Not all players deserve a second chance… no matter how hot their first chance was.

Football club lawyer, Santino Rossi is known in the locker room as the two-month chump. For years he’s been on a mission to find someone he can share his basil plant with and cure him of his former playboy ways.

Tilly Logan is a fiery, Scottish lass who didn’t bat an eye five years ago when a smoldering Italian pulled her into a nightclub bathroom. He was dark, dangerous, and exactly the good time Tilly was looking for—even if he worked for her over-protective brother’s team.

But a lot has changed and when Tilly returns to London five years later only to find herself trapped in an elevator with the smoldering Italian, it isn’t a happy reunion. Especially because her brother blames Santino for her high tailing it back to Scotland in the first place.

Tilly doesn’t want a replay of past mistakes and reconnecting with Santino is playing with fire.

But if they keep their relationship a secret, it could be worth the burn.

3 Spooning is Life Stars ⭐

Tilly Logan and Santino Rossi were once lovers. An arrangement with rules and no commitments. The party girl and the manwhore; it should have been uncomplicated. They both knew that their bootycalls had an expiration. However, neither realised it would end disastrously forcing Tilly to leave London and return home to Scotland.

“Doesn’t he know we women only want men who are damaged so that we can project our insecurities on them and feel superior in our less awful fuckedupness?”

With five years between them, both Santino and Tilly are no longer who they once were. When Tilly returns to London, she finally has her life back on track, leaving the boozy past behind. As for Santino, he is now a serial dater that still can’t commit. Well that’s till these two reconnect.

Why is it that men get older and hotter while women continue to fight signs of aging with expensive creams and horrid things like Spanx? Life is so unfair.

Tilly has every intention of giving Santino a wide berth. He represents a part of herself she is desperate to forget. Yet one thing is clear, the attraction between them still rages. And the more he thinks of his reaction towards Tilly, Santino becomes adamant that she may be everything he now needs. This could be the second chance he’s been waiting for. To do things the right way.

“After everything I’ve shared with you the past week, you think a relationship with me is a good idea?”

“I think it’s a better idea than kissing you and not knowing when I’ll get to kiss you again.”


Usually this author's style of writing and humour make for a great read. But Replay was a second chance romance which was kind of meh. Although I liked the premise of both characters, together they were flat and were missing any real spark. I expected this to be pretty great even if Sports Romance is not high on my fave list. I struggled to remain engaged so there it is in a nutshell.

Tilly Logan is a fiery, Scottish lass that didn’t bat an eye when a bad boy Italian pulled her into a nightclub bathroom five years ago. Now she's back in London to help out her brother Mac (anybody here read Blindsided?) and a replay with that hot lawyer is playing with fire—especially since her brother hates him. But maybe if they keep their scorching relationship a secret, no one will get burned.

I have only read a few of Amy Daws Harris Brothers/Spinoffs, but thankfully, one of them was ‘Blindsided’ so I was familiar with the main characters of this one. It can be read as a stand-alone, but I would recommend reading that one first.

Santino Rossi is someone I’ve been curious about I was thrilled to see this book was about him. Honestly, I got it as an Audible Daily Deal and find’t really look at the synopsis so it was a happy surprise. Santino is the football club lawyer and he has a past with Mac Logan’s little sister, Tilly.

Tilly left town five years ago and hasn’t seen Santino since. Now she’s back to help her brother and sister-in-law and just happens to run into him. As much as Tilly tries to stay away from Santino, she can’t. Their connection is much too strong.

I loved this couple together and I especially loved Santino. He was so great. I loved him with his family and of course with Tilly. Both of them had things they needed to be open about before they could get serious about one another and that was a big focus of the book.

There was a bit of a bomb dropped about someone in the Harris world and I’m hoping a book comes out about that character because I’m curious! Overall this one was a lot of fun and had just the right amount of emotions, laughs, and steam.

