Pierce Harrison--yes, that Pierce Harrison, black sheep of the wealthy Harrison clan--has come home to his family's luxurious Long Island compound.
The big question is why the dangerously sexy soccer star agreed to coach a kids' soccer team. His co-coach Abby McCord should be grateful. Instead she's fending off some seriously smoldering advances from the scandal-ridden athlete. Good thing bad boys are so not her type . . .
Abby is definitely not lacking in passion, but the sweet-faced beauty needs to learn a thing or two about taking a team to the championship--and a whole lot about how to let a man into her once-broken heart.
Pierce definitely knows how to make the moves, but will Abby trust that the bachelor the world has condemned as a scoundrel can settle down with the one woman who has taken hold of his heart?
I am a bit conflicted by this story. I liked some of the parts of it, but the ones I didn't like, where kind of a big deal, for me, so don't know what to think. But here's my thoughts..
Abby and Pierce have a connection, it is believable, and the attraction is obvious, on both sides. I had hard time connection with Abby, though. I think she is judgemental, and very stuck with her own preconceived opinion.
Some of the dialog was awkward, it was missing the flow, and it felt forced. I usually don't even talk about language on my reviews, because if there's bad language, it has to fit, and if it fits, then all is okay, it is part of the story. But this story has a lot of bad language, and every single time, it stood out, like out of place. I really have doubts a teacher would be using the kind of expressions, as often, as Abby is in the story. Just didn't fit.
The family Pierce grew up in, and has to live with, is something from the nightmares. There's a heartbreaking scene in the story from a party, that brings up a conflict, and severe angst. The redemption that comes from the conflict saved a lot of the story for me. The ending brings it together, and because of it, I was able to give this tale
