A stoic force to be reckoned with.
The steady rock on which England is destined to lean.
Everyone’s reliable mate, at the ready to defend when called upon.
To the world, Vance Morley is the next great keeper for the Rogue Football Club, biding his time at the academy. The definition of tall, dark and handsome, his quiet confidence and mysterious persona only draw the public in. He’s their mighty anchor, both on and off the pitch.
But when it comes to the one woman he claims to love, he conveniently vanishes at the exact moment I need him. The first time I saw Vance, he was a ten-year-old standing on his lawn across the street. The first time he kissed me, we were sixteen and sitting on the very shores we grew up on. We crashed into each other like waves in a storm, fated to destroy everything in our paths. Including each other.
The first time Vance saw our son, by serendipitous accident, my little boy had already lived the first year of his life. And instantly, the man who chose football over me wants to have it all. There is no way I can trust his declarations of love and fatherhood, especially when I’m set to marry another man.
We’re a new game, one to occupy him until the world stage beckons. But the more I try to tell myself he’s not the one, the more Vance’s efforts to win us back increase.
How can I guard my heart against seeing my son with his father?
Can Vance really sacrifice his dreams in the name of love and family?
Is there a way that everyone else’s safe harbor can finally become mine too?
I received an advanced copy of this book with the promise of an honest review.
Second chance romance combined with a secret baby? Yes please! The author teased us at the end of the previous book and I couldn't wait to read this one.
I just loved Lara and Vance. When they were young, their relationship was complicated and now that they are bit older, it is even more complicated. All Lara wants in her life is stability and being in a relationship with Vance is anything but stable. But on the flip side, Vance is frustrated with the lack of movement in his career and is starting to wonder if being a footballer is what he wants.
I loved watching Lara and Vance rekindle their relationship. It was never a matter of them not loving each other, so once they were able to get over the past, the relationship part was quite easy. But this time around Vance had to figure out how to be a father as well. And to be honest, he fell into that role quite easily. I found myself smiling because it was just so adorable.
And I just say that I loved the friendship between Vance, Jude & Kingston. Whenever they get together they manage to cause some kind of trouble, but they are also there for each other and act each other's conscious. If one has a problem, the other two are more than happy to help. I'm actually a little sad that this is the last book in this series. I'll miss these guys!
