Tiebreaker by P. Dangelico is a contemporary standalone romance that is set in the same fictional universe as the Baby Maker, with Dane and Stella making a very small appearance. A second chance romance for the ages full of angst and heartbreak, misunderstandings and good intentions. This is only the second book I have read by this author but I really enjoyed her writing style, the underlying humor that was woven throughout the story, even at the more difficult times in the book. It also will NOT be the last book I will read by her - I am very excited for Annabelle's story coming (hopefully soon) in Risk Taker.
Maren is at the height of her tennis career and life is not great, there is no soul burning romance to write home about and now, after her last match, there is also no career for the near future due to a broken wrist. This happens about the same time she gets word that her grandfather has passed away and she has to come home. A place she has avoided like the plague ever since Noah broke her heart, stomped all over it, and did so in front of the entire town.
Noah has been living half a life ever since he ran Maren out of town. His mistakes were his and he owns that but he also owns his regret and the desperate need to fix what he broke and try his damnedest to win her back. After one day in town he realizes that Maren will NOT be making this anything short of impossible for him, however.
