It took too long for Dani and Tyson to reunite. During this time I started to lose a little interest, although about four years had passed. I was more interested in them together, than them apart. As far as character development goes, I felt Tyson was really fleshed out. As a reader I felt close to him, as if I could really picture him. I could not really picture Dani. By the end of the book, I was still unsure of her. There were some other supporting characters in the book that added interesting bits to the plot. Overall, this is a good, easy romance read.

Reissued Review: Originally reviewed 5/9/16. Now in mass market paperback.
The New York Times bestselling author of Big Girl Panties is back with a funny, sweet, and sizzling novel about love, redemption, and second chances.
Heartthrob star quarterback Tyson Palmer has it all: a million-dollar arm, a winning season and the promise of a Superbowl ring. But more importantly, football’s biggest star is the ultimate comeback kid. After an addiction to painkillers nearly derailed his career, Tyson got sober and went from zero to hero in the eyes of the public.
But one person remains unconvinced: Dani Carr, a sports commentator with high ratings and following of her own.
Dani can’t forgive Tyson’s transgressions or forget a single passionate night with him back in college. To make things worse, Tyson doesn’t realize that the bombshell with huge ratings is the cute co-ed whose heart he once broke.
But can a sports journalist trying to claw her way to the top and a quarterback who knows all about rock bottom make it to the Super Bowl without destroying each other? And what will happen when Tyson—riding high now that he’s revived his career—realizes he needs to make an even more important comeback with Dani? Can he use his million-dollar moves to get past her defenses—or will she sideline him for good?
