Sometimes the best defense is a good offense…

Aileen is a sports reporter trying to make a name for herself without relying on her looks, And what better way to do that than to break a scandal about one of the fastest rising stars on the Santa Fe Bobcats? Killian seems too good to be true, so she knows he must be hiding something…

It’s hard enough breaking into the NFL—even more so when you’re a single dad. Killian isn’t proud that he’s keeping his son a secret, but his ex has a reputation that could tarnish his squeaky clean image for good. So when Aileen starts sniffing around, Killian decides to distract her by any means necessary.

But Aileen is more than capable of giving as good as she gets…

Loving Him Off the Field is a fun and sexy sports romance. I loved it! It’s one of those feel good romances that deliver some laughs along with the romance. Great romance to curl up when your looking to destress, unwind and enjoy a good story. It was well written and had great characters. I really enjoyed the witty banter between the team and hope the rest of them get their own stories. The romance was slow building throughout the book. I loved Aileen, the driven reporter, and Killian, the football kicker, together. Overall great feel good sports romance and I highly recommend it. Jeanette Murray also has a great military romance series, The Semper Fi Series, that I recommend as well. She’s also coming out with a marine boxer romance in 2015 that I can’t wait to get my hands on. I have Jeanette Murray on my authors to watch list. I just love her writing style and characters.

If There’s One Thing He Hates, It’s a Secret…

Coming home after a rough deployment, Captain Dwayne Robertson wants some stability in his life, and finds it in the friendship he’s forged with Veronica Gibson while he was away. But her past is a well-guarded mystery, and Dwayne doesn’t know if he can deal with a woman who has something to hide…

And She’s Filled with Them…

Veronica Gibson doesn’t want anyone to know about her bizarre upbringing. She’s finally escaped her missionary parents and would be enjoying her independence if she didn’t feel so insecure about fitting in. She can easily envision a glorious future with Dwayne—but can she build a new life on a web of lies?


I loved The Officer and the Secret! It is the third book of the Semper Fi Series, but can be read as a stand alone. I really want to read the first two books in the series now so I can read how the other couples got together though. I loved Dwayne even though I wanted to smack him at times. He is a sexy marine home from deployment and suffering from PTSD. Veronica has been sheltered her whole life and is just coming out of shell. They have great chemistry together and Veronica really seems to be the person to help Dwayne with his PTSD. Their story is a steamy romance that held my interest from beginning to end and had me laughing and smiling. The Officer and the Secret has a great plot and characters! This is the first book I have read by Jeannette Murray and will not be the last. I recommend this book for romance lovers that love a military hero!
