    Rebuilding Shattered Dreams

    Not being a BIG sports fan, with the exception of watching my children play, I was PLEASANTLY surprised at how much I enjoyed this novel. I have to say Ms. McFarland did an excellent job of detailing the life of a professional runner and still keeping me entertained with this engaging and inspiring romance. Definitely not the novel for readers JUST looking for a HOT & SPICY romance. Although it does have some brief sensual and romantic encounters, it's not the main focus of this novel. Ms. McFarland provides very vivid and descriptive imagery of an athlete's life and the tragedy and triumph that one might face at some point during his/her career.~~~~~~~The characters of Marlea Kellogg and A.J. Yarborough are well developed and quite BELIEVABLE. This book is is filled with in-depth detail as to what makes them tick.~~~~~~~ Marlea and A.J. literally crash into each other and from that moment on a constant electric spark SIZZLES between them. Their relationship starts as an unwilling therapist/client partnership, and slowly they learn to trust each other, developing a friendship that slowly moves along and eventually leads to them falling in love. Along the way there are several challenges they MUST overcome, separately and together in order to build upon this budding relationship. Both Marlea and A.J. show great strength and courage in rebuilding their lives after their dreams are shattered due to unexpected circumstances.~~~~~~~Ms. McFarland has written a story that touches on several emotionally charged issues such as life-altering accidents/tragedies, benefits and demands of physical therapy, trying to find the will to forgive, trying to push through and keep moving in order to rebuild the broken dreams, so that their ULTIMATE goal is still obtainable. ¿Dream Runner¿, is a HIGHLY emotional ride, with many interesting twists that kept me turning the pages just to find out what would happen next for Marlea and A.J. The secondary characters were also intriguing and added just the right amount of fun and intensity to a decent storyline. I had a GREAT time bonding with the whole cast of characters and the very ¿real-life¿ concept portrayed in this wonderful story. Overall I think it's a worthwhile read!

    Just Wonderful!

    This book was everything I could have asked for. Gail McFarland takes you on a journey from girlhood to womanhood with a determined woman of passion and when Marlea fell for AJ, I did too. And I learned so much that I had never known about competitive running, and Gail McFarland made it into a real love story! This one is just wonderful!

    A reviewer

    When Marlea Kellogg set off to win her Olympic gold medal, who knew she would run smack (for real) into former pro football player AJ Yarborough? When things change and Marlea has a devastating accident, it is AJ's off-field skills that bring her life together. It is Gail McFarland's writing that makes this couple HOT, HOT, HOT! Their trials and tribulations, and the secondary romance between his sister and his best friend will have you rolling! To say that this book is good is.... well, read it!
