Jackson's Trust

Review copy provided via NetGallery in exchange for an honest review


New York Times bestselling author Violet Duke kicks off her sizzling-hot new Fourth Down series with a friends-to-lovers romance between a no-strings-attached sports analyst and the hottest damn tomboy he's ever met.

It's no secret that sports analyst Jackson Gray doesn't do relationships. What is a secret, however, is the reason why. Jackson's life is . . . complicated. And it doesn't help that his current hands-off “friendship” is with the cute-as-hell new sideline reporter he's assigned to train. Turns out, not only is the woman damn sweet, she also knows as much about football as he does. Like it or not though, Jackson has to remind himself that sex is the only thing he has to offer . . . until now.

Leila Hart's fast-growing friendship with Jackson is something she'd never risk, no matter how unbelievably seductive the reward. Becoming an NFL sportscaster has always been the goal, and thanks to Jackson's fierce support and mentoring, it all finally seems within reach. Problem is, a girl can only take so much of that sexy-as-sin voice whispering dirty, filthy football stats in her ear before she loses all self-control. A workplace romance with Jackson is a disaster waiting to happen, especially for someone with big dreams . . . and secrets of her own.


This is my first look at a book written by Violet Duke. This was a fun read, as it had me laughing, crying, and getting mad. You connect with both Leila and Jackson. The story has a seamless flow, as well as capturing the emotions making us feel each one. From the start, you feel the pull between Leila and Jackson and are pulling for them to get their heads on correctly and see what use readers already see, which is that these two people belong together.
The plot line is a complex and highly developed; the character development is complete, and you don’t feel as if anything is left out. The dialogue is very realistic and is easily pictured in the mind as if you’re listening to it and not reading it.
For an ARC, you don’t find any grammatical errors, and can tell the editing team as well as the Author is through in catching the errors, which always make books harder to read.
