Product Description

How do you find the will to try, when you’ve spent all of your life playing on a field strewn with shattered lives and broken rules?

Tragedy and betrayal taught Jenna Sutherland early on that her safest bet was to fiercely avoid any risk, whether it is in work, life, or love. Now a respected orthopedic surgical resident on the cusp of finally breaking through in her career, she’s more guarded than ever.

When injured NFL quarterback Wyatt McCoy bulldozes into her life there’s no denying he’s cocky, selfish, and downright dangerous — everything Jenna’s sworn she doesn’t want.

Suddenly the levelheaded doctor finds herself facing down her greatest fear, and she’s tempted to gamble all she’s fought so hard to build. The two embark on an intense holiday love affair that quickly teeters on obsession, and tempts them both to think they could go all-in on a real future together. Yet Wyatt’s desperation to stay on the field — and out of the operating room — lures him to take dangerous risks with Jenna’s trust.

Will they win at love or lose everything­ —including their fragile chance at happiness?

This book is deserving of more than 5 stars! It has to be one of the best, stunningly perfect books I have ever read. When I ugly cry in the prologue, yes the prologue, I know I am in for the emotional ride of my life!

This book delivers everything a reader of contemporary romance could want: smiles, laughter, tears, angst, love, romance, trials, tribulations, a strong female lead (Jenna), a bold male lead (Wyatt), fabulous secondary characters and the all important HEA ending.

Jenna and Wyatt's story strongly spoke to me and absolutely melted my heart. I found it extremely difficult to put this book down, and the twists, turns, and unexpected events kept me mesmerized on the edge of my seat.

Chloe Barlow writes in a way in which one can easily picture everything that happens. Her writing pulls you in, her words encircle you and while you read nothing else in the world matters. When the book ends you find yourself satisfied, happy, crying yet desiring more of Jenna and Wyatt. It's just that dang good!!!!!

Kudos to Chloe Barlow for presenting readers with a story they will long hold dear in their hearts as well as think about for days to come.

I absolutely "floved" City of Champions!!!!!! Read it! You won't be disappointed.

I enjoyed the first book isn't this series, Three Rivers, both characters making an appearance in this here & there. This could be read as a standalone if you wish.
This tale is about Jenna & Wyatt. It doesn't disappoint. The doctor & the football player. These two are so hot eventually for each other. Some sad issues are mentioned however dealt with well.
Another story I couldn't put down. A nice romantic hard won HEA. I'm sure you'll enjoy it. Happy reading.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Game Winner!! 11 November 2014
By Ash Lake - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
So afraid of loosing anyone she starts to love, Jenna distances herself from any kind of happiness, except for her best friends, Aubrey and Althea.

Making the move to Pittsburgh when Tea needs her, she starts work at the local hospital. Nothing will stand in her way of getting the fellowship in Orthopedics. Not ever a certain football player.

Wyatt McCoy, son of a great, wants to prove to Jenna that she can love. She thinks he's a jerk.
When a injury requires some care, Wyatt only wants Jenna to help.

He challenges her in every way. And I loved every. single. moment!

I loved these two together! They made me laugh, cry, swoon (Oh Wyatt) and love!

"You and me? We're going to happen, Doc. I'm not afraid to wait,
I'm pretty sure you'll be worth it."

Just when Jenna's walls start to crumble for Wyatt, something happens that makes her take another look at her relationship with him. But Wyatt has a person from his past messing with him, which starts to affect his future. My heart went out to Jenna. But Wyatt's love for her never fades. Get your tissues're going to need them!

"Is it ok if I think I love you?"
"Yes, it's okay. Because I think I love you, too."

Chloe, you just continue to amaze me! I loved Three Rivers so much, but City of Champions has taken it to a whole new level! I cannot wait to read whats next!

