From New York Times and USAToday bestselling author, Nicole Williams, comes a new standalone romance.
The whole world might be in love with him. But all he’s ever loved is her.
Grant Turner’s name is synonymous with football. The fans and media can’t get enough of the player known as The Invincible Man, a nickname he earned while growing up in one of the toughest neighborhoods in the country and the nickname he’s kept by being one of the best players in professional football today. No one can take him down. He’s unstoppable.
But even a suit of armor has its weak point, and Grant’s has always been Ryan Hale.
They were a couple of kids when they fell in love, and just when it looked like the happy ending neither expected was within reach, Ryan disappeared. No explanations. No good-byes.
Grant coped by throwing himself into the game for seven years, and he’s finally moved on. Or so he thinks.
When she walks back into his life, all of those feelings come crashing back, despite the warnings in his head that tell him she’ll leave him again. Turner can withstand the league’s toughest defensive line, but he’s always been weak where she’s concerned.
No man can take Grant Turner down.
But one woman certainly can.
One woman will.
another Williams beautifully crafted story!
I LOVE second chance romance and Nicole Williams gave us Touching Down, a book that is well written, emotional, and unforgettable. Get ready to add another book boyfriend to your list with Grant Turner!
Childhood friends who become more is one of my absolute favorites. Ryan Hale and Grant Turner were young when they fell in love. Things were going great for them with Grant looking toward his future as a pro football player when everything changed course and Ryan left without an explanation.
Fast forward seven years and they are thrown into each other's lives again when the person who served as a mother figure to them, a safe haven in their impoverished community, died and they are attending her funeral. To feel the emotions when they run into each other for the first time was so emotional because when you see your first love, your first everything and know in your heart that feelings (though) buried are still there - despite the anger, you just want them to talk, to get it all out there, to hopefully get back together <3
I apologize for being vague here as I don't want to spoil the story for you but secrets are revealed - some surprising, some that I figured out on my own. I will say that Grant really stole the show for me. He could not be more heart melting *le sigh*
Touching Down is about second chances, how things can change in an instant and to enjoy every moment in life with no regrets, how sometimes you have to let go of the pain and anger of the past because there are more important things in life. Readers who love Ms. Williams beautifully crafted stories that touch your heart should pick this one up and get ready with tissues because it's a tear jerker you will not ever forget.
It had me laughing and crying and had just enough shock and surprise to keep you on the edge, while still giving us a happy ending. Their love story is one you definitely want to read.
