Unforgettable by Bette Ford

Who needs love?

Not Anna Prescott . . . she says. A smart, successful woman of substance, she is willing to be a friend to Gavin Mathis, who plays pro football for the Detroit Lions and is the finest specimen of the African-American male she's ever laid eyes on. Gavin's been tight with her brother Wesley for so long he's almost family.

So Anna's happy when she can help Gavin out of a personal jam -- and the fact that he's setting fires inside her has nothing to do with it.

Gavin feels the heat too, but he can't trust himself to love Anna. Her folks, who've always been good to him, would be enraged. Besides, if he marries, he's afraid he'll become an irresponsible deadbeat like his dad, who just dumped Gavin's little brother on the ballplayer's doorstep. But sparks are definitely flying and this sexy lady's got his heart pumping like mad -- and it's telling him to go for it . . . and to hell with the consequences.

I can't understand the reviewer who gave this book a low rating. Not only was the book well-written with lots of plot and character development, but there's so much description and imagery, that the scenes just come alive. Nothing seems rushed or irrelevantly included in this book. This book was the epitome of a romance novel...a touching love story that has to overcome problems; in the end, love conquers all. I hated that the book had to end; I wanted to see the future of the characters. This book is definitely one of my favorites, and Ms. Ford has become one of my favorite romance writers, along with Brenda Jackson, Gwyneth Bolton, Maureen Smith, Rochelle Alers and Adrianne Byrd.

It brings out the hopeless romantic in us all. Anna and Gavin's friendship turns into something more and it almost costs him his best friend. This book should be at the top of everyone's TO READ list.

In Bette's debut with Avon Books, she hits a homerun. Anna and Gavin are like two fairy tale characters who have both awakened and discovered that their soul mates have been right under their noses. The conflict between the families (The men in Anna's family coddle her too much and balk at her relationship with Gavin who is a confirmed bachelor, or so he thinks!), was believable if you've ever been part of a closeknit family. The fear of Anna being used by Gavin, a professional football player and a babe magnet was realistic. I would warn my little sister about something like that too! Ms. Bette remains true to form where her love scenes are concerned. Keep a glass of ice water nearby. You'll need it! Also, Gavin's taking in his younger brother who was left with him by their deadbeat gambling dad was a nice touch. Gavin is a wonderful hero in that he took care of his own. Anna was also a fabulous heroine. She was strong, devoted to her family, and stood by her man. Family drama at its best. Go Bette!

In Detroit, partners Anna Prescott and Janet Raye Matthews run Prescott-Raye Catering that provides wholesome meals to bachelor members of the Detroit Lions football team. Among the clients is superstar receiver Gavin Mathis, who actually was the impetus for starting the program. Gavin asks Anna to help him with his teenage half-brother Kyle, whom his father just dumped on him. Neither Kyle nor Gavin knew of one another until addicted gambler George Reynolds left the kid with his older sibling. Anna agrees to help Gavin with Kyle.

As Kyle adapts to being wanted by his brother and Anna and her family, Gavin and Anna, though long time friends, fall in love. However, Gavin must first deal with George, who tries to ¿sell¿ him Kyle before he can declare his forever love to Anna.

UNFORGETTABLE is an interesting relationship drama that plays out on several levels besides the obvious romance between the lead couple. George is a poor man¿s version of the wastrel younger brother in the movie Parenthood. Any dealings with him are negative because he is so possessed by gambling he cannot see anyone else¿s needs. The Lions and their spouses and Anna¿s immediate family and her partner provide security and warmth that also enables the audience to see deep inside the two stars. Still, it is the nurturing Anna and the All-Pro Gavin who score the winning touchdown for contemporary romance readers.
