She’s the one he left behind.
Willow James, athletic trainer for the Miami Thunder football team, knows abandonment and hurt. A child of foster care, she’s been moved around and left behind more times than she cares to count. Just when she was starting to let her guard down with Braden Prescott, he left for a two year stint with Doctors Without Borders. Now he’s back.
Dr. Braden Prescott always felt like an outsider in his family of professional sports players. He’s traveled the world and is better for it, but now he’s home with a job for the Miami Thunder. When he comes face to face with the woman he left behind, their chemistry still smolders. She’ll give him her body again but not her heart.

Braden Prescott has been serving with Doctors Without Borders and he's finally returned home. He's gone to work as the head team doctor for the Miami Thunder and so while he's adjusting to his new role, he also has his sights set on winning back the woman he lost when he went to Africa two years prior.
Willow James is an athletic trainer for the Miami Thunder and she has learned to guard her heart, not only because of the tough way she grew up, but also because of the heartbreak she endured when Braden left previously. When she learns he's back, those walls that he had broken down when they were originally together are now back up higher than ever.
As Braden works to try to prove that he's home to stay and that Willow can trust him, they have to deal with work issues, a patient who they take under their wing and other issues as well. Will they be able to come back together stronger than before?
The chemistry between these two was off the charts. It was easy to tell that they cared for one another and even when they were apart, the connection was still there. I loved how they helped Aurora and the family vibe of this series is so good! Another winner from Carly Phillips!
Overcoming Willow's fears of always being rejected and that she isn't enough for anyone to love is something Braden has a long journey to prove seeing as he's let her down once already in life and proven what she has always feared. She's just not lovable enough to stick around. Braden had his own demons to chase away and deal with in never feeling worthwhile in his fathers eyes. He left Willow to prove to himself and others that just because he wasn't the sports jock that was expected in a family full of them, he still had a purpose in life.
When Braden comes home, he's determined to win back the one woman who never left his thoughts for very long. As for Willow she's moved on and dating again but never letting anyone close enough to hurt her heart again. When Braden takes a job with the Miami Thunder working for his cousin Ian, he knows it's his chance with Willow because she's also working for the team.
Can he prove to her he's back to stay and she's safe to risk her heart again and take a chance? Willow can't deny she's still attracted to Braden, after all the man is a hot doctor and has charm like no other. So she proposes they have a friend's with benefits situation until they are both over each other and the attraction is flickered out. Braden agrees to that knowing in his heart he can win the woman he loves back and get his happily ever after like his other siblings have gotten lately.
Steamy, and hot, Braden and Willow's love will grab you and take you on that journey of finding and overcoming those insecurities that everyone seems to battle at some point.
This book had me doing a happy sigh at the end. Braden and Willow had a lot to work through. Braden had to be honest with Willow about why he left, and Willow had to decide if he was worth taking a second chance on. They both became each other’s strengths and truths. While Braden’s slow and steady persistence won out, Willow didn’t make it easy for him. This story was set at a nice pace and had so many heartfelt moments. I turned the last page as a happy reader.

Braden wasn't like all his other brothers he wasn't a sportsman, he had the brains and he was a doctor. one thing his late father hated him for as he wanted all his boys to play football. so when the chance of going overseas to work he jumped at it to sort his head out and put aside what his father thought of him, the only regret was his girlfriend at the time Willow, he hated leaving her, but now he was back and for good and would do everything in his power to make her his again, gain her trust and her heart, game on!
Willow is an athletic trainer for the Miami Thunder football team, she has trust and abandonment issues due to being in foster care most of her life, and then Braden walked away from her too, seeing him again brought back old memories but she wasn't willing to give her heart up easily, if he wanted her he needed to show her and earn her trust all over again.
I have loved every one of these books all different in their own way but all with the same outcome.
I was a bit bummed by Braden. He left Willow without a second thought, went away for couple of years and then ‘cos he realised he’d made a mistake wants a second chance with her. TBH I found him a little too much and too ‘in her face’ at times. I get that he didn’t’t know her situation growing up but that didn’t make me feel any better about the way he treated her.
Willow... for her part she didn’t move on from Braden and to some extent, given her upbringing, I could maybe understand that BUT the girl really needed to live her life and she wasn’t doing that. Her trust in Braden had been shattered once and holding back in case he hurt her again was understandable.
The guy that she had kinda dated was for me surplus to requirements - didn’t much see the point of him to be honest........ harsh, yeah, but just the way I felt!!
