This was really, really great. I loved reading about TK, as expected, and Poppy was an excellent character/match for him. Second chance romances are my favorite. I loved how open and honest the two of them were with each other. The inevitable moment where things go to shit was actually logical and not because of miscommunication, which I appreciated, but I have to admit - the ending of the story was not my favorite. I mean, I GET it for sure, but it wasn't what I wanted for TK's story. I'm probably just being a picky football fan, if I'm being honest, because every other thing about this romance was perfection.

I loved Poppy and her storyline as well as all the great friendships. I also really liked TK and how the author wove in the serious consequences of concussions in football into an overall fun, lighthearted story. I still feel that the romance itself was a bit lackluster, but am really enjoying Martin's characters and overall writing.

Audio narration was really good despite there being a different narrator from book 1.

There wasn’t much conflict - the stalker who went no where and the horrible mother-in-law - both plot points started but never amounted to anything other than a few paragraphs here and there. Both “conflicts” felt like they were added because the author or publisher decided there needed to be some spice but couldn’t decide on what.

On the other hand, the discussion of head injuries in the NFL really hit home. I think people forget, when they’re watching Sunday games, how dangerous football really is and how those men are risking their mental health and stability for public enjoyment.
