Permanently sidelined by an injury, former NFL quarterback Colton Greene is temporarily hiding out in a friend’s hometown to avoid the media and the reminders of all he’s lost. Maple Valley seems like the perfect place to learn how to adjust to normal life. The only trouble is he’s never really done normal before.
While Kate plays things safe and Colton is all about big risks and grand gestures, they both get what it’s like to desperately need direction in life. An unexpected project gives them both a chance to jumpstart their new lives, but old wounds and new dreams are hard to ignore. Starting over wasn’t part of the plan, but it just might be the best thing that’s ever happened to them. – from Melissa Tagg’s website
I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review.
This delightful inspirational contemporary romance contains likable characters, humor, and heartfelt moments. Kate Walker is tired of writing romance movies and wants to write something more meaningful. Colton Greene is forced to retire from the NFL because of injury and wants to continue his career by staying in the spotlight. Kate and Colton are at a crossroads in their careers and they come together when a tornado ravages Kate’s hometown of Maple Valley and they help to restore the town. Throughout the novel, Kate and Colton struggle with knowing when to let go of a dream and how those dreams change or may be fulfilled in a different way than they thought.
