Getting Inside by Serena Bell 99 cents!
Getting Inside: A Seattle Grizzlies Novel (Seattle Grizzles) - Serena Bell

They’re big. They’re hot. And they play hard.

In the kickoff to Serena Bell’s sexy new football romance series, the heat between a female coach and a cocky linebacker turns the Seattle Grizzlies locker room upside down.

Iona: There’s nothing like the rush of going head-to-head with the boys. Football is my life, and I got my new job with the Seattle Grizzlies because I know how to play rough. But as a woman in a man’s game, I can’t afford any distractions—like panty-melting tabloid darling Ty Williams, my star linebacker. I’ve stared down plenty of good-looking players without losing my cool . . . and yet something about Ty’s intense gaze burns straight to my core.

Ty: Despite what they say in the press, I save my best moves for game day. The Grizzlies aren’t just my teammates, they’re my brothers—no way am I going to let some new coach shake up our defense. But Iona Thomas isn’t just some coach. It’s so tough to keep my head in the game when I’d rather be in bed with her. She may take charge at practice, but if I had her in my arms, I’d be choosing the plays. I just need to figure out what makes her tick—and what makes her want to break the rules.

Getting Inside: A Seattle Grizzlies Novel (Seattle Grizzles) - Serena Bell

I obtained an ARC of this book through Netgalley.

 

I wasn't sure about this when I read the description. Sports in a romance is not a big attraction for me and I was hesitant about a coach/player relationship. But, I've read other books by this author and I enjoyed them, and I was a little intrigued by the female coach angle, so I requested and received it.

 

I enjoyed the story. Iona is a strong woman. She knows herself, but she doubts herself when it comes to men and relationships. Partially because of her father and his harsh words about her strength and the career she's chosen for herself and partially because of previous failed relationships.

 

Ty is a strong man. He's driven and he supports his friends. And he really has the hots for Iona. He has a reputation as a player - he doesn't do relationships. He has family issues and that seems to be why he doesn't really do relationships, but he doesn't seem completely aware of that. And he really wants Iona.

 

There wasn't anything hinky or skeevy about their relationship. They're adults and they behave in an adult-like manner. They make good choices. The coach/player relationship was a thing, but not really. The issues that kept them apart were more personal and they were resolved in a sane manner. I enjoyed the conflict without all the angst.

 

I did feel like Iona was pretty self-contained. Aside from her conflict with her father and the doubts about herself related to her relationship with him, it was hard to know her. She felt sort of walled off.

To Have and to Hold: A Returning Home Novel - Serena Bell
Hunter Cross is a widowed dad, still in the Army with an 11 year old daughter, Clara. In the few months before Hunter's next leave, he falls for Trina Levine, the mom of his daughter's best friend, Phoebe. Just before he leaves, he declares his love for Trina and has her and her daughter move into his house to watch Clara for the year he will be gone.

Fast forward almost one year later, Hunter is involved in an accident that leaves his mind not remembering things, especially his time with Trina. It was so emotional what these two went through after Hunter's return. He was frustrated because of his memory lapse, and she was frustrated because he didn't remember his feelings for her. Boy..this story was sure an emotional one. I cannot even imagine what Trina Levine went through. It was fun watching him have to deal with an almost teenage daughter (having 3 daughters it brought back some fun and not so fun memories). I just adored Hunter's mom....she is a hoot! All our favorite guys from the previous books in this series make a quick visit. Overall, this was an enjoyable, emotional read.

Can’t Hold Back By Serena Bell 99 cents
Can't Hold Back: A Returning Home Novel - Serena Bell

No girl can resist a man in uniform—especially if that man is Nate Riordan. But after an injury in the line of duty leaves Nate broken, body and soul, the soldier finds himself addicted to his pain meds, with no place to call home. Desperate for an escape, Nate reluctantly accepts a friend’s invitation to a new veterans’ retreat. Expecting a little R&R, Nate is shocked when the sight of his physical therapist opens up another old wound: heartbreak.

Years ago, Alia Drake fell hard for Nate, but never made her move. Instead, she set up her sister with the sexy, confident military man, a foolish decision that continues to haunt all three of them. Now, with Nate as her patient, she can make things right—even if it means getting too close for comfort. A healing touch and a little honesty work wonders, fueling a physical intimacy that crosses professional boundaries. This time, with desire in the air once more, Alia won’t hold anything back.