4 Do-Over But Better Stars
* * * * Spoiler Free
We, humans, love to strive for perfection. That's a huge problem. Perfection is an impossible standard and with us actually being human, this perfection is never achievable. I mention this because, with all the stress and chaos in our lives, we make mistakes, and need to get over them.

Amy Daws does an excellent job in addressing many of the mistakes everyday people can make, especially when we are young, learning to live on our own for the first time.
Sometimes the mistakes are small and easy to get over and sometimes, it takes more than a few stumbles to realize a change is needed.

As with all of Daws's books, she uses humor and direct words to attack whatever situation she is presenting us. She gives us characters we can root for and want to go through the necessary steps needed to love themselves and each other.

Santino and Tilly have history, each carries trauma, and through the course of real communication and caring, come out the other end ready for love.

There's much to enjoy, many past characters make themselves part of it all and Daws lets us know...she isn't finished writing about this group.

I will start off by saying this book is or should be part of a series. You can tell from other interactions with secondary characters that there are other books before this. That is very disappointing to me since I would have liked to been given the chance to read those before getting to this book.

Santino Rossi and Tilly Logan were once a booty call for one another but that was 5 years ago. Tilly received some life changing news and it all came to an abrupt halt and she moved back to Scotland where her parents live.

A lot can change in 5 years. Tilly was a serious party girl drinking until she couldn’t even remember some nights and Santino was a notorious playboy. Now she doesn’t drink and he’s a 2 month chump. Santino only dates one woman at a time but the relationships are always over after 2 months.

This is clearly a second chance romance. I did like it, but I felt like both characters were a little too stubborn for my liking sometimes. All in all it’s a cute book and I enjoyed it.

Unexpected and sexy

Don't tease me with a "trapped in an elevator" scene unless you mean it! I'm kidding. Kind of. Anyways, this went very differently than I expected. I guess I was anticipating a lighter rom com, so the intense tone caught me off-guard (and there are potential triggers in the story). These two have some seriously complicated history, and that makes their interactions in the present emotional, tense, and a little awkward as they get to know each other again. Their story is compelling and engaging though, so I was definitely drawn in - and I really loved how unique it felt. It wasn't quite the light, sexy read I was looking for, but it's a successful, different take on a second chance romance.

The story follows Santino and Tilly, two people who used to hook up. At the time, Santino was a definite manhoe and Tilly was a party girl who wasn't often sober. Booty calls without an emotional attachment worked for the people they were then. But something happened, and it caused both of them to take a deeper look at themselves. In the years since, Santino has gone from a playboy to a two-month chump (aka a serial monogamist who can't seem to find the right girl). And Tilly has sobered up and focused on herself. So when they meet again, they're different people than they were before... and they might just be perfect together this time around.

While this does stand on its own, you might enjoy it better if you've read other books in the series. I'm not completely caught up, so there were a few instances where I'd have liked to have known the backstory. But this reads as a standalone, and I can honestly say that I had no idea how the story was going to play out. I loved the complexity of it, and while it took me a bit to process my thoughts about Santino and Tilly's history, I was definitely intrigued. This loses a star because it was a little easier to put down than I'd like; there were a few lulls in the story, and I also didn't love the frequent references to Santino's two-month relationships. But I liked it quite a bit, and if you're a fan of the series, there are some really great twists.

Santino has once again brought us soaring back to the Harris’ Brother world with Replay and I am still not down to earth. If there was any doubt that this book would live up to the Harris legacy (and it is a legacy) doubt no more. This book has it all and then some. Amy continues to build an empire in this series that is equal to none. Just like going to Disney World she continues to add new worlds for our pleasure and we also always get to revisit the parts we love. We never want to leave.

Finally we get to delve into Santino who we’ve been intrigued with forever. He is the fixer and has become a mixer in the Harris family. One of my favorite parts in the beginning of the story is Santino’s reference to the Bacon Sandwich Rule. It never gets old! Besides that we get to see sides of Santino that has never been presented before. He will pull you in and never let you go. There is so much more to him then what we’ve ever seen. I simply adore him.
As for Tilly, she is gorgeous but has issues that will have you rooting for her at every turn.
Both are so much more than physically beautiful. You will be cheering for them.

