This book will defiantly be one of the most memorable books i've read this season.

Wow, just wow.
I usually wait for many goodreads' friends to have read the book and adored it before starting it myself. I don't like to try new books. But I'm so HAPPY I read this one. I'm not sure what made me read it because I seriously never read a book that isn't already a best seller or loved by many before but I did read this one and I just want to recommend it to everybody else.
Hear me out here, there's just no way you won't love this book guys! You have to read it! It's so goo...more
I loved this emotional contemporary sports romance about a pro-football star trying to reconcile with his soon-to-be ex-wife before it's too late. It's a very moving, well written story and a realistic depiction of the difficulties and tribulations of marriage, even for two people who so clearly love each other. I'm looking forward to more from this talented author! Big 5 stars!
Can you believe it? Me, Mrs. doesn’t really read ‘sports’ romances, and I’ve read two in the last week! And enjoyed both! This is surely cause for celebration. My most recent is “Line of Scrimmage” by Marie Force. It’s about football, did you guess? It’s also about the debutante and the quarterback. But don’t hate them for that because their life hasn’t been a bed of roses.
Susannah is finally calling it quits. After ten years of marriage to footb...more

Godlike quarterback hero.
Fight. Make up sex. Repeat.
Not Rachel's thing.
However, there's a brilliant scene near the end when the heroine goes fucking bananas and throws a hissy in public. It amused me enough to increase the rating to 2 stars!
So, I was a little wary about starting this book. But so many of goodreads were a-flutter over this that I gave it a go but I am SO HAPPY that I ended up reading it!
So interesting. So good. The characters were great, and complex....more

This book and I got off on the wrong foot. I found the whole set-up so repugnant: an estranged husband who decides to get his wife back 10 days before their divorce is final, and blackmails her into doing it by threatening to drag out the divorce so she can't marry her new fiance… and the new fiance is the old boyfriend she had already dumped once for her husband… I'm channeling young Alvy Singer in "Annie Hall" going, "what an asshole." How am I supposed to root for this guy when I felt so sorr...more
This story of two soul mates who had to find their way back to each other, really moved me and I came to enjoy a plot, I'm usually not fond of at all.
Susannah and Ryan are married but have been seperated for some time. Susannah felt neglected and forgotten in her marriage, so she decided to make her own way and build a new life. When she gets engaged to a long-time friend, Ryan knows he has to act soon to get Susannah back an...more
Line of Scrimmage is one of those good books which leave you with a contented heart and a final parting sigh. It didn't feel like a rush of thrill as it came to an end but it was like one of those refreshing moments which you'd love to revive.
I adored Ryan Sanderson knowing that he was...more

Susannah Sanderstone is ten days away from freedom. Her divorce will be final, she will marry her safe high school boyfriend Henry, and all will be light in the world of previous darkness.
God I hated the premise. Susannah is STILL MARRIED to Sex on a stick Ryan, and is ENGAGED to Henry the pansy. Um no. Not so much. This shit doesn't fly with me. So she is cheating on R...more
Line of Scrimmage was a quick read, one I managed to finish in one sitting. I wasn't in love with it, but I didn't hate it. I had a few issues with it so it was just an okay read for me.
The hero, Ryan, is doing everything in his power to keep his wife from going through with the divorce. My issues were that the heroine cried a lot, like all the time. She would immediately jump to conclusions and blame the hero without even giving him a chance. Granted, he had hurt her in the past so her trust i...more

One of my Favorite Football Romances, Line of Scrimmage is so much more than what you might think by looking at the cover....Not that there is ANYTHING wrong with the cover....It just doesn't give justice to the emotion packed st...more
Marie Force delivers a compelling tale of love and second chances in Line of Scrimmage.
I loved this contemporary romance with a dash of romantic suspense. The story follows a big star (and smexy) quarterback, Ryan Sanderson, and his journey to winning his wife, Susannah, back.
Line of Scrimmage was very moving and heart breaking; with the ups and downs of marriage, the darker side of stardom and the devastating loss of a child and the affect that can have on a relationship...more

"Can't I be both?"
"You're enormously exasperating sometimes, do you know that?"
He grinned. "And you love me anyway.”
“Whew. You’re back. There was this other Susie here a minute ago, and she was really nice to me. She scared the shit out of me.”
She laughed. “They locked her back up in the loony bin.”
“Good, because there’s only one Susie for me—the one who calls me on my crap and doesn’t let me get away with jack shit. That’s the Susie I need. That’s the Susie I’ve missed coming home to over the last year.” He kissed her. “And that’s the Susie who’s going to leave a gaping hole in my heart and my life if she doesn’t give me another chance.”
