In book five of Love by the Yard: When Chicago Grizzlies’ defensive end, Declan Parker, has a career making play—it never crosses his mind it could be his last one on the field. But once Deck is rushed to the trauma unit at a local emergency room, the play turns out to be only one of the changes to affect his life.
Cardiothoracic surgical resident, Dr. Leeda “Lee-Lee” Jackson, scoffed when she was called in for an orthopedic case. Only the EKG told her the patient had more going on than a broken leg. Staring down at the patient struggling for air, she couldn’t help seeing her brother, Xavier. Determined to do whatever she could to get the man back on the field, Lee-Lee sets out to do what she does best.
Declan knows if his full condition is released to the Grizzlies, everything he’s ever worked toward will be lost. Not ready to put that part of his life away, he plans to do whatever it takes, and the sexy doctor is the first step.
In football, if you’re not cheating—you’re not trying. An encroachment penalty is only a five yard penalty if you get caught. However, what’s going on between the doctor and patient, could cost Declan and Lee-Lee everything they have achieved in life.
Is their attraction more than a passing flirtation? Or will more than one heart need repaired when it is over?
Review by Twinsie Angie
I purchased the book/audio whisper snyc off Amazon.
Ok so the narration for this book is yet again amazing. Logan is the best at his job. I admit I am being super picky with my male narration voices anymore. Logan has crept his way to the top for me. He does a great job varying voices for the characters and what I love the most, his female voices don’t sound squeaky and high pitched.
Lee-Lee…sis!! You know I fell in love with your sassy fire attitude in your brothers’ book and now I get to see you up close and personal. Lee-Lee has been under plastic bubble wrap from her overprotective but ever-loving brother. He makes sure to chase ALL THE BOYS away but when Declan comes around, this MAN will not be swayed.
Declan is living life as a Grizzle when a broken ankle takes him to the ER. When the sex doctor rolls in he is stunned that she is also super smart. This is just the kind of women he can get on board with. Then he realizes she hold his career in his hand so he was a total DB and thought he would wine and dine the doctor to get releases. When he starts to love her, he is just as floored as the rest of the crew that he fell in love.
Lee-Lee has a plan. She has a goal. Yes Declan checks off the boxes but she will not be swayed away form her dream job at the dream hospital. Thankfully, Declan makes her realize she can have more then just a career and have it with him if she just takes a chance.
The story begins to unfold, and a few issues get in the couple’s way like a jealous rival for her affection, a job change, and miscommunication. I gotta say I loved how everything ended and how she was able to kick Declan’s older brother’s butt in to gear! But now my eye is on Declan’s other brother for what life holds for him!!
