Will Edmonson and I were never supposed to be a thing.
The chemistry was there. Oh, God, was it there.
But he always pulled away from me right when things were heating up.
Until he didn't.
Now, the closer we get, the more I fear I'll never truly be enough for him,
Not after all he's lost.
Gina Rodrigo is the woman of my dreams.
And the one woman I refused to let myself have.
Until I couldn't fight it anymore.
But she doesn't know my secret, and the deeper we get, the more I know I can never really have her.
I don't deserve to.
Not after what I've done.
Across the Middle is the second steamy standalone sports romance in the LA Wolves Series.

Breaking Free of the Past
Will is a successful football player, with a loving mom and sisters, but he is also hiding a secret that is eating him up inside. His fiancé died in a car accident but no one knows the true details around her death but Will. He feels like he is unworthy of having a true relationship. But when he meets Gina, he cannot help himself. He feels like he does not deserve her but he wants to. Gina is coming off a string of bad relationships and wants someone to fight for her. Will’s hot and cold act in the beginning has made her skittish and Will has to work hard to win her over.
I liked that both main characters love theirs families and make them a priority. I also liked that Will is not afraid to go to therapy and it is portrayed as something that really helps him. Will’s “wooing” of Gina is really sweet as well.
I did read the first book in this series and it does give you a bit more background on how Will and Gina first met. This book still works as a stand-alone but I enjoyed the first book too so it is worth a read.
I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy for an honest review.
