A broken football star becomes the trainer to an elite female athlete who can’t decide if she should tell off the flirty billionaire or fall in love with him.
Cambree Kinley is the toughest chick she knows, except when it comes to protecting her heart. Yet how can she resist the billionaire superstar Emmett Hawk? When he pursues her—treating her like gold and making her smile nonstop, only sheer grit can keep her from sprinting toward the Cinderella route again—loving a high-falutin’ man who will dump her like moldy garbage when she offends his high-society friends and family.
Emmett Hawk is more than a rich football player—he’s a celebrity, the face of the Hawk Family fortune, and practically his own high-end brand. When he blows his knee out and can’t play the game he loves, he starts an elite fitness camp where he meets an intriguing woman who is brutally honest. Emmett falls for Cambree but she’s holding back her heart.
Emmett won’t force her to love him but their fierce determination to compete keeps bringing them together, despite Cambree’s best intentions.
Romance with a lot of kissing scenes. The book is aptly named as the groom was indeed very determined in life and love. Cambree is a very kind and genuine person. I liked them. Their relationship moves super fast but it is a short book so things gotta go quickly.
The book has a brief attempted rape scene. It states the guy would be charged with attempted rape but then nothing else happens with it. I kept waiting for some mention of her having to go to court or speak with a lawyer or something but it didn’t happen so it kinda bugged me because I didn’t stop thinking about the situation. Continuing that aspect of the story wasn’t necessary to the plot and might have dragged down the pace of the book perhaps but it still bugged me.
