From the USA Today Bestselling Authors, A.M. Hargrove and Terri E. Laine comes a new standalone sexy sports romance, Sidelined – A Wilde Players Dirty Romance.


I hate him… I love him… He destroyed me… and now He needs me.

Fletcher Wilde, a gorgeous quarterback in the NFL, is the man I should have married. He’s the one that walked away, choosing football over me. He shouldn’t be back, especially not looking that good. And not sitting in my waiting room chair with a bum leg and confident cocky grin that sets my insides on fire.

It’s impossible to forget how he rocked my world both in and out of the bedroom. Keeping things professional won’t be easy, especially given our history. My mission, however, is getting him back on the field—the place he loved more than me, while not losing myself in him all over again.


Cassidy Miller is the only physical therapist in town. And after a potential career ending injury, she’s my ticket back on the field or my NFL career is over. Unfortunately, she’s the same Cassidy who ripped my heart to shreds when I thought we were a team.

Sexy and intelligent, she’s the last person I thought I’d see again. As it turns out, she looks better than ever, making me want that smart mouth of hers doing things to me that would drive a sane man crazy.

Lucky for me, my determination is legendary. Winning is in my blood, which makes me number one on the field. Being a single-minded man, my focus is to get her back and this time for good.

*Don’t go looking for a lot of football in this book, although there will be several touchdowns. This quick, sexy, second chance love story will ignite your e-reader. Be prepared to sweat a little when you read this hot, fast and frivolous erotic love story!

**Story will end at fifty percent because we’ve added sneak peeks of our latest novels for your reading pleasure.

I have come to love stories written by Terri E. Laine & A.M. Hargrove, so it was a no brainer for me to pick Sidelined! I enjoyed getting to know Cassidy and Fletcher, as their old feelings redeveloped after being apart for seven years. Sidelined was a quick, sizzling read with a touch of suspense that I devoured quickly.

The story begins with Fletcher being in an accident, which eventually leads him into Cassidy's office, so she can help him rehabilitate his injuries. I could see there were old feelings between them that bordered on a love/hate relationship. There's no denying the chemistry that still remains between them but there were a lot of issues they needed to work through as well.

Cassidy had been through a lot since Fletcher left, even now she was dealing with her cheating ex-husband. She deserved some happiness after going through something so difficult, and Fletcher seemed to be the right person to make her happy once again. I loved her determination, as she was working hard to set up her practice and she had the will power to succeed.

Fletcher was determined to get back to the NFL, but being back in his hometown and spending time with Cassidy forced him to realise what he was missing and that he needed to re-evaluate his life goals. I could see the change in this broody, hot headed man the more time he spent with Cassidy.

Sidelined was a very enjoyable second chance romance. I loved the chemistry between Cassidy and Fletcher, and how connected they were over such a short time of being together once again. Terri E. Laine & A.M. Hargrove have once again delivered a pleasant and sexy read, and added a little twist to keep me on edge.  

Fletcher... he has a way with words!

“Jesus, Cass, you …” I have to swallow because I’m afraid I’ll drool if I don’t. “You are so beautiful.”

“Are you sure you don’t want to eat your dinner?” she asks.
“Oh, I’m going to eat all right. It’s just not going to be chicken wings and French fries tonight.”

A.M. Hargrove
One day, on her way home from work as a sales manager A. M. Hargrove realized her life was on fast forward and if she didn’t do something soon, it would be too late to write that work of fiction she had been dreaming of her whole life. So she rolled down the passenger window of her fabulous (not) company car and tossed out her leather briefcase. Luckily, the pedestrian in the direct line of fire was a dodge ball pro and had über quick reflexes enabling him to avoid getting bashed in the head. Feeling a tad guilty about the near miss, A. M. made a speedy turn down a deserted side street before tossing her crummy, outdated piece-of-you-know-what laptop out the window. She breathed a liberating sigh of relief, picked up her cell phone, called her boss, and quit her job. Grinning, she made another call to her hubs and told him of her new adventure (after making sure his heart was beating properly again).

So began A. M. Hargrove’s career as a Naughty and Nice Romance Author.

Her books include Adult, New Adult and Young Adult Romances, including, The Guardians of Vesturon Series (Survival, Resurrection, Determinant, reEmergent, and the novella Beginnings); Dark Waltz and Death Waltz (The Praestani Novels); The Edge Series (Edge of Disaster, Shattered Edge, and Kissing Fire); The Tragic Series (Tragically Flawed and Tragic Desires); Exquisite Betrayal; Dirty Nights: The Novel; and The Hart Brothers Novels (Freeing Her, Freeing Him, and Kestrel).

Wife and mother of three, I’ve always been an avid reader. In my early years, my best friend and I would tell each other stories over the phone when we were bored. We called them our “soap operas” and generally revolved around whatever boy we liked at the time.

Over five years ago, I got this crazy idea to write a novel and try to publish it. And the rest is history. This journey has been a blessing, and a dream realized. I look forward to many more memories to come.
