The smolder turns red hot of course. Amanda Shaw has pulled it together. It’s taken a couple of years, a boatload of hard work, and a ton of self-discipline, but she finally has her problems in a headlock. Her yoga studio in the city has become so successful she’s opening one near the beach, and her relationship with her ten year old son is improving every day. The last thing she needs is a monkey wrench thrown into her smoothly running life. Grant Hendricks is one big monkey wrench. The four time Defensive Player of the Year, three time NFL sack leader, and all around football god has officially hit rock bottom. A devastating back injury means he may have to retire and that scares him more than doctors telling him the next hit could leave him paralyzed. All he needs is a quiet place to think and his teammate’s beach house sounds like just the place. Problem is, the woman already living there. You know the drill, folks. This book is chock full of naughty words and steamy moments. Not for delicate sensibilities and anyone under 18.

I love the build up, it's slow and felt so realistic.I like the slow burn, there was some intense moments between them.Also the secondary characters brought a lot to the story. Overall, it was an amazing story.I can't choose which boy is my favorite in this series! Each one have something to give you! But I can say Grant is so salon worthy!!

To go on the journey with these two characters, along with Sam and Roxy, was simply breathtaking at times. I was swept away with this story, couldn’t wait to get to the end to finally put out the burning in my heart. Hands down a book I recommend to you romance readers that love a good frenemies to lovers book with a super sweet HEA.

I was about 80% sure I would DNF it. Just like it happened with dozens of romance books before this one. I've become a very difficult reader to please. So difficult that I stopped reading plain romance a few months ago. Too shallow, too repetitive, too eye-roll inducing... I hope I'm cured of this horrible reader's disease now. If not, at least now I know P. Dangelico is an author to go to when I'm in a mood for fun romance.

This has everything you could ever want in a P. Dangelico novel, a cute kid called Sam, a daft dog called Roxy a former model, former alcoholic, single mom called Amanda and a huge, beautiful, grumpy, permanently naked, injured football player called Grant. Amanda and her best friend own a yoga studio in New York which is a raging success with the wealthy elite, they want to capitalise on their success by opening a second studio in the Hamptons during the summer, when all their customers move out to their summer homes. Amanda and Sam have moved into her big brother Calvin's (from Wrecking Ball) home in the Hamptons while she supervises the construction work and opens the studio. What Amanda doesn't know is that Cal has let his team mate Grant Hendricks stay at his home in the Hamptons while he recovers from spinal surgery. Sharing a 10 bedroom house shouldn't be a problem, right? If only Grant could remember to wear clothes - Amanda reckons she's seem more of his body than anyone other than,maybe, his proctologist and she doesn't want her 10 year old son to be exposed (pun intended) to random male nudity, even if it is one of the most luscious bodies she has ever seen. This had everything you could ever want from a romance, it's funny, it's sweet, it's full of sexy guys (well one incredibly sexy guy - so sexy there's no room for any more), it has a cute kid and a cute dog, there's action, drama and a little bit of angst. I loved it. I received a free copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in return for an honest review. Bumped for release.

    I’ve fallen in love all over again with P. Dangelico and her writing. She has a knack for brooding and grumpy men and let me tell ya all that Grant is just that. To begin with. Amanda slowly strips of his armor with her good heart and spunky personality and reveals that Grant also embodies a heart. He’s an amazing and gentle soul with so much heart and goodness but he doubts himself because of his rough childhood.

Amanda slowly strips of his armor with her good heart and spunky personality and reveals that Grant also embodies a heart. He’s an amazing and gentle soul with so much heart and goodness but he doubts himself because of his rough childhood. Amanda and her son Sam was introduced in Wrecking Ball and it was good to be back with the Shaw family. Amanda is a fabulous heroine. She’s made mistakes in the past in particular with her son and now she’s trying to rectify that. It doesn’t start of the best way thanks to Grant. Their first meeting is quite memorable. The humor is right up my alley. The author knows the right balance between awkward and hilarious. So many awesome quotes and laugh out loud scenes. Grant wooed me properly despite his grumpy ass. Man, he’s got a way with words and how he chose to show it melted my heart. Bulldozer is a slow burn but what wonderful slow burn was because I was constantly intrigued and invested in Amanda and Grant. What started as enemies slowly and beautifully evolved to friendship and then more. At the perfect pace. Calvin and Camilla appears and of course I was smiling like crazy. Cal still a man of few words but oh so infatuated with his woman. They’re the perfect support for Amanda and shows up no matter what. What can I say? Bulldozer bulldozed into my heart as did a certain dog named Roxy. 4 Klutzy Knight Stars I received an ARC

