New Jersey Hurricanes striker Logan Hart lives for the grind of training, the adrenaline of competition, and all the perks of the road—until his ex hands him a baby and tells Logan to raise her on his own. He’s eager to pass this bundle of joy into more capable hands and get back to his hard-playing, hard-partying ways. But when a beautiful, blond drill sergeant of a nanny turns Logan’s life upside down, he sets a new goal: winning her heart.
Isabella Bennett takes pride in teaching the rich and famous how to become loving families. Her no-nonsense style is just what Logan and his crying, copper-haired cutie need. So why can’t she get the image of Logan’s tanned, muscular body out of her head? Isabella’s here to whip a new father into shape, not fall for a sexy ladies’ man. But their chemistry is too tantalizing to ignore, much like the temptation to trust someone with her deepest secrets—and embrace a loving family all her own.

I adored the Bad Boys of Baseball series by Ms Rose, and I feel that I am going to adore this spinoff series, Hard to Play, just as much.
Hard to Hold is a sweet, sexy contemporary sports romance - You know what they say, those who can't play read about it!
I love that the series is about football (soccer) players rather than the baseball/NFL series I read so much of - mostly because this is something I can understand!!
I loved that the twist in the tale - a surprise baby! - came at the beginning of the book not at the end.
Logan Hart has it all. Successful, sexy - and now a single dad. Isabella is the hot nanny that housewives all over would worry about - not that she is that kind of woman.
With all that heat in the kitchen, somethings has gotta give.
"Logan sounds like he might be easy to catch, but hard to hold."
I loved that we got glimpses of some characters from the Bad Boys series, and am looking forward to more of the Hurricanes boys.
Can't wait to see what Ms Rose brings us next.
