They call me Sexy Six
Sexy? That’s what they say
Unstoppable? You bet your ass
What happens when you come face to face with the 'one who got away'?
I loved Hotshot (although that book hurt my heart!!) and when I saw that this book had the same characters and a few new ones, I dug in! Nick Bennett is on the fast track to be drafted by the NFL. He has a date with sweet Grace Monroe who’s at the same college. They instantly connect and then…the floor drops out from beneath Grace. She literally disappears off the radar and Nick is left alone.
Fast forward two years later and Nick is the hot shot quarterback with the nickname Sexy Six. He’s led his team into a Super Bowl championship. His brother Shaw represents him. When he gets a glimpse of a woman that he thinks is Grace he just about loses it. But when he tries to find her he turns up empty. He sets Shaw on the case and let’s face it, there’s not much Shaw can’t do when he sets his mind to it.
“When I asked Shaw to find you, I was curious, wanting to see you again, talk to you, get answers and see how you were doing. That curiosity turned into so much more the second my eyes landed on you last Thursday.”
Grace is now the co-owner of Monroe Gallery along with her brother Logan. When Nick weasels his way into an appointment with her, it’s obvious neither one of them ever forgot the other. Nick is not about to let Grace get away again.
Now, he’s kissing me like a man kisses a woman he hasn’t seen in two years, six months, and seventeen days.
The thing I loved about this story is that Nick is a really great guy. He isn’t your typical manwhore that sees the light. Football and his family are his priorities. He’s had casual hook ups but just hasn’t found that one person –that is until he reconnects with Grace.
“Babe, I’ve never dated in my life. The only girl I ever wanted to date slipped through my fingers and ditched me. For years, no one has even turned my head. My life has been football and family, and I’ve been fine with that.”
Getting caught up on Bizzy and Shaw and Claire and Mathis (Nick’s other brother who is studying to be a doctor) is a bonus! While there are more than a few angsty moments in this one, it won’t tear you apart. Although I had to keep reminding myself that guys screw up and Nick is no exception. But this guy is truly swoon worthy. Now here’s hoping that Mathis gets his own book too!
“I’m so in love with you, Nick Bennett.” She rises on her toes and kisses me quickly. “It’s a good thing because you’ve stolen my heart twice in my life.”