    “I’ve made mistakes, more than my share. But Grant? He’s the right to all my wrongs.” Bulldozer is my second book by P. Dangelico and I am absolutely loving her writing and the characters she creates. I have to go back and read some of her back catalogue because if they are half as good as Bulldozer, then I know I am in for a treat. This story was just the perfect amount of fun, sexy feels and slow burning romance to keep me captivated throughout. The first meeting between Amanda and Grant wa “I’ve made mistakes, more than my share. But Grant? He’s the right to all my wrongs.” Bulldozer is my second book by P. Dangelico and I am absolutely loving her writing and the characters she creates. I have to go back and read some of her back catalogue because if they are half as good as Bulldozer, then I know I am in for a treat. This story was just the perfect amount of fun, sexy feels and slow burning romance to keep me captivated throughout. The first meeting between Amanda and Grant was probably one of the most memorable and hilarious first meetings I can recall reading in recent times. It was just written impeccably with the perfect combination of awkwardness and laugh out loud humor. Amanda is such a sweetheart and cares a lot for her son Sam. She has made some mistakes in her life, but she owned up to them and is making an effort to better her life for her son. She has no idea what is install for her when she meets grumpy NFL star Grant Hendricks. A career ending injury has wounded Grant deeper than anything else in his life. The thought of not playing football again scares him to death and as a result, has become super grumpy and has built up a massive metaphorical fortress to shield himself from the world. Little does he know Amanda is the one woman who can break down those walls he’s built up and reveal the beautiful man inside. One of the things I loved most about Bulldozer was the slow build up and development of Amanda and Grant and the anticipation of their fiery relationship turning into something quite remarkable and intense. I tend to love my enemies to lovers stories to be jam packed full of angst which adds to the anticipation and I love nothing more than the push and pull that comes along with this trope. Even though Bulldozer was low on the angst, I still enjoyed it all the same and highly recommend.

So, yes – this is the third book in a series, but I had no problem jumping right in and Ms. Dangelico had no problem hooking me immediately, grabbing hold of my heart and not letting go until the very last page. This delicious slow burn was snappy and smart and wonderfully emotional. Grant and Amanda were all charged chemistry and compelling dialogue. I adored her acerbic wit, and his soft underbelly under all that prickly outer shell. Add in a precocious ten year old and an adorable rescue dog and this thing was basically the whole package for me. I was completely smitten. This book was such a happy surprise for me. I was glued to the pages – giggling, sniffling, and swooning like crazy. As far as sports romances go? Bulldozer was tops – and I will absolutely be back for more from this author! ~ Shelly, 4.5 Stars

    It's what you've come to expect from P. Dangelico. Some kind of misanderstanding at the beginning, friendship after the characters got to know each other, then love with the sweetness and angst that comes with it.

Also, a few things didn't make sense. They didn't even have a decent conversation yet and he is telling her 'he trust her' and 'he would do anything for her', we need some character development to believe that. His rudeness at the beginning didn't make sense either. Nor her giving him an advise about his life when they just met. There's personal boundaries decent people should respect, even in fiction. Her reaction to a secret he was keeping made her sound so self-centered. It's not about you woman, it's about him. Where's your love if the first thing you thought about is yourself. His putting everything at stake, for a game he didn't even try enough to recover properly so he can come back to it, was also strange. Anyway, the book was ok. I can see that even with the issues I had and my lack of connection with the MCs.

