I couldn’t wait to get back to it and it irritated me when I couldn’t. I love when a book does that. Calls to you from across the room, waiting impatiently for you to come back to it so the characters, in this case Padraig and Gillian, can get on with their lives.
There is so much to love about this book. I love broken men who want to be more than they are but can’t find their way. I love flawed heroines who ache to just move forward from their pain. I love sports books. And I love it all in a romance.
That’s this story. I loved it. I love the characters and I love the writing. I can’t wait to read it again:-)
Sexy. Passionate. Fierce.
Irish rugby star, Padraig O’Neale, has fecked up his life and is one angry man. When caught using a banned substance for his back pain, Padraig is excused from both his provincial club and the Irish International team. Right before World Cup selection. Out of choices, his agent convinces Padraig to play for a small American club in Michigan. Just until things settle down. But when Coach asks the team physical therapist, Gillian Sommersby, to help the newest Blues player with his issues, Padraig finds himself trying every wacky treatment out there from stinky salves to music to yoga. Like her therapies, the therapist herself is a bit…odd. The cute college grad in Converse and glasses doesn’t seem all that impressed with Padraig’s celebrity status, nor gives a shite about his excuses. As it turns out, she might be exactly what he needs
So if you’re looking for a good read. OMG. I’m glad this was brought to my attention:-)
