Emerson

Everyone thinks they know who I am. I’m that reality TV star that fell in love with co-star Wesley Rich. But reality wasn’t my life. It was the life I lived in front of the cameras.
A life designed to entertain millions of watchers each Monday night.

It only took one night to relive my past, and one night to forget my future. With someone who had been there all along.

Logan

Soccer is my life—it’s in my blood.
I train hard, I play hard, and I win.  Nothing will break my focus.

I should have been able to avoid it, resist the temptation. But it’s there, playing every Monday night, an obsession I can’t seem to shake.

And I don’t know what was harder: hiding it from my best friend, or watching the woman I want live a life with someone else.

Excerpt

“You honestly believe all that rubbish? Falling in love? They knew from the start? C’mon. It’s impossible,” I ramble to myself as Logan quietly stands at the edge. “You can spend a whole lifetime knowing someone and still feel unsure if the love is there. Two minutes in a bar and that person is your soulmate? Ludicrous.”

Logan turns his neck, body following until we’re facing each other. His presence radiates with superiority, just like when we were kids. I wasn’t afraid back then and I am not afraid now. His tough-guy persona doesn’t frighten me one bit.

“Hypocritical coming from someone engaged to a man that swore he fell in love with you the moment he saw you?” he questions, sarcasm lacing every word that left his mouth.

The shock of his words cripples my ability to respond with a witty comeback. We weren’t having a good ol’ laugh throwing worms in the bottom of Ash’s school bag anymore. And my initial reaction to his cruel words does nothing to calm the sea of emotions ravaging inside me. Logan Carrington was one of them. They all came from the same seed. The seed of men that felt entitled. Screw women, move on, fuck feelings and repeat.

“Knock, knock . . . anyone home?”

“You’re a jerk,” I mutter.

★★★★★ Five Stars

I loved this book. Emerson is a tv reality star that's engaged to co star Wesley and is used to having her life dictated to her by her team. Living her life in front of the cameras is harder and more scripted than it looks and she's growing to dislike it. On a rare trip back home, she spends some time with her brother and their childhood friend Logan. Growing up the three of them were always together and up to mischief and I loved how they were when they were back together. I liked the family dynamics in this book. Emerson family reacts like my own would probably do and I loved the close bond she shares with her mum.

Professional footballer Logan comes across as a bit of a man whore but he does have a heart in there somewhere. When Emerson gets some shocking news, Logan is there to help take her mind off it. With a love hate relationship, thousands of miles between them and Emersons personal life imploding, the last thing she needs is this new sexual chemistry between them.

I've read all Kat T Masens other books and the one thing that I love about Kat's characters is that they're real. They have flaws and bad habits just like we do. They make mistakes and you're not going to like them all the time. There's going to be times you get frustrated, when you roll your eyes, when you want to shake some sense into them. And that's what makes it so much easier to connect with them.

If you've read Kats previous books there are some familiar faces that pop up briefly and one hell of a jaw dropping bombshell that floored me. It played on my mind all the way through this book and I'm still not sure how I feel about that just been thrown in there (I'm torn between not been surprised because it's Kat and she likes to do the unpredictable and wanting to be slightly stalkerish until I get more details).
