Small town Holly Point wasn’t big enough to hold the dreams of golden girl Maggie Benson. So when she left at eighteen, she flew right through college and into the adrenaline-pumping life of a navy fighter pilot. But without warning, a devastating crash destroys the career she loves and sends her back to her overly protective family to heal. Maggie can’t imagine how she can reconnect with the woman she was until the hot local high school basketball coach steps up to show her the way.
Former NBA star Will Fitzgerald knows how an injury can derail more than a career. Still, he’s happy with his life as a teacher and coach at Holly Point High School, until his quiet life is upended by the beautiful, brilliant and hurting Maggie. Blindsided by the intense attraction, Will wonders if pursuing the woman of his dreams will answer the question of what’s been missing in his life.
Can Maggie trust enough again to let Will past her wounds, inside and out, so that they can both find the Christmas magic they’ve been searching for?
This isn’t an exceptional book, but it is pleasant and easy to read. It’s also a nice twist for the disabled vet to be the female, rather than the guy.
A truly enjoyable and heart warming story of how love overlooks imperfections to see the true soul hidden inside! Great book!
Love the story and the dynamics of Will and Maggie. Such a special story. Nice to read about a female veteran too. So many stories out there about the guys, I’m glad one was written about a female and her struggle with wartime injuries. I loved every page of this book!
