He’s everything I ever wanted. So why can’t I tell him the truth?

WARNING: This book contains dark and disturbing themes, strong language and over the top sexiness that may be uncomfortable for some readers!


I couldn't explain why I always had to lie to people I cared about. Was I trying to protect him? And the sorrow in his eyes when I told him that Kimmy w

This doesn't contain dark and dangerous themes. It contains some too stupid to live characters. Aside from the characters having a past together, I have no idea what anyone sees in anyone else. The hero drinks when he is upset. He sleeps with just about anyone. The heroine makes a martyr of herself. She lies throughout the story about everything. But, especially about her daughter. The hero gets drunk at a bar with some friends, sticks his hand up a strange woman's skirt and then decides he want ...more

So this was a super short and cute little read. Though it was short I still liked both the characters and thought Ryan was super sweet.

Could not get into

Sorry, the character development was lacking and there were to many grammatical errors. I finally started bypassing the filler words and just read the conversational portions.

This is a second chance romance with a HEA! I enjoyed this book. it was sweet and perfect for me. I would have liked this book to be a bit longer though. I would liked it to have a more depth to they story but overall it was a quick happy read. I would read a longer version of this book.

Basic Story with Inconsistencies

FYI: Title story ended at 3%, and bonus content comprises the remainder. This review is only about the title story.

This story follows a sort of second chance, secret baby framework. Scarlett keeps the baby a secret from the football star, because reasons. She also keeps the relationship from everyone close to her, although she seems rootless in a small town. Timelines are inconsistent. Ace seems too young, timeline-wise, to be under consideration for the honors s

Received ARC in exchange for an honest review. I really enjoyed this book. It was a fun quick read. Under 100 pages. Ryan "Ace" and Scarlet are two people connected by Ryan's sister Lisa. Scarlet was best friends with Lisa when they were in high school and therefore felt Ryan was off limits. Ryan and Scarlet have feelings each other and give in to them shortly before Scarlet is to leave for college. Ryan is two years older and goes on to become a pro football player. Scarlet pushes him away beli ...more

Ryan appears to have the life people dream of...

I read the title story, which is a quick, light a fun read that had several other works bundled with it when I got it.

Ryan appears to have the life people dream of, but when he impulsively returns to his hometown for a visit, he catches up with Scarlett and is reminded of the things his perfect life is lacking.

I enjoyed the appreciation of family, siblings, children... and community in this story. It was a wonderful reminder that lives that seem i

At the end of high school, Scarlet was secretly seeing the brother of her best friend, Lisa. They all went their separate ways after graduation with Scar keeping a secret from Lisa and her brother Ryan, a.k.a. Ace. Four years later, Lisa and Ryan return to their hometown for Lisa's wedding. Lies and secrets are about to be unraveled.
This was a quick read. I did not feel as though it was cut short or a cliffhanger or lacking in depth. Although short, it is a full story with a HEA. I enjoyed it.

I received a free copy of the book in exchange for an honest review. This was a sweet story with minimum angst. We have Ryan a football player and Scarlett, the girl he fell in love with. They have a wonderful night together, she finds out that she is pregnant and doesn't let him know. He comes back to town for his sister's wedding. The truth unfolds and they are able to work it out. It ended rather abruptly with them having a happy ending.

I received this for my honest review. Scarlett works hard and supports her and her daughter but when her old best friend texts her to say she's coming home to get married the only thing Scarlett can think about is Ryan Lisa's brother. She has worked so hard to keep the secret from them now it will come crashing down. Ryan is a professional football player who is tired of the Hollywood life and going home seems the best choice ................ this is a great read with a lovely story.

it was good for what it was a short story, wish it was longer.. Scarlet didn't click with me...I don't like liars...especially when you keep your life hidden...I can understand hiding your child...that's protecting your baby...I know it's fiction and I'm getting all judgemental lol. sue me lol...I liked Ryan a lot...he is just a good home town boy who made it big and finally realized stardom isn't all its cracked up to be. He wants to come home and when he does man the drama

Ryan and Scarlet's story, is amazing! Beautiful love story, she gave up on them when she realized she was pregnant and new he would give up his career, if he knew. So she made the choice, right or wrong? Now thrown back together for his sister/ and her best friends wedding, what secrets will be revealed, and at what cost? Great story❤!!

Received ARC for honest review.

This was a quick read second chance story with a HEA.
Scarlett has a secret that she doesn't want anyone to find out about and is having a hard time keeping it from Ace when he returns to town.
Ace is growing tired of his Hollywood lifestyle and realizes he wants a more "normal" lifestyle.

Spell and grammar needs correction

I liked the story and the characters. I would have enjoyed the book if spelling and grammar were corrected. The editor did not do their job well.

Horrible editing

This appeared to be a great story. BUT. the turn a page & it was a repeat of about half the previous page. I struggled to complete the book.
Sweet short story, wished the ending had not been so rushed though.
