A sexy, small town sports romance from USA Today bestselling author Lex Martin!

What’s worse than having Rider Kingston, the star quarterback, give you the big brush-off because he doesn’t want to get serious? You’d probably think living across the street from him where you get a firsthand view of his hookups, right? 

That’s what I thought. Until someone drops off a baby with a note pinned to her blanket that says one of those jocks—either Rider or one of his roommates—is the father. The problem? Baby mama doesn’t mention which of these numbskulls is the sperm donor.

I wouldn’t care about their paternity problems—not the slightest bit—except my brother lives there too. Which means that adorable squawking bundle might be my niece, and there’s no way I’m leaving her unattended with those bumbling football players.

They need my help, even if they don’t know it yet. Once we solve this dilemma and figure out who’s the daddy, I’m out.

I’ll just ignore Rider and those soul-searing looks he gives me every time I reach for the baby. He broke my heart three years ago. He won’t get a second chance.


  • Loved this book!

    I loved this book. The path to HEA for Rider & Gabby was not an easy one. The were bumps, bruises & broken hearts along the way. Then Poppy comes along and everyone falls in love with this little cutie. Throw in a couple of skanky evil witches, a big heap of misunderstanding. Let not mention an a-hole brother who treats his sister like the plaque. Feeling Rider gets it together mans up and get his woman and happily ever after!

    This is actually my first read by Lex Martin and I was not disappointed far from it to say the least. I was hooked from the beginning to end and this book takes you on a journey of emotions and feelings. Rider and Gabby definitely don’t start out great but you can still tell the sparks are there. The author did a fantastic job of growing their relationship throughout the book no insta love here. Their chemistry was burning up the pages that’s for sure. We also get to see the amazing relationship these two have with their friends and how they are always there to help out and support them. Let’s not forget about Poppy god she was everything and the love these two have for her is unmistakable and so cute. *Swoon* I am really hoping our author gives us more stories in this world especially with the guys from the team and their friends! I am here for it all!! I loved this book so much! I will definitely be ready more!

    Lex Martin has been a favorite author of mine for a while. She always draws me in with her stories from the 1st page and leaves me wanting more at the end. Varsity Dad didn’t disappoint. You’ll fall in love with sweet Gabby. She’s been through so much, but she’s so strong. She lost both of her parents and ended up in Foster care. She’s in college and wants to be a teacher. She lives in a house with 2 other roommates. The house just happens to be across the road from the partying football house. After a sweet baby is dropped off on the steps of the football house, the mystery of who the father is ensues. Being who she is, she helps them out with the baby. This in return brings Rider into her life. He looks so perfect but has his own baggage from the past too. I absolutely love Gabby and Rider. There’s so much chemistry and lots sparks between them. No one writes angst like Lex Martin!
