This three-part story reminds us love can be better the second time around. And that it’s not just players in the game…

*~*~* 4 Stars *~*~* 

This is my first book by the author, and it was super cute. I enjoyed the fact that the couple was older and had to face different obstacles throughout their journey.

Joie decides to go back to school after her son is raised and in college. She was always a dedicated mother, but now it’s time for her to live her life. Jack lives and breathes football. After losing his wife, he didn’t think love would ever be an option for him, until he literally ran into Joie. Neither was looking for the other, but both are attracted to each other right away.

Jack and Joie face their own little struggles throughout the book. There are a few angsty moments, but overall this book is cute, quirky, and funny.

Author Bio

Mother, reader, storytellerME Carter never set out to write books. But when a friend practically forced a copy of Twilight into her hands, the love of the written word she had lost as a child was rekindled. With a story always rolling around in her head, it should come as no surprise that she finally started putting them on paper. She lives in Texas with her four children, Mary, Elizabeth, Carter and Bug, who sadly was born long after her pen name was created, and will probably need extensive therapy because of it.
