Alivia Monaghan had it all: a successful business, happy children, and her husband Jax Monaghan, the love of her life. Until the day Jax made a choice that altered their lives and crushed Alivia harder than a quarterback sack.

Football hero Jax Monaghan hadn’t had it easy in life. Despite his thriving football career he always destroyed everything beautiful he’s ever had. That was until he met his wife, Alivia, who had taught him what love and family was all about. But when he watches his wife fall apart due to his decisions, he’s reminded just what he is capable of – and he makes what he thinks is the ultimate sacrifice. Walking away.

When Jax returns home in order to be closer to his children, he can’t help but want to be closer with Alivia again as well. But the brutal reality of his choices keep knocking him back to the starting line. As the past threatens them further apart, Jax and Alivia are forced to line up together and play for the same team. Had their entire marriage been a trick play? Or was it simply just a false start into their happily ever after?

What a great sports second chance romance! I enjoyed the characters and the storyline! Both of the main characters,Jax and Alivia,were damaged by events that occurred in the past. I don't think that either one of them ever came to grips with,or sought help in dealing with their past issues. So,when they meet,fall in love,and marry,their past issues knock on their door. Everyone has different ways of coping with stress,and exhaustion. That is the time when you lean on each other for support,and comfort. Misunderstandings and the past cause Jax to leave Alivia and his children. This made me not only sad,but angry at the same time! I mean,how could you up and leave your family! He thought he was the cause of Alivia's stress! He didn't discuss things with her,he just left!! Running a business,raising twin girls,having a dying parent,certainly couldn't be cause for stress! Could it? Men!!! Ughh!!
Once Alivia is doing well,has things under control,then he returns!!! Hot on his trail is a psycho of an ex-girlfriend! His ex is only in it to win it! What is IT you ask? IT is a future as a Quarterback's Wife!!

I liked the ending of this story! I found myself sighing,and smiling! I look forward to reading more about the characters and,more from this author!
