Also in this series: Refuse to Lose

I’ve lost my wife, now it’s time to come home and raise my two kids as a single father. When my son decides to play football on the very same team I started out on, I’m thrilled. I instantly sign up to coach, excited to share this time with him.

I’m about to meet some of my team, but I’m not expecting to meet her too. The wind is practically knocked out of me when I spot Karen standing there in a line of parents all waiting for the same thing—football gear. The connection between us is instant, just as it was all those years go, and I can tell from the smile on her face that she feels it too.

I discover her husband has left her for another woman and it angers me but, I know it’s time to make her mine. The cheating bastard is actually mad when he realizes I’m the man in her life, but that’s too bad. I’ll treat her right because if there’s one thing I’ve learned from sports it’s that, cheaters never win.

In life and in sports you need to have...
...Hustle and Heart

I absolutely loved Refuse to Lose, book one in A Coach’s Love series, so when I saw book two, Hustle and Herat by Alison Mellow was coming, I could not wait to read it! Let me tell you I was not disappointed. If anything, I loved this second chance romance even more!

Jesse and Karen knew each other in high school, but then life happened and both went down different directions. Jesse is now a widower and single father raising his two kids. When one decides to join football, Jesse is excited to be a part of the team as a coach, but he never expected to see Karen there as well after all these years.

Karen is in the process of getting divorced from her cheating husband and trying to find her way as a single mother. Seeing Jesse was the last thing she expected, much less her reaction to him! With this second chance, they both go down a path that was so sweet. I loved seeing these two families blend together and how much support they got from their family and friends. But life is never easy and when Karen’s past comes back, can they find a way to make it through?

This was such a sweet and charming second chance romance. I loved Jesse and Karen so much. They were both honest, caring and supportive. Their story will captivate you from start to end!

Her following books Needing Your Love (November 2015), Found My Love (December 2015), and Fighting for Love (January 2016) were also published with Siren to finish the Learning to Love series.

Her desire to see her books on shelves led to her next work Chasing Dreams (April 2015), now Club Thrive 1: Compulsion.

Excited to reach that goal, she moved on to the next series she had in mind and wrote Saved By a Soldier (June 2016), My Broken Soldier (July 2016), Forever My Soldier (August 2016), and A Soldier for Bella (September 2016).

Alison enjoyed reading as a child and found her passion for it again in 2011 when E.L. James’ Fifty Shades of Grey was released. Her love of reading was re-ignited and she continued reading other books in the same genre. In the summer of 2015, she decided to give writing a try and two weeks later Finding Love was born. As soon as she finished the first book, she began writing the second book in the series. Her third book was finished by the time Finding Love had been accepted for publication.