(ARC provided by publisher via Netgalley) -Sometimes all it takes is someone that knows and loves you to shine a light on the truth, to make you see that you’re capable of more than you think you are. -Love isn’t finite. There’s no measure to it. It stretches time and space, loops back around, and expands again. Real love, the selfless kind, transcends our own needs but doesn’t leave us poorer, with less, it enriches is in ways we can’t even quantify... beyond our wildest dreams. Amanda Shaw is a single mom living in New York. She was the poster child for bad choices in her 20’s, and now all she wants to do is focus on her son and be a great mom. They are headed to her brother Cal’s beach house in the Hamptons for the summer while she gets her newest yoga studio up and running. She has everything planned out, and then she arrives at the house to find what she believes to be an intruder. There is a gorgeous mountain of a man she thinks is trespassing, but is actually her brother’s teammate. Grant Hendricks is one of the most well known defensive players in the NFL. He plays for the NY team, the Titans, but he’s injured and facing possible retirement. He’s hit rock bottom and is wanting some time alone to think and get himself together out of the public eye. He’s recovering from surgery and his teammate is letting him stay at his beach house for as long as he needs to. Then unexpected guests arrive and ruin his peace and quiet. Grant and Mandy quickly realize they are going to be roommates for the summer. They figure the house has enough space so hopefully they can just avoid each other, but that’s easier said than done. Even though the very large, big blond man in their house is ornery, he’s the sexiest guy Mandy has ever seen. The ill mannered giant looks like a Nordic God, but his sparkling personality could use some work. She needs to spend her time focusing on opening her studio on time, but with all the hot man on display she can’t seem to focus on anything but Grant. He’s become the shining star of all her filthy dreams. Then she begins to see a different side of him. There’s more to him than what’s on the surface. As a friendship forms they begin to both hunger for more. Their love/hate relationship transforms but they both have demons from their past to overcome. Mandy had long ago stopped believing men like Grant really existed, but could he be her happy ending? -You know that ah-ha moment you get when two pieces of a jigsaw puzzle snap together? When you know you’ve finally aced something. That’s what kissing Grant feels like. I’ve made mistakes, more than my share. But Grant? He’s the right to all my wrongs. -I don’t know what I did to deserve him- what stars got crossed for Life to lead me here- but I’m not gong to second guess it this time. -“I want you,” I say breathless. “You’re all I want. I never let myself want anything. But I want you.” -I know this man. I know the fabric his soul is made of. -I never knew romantic love could feel like this. He’s essential to my joy. And so much more dangerous to my welfare than I had originally thought. Bulldozer is book three in the Hard to Love series, and can be read as a stand-alone. This was my first book by P. Dangelico, and I absolutely love her writing, and can’t wait to read more of her books! This story was hilarious and I adored this sweet football star. His beautiful heart will completely slay you. He’s dreamy book boyfriend perfection!!! ❤️ ***NOW AVAILABLE*** https://amzn.to/2PR8SKv

Both are incapable of accepting love, they don't feel like they deserve it - but it was lovely to watch the walls break down and see them finally accept that they were two broken people who had hearts of gold and lots of love to give each other. This story felt very different from the rest of Dangelico's backlist, but I enjoyed it all the same. The lack of angst and drama was a welcome change, but I would like to see some of that back in force again in the future. ARC gratefully received

Kid: He said that his dad's ex-girlfriend yelled at him because he doesn't eat pussy. Mom: You are never ever going to play with Jeremy ever again. Kid: But I like Jeremy. Mom. Never again.

