    Julie Brannagh's sparkling and romantic Love and Football series continues! 
    For Amy Hamilton, only three Fs matter: Family, Football, and Flowers. It might be nice to find someone to share Forever with, too, but right now she's working double overtime while she gets her flower shop off the ground. The last thing she needs or wants is a distraction … or help, for that matter. Especially in the form of gorgeous and aggravatingly arrogant ex-NFL star Matt Stephens. 
    Matt lives by a playbook—his playbook. He never thought his toughest opponent would come in the form of a stunning florist with a stubborn streak to match his own. Since meeting her in the bar after her sister's wedding, he's known there's something between them. After she refuses—again and again—to go out with him, Matt will do anything to win her heart … But will Amy, who has everything to lose, let the clock run out on the one-yard line?

    I was happy in my small town. In my life as a single, thirty-two year old woman. I had a good job, wonderful friends, my independence. I also hadn't got laid in three years. Hadn't been on a date in two. Had stopped counting calories and wearing makeup... a while ago. Then Brett Jacobs waltzed in. Caressed my thigh, dug rough fingers into my hair, lowered his soft mouth to my skin, took sexual control of my mind and stirred it all around with what he packed in his pants. He flipped my quiet life upside down and crawled into a place in my heart I thought was dead. The issue is his secret. The issue is her. The issue is that I don't even know she exists, and he thinks she's dead. The issue is that shit is about to hit the fan and I can't hold on to him tight enough. Praise for TIGHT: "MESMERIZING … CAPTIVATING… Never have I read such a thrilling novel. Alessandra Torre steps away from her usual writing style in this read, but never loses the core facets of her genius story telling. This novel will gut you then repair you. What you think you know … you DON’T." —Summer's Book Blog "Brilliantly executed, this will have you on the edge of your seat." —The Romance Cover "The characters are amazingly addictive… with panty melting, page sizzling sex scenes. A sexy, raw, and shocking love story." —Seraphim Reviews "TIGHT is unlike anything Ms. Torre has written in the past… yet in true Alessandra Torre style, TIGHT is chock full of erotic, sensual, steamy awesomeness." —The Reading Escapade Book Blog "I loved the way this book made me struggle with myself, that it challenged me. I did not expect this story. I thought I knew what I was getting. I had no idea. Strap yourself in for one helluva ride. A fantastically told romance, with a sensual edge and one mind blowing storyline." —Michelle, Goodreads "I am completely blown away by this beautiful, unique, heart wrenching story. How I am ever going to be able to put this into words is beyond me, but again Alessandra Torre has blown me away. I absolute LOVE this story." —Reading is Sexy Book Blog "HOLY HELL! I absolutely loved this book! LOVED IT!!!" —FMA Book Reviews
