All Andi Parker has ever wanted, all she’s ever dreamed of, is a spot on the Olympic track team. But when an accident leaves her hospitalized with serious injuries and shattered dreams, she’s not only uncertain what her future holds but also completely alone.
Drew Slater is a wanted man. Professional football teams want him for his arm. Women want him for his irresistible good looks and charming personality. But the well-crafted disguise he wears, the one that helps him score on and off the field, hides secrets. Conceals lies. Threatens the happiness of everyone around him.
One chance encounter brings Andi and Drew together, changing their worlds in ways they never thought possible. Unfortunately, what they thought they knew about themselves—and each other—might just be the biggest lie of all.
I love how J. Nathan was able to write a story that was seemingly flawless and had you so connected to the characters. You felt the devastation, anger and resentment that Andi felt when she thought her dreams were shattered. However, once she’s finally accepted what’s happened (with help from Drew) you are just as determined as she is to get back to were she ways.
But when you find out that the person you thought was helping you through a most traumatic time, really was never there…. What would you do?
This is when things started to get interesting. I won’t spoil this part for you because it’s one of the big “OMG” moments in the book.
Drew, I loved him when he was there helping Andi heal, but the one she encountered later on, I wasn’t the biggest fan. I loved the Drew that was kind, funny and charismatic and who helped Andi from day one to find herself. But after you get more of what he’s life was like before he met Andi, you can totally understand why he was the jerk that he was later on. (I would be too if I had to deal with what he had to)
Will Andi be able to repay Drew and help him heal the pain he’s been holding inside?
Or will the revelation of how she ended up in the hospital tear these two apart permanently?
Seriously, this book had a couple of “OMG” moments that have you just staring at your kindle like “WHAT?” I think that’s what makes the book even more interesting. I love that even with these little surprises, you never once are confused on what’s going on with the story or with Drew and Andi. J. Nathan has a flawless plot line that leaves you begging for more. This book is definitely a MUST READ!
