Blog Tour: Sleeping with the Enemy by Tracy Solheim

Members of the Vise Library were selected to participate in the blog tour for the book Sleeping with the Enemy.  We received a copy of Tracy Solheim's book for an honest review.

About the book:

The author of Risky Game returns with a football team owner who’s a real player, and the woman who’s ready to call him out on everything . . .

Dot-com millionaire Jay McManus is discovering that owning a pro football team like the Baltimore Blaze isn’t easy. An anonymous blogger is out to destroy his reputation, and now his team is being sued by its own cheerleaders. If Jay’s not careful, he could lose big—and not just financially.

Bridgett Janik’s brother may play for the Baltimore Blaze, but she’s not thrilled to be defending Jay McManus, the man who broke her heart. It’s bad enough she has to mingle with Jay during games, but working beside her former lover may be too much for her body—and her heart—to resist.

Jay’s determined not to let Bridgett slip away from him a second time. But, as the two follow the mysterious blogger’s trail, secrets—both past and present—are revealed, and Jay and Bridgett must decide if their relationship can be something more than just sleeping with the enemy.

Jay and Bridgett have a "little" bit of a past together.  Several years before they met in Italy and had quite the romance.  However, each one is hurt for different reasons over the ending of their relationship.  They each think that the other one ended it and are deeply hurt by those actions.  These two are thrown together again when Bridgett is hired to represent Jay in a sexual harassment case.  Bridgett refers to him as the "Antichrist" while Jay is determined to hold a grudge against him.  As they are around each other more and more, they realize that they still have a lot of chemistry together.  Jay and Bridgett just can't seem to put aside past hurts in order to move forward.  The story reveals a little of their past and how each party feels like they've been wronged.  Not only do they have to figure out their feelings for each other, but they also dig deeper into this sexual harassment case.  The case is not all it appears to be and the source of the claims are coming from Jay's past.  When the person and their actions are revealed, Jay and Bridgett learn that the betrayal they each feel may be the work of someone else.  This book had a lot more depth and substance the the characters and story.  I  loved that there was a little mystery involved about the case and the person behind.  The witty dialogue they have together was very entertaining too.  This book is in a series, but I didn't feel like I needed too much background information to read this as a standalone.  However, it would be good to read them just to revisit the characters that play minor roles in this book!
