    Overcoming It All Grayson has a five year plan in place and it doesn’t include babies. Now after he has won the Super Bowl three years later the woman he once loved has walked back into his life with a bombshell he definitely wasn’t expecting. I loved how this book took me through their whole relationship. There were many surprises and their love was always there. This was a page turner for me.

Their story pulled at my heart with such a strength that at times I held my breath in anticipation. The tears fell, my heart pounded and I was torn between understanding and anger. A story that is equal parts saddening as it is comforting. The ending will have you enamoured with the couple and the journey they took to their forever.

    I loved this book and didn’t expect to cry so hard. Grayson was really hurt when his girlfriend Diandra( Dee) walked away from him. She returns and needs a favor. My heart broke for him and the decision he had to make. But thankfully it’s a great happy ever after. Loved getting more of Colton and Skye too from the first book. I voluntarily read an advanced readers copy and I highly recommend this book.

    Tackling Love, book one, was a story that I really enjoyed and couldn’t wait to read about Grayson. He was so much more serious than Colton and it was good to get to know him better. He certainly had his reasons for being focused as well as for being a bit bitter. I liked him in book one and still liked him in this book but there were times I wanted to shake him a bit. Diandra was another character who was a little misguided but did what she thought was right at the time.

I liked him in book one and still liked him in this book but there were times I wanted to shake him a bit. Diandra was another character who was a little misguided but did what she thought was right at the time. I liked how she owned up to her mistake, though. I also liked how straight to the point she was and had an inner strength, she certainly needed it. This fast-paced story is told from both of the lead characters points of view and that helps us to understand them better. It is also told in two time frames, now and when they first meet and dated. This back story is extremely important to the rest o& the story. There were some interesting twists in the story that had me reeling at times, I love it when that happens! I loved the way a character from another series by this author guest starred in this story, it doesn’t make any difference if you haven’t read that particular series but it was fun anyway. A light story that is easy to read and makes you feel good as well.

    4 1/2 stars! While this could be read as a stand-alone, I highly recommend this series be read in publication date order for maximum reader satisfaction and to prevent spoilers as there are reoccurring characters set within the same universe for the most part. Contains subject matter that may be a trigger or offensive to some including adult language, steamy intimate scenes and violence such as stalking, perceived betrayal, etc. There are quite a few grammatical issues including misspellings, typos 4 1/2 stars!

Contains subject matter that may be a trigger or offensive to some including adult language, steamy intimate scenes and violence such as stalking, perceived betrayal, etc. There are quite a few grammatical issues including misspellings, typos, incorrect word choice, etc. There are a couple of scenes that drag a little or I would consider a little redundant, but this is minimal. In the story, Gray, a linebacker for a fictional New England football team, and Dee, the woman who broke his heart when she left him right before he was selected to play for the local team in Boston. What he didn’t know, and she never planned to tell him until his career was well established, was she was pregnant. Fast forward about 5 years and now she needs to tell him in hopes that he will help their son, who has developed a rare and fatal illness unless Gray is a match and gives him a kidney … oh boy, he is going to be nuclear when finds out who is the baby’s godfather

    A second chance romance that will grab you from the start. Grayson has goals for his football career that included winning the Superbowl. Little did he know goals could change. Diandra was his love until she walked away leaving him somewhat bitter and hanging with questions on why. Years later they were reconnected where secrets were shared that changes everything. Love, chemistry, heartache, forgiveness and so much more. Fast paced and well written. Loved it!!!
