*Standalone enemies to lovers football romance* Going deep: In football it means running down the field for a long pass. You’re serious. Committed. Unstoppable. As a wide receiver, it’s a term I’m all too familiar with. It’s who I am, at least when it comes to my career. For the past decade, football has been the only thing I’ve allowed myself to commit to. That is until a beautiful, blue-eyed temptress steps into my limo to escort me to a charity function. She’s strong, independent, and quick witted. Everything I want in a woman. There’s just one problem. She’s not mine for the taking. But that’s not going to stop me from winning her heart. I’m in deep with this woman. I’m running down the field with my arms and heart open, ready for the catch. Now all I need is for her to throw the ball.

My heart is melting!

So many moments that stole my heart. Their fears Their love Their strength “When you can’t look on the bright side, I will sit with you in the dark,” It was all just on point. Also have me a new appreciation for Alice in Wonderland.


Such a beautiful story. This book was all that I hoped it would be. There were ups and downs. Happiness and sadness, and just an overall, heart felt read that deals with deep emotions. I loved seeing both Giselle and Killian overcome their pasts. They both had deep seated issues that stem from what they have went through and it really changed who they were as people. But they were able to work together and overcome them. I loved the snarky comments between them at the start and seeing them evolve in their relationship and as people. I can’t wait to see what is to come next in this series. 5 stars #2OCCJD


Giselle and Killian make a good story. Giselle has had a tough life, having to support her mentally ill mother and put her sister through college. So to stay afloat she works the evenings as an escort. She’s living with best friend Olivia and her baby Reed in New York. Killian is the hot NFL player, and best friend of Nick. Then there’s Nick and Olivia who are engaged. It’s an interesting story and an enjoyable read.


Wow. And I mean WOW.

Going in to this, I felt like I had to reread The Pickup just to remember certain scenes and whatnot. And I’m glad I did. I picked up (haha) in subtle things that I feel gave me a little more insight to Killian. He’s such a great character and while Giselle herself is relatable, sometimes it seemed as though they were both too “broken” to even try and be good for each other. But of course they weren’t. I just loved their story so much! I think more so than Nick and Olivia’s story. Definitely worth another read.
