Title: GOAT (The Detroit Sports Network #4)

Author: Liz Crowe

Genre: Contemporary Romance, Sports Romance

Book Blurb:

On the day Roz Garnet signed divorce papers, ending her near thirty year marriage to a hot-shot sports agent, she figured a celebration was in order. Little did she know that stopping by her favorite Detroit bar for an old fashioned would lead to a life-altering moment. All she wanted to do was to sink in her own self-pity puddle and try to figure out what she was going to do next.

Retired football star Sean Ridley was thrilled to have landed an up-and-coming agent for his son, so once that deal was struck, he stopped by his favorite Detroit bar for his own solitary celebration—no plans in place for a life-changing, chance meet up either.

But lives are changed, and plans are altered, and after one seriously hot weekend at a premiere horse racing event, Roz and Sean have to face the fact of the matter—that their first meeting might have been pure coincidence but it was one that made all the difference.

Lust and love don’t stop happening after forty—just ask the G.O.A.T.

My Review:

A chance meeting at a cherished bar turns to love for the G.O.A.T (Greatest of All Time) but is it only short-term or the real deal? Roz Garnet wonders what to do now that she’s officially divorced, not realizing stopping by her favorite bar for a cocktail would change her life. From the moment she meets retired football star Sean Ridley, desire pools in her belly. His whiskey-smooth voice makes her grow weak and his crush confession on her stirs something inside. After a hot romantic weekend together, Roz admits her heart’s desire. Sean may be the GOAT on the gridiron but when it comes to matters of the heart, it’s the partnership that matters. Can this be love after forty or just a wild fling?

GOAT is a steamy romance I couldn’t put down. As a football fan, I thoroughly enjoyed GOAT and its references to certain football players. I mean, ask any fan who the GOAT is, and they’ll tell you. This book is proof-positive you can find love and great sex after forty. Roz is a heroine to root for. I connected with her right away and kept nudging her to explore things with Sean. Their meet cute was quite endearing and so like life. The plot moves at a terrific pace with both Roz’s and Sean’s POVs to read. It’s always refreshing for me to read romance from a male point of view. The bedroom scenes were hot but the scenes leading up to those scenes were blistering hot. Anticipation. I loved the romantic tension so much. Well done, Liz Crowe. The writing is sublime, and I whipped through the pages to see what would happen next. GOAT is not only a steamy romance but explores the ups and downs of dating after forty. Liz Crowe describes the emotional toll for both Roz and Sean perfectly. Brilliantly written, GOAT is the ultimate romance deserves a trophy. If you’re looking for your next romance with a hot heat level, pick up GOAT. Fans of sports romance will love GOAT. Highly recommend!
