Scoring is the best part of the game.
Family lore about falling in forever love made for fun fireside fairy tales, but Kirsty Durnin isn’t interested. After spending her high school years washing baby vomit out of her hair and rerouting her college plans after her mother’s surprise pregnancy, she’s finally ready to finish her undergrad degree before pursuing her master's. No more distractions...until she indulges in an impulsive, mind-melting New Year's kiss with Gladiators offensive lineman, Everest.
Everest McBride oozes chiseled, mountain-sized masculine perfection and dominates on and off the field. Everest thought he had his life plan lined up like hash marks on a football field before he met Kirsty. Suddenly, he can’t get the pint-sized pixie out of his head. Everest’s go-to game plan to win Kirsty’s heart involves charm, but getting ghosted isn’t in his playbook.
Kirsty refuses to let a single smooch, no matter how hot, detour her path. By ignoring Everest, she’ll forever fracture her family’s “love at first kiss” fairy tale, but Everest plays to win, and, besides, he gives really good text.
I absolutely love the first and second books in this series, but this third is my favorite. Really great character development. There are some heavy topics in this one that are handled very well. It’s still a light-hearted book overall, but the characters are faced with some very difficult situations. The scenarios and how people deal with them feel realistic and authentic to the story. I cried, I laughed, and I fell even more in love with this author’s writing.
