What Worked For Me:
I have never read a book by L.P. Dover but I can assure you, Catching Summer will not be the last! This book was raw and beautiful perfection! Summer, our heroine, has suffered the devastating loss of her husband and is finally healing and moving on with her life. Enter Evan, the brother of one of her friends. Evan is the crème de la crème of heroes. He’s charming, sexy, classy, and completely protective of Summer. He wants her, but more, he wants her healed and happy before he wants her in his bed. He is so gentle and kind with her, I positively swooned every time they were in a scene together! When Summer finally decides she is ready to accept love into her life, and move forward with Evan….WOW!!! These two have some amazing chemistry. It was freaking amazing! But, nothing is ever simple or easy in life and love and there is a complete douchebag of a bad guy working behind the scenes to railroad Summer and Evan, and keep Summer for himself. I was floored when I caught on to who it was. This author is a genius at writing some wickedly evil people. Not only do we have a super bad guy, we’ve got a completely trashy bimbo cheerleader who disgusts me to no end at something she pulls and an equally snot nosed punk of a teammate of Evan’s who proves that not every teammate has your back. These people, however, pulled this book together superbly because we get to see the depth and strength of the bond between Evan and Summer from the beginning as all these forces do what they can to tear them apart. I loved the plot as it was fast paced and easy to follow. The secondary characters are fun and bring a strong sense of family to the book. There simply wasn’t any part of this book I didn’t like and it was one of the most spectacular second chance romance books I have ever had the pleasure of reading.
What Didn’t Work For Me:
The book was flawless
Would I Recommend This Book:
Yes…especially to fans of sports romance and second chance at love romances.
