THE ALL STAR ANTES UP by @NancyHerkness ~ Netgalley Review

“When three billionaires—a powerful CEO, a celebrity quarterback, and a bestselling novelist—find themselves drinking together one night, they realize they have much in common: modest backgrounds, dazzling wealth, and a lack of real love in their lives. Tired of being pursued for their money and power, the billionaires make a high-stakes wager. To win, they must find women who love them for the men they are, not their market portfolios. Follow three wealthy, jaded bachelors—and the strong, savvy women who just might change their lives—in my sophisticated and sexy Wager of Hearts series, set in the bright lights of New York City.”  – Nancy Herkness’s website

Synopsis from Amazon: 

“No strings, no rings.” That’s Luke Archer’s motto. As the champion quarterback for the New York Empire—not to mention a self-made The All Star Antes Upbillionaire—Luke has given up on serious relationships. Women only want him for one thing: the thrill of being with a superstar. And he can’t risk love distracting him from his next Super Bowl victory. But when his best friend announces he’s retiring from football to spend time with his wife and kids, Luke feels like he’s missing out on something much bigger than his career.

The assistant concierge in Luke’s luxury high-rise, Miranda Tate fled her family’s dairy farm to come to the bright lights of New York City. She works hard to move up and sends her spare earnings home to her brother. When she and Luke meet, there’s an instant attraction, but they’re in completely different leagues. Could Miranda be just the woman Luke needs to win the most important game of his life?

This was s sexy, sensual and sweet romance – with a lot of dirty talk.

“No strings, no rings.” has always been famous successfully quarterback Luke Archer’s motto. Not only is he extremely hot, he is charming and very rich. However, his desire to give up on relationships takes a detour when he meets Miranda Tate.

Miranda Tate, is a concierge host at one of the poshest apartment buildings. She is very successful at her job and the woman to call to get whatever that is needed in New York City. Relocated from a farm in upstate New York, she is used to getting her hands dirty with physical labor. So taking care of the patrons at the Pinnacle is a cake walk until she meets HIM ~ Luke Archer.

A secret injury brings him to Miranda asking for her help. That assistance blossoms into a friendship later as hot lovers tearing up the bedsheets and crawling the walls. He enjoys spending time with Miranda so much he wants her to wait for him after the football season ends. He believes he has to remain focus to secure another championship for him and his team.

I can almost hear him whispering “sugar” in my ear. He is a gentlemen and a sexy beast who takes control in the bedroom. Luke is the last person to realize he is totally in love with Miranda. He can’t psychologically handle that idea during football season so he hurts her and let her go! He is a total idiot. And within days he realizes what a colossal mistake he has made. The best part of the story takes place when he decides to go after Miranda and claim her as his own with the aid of his friends and colleagues.
