Lauren just got a divorce and her life seemed to be crumbling around her, when she returns home from seeing her dying father. To make matters worse, she can't find her dog, who was supposed to be at the kennel but her ex husband never dropped him off. When she finally does find him with a sexy quarterback, she never expected to have to go to court to get her dog back. With a fair ruling from the judge, this unlikely match is thrown together.
Griff Montgomery is the star quarterback of the Kings but he's also quite the womanizer. He has a girl in just about every town they play. He's ready to settle down and find the right woman to build his life with, but when he finds her she says she doesn't want to marry. Not exactly a match made in heaven, or is it?
Lauren is Spike, formerly known as Zander's, owner. She entrusted his care to her lowlife ex while she had to take care of her ill father. Needless to say the scalawag didn't care for Spike. Coming home was hard for Lauren, but she looked forward to reuniting with Zander. The problem was that he wasn't at the kennel as planned. Finding him with the hot and sexy Griff was a shock. The problem? Griff wasn't turning him over to Lauren. Court intervention ensues and a ruling of joint custody is issued.
This book was fun and exciting. I enjoyed the build of Griff caring for Spike and the drama of when Lauren came back and tried to get Spike back. The whole joint custody issue was extremely entertaining to read. Lauren and Griff were well written to compliment each other. I thoroughly enjoyed this book!
As the title suggests, the story is about a quarterback named Griff Montgomery. He is the star quarterback for the Connecticut Kings and a notorious man-whore. Never one to commit to a relationship, he now finds himself having a strong desire to having something more meaningful that his casual flings. This desire stemmed from the fact that he would no longer be a surrogate dad to his niece and nephew. He needed to fill the void that their moving had left but he had no idea where to start. He decided to make some changes to his home as a means of dealing with their leaving. In the process of making these changes, he found himself becoming the new owner of an adorable pug. What he did not know was that finding the pug would bring about changes that would help him in fulfill his heart’s desire.
Lauren Farraday is going through an extremely rough time. She is recently divorced, dealing with her father’s illness and trying to come to grips with the loss of her baby. She has sworn off men and as such was not looking to get back into any form of a relationship. Now to make matters worse, her ex-husband’s inhumane action has led to her sharing custody of her adorable pug with none other than Griff Montgomery. This is more than what one person can bear, however, she is determined to regain sole custody of her pug. What she did not count on was her growing feelings for the star quarterback.
Griff and Lauren were good for each other. She tamed him of his womanizing ways. He brought out her nurturing and helped her to feel alive again. He helped her to realise that she was beautiful both inside and out. Lauren is a strong woman. She had her troubles but she did not sit and wallow in self-pity. She was a survivor and I admired that about her.
I enjoyed Lauren and Griffs’ romance. The attraction between them was instant, however, I was glad to see that they took their time getting to know each other before proceeding to the intimate stage of their relationship. The sexual chemistry was intense and it was infused with humour. I found this aspect of the story quite entertaining. However, just as things seem to be going well something happened that would test their love for each other. I didn’t particularly like this part of the story. Honestly, I felt it could have been done differently. I am glad, however, that it all worked out in the end.
I was not fond of the secondary characters. They appeared shallow and did not bring anything to the story. It felt as if they were placed there to be a crutch for the main characters. There was not much substance to them.
Verdict: This was a nice romance. It was a bit on the predictable side but it was still a good story. Recommended for fans of contemporary sports romance.
