USA TODAY BESTSELLER • Violet Duke kicks off her fun and sexy new Fourth Down series with a heartwarming friends-to-lovers romance between a no-strings-attached sports analyst and the hottest damn tomboy he’s ever met.
It’s no secret that sports analyst Jackson Gray doesn’t do relationships. What is a secret, however, is the reason why. Jackson’s life is . . . complicated. And it doesn’t help that his current hands-off “friendship” is with the cute-as-hell new sideline reporter he’s assigned to train. Turns out, not only is the woman damn sweet, she also knows as much about football as he does. Like it or not though, Jackson has to remind himself that sex is the only thing he has to offer . . . until now.
Leila Hart’s fast-growing friendship with Jackson is something she’d never risk, no matter how unbelievably seductive the reward. Becoming an NFL sportscaster has always been the goal, and thanks to Jackson’s fierce support and mentoring, it all finally seems within reach. Problem is, a girl can only take so much of that sexy-as-sin voice whispering dirty, filthy football stats in her ear before she loses all self-control. A workplace romance with Jackson is a disaster waiting to happen, especially for someone with big dreams . . . and secrets of her own.

Includes an excerpt from another Loveswept title.
This was my first book by this author and I have to say I'm totally hooked. Absolutely loved her writing style. The characters ( Jackson and Leila) were well developed as well as the storyline. Loved the supporting characters (Donavon and Bennet) and their witty banter. I couldn't put it down. I read all night until I finished. A wonderful read.
Oh Jackson and Leila where can I read more about you. I swooned and fell hard for these characters.
Leila Hart is a politician's daughter who wants nothing more than to be accepted by her parents and make her own path as a NFL newscaster. Jackson Gray wants nothing more than to stay out of the limelight. He's happy where he is but when things change he comes out as heir to a million dollar company. He doesn't want to deal with the corporate world and she doesn't want anything to do with the political world. Can these two get past the secrets? Can they form a lasting relationship?
Oh my goodness, I loved this book. The characters were great. The plot was amazing and I loved how it started with you thinking they were just coworkers and then throws in the secrets of their lives. The flow and pace were on par. The writing style was fabulous. I loved every second of this fabulous book.
Violet invites you into a world that is fun and unique. She pulls you into the story where you expect one thing and end up somewhere completely different. I felt like I was a part of this story and can't wait to see what the rest of this series is like. I will definitely be looking for more great reading material by Violet Duke because she is an amazing author.
Great Emotional Read!
Wow! Jackson's Trust is a sweet sexy romance. Jackson Gray works at DBC Sports Networks as an analyst. He is also a member of a rich family which is a secret he guards closely since he's afraid he won't be able to tell if someone likes him for himself or for his money. Leila Hart has a brain full of football stats and a lot of knowledge about it but because of her looks, is playing a dumb female so she can get a job with the network. Jackson is afraid to trust her since he has been burnt before but can't get her off his mind. Leila is interested in him but has secrets of his own.
Violet keeps you guessing. The characters are well fleshed out and complex. Their personalities shine through and the sizzle just bounces off the page. The plot flows quickly but with enough twists & turns to keep you entertained. I couldn't put the book down and even found myself laughing out loud at one point! Great book!
