Martha was way over her head with the team she inherited, though part of her problem was foul play by people around her, but that's life.
Tony was the Knight in shining armor (or at least he thought he was) to the damsel in distress. A damsel that was not looking to be rescue, but for the opportunity to rescue herself.
The chemistry between this two was amazing. Once again the writers surprised me unfolding the story.
This is the third book in the Philadelpia Patriots series and I was very disappointed. The plots were excellent but got swept under by the many, tedious, explicit sex scenes. I understand how the writer was trying to get across the power, manipulating and control each used to get what they wanted, but it got to be too much. For me it took away from the story lines. In the two previous books, Martha was a strong, independent, head-stong, confident woman. By the end of this book, she was needy and indesive about everything and just gave up. I felt the dialogue between characters was sappy and over dramatic. I felt language was too vulgar and an insult to professionals and the British. I can't believe that they really speak that way to one another in real life. At least not to that magnitude. I got so caught up in the interview with Colton and how all that was going to play out with Martha, Colton and Ginny. And then at the end of the book, it was past tense and totally skipped over. I felt like I was robbed. I much rather have read about that then where and what positions the two main characters were doing it. I love a good, hot, romantic book. For me, this just wasn't it. Also, whoever put this book on Kindle really needs to proof read better too. Alot of bad typo's and sentence mistakes.
Martha Winston a sport journalist who happen to inherit her father's soccer team. Knowing not much about soccer except that her father loved the sport and promise to keep it going after his death. However, the team hits some financial hard times that send the vultures around to try to collect the team.
Tony Branch, former British soccer, has a desire to own an American soccer team and he has an opportunity to collect a team. Tony makes an offer to purchase Martha's team, but she refuses. Can't understand why she would want to keep a team sport that she has no clue to run. Is it possible for them to come an agreement?
As I have been reading Bigger Than Beckham for the past few days, I was trying to figure what I would say about the book. I have to be honest, I had a hard time getting into the book. I really tried. I wanted to love the book. However, it just wasn't working for me. It could have been the soccer thing or just me. I guess I was looking for more tension in the hero and heroine after all he was trying to take her team away from her. They just kinda worked things out between them. I liked the story enough to check other books by the author and I might find something that calls my name. So, I leave you today and I hope you find an enjoyable read.
