Takes Two to Tackle

Santa Fe Bobcats

This book was a very nice sports romance. I enjoyed it a lot even though I don't read a lot of sports related stories. This one was a light but entertaining read with relatable characters that were easy to like. Takes Two To Tackle was an engaging read from beginning to end.

I was completely caught up in this story, and that was mostly because I liked Stephen and Mags so much. They started off as friends, even though Mags was his housekeeper, Stephen knew she was the right person to keep him in line and away from the booze. They were a perfect fit because she acted normal around him, so he could confide in her without feeling so vulnerable. I liked their easy relationship and how sweet he was with Mags, and that he wasn’t. Things got a little more complicated with a mutual attraction had them thinking about a more romantic relationship. Now, there was some misunderstandings and insecurities that caused conflict between them, but it was a light drama and easily resolved, and I felt that made it a more pleasant read.

In short, this book was well written. I liked the smooth writing style and nice steady flow. Stephen and Mags were both great characters. Now, I noticed that this book is third in the Sante Fe Bobcats Series. Having just discovered this series, and considering how very much I enjoyed this lovely romance, I will be reading the first two books that I missed.
