The Nighthawk Series by Author Lisa Lang Blakeney scorches the literary scene with its gripping tales of hot, sexy NFL football players who play to win. In this series, DAK book number eight takes me on a journey of passion, redemption, and love.

Dak is a defensive football player known for his rough and aggressive playing style. Yet, behind the tough exterior lies a loving single father, deeply devoted to his beautiful baby girl, who means the world to him. However, Dak’s promising football career is at risk of spiraling down due to a devastating accident on the field, leaving him grappling with the consequences of his actions.

To salvage Dak’s career and address the emotional fallout, the league intervenes by seeking a therapist for him. Enter Katrina, a fascinating yet troubled therapist assigned to guide Dak through the healing process. Despite her expertise, Katrina is far from the picture of professionalism, consumed by personal demons and finding solace in alcohol to numb her pain. The reasons behind her chaotic state are unveiled as the story unfolds, adding depth to her character.

Dak’s initial meeting with Katrina in her office is nothing short of awkward and uncomfortable. Her approach to therapy leaves Dak questioning her competence, and their interactions are riddled with tension and uncertainty. However, as they spend more time together, they begin to see each other in a different light, leading to an unexpected bond that transcends the boundaries of a traditional therapist-client relationship.

Amidst their therapy sessions, Dak and Katrina forge a unique connection, discovering shared interests and personal struggles. Their growing closeness evolves into a simmering romance that intensifies as they navigate the complexities of their feelings for each other. Just when it seems like they may have found their happily ever after, an unforeseen event rocks their world, shattering the trust they had built and leaving both of their hearts broken.

I realize this won’t end well. I’m a single father and a football player with a lot on the line, and this fascination with my therapist doesn’t just test the boundaries of professionalism, it shatters them.