This is a story that has depth and demands you pay attention to it. Don’t worry there are plenty of laughs and smiles but Amy didn’t shy away from tackling the hard issues. As always Amy never fails to amaze me with how she is able to weave a complete story that brings so much together and pulls at every emotion.
As if all this wasn’t enough we get to reconnect with Freya and Mac in a big way as well as every other Harris and some Harris extensions. We also are introduced to other new characters who you will fall in love with. It’s like a buffet of every delicious character you love and you get to fill up your plate over and over again without gaining pounds.
I will definitely be re reading and so will you!

Amy Daws is the BOMB and she knows how to drop em. She’s simply the best! So is this book. And that’s all I’m saying!

I haven't read the Harris brother books so I came in with fresh eyes. A spin off to the Harris Brother Series if you loved them I'm sure you will love being able to see a glimse of them in Replay.

I loved both the banter and the conflict between the pair. There was a special appreciation for the fact that the characters were real. They had both come with life history and the awareness that comes from the way that past experiences shaped them. As such they were guarding themselves against potential pain in the future.

Tilly and Santiono had some fun sexy times and lighter moments as they rebuilt their bond and gained an appreciation for who they were as people now. A fantastic story of love and strength.

Santino, OMG, Santino, the trusted team lawyer that readers of the series wanted to hear from since he was introduced. Well, come to find out, Santino is much more than I expected, he feels like one of the guys, but you can see that the influence of the Harris family.

Then there is Tilly! Where do I start with my love of Tilly? Mac's sister comes to London to help Mac and Freya with the pregnancy, and it is sweet. Tilly and Santino have a history, and it is heartbreaking, but with a little time and effort, they come back together in an emotional ride.

I AM IN LOVE! Head over heals in love! Santino and Tilly are so amazing I can’t stop smiling!

I don’t know what it is about Amy Daws Harris world but with each book I become more and more addicted to these characters! She even gives me small doses of the amazing brothers, but in Replay she gave me the heroine that I truly admire!

Tilly is a woman who has had her world turned upside down and inside out but she fought! She’s stubborn but just like her brother, has a heart truly made of gold! Seeing her grow through this book was so inspiring that I once I started reading that was it I couldn’t stop!

Santino can not be overlooked though! He turned out to be one of my top fave hero’s from these books and his budding bromance with Mac was so hilarious I still can’t stop laughing!

This book was packed with so much laughter and loads of LOVE that you have to just read it! This was the book I’ve been needing and now my heart is content!

Oh my word how I loved Tilley and Santino ! I laughed, cried, swooned and cheered for this couple. What began as a lust infused itch to scratch five years ago has now been given the chance to become so much more. A second chance ....a Replay is on the way.
Tilly has found her way back to England to help her big brother Mac and his lovely and very pregnant wife Freya. She is a different woman than when she left years ago and she is seeing everything in a different light. What she didn't expect is the pull that she still has the Santino.
Santino may have gotten a bit of a bad wrap in the past. As the football hard hitting lawyer of the team he was a bit of a player and commitment phoebe. The moment he sees her from across the room is as if time not an issue. The energy between them is still very much alive!
It is now time for them to get reacquainted. Tilly wants to leave that old person she was with Santino behind and he wants to show her that they are both a new and different version of their old selves. This couple had wonderful sizzle fabulous chemistry and sarcastic, witty sexual banter! I loved them all of their cast of supporting cast!

Just ok

Santino and Tilly hooked up then Tilly left to go back home to Scotland to live with her parents. Five years later she's back in London to help her brother Mac because his wife Freya is pregnant and on bed rest because of a difficult pregnancy. Santino and Tilly end up meeting again and, though they are now more mature, they have some issues to deal with from the past.

All in all the story was ok, but I wasn't convinced about the chemistry between Santino and Tilly. It took me days to get through the book, which usually doesn't happen if I really love the story and the characters.

