Charlotte Nilsen never thought she’d see McCoy again after he hit the big time in the NFL. After all, she’s the one who insisted on an annulment after his scandal with the cheerleader.
She’s rebuilt her life now. Her one regret is she never told McCoy their brief marriage resulted in a son.
McCoy Armstrong has been benched. A shoulder injury will do that to an NFL quarterback. Enough time has passed that he dares to hope that his ex-wife Charlotte will forgive the follies of his youth. When he arrives home in Getaway Bay, he finds Charlotte living next door and his house destroyed by a storm.
No amount of money, even a billionaire’s entire bank account, can buy a spouse’s trust. He must find another way.
Is this injured quarterback strong enough to rebuild everything he has broken and reclaim everything he has lost?
The Clean Billionaire Beach Club series is by multiple authors. The individual books may be read in any order.
Rating: Mild+. Mild kissing; mild sensuality.
Bad decisions made by both McCoy and Charlotte 12 years earlier deprive them of those 12 years together and change the course of their lives and the lives of people around them. Those decisions were triggered by a selfish horrible excuse for a human but still made by them. I was kind of impressed that even though these characters can see what they missed out on in those 12 years they don’t really dwell on that. They both want to move forward from where they are instead of focusing on their losses. I also liked the family closeness in a non-traditional situation.
I had moments when I wanted to scream at someone during the crisis part of the story because that woman was truly evil and it appeared that McCoy was going to be really dumb for a while. With all his money, why did he not have a publicist to help him through junk like her? Glad he finally stumbled into a way to resolve that situation.
A little Christian theme.
Sex: no, mild innuendo
Language: only in my mind when the evil chick showed up- ha
