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.

JACKSON’S TRUST Excerpt :
“You going to stand there and hover outside my door all day, sunshine?”
Leila gasped. Embarrassed about being caught, but too curious about what she’d just eavesdropped on not to find out the story behind it, she stepped into the office and sank down in the chair in front of him.
He had that sexy backside-casually-resting-against-the-edge-of-the-desk stance as he muted his comm and unhooked his earpiece the way she imagined Clark Kent nonchalantly slid his glasses back on after stopping a speeding bullet.
Did the man do anything un-sexily?
“You just talked Steve through his entire segment.”
Jackson shrugged. “The guy’s been trying to quit smoking ever since he lost his uncle to lung cancer. So he’s been a little on edge. I know the bosses have been talking to him about his contract, and expressing some concerns.” His expression steeled stubbornly. “He’s a good anchor. I didn’t want to see him lose his job just because he was trying to save his own life.”
“And you didn’t do this down in the production booth because . . . ?” She didn’t really have to ask. She just wanted to hear him say it.
Another half-shrug. “It didn’t need to be broadcasted. We all have rough times.”
Leila slowly shook her head in wonder. “Seriously, Jackson, you’re just a prince among men.” Not wanting to sound like a gushing fangirl, she added lightly, “I want to be just like you when I grow up.”
His hazel eyes flickered in amused pleasure over the compliment, before they dropped down to her lips like they did more frequently than she imagined he knew. She immediately kept talking, mostly to avoid licking her lips, which were—per usual during one of Jackson’s gazes— tingling as if he’d just kissed her senseless. “By the way, how did you know I was standing out- side your office just now?”
He remained silent for a beat until his eyes left her lips to meet hers again. “You always smell like strawberries.”
The quiet sentence sounded like a confession, uttered as a benediction. But the blast of heat exploding in his gaze shortly after morphed it into something so much more.
This time his gaze was hot, hungry, and knowingly fixed on her mouth as she bit her lower lip to stem the gasp she couldn’t hold back.
His voice was a gravelly rumble. “That’s how I always know when you’re nearby, sun- shine.”
