Is the Dragons’ new wide receiver: A) a fallen NFL star looking for a comeback, B) the sexy player your boss wants you to write an exposé on, or C) the former love of your life?
For Milwaukee Dragons beat reporter Natalie Griffith, he’s clearly D) all of the above. Three years ago, Natalie’s bombshell report on her ex-boyfriend’s off-the-field scandals landed her the job she loves, but she still feels guilty about destroying his career. Now Quinn Lowry’s back, and he’s taking over her locker room, flashing his charming smile and reminding her exactly how hot they were together.
After two years out of the league, Quinn is sober and on the field again. He’s worked his ass off and he’s not going to blow his second chance, not even for the woman who broke his heart—twice. Having Natalie around is the last thing Quinn needs while he’s trying to prove he deserves to stay on the team.
Maybe one final night together will give them both some much-needed closure. But with Natalie’s boss pressuring her for another headline-grabbing scoop, can she admit to herself that she’s falling for Quinn all over again?

APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
The third book in the Milwaukee Dragons series is a second-chance romance that can easily be read as a stand-alone. After two years away from the NFL, Quinn Lowry is sober and ready to revive his career, but his ex, sports reporter Natalie Griffith, proves to be quite the distraction. We love emotional complexity with our romance, and Quinn and Natalie both have to clear real obstacles in order to trust each other again. Home Field Advantage also takes a hard look at substance abuse in the professional sports world, bringing a refreshing realness to the story.
After each book in this series, I become more of a fan of the Dragons and can't wait for the next story to come out.
This book checks all my boxes: friends to lovers, second chance, sports romance. These are three of my favorite tropes so I love that this is all three rolled into one. I loved how Natalie and Quinn gave glimpses into their previous relationship from their perspectives. I enjoyed the slow build up to these two getting together, all while trying to overcome their history.
I can be a bit of a snob with addiction storylines because that's where I live my every day life. For the most part, I thought Quinn's alcoholism was treated respectfully and Natalie accessing her own support was an amazing addition. I did wonder why Quinn didn't go to anything other than therapy since this probably wouldn't be something that would be suggested by his treatment team but I still loved how honestly this topic was dealt with.
I need Matt's story in my life so I really hope his book will be on the horizon. This Dragons fan wants all the players to get their HEA!!
