Book Blitz & Giveaway: The Total Knockout [Southern U O’Brien Brothers 04] by Cookie O’Gorman!


   Running my fingers along his chest, I felt him shiver. Dex released a breath that turned into a chuckle, then reached down to pick something white and blue off the floor. As he helped lower me from the dresser, I lifted a brow.
   "You sure you want me to wear that?" I asked.
   "Why not?" Dex gestured for me to hold out my arms, and I did. Pulling the material over my shoulders, he placed my arms into the holes then started doing up the buttons. "You're supposed to my girlfriend for the night."
   I gulped. "Fake girlfriend," I said. "All that stuff I said downstairs was pretend."
   "Yeah, I know," he said with a roll of his eyes. "I'm not an idiot, Hawthorne. And just so you know, I'm not going to doing anything stupid like fall in love with you."
   For some reason, that statement bothered me.
   It shouldn't have, but it did.
   "Well, I won't be falling for you either, O'Brien," I said.
   "Good to know. As fun as this was, I'm not looking for a relationship."
   "Me either. I'm glad we understand each other."
   "Me too."
   Dex took a step back and crossed his arms, grinning as he looked at his handiwork.
   "The guys are going to go crazy when they see you in my jersey," he said.
   Shaking my head, I grabbed his hand, led him out of the bedroom and to the stairs. The party was still in full swing as we descended. And Dex was right. We were getting a lot of attention.
   "You like stirring things up," I said. "Don't you, O'Brien?"
   "What's not to like?" he said then lowered his voice as we got to the bottom of the stairs. "But I also wanted to see you wearing my number."
   "And?" I asked.
   "Looks just as good as I knew it would."
   Dex's intense eyes held nothing but heat and yearning as he stared back at me. I knew I was looking at him the same way. Shoot, why did he have to say things like that? Add in the amazing kissing, and I felt more than a little unsteady.
   Luckily, someone interrupted us.
   I was just about to suggest we go back upstairs, so we could pretend some more.

Maisie Hawthorne doesn’t do boyfriends.

Or girlfriends. Or relationships. Burned in the past, the scrappy bartender knows better than to trust a pretty face. Dex O’Brien is gorgeous (with or without the scar). Pierced, tatted, annoyingly attractive. She knew he was trouble even before she saw him fight. Her mind told her to stay away—but her heart wouldn’t listen.

Dex O’Brien doesn’t do love.

Not the romantic kind anyway. Sure, he loves his family, would defend them with his dying breath. And yeah, he loves baseball and fighting too. But falling in love? No thanks. Too messy. Dex couldn’t care less, especially about the bookish bartender with the smart mouth and beautiful eyes.

She needs money to pay the bills. He needs a tutor to keep playing ball—even if he’ll never admit it.

When the Southern U Wolves recruit Maisie to tutor Dex, tempers flare and sparks fly.

This new adult sports romance features two scarred souls, one hot-and-hilarious case of enemies-to-lovers, and a sexy set of brothers guaranteed to make you swoon.

The #1 lesson they’ll both learn?

Love is the total knockout you never see coming.
