Description

From New York Times bestselling author Kendall Ryan comes a second chance romance about a hotshot quarterback and the one girl who isn't falling for his game.

I broke her heart ten years ago and left town.

She hates me, and rightly so. It doesn’t matter that the rest of the country loves me, that I’m a starting quarterback with a multimillion-dollar contract. Because when I look in the mirror, all I see is a failure who was too young—and too afraid—to fight for what I wanted.

But I’m not that guy anymore, and all I need is one shot to convince her.

***
He has no idea what happened after he left. And now I’m supposed to work alongside him like we don’t have this huge, messy history?

But I’m older now, wiser, and I won’t let anything stand in my way of doing a good job for this league. Not even one overpaid, arrogant player who thinks we’re going to kiss and make up.

News flash, buddy: I am over you.

    Is there such a thing as a third chance romance? Cuz, really it’s not quite a second chance romance. Wes and Jane were sweethearts in high school. College and Wes’ actions are what breaks them apart. Who would have thought 10yrs later Wes would end up playing professional football for the very team Jane works for. But Wes makes some not so smart moves. And Jane, a woman who LOVES football... she has to end up with Wes... Right? Truly is a good book, don’t have to be a football lover to enjoy it. It’s not my favorite book from Ms. Ryan, but that said, I’m still anxious to get Alex’s book.
  • Fantastic!

    If anyone is from Chicago, you’ll know that the Hawks are a hockey team. The author or editor should have caught that. Their mistake was made on the first couple of pages, which was enough for me not to continue to read.

    I love sports books, so I was very excited when I found out Kendall was writing a sports romance. She does a great job of tying football into the storyline and keeping it an active component. I enjoyed the main concept of the book and how everything develops as the book goes on. Wes can be an idiot at times, but he's a strong, determined, caring guy. Jane is a sweet, hardworking, and funny girl. She's got a great head on her shoulders and is great at her job. Her relationship with Wes is filled with ups and downs. They have a lot of struggles but they were meant to be. I would have liked a just a little more detail and content towards the end. The epilogue was a cute one for sure! I'm excited for Finding Alexei now!
  • Great Second Chance Romance!!

    Jane and Wes were childhood sweethearts. When long distance isn’t working when they are in college Jane makes the decision to let him go. She is shocked when the football team she works for picks him up. Great second chance romance. I liked how Wes owned up to his past mistakes. Jane made him work for forgiveness. A sweet and steamy read. Super enjoyable.

    Wow! Handsome ripped quarterback with a broken heart traded to Chicago after a messy tabloid breakup. Enter Jane his sexy high school sweetheart who is the assistant manager of the his new team and what you have is a wickedly awesome rom-com with such undeniable chemistry. This book is truly one of the best. I couldn’t put it down I loved all the feelings. It’s one of those books I wish I could reread for the first time.

    Loved it! Another hit from Kendall. The Dear Jane scene was so sweet and not at all how I interpreted the title. The characters had a lot of hurt and history to navigate. I enjoyed watching the relationship evolve. Can’t wait for Alexi’s story. Great characters and a unique storyline.

    A flirtatious, fiery, and emotional second-chance romance that will make you fall in love with sports romances all over again! Dear Jane gives you everything you love about Kendall Ryan romance – excitement, entertainment, and a love story that’s not only red hot but loaded with feels. Weston and Jane have a complicated and somewhat unresolved history. Tensions arise, and old wounds resurface when Weston is traded to a new football team, the same team Jane works for. And after 10 years apart, their chemistry and attraction to one another clearly hasn’t gone away, along with the hurt and pain that accompanies their reconnection. But can these two make a relationship work again, or will responsibilities and ambition tear them apart for a second time? I thoroughly enjoyed this book, just like every book the author releases. Dear Jane showcases another aspect to the author’s writing style that makes her readers crave even more from her. The connection between Weston and Jane was intense, giving an enemies-to-lovers-ish vibe to the storyline at first, that quickly transforms into a second chance love story with emotional baggage and unresolved issues. But as entertaining as this book was, I personally think the characters restarted their relationship a little too quickly, as given evidence from the story by how hurt and emotionally crushed Jane was when her relationship with Weston ended the first time. (A very big specific reason I won’t state, as that would be way too spoiler-y.) It just seemed a little bit rushed for my taste. But otherwise, the story was fantastic. The dynamic between them was not only smoking hot, but hilarious and downright swoon worthy! If you love a fun, sweet, and sexy love stories with a sports theme and dreamy characters, then Dear Jane is just the book for you! A highly recommended quick steamy read.
