My Review…

Samantha really knows how to write a lovely, happy, romantic and steamy story!

We have been teased with bits about Madison and Richard in the first two books of the Indianapolis Eagles series and now we get the full story!  I have been waiting anxiously for this!

Madison is a career woman, she is a hard as nails sports agent and she works hard to support her clients.  She has had a friendship with Richard (Murph – to his friends and teammates) for YEARS and it has moved to the friends with benefits stage for a while.  But she is looking for more.  She is wanting the whole package, with feelings! And she wants it with Richard.  However, she doesn’t want to lose the fantastic friendship her and Richard have.  What’s a girl to do?  What she doesn’t realize is…

Richard, oh my! I love his vulnerability.  He too wants more from his “friendship” with Madison but doesn’t want to chance losing her.  But when push comes to shove, he rises to the occasion brilliantly and makes sure that Madison knows where she stands with him.

I wanted to shake the both of them for waiting soooo long, but in the end it was worth it!

This is a low angst, lots of love romance, must read, that is classic Samantha! She is really knocking her stories out of the park and is getting better and better with each book she releases!  Well done, Samantha! Well done!!
