Loveswept: Random. (Second Chances, Bk. 6). Apr. 2016. 205p. ebk. ISBN 9781101967812. $2.99. CONTEMPORARY ROMANCE/SPORTS
After witnessing the death of her mixed martial arts (MMA) fighter husband, tavern owner Summer Jacobs never thought she would be capable of feeling alive again—that is until she runs into Carolina Cougars wide receiver Evan Townsend. Wanting to keep up her nursing credentials, Summer will be filling in while Evan's sister, one of the team's doctors, is on maternity leave. Being around Evan ignites something in Summer that she thought died with Austin, and she finally feels ready to take the plunge. But being with Evan poses risks, too, especially when an opponent targets him during a game, and it seems much more than a simple rivalry. In fact, Summer's therapist believes that Evan will bring her down, and she won't be able to return this time from that dark place.
VERDICT Dover's (Intercepting Love) sweet and flirty contemporary takes a darker turn with the death of one of the cheerleaders—a player's girlfriend—which propels the plot and keeps the reader engaged. One need not to be fan of football to fall head over heels for this spunky contemporary romance with elements of suspense.
