One is lost, the other has the strength to save them both.
Jett is the the second string quarterback, accustomed to living adrift.
Jesse is the lost war widow, unable or unwilling to take a chance.
When Jett is blindsided, the two collide in the game of love and loss.
The question is; can either learn to win, or risk losing it all once more?
Second String is an emotional journey through discovering yourself and learning to love. Jett is a backup quarterback just let go and Jesse is a widow lost in her grief. Lost, Jett ends up in a bar in small town in Texas. He just wants to drink and forget – forget being fired, forget the pressure put on him by his family and hide from their disappointment. Instead he meets Beau who offers him kindness, friendship and a job. And when Jett see Jesse from across the bar he jumps at Beau’s offer. Jesse is a grieving widow and no one would be as good as her Jonny. But Jesse can’t deny her reaction to Jett and so they, reluctantly, start their journey toward love and healing. This story has something for everyone – football, marines, cowboys, hot sex, some religious/spiritual explorations, and of course an HEA. I laughed, I cried, and I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I look forward to reading more by M.C. Webb.
I received this book for free from the author/publisher via NetGalley and I’m voluntarily giving an honest review.
