The Dating Playbook has already been named Oprah Daily’s 50 Most Anticipated Romance Reads of 2021 and Buzzfeed’s Romance Novels You Need To Read This Summer, and is the continuation of the story of friends Samiah, London and Taylor from The Boyfriend Project. When it comes to personal training, Taylor Powell kicks serious butt. Unfortunately, her bills are piling up, rent is due, and the money situation is dire. Taylor needs more than the support of her new best friends, Samiah and London. She needs a miracle and Jamar Dixon might just be it. The oh-so-fine former footballer wants back into the NFL, and he wants Powell to train him. There's just one catch—no one can know what they're doing. But when they're accidentally outed as a couple, Taylor's game plan is turned completely upside down. Is Jamar just playing to win . . . or is he playing for keeps?
