Ramon Castillo, world famous soccer player and international playboy has been brought low by a career-ending injury. After the humiliation of a shattered leg at the World Cup final, he has spent a year enduring surgeries and painful therapies, the last three months of which are at the Castillo resort in Las Vegas under the watchful eye of his cousin, Jackson Castillo and owner of the Castillo hotel chain. But Ramon’s lack of interest in soccer, women, or in anything besides the blackjack tables has Jackson worried.
Gillian Winter, catering and banquet manager for the MGM Grand Hotel is nurturing her own deep wounds. Her beloved husband has died unexpectedly, leaving her with a young son whose one dream is to meet his hero: Number 17 on the American National Soccer team, Ramon Castillo. When an apparent chance encounter in the lobby of the MGM reveals Ramon's presence in their midst, everyone's lives are changed forever.
Can Madame Eve work her magic and bring true healing to Ramon and Gillian? Or is it too late?
In typical Madame Eve fashion, Ramon and Gillian don't stand a chance of escaping the matchmaking skills of 1NightStand, the exclusive dating service whose long-term success rate belies the name. Ramon is a damaged playboy, an injured soccer player who may never be able to play the sport he loves again after a horrible accident during the World Cup game. Gillian is a broken woman, a widowed mother who gave up her game to start a family. Can these two soccer-loving wounded hearts heal each other's pain?
Ms. Crowe has written a sweet, romantic short story with a sexy hero, gorgeous heroine and chemistry between the two that is love at first sight. Caught Offside is a fun and easy read with steamy sex and a soccer theme.
