One kiss can change everything.
Fun and flirty Monica Stevens lives for chocolate, fashion, and boys … in that order. And she doesn’t take life too seriously, especially when it comes to dating. When a night of innocent banter with Seattle’s hottest NFL quarterback turns passionate, she fears that everything she once managed to protect will soon be destroyed.
Seattle’s most eligible bachelor, Zachary Ryan, is a workaholic by nature, an undercover entrepreneur, and passionate about the organizations he supports. He’s also addicted to Monica, the curvy brunette with a sassy mouth—and not just because she tastes like strawberries and chocolate. She’s as challenging as she is decadent, as witty as she is charming, and she’s the perfect distraction from the daily grind.
While Monica comes to a crossroads in her life, Zachary becomes an unavoidable obstacle, forcing her to stop hiding under the bleachers and confront the demons of her past. But as their connection grows stronger, she knows it only brings them closer to their end.
It’s time to let go.
To have a future, we must first deal with our pasts. But what if the two are connected?
*** I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review ***
After reading and absolutely loving K. K Allen’s previous book Up in the Treehouse I was excited to get stuck into Under the Bleachers and just like Up in the Treehouse this book didn’t disappoint
“When There’s Chemistry There’s a Way”
Monica and Zachary’s story was an emotional read, and I was hooked from the very first page. I liked Monica, who was sassy, funny, creative, and independent. As for Zach well, what can I say loved him such a gentleman who knows what he wants. He saw something in Monica and wouldn’t give up on, and l adored the way he was with her. Both had been through heartbreaks in their past that had left a lasting effect, especially Monica.
“Zachary Ryan is a fairytale. And I don’t believe in those.”
“She’s fighting so hard to keep me away from her heart, but she knows she’ll lose.”
I adored the connection and the romance between them. Theses two shared some emotional and tense scene together, and wow I didn’t see that twist coming. Well played to K.K as I had no clue and I loved that as it made for a mouth opening no way moment. I think the way K.K made that particular aspect of the story come together, in the end, was beautifully done.
I loved seeing Chloe and Gavin again from Under the bleachers and seeing how life was moving on for them. This book can be read as a standalone, but you know me, I would never suggest that and anyway you can’t miss out on Chloe and Gavin’s beautiful written emotional story.
Under the Bleachers was a beautifully written, poignant book about friendship, love, forgiveness and moving on. It had just the right amount of drama with well-developed characters that you can’t help but love. I can’t wait to see what KK has in store for us next.
