How would you feel if your soulmate ended up being your stepsibling? Thanks to her mother who played matchmaker, she reconnects with a former teammate. Young Emma was a football kicker, tomboy, belching girl and he was, Sawyer, Mr. All-American quarterback. Both now adults in their respective careers connect in an extended catch-up phone call and date. Fast forward, a year later and everything has changed. Emma's mother has died and her father has remarried to none other than Sawyer's mother, who makes Cruella seem like the nice sister.

Book Review

The author did a good job of developing the characters and providing a not so typical journey to love and happiness. As expected, there was a quite a bit of angst and I wanted to say "get out of your head" and just ask questions. During these moments, the story lulled a little bit for me. I did like Emma and Sawyer, even though there was nothing wicked about him. The cast of supporting characters added a nice layer of humor, betrayal, and villainy to the novel. They provided the texture to the story.

The narrator was spot on and did a great job of bringing the characters life. The story moved well minus the few lulls and the production was flawless. I look forward to the next in the series.
