A no-nonsense sports hero and a feisty female detective go head-to-head in this funny, fresh, seductive novel from the award winning NYT bestselling author known for her unforgettable characters, heartfelt emotion, and laugh out loud humor.

              He's the former quarterback of the Chicago Stars football team.

She's trying to make a success of her very own detective agency.

Her first job? Follow him.

Let's just say it's not going well.

Not well at all….

Piper Dove is a woman with a dream--to become the best detective in the city of Chicago. First job? Trail former Chicago Stars quarterback, Cooper Graham. The problem? Graham's spotted her, and he's not happy.

Which is why a great detective needs a first rate imagination. "The fact is . . . I'm your stalker. Not full-out barmy. Just . . . mildly unhinged."

Piper soon finds herself working for Graham himself, although not as the bodyguard he refuses to admit he so desperately needs. Instead, he's hired her to keep an eye on the employees at his exclusive new nightclub. But Coop's life might be in danger, and Piper's determined to protect him, whether he wants it or not. (Hint: Not!) If only she weren't also dealing with a bevy of Middle Eastern princesses, a Pakistani servant girl yearning for freedom, a teenager who just wants to fit in, and an elderly neighbor demanding that Piper find her very dead husband.

And then there's Cooper Graham,, a legendary sports hero who always gets what he wants--even if what he wants just might be an intrepid detective hell bent on proving she's as tough as he is.

From the bustling streets of Chicago to a windswept lighthouse on Lake Superior to the glistening waters of Biscayne Bay, two people who can't stand to lose will test themselves and each other to discover what matters most.

This book is wonderful!

A new SEP novel? Always exciting! I really loved the relationship between the hero and heroine in this one and it was as funny as ever. There's something about her newer novels that are missing something or are a little clumsy, compared to her older novels, but I still loved it!

I loved the characters in this book - a retired pro football player looking to move on to his next career and a fledging private investigator looking to establish her business. Lots of action and humor.

Nice continuation of Chicago Stars characters. Not too much mention of minor characters which can muddy up the story of the primary ones. As with Phillips other stories, great depth and growth of primary characters. Unusual, some violence and mystery.

I usually love this author, but at page 217 i put the book down. Her male character is so angry at the female character as she has her own mind, he puts her over her knee and spanks her! She yells at him to stop but he doesn't. I am sorry but this is not entertainment. Of course it ends in sex. Sorry, but nothing sexy in this.

I listened to this book on cd and I loved it so much I went back and listened to the last CD twice!!! This book is about a retired football player and a private eye. Coop now owns a bar and is trying to expand and Piper is a driven private eye hired to follow him. They are both too stubborn for their own good and PIper has an extra helping of doing what's right!! I am new to the Chicago Stars series and I'm going to go back and start the series from the beginning!! I can't wait!! Happy reading!!

After a looongggggg break we finally get another Chicago Stars book. And it was worth the wait! I love when female characters have a strong personality, are funny, and drive the menfolk crazy. This book delivered! The alpha male did not back down from our strong heroine which created a level playing field with lots of competition. LOVED every moment of reading, wish I could have savored it more but I devoured the pages in a short time.

At first I was reluctant to read this book because I've always felt I didn't like her stories. However, since I had no other reading material and there are glowing recommendations from many of the authors I DO enjoy, I gave it a try and I must say, I was pleasantly surprised.
It was a good story and I enjoyed the characters.
I intend to read more of this author's books.

p 114 As the two men watched her disappear, Heath shook his head. "She doesn't have a clue, does she." "Nope." Coop refused to say more.

p 185 Coop was the man she'd have wanted to be if she'd been male. Setting aside his money and fame, he was smart, he understood hard work, and, except for being stubborn and dictatorial, he was rock-bottom decent.
