Here we are in Chapter 6 of Playing For Keeps. Ryan and Samantha had sex in the hotel gym the night before then went back to their separate rooms. It's the morning and before he leaves for the stadium he stops by her room where she is getting ready also to report on the game. She tells him it can't happen again - he says I guess this means no good luck kiss... and she says it's just convenient sex for him and he says...
"Nothing about you is convenient."
Before Samantha could shut the door, Ryan reached out, putting his hand on her waist, pulling her to him.
She didn't resist. Instead she looked into his warring eyes, which conflicted with the gentle caress of his thumb across her cheek.
"Sometimes a man has to make his own luck."
Then he kissed her as if he was the conquering hero and she his conquest.
