~SYNOPSIS~
𝓛𝓮𝔁𝓲 𝓙𝓪𝓻𝓿𝓲𝓮
Pie isn’t just a dessert, it’s a way of life. 
Pies, fillings, jams, jellies, honey, they’re all a part of my award-winning business, Firefly Kitchen. After being left behind, by everyone, I was determined to make it all on my own, and I have. I love what I do, I love what I’ve created, and I love who I’ve become. Yes, it’s small, but it’s mine, and nothing or no one can stop me now. Not even Bryan Brennen. He may have returned, but it won’t be long before he leaves. And regardless of which way you slice it, some things can’t be forgotten, no matter how sweet the taste.

Football isn’t just a sport, it’s a way of life.
I’ve spent more years than I can remember chasing my dream. When you come from nothing, it’s even more important to become something. The unstoppable drive and incomparable determination that is ingrained in me has gotten me to where I am now; twenty-eight years old and undoubtedly the best professional quarterback in the league. To be happy is to be perfect. Plans, plays, passes, I’ve mastered them all, but it was never just for me, it was for her, too. Only she doesn’t know it, and now, ten years later, I’m ready to tell her.

 

She’s a small town girl. He’s a household name. 
Off the field and out of the kitchen, will they break and crumble, or finally get their second chance at the biggest game of them all . . . love.

 

 

~READ AN EXCERPT~
Bryan
“How long has it been?” Jack asks as he walks up into our conversation. There’s a fork sticking out of his mouth, and I can’t help but roll my eyes. You would think after how much pie he shoved down his throat yesterday he’d be in sugar shock, but nope, he’s back at it again today. 
Catching my expression, he grins. “What? I can’t help that it’s all so good.” His eyes widen as he spots the two new boxes, and he tips his head. “What kind are those?”
I pick up the boxes and hand them to him. One says grasshopper pie, and the other says cherry.
“Yes! Can I take these home?” he asks, his voice so hopeful.
“Sure, and it’s been a while since I’ve been back—years, in fact,” I answer as I look at Jack. I’m certain my frown relays that it’s been more than just a few years, but only I know that the true answer is never. I’ve never gone back home.
He tucks the boxes under his arm, the sleeve of his clean shirt bunching up. He’s already showered and ready to go.
“I understand.” He nods and then breaks eye contact. “I don’t really have any one place I call home, so I haven’t been anywhere in years either. We moved around a lot with my father’s career, and now they’re retired in Scottsdale. I love the water way too much to think about staying there long-term.”
I agree. I love the water, too, which is why many people were surprised when I bought my house on the river instead of downtown or on the island with my other teammates. The minute I walked out the back door, which faces northwest, I knew it was the one for me. Yes, the river cuts through the city, but the view across from me is undeveloped, wooded, and it makes me feel like I’m not in the city. It’s perfect. 
“What time is the ceremony? Want me to go with you?” Reid asks. I should have known he would offer. He’s loyal and a true friend like that. Not many would give up their day off to drive two hours in the car, stand in the heat, and then drive two hours back.
“It’s at ten, and thanks, but no thanks. I might make a few stops while I’m there.” 
Not a few stops, just one, maybe, but I don’t tell them that. 
Tossing my cleats and helmet into my locker and my dirty clothes into my bag, I grab a towel, wrap it around my waist, and turn to find both Reid and Jack staring at me. It’s like they know tomorrow is more of a big deal than I’m letting on, so I slip into my role as a leader and try to assuage their concerns.
“Don’t worry, boys.” I smile real big and see both of them shift away from the uncertain tension that had set in between them. I throw out my arms and begin walking backward toward the showers. “I’ll be back and on the plane for our game this weekend first thing the following morning.”
If only it were that simple.