This was the perfect blend of sexy, funny and swoon worthy feels! This is the 3rd book in the Hard to Love series but can be read as a complete standalone. This is Amanda's story. She is the sister of Cal from Wrecking Ball. Let me just start off by saying this is probably the funniest book I've read from P. Dangelico. She really stepped up the humor element in this one. The scene where our hero and heroine first meet is seriously LOL epic and it justs gets better and better as the book goes on. I could not get enough! So what can I say about Grant? Let's just say he definitely has issues and his first impression is that of a silent, brooding hero with a serious jerk complex. However, we'll excuse all that because WOW is he sexy! The sex appeal of this man leaps off the pages in every way and yes, drooling while reading is a thing. You will be happy to know our hero has an aversion to wearing clothes and as a well honed football player, he was quite comfortable in his skin. This man as it turns out is also kind, romantic and compassionate. Watching him interact with Amanda's son totally pulled on my heartstrings and seeing this giant of a man turn sweet and loving with Amanda just about melted my poor heart. Amanda is a woman who has come a long way. She's made some mistakes in her past but she's turned her life around to make a better life for her son. I loved her sarcastic, witty humor! She was a kickass heroine with a fiery personality who would take nothing less than the best for herself or her son. She demanded that if Grant wanted to be in their lives, he would have to step it up and be all in or not at all. Grant and Amanda have to work through some issues before they find their HEA but this is very low angst. If you're looking for a sexy, hilarious read with all around good feels then this one is for you! 4.5 Stars Contemporary Sports Romance Heat Level: Moderate POV: Heroine HEA Follow me for your next comfort read!

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Loved Mandy, Grant and Sam! Grant was initially a closed book, being quite aggravating and walking around in the nude! Mandy has been through a lot but had turned her life around and was doing all she could for her and her son. She couldn’t deny her attraction to Grant and eventually they get it together, not without a few tribulations along the way. This was another slow burn romance with great heart and humour. Loved the epilogue!

It’s the build up, the anticipation, the foreplay, that makes the actual act so amazing! That’s what happens when reading P. Dangelico’s books. When the main characters finally get together, I get so freaking excited. It’s not the destination, it’s the journey. Slow-burn romance is my favorite, and I feel the key is in 1st person single POV narration. The heroine doesn’t know what the hero is thinking or feeling. And neither does the reader. When she starts lusting and falling in love, she has no idea the hero feels the same way. So when he finally reveals that he has feelings for her, it’s like BAM! If we, the reader, knows how he feels, we don’t get to feel that same uncertainty and build-up either. I like to be kept in the dark along with the heroine. Otherwise, it’s no fun. It takes me back to my single days and dating. I’ve been with the same man for 16 years, so I get that anticipation and build-up by living vicariously through my books. This well written book is sexy, lighthearted and incredibly funny. P. Dangelico’s quick wit shines through. Her stories are among the only ones I want to re-read. Can’t wait for her next work.

    “You make me want to try.” “Try what?” “Be a better man for you.” This was our second book by P Dangelico, and once again, we fell in love with her characters with this enemies to lovers having the hallmarks we love in a slow burn romance. This author delivers romance with passion, fun, swoon, and emotion and we just devour it! ‘Love isn’t finite. There’s no measure to it. It stretches time and space, loops back around, and expands again. Real love, the selfless kind, transcends our own needs but “You make me want to try.” “Try what?” “Be a better man for you.” This was our second book by P Dangelico, and once again, we fell in love with her characters with this enemies to lovers having the hallmarks we love in a slow burn romance. This author delivers romance with passion, fun, swoon, and emotion and we just devour it! ‘Love isn’t finite. There’s no measure to it. It stretches time and space, loops back around, and expands again. Real love, the selfless kind, transcends our own needs but doesn’t leave us poorer…’ Sadly, we hadn’t met Amanda Shaw and her sweet son Sam in Wrecking Ball (Her brother Cal’s book – Hard to Love #1), and although it didn’t impede on our enjoyment of Bulldozer, it did make us curious to know more about her and Cal relationship, plus a little more of Amanda’s past. Thirty-three-year-old Amanda Shaw is a single Mum to the sweet 10-year-old Sam. Amanda is a reformed alcoholic, sober for three years, and there’s not a day she doesn’t berate herself for her past choices and actions, nor a moment she doesn’t feel guilt over her parenting. Amanda really should be a little more forgiving of herself because she’s a caring, nurturing and wonderful Mum. ‘Time: The most powerful force in the universe. Some people believe it’s love, but I disagree. Love can be steered, stalled, silenced. Not time. Time doesn’t give a fuck about anything other than itself. Time will roll right over love and march on without missing a beat. ‘ Amanda is about to expand her successful Manhattan Yoga business, The Bend business by opening a branch in the Hamptons over summer. Unable to afford the rent for the duration, her brother and his wife offer their house to her, and it’s just what Amanda needs. A bit of an escape with Sam until he goes to spend time with his father who has been absent for most of Sam’s life. Amanda has a lot on her plate so she’s looking forward to the peace and quite the house in the Hamptons promises. However, what Amanda didn’t count on her brother also offering up his house to his teammate Grant Hendricks. The grouchy cantankerous star of the Titans NFL team who is recovering from a back injury. Amanda’s first impression of Grant isn’t the best – especially when he fronts up wearing nothing but a pair of pink heart shaped sunglasses and nothing else…not a stitch! And so, the story begins. Although Grant is grumpy towards Amanda, and they’re constantly at loggerheads, he’s as soft as a kitten to Sam and their dog Roxy. There’s a heart underneath all that brawn somewhere, and finding it beneath the snarky banter, and the arsy behaviour is a joy to see. He really is naughty boy innocence wrapped up in one tall, fit and sexy package! Both Amanda and Grant come from broken homes, are products of their upbringings, and have demons from their past to work through, both carry a mountain of guilt on their shoulders. Can these two people, untrusting of themselves, open their hearts enough to trust one another? “Did you wish for me?” “No. But only because I stopped believing men as good as you existed.” A sweet, sexy and fun read with sexual tension aplenty! The moments between Sam and his ‘dude-bro’ – Grant MELTED us. The Mum and son situations were heart-warming and funny. OMG! What Sam put his Mum through had us in fits of giggles at times. There’s a scene in the supermarket that’s every parent’s most embarrassing nightmare – oh the humiliation. This story was pure enjoyment.

