Female professional football quarterback MJ Rooney has her eye on the prize, a record-breaking, championship season. Sure, it would be nice to have family support, but she believes in herself, and she has her teammates. That’s all she needs to win … until a scuffle at a baseball game sends her over the railing and onto the field with a concussion that threatens her season.
Dr. Tag Howard isn’t a baseball player like his brothers, but that doesn’t mean he can’t contribute to the game. He’s poised to become Major League Baseball’s go-to sports medicine doctor if he can rehabilitate Gold Glove Centerfielder Grey Kemmons, who happens to be his estranged brother. It’s a lot to take … until an unorthodox angel crashes into his life with a concussion and a fresh perspective.
MJ doesn’t need a man. She needs a championship ring. Getting messed up with a sexy, doctor and his family baggage isn’t going to get her there. But the attraction is undeniable, and there’s surprising freedom from expectations in each other’s arms … until Tag’s brothers want a reunion that requires him to own up to his ugly past, and MJ’s season teeters amidst the distractions. Would life apart be easier?
*I received this book free from Barclay Publicity in exchange for an honest review*
Tag has abandonment issues and honestly who can blame him. He’s resentful and untrusting, but sometimes the past is the window to the future. He has two wonderful brothers and all he needs to do is to open up a little and let them back into his life. But that’s not the only thing he has going on, there’s also the beautiful girl with a concussion who keeps popping into his life.
The only thing MJ wants to focus on is football. With the season just starting the last thing she needs is a concussion that could cost her valuable play time or a man who drives her emotions all over the place and her game down the drain.
Tag and MJ don’t exactly run in the same circles, but they do have a lot in common. Sometimes you find what you’re looking for when you least expect it and in the most unlikely of places. Heal My Heart is a sweet love story about going all in and risking everything.
I enjoyed the fact MJ was a quarterback. There aren’t many stories with women football players and the fact that she fell for a team doctor was a nice touch…especially since it wasn’t her team’s doctor.
My Favorite Moment: The ending… That was one hell of a game celebration!