descriptiondescriptionSo where do I 🅢🅣🅐🅡🅣 with this one? 👀 First, 𝓚𝓪𝓽𝓱𝓻𝔂𝓷 𝓐𝓷𝓭𝓻𝓮𝔀𝓼 is a new “to me” author, and if you follow my 𝕣𝕖𝕧𝕚𝕖𝕨𝕤 you know I love to try new authors. 🙌 Second, the ¢σνєя of this book is just so ƤƦЄƬƬƳ, and I l♥o♥v♥e me a heroine that bakes. 🍰 With all those things already ɢᴏɪɴɢ ғᴏʀ ɪᴛ there was a high 𝓹𝓻𝓸𝓫𝓪𝓫𝓲𝓵𝓲𝓽𝔂 that this book would be a 🅷🅸🆃 with me. 💕 And…it was. 👍 It came ⓋⒺⓇⓎ close to being a 5 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 story. 
description So onto the 𝖉𝖊𝖙𝖆𝖎𝖑𝖘…it was a 🅕🅐🅝🅣🅐🅢🅣🅘🅒🅐🅛🅛🅨 well-written book. 👍 I loved the 𝓼𝓮𝓽𝓽𝓲𝓷𝓰 with the old house and her pie making business. 🍥 It was ₩ɆⱠⱠ ₱₳₵ɆĐ and the story never dragged. 👌The plot was εηgαgιηg. 🙌 Very s♥w♥e♥e♥t. 🍭 A little h͎e͎a͎r͎t͎b͎r͎e͎a͎k͎i͎n͎g͎ at times. 💔 I am not sure I’d call it a true 𝓼𝓮𝓬𝓸𝓷𝓭 𝓬𝓱𝓪𝓷𝓬𝓮 romance since 🅻🅴🆇🅸 and 🅱🆁🆈🅰🅽 were never officially together. 🙈 Although there were fєєℓιиgѕ there on both sides. 💑 There was no Ø₩ or Ø₥drama. 🎇 Both had been with others during the tєn чєαrѕ αpαrt.👍 However, what a 𝓻𝓮𝓯𝓻𝓮𝓼𝓱𝓲𝓷𝓰 change of pace to have a sports star not be a 🅜🅐🅝🅦🅗🅞🅡🅔 who was out partying every night. 🙌 The 𝕤𝕖𝕩 𝕤𝕔𝕖𝕟𝕖𝕤 were hot, but not erotica hot. 🔥 There was an 𝖎𝖓𝖙𝖊𝖗𝖊𝖘𝖙𝖎𝖓𝖌 cast of secondary characters. 👤👤👤👤 🅱🆁🆈🅰🅽 was a likable hero (mostly) and 🅻🅴🆇🅸 was a likable heroine (mostly). 👫 Last, it was all wrapped up in a sweet ɦαρρყ ƒσ૨ ɳσωเรɦ ending. 💒 I am guessing we’ll see this 𝓬𝓸𝓾𝓹𝓵𝓮 again in the next book since it will feature one of 🅱🆁🆈🅰🅽’🆂 ex teammates. 🏈
description So why not 5 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟? Two 𝓬𝓸𝓷𝓷𝓮𝓬𝓽𝓮𝓭 things really. 🔗 🅱🆁🆈🅰🅽 needed to grovel more. 😔 A lot more…and 🅻🅴🆇🅸 needed to be less of a “mᎪᏒᎽ suᎬ.” 👀 She let both 🅱🆁🆈🅰🅽 and her brother (IMO) treat her badly. 👎 She fell right into 🅱🆁🆈🅰🅽’🆂 arms after ten years of ՏíӀҽղϲҽ AND she was the one that 𝓰𝓸𝓮𝓼 𝓽𝓸 𝓼𝓮𝓮 𝓱𝓲𝓶 after how he treated her near the end. 😒 I needed 🅱🆁🆈🅰🅽 to at least be the one to 🅒🅗🅐🅢🅔 the heroine to get her back the 𝕤𝕖𝕔𝕠𝕟𝕕 time. 🏃 Had that happened then this would have been ą ƈơɱ℘Ɩɛɬɛ ɧıɬ with me. 👍description
