Synopsis: Two season tickets.
One genius idea.
Zero interest in a relationship.
The plan is simple: a brand new, hot, preferably funny, definitely single male will fill one of those seats for every Bears game at Soldier Field. And I’ll fill the other.
I can’t think of a better way to use the season passes I’d bought for my ex-husband. I am a woman of plans, and this one’s foolproof.
Until Zach Bowen offers to be my practice round.
He’s infuriating. Presumptuous and overbearing. And absolutely, undeniably gorgeous. Any woman with a heartbeat would be attracted to him, and mine picks up speed every time he speaks.
But as I said, I’m a woman of plans — and I’m not backing down on this one.
One night. One game. And then, his time’s up.
He can try to change the rules, but here’s the truth: he can’t win if he’s playing the wrong game.
Review: I did not know about the author at all, but the synopsis immediately attracted me. I did not resist for long and I must say that I was delighted!
Gemma has not had an easy life lately. She discovered that her husband, whom she loved more than anything, has cheated on her, and when she finally decided to confront him, he told her that he had terminal cancer. So yes, she stayed for him, never saying him anything, and she let him make it seem like everything was fine between them. Now that he’s gone, she has to re-learn to live.
Our heroine is addicted to lists, it’s something that she can not get rid of and it’s very important for her to keep it to the end. So when she finds herself with a subscription for Bears games, she decides with her best friend to choose a different man each time to accompany her. This is how she meets Zack, a bartender who seems different, who does not want to stop at just one date, but these are not the rules.
I really had a great time with this novel. It was touching to see what the two characters had gone through. If Zack is determined, it’s hard to see what he’s going through because of Gemma and yet it’s so easy to understand, to see how much she’s been hurt. We understand perfectly that she is afraid and that she does not want to start a relationship after all that. But how to resist Zack? Fiou Zack is just … everything! He is handsome, charming, attentive and above all he assumes his feelings. He knows that Gemma is in a complicated situation and yet he is intrigued even if things will not be so simple.
I had a very good time and I am delighted to have discovered the author because now I can not wait to read something else from her!
