Former nurse Summer Jacobs has seen her fair share of suffering, but she never expected tragedy to hit so close to home. After watching her husband die in the MMA ring, Summer spends the next two years fighting her way through the darkness. The last thing she needs is another hardheaded athlete turning her life upside down. But that’s exactly what happens when she meets a gridiron star who’s as skilled at stealing hearts as he is at snagging passes.
Carolina Cougars wide receiver Evan Townsend usually has no problem winning fans, so he’s intrigued when Summer shoots down his go-to plays for winning a woman’s attention. Never one to back down from a challenge, Evan turns up the heat, setting off sparks that neither can deny. But as his slow seduction begins to chase away Summer’s pain, he gets the feeling that someone is desperate to keep them apart. Now Evan will do anything to protect her—because he never misses a chance to make a perfect catch.
~*REVIEW BY JODIE RAE*~
Catching Summer is book number six in the Second Chances series by L.P. Dover. Even though I have not read a couple of books in this series, I can say that I am a fan of this series. I love the characters L.P. Dover has created and with each new installment, you get wrapped in a new fabulous story.
Summer Jacobs lost her husband two years ago while he was in the MMA ring and she has been living her life for him. Summer was a nurse but in the last two years she wanted to make her husband proud. She opened a restaurant, something he always wanted to do. After losing her husband the one thing Summer has not been able to allow herself to love again. Summer is nervous to let her heart love again and when she does Caroline NFL superstar, Evan Townsend, is going to do everything he can to open up her heart to let love in.
I seriously loved this book and I feel like it might be my favorite in this series. I feel like this book provides the reader with such a wide range of emotions! The book will have you laughing, swooning over Evan, feeling suspense, and you may even tear up a little.
