Publisher's Summary

Sixteen years is a long time. In a marriage, it’s a milestone. On the gridiron, it’s a miracle. Reed Johnson wants more time for everything, but time is funny that way.  

It can be cruel.  

With a body that can’t quite take the hits it used to and a heart tired of being torn in two different directions, Reed is faced with a reality he’s not quite ready for - life without the game. He became a man under Friday night game lights and in college stadium tunnels, and without the grit and the glory that’s earned 10 yards at a time, he’s afraid of what kind of man he’ll be.  

But there’s more than a game at stake now.  

Reed’s wife, Nolan, is afraid, too. She’s seen what can happen when the love of her life pushes himself too hard, and she can’t escape the nightmares she relives after almost losing her entire world to one single play on the field.  

There is no compromise when it comes to football. Same goes for the heart. You’re either all in, or you get crushed. For Reed and Nolan, the clock is ticking down. Time...it does that. One way or another, they’re going to have to make a choice.  

This is their hail Mary.  

This is win or lose.

The perfect ending to an awesome series

I loved this series so much. Some parts were absolutely devastating, but most were wonderful. I really liked that Ginger went into this last book showing that even though they were married and loved each other and they seemed to have that fairytale romance, their marriage wasn’t perfect. Although, Reed and Nolan were irritating at times, I found myself wanting to shout “just communicate and all your problems will go away!!!” I really loved all of the characters. I’m really glad I got into this and I’m eager to listen to more of what Ginger Scott has to offer.

Marriage isn't easy!

I love that Ginger Scott gave us a realistic look at marriage. It always irks me because people just think marriage is easy and you don't have to work for it. That is so totally wrong. Marriage is hard. You have to be willing to put the work into it or there is no reason to try. I loved seeing Nolan and Reed as adults and working through a marriage with problems. I enjoyed the progression of the entire trilogy. The narration was done very well. I'm always so happy when the book has a dual POV and used the necessary person in narration.

Finally

I thought this was the best of the series Nolan and Reid finally acted like grown-ups most of the time and came together when they needed to. Loved the ending and Epilogue

So entirely full of heart.

First, I have to say that I love the structure of this series. It's not one that I've read many times (or maybe ever?) before, progressing from YA to NA to Adult romance in each book. But it works so well.

Of all 3 books, I think this one was the most deeply emotional, the most thoughtful. It showed the MCs as being more than themselves, but being parents and part of a connected community, dealing with the past and the future and trying to make it through the present. It's definitely kind of philosophical, but not at the expense of a damn good story.

I have to admit. I'm really invested in these characters, and this is one of those stories where it's gonna be hard to say goodbye. But I'm glad I dug this series out of my TBR. It was definitely worth the read.

Absolutely loved this series

I have always wanted a series that takes you across the entire life of the characters. Covering their ups and downs in their lives. This series was absolutely lovely. I had the moments where I sat swearing at the stupid things that they did but these stupid things showed how people truly are in real life. We do things without thinking.

I loved this series.

My only complaint is that it’s over and I’m going to miss the characters! I found it entertaining and relatable. I haven’t enjoyed a series this much in awhile.