(audiobook) This author knows how to squeeze your heart, and she did it double this time around. This book was fun at times, but it was first and foremost the beautiful love story between two broken people.

I loved that, though Tilly and Santino’s first romp was supposed to be casual, they developped some feelings that stayed with them until they reunited, years later. They changed a lot in the meantime. They had to reacquaint themselves with each other before their relationship could progress, but they started again where they had left it at first. It was sexy. Very much.

I hadn’t read any of the Harris brothers books before, but I wasn’t confused with all those characters and what they meant to each other. That made for a lot of characters though, and it could be hard keeping track.

Family, and especially motherhood, was at the center of the story–obviously, with a book set in the world of several athlete brothers. More importantly, it was about accidental pregnancy, and how it can change a life, depending on what themother decides to do, and how she handles it.

Both narrators were new to me, and they were incredible. The accents–and some Italian words in the mix–were done with talent, and they gave life to the characters. The duet form helped with that. An audiobook to have absolutely.

Quickie

Tilly and Santino are AMAZING!
-This is a spin-off of the authors Harris brothers series (which I simply adore) and the book previous to this was Tilly’s brother, Mac’s story (I also adored that book so much.)
So, the bar is set high with this series/author. This book did not disappoint at all!
It had all the characters I’ve come to love in plenty of scenes and I thought that was awesome.
It didn’t overshadow this couple’s story, they are as strong and interesting as the other characters.
At times I thought I wasn’t going to like an “issue“ or secret that one of the main characters had. Once I let myself relax,enjoy and stop assuming... I loved the story and it played out perfectly for me.
I LOVE the playfulness. I love banter and sass between these characters so much! They have an edgy, fun chemistry.
Lots of heat between these two. I never realized how much I could enjoy kissing scenes until this book. Seriously, the steam was amazing! Holy hotness!
Their story is second chance that is a little different than typical second chance romance.
The humor is on point. The real life issues are there. The chemistry is scorching, the heart is definitely a major factor and the secondary characters round it out perfectly.
So incredibly enjoyable! Laugh out loud moments aplenty. Quirky conversation. I just adored this story and characters so very much!!

I am Team Santino all the way! There is so much to love about this vulnerable sexy Italian as he reconnects with Tilly Logan, our Scottish heroine, after being apart for five years. Replay by Amy Daws is the perfect title for these second chance lovers and a must read if you love sports rom coms with all the feels.

Although a stand-alone, I do encourage you to read Blindsided first where Tilly’s brother, Mac, a professional footballer, and his best friend, Freya, find love. They are prominently featured in Replay as Tilly returns to London to live with them while Freya is pregnant and put on bed rest. While utilizing her business degree to help her sister-in-law with her pet clothing business, she gets offered a dream job, and starts to think that maybe it’s time that she stops running and faces her fears and the one man who understood her like no other.

This book was so addicting; I read it in one day. Couldn’t stop reading. It was filled with so many emotions as Tilly opens up to Santino, an attorney for pro European football club Bethnal Green, about her past and how much she has changed. I admired her so much, especially wanting to be a better person and realizing the damage her behavior was doing to her emotionally and physically. Santino was also harboring a deep secret and it took the love of a good woman to finally give him the peace and acceptance he was longing for.

These two had an undeniable connection, but it wasn’t the right time or place for them back then, and I liked that things weren’t easy for them when they reconnected. They had to have patience, fight for their happily ever after, bare their souls, and realize what they wanted out of life and what they were willing to share to get there. Their relationship had so much passion, and I loved how he went out of his way to plan such very thoughtful dates. Santino is one big sexy sweet swoonfest.

Amy’s writing includes the perfect combination of friendship, family, careers, sad times, and plenty of good fun, wit, romance, and steamy times. Her characters are very real and relatable and will have you quickly invested in their families, their hearts and their happily ever afters.

