Stadium of Lights
Max Anderson enjoys all the perks of being a star NFL quarterback―including the women. He has no intention of changing his carefree, hard-loving lifestyle … until a twist of fate reunites him with the girl he knew growing up.
Abby Morrison has worked hard to become a physical therapist. She knows she needs to keep things profe ...more
Tia Lewis thoroughly entertained me with this book. It was the first work I've read from her but it won't be the last. I've always had a strange fascination with sports romances. It could be because I have a slight obsession with athletic hunks *wink*. What I liked about this one is that it didn't follow the usual formula. It was one part sports, but it wasn't bogged down with sports trivia. It was one part the friends-to-lovers trope, which is always a favour ...more
3.75 "second chance" stars
This was my first book by Tia Lewis and i pretty much liked it.
I was instantly drawn by the blurb and when i dug into the story it was fluently written and very easy to follow the storyline.
A story about a second chance reunion of a quarterback hotshot/player (read manwhore) Max Anderson and Abby Morrison "an ugly duckling childhood friend and one of the "good girls"/turned into a gorgeous swan" physical therapist for his team was both steamy and dramatic at the same ti ...more
Stadium of lights is a sports twist on a ugly duckling turning into a beautiful swan trope kind of story. I didn’t know what to expect from the blurb to tell the truth but curious enough. My first book from Tia Lewis and it was likable enough writing style. Easy to follow story line that flows.
Max is a hotshot quarterback and golden boy of his team. Abby is the girl who was his best friend. They go way back only he didn’t recognize the her when sees her again. My first impression of Ma ...more
As for the female lead, I liked her. She is one of those overlooked girl next door characters who has always pined after the boy but was overlooked. Until now.
I liked both characters' banter and growth throughout. You see them clas ...more
I did like Abby for the most part and she kept me going. I wanted her to get her happily ever after (though not necessarily with Max). I'm going to keep my eye on Tia Lewis. It looks like this is only her second book, and I only ...more

The story is told from a dual point of view- Abby and Max.
Abby is one of the strongest heroines I came acro ...more
Stadium Of Lights is a second chance, friends to lovers, football romance that I was able to read in a couple of hours one afternoon. It has some angst, some heartbreak, an asshole for a male lead and a sassy female lead who you can’t help but love.
Max and Abby used to be friends when they were little, until Abby moved away when her dad got stationed in Germany. Abby always loved Max, but Max just saw her as the ...more
Abby always thought of her self as an ugly duckling when she was young, she was tall, skinny, redhead with thick glasses. She was teased terribly, but Max thought she was great, and they were the best of friends. They lost touch with each other and she's become a physical therapist and has fill ...more
This is a second chance romance, and the main characters are Max and Abby. These two used to be best friends, until the lost contact with each other. Now Max is a quarterback for the NFL, and Abby the team’s physical therapist.
Tia has done a wonderful job in writing this storyline. This is a fun, sweet, and sexy read, and I was captivated from the very beginning. I really love Tia’s work, and I recommend to all. I cannot wait to read the next book from this ...more
4 tackle me stars!! Addicting and hard to put down!!
Max is a pro football player and he enjoys his time in the spotlight and all the perks that comes with it… ahem the ladies! Abby is a physical therapist and shares a past with Max, a past she’s not willing to revisit. But when Max shows up in her life again, that’s exactly what she has to do. I ...more

Abby had always adored and loved Max; now Max, he didn’t see her that way. He just saw her as the nerdy friend. When they end up meeting up again ...more
Abby confronted ...more
I probably would have liked this more if I had liked the characters more.Max and Abby grew up together and were best friends. they have been apart for 10 years. when they meet again, Max does not even recognize Abby. Max was a selfish, inconsiderate jerk. Abby was a little bit of a whiner. She seemed to have low self esteem. She expected Max to be a mind reader and to know all her feelings. She ran instead of confronting him. She came a lon ...more
As soon I've finished Draw Play,Tia Lewis Debut Novel,I was curious to read more stories written by this author and fortunately Stadium of Lights was already completed.
This was a nice contemporary sport romance with some smokin' sexy times.
I liked how Abby has fought with tenacity to gain the respect of all her coworkers even showing her femininty in an almost completely manly environment.
She is a tough girl but she becomes her insecure self again in front of her childhood friend,also making so
Sports romance? Football (my faves- I married a college football player!)? Second chance romance? Friends to lovers? All my favorite tropes rolled into one book! Although Tia Lewis was a new author for me, I knew from reading the blurb it was right up my alley!
I really enjoyed Lewis's writing. It flowed easily and I found myself rooting for Max and Abby to get together. I loved that Max didn't recognize Abby at first and that it took some time for it to dawn on him that she had ...more
Wow where to start firstly I may be a bit biased as my favourite genre is a sports romance but for it to be about friends to lovers, second chances, the angst was fantastic as well to the point where I wanted to scream (which for me is a good sign of a good book)
I loved Max and Abby and the boys on the team they were funny and were described exactly how boys are, there was dr ...more
Abby is a physical therapist & max is a star nfl player they knew each other growing up they lost touch 10yrs ago.
I loved the fact max didn't recognise his best friend Abby had grown from a weed to a beautiful flower!
However after a night out with friends he certainly see's just how beautiful she is. He can't resist taking her to his home where things get hot.
The whole relationship is a roller coaster she certainly never believed she was good enough for him.
After they have a falling out can th ...more

He is worse than any high school jock I have ever read. Yet he must be close to 30. Treats women like trash. The whole team seem like womanizers - even the so called committed ones join in on the whole culture in the off chance they lose their c ...more
