Summary:

 

It was meant to be the job opportunity of a life time.

It turned out to be so much more…

At the age of twenty five, Emma Lexington takes off to New York on a once in a life time twelve-month job exchange with the New York Warriors. Determined to make the most of the opportunity, she prepares herself for life in the big apple—fast paced, exciting and a whole lot of fun. What she hasn’t prepared for though, is meeting him.

The charming Will Jensen is in the prime of his playing career. As the star quarterback for the Warriors, his carefree, football centric life is thrown into disarray when he meets Emma, the beautiful, easy going Australian girl who joins the Warriors staff.

Unwilling to throw her professional reputation away on a fling with the playboy quarterback, Emma turns down Will’s advances, even though she can’t deny the attraction she feels for him. Their pull toward one another grows, but it takes a near disaster for Emma to finally give Will a chance.

Getting together might have been hard, but figuring out how to stay together will prove even more challenging as Emma must decide between conflicting loyalties.

Lexington and 42nd is a fun, sexy romance, set in the exciting world of the NFL in the fabulous city of New York.

 My Thoughts:
This book was one I definitely breezed through no problem. It was for the most part light, and made me happy to read. The character development at the beginning drew me right in, as well as the interesting story line of a girl from Australia, with the concept of a sports romance, which I wanted to read for a while. There was quite a bit of romance, which isn’t a bad thing, however toward the middle to the end of the book, that’s really all it focused on, and I think I anticipated just something more happening. Towards the beginning the reader gets to experience New York and all of these co workers who are well rounded and realistic. I wish the story line could have been more broad in that perspective, but for a light, fluffy read it was quite enjoyable. There is some adult content in this book, and I kind of got a little tired of it, but again, overall it was a delightful read, and I did like the tension and love that built up between the characters. I would recommend this book.
