I can’t wait to see more of this anthology but this story pulled me in from the first lines and left me wanting more. Champion is a star, the biggest quarterback in the game, but without football, his life is empty. He doesn’t want to want more but he’s being forced to admit that his current lifestyle isn’t working for him. Football has always been his life, but it’s no longer enough. He’s not sure how to make changes but when he meets a gorgeous woman on the beach, far from home, he knows it involves her. She’s the most beautiful woman he’s ever seen and there’s an instant connection between them. Electra is alone on this island but can’t seem to relax and recharge. She’s had it rough and though her boss means well, forcing her to take an all-expense paid trip to paradise, Electra doesn’t know how to get better.

Since the day her life changed, she’s only ever been able to get by, nothing more. She doesn’t see any way that’s going to change because she’s mostly just going through the motions, not really living. Until she meets a cocky athlete on the street. Electra tried to ignore him but he chased her and that was enough to intrigue her. These two are fire together and I need the rest of their story. I received an ARC from Literally Yours PR in exchange for an honest review.
