My rating: 4 of 5 stars
My Reaction: goofy smiling face. Disappointment: How come this is so short?
Three years ago, cameraman Powell Perdue and quarterback Talbot Wojewódka called it quits, citing irreconcilable differences. Powell wanted to live honestly, while Talbot felt he couldn’t and still succeed in professional football. One knee surgery and a trade later, Talbot finds himself back in town and quarterbacking for the Raptors, a struggling expansion team. Powell’s also back, working as a cameraman for KJOC-TV, following two years in Amsterdam and a second failed relationship.
When an interview meant as a publicity play throws them into each other’s path, they’re forced to face a love that never quite died and wounds that never fully healed. For any hope at a win, they’ll have to change up the game. Talbot must brave walking through his closet door and into Powell’s arms, and Powell must risk his heart one more time by standing his ground and giving Talbot a second chance.
I am so disappointed that this is such a short story. This is one of those that would have come out better if it had been a bit longer. The writing style was great, the story line was great, the characters were great, I liked the suspense in the beginning and wish the author Dawn Kimberly Johnson had spent more time on it or elaborated on it, and the smexy scenes were Just Right!
This is one of those short stories that had not disappointed me and it left me smiling at the end. Kept going on to the next page in hopes that it were longer.
Is it too late to request a longer version?
