My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This author always produces a story with humor and sexy times and this sports romance is no different. The journey ahead requires breaking through preconceptions and taking the time to connect. The story delivers. This author always has a good story line and the difference lies in the telling, with lots of humor, sexy times and also great sorrow. Every emotion on the scale is engaged during the story.
Emerson, on her first day in her new job for a real estate agent, is urged by her Uber driver to “trust the universe” and if she only knew what the universe had in store for her.
Hunter “The Golden Boy” Browning soon discovers that there is more than meets the eye during his first meeting with Emerson, and he likes what meets the eye very much. He uses his usual charm, which hasn’t failed him yet, to try to win her approval. No luck. He didn’t become a big football star without persistence and he uses everything in his bag of tricks to ensure that he spends more time with her. Emerson has no time or emotional energy to deal with this cocky jerk but she desperately needs to keep him happy in order to keep her job.
Neither main character initially takes the time to learn to know the other and both will find that was a mistake. Hunter is much more than he seems and his life and career have taught him to keep his cards close to his chest.
There remains an opportunity to bring an additional dimension to the characters but a compelling story nonetheless.