Hey that is my prerogativ Let's start this off with I LOVE THIS BOOK so there is no confusion because honestly I will ramble SO be prepared and warned! This slow burn enemies to lovers troupe is my kryptonite. But when is this deliciously well written with captivating characters you just have to love it. And when I do that than I read it oh so slowly to soak it all up. Mandy is amazing heroine. And don't take this too lightly. I am very choosy and judgy when comes to female characters in books. Hey that is my prerogative. It takes a lot to charm me. I like my woman to be strong. And that usually comes from past mistakes they learned from, from falling but still getting up, for fighting against all odds and she is all that. Flawed and bruised but you can bet your ass she is still determined more than ever to keep on going. She is a workoholic. She is amazing mother, caring friend and good sister. She is real. She is my kind of person. Oh Grant you perfectly imperfect you....you had me since the first naked moment. It is like Paola wrote this guy just for me ( except his blond hair, only blond guys I really fancy are Tom Hardy & Charlie Hunnam but that is different type of conversation) back to the subject....He is a hero I love to read about. That rough around edges that hides all the goodness inside. That guy who doesn't give affection easily but once you have his love he gives you the world. Guy who pays attention to the little things. Huge heart. Oh well abs and muscles and hmmmm everything else doesn't hurt either. Both of them think they don't deserve love. That makes this so much more joyful read when they get their happy end. And also a hopeful one. "I've made mistakes more than my share. But Grant? He's the right to all my wrongs." Side note: Please check out Paola Dangelico Spotify playlist for this book. It is great. This is very heart warming book with a lot of moments that seem so effortlessly well written. And all that mother-son moments make my heart melt. There is also a lot of laugh out loud moments. Like that dance scene. There is also that smack me in the head scene where I along with Sam learned what felching is? Thanks Paola. Thanks very very much. I could live without knowing that. My Google search history too. Whatever you do DO NOT LOOK IT UP. You are welcome. Orrrrrr you already know it...in that case you dirty dirty you..... Anywho...there is a lot of wit in this book, a lot of steam, a lot of comfort. But above all that I find a lot of hope. There is something that touched me very deeply. Made me cry and laugh at the same time. That part when Mandy realizes that life is lived in the now. That tomorrow for some never comes and all you best laid plans are not safe, no they are just convenient. Something just resonated with me with all that...you know that regret is a bitch who is better not provoked. It felt personal and it felt real. Sure we all know that no one is living in the fairy tale but it is nice to be inspired. "Love isn’t finite. There’s no measure to it. It stretches time and space, loops back around, and expands again. Real love, the selfless kind, transcends our own needs but doesn’t leave us poorer, with less, it enriches us in ways we can’t even quantify…beyond our wildest dreams." Another thing is that marking words that Mandy does in her Kindle. I do that too. Because English is not my first language I do it to learn...and because I love words. See..this is my book...written just for me...just let me pretend and if you care about my opinion at all and you still are reading this review GO AND READ THIS BOOK!!!!! I will annoy you to read it....you are warned... "Emotional roller coasters are not an indication of how much someone loves you. Real love is steady. It’s supposed to make you feel safe. Not like you’re constantly dangling off a cliff, on a perpetual high from the spike of adrenaline." Note to self ; I need this book in paperback

