Falcon Football series
by Laura Trentham
Jessica Montgomery has always lived by three simple rules: stay calm, stay professional, stay in control. Working tirelessly to make it into the executive ranks of her family’s business, her dream job of CFO is within reach-if she can convince one stubborn and sexy restaurateur to take her offer and manage Montgomery Industries’ flagship restaurant in Atlanta.
On the surface Logan Wilde is all good-old-boy charm and humor, but he can’t seem to outrun the hell-raising reputation of his high school years. Although he has thought about leaving his hometown in Falcon, Alabama, he has grown to love the town, his restaurant, and his part-time gig coaching the football team.
Jessica estimates it will take a week tops to get Logan Wilde’s signature on her generous offer, but their first meeting is anything but professional. Logan shreds Jessica’s control and unleashes a passion she didn’t know existed even as a deeper connection between them takes root. When her family’s manipulations threaten to tear them apart, Jessica has to decide whether her dream is really the CFO job or the man who has unselfishly offered his love.
I’ll be honest I didn’t think I’d like this one very much. There was a little preview of the first chapter in the back of Slow and Steady Rush and I just knew Jessica was going to be one of those women that I didn’t like. But I loved Logan enough that I was willing to take her on to get his story …. y’all that teaser didn’t do her justice AT ALL. She’s so wonderfully neurotic and I loved every single minute of this book!
Jessica has so many hang-ups thanks to her parents. She’s never really had a chance to be normal or even to be loved & supported like she needed. Except by her grandmother. And thanks to Logan, and a forced stay in Falcon, she’s starting to remember those wonderful summers and what it felt like to be cared for. It’s so very sweet to watch her come into herself and find her way.
And Logan … I knew I’d love that boy from the moment we met him in the first book and he doesn’t fail me. He’s caring and smart and giving. He’s also sexy as all get out and when he turns on that Southern charm with Jessica she has no hope. And neither do you 🙂
I love that Trentham brings her readers a journey piece to go with the romance. We get to watch them fall in love and grow and find a path that works for them both. It’s funny and touching and sexy and irresistible. And I can’t wait to see what she has in mind for the next story. We get some hints here and I just know it is going to be another sure-fire hit!