It’s obvious this author does her research before publishing a book as her use of terms and words used in other cultures fit into the storyline perfectly. Both Santino and Tilly experienced tremendous character growth throughout every page, and I loved how overprotective Mac embraced and welcomed him into the family and how he could admit that he was wrong. He and Freya are always such a hoot and I laughed out loud many times at their interactions, even during the birth of their son.

If this is the first time you are reading this series, no worries, the author does a fabulous job bringing everyone up to speed on the entire Harris clan without it seeming obvious. I did read and loved every book and was so excited to get glimpses of this wonderful family and where they are now. And to think there is more to come! Wait until you read the last line in Replay! Can’t wait for Sweeper. Surprise. Surprise.

**I received a digital arc for an honest review**

Replay by Amy Daws brings Santino Rossi the first problem he hasn’t been able to solve in his years of putting out Harris brother fires, Tilly Logan. Tilly has returned to London after years away to help Freya get her pet clothing business off the ground while she’s on bedrest. Santino is thrust back into her carefully constructed life and throws her off by wanting to rekindle their previous relationship but with so much more this time. Tilly opens herself up to the idea of letting Santino but knows there is still something he is holding back. Can they find a happily ever after when there are still secrets and the past looming over their heads?

Tilly Logan has worked hard to reach a good place in her life. She is confident after the self work she has put in after what happened in London five years before. She knows that she can’t fall back into bad habits and considers Santino one of those bad habits. She finds though after getting to know him as a friend now that she isn’t the only one who has substantially changed and grown since their time together. Santino finds a way to break down her walls with his tender affection, unwavering support and appreciation of every asset, good and bad, of Tilly.

“The woman is a force of nature. Any time she comes near me, I lose all sense of control, both mentally and physically.”

Santinto Rossi has put his playboy ways behind him and tries his hardest to find the connection that all his friends have recently found. It’s not until Tilly is brought back into his life that he realizes he had found his person years ago but neither was ready. He is so ready now and works hard to show Tilly he is all in. He and Tilly are so electric together physically and are able to show how important they are through physical intimacy before they can voice it. Santino’s struggles with completely opening up about the past is so destructive that he makes a monumental mistake pushing Tilly away. Luckily Tilly is strong enough to understand the difficulties of people’s pasts and allows him to reach the point he is ready to open himself up completely, heart and soul.

“He’s somehow transformed into this sexy, domestic God-like creature that I instinctively crave.”

Replay brings all the good feelings you get when the Harris brothers are involved. This romantic comedy has you swooning with Tilly when Santino sweeps her off her feet and laughing when Tilly gives Santino that Scottish fire. The story manages to cover dark subjects while still keeping the charm you expect from Daws’ books. With the collection of Harrises and Harris adjacent friends/family you fall immediately back into the world and are cheering along with the gang to see Santino and Tilly happy together.

“Come on, Trouble. Giving us a replay will be a challenge for us both, and I know you love a challenge.”

5 stars for a second chance story for two characters who needed to do some self-work before earning their happily ever after.

Amy Daws killed it with this new book!

Replay brings us the humor we all expect and love from the author but also some deeper story plots that changed my opinion of Santino around! Santino got a bit of a bad rap in Blindsided however here we have all his truths; and they will have you feeling all the feels. Tilly, Mac's sister, is trying to stay the course and get her life together. She moves in with Mac and Freya and like a blast from her past Santino is everywhere. The past these two share is one they need to learn to move away from in order to move forward.

I loved these two together and am so happy they got their second chance. I loved all the extra time we got with Mac and Freya and I absolutely cannot wait for what is to come next. No spoilers on that from me but wow I can just imagine what is in store for us and this group!

Replay is packed with so many feels that I'm compelled to leave written proof that this book is my favorite within the Harris Brothers' world. It's masterfully and beautifully written and is drenched with emotion. Yet, it's full of Amy Daws' brilliant humor.