As the second oldest of eight and the only daughter to two alcoholics, from a very early age Mandy and her older brother Calvin (from Wrecking Ball fame) were tasked with making sure their younger brothers were taken care of, fed and clothed. You know, all the important stuff parents usually do for their children. The decision to leave home at the age of seventeen to model full time seemed like a no brainer, but fifteen years later, with an addiction kicked and a ten year old son to raise, Amanda finds herself working hard to establish herself as a business owner and as a mom. Who needs romance when you’re working your butt off just to stay afloat, amirite? That moon is a badass bitch. It doesn’t think it’s not deserving. It doesn’t second-guess every decision it’s ever made. Mistakes? No sweat. It struts its stuff without a care, knowing its rightful place in the world. Must be nice. I wonder what that fucking feels like. Grant Hendricks life is focused on one thing and one thing only: football. His past has taught him it’s safer for everyone if the star NFL defensive back uses his power for the good of his team rather than letting his aggressions get the best of him off the field. After a nasty injury leaves him unable to play and in need of a quiet place to recoup, Grant’s grateful for his teammate Calvin’s offer to use his beach house for as long as he needs. Better for everyone involved if Grants stays as far away as possible from the population at large. When Grant’s quiet beach retreat suddenly and without warning also turns into Amanda’s only available summer housing option, it’s safe to say the shit does indeed hit the fan. It’s my big reveal, moment of truth time, folks. As much as I was looking forward to reading Grant and Amanda’s story, I went into it with some lowered expectations. I’ve loved literally everything I’ve read from Ms. Dangelico, but after first being introduced to her in Wrecking Ball, I wasn’t sure I’d like Amanda’s character enough to read a book devoted to her. I’m so freaking glad I got over myself and dove headfirst into this book because Bulldozer ended up being my very favorite book by this author to date. “All I’ve done since I was seven years old is football. I don’t know how to do anything else. I don’t know much about other stuff.” And then he unleashes a toothy grin that takes up half his face. It’s like witnessing a miracle. Even the two chicks hanging on him looked stunned. He just cured cancer with that smile, stopped the ice caps from melting, and reunited R.E.M. On first introduction, Grant came off as a bit of an unfeeling, uncaring prick. But the more Amanda and Grant spent time together, the more Grant…kept being a prick. Yes, the jerk gene runs deep with this one but as the story moves on, Grant’s insecurities start to make an appearance and we begin to see the damaged man beneath the brawn and attitude. Though Bulldozer is told first person via Amanda, absolutely no one is better at letting the reader in on the hero’s side things than P. Dangelico. Seriously, we never get Grant’s side of the story but I felt him falling harder for both Amanda and Sam with every page. His eventual sweetness and strength of character still has me swooning. As for Mandy? I’m thrilled I gave her a chance to work her magic. What I first felt might be a self-centered and hard to like heroine turned into a strong in the very best way, single mom just trying to give her son and herself the life they both deserve. As always, the snarky humor and sheer awesomeness I’ve come to expect from every P. Dangelico book was front and center. Bulldozer is the third book of the Hard to Love series but can most definitely be read as a standalone. ARC provided by the author in exchange for an honest, voluntary review

She owned up to her previous issues and was trying her best. Grant I really disliked as did Amanda to start with, and I was at the point of "seriously just ring your brother and get him chucked out of the house" when Bam, you are all of a sudden rooting for him. Your opinion of him begins to change as you realise how vulnerable and damaged he is. I adore an enemies to lovers story, and a slow build too, and this was pure perfection, with two troubled characters, with hard pasts, who come to realise they don't hate each other and infact need each other. And Grant with Sam!!! Swoon..... However, I felt like I wanted to get to know Grant a bit more than we did. It felt like we barely scratched the surface with the grumpy, vulnerable complicated lovely ass hole man he is! All in a great 4.5 stars. Almost a 5, i just wanted to know more of Grant.