5.0 out of 5 stars CofC is a game winner! 11 November 2014
By BookAddict - Published on

This book is one to go on the shelf of future re-reads. After reading and loving book 1 of this series, Three Rivers, I was anxious to see what the author would do with Jenna's story; I was not disappointed! City of Champions was more than I could have hoped for: Wyatt is a super-sexy quarterback in the NFL, and Jenna is a no-nonsense, sweet doctor. When these two strong people meet, personalities clash and intense attraction overwhelms.
As I've come to expect from this author, she has brought the feels! The prologue had me tearing up, and then right away laughing out loud in chapter one. All of the characters, primary and secondary, bring so much to this smartly written story that is far more than just a "boy meets girl" read. The depth and sophistication of this story will stay with you long after you've finished reading.
I have major love for Wyatt; he is such a great character. He does all the wrong things for all the right reasons. And while Jenna is compassionate with Wyatt, she does not take his crap! Jenna is far too much a lady, and too kind, to be rude, but she does not allow Wyatt's alpha personality to alter her actions or decisions when she's in the right.
The sexual tension between the H/h is in-tense, and their steaminess fogged my glasses! I'm fanning myself just thinking of the closet scene. And the tub scene. And the... Well, you'll just have to read it, because seriously, everyone *needs* to check this book, and this series, out! They have quickly become favorites for me.
I want to grab every person who looks at this book and shout, "READ THIS! Give it a go - you'll LOVE it!"

5.0 out of 5 stars Love Jenna and Wyatt! 12 November 2014
By Aimz - Published on

City of Champions is book 2 in the Gateway to Love series by Chloe Barlow.

Jenna is an orthopedic surgeon resident and Wyatt is a NFL quarterback with a problem right shoulder in need of surgery. Unfortunately for Wyatt, surgery is the last thing he wants. His grandfather had to undergo surgery when Wyatt was younger, but he never came out of it. He is willing to do anything to keep from going under the knife, even if that means trying to persuade a pretty resident by any means possible. Jenna has had trouble with athletes in her past and she avoids them at all costs. Will the sexy quarterback be able to break through the strong minded Jenna? Will he go too far in his quest to avoid surgery? Will Jenna be able to overcome her past fears/worries? Will they find strength in each other? Will they find love? These are two very amazing people who seem so real!

This is an amazing love story between two individuals driven by hard life lessons at young ages. One piece of advice from her dying mother, life is not fair. I love this book even though I was ugly crying at 3 am in the morning….

This is an amazing series that you don’t want to miss!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Edgy, funny, surprising... Chloe has done it again! 11 November 2014
By Helena Newbury - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I am not, in general, a blubber. But City of Champions reduced me to a helpless, ugly mess of tears in places. It's *that* affecting. Chloe shows that she has the writing chops to follow through on the promise of her debut novel with a subtle, gritty romance that's as warm as it is sad and as edgy as it is cozy. After the awesomeness that was Griffen in the first book, I wasn't sure if I was going to like Wyatt. But the cocky, damaged footballer proved to be every bit as good as the author and, once I'd warmed to him, I was rooting for him all the harder because I felt I'd misjudged him. Jenna, too, is every bit as well drawn and as likable as Tea. Chloe throws in some sucker punches I didn't see coming - she has a real knack for taking the story where you didn't expect it to go. I loved it and I'm now eagerly awaiting the next book.

I was a beta reader for this book and so received a complimentary, pre-release copy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Jenna + Wyatt = a new favorite book couple! 11 November 2014
By Kellsmo - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I loved book one. Book two blew me away too! Jenna and Wyatt both had difficult experiences in their childhoods. It made them both who they are today. A man who will do anything to support his family, and a woman who has a wall around her heart, and is their for everyone she loves not focusing on herself. Yes, Wyatt is a playboy, but when he locks eyes on Jenna he's hooked. JENNA has followed Wyatts football career for years and currently finds him irresistible to look at. There's a lot of cat and mouse chasing but even though there's drama including paparazzi, their careers at steak, health scares, I still wanted their love to have a chance. Is there a HEA? Buy it to find out! It's a wonderful read with sorrow, love, anger, betrayal, and hope...what more can a great book have!
