Carly Lincoln is just months away from claiming her overdue promotion. The plush corner office, the view, the prestige is finally within her grasp. She’s worked her entire life to make her dream, her reality. But when an unexpected boulder blocks her perfectly paved path, Carly is forced to reevaluate her goals.

Bryant Garrity is just months away from another season. Last year, the star quarterback crumbled to a mere mortal on the games biggest stage. The blood. The sweat. The tears. He’s back and ready to return to his spot among the elite. His sole focus is one last shot at glory. But the detour on the road ahead, might cause him to alter his route.

Love isn’t on either of their radars, but Carly and Bryant’s paths are about to collide.

Carly Lincoln is focused on her career. Her goals, her future, and her happiness all revolve around performing well at her job and nabbing the promotion she has been working towards. She didn’t plan on the challenges she finds in her personal life. She didn’t plan on falling in love. She didn’t plan for anything that she finds herself facing.

Bryant Garrity is focused on leading his team to a successful season, following in his father’s footsteps and earning a Superbowl ring. An injury put a twist on his plans, but he is back and ready to finally reach his goals. Unless his goals take a sudden backseat to things that are more important than winning.

I really enjoyed watching as these two met in a beautiful, tropical setting thinking they wouldn’t run into each other ever again, and then finding their worlds collide upon their return home. Even as they hadn’t planned to look for someone special, they found each other and fit into each other’s lives.

There was a moment I thought I had this story figured out, where it would go next. But I was shocked (pleasantly) when my initial prediction was not the case and the story went in a different direction entirely. The new direction gave these two a whole new set of challenges to face both personally and in their careers.

As a new standalone from Michelle Lynn, this book was entertaining, emotional, and contained a little bit of everything. It wasn’t overly dramatic, but had a good level of tension as Carly and Bryant worked to fit their lives together to keep things interesting without going over the top. Everything they faced fit to make this feel realistic while also remaining entertaining and engrossing.

I was gifted a copy in exchange for an honest review.
