(Bad Boy Billionaire Series Spin-Off!)

4.75 Stars

From the New York Times & USA Today bestselling author of TAPPING THE BILLIONAIRE comes a hilarious and sexy standalone about fate, chance, and one heck of an epically awkward meet-cute.

I’m Leo Landry, one of the best shutdown cornerbacks in the nation, and the New York Mavericks’ first round draft pick.

If James Bond spent his days running drills and his nights shutting out quarterbacks, he’d dream about being me. But professional football is on a whole other level from college, and as the new guy, I’ve got everything to prove.

No problem.
All I’ve got to do is focus, right?
Too bad life’s got other plans.

Blond hair, long lashes, and criminal blue eyes, there’s a pint-sized bombshell that I can’t stop thinking about.

I don’t even know her name, but she’s completely screwing up my game plan.

It’s too late to turn back now though. I have my eye on the prize, and I won’t settle for anything less.

4th down and only one goal in my sights
this pretty little mystery girl.

Good thing I’m at my best when the pressure’s on.

Finally book #4!
Leo's story.
Leo is a brand new professional football player and he's a bit scared ... will he'll make it in the big league? He was a college superstar, but the NFL is something entirely different.
And instead of concentrating only on football and his very first season.... he can't stop thinking about the beautiful girl he met when he had to go to the team's clinic to get his urine tested. The meeting of football player and medical assistant and pee did not go as it was supposed to go, but still, Leo can't stop thinking about her. He wants to see her again - but he has no idea who she is!

Gemma just dropped out of college because she realized that she didn't want to take over the family's engineering company. She wants to make a living being a singer-songerwriter. But that's just a stupid dream she's too scared to dream. That's why she's taking temp job after temp job. And on one of those jobs she met Leo.

Will they ever find each other again????
I'm pretty sure Gemma's new hilarious temp job brings them closer than they might think ... ☺



I loved Gemma and Leo and his Nonna! I totally saw her as Frankie from the Netflix show Frankie & Grace - or is it the other way around? Grace & Frankie? No idea - hilarious show though!

Leo and Gemma meet in the most adorable way. HILARIOUS!!!!!
And then it takes them a while to find each other again. And then of course we need some time to fall for each other while trying be the best first-year football player ever and for Gemma to get over her fear of being a professional musician!
Not gonna be easy!
But we LOVE every single second watching our two darlings fight for their happily ever after!
We also loved the other players' cameos!!!

The book was really funny, adorable, very sexy, sweet, a bit frustrating. Gemma is not easily convinced to give music a real shot! But I really loved reading it. I loved that we don't have that stupid misunderstanding or mistake moment with a groupie or something like that. It was an extremely sweet New Adult romance. I loved it!

4th & GIRL was an amazingly sweet & funny Romance! Hurry to your nearest amazon for your own Leo - this one is MINE!!!

I can't wait to see what MM will have for us next!

ARC received for an honest review

I was almost peeing myself with laughter with our lovelies meet cute in 4th and Girl (you will understand why when you have read this book).

After the dark read I had just finished, this light, fun and adorable story was just what I needed.

Max Monroe have not disappointed me yet with their stories, and Leo and Gemma's story was all kinds of cute and adorable and funny.

I liked that Leo wasn't all about the football, loved that he had his head on straight and was thinking about the "what ifs" of his career and was also doing something about it.

Gemma - I felt for her as she was kind of floundering in life, however I got frustrated with her as I wanted her to push herself and not worry about what her family would think.  I was all "girl, you say you are an adult and can make your own decisions, but you aren't"

Also, I want to be Alma when I grow up - don't want to spoil anything but lord that woman is funny!

I loved that this was drama free - no OTT, stupid actions or miscommunications. Our lovelies are adults and acted like it.

I didn't want the Mavericks series to come to an end, but now that leaves more time for Max and Monroe to write us new guys to fall in love with.


In my opinion, in football, there isn’t a more badass position than shutdown cornerback.
What makes my position so badass? Well, I have to be agile and quick and have a natural instinct for the game. My footwork has to be on point, and my speed has to be unmatched. I have to cover, read, adjust, and break on the ball. This position, my position, is one of the biggest anchors of pass defense plays.
What does all of that football lingo mean?
It means I’m vital.
It means I’m the guy who will stop a quarterback’s touchdown pass.
I’m the man who won’t let the best wide receivers in the league get their greedy hands on the ball.
Last year, my college record was nearly unheard of. I held opposing QBs to a 47.9 rating when they tried to throw the ball to the man I was covering.
Basically, I was the badass in one of the toughest positions in the league.
And now, as one of the newest first-round draft picks for the New York Mavericks, I’m the guy with everything to prove.
I can either be the big hero, or I can be the guy who loses the fucking game.
My reputation is on the line, my nearly flawless career in college taunting me in the background to live up to it, and if there’s one thing I need to do, it’s focus.
But life’s got other plans.
I should have my mind on my money—and my money on my mind—but the only thing I can seem to think of these days is the mystery girl I met at one of the team’s very first group activities.
Blond hair.
Long lashes.
Criminally blue eyes.
She’s petite and awkward, and she’s completely fucking up the plan.
But it’s too late to second-guess.
And it’s sure as fuck too late to go back.
Once my mind is fixated on something, there’s no stopping me.
I have my eye on the bombshell prize, and I won’t settle for anything less than victory.
Good thing I’m at my best when the pressure’s on.
