As public relations coordinator for the Manhattan Marauders pro football team, Victoria “V” Price has the wealth, prestige, and glamour she only dreamed of growing up. All she’s missing is a man to share it with. V thought she gave up her shot at love when she left her childhood sweetheart in the dust of her rural Texas town, along with the painful secrets of her family life. But the past comes roaring back when Sam Fitzpatrick, the only man she ever loved, is hired as the Marauders’ new offensive coordinator.
Despite Sam’s reluctance to work alongside V, his distrust of the woman who broke his young heart is no match for their swiftly rekindling passion. Yet even as V’s tough PR persona gives way to her softer side, Sam wonders if their chemistry is enough to overcome the wounds left unhealed between them. But when the devastating truth of V’s past is exposed, threatening both her career and their second chance, Sam finds himself asking a different question: does he have what it takes to win back her love?
That said, I thought the story was a little unbalanced with the focus on the current and dealing with the past. While most of the time I liked this and thought it was well balanced, there were times where I thought the advancement of their present story was stopped by the dealing with the past. But, for the most part, I enjoyed this book and their story.
The side story with his daughter was handled well and was very emotional, which was a wonderful addition to the story and I liked that there was very little drama with her, that she reacted like a reasonably well adjusted teenager would, but without the additional drama that is sometimes used.
I do recommend this book.
