A good love story always begins the same way.

A chance meeting.

A sizzling look.

A flat tire…

Dani Miner could have been voted least likely to be a damsel in distress.

Tabor Hunter should have been voted most likely to do the rescuing.

So when Dani gets a flat tire on her way home one evening, she is, at first, less than thrilled to be helped out by a man that is clearly too cha

3.5 Bette than I expected!

When I started this I didn't know what to think. I wanted something light, but I kind of expected it to suck. Imagine my surprise when I realized it didn't!

It was a really cute story, everything you would expect form this type of book. Ok, it wasn't the most original thing I've read. But c'mon, who expects that from a contemporary?
I enjoyed the characters (I usually have a soft spot for teachers), they were funny and easy to like. And the story didn't really feel force

“Please don’t break my heart,” I warned.
“I’m pretty sure it goes both ways, baby.”

An entertaining sports romance about a chance meeting between a teacher and a famous football player.

Dani Miner is an independent woman. Never again would she be at the mercy of a man. So when she gets a flat tyre she refuses to admit that she needed the assistance of the very charming Tabor who offers his help. But luckily he was insistent, and hot and way too sexy to ignore. And when he asks her for a date, s

Review by Jen Skewes

If you are looking for a light and sweet read then Fumbled is the perfect book. I really enjoyed this one. It was light and refreshing and just a great romance between two people who are living in two different worlds.

Dani is a school teacher who is a very strong willed person and very independent. She cares a great deal for her students and her job. When she finds herself on the side of the road with a flat tire she tries her hardest to change it herself. It takes a l

Yesterday afternoon, I decided to read this book and barely took a break till I finished it... I absolutely adored this one. It has everything I'd like in a book. A thoughtful, so-good-to-be-true hero and an independent, heroine with a great sense of humor... the info of the book tells you all about the story. so other than that, I loved the writing style: It was told by both of the characters. I loved that it has many other characters. If you'd like to read a great love story, Fumbled is what y ...more

This was better than I was anticipating. It was a cute story and most of the time I really liked Dani. Other times she irritated the hell out of me. She was a coward and would lie instead of admit what she wanted. That bothered me. I really liked Tabor/JT. He was sweet, considerate, and sexy. There was absolutely no sex in this. The author would just skip right over it. That is really uncommon in today's romance novels. I found I didn't mind. overall cute story.

Fumbled is the first book I have read by TK Rapp and I am really impressed. It’s always good to be able to find a book that gives you a reprieve from the same old books you’ve been reading. TK’s approach to Dani and Tabor’s story is quite different for me and gave me the breath of fresh air I needed.

Dani has found herself on the side of the road with a flat tire. Not one to take help from others, she tries to change the tire herself. Her dad had taught her and her sister to be independent and be

I was kinda mixed about this book. I totally enjoyed it! The writing was good. It flowed perfectly. I loved Tabor!
But... I Was not really feeling Dani.

Dani was a hard person to like. She seemed to have a permanent attitude. And a major chip on her shoulder.
Even after getting with Tabor... She still gave the guy a hard time.
It always felt Iike Tabor was walking on eggshells. It was hard to read.
I mean.... He bent over backwards for her. And she really didn't meet him halfway in my opinion.

Touchdown Read!!!

Yes, I know that was cliche, but I had to say it. It was the first time that came to mind when I finished this book. As I was swooning in Tabor essence, I was wanting to take my kindle and spike it straight to the ground in a JJ Watt motion. Ok, Ok, I will leave behind the football lingo and let you all know that I totally loved this book. If you are into sport romance and picture your favorite NFL player in the faces of the characters in the book (insert JJ Watt), then this is

Light hearted read for sports novel fans.

This played like a chick flick in my head.

You know that cute fuzzy feeling you get when the main character first shows up in the movie? I kinda felt that here when they first met each other (mc's). After that, it was all "woosh" to love land.
I must admit, there were many predictable moments, but the way each character handled situations were nice.

It all wrapped up well in the end. If you're in for some light reading and would like to have a novel play l

Aww wow, this was such a lovely book to read.

