Forward Passes is about this mega-sports star, Tyler Harris, who is said to be the best quarterback in the NFL -- and the hottest. He's won two superbowls in two years, and he's in his prime. Except for some reason, he's losing his touch with the game. After his uncle dies, he goes to San Juans to find he's been left a broken down mansion. Here he finds more than just a mansion as he meets Lavender Mead -- his next door neighbor who has sworn off all jocks due to her father who abandoned her family for his love of the game of football.
I absolutely loved this story. Being a romance, it was steamy and had me falling for Tyler. But the thing I didn't expect it to have was depth. The story was very well developed and in something that could have turned out predictable and cliche was surprisingly heartwarming and complex. I really liked all the aspects of the story that kept you entertained. Both characters were well developed and had pasts that were different and intriguing. I'd have to say though, my favorite character ended up being the cat. He was so sassy!! Definitely someone I would get along with.
The world of San Juans was so disconnected that it really made you want to go there and exile yourself for some peace. I became extremely jealous of the type of world they got to live in so cut off from everything. I liked the growth that both main characters went through and I think their location attributed to it a lot.
Both of their voices were funny and entertaining. I liked their character quirks and I liked the story a lot. I definitely think that you guys should check it out because Forward Passes is a really enjoyable story! This is the second one, Tyler's story, and the first one was Derek's I believe. You don't need to read Derek's to read this one (although I'm really thinking of doing it!!). I really loved the writing style.
