    About "Laura Trentham"

    1. Laura Trentham

      I was born and raised in a small town in Northwest Tennessee Although, I loved English and reading in high school, I was convinced an English degree equated to starvation So, I chose the next most logical major Chemical Engineering and worked in a hard hat and steel toed boots for several years Now I live in South Carolina with my husband and two children In between school and homework and soccer practices, I love to get lost in another world, whether its Regency England or small town Alabama.

    1. I loved Robbie I loved how he had morals, because you were blitzed, and excuse me for being gentlemanly, but I didn t want you puking your guts up while I screwed you Such a nice boy His thoughts sometimes were of those of a teenage virgin who was nervous, I ll go, but only if Robbie wants to She cast him an inscrutable look under her lashes What did that mean Did she want to go out with him He s sometimes pretty open about his thoughts, you have no effing idea how much I want you I think about [...]


    2. This was the first Laura Trentham book that I read and I definitely will be reading It isn t often that a book will make me have a range of emotions from laughing out loud the banter between the Dalt and Darcy to crying well, I won t give away why I cried I liked the layers to both of the characters and how they both had to overcome their insecurities, to be together I also appreciated the Grandmother s character because she seemed like a real person, almost like she was talking to you That is [...]

    4. 4 Let the past stay there and believe in love Stars Laura Trentham has added herself to one auto buy list with Slow and Steady Rush This book offered me everything that I want in a romance novel, and it also offered an extremely strong beginning to the Falcon Football Series Still waters and all that I started this book with minimal expectations, being that it is from a new author offering up a new series, but after reading the synopsis I was hopeful of a good read Laura than exceeded my expect [...]

    8. 4.5 stars for this sweet, thoughtful romance Darcy moved away from the small town she grew up in She hated living there, with small minded people and all the gossip Years later, when the grandma who raised her gets sick, she takes a leave of work to return to the small town she left behind As much as things have changed there, some things have stayed the same One new addition to her hometown is Robbie, aka Dalt, the new coach of the football team Robbie served in Afghanistan with Darcy s cousin [...]


    9. 2.5 starsI received this book for free in exchange for an honest review This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.Darcy couldn t wait to escape her hometown and all the small town gossip about her mother after high school When her grandmother breaks both hips, Darcy suddenly finds herself thrust back into that world There is one new addition, though, Robbie the new high school boy s football coach He served overseas with her cousin Logan and is not leaving Darcy alo [...]


    10. Well, I was about ready to give this my just okay stamp I thought the romance was rather ho hum, I struggled to be passionate towards Darcy and Robbie as a couple I wasn t particularly excited with Robbie, I guess I thought his secret didn t justify him to do the awful things like being judgmental or pushing the heroine away he did IMHO, Darcy did most of the attempts to keep their relationship AND, for a series with Football on the name, I didn t see too much football related scenes.But there w [...]


    11. When Darcy Wilde left her grandma s loving home to strike out on her own, she thought she was finished with small towns and small minds When grandma needed her help, due to an accident, Darcy drops everything, takes time off work, packs a couple of suitcases and comes back to Falcon, temporarily, only Little did she know she would meet the new high school football coach, become the biggest town gossip of all, spreading an untrue rumor about him and have to atone for her sins Even shocking, she [...]

    13. The characters were likable for the most part Robbie Dalton or better known as Dalt has a lot of insecurities At first he came off as this strong character a nice person who is respected as the new coach for the high school football team where football is LIFE For the last couple years the football team at Falcon has had a losing record, so it is on Dalt s shoulders to get the team back to winning Darcy has come back home to Falcon after being gone and living in Atlanta She was reluctant to come [...]


    14. This book covers a lot of relationship ground and does it really well.Darcy Wilde is a research librarian at Emery University when she returns to Falcon, Alabama to nurse the grandmother who raised her To say that Darcy doesn t want to be there is putting it mildly, but she firmly believes you do for family Robbie Dalt Dalton is a former Army Ranger who has moved to Falcon to be near his friend, Logan, and be the new football coach math teacher He has a whole luggage cart of baggage that he brin [...]


    15. Great addition to the small town contemporary field Loved the way that Darcy and Robbie connected over their shared love of her grandmother Ada And that though their chemistry was there from the start they didn t jump into anything though when they did ooh la la Even if the librarian heroine hadn t already endeared this book to me the smoking hot romance would have sealed the deal With a realistic and colorful cast of characters and a romance that s surprisingly poignant, this one is definitely [...]


    16. Alrighty guys, This was an okay read Although, to be honest, the storyline seemed a bit dated to me Speaking as a girl who hails from a small town in Georgia, I think the days of freaking out over a rud gay football coach are over He s not it s just a rumor But this is the basis of the H h relationship They pretend to date and wellyou can guess what happens next Like I said it is an okay read just not one that moved me or prompted me to discover about series ARC provided by Netgalley

    28. As a reader and reviewer , a good book for me is the one that pulls at my heartstrings, makes me shed a few tears, makes my heart heavy with the pain of the protagonists, pulls my lips into smiles and laughter at their wit and gives me goose bumps as I become a part of their passionate love story to a future And as reader it is very rare for me to get captivated by a new author on my list, yet Laura does the very same with her Slow And Steady Rush Falcon Football Series Darcy Wilde takes a sabba [...]
