Teams can be weird about stuff. But Graham can play along. After all, it’s all about forward progress.
In football, getting the ball down the field and scoring is goal number one. Life isn’t all that much different. That’s why Graham is hoping to do some scoring of his own off the field. Especially when he finds out the pretend girlfriend the team has picked out for him, Eden Vetterly, is beyond hot.
But it’s not all about sex.
Graham really likes Eden.
And she likes him too—a lot.
Too bad the team just changed all the rules.
Forward Progress is the first book in the new Men of Fall series, where football meets romance.
“I’ve read a lot of fake girlfriend/boyfriend romances, but Forward Progress stood out amongst them all to me.” – Cranky – The Book Curmudgeon
“This was a great start to the series and I cannot wait to see what S.R.Grey has in store for the Men of Fall.” – Erin Lewis
“Sweetness overload with some wonderful swoon and drama to keep you on your toes come together in this sexy football romance!” – Red Hatter Book Blog
“You’re fucking crazy, Jock,” I sneer.
“It wasn’t my idea, Graham,” he replies, unfazed by my outburst as he sits quietly on the sofa. “I told you the added stipulation in the new contract the Comets are offering was completely new to me too.”
“It’s fucking loco is what it is,” I grumble.
It’s true. This latest development in contract negotiations is truly nuts. They want me to pretend to have a fake girlfriend.
Are they off their rockers?
“How’s this even supposed to work?” I ask.
“We’re hammering out the details.”
“Great. Do I at least get to meet this mystery woman before I sign?”
“No. There’s no time for that. You will meet her, though, before the season begins.”
“Whatever,” I huff. “I can’t believe I’m supposed to pretend to be dating a girl I’ve never even seen. To top it off, I get to meet her just once, then I’m expected to act as if we’re in a serious relationship.”
“Pretty much,” Jock confirms.
This is bad, but there’s something more I’m struggling with—I’m supposed to also fucking move in with this pretend girlfriend.
Could it get any worse?
