Meet Graham Tettersaw, former star quarterback. He blew his first shot at success, but now he has a second chance at playing football . . . and at having a life. Graham’s not about to squander this new opportunity with a rising team. No way. They’re about to make his dreams come true, even If they did just add a weird clause that he’s supposed to pretend some random chick is his girlfriend.
Teams can be weird about stuff. But Graham can play along. After all, it’s all about forward progress.
In football, getting the ball down the field and scoring is goal number one. Life isn’t all that much different. That’s why Graham is hoping to do some scoring of his own off the field. Especially when he finds out the pretend girlfriend the team has picked out for him, Eden Vetterly, is beyond hot.
But it’s not all about sex.
Graham really likes Eden.
And she likes him too—a lot.
Too bad the team just changed all the rules.
Forward Progress is the first book in the new Men of Fall series, where football meets romance.
“I’ve read a lot of fake girlfriend/boyfriend romances, but Forward Progress stood out amongst them all to me.” – Cranky – The Book Curmudgeon
“This was a great start to the series and I cannot wait to see what S.R.Grey has in store for the Men of Fall.” – Erin Lewis
“Sweetness overload with some wonderful swoon and drama to keep you on your toes come together in this sexy football romance!” – Red Hatter Book Blog
Eden Vetterly has baggage. Not the baggage you might think, more like responsibilities. Responsibilities she is trying really hard to meet but never quite gets there.
Graham Tettersaw is a former football star with a second chance at stardom. That second chance comes with some stipulations, one of those being Eden Vetterly.
Let the games begin 🙂
So the blurb tells you basically what the plot/gist of this story is so I don’t need to say much on that. I will say that I enjoyed myself a lot reading this story but I wasn’t that happy with the change of plans the team thru out there to Eden and Graham. It just didn’t make for a very good conflict. IMO, it came across kinda dumb. Especially the reason behind the team’s about turn. The story lost a little shine for that for me but not enough to cancel out all the other good things. Just a tiny little bleep lol
I love the author’s voice. She makes the stories fun to read. It isn’t a chore to pick up one of her books and just read for an entire afternoon. Eden and Graham had great personalities and sparks flew all around!
I’ll be honest and say this book didn’t blow me away. It has such strong potential but kinda didn’t reach up to it. I really liked Graham and Eden. They were both hardworking, doing their best to succeed in the world. But the chemistry was missing for me. The storyline was OK and I did liked it I just wish they had that more I was hoping for. The plot was interesting and maybe I wanted more angst for me to really love this book.
I’m sad to give my first 3,5* for 2019… here’s to hoping the next book will blow mind.
