My review:

TJ is going through a tough time, and reacts by pushing away his family and spending his time drinking and fighting. After a wake up call, he finally gets himself together and focuses on his family and the gym he owns with his brother. Breeze is the youngest of her four siblings, raised by her older sister after losing both parents at young ages. She is a free spirit, working to save up money to travel the world like she’s always dreamed.

When his friends have a baby, TJ is at the hospital to visit when he takes a wrong turn and is confronted by a woman he doesn’t know. He learns that his one-night-stand wake up call was pregnant but died shortly after giving birth to his son, who he didn’t know existed. Suddenly his life has a new focus and he gives everything he can to being a good dad for his baby boy.

Bree is hired at Flex, TJ’s gym, as a yoga instructor and when she is so good with the baby, TJ also hires her as a part time nanny for him. They have been attracted to each other since meeting, but neither wanted to act on it for various reasons. Until of course they couldn’t help it.

This was a pretty good book. A couple times Bree’s age would show in her reactions, but TJ was mature enough to talk things through with her so they could work things out. The best part of this story though was all the interactions with baby Abel. They are both so good with him! TJ and Bree are good together, and their family and friends support system is  incredible.

The Red Zone by Amie Knight

The Red Zone, an all-new sexy, second chance romance from Amie Knight, is available now!

The Red Zone FOR WEB.jpg

They say the red zone is the hardest place to score.

But for me, those last twenty yards were my sweet spot.

They didn’t call me Lukas “Last Minute Lucy” Callihan for nothing.

I was at the top of my game…until life sacked me harder than any linebacker ever could.

Losing my mom was devastating and left me as the sole person responsible for my little sister.

Taking care of Ella and juggling my career was like playing the hardest game of my life.

My only saving grace was Scarlett Knox, Ella’s sexy, red-headed, no-nonsense teacher.

She loved Ella. She hated me.

She thought I sucked at this parenting thing, and she wasn’t wrong.

But whenever she was around I got the same earth-shattering, heart-stopping feeling I did when I was only twenty yards from the goal line.

She made me feel like I was back in the red zone, a place I’d never fumbled.

Until now.

 

My review:

Scarlett and Lukas were friends in high school when Scarlett was a freshman and Luk was a senior. She was his French tutor but they soon became close friends. Shortly before leaving town, Luk kissed Scarlett and then never talked to her again, breaking her heart.

Now ten years later, Luk is on a successful NFL team on their way to the Superbowl when he gets word his mother suddenly died. He moves back home to Alabama, guardian of his little sister Ella. Little does he know that Ella’s beloved teacher Ms Lettie is his Scarlett.

I loved this book so much! Luk is all about his family. He has adored his sister since she was born. But becoming her sole caretaker is another thing. He struggles with so much – his loss, being what Ella needs, his new team. And Scarlett is still the one who can help him. But she is afraid of letting him in again.

This book was so well written. The story is captivating and I felt like I was right there with the characters, experiencing things as they did. Luk and Scarlett are so perfect for each other, and I love how they created their own family.
