Amber Montgomery is perfectly happy with her quiet life,
running her bookstore, taking long walks with Reno, her Labrador retriever
seizure response dog, and spending time with her close-knit family. She's never
needed thrills the way some of her sisters have. In an effort to control her
epilepsy, she tries to avoid anything that creates too much excitement or
stress--including relationships. When Amber hosts a book signing for
famed-athlete-turned-author Dash Pennington, he's everything she's spent her
life avoiding: loud, aggressive, and far too handsome, as proven by the hordes
of women who surround him everywhere he goes. Amber can't ignore the sparks
flying between her and Dash, but this is a no-brainer for her: Ignore their
chemistry and hold her breath until he leaves town.
Dash Pennington has spent his life running. Running the ball in for a
touchdown, running from town to town to appease his public relations reps, and
for years, running into the arms of too many women to count. He's also an
expert at protecting--his reputation, his family, and lately, his sanity. But
he's ready to make a change. When he comes to the sleepy little town of Oak
Falls, Virginia, and witnesses the most beautiful woman he's ever seen living
the life he craves, she refuses to have anything to do with him. But now that
Dash has found the one thing he doesn't want to run from, he'll stop at nothing
to win her over.
“Opposites attract, 5 stars”
I absolutely loved how different Dash and Amber were. She keeps to herself and his life is very public thanks to being in the NFL. When he starts setting up his book tour and the bookstore owner in his buddy's hometown doesn’t want to host him, he can’t help but be intrigued. Once he meets her, he’s a goner. Only Amber isn’t that easily swayed. Dash reminds her to step out of her safe bubble and Amber reminds Dash it's okay to slow down. Add in the way Foster wrote Amber’s medical issues, and it was perfection.
If you need a binge worthy series, look no further. Foster has you covered.
