What does a gal have to do to get a good date in this town?
Adele Harris can't even begin to answer that question. She's had so many lousy dates that she's sure she's cursed. Why else would every man she goes out with suddenly act like he's lost his mind—and his manners? Adele thought life couldn't get any more confusing . . . until she learns the marriage of her seemingly Miss Perfect sister is on the rocks. So she goes back to their hometown to give her a shoulder to cry on, only to run smack into Zach Zemaitis . . . the one who got away.
Texans love God, family, and football, though not always in that order
Zach, a former pro star, knows all about football. As for the other two, well, he's doing his best. But when Adele comes charging back into his life—still all lush curves and beautiful, big blue eyes—he wonders if his best is good enough. After all, he did her wrong. Can a woman with her track record ever really believe that he's serious this time . . . or is he destined to be another bad date?
I really enjoyed this book. It was very easy to follow and easy to fall in love with the characters.
Adele comes back to her old childhood neighborhood because of her sister who sort of has a family emergency. She dreads returning because she is afraid to bump into her first love Zac.
Zac and Adele met in college and it was a connection immediately. They kicked it off and Adele found herself in love in less than a month. Zac was her first everything. Unfortunately things did not work out between them and Adele moved on and started her life in another state.
Of course when she gets back to her hometown fate has other plans for her. Zac is some how thrown back into her life and Zac is willing and ready to finish what they started years ago.
This was a very funny and exciting story. I loved the relationship between Zac and Adele. Zac was just Mr. Steamy to me and I wish was Adele a couple of times while reading this book LOL. Hot and Sexy football player, who wouldn't want to be her? LOL
This is the third book by Rachel Gibson I have read and I have to say I really like her writing. This was a very good read and I recommend it.
