I was looking for a romantic comedy, yet again, and stumbled upon this story by Sosie Frost. I haven't read anything by her before, but know that I am already stalking her to see what she is writing next! I loved the story, the humour and the romance that developed between Piper and Cole.
Pipers life took a big turn after she fell pregnant and had her daughter Rose. She was working as a sports agent at her fathers firm, and was tasked with the looking after Cole Hawthorne, and getting him to sign a Trade contract. But Cole doesn't want to be traded, he wants to stay right where he is. Piper keeps showing up at his door, trying everything she can to get him to sign. The attraction between them grew each time they were together.
It was sad to see how much of a loner Cole was; living alone, doing a lot of his training by himself in the basement, and believing that he was the beast the football league makes him out to be. He had some anger issues, but I could see that Piper had a way of pulling him out of it.
Piper was a sweet girl and an amazing mother. Everything she did she did for Rose. Working at her fathers firm was not her ideal job, but she was determined to succeed on her own. She didn't expect special treatment, and she was good at her job.
I loved seeing Piper and Cole together. They bickered in the beginning, but the sparks between them continued to grow. When Cole found out about Rose, he was a different person and seeing him with her was so sweet … my heart swelled for that man. He didn't believe he had a gentle bone in his body, but that little meatball grew on him. He would do anything for those two.
I can see that this author likes to work in families into her storyline, but let's work in a bit of contraception or the talk... It sounds like an STD waiting to happen. Despite this issue, I still enjoyed the book. If that little convo was in there, I wouldn't have an issue at all. I enjoyed the character development, the storyline and how the story wrapped up. I'm definitely trying more from this author... Especially as there are two bonus books in the back, one featuring a guy I met in this book.
Cole is a giant of a man at well over six feet and built like a brick walI. He's one of the best players in the game and also the most aggressive hence his nickname the beast. Solitary and intimidating as hell, Cole isn't a man you want to mess with. Here enters Piper, she's a single mom with a deadbeat baby daddy and an overbearing, insufferable father. Due to a mistake in her past her future now depends on Cole's career.
I really liked Piper's approach to life and her maturity.Her relationship with her daughter was totally believable and real. No perfect baby who didn't give any trouble whatsoever. Rose (Piper's daughter) was an adorable, normal, messy, sometimes fretful bundle of joy. This was a perfect ready made family for a loner like Cole.
The buildup to Piper's and Cole's relationship was intense and the chemistry sizzling. The dialogue was sharp, witty and sometimes hilarious. Well done Ms. Frost.
Piper was a fiercely independent woman who would struggle on her own rather than marry her baby daddy after realiising too late he was not worth the effort. She refused to be a Stepford wife or be harassed into a loveless marriage not even by her father.. It wasn't until she got to know Cole that she he was the one for her and Rosie.
My only problem with the story is that there was not an explanation as to why Cole had so much anger. There was only the hint that his mother died when he was young and his father hit him but not details giving any insight why Cole forced himself to be a loner. What happened to him that made him have so much rage, that the only way the beast was quelled was with being a tough football player. Maybe this will be covered in another part of the series.
