When Maxine’s not working as a disability carer, she’s at an AFL game. The sport she has grown up loving. One night after a game, she meets one of AFL’s most eligible bachelors—captain of the Blues. The tall, dark haired, grey eyed god is the sort of man she would usually stay far away from. But when he leads her out on the dance floor, she finds that’s the one thing she can’t do.
He’s funny and charming. A dangerous mix. A mix Maxine can’t risk her heart on. After a night of passion unlike any she has ever known, Maxine runs. She hopes she can put it all behind her as a one-time event, but fate has other ideas in store. No matter how much you try you can’t run from some things.
Mark has spent his whole life trying to be the best he can be and live up to his father’s expectations. Now he’s finally at the top of his game; if only his team could just win then maybe his father would be proud. But with power and leadership comes other things: groupies—those fake, power and money hungry women who would do anything to get their claws in a top player like himself.
When he was younger he was happy to take what they so willingly gave but now he’s over it all. He wants something real. Like he feels for Maxine. One glance at the woman has his body burning up. And now he’s found her, he plans on keeping her. Well, that was ‘til she slipped out of his apartment as he slept.
With only a first name to go on, Mark holds little hope of ever seeing the beautiful Maxine again. But maybe, just maybe, fate might help a man out.
Finding her might be the easy part but keeping her may just be harder than marking the ball.

Mark to her Heart is a good 5* read.
The story is set around an AFL club in Victoria and Mark is the worshipped Captain. Worshipped by everyone but his father. He plays the game only for his dad. He’s tired of the Groupies, the Hanger Ons, the proverbial Pains in the Asses.
Maxine is a woman who cares for the disabled and loves her AFL and beloved Bulldogs. She’s a long way from being a Groupie and doesn’t set out to get herself noticed. But, noticed she is and Mark isn’t about to give up on the girl who tries hard to do a runner out of his life.
I know Ashlea, she is passionate about her football and the Bulldogs. It is very obvious this book has been written with both passion and knowledge. Loved it.
