Sometimes love takes balls.
A very sweet, sexy contemporary romance that I throughly enjoyed. It’s just the lovely HEA tale that Louisa Masters writes so well that it feels easy and the story flows so smoothly from start to finish.
There are peripheral characters that form a cohesive group of friends garnered from other stories in this series. That’s a great element as we love getting to interact with all of them again, depending where u are in reading the Met His Match stories.
The main characters of Simon Wood, retired footballer ( that soccer for us in the US) and Lucian Morel are very well crafted, each fascinating on their own and beautiful when drawn together as a couple. Especially when facing obstacles and life challenges.
There’s a wonderful center theme of a charity to help underprivileged children obtain their goals which I appreciated and thought was well executed.
All in all, a great sweet romance in a contemporary series you might want to put on your TBR list!
Met His Match Stories:
A Christmas Chance
Between the Covers
Synopsis:Taking on his next challenge. His plan for a charity to provide funding for underprivileged children to pursue football as a career has passed its first hurdle: he has backers and an executive consultant. Now it’s time to get the ball rolling.
Lucien Morel, heir to the multibillion-euro Morel Corporation, is shocked—and thrilled—to learn his father has volunteered him as consultant to a fledgling football charity. Better yet, the brains behind it all is heartthrob Simon Wood, his teenage idol and crush.
Although Simon and Lucien get off on the wrong foot, it’s not long before they’re getting along like a house on fire—sparks included.
But with the charity under public scrutiny, can their romance thrive?
