Today's hook

He chuckled at the thought as he leaned back and stared at the ceiling. When Sarah moved into their neighbourhood with her parents and older sister, she was a skinny girl, with pale skin, her wavy dark hair frizzy and always tied back into a ponytail. She’d been ignored by the girls and teased by the boys. Until the day she’d kicked the football. A smiled played on his lips. Yes, she’d been one hell of a football player. He remembered how sick he’d felt when he heard the other boys teasing her. Until he’d seen her in the park one day, too afraid to go home, because she’d ripped her pants while climbing across a fence running away from them. Her dad had just left and money had been tight.
He’d invited her to his house and they’d been friends ever since.

Had they crossed the line today? Had it been the atmosphere of the wedding that made them yearn for someone, and they’d turned out to be that someone for each other? Had she simply wanted to forget about her pain, and he’d been as good as anybody?



Blurb:
Markus DeLeon and Sarah Winter’s lives couldn’t be more different… After three years away as the goalkeeper for an English soccer club, Markus has been happy to be back in Australia. He’d missed his family and friends, including Sarah. He’s known her since childhood, and often protected her from the teasing of other children and the troubling consequences of a broken home.

When they attend their friends’ wedding, a new light is cast on their friendship… Sarah is fresh out of a bad relationship, and Markus has always been the one she can confide in. Maybe it’s the magic of the wedding—or how stunning he looks in a tux—but the attraction between them intensifies in ways they’d never imagined.

But sometimes when risking what you have, you might lose everything… Following a passionate encounter, Markus isn’t sure how to handle this new aspect of his relationship with Sarah, and literally flees the scene for the coast. Sarah is unsure how to react to his sudden departure, but is soon knocked off course by misunderstandings and a frightening family emergency.

Markus realises his mistake and wants to make things right, but he also faces obstacles. He’s been offered an exciting new job, and an attractive newcomer to the neighbourhood is eager to claim his attention, though the last thing Markus needs is another confusing relationship.
Can Sarah and Markus face the fear and doubt—and the potential loss of their lifelong friendship—to give their love a chance?

   
     


5 Stars 
Book #3 of the Australian Sport Series - also the one I enjoyed the most :)
Their love story is not your regular "thrills" one - you know, the one with shivers top to bottom and bottom to top - at the first sight :) It's a beautiful story about the friendship, strong and true, turning slowly into some profound feelings. They do not realize it at first, then they do not want to realize that, finally they are too scared to admit it... :) But it gets them anyways :D

4 Stars
For me this book had to happen. Markus and Sarah have been best friends forever and the only ones still single.
Despite the obstacles and the misunderstandings that litter their lives, they were always meant for each other. The chemistry between them is undeniable but thankfully they figure it out.
Iris does an amazing job creating believable characters, in real life situations with emotions that we've all experienced.
A great summer read full of love, laughter and enduring friendship.
