He was the high school hottie. She was the teacher’s pet. But in private, none of that mattered...
At the tender age of six, Penelope Watkins fell for her best friend’s brother, Evan Donovan, future hunk. By the time they were teenagers, they were having heart-to-hearts…and hot and heavy top secret make-out sessions. All that changed when Evan’s father suddenly died. Abruptly, Penelope lost him to grief—and to his true love: football. But now an injury had ended Evan's NFL career. The notorious bad boy was in a depression no one could penetrate, except maybe the one woman who still knew him best—and still wanted him most…
Penelope is the last person Evan wants to witness the wreck he’s become. So when she shows up at his door he’s less than welcoming—even though the sight of her brings back the same old rush of desire. As a teenager, the emotions overwhelmed him. Now, when he wanted to be overwhelmed, Penelope wasn’t playing. She was telling the golden boy it was time to man up. It may have taken a concussion for Evan to realize it, but that’s exactly what he wants to do—starting with her…

This can be read as a standalone but would be a lot better if you read the whole series. I really wanted to like this story as I usually love 2nd chance love stories. I honestly really didn’t care for it. I found myself just wanting to toss it aside but couldn’t since this was a book I received to review. This was a very slow book for me and I just really couldn’t get into it. I’m not saying it’s a bad book but we dont all like every authors writing style which honestly I think was my problem with this book. 

I received an Arc from netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
