Wow, wow and wow! I love sports romances. Who doesn’t love a hero who is strong, fit and sexy? And even though I thought that this was another hot jock meets sweet and brainy girl romance, I still wanted to read it and give it a chance. And it turned out to be one of the best romance novels that I have recently read. Kate Donovan certainly accomplishes a very difficult feat. It’s not easy to feel kinship towards a couple who finds love on the heels of a divorce that effects 4 young kids. But she not only accomplishes that, but she makes us love each and every character involved. Jill Colby has just divorced her husband. The only man she has ever had a serious relationship with. But she is left with a less than stellar view on sex. That all changes when she meets Jayce. A friend of her sister’s, Jayce, shows her that there is absolutely nothing wrong with her and gives her a night to remember ;) But will their one-night-stand arrangement be enough now that they have both seem to have found what they were looking for? Jayce Spurling is still in shock after the divorce that his wife sprung on him. He is ready to do anything to get his wife and four sons back. But three months is a long time and he is more than ready to get some action between the sheets and it seems that Jill is the perfect woman. She also is not ready for a serious relationship and just wants some fun. So what better way to release some stress than to have a steamy night with a woman who makes him feel like million bucks? I must admit that there were times that I felt a little torn about Jayce and him getting back with his ex-wife. No one wants a family to split or to have four young boys live apart from their father, but believe me Kate Donovan does an amazing job of not only having us root for Jayce and Jill but also feeling compassion for them. This is my first Kate Donovan book and I absolutely loved it. And even though this is the sixth book of the series, I in no way felt lost or clueless. If anything, I loved the other characters so much that I ended up buying the previous books to read their stories too!! This is an absolutely delicious series that no fan of romance should miss! Thank you Netgalley and Beyond the Page Publishing for providing this ARC in exchange for an honest review.

What a treat this story was. It is filled with sexual tension, an engaging storyline and unforgettable characters. I not only enjoyed the two main characters, but there are also fun and entertaining secondary characters as well. They are all close friends and help each other whenever needed. They are also opinionated and have comments about everything. I have read and enjoyed all the books in this series. Each book is a standalone but all the characters are interconnected. Jill Colby and Jayce Spurling get together for a one night stand. They are both just coming out of difficult divorces and neither one of them is looking for anything permanent. However, once they are together, they can't seem to stay away from each other. I really liked Jayce and Jill. They are both feeling insecure after their divorces and they help each other feel better about themselves. . Jayce is a well known professional football player and an all around nice guy. When he meets Jill, he finally finds someone who likes everything about him and has no interest in changing him. Jill is a loving and compassionate person and perfect for Jayce. She is an attorney and has always done the right thing, until she meets Jayce. He brings out the bad girl in her. Jill has never met anyone like Jayce and he makes her feel things she never knew she could feel. I was pulling for Jayce and Jill and I wanted everything to work out between them. They are always thinking about everyone else but themselves. In their past relationships they were never appreciated. They are great together but people and circumstances keep pulling them apart. I enjoyed this heartfelt story. I was given an advanced copy of this book to write an honest review for Netgalley and Cocktails and Books.

Received an ARC for my fair review for netgalley. Yeah this one was not for me, and I do not think it is a stand alone, there were too many instances where the couples from previous books were around, so if you have not read those books you might have been lost. Now, I understand when people want to work on their marriage because of kids, but your wife cheated on you! And your friends, and this woman you are sleeping with are encouraging you to get back together? yeah, I am so not getting that. Then, Jayce and Jill have sex, without protection (hello???) your exes, cheated, cheated on you!!! Frustration..It does not deserve a 2 I mean it just my opinion, so I am not going to do that to author, but god, help me understand...
