I broke her heart ten years ago and left town.
She hates me, and rightly so. It doesn’t matter that the rest of the country loves me, that I’m a starting quarterback with a multimillion-dollar contract. Because when I look in the mirror, all I see is a failure who was too young—and too afraid—to fight for what I wanted.
But I’m not that guy anymore, and all I need is one shot to convince her.
He has no idea what happened after he left. And now I’m supposed to work alongside him like we don’t have this huge, messy history?
But I’m older now, wiser, and I won’t let anything stand in my way of doing a good job for this league. Not even one overpaid, arrogant player who thinks we’re going to kiss and make up.
News flash, buddy: I am over you.
Kendall Ryan has been on my TBR for quite some time so when I was offered the chance to read her up-coming release I jumped on it.
Dear Jane is a second-chance romance and was absolutely addictive!
It's funny, sweet and incredibly sexy.
I loved the leading characters for they were both decent, hard-working and relatable individuals whose chemistry was off the charts.
I love how it was a sports romance but that sport didn't dominate the story, just provided a back-drop for it. I enjoyed how the story focused on the present and that the past was handled via reminiscing and character memories rather than flashback scenes.
It was a simple story of a guy and a gal falling in love again.
There wasn't any crazy exes, slutty groupies, or over-the-top external drama... Just two people and their own issues/business that needed put to bed in order for them to be where they were always supposed to be.
It was sweet, it was lovely and it was a nice happy, carefree read with minor drama.
In fact, my only grumble is that the main drama in this book was so annoying because it was so pointless! A serious case of inserting drama for drama's sake instead of it organically unfolding due to events in the story.
I definitely recommend it if you're looking for a sweet but sexy contemporary read to distract you from your day and I'll definitely be reading the next book in the series featuring Jane's friend - and Wes's team-mate - Alex (who was a scene stealer for me!).
It's nice to look at but it doesn't exactly scream 'sports romance' does it?
Still... Nice to look at.
