two lives traveling in opposite directions - Buddy Carruthers, Wide Receiver (First and Ten #2) by Jean C. Joachim

Now a rock star known as Emerald, Emmy lived her life on the road with no time for love. In her dreams, she longed to turn back the clock and spend another night with Buddy. But lies and deceit had kept them apart for five years. Would a chance meeting wash away those years or cause old wounds to resurface?


Description:

Known for his record-breaking stats and womanizing ways, wide receiver, Buddy Carruthers, would give it all up for one chance to win the only woman he ever wanted, Emmy Meacham. Hard-won games, and traveling half the season kept Buddy from pursuing his secret passion. Even if he managed to corner her for a moment, would she still care?

Now a rock star known as Emerald, Emmy lived her life on the road with no time for love. In her dreams, she longed to turn back the clock and spend another night with Buddy. But lies and deceit had kept them apart for five years. Would a chance meeting wash away those years or cause old wounds to resurface? Could two lives traveling in opposite directions make room for love or would they continue to spin, out of sync, and always alone?

Book#1
He wants to find a wife. She doesn’t want to marry again –ever. Not exactly a match made in heaven. Ten years ago, Griff Montgomery, star quarterback of the Kings and womanizer, became a stand-in father for his widowed sister’s kids. His happy family life collapsed when she and her new husband moved to California. Griff wants his own family. But where does a “player” go to find his ideal mate? 

Having sworn off marriage forever, Lauren Farraday barely kept her life together after her divorce. With her career shaky and depression closing in, the last thing she needed was a courtroom battle with a sexy athlete. 
Forced, by a judge, into an uneasy truce, the pair denied their growing chemistry. Wary of Griff’s reputation with women, and hiding a secret, Lauren keeps him at arm’s length. Determined, Griff marches toward his goal. Can the quarterback handle the truth or will he walk away, like he always has in the past?

Author's Top 5 Books/Series 

I’ve never listed my favorite series before. That’s an interesting question. It changes things from top five books. So here we go:

1) Nancy Drew - has to be my favorite series of all time.
2) Nero Wolfe mysteries - again, I’ve always been a huge mystery fan
3) To Love a Wildcat - hockey romance written by my friend, V. L. Locey. I couldn’t put each book in the series down.
4) The Dakota series by Debbie Macomber
5) Stephanie Plum’s series by Janet Evanovich

I follow this blog in several ways and always love their giveaways :) As for the story, it's strange that one of the characters has the same name as my niece (Emmy) and the other character has the same name (nickname) of her son (Buddy), lol :)
