About this ebook

The New York Times bestselling author of Big Girl Panties is back with a funny, sweet, and sizzling novel about love, redemption, and second chances.

Heartthrob star quarterback Tyson Palmer has it all: a million-dollar arm, a winning season and the promise of a Superbowl ring. But more importantly, football’s biggest star is the ultimate comeback kid. After an addiction to painkillers nearly derailed his career, Tyson got sober and went from zero to hero in the eyes of the public.

But one person remains unconvinced: Dani Carr, a sports commentator with high ratings and following of her own.

Dani can’t forgive Tyson’s transgressions or forget a single passionate night with him back in college. To make things worse, Tyson doesn’t realize that the bombshell with huge ratings is the cute co-ed whose heart he once broke.

But can a sports journalist trying to claw her way to the top and a quarterback who knows all about rock bottom make it to the Super Bowl without destroying each other? And what will happen when Tyson—riding high now that he’s revived his career—realizes he needs to make an even more important comeback with Dani? Can he use his million-dollar moves to get past her defenses—or will she sideline him for good?

Stephanie Evanovich is a full-fledged Jersey girl from Asbury Park and the New York Times bestselling author of Big Girl Panties and The Sweet Spot.

The Total Package is a stand alone novel by Stephanie Evanovich. This is a funny, romantic second chance love story that can easily be read in one sitting. Tyson Palmer always dreamed of becoming a star football player and living his life in the limelight. What he didn't count on was the life turing him into a drug addict and alcoholic. Soon he finds his life on a downhill sprial, losing his contract with his team and unemployed. Luckily he found a team willing to take a chance on him and to help him get clean. Dani was Tyson's tutor in college and had secretly been in love with him. After Tyson abondons here after a steamy night together she decides to rebuild herself and focuses on a career in sports broadcastings. When an offer brings her face to face with Tyson years later he doesn't even recognize Dani. She is no longer the girl with just a pretty smile but a drop dead gorgeous woman who changed her looks and her name. These two have their ups and downs along the way but when secrets are revealed it will teast their binds as they head towards their HEA. I received an eARC compliments of the publisher in exchange for my honest review and opinion. All ratings and opinions stated are my own.
