The Betting Groom: Last Play Christmas Romances: The Legendary Kent Brother Romances is by Taylor Hart. Be careful when betting, it could backfire.
Will had just gotten back from his Hawaiian vacation with Ty. He was at the Christmas charity event for the Denver Memorial Children’s Hospital. His best friends on the Titan team were there with him. A nosey reporter approached him and started asking questions about his arm. The man was relentless and ruthless with his questions. Finally, a brawl br

Tara is in a very low place. Divorced for two weeks, she's just discovered that she's pregnant. On top of that, her ex-husband/business partner has taken all of her clients in the PR firm they co-founded and emptied their bank account.

Sweetly touching 2nd chance story

Will hasn't been my favorite Kent brother, but I really liked his story.

There was a point where something happens that I don't want to spoil (though I knew it was likely because while I enjoy Taylor Hart's books, she does tend to be formulaic), but it's such an overused, trite plot complication that it irritated me enough to chop a star off.

Tara was a good match for him, and the difficulty they go thru brings them together rather than tearing them apart. Overa

Bet on it

This book was different from other romance stories I have read lately. Overall it was a super sweet story that really made you believe in miracles and faith. I even reared up a time or two with what these two were facing. It was a beautiful little story and glad I took a chance on it!

The Betting Groom

The Betting Groom - Another great Kent brothers romance by Taylor Hart! Will Kent is the quarterback for the Denver Storm. Watching his brothers fall in love has brought to mind the one that got away, Tara Lighthouse. She's in a messy place in her life and winning her heart is going to require a whole new playbook.

Nice romantic Christian tales. The perfect naughty but nice gentlemen brothers and sidekicks varying superstar lifestyles from football heroes, singing or...well, whatever may be.
What I’d call soft romance with a touch of salt.

Emotional roller coaster

Oh! I loved reading the story of Will and Tara! They were well developed and drew me in. I laughed. I cried. I truly felt for them. I was happy when they were able to overcome and trust each other.

This one was pretty predictable, but it was so cute that I didn't care. I loved Will. He was just an all around good guy. It's clean and fun. I would probably read it again. ...more
