About The Off Season:
He had it all… The day Ian “Tag” Taggart’s world comes crashing down around him, he’s sitting in a fast food drive-thru, waiting for an order of fries. Golden boy of the MLB and shortstop for the Washington Rampage, Tag quickly finds himself losing grip on his superstar life with the use of two awful words: sexual assault. The only problem? He’s innocent. Tag’s willing to do anything to prove to the world he’d never commit the crime he’s been accused of. So when his agent suggests taking a break from the spotlight, he listens. The quiet town on Maple Lake is everything Seattle isn’t. And Lexi Barnes is everything he wasn’t expecting to find. Running from a past she can never escape, Lexi wants nothing to do with her new neighbor. But fixing up an old house takes more work than anticipated, and the new guy in town happens to have quite the set of carpentry skills. She won’t let herself fall for him though. She has no room in her life for love. If only someone would tell her heart that. He’s funny and charming. She’s closed off and rude. Together, they’re like fire and ice. Prepare to get burned this Off-Season.
I'm a big fan of sports romance so when I saw the blurb for this book I was immediately intrigued. Megan Green was an author I had not read before so I wanted to give her a shot as well. Overall, I did like this book.
I liked Ian. I thought the author took a topic that's very relevant today and put her own unique spin on it through Ian. I felt for him, truly. I had a bit of a harder time with Lexi. I just never fully connected with her. I liked her eventually but I definitely struggled in the beginning.
I thought these two had chemistry but it definitely took a while to get there. I think once they were together it worked, it just took longer than I expected to happen. Part of that could be that I was lacking that connection with Lexi so maybe I didn't see the connection as early as I should have. But I did like them once they were together.
Overall I did like this book. I will admit it took me longer to get into it and the ending felt rushed to me. But the writing itself was strong. I will try this author again and would recommend this title.
