Catch and Release by Tracey Solheim - ARC Review & Release Blitz


He’s the pro athlete everyone wants to be.

Quarterback Trey Van Horn didn’t become the league’s MVP by accident. Years of self-discipline and iron-clad control have made him the envy of everyone in and around the game of football. But when he comes face-to-face with the one who got away, his tightly managed life is turned upside down. Now he’ll do whatever it takes to score the greatest comeback of his life.

She’s tired of being every guy’s doormat.

London Headley is on the verge of having the career she’s always dreamed of. Too bad the path to her promotion runs through the guy who broke her heart a decade earlier. So what if everything about the Milwaukee Growlers QB sets her panties on fire? She’s determined to keep things professional. Life has taught her that men will always choose something—or someone—over her. It’s going to take more than a Hail Mary to get her to buy into the fairy tale.

The only problem? Her lips don’t seem to want to follow the game plan. Not when Trey is executing an all-out blitz to prove he’s worth a second chance.

I love a good sports romance, and with the Travis and Taylor story everywhere, it's impossible not to be thinking about a football romance.

Enter this story, by an author I have read and enjoyed previously, and I had my football fix.

Trey and London knew one another when they were younger and that relationship ended badly.  I didn't necessarily love how that was handled, but they were young and it felt reasonable enough for me to not give it much thought.

I liked that when they meet again, they are both professionals in their own right, have their own goals, and feel like characters who exist outside of the romance, which is something I really liked about this title.

The chemistry was strong, and I believed in their relationship.  I also believed in the choices they made and believed they acted like real people would and not like people who acted in the way the author needed to tell the story, if that makes sense.

I enjoyed and recommend this title.







USA Today bestselling author Tracy Solheim writes books with shirtless men on the cover. Some of them are actually best-sellers. The books, not the men. When she's not writing, she's practicing her curling. . . bottles of wine, that is. She's been known to cook dinner but no more than two nights in a row. Most days, she'd rather be reading, which to her is just necessary research. She lives in the suburbs of Atlanta with her husband and a neurotic Labrador retriever. Her two adult children visit but not often enough. (See the note above about cooking.) Check out her romantic suspense series featuring the Men of the Secret Service--shirtless, of course!
