About the Author

In the spring of 2013, Jillian Jacobs changed her career path and became a romance writer. After reading for years, she figured writing a romance would be quick and easy. Nope! With the guidance of the Indiana Romance Writers of America chapter, she has learned there are many "rules" to writing a proper romance. Being re-schooled has been an interesting journey, and she hopes the best trails are yet to be traveled. Water’s Threshold, the first in her Elementals series, was a finalist in Chicago-North’s 2014 Fire and Ice contest in the Women’s Fiction category. Three things about her: She’s a Tea Guzzler, Polish Pottery Hoarder, and lover of all things Moose. Her current positions with Indiana Romance Writers of America are Program Chair and 2015 Conference Co-Chair. The genres she writes under are: Paranormal and Contemporary Romance with suspenseful elements. Jillian is also part of an Indiana author group, which posts videos answering questions readers post for writers. Visit The Juicebox Dialogues on YouTube for some sassy video fun with romance writers.

Owen! The college football player is a sucker for a pretty damsel in distress. When the marketing assistant talks about her deceased brother and sheds tears, Owen is determined to get past her defenses.

Ember's life hasn't been easy. She is shocked when the handsome and popular Owen explodes into her life like a football player in the fourth quarter, lobbing a Hail Mary pass.

Zander is supposedly Ember's friend. But he has enough hidden agendas to fill a football stadium. He's got his eye on the game, and he'll cheat to win, implementing his own de-flate-gate.

Jillian Jacobs' Ember's Center (The O-Line Series Book 1) is an excellent story for readers of all ages. Ember burrowed her way into my heart, and lodged there. She is a heroine who needs all the cheers we can give her.

AWESOME! Is the word to describe this book. I love reading a good book with a lot of suspense. A book that is difficult to put down because it drives me crazy not knowing what will happen next. I really enjoyed the mental illness angle that played out in the book. I enjoyed rooting for Ember throughout the book hoping she would find happiness and a life away from all the craziness of her past. I read this book during football season which was fun. Overall an awesome book and a good read! I highly recommend this book.

What I Thought:

Having read Jillian's Other works, I knew I was in for something different with this book. I read the blurb, and I was hooked. I've been in situations similar to the blurb, and I felt I was already connecting with Ember the moment I knew about her life.

Ember has been dealt a hard blow in life, well, several actually. She is trying to cope with all of these issues, some of which are ongoing, and some - like her silbling's suicide - that have passed, but are still a huge part of her life. She feels lost, confused and is in quite a dark place. Then she starts to work closely with her counselor. She starts to make headway, and then a strong, domineering man enters her life.

We read along as he takes control, leading Ember to a life she hadn't expected, but at least she has a focus. Is it a good focus though?

I loved this book! I haven't read books by many authors who can tackle two very different genres and do so so perfectly. Yes, this book was dark, but at the same time there was a sweet note coming to the surface. I found myself fighting for this sweet love to become real, something where Ember could have a life and someone she could trust.

From the first page, I felt as though I was a part of this book. I loved and hated, I felt anger, sorrow and joy. I even felt lost, as much as Ember, then started to smile as the things panned out.

The pace of this book is neither fast nor slow, but a blend of both. There are angry moments that are perfectly written, with a swift pace to feel fast and irate. I also loved the slower pace, when we felt a moment of happiness,contentment or love.

The detail is excellent! Each character had a great amount of detail, really brining them to life.

This book is very hard to review. Lacked imagery - I didn't really have a clear picture in my head of the characters. Needed to show the different points of views better. I was really going to quit reading after the 3rd chapter but it seemed to get better. In the end it was a predictable read.

This action packed thriller with a little loving is exactly what you need for your holiday reading! Give this gift not only to yourself but to others. They will be happy you did. These characters get under your skin until you feel like you are a part of the plot. It will spark emotion and leave you breathless. Another GREAT book from Jillian Jacobs.

Ember Brooks is a shy woman who has endured childhood abuse, neglect, trauma and the suicide of her brother. She's seeing a councilor Xander Kane and she sees him as a friend as well as her councilor. But he wants more and when she starts dating the Manchester Marauders Center Owen Killion strange and dangerous things start to happen to Ember. The characters are well written and seem to come alive. Whats not to like reading about psychologically damaged characters and sports. I really enjoyed this book and will definitely be looking for more from this author

Ember’s Center begins a few days after Ember’s brother commits suicide. She’s back at work, desperately trying to get her life back on track before she gets in trouble with her boss and her best friend (more on him later). An important photo shoot at work means Ember meets Owen—the center of the local NFL team’s offensive line. Immortalized as part of the super-popular-with-the-ladies “O-line”, Owen is larger than life. But he’s a sweetie and takes an instant liking to Ember. Of course, a crying woman brings out his protective instincts. But with Ember, Owen thinks it might be more than that. Ember’s horrible family and body image issues (because of being a little overweight when she was younger) mean she’s got absolutely zero self-confidence. That makes Owen like her all the more, but makes it difficult for her to believe he’s into her. He’s got his work cut out for him.

Ember’s best friend and frequent shrink Xander credits himself with single-handedly fixing her life. Now Xander believes she’s the perfect woman. But he’s just a doctor-in-training and he’s never made his intentions known. Owen’s presence means Xander’s plans have to come to fruition faster than he’d intended or he risks losing everything he’s worked for. Now all he has to do is get Ember to cooperate and they’ll be golden.

But Ember is finally coming into her own, and she’s got a little something to say about the intentions of both men.

I’m not used to reading books where we get to see the villain’s POV. So I’m not sure if I’m revealing spoilers or not, but fairly quickly in the book we discover the bad guy’s identity (Xander), his intentions, and that he’s probably not quite right in the head. He’s actually super creepy despite how seemingly wholesome he comes off with Ember.
