Review: Line of Scrimmage by Marie Force

loscoverPublisher: Sourcebooks
Release date: Sept 1, 2008

He’ll do anything to win her back, if only it’s not too late.

Susannah is ten days away from a finalized divorced, and she’s planning a wedding. You could say she was moving on with her life. Seeing Ryan Sanderson, her football, superstar soon-to-be ex, on her doorstep is the last person she expects a visit from. Especially, while entertaining her fiance and future inlaws. Far from an opportune time, but Ryan never navigated in the normal way.

It appears her biggest heartache isn’t in any hurry to leave, and he casually drops his calculated bomb…“We’ve got ten more days as Mister and Missus, and we’re going to spend them together.” The alternative being a long, legal battle and Susannah doesn’t have the emotional energy, or Ryan’s wealth to beat him at his own game.

A bargain made in desperation, turns out to be the biggest challenge of their lives. Susannah doesn’t expect old memories to surface, hadn’t they walked away from this marriage?

Ryan knows exactly what he wants. A year without his wife led him here, and he isn’t leaving until Susannah understands what he wants most…her.

Marie’s debut novel is wonderful! I was captured on the first page, and her characters are bigger than life. The emotional tug-of-war between two people who loved deeply but lost, takes you to the core in matters of the heart. Marie does a marvelous job leading you to the edge, and back again. So buckle up for a fun ride!

I look forward to Marie’s second novel, Same Time Sunday, a spring 2009 release from Sourcebooks. Marie will be our Sept. Debut Author interview, so join us at Magical on the 18th to meet this talented author and read about her journey.
