The time had come for Luca Conti to hang up his boots.

After a career travelling the world and playing in some of the biggest games, his body was tired, and he was looking for the next step.

The only problem was, what came next?

After playing the game he loved day in day out since he was a kid, Luca had no idea what life looked like on the other side.

Enter Elise McCoy.

Elise doesn’t do sports. She does margarita Mondays and tight-arse Tuesdays. With her job as a schoolteacher filling her days and her crazy best friends filling her nights, she’s not looking for anything more.

Elise is ready to play and Luca is out to win the most important game of his life.

"How are you feeling anyway?”
“Better than I was.”
“Good to hear. You know you should’ve called me. I would’ve come over and taken care of you. Or you could’ve crashed at my place,” I offered, choosing my words carefully, conscious of the little ears hovering around.
“I know. I just didn’t want to make you sick too. Besides, I didn’t want you to see me all snotty and gross.”
Unable to keep my hands to myself a moment longer, I wrapped my arm around her shoulders and hugged her against me, almost a bit surprised when she let me. “That’s the part in the vows ‘in sickness and in health’,” I reminded her.
“Yeah, in wedding vows. We’re not married, remember?” she threw back, thinking she’d won this round. Silly girl.
“Not yet anyway.”

Rebecca is a clumsy, introverted, bubble bath loving, chocoholic who'd rather read a book than go shopping. And don't even mention shoe shopping!

Rebecca is a lucky girl - one of four kids to school teacher parents. Wife to a football obsessed husband. Aunt to the most crazy/adorable little girls. And sister to two very determined sisters and one easy going brother.

Rebecca lives in Canberra Australia and spends way too many hours a day working the day job.

She is a book whore who can easily (and happily) read a book from start to finish in one sitting and spends her spare time writing.


It’s not very often I end up reading a book from an Australian author but every time I do not only do I love it but I also finish the book with a sense of pride - yep proud Aussie here!!
This book was a little slow to start with, but boy once it found its legs it was all steam ahead.
Luca and Elise were two fabulous characters, and in a perfect world one or both of them I would be happy to call friend.
Their chemistry was jumping from the pages but their back and forth was outstanding and I thought this was the part that made the book as special as it was for me.
Add in great supporting characters - I am talking about you Jax - and I know that it won’t be long before a reread is in order. I voluntarily reviewed an advanced readers copy of this book.
