    This is the second book in this series about loving sportsmen. I thoroughly enjoyed her first book, so I was excited to get to read this one and she did not disappoint me. I am now salivating waiting to read the third installment, especially after the sneak peek at the end of this book.

I thoroughly enjoyed her first book, so I was excited to get to read this one and she did not disappoint me. I am now salivating waiting to read the third installment, especially after the sneak peek at the end of this book. The author has quite the knack for writing about sports and the headaches of relationships that go along with them. I find this thrilling as I too have firsthand knowledge of that type of relationship and how hard it is to make them work. If you can make them work. I love the way that she describes the characters and the world around them from the sports field to their regular lives. This book was related to the sport of cricket which I knew a little bit about when I started reading. She did a great job of describing the sport without sounding too much like a commentator. I now look forward to watching some actual cricket games on television. Please read this book. Especially if you are into sports.

    I enjoyed this sports romance story. This is not my first book by this author but it is one of my favorites by her yet. This is a well written story that pulled me in from the first word.

This is a fast paced story about Claude and Delilah. This is their second chance romance story. They were married and divorced but with that comes lots of hurt. Years later when they meet again, will fate step in and give them a second chance? I enjoyed their growth throughout the story. It also was an emotional roller coaster in parts but they made such great characters. They really made the story for me. I highly recommend reading their story to find out what fate has in store for them.

    Stumped by Pamela Q Fernandes is the second book in the To Love a Sportsman series. What initially drew me to this book is that the author had chosen a sport most wouldn’t choose to write about - cricket. I have come across a couple of other books that use this sport but it is definitely uncommon. And understandably so as it isn’t what most would think of as an exciting sport. And yet this author has turned it into something to be excited about.

    I really enjoy this author and love the culture exposure I get when reading about sports I’m not quite as familiar with. Another great read from start to finish, I’ve found this author to be reliable for a good book, relatable characters, steady pacing, and all around delightful time spent. Added bonus if you enjoy a good contemporary piece with some sports thrown in. Pick it up - you won’t regret it.

The storyline centred around the poster boy for English cricket, the English vice-Captain Claude de Lussan and the women who loves him Delilah Taylor. Claude is rich, smart, handsome, and a great cricketer all of which also makes him slightly arrogant. Delilah’s whole existence revolves around the vice-Captain and after a thrilling and exciting summer with him she finds herself married and then divorced from Claude, who she knows doesn't love her back. When he enters Delilah‘s world again years later they have a second chance at their relationship but they have many old hurts, resentments and misunderstandings to resolve if they are to have a future together. This story introduced me to the world of English cricket and the players which I found fascinating. The story flowed well and the plot kept me happily turning the pages. I felt immersed in Delilah and Claude’s world as the descriptive narrative made both the setting and the characters come to life for me. I also found the main characters to be likeable and relatable which helped me feel engaged with them and I found myself cheering them on, hoping they would both get their happy ever after.
