I must confess that I read both books in this series, out of order! Usually that means I can never go back, but I loved the second book so much that I thought I’d give the first book (Tigers and Devils) a go. And it didn’t disappoint! Even with knowing how the story progressed, it was a completely different story and held its own nicely.
This is the love story of two unlikely and opposite men, struggling through different situations to come together – and hopefully stay together. One is a very famous/popular soccer player, the other a somewhat stereotypical film festival coordinator. Think: macho pro-athlete, coupled with a lanky nonathletic sarcastic movie buff. But it came together amazingly well and un-cliched. Through publicity hoops, jealous exes, fears of being outed, and “am I good enough” struggles, this is a love story that mostly seems “true to life.”
The sex is hot, but not prevalent. Which was kinda nice, I have to admit. Sex was had when it fit the story, not the other way around. It was hot at times, somewhat “eh” at others, but overall, created a lot of heat to the tale… even if it was pretty vanilla.
Out of four…
Overall Read: ♥♥♥♥
Sex Heat: ♥
I really liked this series (at least the two books I’ve read in it) and would recommend it to anyone who likes a good love story that isn’t always flowers and fake promises. There were struggles, true ups and downs, passion, and a good love story.
