Since he is the Seattle Stars goalkeeper, Alex Gordon has to stay in great shape and often runs in addition to regular practice sessions. One early morning run has him meeting up with Harper Jacobs, whom he knows because of mutual friends yet has never heard anything personal about her. After leaving London and coming to play soccer in Seattle, he has not had any relationships with the local women. However, Alex would really like to become better acquainted with Harper, if he can just get her to open up to him as she always seems so guarded.
An event in Harper’s past has continued to influence her current life for way too long. Being around Alex makes her want to take a chance and let a man into her life once again, especially since the soccer player is so thoughtful to her needs. Harper does not realize how much he wants her to be happy, plus thinks he is the right man to make her smile more often. But first they must triumph over some past issues that are not easily forgotten.
BIG WIN deals with the subject matter of violence against another person. Harper lived through a terrible ordeal four years ago, and though she has moved on, the memories are still with her and can resurface without warning. I thought Ms. Croix managed to bring much realism into the story when her characters cope with challenging emotional topics, and I definitely thought every scene played out with much believability. Conversations are sometimes filled with humor when all the friends get together, and then there are the instances where discussions are exceedingly serious. I really like the group of people Ms. Croix has conceived for this series, as they get along so well and I enjoy when new details about them become known.
Harper and Alex are very attracted to each other, which causes their sexual relationship to be explosively fiery. Yet he is not one for talking about his feelings, and she is unsure where they stand at times. This leads to situations where feelings are confused, and my concern for them continued to grow. Alex is a true hero in the story, and when his protective instincts kick in, I wanted to sigh. BIG WIN is an emotionally rewarding romance.
I voluntarily reviewed the book and all comments are my honest opinion - 4.5 Stars
This was a great book! Loved the first of the series and this one just followed along with it perfectly! Loved Alex's personality of being a rock and that he was willing to take advice. I didn't blame him one bit for his anger towards her attacker. Harper blew my mind in several spots and it was excellent to see her overcoming her past. Definitely cannot wait for more from the Brit boys!
Harper was raped 4 years ago and has not been interested in anyone since. She believes that she will never be interested in a man in that way ever again. Then she runs in to Alex in the park as she is walking her dog. They know each other as their best friends are engaged. Sparks start to fly between them and Alex wants to take things slow but Harper sees the man who basically got away with raping her while they are in the park and decides that what she needs is a fling with Alex to overcome her lack of interested in sex. Once Alex finds out what happened to Harper he tries to slow things down even more but that doesn't work. Can Alex convince Harper that he wants a long-term relationship not just a fling? What happens when he meets the man that raped her when he is alone?
I loved this book so much that I bought it!! The quite protective British football player finds his match in an unexpected place! He does nothing in a rush, while she has a past that haunts her. Yet she gives him a chance, trusts him & their love becomes deep! An awesome book!!
