Was there ever any doubt this book would be awesome? After the perfection of The Hooker and the Hermit and the blurb I was so excited to dive right into this one and now I am hanging out for the next one after that too brief teaser.

I have to admit that even though I skimmed the blurb and loved the first book it took me a while to remember them both from it and when it all clicked (let’s be honest it was more like when they led me by the hand) who they were and how they were kinda connected I was so incredibly excited to see how it was all going to play out I just couldn’t put the book down.

And damn did it just keep getting better and better as I got further into the book. I love that even though these are sports romance and there is a lot of sexy sportsmen in them as well as several sports references I, who do not like rugby, was able to fall in love with it and not once be taken away from the romance and the characters.

The combination of these two authors is an absolute recipe for gold. And their characters are perfect in all their flaws and they are so realistically written I feel like I could catch up with them for coffee and discuss the weather.
I adored Lucy and her approach to everything was so genuine I couldn’t fault her even when she acted like an idiot or didn’t act how I wanted her to act.

But of course the star of the show was Sean and despite the fact he was a douche man whore I expected to hate and maybe warm up to by the end he had me hooked from the beginning. I loved that we saw his faults in blaring clarity and why he was how he was but he didn’t make excuses or pretend he wasn’t an arsehole he just went with it. And even though he was mortified by his issue he was able to ask for help.

The fact that once he knew how he felt there was no doubt in his mind of what he wanted and he never once wavered or did anything to cast any doubt on it. And despite his douchy reputation he was such a perfect book boyfriend I just want him for myself.

I honestly can’t recommend this series any harder. It has loads of laugh out loud moments, steamy sex scenes, sexual tension and an incredibly well written plot and characters it would be hard to find a better way to spend an arvo.
