And despite his better judgement, the more time he spends with this smart, artistic, incredible woman the more he wants her in his bed - and his future.Becks always had it bad for Jackson.

Because now that she's found Jackson again, she's not letting him go.Want more sexy romance? Don't miss the rest of the Play-By-Play series which began with The Perfect Play.
