Catching Summer by L.P. Dover

Book Description

Former nurse Summer Jacobs has seen her fair share of suffering, but she never expected tragedy to hit so close to home. After watching her husband die in the MMA ring, Summer spends the next two years fighting her way through the darkness. The last thing she needs is another hardheaded athlete turning her life upside down. But that's exactly what happens when she meets a gridiron star who's as skilled at stealing hearts as he is at snagging passes.
 
Carolina Cougars wide receiver Evan Townsend usually has no problem winning fans, so he's intrigued when Summer shoots down his go-to plays for winning a woman's attention. Never one to back down from a challenge, Evan turns up the heat, setting off sparks that neither can deny. But as his slow seduction begins to chase away Summer's pain, he gets the feeling that someone is desperate to keep them apart. Now Evan will do anything to protect her—because he never misses a chance to make a perfect catch.

Catching Summer is the sixth book in L.P. Dover's Second Chance series.  Each book can be read as a standalone. This is also the first book I've read by this author and I will definitely read more!

Summer Jacobs is just beginning to think that she can move past the trauma of losing her husband and the violence around his death.  With the help of those close to her, Summer has been able to build a successful restaurant with her sister and brother-in-law.  She also wants to keep her nursing certifications up-to-date.  When her friend, Kate, asks her to help out with the Carolina Cougars for a couple of weeks, she agrees.  And helping out the team puts her in close proximity to Evan Townsend.

When Evan first met Summer two years ago, he wanted to ask her out, but he quickly learned about the death of her husband.  Now she seems to able to move on from her past, and Evan wants to be the man that helps her get to the next step.  He knows that any kind of relationship with Summer will take time, so he offers her his friendship but lets her know that when she is ready for more, he hopes that it will be with him.

But when Summer is finally ready to put the past behind her, someone is determined not to let her move on with Evan.

Catching Summer has a great mix or emotions, heat and a little bit mystery.  I loved how patient Evan was with Summer and how Summer (eventually) gave her everything at her second chance of love.
