This was an entertaining story and it gripped my attention from the beginning. It is part of a series but you can read it as a stand alone.
The narrator did a good job bringing the story to life.
Chris was really an immature guy. Specially for how old he was. He acted more like a high schooler than a NFL player. The story also jumped from when they met to about 5 years later.
Natalie was unusually dependent on her father. He was pretty controlling and judgmental. I was shocked at what he did to her. Lying about Chris was so wrong regardless of his intentions.
The story concludes with a HEA which is my type of conclusion! No Cliffhangers here.

Chris Taylor has been released by his professional football team in Florida because of his less than desirable behavior. He has been picked up by team in California, the Tigers, in sort of a probationary position. As he is used to being the star quarterback of the team – this does not sit well with him. But, as the author pointed out, as a professional football player he needs to buck up and remember that his life is an open book to the team, the coaches and the public.
Chris decides to look up his football hero and instead meets his 22-year-old daughter, Natalie.
Russell Boyd is very overprotective of his daughter, especially around the likes of such a reprobate as Chris Taylor. When Mr. Boyd finds out that Natalie and Chris have been sneaking around he lets Chris know that in no uncertain terms he will ruin his football career if he ever sees our contacts Natalie again. Natalie only knows that after a special – to her – night he stops contacting her altogether.
There are couple of twists that I could allude to but I feel that would spoil. They came out of nowhere, for me which is unusual (I can usually see them coming from a mile away) I hope that they surprise other listeners as well.
I usually enjoy Aundrea Mitchell's performances. It really makes it hard to write the following bit of negative feedback. This was the wrong narrator for this book – it sounds like she has a Canadian accent and this is about American football. .
I thoroughly enjoyed this book and would have given it five stars across the board but for the unfortunate choice of the narrator.

I am not always keen on sports romances but I was impressed with this one. It is a well known fact that young men do not want to settle down. Another well known fact is that fathers having sown plenty of wild oats themselves shudder in horror when their daughter's start dating. If you take an innocent girl and add a baseball player you are going to get an earthquake of major proportions. In this story a father breaks up his daughter's relationship instead of letting it run its natural course. How everything finally works out makes a very good book that I enjoyed listening to very much. Well written and beautifully read, well worth reading.
