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?
“The wealthy but dysfunctional Harrison family returns in rising star Gracen’s second installment of her dynamic series. Families can be difficult and have a huge impact on the way relationships are perceived. Gracen’s newest protagonists have been burned badly and are relationship-shy for different reasons. Infusing the story with warmth and compassion ensures that readers are engaged and enchanted with this tale!” – RT Book Reviews, 4 Stars
“Gracen’s second Harrison contemporary (after More Than You Know) is an engaging romance between a disgraced soccer star and the hometown sweetheart he unexpectedly falls for. Pierce Harrison is the wild child in his wealthy family. Accused of sleeping with the wife of his soccer-team owner, he leaves the U.K. in disgrace and heads back to his Long Island hometown. Abby McCord is a grade school teacher, doting aunt, and owner of a thoroughly broken heart. At first, Abby is reluctant to give Pierce any sort of a chance. But once Pierce falls in love with her, he decides he’ll do anything to make himself into the man she wants him to be. Feisty Abby is a universal heroine, full of hope and doubts; Pierce is a deeply damaged soul whose father has taught him he’s not worth fighting for. A cast of strong supporting characters add charm. This installment will whet readers’ appetites for the next Harrison siblings romance, whether it’s the tale of Pierce’s vulnerable sister, Tess, or his straitlaced brother, Charles.” —Publishers Weekly
