As a bestselling romance author, most assume my life’s glamorous, filled with combustible chemistry, and most of all, romance. Ha! I can only wish. With a deadline looming, I’ve escaped to my family’s cabin on Anderson Island to free myself from distractions. My plan’s great, until a man, who could pass as a cover model on one of my books, comes to my rescue. Is there chemistry? Sure. Is he everything I’d look for in a guy? Absolutely. But will my career be at risk if I give into my desire?
For a player, women line up outside the locker room. For coaches, we’re lucky to get in the game. As the youngest NFL coach in the league, I live, eat, breathe, and even sleep football. To gear up for this season, I return to my home on Anderson Island for a much-needed break. When Dani literally crashes into my life, my mind’s suddenly on the sexy brunette with a sailors mouth, rather than my team’s next play. She has me dusting off another playbook entirely, making me wonder, did I make the right call?

If you’re looking for a sweet low angst escape Amanda Shelley has got you covered with Making The Call. I’m sure for a ton of readers this will be a fantastic five star read and I genuinely wish that was the case for me but as much as I can objectively say I know tons of people will LOVE this, it just wasn’t the perfect book for me.
The writing itself is great, it’s clear this author knows how to tell a story I just couldn’t really connect with the characters. Especially Danika. I felt the most we really got to know about Danika was that she was an author. Outside of her career there really wasn’t much else to her that we saw. While I loved how passionate she was about her career I also would have felt more of a connection if we got to see more beyond that.
There’s definite chemistry that exists between Luke and Danika and the sparks between them are obvious from the second they meet but there were times even then that those sparks took a backseat to the focus of her writing. Even small conversations seemed to always circle back to her career. Outside of that though the romance is positively swoony and as I said earlier this book is definitely a great read if you want something light filled with a lot of sweetness.
