A hometown hero that’s suffering a personal crisis. A single-mom who’s finally back on her feet. And the what-ifs they finally have a chance of seeing come true.
A year after her divorce, Chelsea Lewis spends most of her days working part-time at her cousin’s bakery and hiding veggies in her picky son’s lunches. Then she reconnects with an old friend who helps Chelsea in all the ways she’s forgotten she needs—including romantic ones.
Former football player, DJ Kaiser, is back in his hometown, working as a fireman to serve his community, but after nearly burning down his own house with a barbecue and wrecking the Chief’s truck, his mistakes are stacked against him—until he sets out to ease the stress of Chelsea’s load. Serving her has him feeling like a hero again.
When Chelsea’s ex shows up and begs Chelsea to move closer so his young son doesn’t grow up without his father, Chelsea and DJ have to consider what’s best for Chelsea’s little family, even if that means sacrificing the relationship that has saved them both.
I love Ranee Clark's Playing for Keeps books and characters. I was thrilled that it was DJ's turn for his own book. I loved how DJ's life in Cody wasn't picture perfect. He had some struggles. And sometimes the hits kept on coming. Chelsea had her own trials as well. She was trying to pick up the pieces of her life after her divorce and care for her young son, her way. I loved how she was able to take her healthy meal ideas and turn it into something creative and lucrative. I also appreciated, after some time, Brady took the needed responsibility for his son. The author does a great job with pacing Chelsea and DJ's relationship. It didn't feel rushed or forced. I loved their chemistry.
5 out of 5 stars.
