She's given up on him and moved on... Susannah finally has a peaceful, calm life and a no-surprises man. Marriage to football superstar Ryan Sanderson was a whirlwind of passion, heat, energy, and excitement, but Susannah got sick of playing second fiddle to his team, watching women throwing themselves at him, and living in terror of the hard hits he took on the field. With their divorce just days from being final, she's already planning a wedding with her new fiance... He's finally figured out what's really important to him. If only it's not too late... Ryan has just ten days to convince his soon-to-be ex-wife to give him a second chance. He has just brought home his third championship and his career is at its pinnacle, but during the year of their separation, Ryan's come to realize it doesn't mean anything at all without Susannah...
Marie Force delivers a compelling tale of love and second chances in Line of Scrimmage.
I loved this contemporary romance with a dash of romantic suspense. The story follows a big star (and smexy) quarterback, Ryan Sanderson, and his journey to winning his wife, Susannah, back.
Line of Scrimmage was very moving and heart breaking; with the ups and downs of marriage, the darker side of stardom and the devastating loss of a child and the affect that can have on a relationship. I was drawn in from the first page and enjoyed every minute of it. The situations were realistic and the story very well written. This is my second read from author Marie Force and if what I’ve read so far is any indication of her talent then I will be picking up many more of her titles! My only wish is that the story was longer!
