I’m Alabama’s star wide receiver. I’ve got mad skills on and off the field, and it’s no secret I’m heading into the draft after the upcoming season. But I’m home for the summer to make some cash before my senior year. Being back under my parents’ roof isn’t the ideal situation, but the moment I see Marin, the star of my adolescent fantasies, I know it’s about to get interesting. She may not have noticed me back then, but I’ve got a feeling it’s just a matter of time before she lets me turn those fantasies into reality.
The last time I saw Trace Forester he was just a kid tearing up the neighborhood on his skateboard. That was when I was foolish enough to think I had the perfect husband and the perfect life. But now my life is in shambles and Trace is back, all grown up, hot as hell, and exuding major confidence. It would be so easy to fall for his good looks and undeniable charm. So easy to let him into my life. Too bad I learned the hard way that nothing worth having ever comes easy.
I generously received this ARC from Give Me Books in exchange for an honest review…
Flawless. That is the word that comes to mind when I think about this story! When I first saw that this book was up for review I jumped at the opportunity to devour another one of J. Nathan’s extraordinary stories. The moment I got confirmation that it was sent to my kindle I knew there was no way I was waiting any longer to jump into this story, even if that meant I was going to look like the walking dead the next day. Seriously who needs sleep when you have Trace Forester? No one…that’s who!
For Forester was simply AMAZEBALLS and I absolutely adored everything about it from start to finish. This story was totally a swoon worthy read that will have readers on the edge of their seats as they experience all of the emotions within this beautifully captivating story. You get a little bit of anger, heartbreak and a whole lot of love. The instant chemistry between Trace and Marin was undeniable, especially to the people around these two. While others might not have agreed them being right for one another I knew right from the beginning that this story was going to be hot, hot, HOT! These two may seem like an unlikely pair, but they are totally meant for one another (even if the age difference might have a few people questioning their relationship).
Oh and have I mentioned that we get to see Finlay and Caden from For Finlay, the first book in this standalone series. When I found out that Trace was getting his own story I was thrilled because I really liked getting to know him in the first book. I cannot wait to see what the author comes up with next, but I must say I am really hoping Samantha (Finlay’s friend and roommate) gets the next story and her HEA!
“You sleep with him yet?” Gayle asked.
“Oh my god. What is wrong with you?”
“Me? Have you seen the guy?”
Outside, Trace tossed the football gently so CJ had a slight chance of actually catching it. He didn’t. It bounced off the grass in front of him, but he ran after it, laughing as he did. “Yes, I’ve seen the teenager in my backyard.”
“He’s not a teenager.”
“Yes, he is. I looked it up. He’s nineteen.”
There was a pause on her end, like she just realized I was a sicko who’d actually looked him up. “Who cares? You’re single and he’s hot. Have you seen him in his uniform? The guy could be a freakin’ underwear model.”
I laughed as I turned from the window and moved into the living room. “No. At least not in person.” I’d seen pictures on the internet.
“Girl. When are you ever gonna have a hot piece of ass under your roof again?” Gayle asked.
I scoffed. “You’re acting like he sees me as anything other than a soon-to-be-divorced woman with a kid who needs a guy around.”
“Marin, you’re beautiful and fun. You deserve to get some action.”
“You do realize you’re encouraging me to jump his bones, right?”
“I never said jump his bones. Just wear something tight. Bend over and let him see your hot ass. You’d barely have to do anything.”
“You’re insane.” I laughed. “And I could go to jail.”
“Why could you go to jail?” Trace asked from behind me.
I spun around, my eyes bugging out of my head and my heart drumming in my chest. Trace stood in the doorway smirking at me, like he’d heard my conversation.
