Number ten is plastered on his team jersey and on his ego. In his own mind, Crown Sterling is the shit. He dates the prettiest women, he dominates on the soccer field, he pours money out of his pockets like it’s water. Until a debilitating knee injury puts him out of commission on and off the field. He’s sent to an isolated town in Louisiana to recoup, undergo physical therapy and heal. But it’s when you’re down that you find out who your real friends are, and what they value in you, if anything at all.

All Lyra wants out of life is peace and quiet. She grew up with a regular, everyday family. When she turned sixteen, rummaging through her grandmother’s hope chest in the attic, she discovered a secret that would turn her simple, normal life into a ball of chaos that revolved around her. But while she seems to face her fears head on in her career, she lives a life that’s secure and well hidden.

A new neighbor moved in next door and he’s decided that everyone needs to listen to his rap music, shattering Lyra’s quiet existence. Enraged, she stomps to the next townhouse over and who should open the door but a man whose good looks and charming smile knock her breathless.

How good looking? Just ask him.

How charming? He’ll tell you that too.

The king must be dethroned.

And a small town girl who’s been through hell is just the one to do it.

I received this book for free from The Author in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.


AWESOME BOOK! I loved it! I loved the story! It had such a wonderful story of love. The message was so sweet and refreshing. The characters are very lovable. We start off with Crown, and you’re thinking this guy is a complete ass. But as you get to know him, you can’t help but adore him. Lyra is a sweet heart, you’ll fall in love with her from the start. I don’t want to spoil anything, so I’m not giving any details, but the love story of  Crown and Lyra will just melt your heart. This book is hard to put down once you start it. Great!!!! I’d give this one a million stars if I could!


(4 / 5)

I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

Crown Sterling cares about three things in this world; Crown Sterling, Soccer, and Crown Sterling. He lives for the game and it’s very good at it. If you don’t believe me, just ask him. He’ll be happy to tell you all about Crown Sterling.

“That’s right, ladies and gents, I’m a god in this arena. Shout my name, clap and gasp when I make a brilliant move. Fuel me with your worship.”

When an injury lands him out of his element, down and out in a small town, he has to adjust to being on the road to recovery and face that maybe soccer isn’t the only important thing in life.

“These Louisiana people probably hosed off in the yard.”

Lyra is the sweet girl next door with a dark past. She’s worked hard to make a life of quiet solitude that’s interrupted when a boisterous ego maniac move in next door. I’ll give you three guesses who that might be, and the first two don’t count.

“Crown Sterling was an ass – and he smelled like one too.”

The first three-quarters of the story was a savoring slow ride up to the top of the roller coaster, you can see quite clearly that the drop is right ahead. You’re not sure what’s going to cause it but you know it’s coming!

After that is actually the part I liked the least. Given the backstory I was expecting either for things to get pretty dark, be filled with a bit more drama, or run its course a little longer. It just felt a bit rushed to me. I mean, don’t get me wrong the ending was satisfying, in a wow that cake was great but the icing could have been better. And really that’s the only thing keeping this from hitting 5 stars.
