The book has been on my radar for a long time and I'm glad I finally got a chance to read it. It was my first book by Alisha Rai but it definitely won't be my last> I was expecting a book about finding love through a dating app but this was so much more.
Rhiannon is a smart, independent, stand-offish woman with trust issues.Samson Lima is a retired football player with a heart the size of a football stadium. She is the designer and woner of a dating app and he is the a bit of an online novice who is representing a more old-school dating match program.
I was expecting a fun romance - which I certainly got but there was so much more. Rhiannon was forced out of her previous company because of sexual harrassment and then bad mouthed by her former boyfriend/ company owner. Samson is fighting the NFL over issues about brain injuries in football players. Both his father and uncle were found to have issues and he walked off the field into retirement over the treatment of a friend who had a concussion.
Both are wary of love and have their own issues but watching them overcome their lack of trust to let someone in is an amazing thing. I am just glad to see that this is the first in a series because someof the secondary characters made me want to know more about them.
