Caleb has just signed a contract with a new team which is part of a new league and so his football career isn't over. His focus: the game. Too bad their team is on a downward spiral before they can even begin and their starting quarterback is at the center of all the doom. No one can stand the guy, but Caleb is determined to make the most of a bad situation. He's just got to keep his head on straight. He had no plans for a relationship because he couldn't guarantee that he'd be staying in town. ...more

I had high hopes -- it's football romance and I love a good game. This was no winner for me though. The writing felt awkward and stiff, the characters immature, and the storyline limited. I just wasn't in it to win it. I don't think I'll be moving forward with this series. ...more

I'm a big S.R. Grey fan, as I've always found her stories to be highly addictive, so there's nothing better than Ms. Grey creating a story about my happy place, football, since I'm 100% obsessed with this exciting sport. Fair Catch is the story of Jodi Knapp, a wedding planner, who finds herself in a bad situation, who is rescued by Caleb Fortier, one of the best tight ends to ever play the game. She instantly feels an attraction to her sexy rescuer, but doesn't trust her heart one bit, so she's ...more

This was an enjoyable read. Caleb plays for one of the worst football teams ever. One night he sees a woman in need. That woman happens to be Jodi. After saving her from a bad date with one of his teammates they start a relationship. Of course there is drama but in the end it all works.

This book had me hooked from start to finish and I absolutely loved both Caleb and Jodi. So much so, you couldn't help but want to be friends with them.
Caleb has a rather sad team he's playing for and when things get pretty bumpy hes not sure what will happen, then he meets Jodi...Oh boy, you can feel the sizzling chemistry between them and the way they get along is they've been friends for ages. The banter was brilliant and Jodi with her best friend Becca was fun to rea

(audiobook) I was excited about this book because of... hum... the narrators, and because it's a sport romance. Neither disappointed: the narrators did a great job, and there's really some football in this sport romance. The rest, though...

I liked the characters. Jodi is fun and her relationship with her best friend is priceless. Caleb looks like an alpha male but is instead a real gentleman. They meet when he saves her from a terrible blind date with the local a**hole--the new quarterback of th
Contributed by: Alex L.

Something about them just click and it is so right, when love works. Their relationship is easy as how it should be, only issue is Caleb job. Jodi and Caleb have to work to keep them solid, even when the world is trying to tear them apart.

I must say S.R. Grey pulls you in and keeps you on the edge of your seat until the very end!

When things get hot and heavy, there's a confrontation between teammate and Caleb runs scared!

5 Star Review Fair Catch (Men of Fall #2) by S.R.Grey
Book two in the latest exciting new series from S.R. Grey and I was so excited to dive in.

They believe that tight end, Caleb Fortier is washed up, but he is bound and determined to prove the critics wrong. He has no time for love and yet fate steps in to put a spanner in his plans in the form of Jodi Knapp.

Jodi has been disappointed in the past and although she is a wedding planner, she does not believe in love or a happily ever after.

(4 stars)

When Jodi helps her bestie out by going on a blind date in her place, Jodi almost immediately regrets helping. A date that is super handsy and making her more uncomfortable with every second that passes, she ends up locking eyes with a hottie at the bar, who ends up coming to save the day. Thankfully instead of causing a huge scene, the hottie, Caleb, knows her blind date and ends up getting the date to leave. When the two of them are left to their own devices they st

Caleb was certainly more than a fair catch !! Caleb has just received a second chance on the football field with an up and coming team ...The Comets . Jodi is a wedding planner that just did her bestie a favor by going out on her blind date. The date is more than disasterous and a handsome man comes by to save the day. Caleb should be focusing on football but soon finds the lovely woman in front of him more captivating ! This was a great quick read that takes you from the football field to the b ...more

This is the second book in the men of fall series and I have to tell you that it does not disappoint.
The chemistry between Caleb and Jodi is freaking great.

This book left me super satisfied and there was points where I seriously laughed out loud because it was just that great.

This story has its highs and lows and leaves you turning the page as fast as you can because you just HAVE TO know what happens next.

Let me just say I’m glad that Jodi didn’t like Dumbo and was ogling over Caleb from the

I love S.R. Grey's writing and love her books, but this book wasn't a favorite of mine. I had a hard time connecting to the characters. It's a good story, but I felt detached from the characters. I really liked Caleb. He's good book boyfriend material. I loved Caleb and Jodi's date at the fair. That was my favorite scene in the book. I really didn't like Dan, Caleb's teammate. Though I wasn't the only one because he rubbed many people the wrong way in the book. I was waiting for karma t

Jodi and Caleb meet while she is on a terrible date with one of his teammates. Caleb saves her and the chemistry is alllll there. These two are pretty adorable falling for each other. Caleb isn't sure about being in a relationship because he should be focusing on football, but there is this pull to Jodi he really can't ignore. Jodi is falling and she can't help it.

There is a slight of suspense, their connection is there, cast of characters were fun. I enjoyed their story and looking forward to t

Fair Catch by S.R. Grey is the second book in the Men of Fall series and gives us a fun and charming sports romance. Caleb is dealing with so much right now, including an unsure future. The last thing he has time for is romance. Then a sweet and sassy wedding planner enters his life. Jodi does not believe in love after being hurt before. And yet she is drawn to Caleb. Together they share great chemistry and I loved the banter between them. A quick, sexy and charming read!

Happy reading!

This is the 2nd book in this awesome series, and is Caleb and Jodie’s story. When Caleb and Jodi lock eyes in a bar, he comes to her rescue when she is in a sticky situation and the chemistry between then is sizzling. This is a beautifully written story which is humorous, with witty banter and with just a tad suspense, which all kept me hooked and intrigued throughout. I highly recommend for all.

This was a great read. Jodi and Caleb kept me wanting more.

Caleb isn't looking for a distraction he is here to play football.

Jodi is just helping a friend out.

When Caleb comes to Jodi's rescue the sparks fly. These two have an instant connection.

There were twist and turns as they go but love finds a way to win.

A great read look forward to the next book.

Found this to be an enjoyable read! There is a lot of indecision and doubt as Caleb and Jodi work toward a relationship. Will jealousy split them apart? Great characters with interesting interactions add to an entertaining story. Recommend this book!

I voluntarily read and reviewed this book; all opinions expressed are my own.

She stepped in to help her friend on a blind date and ended up meeting her soulmate. Jodi was on the blind date from Hell when Caleb came to her rescue. They hit it off and everything moved along with them. They were very little suspenseful moments but you also get lots of steamy ones and funny moments. Great read and great secondary characters.

I was given an advance readers copy of this book and have decided to write a voluntary honest review. Caleb I find is really different from Graham. I mean Graham was hot shot. And Caleb is trying stay a float but the man does have potential. Jodi was really up beat, but I have to be honest here and say I felt there connection was kind of forced. Like they were trying to hard. Cause I mean Caleb's main goal is football. Which in my opinion took away that spark from them. ...more

Caleb isn't really fussy when it comes to the activities he does with his woman, " we’re on our way to some mystery location of her choosing. That’s cool. I like surprises. I don’t care where we end up anyway, so long as I’m with her." Sometimes its just easier to let his woman have whatever, "...she’s in a feisty mood. But she wavers in her insolence when her eyes trail down my almost-naked body. Smirking, I reply, “You keep the sweatshirt. It looks better on you, anyway.” I liked this bo ...more

Love this sports series!! Hot football players and romance mixed with an interesting storyline. I found myself laughing and enjoy this story wondering what was going to happen next. Caleb and Jodi had the perfect amount of chemistry and the suspense aspect of the story made things more intriguing. One story you want to check out and definitely a series not to miss.
