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.

Jackson stole my heart!!!
This book, oh my goodness! I loved it so much! How can you not love a book that says things like “Good grief, she was pretty sure one of her ovaries just fainted.”?! There is such amazing dialog between the characters! You are dropped right in to the start and it is just a whirlwind all the way through! I love the snarky lines! I laughed so much that people at the doctor’s office probably thought I was a bit crazy but I don’t care! This story had me from the first page all the way through to the last one!
Jackson stole my heart and Leila was no typical woman. Their story is sweet, sexy, hot and full of laughter and pain and Violet Duke just kept throwing unexpected passes at the reader!!! I did not see how this book was going and she kept me guessing right up to the end! I could not put this book down and I would recommend it to anyone looking for something fresh and new!
Love is real
Jackson and Leila meet when she comes to work for the same station. He is immediately fascinated by her football knowledge. The heat goes both ways as she is just a quickly attracted to him also.
Leila wants to do well at this job. This means not getting involved with a co-worker. So it is very nice when she finds out Jackson has the same hands-off policy. Only they find themselves wanting to be more hands-on.
Such a sweet, yet very hot story where it grips the reader. I had a hard time putting it down just to eat! So glad this is a beginning of the Fourth Down series, since I cannot wait to see what is next.

Captivating From Page One!
I previously read this story as a short story, and wow…Violet Duke delivered with this extended version! Jackson’s Trust delivered on everything that a good novel should: a compelling story that engages the reader from the first page with just enough reality, romance, and steam to make you want to read the entire book in one sitting. Jackson and Leila are written with depth and enough antecdotes to make them relatable despite (SPOILER ALERT) both of them coming from wealthy, influential families. The twists and turns their relationship takes are unexpected but understandable and add to this story being a total page turner. I highly recommend this book and look forward to the next in the Fourth Down Series!