Santino and Tilly have so much depth that it is impossible not to recognize the phenomenal character development. As if the Harris Brothers didn't have enough amazing characters, well these two add to an unforgettable bunch. First, we get to see more of Freya and Mac, as Tilly Logan is Mac's younger sister. I mean, who doesn't love them? And since Santino Rossi is the football club's lawyer, let's just say the Harris family makes brilliant appearances (oh yes, more than one!).

Santino and Tilly's are not only connected by their past but also by their trajectories. They both show change is possible and that, maybe, the past doesn't have to define you. Their story is epic and interesting, a page-turner-for sure. It certainly shows that Amy Daws is a chameleon when it comes to writing because the hard parts are emotional, yet she manages to add the most hilarious dialogues and situations that enrich and brighten the story. She doesn't take away the weight and importance of these topics but manages to balance them effortlessly. As Freya would say, I'm team Santino!

I love when I find a super cute story, and this definitely qualifies. It’s sort of part of a series, but you can definitely read it as a stand-alone. It’s one of those where you don’t need to have read the previous books, but you will want to after reading this one. The only other book I ever read by this author had been the story of Mac, who is Tilly’s brother, and Freya. And I have to say that neither Tilly nor Santino gave me any warm or fuzzy feelings in that book. He seemed to be kind of arrogant, and she seemed to be cold and condescending. There’s a hint in there showing that these two had history, and now we learn what that is. And it really took me by surprise in a way, even though there were other predictable plot twists as well. But the main one going on between Tilly and Santino was surprising and heartbreaking. I loved their story and their character growth, not only from their previous appearance, but also from the beginning of this book through the end of it. They really learned a lot from each other and from life, and it was really great to witness. I’ll end this by mentioning, just like I did for Mac and Freya’s book, that all the action takes place in England, therefore there are terms and expressions that I just assumed what they meant haha Not to mention, like Mac, Tilly is from Scotland, so she throws some brain teasers with that too. But I loved it all and it was a great story ❤️

I am a huge Amy Daws fan. Her comedic timing is flawless. Effortless.

Replay keeps us in the Harris Brothers world, following a second chance love between Santino and Tilly.

Second chance is one of my favorite tropes. And the history these 2 have is pretty complicated and more emotional than either cared to admit.

I loved the flow of the story, the side characters, and of course the sexy times 🔥. Santino's family hits you right in the feels. And he speaks Italian!

There's also a crazy plot twist/side plot that brings us Sweeper, the next book.

One of my favorite things though, is the connection between our couple. Emotionally and physically.

Highly recommended.

I stayed up way past my bedtime to finish this book cause it was that damn good.

Amy weaves just the right amount of emotion and the right amount of witty humor for the perfect second chance rom-com.

I wasn't prepared for all the emotion. Hit me right in the feels. I loved everything about this from the overprotective Mac to the hilarious Harris clan. There was so much goodness in this book and I was giddy getting swept away in this world again.

Amy out did herself and I absolutely can't wait for more!!!!!

Oh my gosh, if you know about the Harris Brothers world (and if you don’t, why not?!) this is a must read. This is Santino & Tilly’s story. Santino has been around from the beginning, the hot lawyer getting the brothers, well mostly Tanner lol, out of public scrapes & scandals, handling contracts and all that good/boring stuff. But here we get to get down deep with him and learn so much more. And we get to find out the history between him and Tilly, Mac’s brother. And wow, it’s intense. There are a lot of intense moments in here, a lot of moments that made my eyes leak (AMY!!), and of course a lot of moments that made me laugh. These two are both filled with a lot of strength, tons of stubbornness and overflowing with heart. This was the perfect addition to this series 😍. And oh yeah, there’s this moment...let’s just say, you’ll know 😉

Tilley and Santino are perfect for each other if they can just get out of each other's way. They have a past but not willing to put their hearts on the line for a future. I loved this story and the push and pull between Trouble and Sonny. All the crazy Harris family is in the mix as well which always brings more spice and excitement wherever they go. Amazing read and it does end on a little bit of a cliffy, so Amy please write faster. Highly recommended and I can't wait for more.

