Nothing could have prepared her for the man she got to know.
Or the murderous urges he brought out in her.
This was going to be the longest season of her life.

My Rating: 4 stars
Genre Sports Romance | Slow Burn
So many readers have raved about Mariana Zapata’s novels and while it took me a hot minute to actually read one I am so glad I listened to their recommendations. Zapata’s novels are extremely unique and her ability to bring such an epic love to the pages while also slowly building the romance within the story is incredible. I smiled a LOT when I was reading this one and watching the characters grow TOGETHER was an amazing experience for me.
I think one of my biggest dislikes about this book though is how SLOW the romance was. I get it, everyone told me it was slow, but I couldn’t believe the snail pace of the story! I’m not even saying this in a bad way, but it’s important to note that when readers say it’s a slow burn they really mean it. How slow you ask? Well, the book is just about 600 pages, and the romance doesn’t even start until about 460 pages in 😬. I was a tiny bit annoying for me, but when the romance did appear it was pretty impressive! So, I am looking past the lack of romance until the story is almost over because Mariana nailed the ending.
Since this is an older book, I’m not going to make this a long-winded review. I will say though that if you enjoy sports romances where the characters play soccer , a grumpy and slightly unlikable hero, and slow burn romances, then this book is for you! I can’t wait to read another one from her!
