Both have what she wants … but only one has what she needs.
Working with professional athletes and helping them recover from their injuries has always been Kate Townsend’s dream, but after an accident left her scarred and heartbroken years ago she refuses to let what happened in her past happen again. Staying focused is the key, as well as not letting her feelings interfere with her job … no matter the circumstances. All of that is easier said than done when not only one, but two men crave her healing touch, igniting every single desire she’s denied herself for so long.
Cooper Davis, NFL’s star quarterback and most eligible bachelor, packs up and leaves his home to move across the states to the East Coast after an injury results in the embarrassing trade to another team. Bitter from the pain, he deals with his problems through drugs and alcohol—almost ruining his football career—until he meets the one woman who makes him want to feel; the same woman who refuses to give up on him no matter how many times he screws up. He has to have her, and he’s not going to stop until he makes her his. Especially, now that someone else threatens to take her away.
Motocross champion and local bad boy Luke Collins never takes no for an answer. For the past four months he’s used his charms to get what he wants, and now he’s so close to getting the girl of his dreams … if she’ll give in just once. One time is all he needs, and he’s never been known to fail, but he’s also never had to fight for a woman’s affections. Only one man will win their way into Kate’s heart, but which one will intercept the other and take what they want? Which one will she choose?

"I love you, Kate," he murmured in my ear.  "I never thought it was possible to love someone so much."  Keeping up her pace and clenching her body tight all around me, she shook her head and let the tears fall.  "Nothings wrong, everything actually feels right.  For once I feel ... complete."  These have to be two of my favorite lines from this book... you can just feel the emotions in them.

Now as for the book... we meet Kate as she is getting ready to move into the next stage of her career path which is graduating and finishing her medical degree.  She has just accepted a job as a physician with Carolina's football team, which her bother plays on as well.  Unfortunately her world is shifted upside down when she goes over to her then boyfriends house and discovers him dead.  She could not understand why he would commit suicide because she was moving and how could he do this right now.  Left completely torn apart from this even two years later Kate is still trying to recover, and feels that she is not worthy of finding love again.

Cooper has hit rock bottom.  The only team willing to take a chance on him in the NFL is that of Carolina which his Uncle Joel coaches.  Not having any other choice Cooper leaves California and moves to Carolina to start the next chapter of his life and to try and leave the demons in California behind.  What he doesn't expect is to meet the one person who will change his life for the better, but can he prove to her that he is nothing like what the papers has presented him as?

I am a sucker for a good romance story.  Through in my love of sports and it could not be a more perfect combination.  Kate and Cooper have both been dealt blows in their lives that have all but knocked their feet out from under them.  Not willing to give up and both prepared for a fight of wills, they help each other through some of the most difficult moments that they can face.  Because of the support that they give one another, with emotions running high, they both find themselves in a positions of not knowing how to deal with their feelings.  This is one of the parts that pulls you into this book.  Add to the suspense of who is actually trying to tear them apart and the fact that Luke, Kate's brothers best friend, wants Kate's attention and affection as well and you have one hell of a story.  This is one of those stories where it just goes to show that the heart will win over mind ever time.  I love the way L.P. Dover writes her athletes and their girls. I can honestly say that yes this is a book that I will pick up and read over and over again, just because it gives me the warm and fuzzy's. If you want a book that is light and just fun to read then this is a book for you.  It is four bar worthy for sure.  Nicely written Mrs. Dover.
