Review: Sidelined (A Wilde Players Dirty Romance) by Terri E. Laine & A.M. Hargrove
From the USA Today Bestselling Authors, A.M. Hargrove and Terri E. Laine comes a new standalone sexy sports romance, Sidelined – A Wilde Players Dirty Romance.
I hate him… I love him… He destroyed me… and now He needs me.
Fletcher Wilde, a gorgeous quarterback in the NFL, is the man I should have married. He’s the one that walked away, choosing football over me. He shouldn’t be back, especially not looking that good. And not sitting in my waiting room chair with a bum leg and confident cocky grin that sets my insides on fire.
It’s impossible to forget how he rocked my world both in and out of the bedroom. Keeping things professional won’t be easy, especially given our history. My mission, however, is getting him back on the field—the place he loved more than me, while not losing myself in him all over again.
Cassidy Miller is the only physical therapist in town. And after a potential career ending injury, she’s my ticket back on the field or my NFL career is over. Unfortunately, she’s the same Cassidy who ripped my heart to shreds when I thought we were a team.
Sexy and intelligent, she’s the last person I thought I’d see again. As it turns out, she looks better than ever, making me want that smart mouth of hers doing things to me that would drive a sane man crazy.
Lucky for me, my determination is legendary. Winning is in my blood, which makes me number one on the field. Being a single-minded man, my focus is to get her back and this time for good.
*Don’t go looking for a lot of football in this book, although there will be several touchdowns. This quick, sexy, second chance love story will ignite your e-reader. Be prepared to sweat a little when you read this hot, fast and frivolous erotic love story!
Sidelined was a quick, bit over the top at times, read. I didn't hate it, but I also didn't love it either. *some slight spoilers ahead*
Fletcher and Cassidy used to be an item, but then everything fell apart years ago. Now Fletcher is back in town and needs a physical therapist to try and recover so he can still play ball. And Cassidy is the only physical therapist in town. This was the typical second chance romance, only I really didn't like Cassidy. I really hate people who whine about how much someone else hurt them when they are the ones who did it to themselves. When they are the ones whose insecurities caused them to break someone else's heart. When the other person didn't do anything, and yet you claim they broke your heart. I really dislike that. Because you need to be honest with yourself and stop bad mouthing someone who didn't do anything and tried to make things work in a tough situation. I...I really hate people like that. Which was Cassidy. When we find out why they broke up to begin with I really didn't like her. And her whole can't have a relationship now even though we both still love each other? It was annoying. Plus she has a horrible ex and his whole storyline was a bit over the top for me.
I liked Fletcher a lot. He was hurt all those years ago, but he is willing to move on and try and actually have something with Cassidy. He gets why she didn't want to move to be with him before, but things are different now and he could try and move to be with her instead. They have more options now that he is set in his career and not a rookie. Plus she is more able to come and go so they can try and figure something out if she wants to. I liked Fletcher, but I wasn't really sure why he loved Cassidy so much. She was kind of terrible to him at times. But I liked him enough to want him to get his happily ever after, even if that was with Cassidy.
As I said this was an okay read, but not my favorite. For as much as I disliked Cassidy I expected to dislike the story more.
