Fair Catch by Cindy Roland Anderson

Hello Romantics!

I know I’m a day late this week! However, I promise this book was definitely worth the wait!!!

Fair Catch by Cindy Roland Anderson is a contemporary romance telling the story of Ellie Garrett and Nick Coulter America’s most eligible bachelor and newly retired football player superstar.

Ellie is a single mother who’s cheating ex-husband left her right after she gave birth to their son, Cade. Four years later she definitely has issues trusting men and doesn’t think she is good enough to keep a man around anyway.  Her match making neighbor, Betsy, of course has other plans for her. Especially, when she finds out the identity of their new mysterious neighbor!

Nick had become jaded by his life in the public eye but after an accident took the life of his best friend, Nick realizes just how precious life is and decides to make some personal changes. One of which, is re-dedicating his life to God and making sure that his “star-power” is used to help under privileged kids.

To accomplish these things, Nick decides to move to Colorado and start his non-profit youth camps. Not to long after moving into his new neighborhood he meets his new beautiful blonde neighbor on the nearby running track.

After a lot of persistence, Nick finally persuades the very skittish Ellie to go out with him.  Everything is going along very nicely for the pair when Ellie’s ex-husband, Thomas, pops into the picture trying to make Ellie’s life miserable.  (Why the dude should be jealous is beyond me? I mean he left her, not the other way around! Some men are just crazy.)

Just as Ellie and Nick have decided to overcome the obstacles Thomas tries to throw their way, tragedy strikes! Cade is kidnapped and Thomas blames Nick’s stardom for endangering his son.

Who stole Cade? Will Nick and Ellie ever see him again? Will Thomas always be a thorn in their sides?

You’ll have to read the book to find out!

Great banter, lovely kissing scenes, suspense, drama, and angst. A tiny bit repetitive towards the beginning but still a fun and delightful read. Very likable characters (except Thomas of course!)
