Joe Dean Billodeaux, womanizing star quarterback for the New Orleans Sinners, thinks maybe, just maybe, he should look for a more wholesome woman than the ones who quickly signed his little black book when his promised season of celibacy ended.
Nellwyn Abbott, who helps fulfill the dreams of critically ill children, isn't interested in Joe, his black book, or becoming one of his conquests. After overcoming childhood leukemia, she knows there is more to life than casual pleasures. While she rebuffs Joe at every turn, she finds herself repeatedly thrown together with him by well-meaning friends.
Though spooked by Nell's cancer experience, Joe realizes there might be more to life than sex and football. Can he convince Nell to give them the family she always dreamed of but thought was out of her reach?

With the second installment in The Sinners Series, author Lynn Shurr lays the foundation for what will be many hours of fantastic reading.
WISH FOR A SINNER tells the story of bad boy Joe Dean Billodeaux. He meets Nellwyn Abbott as part of her job linking ill children with visits to their football heroes.
From the beginning, it is evident that these characters are incredibly well developed. Joe Dean's larger-than-life personality is conveyed through his persistence to claim Nell as his.
With the New Orleans Sinners football team serving as the backdrop, there's all sorts of drama associated with the players. Add in plenty of laughs and more than a little attraction for a fun, solid read. There's even some unexpected drama to keep the readers guessing.
The writing style is engaging, which means this is one book that simply has to be read all at once. Even though I wanted to smack Joe Dean a few times, he managed to redeem himself. As for Nell, she's a solid character that is perfect as the matriarch of the Billodeaux brood.
Having read one of the later books in the series, it was fun to see how the family started. I look forward to more in this series.
