This was a very well-written, easy read, that was very hard to put down. At times it was like a soap opera--so many things happened to the H/H! I loved the hero--he was one of those loveable "bad boy" types, but really very sweet and vulnerable at times. The heroine...well she ticked me off a bit. At times I found her selfish, childish, and a bit spoiled. But towards the end of the book she started to grow on me, and I forgave her for how she treated the hero. This book was about a young couple who seemingly had it all, yet were on the verge of divorce due largely to the husband's inattention to his wife. The hero (a world famous football quarterback) never wanted a divorce, and makes an 11th hour attempt to save his marriage. The book takes off from there, with the hero doing everything in his power to win back his wife before she is scheduled to be remarried (to a real dolt) in a few weeks. There's lots of passion, some heartache, and potential scandal thrown in--enough to make you wonder if this couple can weather the storm and put their marriage back together. This book also shows a little inside look at the life of a professional athlete--it's not all money and glamour--there's a lot they have to put up with while being in the public eye. For those who like a little sports background with their romance, I'm sure you'll enjoy this one. I'm taking off 1/2 star, only because the heroine got on my nerves a few times--4 1/2 stars!:D

Heather Great review Auntee! I hate it when I dont like the Heroine in a book. Even if its just at the beginning. Usually it sets the stage for my opinion of them throughout the whole story!


Auntee Yeah, she grated on me at times, but the hero more than made up for it!!:)

Christa Auntee, wasn't he great! She was annoying, but not to the point that I wished for him to go find someone else. I have felt that way after a couple of books.
