Such an adorable read! This is sweet with a touch of sexiness, pairing an injured rugby player with a single mom and her outgoing son. It’s a feel good romance with low angst and plenty of sexual tension, and I loved this hero. He’s a man who has been in the spotlight but craves the connection he’s found with this little family, and the whole story is downright cute. I don’t read third person often but Andrews does it well, and this one was nearly a 5-star read for me. There are a couple of spots that felt a little slow, but nothing holding me back from enjoying this sweet romance.
The story follows Cole, an Australian rugby player who has been sidelined from the game following a career-ending injury. He’s not quite sure what to do with himself, so he’s decided to spend some time in America and stay at the empty home of a friend. Or at least, the home was SUPPOSED to be empty. After an extremely memorable meet cute, Cole finds himself sharing a home with single mom Jane and her young son. While it’s not the arrangement that any of them expected, Cole quickly settles into a very different kind of life, even going so far as to take on the role of “manny.” But Cole’s stay was always supposed to be temporary, and starting up a long distance relationship isn’t in his plans.
I liked this quite a bit. It always takes me a little while to settle into a third person romance, so the start was kinda slow for me. But once I got to know these characters (especially Cole) better, I really started to enjoy it. There’s something so sexy about a man who could live a lavish lifestyle but chooses not to, and his growing feelings were the best part of the story. Jane got on my nerves a few times, but I also understood where she was coming from, so it didn’t detract from the romance. There are some adorable scenes with Cole and Jane’s son, which will melt your heart. And there are also a few steamy scenes that will heat up your Kindle. This one’s a mix of several different moods, ultimately feeling like a heartwarming, feel good read. I received an early copy via Grey’s Promotions and am voluntarily leaving a review of this sweet romance.
From pro rugby player to…Manny?
Australian rugby pro Cole Hauser has had enough of speculations about his future post-injury. So when a football buddy puts his house in America at Cole’s disposal, he jumps at the chance for some peace and anonymity. The plan is perfect–until he discovers he’s roomies with a woman who knows how to wield a nail gun and her kid. Awesome. Not.
Single mom Jane Spencer is supposed to be spending four weeks alone in the wilds of Colorado rehabbing a house that’ll put her business on the map. Instead, her time is overrun by her four-year-old and a grumpy, too-sexy rugby dude whose only goals are to watch ESPN and brood. Awesome. Not.
When, surprisingly, McHottie offers to get his ass off the couch and help Jane out with Finn, she’s hesitant. But before she knows it, Cole is knee-deep in kid activities during the day and they’re both fighting their simmering attraction at night.
Anything between them can only be temporary – their time together is short and Cole lives on the other side of the planet. It should be easy to say goodbye, right? Wrong. It doesn’t take long for them to realize they’ve borrowed a whole lot of trouble.
But trouble never felt this good.
