About the Author:
Heidi is a New York Times and USA Today Bestselling author.
Originally from the Pacific Northwest, she now lives in picturesque Vermont, with her husband and two daughters. Also renting space in their home is an over-hyper Beagle/Jack Russell, Buttercup and a Highland West/Mini Schnauzer, JiLL and her brother, Racicot.
When she's isn't writing one of the many stories planned for release, you'll find her sitting court-side during either daughter's basketball games
So this was a new author for me and I love sports romance so I said, "Why not?", but now I wish I hadn't.
We start off with the book being from the hero's POV, which I found out was like this through the whole book. I felt disconnected from the heroine Daisy because we never get to see things from her side.
Ethan and Daisy become friends first because Daisy seems very shy, but they eventually start fooling around and are then officially dating. Everything is not all sunshine and rainbows forever though, and Ethan completely gives up on them, despite the fact that he was falling in love with her. I wanted to stop reading not long after that because he flies home to see his family and then he ends up doing something with his ex that is a hard limit for me. It might not bother every reader, but it was a big no for this reviewer.
Ethan realizes that he and Daisy really should be together, though, but then he finds out a secret of Daisy's that almost makes him change his mind. They do work things out and get their HEA, which was the silver lining for me.
This was not a safe read for me and it won't be for everyone, but that is just my opinion and you might really love this book, so don't take what I says too much to heart.
