Review: Devon Drake, Cornerback

For this review, I chose Devon Drake, Cornerback.  This is Book #4 in the First & Ten Series.  Book #1 is Griff Montgomery, Quarterback.  Book #2 is Buddy Carruthers, Wide Receiver.  I have read and reviewed Book #2 & 3.  Book #3 is Pete Sebastian, Coach.  I must read book #1. 

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

Here is a brief description from Goodreads:
Devon Drake, star cornerback, has it all: hot super model girlfriend and pro football career, or does he? A childhood friend wanders back into his life, upsetting his ideal existence. Is it finally time to tell her the truth about what happened fifteen years ago?
Stormy Gregory is on the run from an abusive man. Her best friend offers her a safe place at the shelter for abused women and children. Grateful to be out of harm’s way, Stormy helps with a charitable event, not expecting to run into Devon Drake, her friend’s brother. Will she run again rather than face rejection? 
Cracks in his perfect world threaten the cornerback’s starting lineup status. An unwelcome surprise short-circuits Stormy’s attempt to build a new life. Can they pull together or will the secret that separates the former friends keep them on a downward spiral?

I really enjoyed this book, but I thought it did not have enough about Stormy and Devon.  There was a lot of the other characters from the other 3 books.  It was nice to get to know Griff since I have not read that book, but plan to.

Devon and his sister, Sam, have known Stormy since they were kids.  Devon realizes that he should not have lost Stormy like he did and he had the best woman.  Now what will he do?  He is in the middle of training camp.  

I want to know about Sam.  I can not wait to read the next book!

I give this book 4.5 out of 5 stars.
Would I recommend this book? Yes! Author? Yes!
Would I read more from this author? Yes!

Happy Reading!
