Necessary Roughness book review

I was so saddened to read of the recent death of Julie Brannagh. As a fellow football fan, I have read several of her previous books and enjoyed them.

What I particularly liked about this one is the internal dialogue the burly football player uses to describe the heroine. Beneath that crabby exterior lurks an unexpected whimsy. The description of Jordan’s roommates adds to the metaphors.

The contrast between Tanner’s lack of a plan for his inevitable exit from playing football and Jordan’s very clear path for her life’s work is nicely done.

R.I.P., Julie. We’ll miss your voice.

BOOK SYNOPSIS

Tanner Cole’s football career was over in less than thirty seconds one Sunday afternoon. After a lifetime playing the sport he loves he’s been forced into an early retirement. Between figuring out his plan for the rest of his life and dealing with the pain of his injuries, this grouchy hottie isn’t in the mood for the perky physical therapist who makes him in ache in more than one place. Jordan Mueller doesn’t have time for a sulky ex-NFL player, even one who looks like Tanner. She’s done with falling for the bad boy without a heart. When she’s forced out of her apartment and offered an opportunity too good to pass up, she agrees to move in with Tanner. She’s only there to speed up his recovery. No funny business, even if her body is telling her otherwise. As Tanner and Jordan spend more and more time together, they begin to see each other in a new light that threatens to change everything. But when the ghosts of girlfriends past reappear, Tanner must decide if he’s willing to put everything on the line for a shot at a future with Jordan.
