My book boyfriend- Cole from Playing to Win by Jaci Burton

Hi everyone welcome to another week of book boyfriends co hosted by yours truly whilst Missie @ The Unread Reader is studying hard for her final semester of school.
I ADORE Jaci Burton's Play-by-Play series, she writes the most fabulously hot sports romances and her heroes are always very deliciously alpha male-ish.
Her latest book is Playing To Win, now, look at that cover what's not to like about that book? I have a large postcard of the cover in pride of place in my office. I may have actually licked it once or twice and have spent a large amount of time looking very closely at the groin area *winks*
Anyway, the hero Cole is a wide receiver with the Traders (being Scottish I don't actually know what that means but I don't even care) he's a bit of a bad boy hot head with a reputation that screams I am not a team player, so when Savannah is sent to work with him as his image consultant sparks obviously start flying.
I picked a few Cole quotes that may tempt you:

Savannah's first glimpse of Cole pretty much sums up how gorgeous he is: 
"Lord have mercy, but Cole Riley's photos and videos did not so the man justice.
In person he made a woman go weak in the knees. Savannah was glad she was sitting down, because she understood the mystique she'd read about in the tabloids and all the articles about him as a lady killer. Sure, she'd seen all the photos, and he certainly was pretty. Great body, beautiful dark hair...He was perfect and delicious. About six foot one and 215 pounds of sex on a stick would be her guess."
 As a professional footballer he's not exactly lacking in self confidence:
"She met him outside the locker room after he took his shower.
"You still here?"
"I am." She followed him down the hall. "You had a great practise today. You looked amazing."
That got a twitch of a smile from him. "Honey, I am amazing."
"Your modesty touches me."
 Despite all his bravado and stubbornness when he says words like this, I just melt into a puddle of goo:
He took her hand in his. "I'm in love with you. I don't take those words lightly, Peaches. And with love comes commitment. I'll always be here for you. I'm not going anywhere. I'm never going to leave you."

*Le sigh* hot cover and hot sports hero who made me laugh and drool, Cole Riley is definite book boyfriend material.
