THE PLAYER NEXT DOOR is a Kathy Lyon’s contemporary romance. It’ll melt your heart and knock your socks off at the same time.
NBA star Mike Giamaria won’t risk his career by playing with love. Ever. But when his cute, quirky, brainiac of a new neighbor falls off her death trap of a roof into his arms, Mike knows he’s caught heap of trouble…
Trouble sums up Tori’s life. Despite her academic success, no one believes she can take care of herself—not her family, not her ex-boyfriend. She’s determined to live her life on her own terms, and if that includes a hot summer fling with the super-sexy athlete next door, so much the better.
But when Tori’s around, Mike can’t keep his mind on basketball. He wants…more. And to his horror, not just more time on the court. When training starts, it’s game over—ithas to be—unless Tori can convince Mike that love doesn’t belong on the sidelines.
