I might have made it as an NFL quarterback, but I was still me—still living in my hometown north of Nashville and tackling being a single dad. The media assumed I wore a halo beneath my helmet, but they didn't know my tragic past. I was no angel.
Because the only woman I ever truly loved was the girl who stole my heart when it was committed to another, and I never recovered from the mess we created.
Seven years is a long time to wait for a second chance. I tried to move on and live without her. Now, Eden's returned home to haunt me all over again, making me feel all the things I can't deny when she's near.
She might have her running shoes strapped on tight, but I'm desperate for her to stay this time. In order to do that, I need to find a way for us to put the past where it truly belongs, buried six feet deep with the person whose death still stands between us.
I didn't become one of the best in the league by playing it safe. Eden's always been mine, and it's time she finally learns it, too.
I have no idea why I love sports romance, I hate sports. And yet, if it's got a hero in the book who is in any sort of professional sport, and the book is like catnip.
So, I really enjoyed Eden and Cole's story. I loved the idea that they have a history that goes back before they became the people they are now, and I loved how determined Cole was that their history and who they were to one another mattered more than anything that happened to split them up or any events in the years between.
There was just enough of the sports in the story for you to remember, and feel, like he was in the NFL without it being too much for someone who can barely tell a football from a baseball (me) and it added to the story and gave it a lot of depth.
This story had, as I said, depth, which is something I have come to expect from this author and why I will read anything she writes.
