Supposedly undersized for the NFL, quarterback Brett Gunnels went off to do a stint in the U.S. Army right out of high school. Returning damaged yet stronger—and more determined than ever to prove himself—he was the last pick in the draft. Mr. Irrelevant, they called him. But he’s a starter and a winner, no matter his past few years as a backup. Now he’s going to prove it.
Estelle Harris is engaged to a man she doesn’t love, working in the wrong job, and fooling everyone including herself in the process. Her love of animals is the only thing that gives her purpose. As she shares that love with the Lumberjacks’ reclusive quarterback, and much, much more, it’s only a matter of time until their friendship turns that final, hot, dark and forbidden corner. There’ll be no going back. True love is like football. It’s not always how long you have the ball. It’s what you do when you get it.

This is the first book I have read by this author, so I was not sure what to expect. I have to say, I thoroughly enjoyed the book. Time of Possession is the 5th book in the Lumberjack series and can be read alone. As I said, I have not read any of the previous books, so I was really hoping I would not be lost. I was not disappointed. Even though I had no back story and did not know anything about the other books, this book was not hard to keep up with or fall into. Brett just received the opportunity of a lifetime to step up and lead the Lumberjacks after the star quarterback got injured and will be out the rest of the season. Brett has heard all the stories about him not being big enough, etc. to lead a team, but he is determined to make it work. After all, this is the opportunity he has been waiting his whole NFL career for. What he doesn’t expect is to fall for the fallen quarterback’s sister. Estie likes control and knowing exactly what is going to happen in her life. That is one of the reasons she is set to marry her longtime friend, even if the chemistry is not there. However, when she meets the delectable Brett, she is beginning to second guess her life choices. Brett makes her feel things she never has before, threatens to break down her walls and bring chaos into her life. Will Estie be able to let go and follow her heart? Will Brett wait on Estie to overcome her past? This was a sweet book about a man overcoming his demons and going after what he wants in life. Estie was so afraid of failing that she settled for a nice, calm, structured life that denied her true passions and desires. When the two lost souls found each other, it was hard to deny that they were exactly what the other one was missing. Brett needed support and love that he had never been given and Estie needed the strength to follow her heart and dreams. The book sucked me right in and I had to keep reading to see if they would get their HEA. There were several times that I really just wanted to slap Estie to make her wake up and realize that she had a man who adores her just waiting on her to make up her mind. I loved that Brett was not ashamed of how he felt about Estie and didn’t hold back when he knew that he was in love with her. It was truly a sweet story and one I enjoyed reading.
