Product Description

Product Description

Jason Black is a newly retired professional football player. Forced off the playing field due to an injury, he returns to his hometown to contemplate his future and finds solace in his relationship with his best friend, Samantha O’Brien.

Sam has spent the past five years caring for her younger brother. Home from college for Thanksgiving break, he parties hard and bullies his sister. When Jason comes to her defense, protecting her from a crowd of drunken college kids, Sam begins seeing him as more than a friend. Yet, she fears acting on their attraction could ruin the friendship she’s grown to depend upon.

Just one kiss changes everything for Jason. Sam is no longer the girl next door but the woman of his dreams. Now, he just has to convince her that his feelings are real. But when the football world comes calling again and career decisions are on the line, both sacrifice all to put the other’s needs first. They must decide whether to follow their hearts and make the catch of a lifetime.

5.0 out of 5 stars 4.5 Fabulous "You Must Read This" Stars! 16 October 2014
By Em & M Books - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
4.5 Stars

I just loved this book and am so impressed how such a big story was told in so few pages without leaving me feeling like I needed more. I was also impressed with the fact that despite having two authors, I would be hard pressed to find any instances where they didn't speak with one voice. The plot flowed nicely, the characters were multi-dimensional, and there was real life edge to the book that I really liked.

Sam was such a wonderful character. She has suffered such loss in her life, but has become so strong in spite of it all. She is at odds with her younger brother, but finds strength in her neighbor – her best friend, and a man she now looks at as maybe being someone who could be more than a friend.

Jason is trying to find his way now that his professional football career has come to end. What he didn't expect was to find himself looking at his best friend as someone who could be so much more – and when he sets his mind on having Sam, he’ll go to any lengths to prove to her that he’s the man she needs…and deserves.

Sam and Jason together were just awesome – what started as a smoldering attraction quickly escalated into a full blown bonfire! And even though there were things that got in the way of their happy ever after, Jason couldn't have been any sweeter – standing up for Sam, being at her side through some rough times with her brother, and just being an all-around good guy. I loved the fact that Sam has come to terms with her past and is ready (and willing) to move forward with her relationship with Jason, which was refreshing and made me love Sam that much more – she really has been dealt so many tough blows that I was really routing for her to find her HEA!

This is a definite must read – and I hope there will be more stories like this from the writing team of Susan Scott Shelley & Veronica Forand!

I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is a short, cute version of boy next ... 16 October 2014
By Melissa Mattern - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
This is a short, cute version of boy next door begins to have feeling for girl next door, adult version. I read Tackled by the Girl Next Door in a couple of hours over one evening. We have Sam who has experienced her share of heart break in her young 30s something years; she lost her husband to an accident in Iraq and only a few years later, her mother is killed in car wreak leaving her to move home and take care of her younger brother. Sam's younger brother is now in college and she is struggling to make ends meet at a job she hates. The boy next door, Jason, has had a career-ending injury in the NFL and has returned home for a reprieve trying to decide his next move in life. Jason and Sam have always been best-friends but suddenly Jason finds himself looking at Sam in a new light wondering if she might be feeling the same way. A careless accident leaves Sam emotionally vulnerable with Jason there to comfort her. Jason and Sam.......I'm not going to tell you what happens! You have to read the cute little novella from Susan Scott Shelly and Veronica Forand to find out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Adorable! :) 22 October 2014
By poshpow - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
This story is absolutely adorable! I LOVED the fact that it's such a romantic and sweet, well-developed story played out in just a few pages.

Jason and Sam were wonderful characters with so much to offer the story. Jason is the lost soul who finds solace in the sweet, almost too perfect girl next door. They rescue one another and their romance is silver screen worthy.

It's a beautiful scenario, created in an even more beautiful setting with characters that the reader can't help but love.

I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. All conclusions reached are my own.

5.0 out of 5 stars Snuggle under a blanket and read this book 4.5 stars 16 October 2014

Format: Kindle Edition
This novella is an enjoyable read! The story of Samantha (Sam) and Jason, two people who live next door to each other and have been friends forever. Sam, has not had it easy her husband died in Iraq and had returned home years earlier to raise her brother after the death of their Mother. Jason the guy next door, there for her in good and bad times. The book spans 1 week and everything that happens as they realize that there is an attraction and what to do about it! A great read to relax with for a quick read! Hope to see more collaborations between these two authors!

5.0 out of 5 stars The chill of autumn, cheers from the field and true romantic adventure. 16 October 2014

What a great escape this novella is. Takes you back to the excitement of football games and romance. Lots of twists and turns in this short story. The characters are well defined and you become involved quickly in their lives and thoughts. Even though plot works well , my one problem is that it wasn't longer so I could take my wine and sit by the fire longer lost in this world the authors created!
