Fletcher Adams, international football star, finally seems to have made the changes in his life that he desperately needed. The past is firmly behind him, where it belongs. He’s settled back in Scotland and enjoying his football career more than ever. Now, he’s focused on Playing to Win, and not just any end of season trophy. No, the trophy he wants more than anything is Jessica.
Jessica Taylor, once again, has to rebuild her life after her ex-boyfriend attacked her, and deal with the aftermath of his death. Her focus is on regaining her strength and determination, and with help and support from Fletcher, she’s certain to find light at the end of a dark tunnel.
Not everything goes to plan for the young couple, and it’s not long before Jessica thinks it’s a bad idea to make plans for the future. After all, the last plans she had for her life were cruelly snatched away. Fletcher has to prove to Jessica that he has changed from his wild days as a player off the field. Is love going to be enough to keep them together, or will they allow the past to come between them?
I generously received this ARC from Give Me Books in exchange for an honest review…
I am so happy that I didn’t have tor wait to read this book, especially after that epic cliffhanger at the end of the first book! When I initially signed up for this ARC I had no clue that this book was part of a series, but luckily I received a copy of both books. Where do I begin? I think the most important part to note about this story is that it is not a standalone series, you need to read the first book in the Beautiful Game series before diving into this one. Trust me when I say if you don’t you will have a difficult understanding certain aspects of the story that were revealed in book 1.
Another thing about this amazing story that I must note is that the author (Karen Frances) know how to develop her characters in a way that they stay with you long after you finish the story. Honestly, there is so much that I want to say about this book and yet I’m lost for words because I don’t believe that they will do this book justice. I have say that I absolutely adored the chemistry that radiating off of the pages between Jess and Fletcher. Oh boy do these two have chemistry. Originally when I started reading this series I planned to read the first book one day and then the second book another day, but as soon as I reached the cliffhanger at the end I couldn’t wait and I immediately dived into the second one. I think that this series took me about four (may five) hours to finish because I literally couldn’t put it down. Nothing was left untouched and the book ended perfectly! I cannot wait to check out what else this author has to offer in the near future!
