About Lexington and 42nd:
It was meant to be the job opportunity of a life time. It turned out to be so much more… At the age of twenty five, Emma Lexington takes off to New York on a once in a life time twelve-month job exchange with the New York Warriors. Determined to make the most of the opportunity, she prepares herself for life in the big apple—fast paced, exciting and a whole lot of fun. What she hasn’t prepare for though, is meeting him. The charming Will Jensen is in the prime of his playing career. As the star quarterback for the Warriors, his carefree, football centric life is thrown into disarray when he meets Emma, the beautiful, easy going Australian girl who joins the Warriors staff. Unwilling to throw her professional reputation away on a fling with the playboy quarterback, Emma turns down Will’s advances, even though she can’t deny the attraction she feels for him. Their pull toward one another grows, but it takes a near disaster for Emma to finally give Will a chance. Getting together might have been hard, but figuring out how to stay together will prove even more challenging as Emma must decide between conflicting loyalties. Lexington and 42nd is a fun, sexy romance, set in the exciting world of the NFL in the fabulous city of New York.
He opened my door before walking around the front of the car to his side, and in that time I mentally kicked myself for landing in yet another random situation with him. And more to the point, what was he doing? Was he really just a nice guy offering me a lift home or was there more to it? After his seemingly genuine apology in the stadium, I didn’t know what to think.
“How was training?”
I rolled my eyes. “Sorry, how was practice?”
Will chuckled. “It was good. Coach pushed us hard, but we needed it.” I could feel his eyes on me. “Were you watching?”
Grinning I said, “Yes, I thought you did some good quarterbacking.”
His laugh was a loud bark. “What was so impressive about my quarterbacking in your expert opinion?”
I pretended to consider this for a minute. “Well...you seemed to yell orders a lot, which I think is a good thing. And you can throw the ball so far.” I extended my arms as far as I could across the car.
“Hmmm, yelling and throwing. You’ve pretty much summed it up—the qualities of a good quarterback.”
I shrugged. “What can I say? I’m a fast learner.”
He looked over and winked at me. “I bet you are.”
“Will!” I slapped his arm. “And what exactly is that supposed to mean?”
His hands flew up in a gesture of innocence. “Nothing, I swear. I’m on my best behaviour.” He shook his head and murmured under his breath. “Such a dirty mind, Bambi.”
“Me with the dirty mind! You should talk—you’re like the king of innuendo.”
He shrugged, smiling at me as we stopped at a set of streetlights. “Probably.”
“More like definitely.”
“I’m only teasing. I’m not sure if you’ve noticed, but you’re easy to tease…and I like it.” He wrinkled his nose, dark eyes sparkling with humor.
Feeling like he needed a taste of his own medicine, I slipped my heels off and placed my feet on the dash of the car, letting my skirt slip up my legs. Will’s eyes grew to the size of saucers as they followed the path of my legs, tripping over my chest and landing on my mouth. “This is a really nice car.”
Will swallowed thickly. “Yeah, it’s nice.”
“It’s so spacious.” I twisted my body to peer into the back. Will was leaning toward me over the console, so close I could feel his breath on me.
“Um, I guess so.”
I turned my head so we were at eye level with one another, our faces only inches apart. “Have you ever, you know…had sex in here?” I bit my lip.
“Fuck, not yet I haven’t.”
A horn beeped, and he jumped before stepping on the accelerator.
“Ha!” I shoved his shoulder. “Careful Quarterback, two can play that game.”
With his eyes back on the road, he shook his head. “Jesus, Bambi, you don’t play fair.”
About Kim Carmody:
Kim Carmody lives in Australia with her husband, in a sunny little part of Melbourne that she never wants to leave. Except for frequent trips to New York, she is happy to leave at least once a year for those. She holds a Masters in Commerce Marketing and while she spent her younger years training to become a professional dancer, she somehow ended up working in the sports industry, where she met her now husband. Never a participant or spectator of sport growing up (she was too busy flitting around in a tutu), she has grown to appreciate, if not love many sports and eventually found herself writing about them too. As an avid book lover from the moment she was introduced to The Babysitters Club as a seven year-old, Kim never expected to be able to call herself an author, but is beyond excited that she now can. Lexington and 42nd is her first novel.
