Marlee thought she scored with the man of her dreams only to be scorched by a bad breakup. Now there’s a new player on the horizon and he’s in a whole league of his own…
Marlee Harper is the perfect girlfriend. She’s sure had enough practice, dating her NFL-star boyfriend for the last ten years. But when she discovers her wide-receiver boyfriend has been tackling other women on the sly, she vows to never date an athlete again. Only one problem: Gavin Pope, the new hotshot quarterback and a fling from the past, has Marlee in his sights.
Gavin fights to show Marlee he’s nothing like her ex and what a future can be like for them. Unfortunately, not everyone is ready to let her escape her past. Gavin’s teammates’ wives, who never led the welcome wagon, are not happy with her return, and they have only one thing on their minds: taking her down. But when their gossip attack makes Marlee public enemy number one to the rabid fans of the team, she worries about more than just her reputation.
Fearing she’s causing Gavin’s life more harm than good, she tries to ignore the articles and the comments. However, when Gavin makes a life changing decision without her, she’s hit with the fact that she’s allowed herself to fall back into the back-seat life of an NFL girlfriend she promised to leave behind. Marlee must learn how to balance loving Gavin without losing the independence and respect she’s worked so hard to gain; otherwise their relationship may not survive the season.
Huge shout out to Nick @ The Infinite Limits of Love for spotlighting this book, otherwise it would have literally bypassed me. This sounds like a really interesting exploration into the reality of dating a proffessional athlete and external baggage that comes with it. I’m excited to meet Marlee and Gavin, and I can’t wait to see how they navigate their relationship.
What’s your most anticipate book?