Daws wrote emotional characters who were on a journey back to each other. Tilly and Santino met in their crazy 20s and it just wasn't right, in their stable 30's its their time to find their way back to each other. Tilly and Santino have such strong family ties that show in the book, which gives the book so many layers of love, laughter, and insanity. Loved that Mac and Freya were huge parts of this books as they are tons of fun along with crazy Harris clan.

Damn. Amy Daws and these Harris Brothers books really rip your heart out! I can always count on this series to be highly emotional, have complex characters, be steaming hot, and center around family.

REPLAY ticks all these boxes!

Tilly is such a great female lead. She is smart and strong-willed, and working her ass off to make the future she wants after she decides to change her life. I loved her realness and the constant struggle she had between being strong and self-sufficient and being vulnerable.

Santino is very swoony and sweet. He is loyal and patient. He is always trying to help everyone else, even while suffering himself with a secret he has hidden from everyone.

Watching Tilly and Santino come together, in spite of their individual difficult pasts, and their shared experience together five years previous, is a heartbreaking and joy-filled read. Amy Daws ALWAYS writes the complexities of life and relationships with truth and acceptance for how flawed we can each be. And I love this series because it continues to be written with authenticity and compassion.

This is intended to be a standalone romance within the series, but I have to say that there were A LOT of characters being reintroduced and explored. If you haven't read the books in the series leading up to this one I think you would find it to be far too many characters to keep track of. I highly suggest you read the entire series in order. I should also mention that this is the first book that has felt that way in this series. The other books in this series all do well as standalones.

If you are ready for an emotional journey of love, family, friendship and growth (and some seriously HOT steamy scenes) you MUST READ this book!

I hope Amy never stops writing in the Harris Brothers world, each release gets better and better. I absolutely love how she write her heroines, I always fall for them just as much as I do with the male leads.

Tilly and Santino delivered a real raw and amazing love story!

ARC received from author for an honest review

Here we go - a "sports romance" without a sports star as our lead player. We are in the sphere of the Harris brothers (Harris Ho and proud here!), with Bethnal Green's lawyer Santino Rossi, and Mac Logan's sister Tillly.

Santino is the man! He is the only other Amy Daws character who has come close to getting anywhere near the dizzying heights of my love for Hayden Clarke #MyHayden.

I loved getting into both our lovelies heads, especially when it came to learning about their past.

Though I will say I a surprised at some of Santino's actions, as he is such a protector, and I was all "what the eff, man? What are you doing?". However he redeems himself very well, and that is a good thing, as I didn't want to have to kick his ar$e hahaha

Papa Bear Mac comes across as a bit of a douche at times, but as we learn more of the demons our lovelies have dealt with, it is understandable. Plus, his lovely lass Freya doesn't let him get away with that crap.

You can't help but need the fiery Italian and stubborn Scot to get through their fights, their worries, their pasts and get their HEA.

Ms Daws has also given us one heck of a set up for the next book in the series. Believe me when I tell you, you are NOT ready for what is to come.

Bring it on!

Replay was everything I didn’t know I needed, one page was all it took for me to become wholly and utterly immersed in the world Amy Daws has created.

Tilly is incredibly stubborn, sassy, and set on a mission to prove something, and every moment inside her head made me admire her even more. Santino was cocky, confident, and charming. He stole my heart in about 2 sentences, and the moment him and Tilly were in the same room the tension between them was palpable, you could feel the history they shared and it felt like a punch to the chest.

I honestly don’t know where to begin, Tilly and Santino had history between them, but it was remarkably clear that while their chemistry had begun all those years ago, the people they were then weren’t the same people as they were before. It felt like they had known one another for a lifetime, yet, they were just getting reacquainted as the people they were now.


Amy Daws exemplary writing plucks you straight from reality and places you inside the pages, a riveting blend of soul-searing chemistry, a see-saw ride of emotions, from fluttery butterflies to heart-wrenching, giggle inducing witty banter, and steam.
