I am truly an avid football queen and was in the mood to read a sports romance. Reed and Ari's love story drew me in right away. As if I wasn't already intrigued with the reunited story long lost love, opening scene on the beach just made me fall hook like and sinker. I'm a Florida girl and the beach and FL setting in this book was so true to my life it made me really involved in the story. The fact that Reed was a Florida State Seminole Football Star didn't hurt either as they are MY team and I am an alumni.
So Reed and Ari had a beautiful love story that started in College. The love is intense but due to a huge misunderstanding, they break up. Both suffer immensely and think the worst of the other. But the love that was so intense is still there and immediately flares to life with a red hot flame when they have a chance meeting on the beach. Not only that but Ari was pregnant when they broke up and never felt she could tell Reed because of how she believed he felt about her.
Now let me tell you about Reed Matthews. Not only hot superstar NFL receiver, He always loved Arianna. When he finds out about Davis, the first thing he wants is to be a father. He is incredible with Davis and truly cherishes making memories with his son. He pushes to be part of his life but never goes overboard and patiently follows Ari' lead. The next thing that makes Reed so sexy is the way he loves Arianna. He is romantic, sexy, dirty talking, with just enough alpha male to elevate him to one of my favorite book boyfriends. He always gets what he wants and what he wants is Ari! He starts Operation Matthews which turns out to be quite the romantic ride.
There is much more to this story but I don't want to give anything away. The Romance is juicy and the plot to break them up is very twisted. I also loved that there wasn't any of the emotional turmoil that dragged on for pages. Don't get me wrong...there is plenty of intense emotions but they handle it like adults and communicate. While I do like a good angsty novel, it is so refreshing to have a straight forward romance It was a great read. I am so excited to find a new Indie Author. I immediately downloaded Ahren Sanders other series Surrending. I am already addicted to that one too! Pick this one up and you won't be disappointed. ...more

I love the Maddox Brothers! Trent will have you rooting for him and trying to solve the mystery of why Cami can't commit to such a wonderful guy. I loI love the Maddox Brothers! Trent will have you rooting for him and trying to solve the mystery of why Cami can't commit to such a wonderful guy. I loved that this story was parallel to the rest of Beautiful Series. We have glimpses of Travis and Abby through an outsiders eyes which was a real treat.
Cami was a strong girl with a large family full of brothers. She went to school and has lived in the same small town with the Maddox boys her whole life. Cami is independent, protective and loyal to a fault. Her loyalty to her out of town long distance boyfriend is almost to a fault. As a reader, it was hard to understand how she stood strong in the face of Trenton's pursuit. But as we see more interaction with TJ, the reader understands that TJ is just as good a guy...perfect really. Cami feels like he is the better choice for her but her heart and mind just can't agree.
Trent struggles to understand why Cami continues to stay loyal to TJ when he hardly ever gets time to talk to her, let alone see her. He also has been in love with Cami from afar. He pursues Cami by becoming her friend and in doing so we get to see the sensitive, warm gooey side to this Maddox brother. His interactions with Olive and the reason behind his babysitting will turn you to mush. I loved that Trent still had the Maddox swagger but was definitely his own personality. He is protective and caring with just enough alpha male to make him one of my new book boyfriends. I absolutely cannot wait for the rest of the Maddox brothers books. ...more
