Review: Buddy Carruthers, Wide Receiver

For this review, I chose Buddy Carruthers, Wide Receiver by Jean C. Joachim.  Book #2 of the First and Ten Series.  Book #1 is called Griff Montgomery, Quarterback, which I have not read, but plan to.

I received a copy of the ebook for a honest review of this book.

Here is a brief description from Goodreads:
Known for his record-breaking stats and womanizing ways, wide receiver, Buddy Carruthers, would give it all up for one chance to win the only woman he ever wanted, Emmy Meacham. Hard-won games, and traveling half the season kept Buddy from pursuing his secret passion. Even if he managed to corner her for a moment, would she still care?
Now a rock star known as Emerald, Emmy lived her life on the road with no time for love. In her dreams, she longed to turn back the clock and spend another night with Buddy. But lies and deceit had kept them apart for five years. Would a chance meeting wash away those years or cause old wounds to resurface? Could two lives traveling in opposite directions make room for love or would they continue to spin, out of sync, and always alone?
Caution: Locker room language
A snippet from the book:
“Wow. That was worth every penny.”
“Knew you’d like it.” She strutted back and forth in front of him.
“I love it. Now take it off.”
Emmy crawled up the mattress like a panther. “You take it off.”
Buddy let out a low growl and reached for her.

I love Jean Joachim's books.  I really loved this book.  It is a sweet romance with challenges to overcome with both Buddy and Emmy.  

Emmy has always wanted to be a rock star, but she feels like something is missing.  I love these 2 quotes from the book below.  What would you do for your one true love?  Would you leave behind something you have wanted your entire life (ie career) or do you just go for it?  
"Still, she hungered for something else.  Something more." (Ebook page 85)
"He was the symbol of what she was missing, her one true love."

There was something that did not sit with me about Stash.  I am not sure what it is.  But, I think he was too possessive of Emmy.

I would definitely read more by Jean!!

I give this book 5 out of 5 stars.
Would I recommend this book? Yes! Author? Yes!
Would I read more from this author? Yes!

Happy Reading!
