These two had lots of chemistry and the sex between these two throughout the book was scorching hot, as this author sure knows how to bring on the heat. I enjoyed the bantering these two engaged in and I loved that my favorite quarterback, Joe Montana, was Shay's football hero as well. I really enjoyed watching Joe and Shay embark on a real relationship and like any relationship, trust and communication was an issue with them. Shay was independent and sassy but she really needed to move on about Joe's past and not be so insecure and judgmental. Her insecurities really showed with these moments and she's stronger than that. I really liked Joe and how he turned his life around but he should have been more upfront with her about his involvement with charities and other stuff going on in his life. He asked her to trust him but that goes both ways as well. It takes two to make or break a relationship and I spent the whole time rooting for Joe and Shay. There were some memorable moments that had me swooning. I enjoyed this story immensely despite the character flaws because emotions overrule at times. This was a great beginning and I'm looking forward to the next book in this new series.
This is the story of star quarterback Joe Reilly and Shay Beckham, the sister of Joe’s best friend and what 15 years can change!
I must admit, I will buy a book just because the name Desiree Holt is on it, but the idea of the male lead falling for his best friend’s little sister was a push as well. I liked the main characters, Joe and Shay and the way they meet again was great….but Shay kinda got on my nerves. She’s always thinking the worst of Joe, even though she’s been ‘in love’ with him for 15 years – I would think there would be some redeeming qualities she could draw on. She would talk about his ‘many women’ or ‘hookups’ or ‘harems’, it was redundant and I skipped over a fair amount of her thoughts.
Then there’s Joe… I really liked him at the beginning, especially when we learn about his philanthropy and his giving nature. But then when he didn’t open up to Shay right away, the only thing I could think was, ‘why the hell not?’ There wasn’t anything that bad, but keeping his secret blows up in his face and then Shay seems to think she has ‘all the prove she needs’ that he hasn’t changed.
Don’t get me wrong, I did enjoy the book, I just think there was a more drama than was necessary. When it’s just Joe and Shay, they are really good together. Learning about each other, meeting up with long-lost friends and the HOT lovin’ – that’s the earmark of a Desiree Holt story, I just wish some of the extra stuff wasn’t there.
I will definitely read more by Desiree – I just wanted this one to be a bit more drama-less!!
Desiree Holt has, once again, given us a wonderful love story to begin her new series, Game On. There's history, there's anger, there's jealousy and of course, there's love. Deep, heartfelt love between two people who have known each other their entire lives but never managed to connect before now. Their journey to HEA is filled with old hurts, new passion and never ending fear of being hurt and deceived. Perfect love story, right?
As a Texas girl who grew up on high school football, I especially enjoyed all the football references and the fact that our hero was a small town quarterback who made it to the NFL, only to lose his career to injury. But what he does with his live after football is what makes him a truly good man and wonderful character. And so deserving of love and respect.
So, if you're not a Desiree Holt reader, now would be an excellent time to start. Get in on the first of this new series and I can promise you won't be disappointed. I can happily recommend this to any reader who wants to lose themselves for a few hours and enjoy a great love story.
