Jake McGinnis has the life he has dreamed of since childhood: a professional football career with adoring fans, financial security, and the unwavering support of his family. From the outside looking in, he has everything. 

But nothing could be further from the truth. Because there isn’t a day that goes by that Jake doesn’t think about his first love... and what his world would look like if she was still by his side. When he hears that she is relocating to start a new job less than a mile from him, the pain of their breakup feels fresher than ever. For eight years, he has wondered why their relationship ended and now she's settling in his city. A city that isn't big enough for the two of them.

For Morgan Kelley, moving to Philadelphia means living closer to her family and practicing veterinary medicine with two of her closest friends. It’s also her chance to start over and move on from her failed marriage. There’s only one con: the close proximity to Jake McGinnis. Once upon a time being near him was all she wanted, but now he is practically a stranger... and it's all her fault. Faced with awful memories and the possibility of bumping into him at her favorite coffee shop, Morgan is haunted by the real reason she once broke both of their hearts. Deep down, she knows she won’t be able to embrace this new chapter of her life without finally telling Jake the whole truth. 

But how will he react when she shares her secret? Their love story once felt inevitable, unshakable. Is this where it ends for good, or is it the beginning of a second chance?


“You said you wanted to be friends.” His tone wasn’t sarcastic or cruel, but gruff and needy. “Now tell me what you need.”

Jake’s words melted her, and she felt the last of her resistance drain from her body. “You,” Morgan whispered. She watched her admission take hold of him. His jaw clenched and his breathing became labored. The intensity of his gaze made her wet with desire and she silently begged him to take what had always been his.

“Be certain, Morgan. Because I won’t be able to stop once I taste you again.”

She bit her lip at the desperation in his voice. He needed assurance and she was more than willing to give it to him. Morgan slipped off her sneakers and socks. Her Eagles hoodie and the white t-shirt beneath were next. His eyes didn’t drift to her breasts but remained on her eyes. The lust she saw there, that restless need, was her undoing. She had just undone the button on her jeans when Jake closed the distance between them. He took her face in his hands and smashed his lips against hers. She was struggling for breath when he gave her his. 

He tasted exactly like she remembered. But his body, everything from his ripped abs to his muscular torso, had changed. The last time they were together he had been on the cusp of being the man she knew he would become, the man who was claiming her right now. Needing to feel him against her heated skin, she removed his shirt and pressed her taut nipples against his rock-hard chest as he continued to devour her mouth. Unlike their first time, there was nothing gentle about this encounter. He wasn’t concerned that he would hurt her…he just took. And that was exactly what Morgan needed.

Eight years ago Jake McGinnis had everything he thought he could possibly want in a life; a budding romance with the girl of his dreams, and a promising career waiting for him in the NFL. But then out of the blue the girl he hoped to marry someday walked away from him without really giving him a reason why it was over... and it hurt like hell and has haunted him everyday since. Through the years he has tried to the replace the love he had for her with other women, but not a single one of them came close to measuring up to her, and he isn't so sure anyone ever will. She was a "once in a lifetime kind of girl", and so when he hear's that she is moving back to Philadelphia he decides it's now or never, he is desperate to get her back and will stop at nothing to make it happen. 

Morgan Kelley has been harboring a secret for the last eight years, one that carries a lot of hurtful memories to a past that she can't seem to escape no matter how hard she tries. Once upon a time she had the man of her dreams and an amazing future awaiting both of them, but then things happened and it put that future in jeopardy. So, rather than take him down with her, she set him free, and losing him damn near killed her, but at the time she thought it was for the best for both of them. They have had very little contact since, but that hasn't stopped her heart from hanging onto the feelings that she had for him. Now that she is moving to Philadelphia, and they'll be running in the same circles, she is certain their paths will cross. But not so certain he'll be willing to welcome her with open arms...

Back to the Start is a delightful tale of second chances that will leave your heart overflowing and it's sexy football slinging alpha is certain to put an unshakable smile on your face! I love sports romance stories and I have to say this one definitely scored some serious points with me, it was riddled with emotion, brimming with heartfelt moments, and of course loaded with steamy times to curl the toes! And let's not forget to mention the exquisitely crafted characters, Jake is every readers dream alpha, he was sweet and caring when the moment called for it, and then when things took a steamy turn, he knew take control and get the temperature rising...he was downright swoon-worthy!! I found Morgan to be worthy opponent for Jake, she not only knew how to push Jake's buttons and get all him fired up, but she could also reign him in and bring out his sweet side. Their heated little exchanges, and tender moments definitely made for some entertaining reading!! Highly recommend you take a chance on this one, it sure to touch your heart!!

I requested an advanced copy of this title and I am voluntarily leaving my honest opinion.
