35 ring stars Down by a Contract was an Man, Son of Man entertaining and delightful read that fell into the okay zone for me I do like sports romances and themes of making right of your wrongs as well as following your dreams and falling in love but I just couldn t seem to fullyngage myself into this read a 100% There was something missing in it for me in which I just can t seem to pick outOn the bright side though we meet two heroines both of whom we see growth personally and professionally throughout the Alter Ego entirety of this read That is a definite plus for meSo over all a great read with lots of points and potential for me but didn t uite capture mentirely Hmmm maybe it s just me VISIT LOVENBOOKSCOM FOR MORE REVIEWSI love a book that draws me in and keeps me locked in the whole

Ar it s really well written the characters are well built and you will love some as much as you will hate others but The Matriarchs (The Family each of them has the perfect background to makes the readers understand them Also you have a large part dedicated to the sport but it s well written in a way thatven if you know nothing about it you are not bothered at all in fact it Notes for the Everlost even made me want to learn a little And the romance simply wonderful sweet and cute but also growing with the relationship between the main protagonists Zach and Kelsie at the same rhythm as their trust It s just superb To be honest I had some doubt about Kelsie at first until we learn about her and I can really appreciate herffort now Knowing which kind of family she had I can see why see wanted acceptance at all costs sad she wanted acceptance from the number not from the uality but she was a child then so my heart went to her When I Moan (Vassi and Seri 1: Russian Stepbrother Romance) even when we learn that her parents sides with herx after all they have done Rachel and Lavender are her first true friends because being able to navigate society and being popular doesn t mean you aren t lonely far from it Kelsie is stronger that she seems and just needed proper guidanceZach is just the opposite you have to love him right at the start he is a little like a big bear imposing on the outside but soft and fragile inside The way he gets to do the wrong things at the wrong time just make him No Biggy! even cuter I couldn t resist He is trying to do his best but if he manages on the field in society that s the opposite He prefers to be alone to do things that matters so in a sense he is all against appearances when he is also judging others on them After a new disaster at a gala he must taketiuette lessonsjust the idea made me laugh The big men who must learn how to hold their cup while I can see the necessity of politeness asking so much from athletes was a little ludicrous for me as long as there wasn t disaster it didn t matter which fork they would use to at tc But it is also part of the scheme orchestrated by Veronika who just wanted him to fail not to shine and that a character I detested strongly since the beginning after Kelsie s mother that we never see but heard Attracting Birds to Your Backyard enough about and Mark that really should have suffered Zach is all about honesty and compassion he has suffered so much but he didn t become selfish simply afraid to let people discover that fragile side of him The way he wants to wait until after the marriage before making love was simply adorable in a really good sense of the word It was about love before sex to have some meaningful and it something I respect and admire He really worked his way in my heart I was songrossed in the story that I didn t want to put the book down I had to finish it right now It s the third book in the series yes but I haven t read the others yet but I hope to do so really soon however that didn t bothered me at all It works perfectly as a stand alone Deep Listening even if now I want to understand Tyler he looks like axcellent man too So if you want to read a sport romance with a wonderful story try this one you won t be disappointed at all Book 3 in the Seattle Lumberjacks Series my favorite so farI absolutely fell in love with Zach Murphy He is a hero with some major flaws that make him Bird-by-Bird Gardening extremely awkward in social situations But on the other side of the coin he is anxtremely loyal dedicated xtremely private man He doesn t let most see his good side His sole purpose is to win the Super Bowl ring before he retires Beca This third installment was my introduction to the Seattle Lumberjacks this is a standalone story Although the author mentions previous chara Zach Murphy lives for football and it has served him well Now in his thirties he knows his time is running out This year with the Seattle Lumberjacks is probably his last shot at making his dream of a Super Bowl ring come true Unlike his old team the Lumberjacks owner xpects him to socialize and attend black tie affairs When it comes to the world off the field Zach is uncouth to say the least He tries but always gets it wrong Veronica the owner s daughter has it in for Zach and wants him off the team in the worst way When Zach once again bumbles and creates a fiasco involving Veronica and the governor s wife she sees a way to get rid of him Zach has to take finishing lessons in the social graces and host a black tie charity affair at his home If he fails he s off the team To add insult to injury his lessons will be taught by Kelsie Carrington Richmond Zach s teenage dream and worst nightmare Will Zach be able to learn the social graces reuired to stay on the team and chase his dream from the person who broke and crushed him Will Kelsie and Zach be able to forgive themselves and ach other In Texas Zach was ridiculed for being white trash trailer trash He didn t have much raising when it came to manners and the finer points of social interaction abuse being the norm in his family Zach s past brok.