    Let me tell you something, I read about Amanda’s life little bit in Wrecking Ball and I wasn’t her fan at all! So, when I found out she will get her own book, I wasn’t very enthusiastic, and I didn’t even ask P for an ARC, because I’m not sure if I want to read this book. But after so many fantastic reviews on my timeline, hah! Look at me now, I couldn’t even make myself stop until I finished Amanda and Grant and Sam and Roxy’s story 😊. What a lovely lovely read! 🥰 ❤❤❤ Let me tell you something, I read about Amanda’s life little bit in Wrecking Ball and I wasn’t her fan at all!

    I went into this book with very mixed expectations. On the one hand, I was incredibly eager to get my hands on another book of this series as I loved its two predecessors so much. On the other hand, I was afraid to be disappointed yet again by a book written by this author, especially after the dud her last novel, Tiebreaker, turned out to be for me.

However, while I didn't adore this as much as I would've liked, I'm happy to say that I really enjoyed it. Grant was positively dreamy and he reminded me a lot of Calvin Shaw, the endearingly grumpy hero we met in book #1. Grant was just as broody and surly, but with a heart of gold and a dick the size of a baseball bat (yeah, this is something we are being told repeatedly). Amanda was alright, I guess, but I didn't connect with her as much as with this series' other heroines. I found her to be rather bland, despite her, let's call it 'colorful' past, and she was kind of a doormat, especially at the beginning. I did adore her son Sam, though. This is a romance basically free of angst (not counting Grant's weird behavior in the beginning), in fact there were times I would've liked some more conflict to keep things a little more exciting. It is as safe as can be, regarding both OW/OM drama and other possible triggers (as far as I am concerned). A slow-paced, slow-burn romance with an abundance of lovable characters. The perfect read to keep you warm on cold winter days. ARC provided by the author in exchange for an honest review.

    What a fantastic book. Amanda was so amazing, trying to find redemption from her past, with humor and grit. I really admired her perseverance and strength. And her love for her son was beautiful. Grant was an adorable, vulnerable teddy bear hiding behind an a$$hat persona. Boy did sparks fly when they were in the same vicinity of each other! I am jumping for joy that I have found a new author to love. ♥♥♥

    This was a great escapism read that captured my interest and kept me going through a busy work week. It is the kind of book I would have liked to read in a day on holiday, but it worked on the opposite intensity of life. This is single mom territory with an older child (age 11) and the said child is not annoying but a welcome addition to the story.

It is the kind of book I would have liked to read in a day on holiday, but it worked on the opposite intensity of life. This is single mom territory with an older child (age 11) and the said child is not annoying but a welcome addition to the story. Mandy has her own background of issues prior to being the together parent and business owner she is at the start of the story. Grant is her brother’s teammate that is also staying at the beach house to recuperate from some surgery. Memo: Grant is a jacka$$. He’s ignorant, arrogant and a car crash around her child. The story builds from there and I found myself invested in Mandy as a mother but also Mandy as a woman. Grant slowly began to show signs of being more than a neanderthal and the more I saw, the more I liked. His connection to Roxy and Sam were super sweet. There was a slow build of chemistry and a believable friendship growth between these two. There are ex problems, addiction problems, business problems and more. It wasn’t overly angsty, just the right slice. Although this is connected to a series, it stands alone, so if you haven’t read P Dangelico, you could start here and you’d likely want to then rewind to book one, Wrecking Ball. I voluntarily read a copy of this book. Reviewed for Jo&IsaLoveBooks Blog.
