After the Fire is a Contemporary Sports Romance with a sexy quarterback, a girl from the past and decisions that changed their lives.
It’s the third book in Mary’s One Pass Away series but all books can be read as a standalone. Recommended for readers over 18 years old.
My Four Star review:
After the Fire is the first book I’ve read by Mary J Williams and I’m looking forward to reading the other novels in this series.
Gaige Benson stole my heart in the very first chapter. At the age of 13 he found a football and taught himself how to throw it. Kids from Brooklyn didn’t dream of big and better but things changed for Gaige after he sent a football sailing into a strangers hands. From that day forward football meant everything to Gaige. He played in high school, got a full football scholarship to Yale and was the first pick in the NFL draft. Things were right on track for this talented, smart, good looking young man.
Violet Reed has dreams of her own and the big one is becoming a doctor. A chance meeting sends the ball sailing in this very well written story. It’s full of emotion, laughs, friendship, football and of course love.
If you enjoy a nice “second chance love” kind of story, then definitely pick up this book.
