Score a touchdown with Julie Brannagh’s latest Love and Football novel—about discovering who you are and finding love along the way.
Jillian Miller likes her job working in the front office for the Seattle Sharks, but lately being surrounded by a constant parade of perfection only seems to make her own imperfections all the more obvious. She needs a change, which takes her into foreign territory: the Sharks’ workout facility after hours. The last thing she expects is a hot, grumbly god among men to be there as witness.
Star linebacker Seth Taylor has had a bad day—well, a series of them recently. When he hits the Sharks’ gym to work out his frustration, he’s startled to find someone there—and even more surprised that it’s Jillian, the team owner’s administrative assistant. When he learns of her mission to revamp her lifestyle, he finds himself volunteering to help. Something about Jillian’s beautiful smile and quick wit makes him want to stick around. She may not be like the swimsuit models he usually has on his arm, but the more time Seth spends with her, the harder he falls.
And as Jillian discovers that the new her is about so much more than she sees in the mirror, can she discover that happiness and love are oh-so-much better than perfect?
This was my first book by Julie Brannagh it was really good. I really enjoyed reading about Jillian and Seth. This book flowed nicely and was told from both Jillian and Seth’s POV.
Jillian was the personal assistant to the owner of the Seattle Sharks. One night after everyone was gone she snuck downstairs to the weight room and put in her workout video she has always been self-conscious about her weight. But she was surprised when Seth showed up.
Seth was a football player. He was shocked to find someone in the weight room and he had no idea who she was. But after she introduced herself he decided to help her exercise in exchange for her help in showing him around town. They had an instant friendship. Seth found himself always wanting to be around Jillian. Soon his feelings for her were more than just friends. Was he ready for the more?
Jillian was ready for a committed relationship. She wanted a family something she has never had since she lost her mom was she was little and bounced around from foster home to foster home. But she was worried Seth wasn’t ready to make that same commitment. Would he ever be?
This was a good book I wouldn’t mind reading more if there ever is another book about Jillian and Seth. If you like a good football romance definitely check this out.
Received this book in exchange for an honest review.
