This is the first book I have read by this author and even though I received my copy via Netgalley that was not a final version of the book and there were many errors in the version I was reading I do hope they were corrected. I am going to base my review on the fact that they were corrected in the final version.
Even though this is part of a series, it can be read as a stand alone. The author did a good job with providing the needed information about the prior characters to not leave new to the series lost. The series is about the players of a football team and this book is about Carolina Cougars kicker, Jaxon Reed. I’m sure he was met in prior books and is not well liked by half of his team things he has done in his past. He may be the best kicker in the NFL, but at the same time is also the most hated. Once again he is up to his antics and sets his sights on the new quarterback’s sister, Bristol Thomas. What might have started out as revenge turns into so much more, but will his lies ruin what he didn’t realize he wanted?
Bristol doesn’t want anything to do with the sport her brother is involved with. She avoids the players and the game at all costs. Her focus is on her job as an interior designer and has dreams of where she wants her career to go. Meeting Jaxon changed things for her, but will she be able to look pass his lies and things he has done in the past to give her heart to him?
This story is a quick read that will have you wanting to know if they will have the HEA (happily ever after) or will too much of Jaxon’s past and lies keep that from happening? There were many predictable parts to the story, but they are delivered uniquely and add in the twists to the story keep your interest. There is a side to Jaxon that most of his teammates don’t see and it was great to see those moments, especially when he was with his mom. I also enjoyed how the author didn’t have all the teammates getting along. It showed that not everyone that works together get along, but will to what it takes to win the game. I really do hope that the errors were corrected, because this was a great read and I was sad to see it end.
