Sometimes there’s no escaping Destiny…
When Miami Thunder star receiver Jax Elliot fell in love with Destiny Duncan, it felt right. He didn’t care that she was a trainer for the Thunder’s biggest rivals. Didn’t care about his boss or hers, didn’t care what the fans or the media thought. Destiny was the best thing to ever happen to him—until he started dropping the ball. Literally. And he was forced to make a choice. The woman he loved. Or the game he loved.
He chose poorly.
Months later, in need of a trainer he can trust, Jax turns to the woman he still wants above all others. Things quickly turn physical—the sex between them more explosive than ever—and the physical quickly becomes emotional. One thing hasn’t changed: Jax and Des are still deeply in love. But something else remains the same as well. He still can’t catch a damn ball with Destiny in his head.
It’ll take a Dare—or three—to help Jax understand it’s not about catching every ball…it’s about knowing that the woman he loves will always be there to catch him.
Love, love, loved it!! Another book to add to the already large stack of fabulous books by Erin Nicholas. I have read all of the books in the Dare to Love series, but it is important to note that you do not have to read them to enjoy any of these books in the Kindle Worlds spin-off of the series. It is fun to see characters play a part in these books though. There are several characters from Carly’s books visiting in this book and I loved it! It always amazes me that Erin can make me so attached to the characters in such a short amount of time, but she does all that and more with this book. Jax and Destiny started off a bit rocky for me when she insists that he treat her like he does all the women in his life since her. She tells him to shower her with gifts and extravagant things in an attempt to guard her heart from him. Of course her plan fails, but they are both worried about what will happen when it’s time for him to start the season. Their past didn’t have a pleasant ending so I was really hoping things would work out better for them this time. Of course Erin would never leave us without a happy ending, but I was very worried about Jax’s game play and what would happen if he had to choose again. I’ll let you find out for yourself what happens. Make sure to set aside enough time to read this in one sitting because I guarantee you won’t be putting it down until the very end!
