It’s showtime.
After twelve years in the league, all Zach Murphy wants is a Super Bowl ring. He’s been about hard hits not smooth manners, about breaking quarterbacks not making small talk at cocktail parties. But now he’s shattered something else. After dumping a tray of drinks on the team owner’s snooty daughter and accidentally feeling up the Governor’s wife, his tenure with his team looks perilously short. And things are getting worse.
Life is looking up for Kelsie Carrington-Richmond. A onetime beauty pageant star and mean girl, she only recently stopped living out of her car. But those times have passed. Her finishing school for real men has a real shot, and the Seattle Lumberjacks have hired her to polish their roughest player.
Except…it’s Zach. Long ago she broke his heart. He’s just the beast she remembers—gruff, protective—but she’s nothing like the beauty from his past. Yet, getting knocked down happens, and getting back up makes a contender. And they both have the hearts of champions.


I really enjoyed this book….I’m in Texas so that was a nice reference that I could relate to in the storyline!  I liked that mean girl in high school was trying to redeem herself with the one person she hurt the most.  But her life wasn’t a bowl of cherries either and both Zach and Kelsie do a lot of growing up in this book and realizing that the past is the past and it can just make you a better person.
This is the third book in the series and while it isn’t dependent on the first two, it would be nice to go back and read those and see how those Lumberjack men are tamed.
