Mercy by Julianna Marley is NOW AVAILABLE!
That’s all Liam Walsh knows how to do and if he were being honest, all he was ever really good at. Dedicating his entire life to the game has taken him to some pretty remarkable places and in less than twelve seconds it had also brought him within inches of his life. Taking a careless approach to his recovery hasn’t exactly been the best game plan he’d ever conjured up, but that didn’t mean management had to send an overbearing, spitfire assistant to get him back on the field. Certainly not one who favored stilettos and fine lingerie.
Emme McGovern believes in two things: Jesus and really good football.
An assistant on a national football team, she is constantly surrounded by men who think they can do her job better. Which is why she isn’t in the least bit surprised that the fate of her future now rests in the hands of a cranky, stubborn, arrogant football player on injured reserve. When Emme is offered an opportunity to make history, landing her and her Louboutin’s on Liam’s door step, what she finds isn’t just some football player. She doesn’t find a warm reception, either.
With the clock winding down, Emme is determined to piece Liam back together, but as their long days turn into even longer nights, the game no longer becomes about promotions or a comeback story, but a matter of life or death. Will their time together have them laying it all on the field for their future? Or will it send them both running and begging for mercy?

When not writing about all the places she yearns to be, she can be found enjoying obnoxious amounts of coffee and getting bossed around by her children. Julianna loves romance, humor and football.
From an very early age Liam Walsh fell in love with the game of football, and lucky for him it was something that he excelled at, and before long it was all he wanted to do with his life... become a pro football player. He worked hard, played ball at all levels, and was lucky enough to find a team in the big leagues, by all intents and purposes, he is living that childhood dream. But then in the blink of an eye it was all gone, one hit and one devastating injury, and now he is completely lost and close to spiraling out of control. In his mind all he can think is that it's over, his hip will never quite be the same, he'll never compete at the level he was before. So, he drowns himself in pity and painkillers, and gives up on repairing the injury. And that sends off little red flags to his teammates and team owner. They aren't about to let him give up, so they send the one person they are certain can whip him back into shape... their best weapon, Emme McGovern.
The moment Emme comes breezing through Liam's front door his jaw not only hits the floor, but his patience starts to dissipate, no way in heck is he letting some woman come in and micromanage him! She begins to bark orders, force him to attend therapy, and lay out ultimatums. He knows some of what she is saying is true, but he is not a man to take orders, so it's in his nature to fight her at every turn. But the more he is around her, the more his resistance starts to slip and before long the unwavering alpha male is buckling to her commands, and losing his heart every step of the way too!
This one was a killer on my heart, watching Liam struggle to find his way after his injury, and failing, was tough to take. It was heartbreaking to watch him realize the one thing he loved the most was slipping away from him, and he couldn't do a darn thing about it. But I also thoroughly enjoyed watching Emme storm into his life, and whip him back into shape. He was as alpha as they come, but she was a force to be reckoned with, and he tried his darnedest to fight her, but his resistance was futile to her beautiful eyes and killer smile! This was such a wonderful addition to the series, it came with Ms. Marley's trademark wit and her heartfelt words, but her sexy wounded alpha really sealed the deal for him, Liam brought so much life, and steam, to the pages! Once I met him I just couldn't bring myself to walk away until I knew he found his happily ever after. If you are a sports romance fan I highly suggest you take a chance on this one, it comes brimming with heat and heart... and much, much, more!
