It all started with a dare.

Emily Flanagan has been living her dreams the last four years as a professional cheerleader for the Los Angeles Vipers, thousands of miles away from her tiny hometown of Summersweet Island, Virginia. She’s got the world at the tips of her pom-poms... until she tells her boss to shove those pom-poms where the sun doesn’t shine.

 After spending her last night in California with her biggest crush, Emily flies back home to Summersweet, resigned to her boring fate of running her parents’ business, never to be heard from again. Besides, there’s no use crying over a man who lives on the other side of the country, who she’ll never see again.

“Secret love affair for the new quarterback of the Virginia Beach Sharks, or a shocking tale of infidelity, leading all the way back to a birthday party Quinn Bagley threw at his previous home in Calabasas five months ago? New photos of the mystery redhead from the party surface, leaving fans to speculate all over social media, “Who is this woman who convinced Quinn Bagley to quit the Vipers and go to one of the worst teams in the league?”

Quinn Bagley is finally playing for a team that feels like a family, after years of playing with nothing but egos. Following an announcement that shocked the world
one hed been wrestling with for months, if not yearsit felt good to have that weight lifted off his shoulders. What he’s not happy about is that the woman who rocked his world the night she literally fell into his life turned out to be like every other crazy redhead he’s ever encountered, spreading lies all over social media and wanting to use him for something. He just wants to look her in the eyes and hear her admit it was all a game.

Except Emily Flanagan isn’t the hotheaded, rude woman he thought she was, out to screw him over. She’s sweet, sexy, and fun. Even if she does try to banish him from her island. She makes him feel normal, she makes him laugh, and she makes him want more.

He’s going to win her heart, even if he has to do it in overtime.

Let the real games begin, Miss Flanagan. I dare you.

Emily + Quinn.

Emily left Summersweet Island four years ago to fulfill her dream of becoming a Los Angeles Vipers Cheerleader. And now, when she's almost promoted to the team's boss - she gets herself fired.
That means back home to Virginia to run her parents' rental cabin business. Yawn.
And then, on her last night in California, she goes and spends a drunken night with her crush of many years: QB Quinn! ... thinking she will never see him again.
Yup. No. He's changing coasts too.



I loved this!

Emily is so sad to be back home again doing that boring job. She loves her island and her friends, but she wasn't made to rent out cabins!
And then Quinn comes back into the picture. Poor guy thought Emily sold all his secrets to the press. Which she didn't of course!
And Quinn. He's so sweet and funny and he tries so hard to make Emily fall for him. Just too cute.
Then we have our three ridiculous and adorable heroes from the last three books. LOL! They're so hilarious. I just adored them.

This is a really great group of island friends!

I really loved reading this!

And this wasn't the last we've heard of them - there'll be a book #5 😱

FIRST AND TENSION was such an adorable + hilarious football-cheerleader-island-rom-com . I loved it! Hurry to your nearest amazon for your own Quinn ... this one is MINE!

 Welcome back to Summersweet Island, VA.

If you haven't read the previous three books, you are in for a treat (and you really do need to go back and read them!)
Emily is back home on the island (not by choice) and hijinx with her island family (and the best circle of friends a girl can ever have).
Quinn is here to rip her a new one about things he thinks she did, but then the connection they had before sparks back to life, and ignite (even without the help of Tess and her lighter).
You can't help but want them to get together.  Heck, her friends have are already shipping them and Emily just needs to come to the party.
I love these people. They had me laughing, they had me rolling my eyes, had me wanting to be part of their group.
Will #Quemily get their HEA? Well, for that  you will need to read for yourself.

I am also happy that there will be more of the Summerset Island crew coming in the future, woot!
