Meet Graham Tettersaw, former star quarterback. He blew his first shot at success, but now he has a second chance at playing football . . . and at having a life.Graham’s not about to squander this new opportunity with a rising team. No way. They’re about to make his dreams come true, even If they did just add a weird clause that he’s supposed to pretend some random chick is his girlfriend.
Teams can be weird about stuff. But Graham can play along. After all, it’s all about forward progress.
In football, getting the ball down the field and scoring is goal number one. Life isn’t all that much different. That’s why Graham is hoping to do some scoring of his own off the field. Especially when he finds out the pretend girlfriend the team has picked out for him, Eden Vetterly, is beyond hot.
But it’s not all about sex.
Graham really likes Eden.
And she likes him too—a lot.
Too bad the team just changed all the rules.
Forward Progress is the first book in the new Men of Fall series, where football meets romance.
“I’ve read a lot of fake girlfriend/boyfriend romances, but Forward Progress stood out amongst them all to me.” – Cranky – The Book Curmudgeon
“This was a great start to the series and I cannot wait to see what S.R.Grey has in store for the Men of Fall.” – Erin Lewis
“Sweetness overload with some wonderful swoon and drama to keep you on your toes come together in this sexy football romance!” – Red Hatter Book Blog
Football was Graham’s life until an injury not only derailed his career but his life. He has been given a second chance however the fallout from his past still lingers. His new team worried about his reputation so when one of the conditions is a fake girlfriend although he is not enthused by the idea he is not about to squander this opportunity.
Eden is doing her best as she supports her 16 year old brother but working as a waitress is not going to pay for the art school he was accepted to. When she is approached with the opportunity to pretend to be Graham’s girlfriend, she is willing to do it for her brother.
As they spend time together their relationship is no longer pretend but what happens when the very thing that brought them together is trying to tearthem apart?
I really enjoyed these two together. Graham is determined not to repeat the mistakes of the past while Eden is only trying to do what’s best for her brother and they are a perfect match. This is a great start to a new series.
