Synopsis:

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. 

Advance praise for Jackson’s Trust 
“I totally love this hotter side of Violet Duke. You still get the same sweet, emotional story but with a little bit of extra sizzle. Jackson’s Trust is a must-read novel.”—New York Times bestselling author Sawyer Bennett

Review:

Jackson's Trust was such a sweet read. I love love loved Jackson right from the beginning and Leila was oh so amazing. I loved Violet Duke and all of her books I have read and this one is no exception. It goes on the favorites list for sure!

Jackson and Leila meet when Leila starts working at the TV station where he works. Right from the beginning this book is so much fun. I just loved it all. Jackson is so sweet and so kind and just an amazing person. He is always trying to help out those who deserve the thanks and recognition while taking little for himself. He prefers to keep himself in the background and let other shine. He was amazing. When he was younger he dreamed of having a wife and family, but now he knows that cannot happen for him. Because of his past he can't have that no matter how much he might want it. All he can offer someone is sex, and he is okay with that until Leila.

Leila was so much fun to read. She is this super smart lady who loves football. She knows her stuff and can even give Jackson, the resident analyst, a run for his money. She is determined not to start anything with him no matter how attracted to him she is. She is a woman in a man dominated field and she has a hard enough time being taken seriously as it is. But Jackson? He is so great. He treats her like she is the amazing, wonderful person she is right from the start. There was no, but you are a woman!?! things with him. He sees how amazing she is and wants her to shine. He doesn't want her to be just anything, he wants her to have everything she wants and he will do whatever he can to help her reach those dreams.

Through it all the two of them are trying to stay just friends, but they were so cute. I loved watching them slowly become more. I loved watching them open up to each other and work through everything. They both have secrets that come out at different times, but oh they were great together. I loved them both so much. Leila was just so much fun and Jackson was incredible. This story did have a few surprises in store, but oh it was such a great read.
