Review: Harley Brennan, Running Back

For this review, I chose Harley Brennan, Running Back by Jean C. Joachim. 

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

Here is a brief description from Goodreads:
Harley Brennan and Shyla Hollings agreed to part company to follow their careers. It was a mutual decision. The star running back had no problem getting dates, but never the right dates. After one year spent trying to replace the only woman he’d ever loved, he declared defeat. Until the reality TV show, Marriage Minded, approached him. 
Harley flew to L.A. after the Super Bowl, ready to find his new soul mate. Bumping into Shyla at the airport didn’t give him a clue that she’d be behind the scenes, designing the sets for the program. And she didn’t tell him. Was Fate playing a hand, bringing them together? If so, Harley had to admit, Fate had lousy timing.
Convinced his life was heading for a touchdown, Harley’s confidence was high, until his luck ran out. Would the running back get knocked out of the game or sprint to victory? 
A unique combination of reality TV show surprises, football action, humor, and steamy love scenes, HARLEY BRENNAN, RUNNING BACK, will keep you guessing until the last scene.

This is book #7 of the First and Ten Series.  
Book #1- Griff Montgomery, Quarterback
Book #2-Buddy Carruthers, Wide Receiver
Book #3- Pete Sebastian, Coach
Book #4-Devon Drake, Cornerback
Book #5-Sly "Bullhorn" Brodsky, Offensive Line
Book #6-Al "Trunk" Mahoney, Defensive Line

It was great to be with the guys again.  They just won the Super Bowl and life was good!  But, Harley wants wants a life like some of his team mates- a wife and kids.  Harley has met the woman he wanted to marry, but Shyla chose her career.  Did Shyla make a mistake?  Is Harley the "one"?  Shyla takes a job working on the designs for the reality TV Show, Marriage Minded, and the man looking for a wife is Harley.  Shyla thinks she can do this show and be behind the scenes and Harley would never know.  So many emotions!  I could feel for both Shyla and Harley.  I am not sure I could do what Shyla did, work on a set design where the man you love/loved is the one to get a wife.  Could you?

I give this book 5 out of 5 stars.