It all begins with a flat tire and a handsome man rescuing the damsel lol. As Tabor and Dani begin to get to know each other some things are thrown in their way. Read the book to find out what happens with these two lovely characters and watch their story unfold. It's actually quite beautiful.


Tabor and Dani have such a cute relationship. Their whole storyline was wonderful. The characters were great. I would highly recommend anyone wanting to read a

TK Rapp has a way of making you WANT to know her characters- and FUMBLED is no exception! (It helps that I constantly picture Tabor as JJ Watt, lol!) Dani was a strong, hilarious match for Tabor (I loved her inner monologue) and Tabor was sweet, patient, and SO sexy. Their passion was a slow burn with just enough heat to add to their romance. LOVE!! <3

I hated this book. The female lead is a total Mary Sue, constantly setting herself up for failure in her relationship. The male lead comes across as a solid, dependable guy, but she manufactures so much drama. Ugh. Barely managed to finish. 2 stars for proper grammar and lack of typos.

Fumbled is the first book of T.K. Rapp’s that I’ve read, and it was pretty awesome. It had a sweet love story, amazing lead characters, and featured my absolute favorite sport.. Football!

Dani is a strong character who keeps to herself, but has a great group of friends that are there for her as well as her family. She’s single (by choice) and working on moving past, past hurts with her ex, as well as trying to find funding for the Rivers Kids program she runs after school at the school she teache

This book just appeared on my horizon last week and I asked a friend of the author to “make” her send me a copy of the book because I love Football and TK is a new author to me that I met at a recent signing so it’s a win-win for me.

I really enjoyed this book. It was a quick, light and humorous read. Our H/h meet on the side of a residential street when Dani Miner has to change the tire on her ’57 Bel Air and as she struggles to get the lug nuts loose on this classic car, several

This is the first book by T.K. Rapp that I have had the chance to read and review and let me say, I can not wait for the next book to release in this series.

Not only is this a story that will have you enthralled from the very first page, but it will have you grinning if not laughing through out most of the story. The back and forth wit that seemingly flows between Dani and Tabor is just perfect. I felt as if I was sitting in the very room with them listening to the back and forth banter between

I read this book through Kindle Unlimited. It is my first book by this author and the writing was very good. Its a really sweet story of Dani who is a school teacher and Tabor a professional football player. It is told in alternating pov's.

Dani has a flat tire and Tabor stops to help her. She has no idea who he is and he asks her out on a date. Right before the date she finds out exactly who he is and is a little intimidated to be put into his limelight. She tries to put him in the friend zone h

One of my biggest obsessions is football, so any book that has anything to do with my true love is getting 4 automatic stars from the get go. Add in the fact that I absolutely LOVE the rest of the story gives that last start to make it an amazing book! Dani Miner is a teacher that doesn't follow football. So when she's stuck on the side of the road and Tabor Hunter stops to help her, she has no idea that he's the star defensive end for the San Diego Quakes. When she agrees to go out with him, sh ...more

A chance encounter leads to more than what Dani bargained for. Finding out the same man that changed her tire was also a famous football player and most eligible bachelor has made her hesitant to pursue a future. The spotlight or so many seeing their relationship, digging into personal space and crazy fans is almost enough to tell the football hunk goodbye. But the fact that he is perfect for her in every way with his charm, humor, trust, and attentiveness has her convinced they will be fine.

What a beautiful story!
I have been a fan of TK Rapp for a while and I was so happy when I heard she had another book coming out. What I find refreshing about this story is the how they met and connected. She didn't know his real identity and he just wanted to be a normal guy without all the fame. As their relationship grew throughout the story, you couldn't help but root for Dani and Tabor. I could understand her hesitation because of who he was and she had to decide if it was something she was

This was simple, sweet romance that starts at the side of the road but blossoms behind closed doors because once it goes public it becomes fair game for the world to judge & speculate. Will the connection that Tabor and Dani have be able to survive the public scrutiny and tabloid fodder or will Dani's insecurities get the best of them?

I enjoyed this story but just wish that there was more focus on the relationship between Tabor and Dani while they were in the thick of it rather than the time
