her League, The Beautiful Game 1
A big game needs big players.
Vidal Seguera, the fiery superstar turned coach of the Limehouse Legends, is the most famous name—and, through his multi-million-dollar modelling and sponsorship deals, face and body—in soccer, described as bigger than Beckham. Now the scandal-hit club is falling apart and, having failed in his bid to buy the Legends, Vidal faces the prospect of working with a new President.
Mel Brennan is young, and it’s widely accepted in the press that she slept her way to the top at Man’s World, the on-line pornography business where she was CEO, and that she knows nothing about running a soccer club. The newly appointed President of the Legends has her work cut out getting anyone, especially Vidal, to take her seriously. It’s a case of distrust at first sight.
As Mel struggles to turn around the club’s fortunes and fight the unseen forces working against her, she is also battling the intense attraction she feels toward Vidal. She has too many secrets to let a man she doesn’t trust get close. As for Vidal, the emotional damage he suffered in the past means he’ll never let anyone into his heart, especially not a gold-digger like Mel Brennan. By the time he begins to suspect Mel may not be all she seems, it may already be too late for both his heart and the club to recover.
