Bachelor – A Football Romance

Author:  Winter Renshaw

Publication Date:  June 6, 2016

Genre:  Contemporary Romance, Romantic Comedy, sports romance


Filthy mouth. Dirty mind. Messy past. I’m no saint, and I hear my reputation precedes me, but you can’t believe everything people say.

I’ve made a living playing by the rules only when the clock is ticking, the ball has been snapped, and I’m cleat-deep in AstroTurf. But I screwed up last year. I went too far with the girls and the partying and the benders, and I created a PR sh*t storm for my team in the process. As a result, the team owner sentenced me to live in some gated, Floridian retirement village until I can “calm down.”

Football is my life, and I love my team. They’re the only family I’ve got anymore, so I’ll do what I have to do to stay where I am.

The rules are clear: no girls, less booze, zero publicity stunts. If I lay low and repair my reputation, I won’t get cut. It’s that simple. Everything was going well. For the first time in my life, I was living by someone else’s rules . . .

. . . and then *she* showed up for the summer.

My next door neighbor’s great niece is visiting, and it doesn’t take long for me to see Delilah Rosewood is the perfect mix of sexy and smart. She makes me want to break all the rules and draw every penalty just to get a taste. She’s all curves and opinions and bee-stung lips, and I’m all trying-to-do-everything-I-can-to-convince-her-to-give-me-the-time-of-day.

But there’s one problem: she hates me with the passion of a thousand Florida suns.

AUTHOR’S NOTE: This is a full-length, standalone romance. You do not need to read ROYAL or BACHELOR first, but for a very *limited time* both books are included FREE with this e-book version of FILTHY! Also included is an ALL-NEW series epilogue!

My Review:



Filthy is not listed as book #3 in the Rixton Falls book, but that is what it is.  This is Delilah’s story and I loved it!

Delilah is an uptight, control freak, college student who is spending the summer in Florida with her Great Aunt.  Her Great Aunt happens to live next door to sexy, professional football player, Zane.  Zane is being kept on a tight leash by his team due to past behaviors.  He is stuck living in a gated retirement community and loves to mess with his neighbors.  Delilah’s first run-in with Zane doesn’t go the way either of them expected.

I loved Zane and Delilah.  Zane is unapologetic.  Delilah is so tightly-wound that when she finally breaks you will just want to cheer.  The story is kind of predictable.  There is not big aha moment.  However, the banter between Zane and Delilah is pretty funny and Aunt Rue pretty much steals every scene she’s in.  There are sexy times that are pretty hot but not overly descriptive.

Filthy is a fun, sexy read that will have you smiling and swooning until the very end.
