This book was such a fun second-chance romance! I have been in the mood for second-chance reads lately and this one is definitely one of my favorites. Dr. Jordan Page is not messing around when she takes over as team doctor for Tim’s pro soccer team. Unfortunately, Tim has been playing on an injury and he’s determined not to let Jordan sideline him as he’s sure it will end his career. Complicating all this is that Jordan and Tim knew each other 15 year ago … and had an unfortunate romantic run-in that left Jordan heartbroken. She has decided she won’t let Tim near her heart again, but as they continue to work together they both realize that may be shared than they both realized.
Ahhh! The tension is so good and Travis did a wonderful job with these characters. Jordan and Tim both have their faults, but you can’t help rooting for them both. I thoroughly enjoyed this read!
ABOUT THE BOOK
To the world, he’s a sexy soccer superstar.
To me, he’s the arrogant jerk who broke my teenage heart–and my new fake fiancé.
The last time I saw Tim Cheltenham, he was an eighteen-year-old soccer hottie with an irresistible English accent, a painfully gorgeous face, and an enormous . . . ego.
Fifteen years later, with a medical degree under my belt and a new dream job with The Strikers soccer team—his team—I’m not about to let Tim’s bad attitude and grumpy scowl ruin it for me.
But when my chauvinistic boss implies that he doesn’t trust single women to stay on the job long-term, I panic and tell him I’m engaged. And to my surprise, it’s Tim who comes to my rescue, offering to play my fake fiancé if I’ll do him a favor–cover up the truth about his injury.
The lie could derail both our careers, and I’ve got no desire to spend more time than necessary in Tim’s surly presence. And falling for him again? Ha! That’s never going to happen.
So with my job on the line, I say yes. Now, the more time I spend with Tim, the more I sense a softer side beneath those chiseled muscles and broody exterior. But the more I understand him, the harder it is to pretend that we’re just for show.
And when a rival player threatens to expose our secret, I’m terrified I’ll lose everything.
They say you have to fake it to make it. But what happens when love is the goal?
I haven’t yet read Libby Hubscher’s debut (although it’s on my TBR) because, quite honestly, it sounded too big and emotional for […]
