Reseña del editor
From New York Times and USA Today Bestseller, Vi Keeland, comes a sexy new novel. The first time I met Brody Easton was in the men’s locker room. It was my first interview as a professional sportscaster. The famed quarterback decided to bare all. And by all, I don’t mean he told me any of his secrets. No. The arrogant ass decided to drop his towel, just as I asked the first question. On camera. The Super Bowl MVP quickly adopted a new hobby—screwing with me. When I pushed back, he shifted from wanting to screw with me, to wanting to screw me. But I don’t date players. And it’s not because I’m one of the few women working in the world of professional football. I’d date an athlete. It’s the other kind of player I don’t date. You know the type. Good looking, strong, cocky, always looking to get laid. Brody Easton was the ultimate player. Every woman wanted to be the one to change him. But the truth was, all he needed was a girl worth changing for. Turned out, I was that girl. Simple right? Let’s face it. It never is. There’s a story between once upon a time and happily ever after… And this one is ours.

The story moved along fairly quickly, and I enjoyed the snarking back and forth between the two leads. However, there were too many ghosts from the past in this book. I was glad they found love again with each other; it just took them a while to get to that point.
The other woman angle is what spoiled this one for me. I hated the handful of chapters told from his first love's POV. I skimmed most of those, reading only enough to get the gist of what was going on because I didn't care what she was doing, thinking or feeling. She needed to be less prominent. She didn’t belong in this book.
Another issue I had is one that’s a pet peeve of mine – the lack of descriptive text. What did these characters look like? There wasn't enough description about either one of the main characters or even in the romance scenes. Those were sadly lacking. I expected more, given his character and the way he dirty talked her all the time (and given that cover!). All I know of their physical appearances are that she had lots of dark hair, and he had green eyes. I couldn't mentally draw a picture of either one of them. There was more description of the "other woman" character than there was of the two protagonists. Why?
May have some spoilers ....
The addition of Willow was unnecessary. Plus she was given several chapters in her POV. I hated her even though the author tried very hard to make her a good guy. I had already accepted Delilah as my heroine. There was no way I would accept the junkie. Maybe I wouldn't be so hard on her if I wasn't all in for Delilah.
Then there was Delilah backing out of the relationship because of her out of the blue unresolved feelings for her dead boyfriend. It wasn't a big deal until Willow showed up. Last I was frustrated with the amount of time Brody and Delilah stayed apart at the end. They spent the majority of the second half of the book apart until the final scene. Brody spent more time with Willow than Delilah.
I did love the final scene and really loved the epilogue. I am a sucker for epilogues that show the couple as a family. This one was really cute.
I have read the summary to this book multiple times but the reviews that talk about the same thing I had a problem with kept me from buying it. Unfortunately for me I didn't read the reviews and didn't remember my issues this time. I wish we could make notes to ourselves on Amazon. I have made this mistake before.
So I loved fifty percent and hated fifty percent, so I guess three stars. However I do not recommend this book and I am bummed I wasted money on it.
I still love the author though.
Delilah has a tough job. She works in an industry where it's a bit of a men's club and she's one of very few women who steps in to the club and dares to do the job as well, if not better. She isn't a stranger to the game. Her father was a star football player when she was growing up and because she takes her job seriously, goes out of her way to know as many statistics as possible about football and the players. As a sports reporter, one part of her job is to walk into the locker room after a game for an interview. Some of the players are respectful, while others go out of their way to make her uncomfortable. One of those players that do an excellent job of making her uncomfortable is the quarterback, Brody Easton.
Brody has spent the last few years concentrating on his career. Football is a very important part of his life, but for awhile there, real life and issues intruded that nearly took it all away. After having a few seasons on the sidelines, he knows where his head needs to be. Women have a place in his bed, but relationships are not high on his list of priorities. His priorities change when a curly haired, beautiful woman tells him straight that she doesn't do hook ups. What's a bloke to do? Try and have a relationship of course.
Brody is fond of walls. Especially if there's a woman between him and the wall. Especially, especially when that woman has her legs around his waist. Brody is a DIRTY TALKER. He does it extremely well. I was feeling extremely hot and bothered before the action even started...and the action definitely lived up to the words.
Brody is also a sweetheart. He's been going to a nursing home to visit a woman every Tuesday for years. Marlene, was there for him throughout his life and now she has dementia. His dedication to her is only one of the many things that demonstrate how sweet he is.
This review is mostly a dedication to Brody. I can't help myself, he was a bloody good character. He wasn't perfect, but he tried his hardest to be a good man and find goodness in other people. Delilah was also pretty cool. She has faced her own challenges and heartbreak, but by then end is stronger and confident in herself and the relationship between herself and Brody.
There are interesting additional characters and some of them I loved. I would love to see Indie get her own story and maybe even Michael too...but not together. There were a few people we meet that didn't really have their stories finished and I kind of wanted to know what happened to them in the end. Maybe a story for them too. I'm thinking that I may be a new member of the fans of Vi club too. This will definitely not be my last story by this author.
