Genre: Standalone Contemporary Romance
Release Date: October 25, 2021




It all started with a bet.


When my young son inherited half of his great grandfather’s historic inn, I decided to move us both to the place where I grew up.
Notice I said half of the Inn. The other half now belonged to Levi Miller, the famous quarterback who had other ideas about what we should do with the property.
We won’t mention that I accidentally injured him during our first meeting, causing him to get eight stitches.
You could say we got off on the wrong foot.
We bickered a lot as we both moved into the property while we figured things out.
He wanted to unload the rundown place which, admittedly, needed a lot of work.
I wanted to restore The Palm Inn to its original beauty and re-open it as a bed and breakfast.
We couldn’t agree on anything. So Levi made me a proposal. One he thought I would surely lose. If I could sell out the place by the time he had to leave for training at the end of summer, he would back off and let me run it.
But in the weeks that followed, we got more than we bargained for while we were living under the same roof.
Levi and I got closer, and before I knew it, my nightly fantasies about the brawny Adonis became a reality. Not to mention, he was so great with my son.
We were in over our heads in more ways than one.
Because not only was he the last man on Earth I should be falling for because of our deal, but Levi was also my ex’s older brother.
And now the inn was the least of my problems.

Well Played is the newest novel by one of my favorite writing duos, Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward. I have read all of their books together and fall hard for them all.
Presley wanted what was best for her son and that was moving back to her hometown. New York was fun while it lasted but growing up in a small town in South Carolina was where they belonged. Even if her ex and Alex’s father was staying behind. When her son inherited half of his great-grandfather’s inn, it was the sign she had been waiting for. She wanted to restore the older inn and bring it back to its glory as a Bed & Breakfast. A place she could run and someday hand over to her son. Half at least. The other half was given to his uncle Levi. A famous quarterback that didn’t even live in the same state. A man who wasn’t the best uncle to her son but maybe this summer would change that. Even if the man didn’t like her…
Levi wanted to sell the hot mess of an inn. Fast. He didn’t see any reason to fix it. He definitely didn’t want to spend the summer under the same roof as his brother’s ex. His nephew, of course he wanted to see him. He thought it would be easy to get Presley on the same page. Money was what she wanted, right? So he thought. That was when the bet was set. She had a few months to get it up and running or it would be sold to the highest bidder. Either way, he was out of there by training camp. What he didn’t expect was to like her. She was so much more than what her brother told him. She was a badass mother. A sweetheart who loved peach cobbler and a sexy vixen. He didn’t want to want her. He didn’t want to hurt his brother. He didn’t want to complicate her life. A summer fling would be all it could be, right?
Omg!! These two. What a roller coaster ride of laughter, sexy times, and crazy ups and downs. I felt for them all. I loved their banter, heat, and sweetness. I felt all of their emotions and connection. Even the one between Levi and Alex. I love when kids are not just in the shadows but involved. I was so invested in these characters and didn’t want to put the book down once I started.
I ♥️ Fern!
“Thanks, but I think I’m going to go out.” He walked over and leaned down to whisper in my ear. “I have a real hankering for peach cobbler.”
“You suck.”
“I do—and lick. And sometimes I do this thing where—”
“I’d love to know what you were really doing with that belt,” Fern quipped.
