A "Battle of the Sexes" Story!
Denise has wanted her own professional football team since she was six years old. Now, she’s finally got it, but it comes with one problem: recovering alcoholic and notorious lecher Levi “So Fly” Ballom. As a record-setting tight end, his numbers on the field are fantastic, but it’s what’s going on off the field that has Denise worried. She can’t seem to get the Nordic god out of her mind, and her desire could put the future of her brand new franchise at risk.
Levi promised his agent no women for the first year of his recovery, and he was really trying to keep that promise until in swayed his new team’s manager, Denise. All he can think about is tying her up and taking her hard, and he can’t keep his mind on the game. He only sees one way out of this predicament -- do what his fantasies tell him -- but the promise he made to his agent stands in the way.Publisher's Note: This book contains explicit sexual content, graphic language, and situations that some readers may find objectionable: BDSM theme and elements.
Necessary Roughness by G. G. Royale put me up front and center into the lives of Denise and Levi. Denise surprised me with her fortitude and determinate to make a business for herself without fully depending on family nepotism. She handled herself with class both personally and professionally. When Levi came into the situation, she logically evaluated and made a decision to live her life on her terms.
Levi, with his past had an uphill battle. I didn’t care much for his over intrusive agent and hoped he’d drop him like a hot potato. When it came to Denise I saw a difference in him and that difference was selfless, instead of just giving into his desires, he thought about the outcomes that could happen both positive and negative. Their chance attraction exploded into a profound relationship of giving, receiving and accepting. I enjoyed reading their story and was glad they found the dynamic they needed in their relationship.
