Amanda Shaw has pulled it together. It’s taken a couple of years, a boatload of hard work, and a ton of self-discipline, but she finally has her problems in a headlock. Her yoga studio in the city has become so successful she’s opening one near the beach, and her relationship with her ten-year-old son is improving every day. The last thing she needs is a monkey wrench thrown into her smooth running life.
Grant Hendricks is one big monkey wrench. The four-time Defensive Player of the Year, three-time NFL sack leader, and all around football god has officially hit rock bottom. A devastating back injury means he may have to retire and that scares him more than doctors telling him the next hit could leave him paralyzed. All he needs is a quiet place to think and his teammate’s beach house sounds like just the place. Problem is, the woman already living there.
|Amanda Shaw has overcome a lot in her life and she is not complaining. She has a wonderful son, a yoga studio with a friend and partner that is thriving, and being sober for three years. Now she is going to spend the summer in the Hamptons at her brother’s house in order to open a second studio. Everything should be looking up, except her son does not want to go with his father for two weeks, does not know why they have to leave the city, New York oh and when she arrives at the said house it looks like a party has been going on. As she goes further inside she is shocked, surprised to see standing in the kitchen in his full birthday suit none other than Grant Hendricks. He is a four-time defensive player of the year among other things and her brother’s former teammate since her brother retired. Now he is throwing off her chi. finding out that he is recovering from back surgery she has to make it work. It is not working for weeks, with him or the building they are wanting to use as a studio. Everything changes when Sam asks her questions about a word at the grocery store. Once home they have a come to Jesus moment with her spraying him with the garden hose. After this, you really begin to see both characters more. You only saw Amanda at first but now the author starts reveling Grant and when this happens the book takes a very good turn and has some surprises as well. Overall a very good book with very good characters and very much worth the read. I received this book from Netgalley.com I gave it 5 stars. Follow us at www.1rad-readerreviews.com|
