Pick this up if
You want a hot, charming hero who is in tune with his feelings and not afraid to cry. You like cute banter. You don’t mind characters crying. You like Kandi Steiner’s writing. You want an emotional read with cute, funny bits sprinkled within. You want a feminist hero. You want to read about a heroine who suffers from anxiety whenever she feels like she is losing control.
Don’t pick this up if
You don’t like the dead spouse trope. You don’t like it when a character treat their partner horribly because of their past partner. You don’t like it when a main character keeps making excuses for not being in a relationship.
The cover made it seem like a cute, fluffy, sports romance but it did start on a rather sad note.

I get asked how I read so many books. This is how I do it:
Kindle Unlimited (definitely worth it for romance readers)
Audible (2 free audiobooks for your first month)
Prime membership allows me to get knew books at my doorstep fast (get the first month free). I have Prime Student which comes with a 6 month free trial.
I also had Audible Escape but it got cancelled 😦
