Title- Buddy Carruthers, Wide Receiver
Series- First & Ten #2
By- Jean C. Joachim
Genre- Sports Romance
Known for his record-breaking stats and womanizing ways, wide receiver, Buddy Carruthers, would give it all up for one chance to win the only woman he ever wanted, Emmy Meacham. Hard-won games, and traveling half the season kept Buddy from pursuing his secret passion. Even if he managed to corner her for a moment, would she still care?
Now a rock star known as Emerald, Emmy lived her life on the road with no time for love. In her dreams, she longed to turn back the clock and spend another night with Buddy. But lies and deceit had kept them apart for five years. Would a chance meeting wash away those years or cause old wounds to resurface? Could two lives traveling in opposite directions make room for love or would they continue to spin, out of sync, and always alone?

Buddy still wants Emmy, but thinks that she dumped him. Emmy still wants Buddy, but thinks he dumped her. Emerald the singing sensation, (Buddy’s Emmy) has Stash, her manager. He handles every aspect of her life, it is just easier that way, or is it. Seems as though maybe Stash is as responsible for her misfortunes as her stalker again makes her fear for her life and all those in it.
I wasn’t as thrilled with this book, it seemed to be a little sophomoric, with Buddy and Emmy coming off more like high school students than adults at times. But was a well written, well thought out book, I can find no fault with the writing. I will still recommend it and want to read the next in the series as it does pull at my imagination. Again, I thank Jean C. Joachim for allowing me to read and review for her. Four stars for Buddy Carruthers.
