About JACKSON'S TRUST
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.

“My life is . . . complicated.” Jackson broke his gaze away from her. “A relationship would be doomed to fail from the start.”He sounded genuinely disappointed. Almost wistful. The way her grandmother had sounded years ago when her doctors told her she had to change her diet to cut out sweets, her favorite thing ever.His eyes found hers again. “Funny thing is that I used to be one of those guys who figured he’d have a kid or two by now. Cute hell raisers who’d help me spoil their mom on Sunday mornings, that sort of thing.” Doting affection filtered into his tone. “And vice versa. A partner in crime who’d help me plan surprises for the kids that would be so stinkin’ adorable that I’d max out the memory on my phone taking photo after photo.”Good grief, she was pretty sure one of her ovaries just fainted.Leila had the sneaking suspicion that she was going to fall for this man. Hard. “So because of your secretly complicated life, you only date women who want . . .”“Sex.” His eyes stayed glued to hers as he dropped the one word like a bomb. “Just sex. At their place, not mine. Occasionally, with lunch or dinner as well, but never breakfast.”Wow. That was the very definition of just sex, alright.“That honest enough for you?”Yep. That worked. Did it settle her curiosity at the moment? Unquestionably. Did it get her to want to widen the number of spaces between them on the game board?Not so much.She watched him watch her reaction to his answer, and gave him the smile she knew he wasn’t expecting. Along with the follow-up she knew he really wasn’t expecting. “So you flirting with me earlier was you picking up on some sex-only, no-breakfast-in-bed vibe I have going on?” she teased. “That’s a pretty powerfully accurate gift you got there, Skippy.”Aaand they were back to standing on the same square on the game board.“Sunshine, why do I get the feeling you don’t really have a boyfriend?”

4 Stars - Would Recommend to a Friend

When we first met Jackson and Leila, they seemed to be fairly equal even if she was a few years younger. I really enjoyed watching them get to know each other and their relationship develop first as a friendship then as more. In the early stages, I fully expected the source of conflict to come from Leila's family or her ex-boyfriend. Ms. Duke did a fantastic job of surprising us with what exactly made Jackson's life complicated and the conflict that eventually created.
These two were interesting characters and had a fantastic interactions from the first day they met. Not only were they great to watch together, but they were people that I could see myself relating to and being friends with - if they weren't fictional! Jackson also had a couple of really great friends that added to the humor in the story.
I really had fun spending time with Jackson and Leila. Both had interesting family histories that made their genuine "goodness" something that was easy to appreciate. Jackson's Trust was a great read and I am looking forward to seeing what Ms. Duke comes up with in future books in the series.
