Publisher's Summary

From USA Today best-selling authors comes book one in the Crossover series.

A mafia princess. The nation's favorite football player. Can they make it work?

An unlikely matching of the stars.

The opposites had it all for one year.

Justice Bexley, the daughter of Cain and Calla leaders of the Diamond Syndicate, sacrificed true love to protect Liam. Her selfish action destroyed them both.

Liam Blake moved on with his prestigious career. However, his outlook on life was never the same. If his parents could fight for true love with a pinky promise, he can keep moving forward. At least he tried convincing himself of that.

Some say true love has a way of finding its way back. Justice and Liam know better than to believe. That's up until the day they find themselves in a heated meeting.

She owns a new football team.

He's coming back from an injury and thirsty to prove the nation wrong.

Years of pent-up anger and hatred may fuel an epic second-chance love story or ruin both of them for good.

Loved it!

I loved this! Great Football/Mafia romance- not a combo i had read before. Premise was great. Characters were easy to connect with. I thought this story had the perfect amount of heat, action, and story. Narration was fabulous. I love Lacy's narrations~

Ok so overall the story was good, I am just not a fan of the beginning it really took me a while to get into the book. The struggle for me is “mafia princess” and how she is protecting him only it causes more pain.

I don’t know I just had a hard time connecting with, that then boom a few years later and know it feels like he is going to get some kind of revenge.

It does get better but by then I was really only half listening and I hate that because I normally love these authors.

Maybe it just wasn’t for me and will be for someone else.

I enjoyed the narration they really did a great job.

Mafia and football?

The team of HJ Bellus and Kathy Coopmans promises a great read, but when I saw this I thought, how can they merge sports romance with mafia? With strong characters and a dual point of view, these two wrote a beautiful love story with a suspenseful back story. Justice is the daughter of a mafia family who dated Liam, the star quarterback I. Her college. When things got serious, she broke up with him to protect his reputation. When she takes on the ownership and management of a new football team, these two have their paths cross again, and sparks fly! But will they be able to get past the breakup and move on? Will her family be a problem for Liam? And how will it effect the team, the family and their relationship? Bellus and Coopmans bring us Liam, the hot athlete who is strong willed, fiercely protctive and a teddy bear to take care of Justice, an incredibly smart, strong and beautiful woman out to prove herself a success. It is a fun, action filled book surely making your ears happy,

The enjoyable team of Lacy Laurel and Logan McAllister bring these characters to life. These two have such great chemistry, their pace is good and I love the variety of voices they have to portray all the characters. Always a pleasure to listen to them.

Perfect Cross Genre book!

I never expected a sports/mafia book to work but this book did more than that! It was the perfect balance of sexy athlete and scary mob men with plenty of drama mixed in. I look forward to reading more in this series.

The narration was pure perfection! Lacy is quickly becoming a favorite of mine!

Mafia and Football!

I love Mafia Romance and Sports Romances so this was a fun combo. Also, a cute story about 2nd chances after they had walked away from a perfectly good thing. The narration was really good and made the story very enjoyable.

Football and Mafia

This is my first book by either of these authors and i'm on the fence with it. It took me a long time to get in to the book. The story felt like it was a little all over the place. Liam is supposed to be an alpha but he just had anger issues, being a dick isn't the same thing as being an alpha.

I've listened to both Lacy Laurel and Logan McAllister before and enjoyed them. They were a great duo to bring this story to life.

A Rare Treat

Title: Full Contact
Author: Kathy Coopmans and HJ Bellus
Format: Audio
Narrator: Lacy Laurel, Logan McAllister
Genre: Romance - Second-chance, sports (football), suspense
Standalone: Yes
Part of a Series: Yes book 1 in the Crossover series
POV: Justice and Liam
Steam Level: Steam
5/5

This is the first book I've read by either HJ Bellus or Kathy Coopmans. I really enjoyed it and truly had no idea who the stalker was until it was revealed. This NEVER happens and makes me want to read more of their writing. I definitely want to read more of this series. The climax of the story nearly gutted me. I was listening at work and nearly started crying (again, also rare - for audio).

I received this audiobook for free. This is my honest and voluntary review.

Liam💘Justice! Great Story & Audible Listen🎧

What do you get when you two great authors collaborate together? One heck of a story of course, a story with plenty of drama, angst, twists, suspense and hot romance. And lets not forget to mention the great characters too, a mafia princess and a star football player. Justice Bexley is the daughter of leader of the organized crime “Diamond Syndicate”. She keeps her business on the legal side and is the owner of a new football team. Her one regret in life was letting the only man she ever loved go, she had her reasons but it broke and hardened his heart. That man being Liam Blake, a professional football player. He is recovering from an injury but that does not stop Justice from signing him to play for her new team. Her dumping him those years ago left him bitter and not interested in any longterm relationships, he has no plans to give her the time of day other than to show her what she missed out on. Things do not always go as plan. There is no denying the chemistry between them, but can he truly forgive her for breaking his heart? I loved how this story played out, it was well plotted and kept you on your toes and wanting to know what comes next. Really liked the family dynamics and how supportive Justice’s family was and how they looked out for her regardless of how strong and independent she was. HJ Bellus and Kathy Coopmans thank you for this great second chance romance and the emotional rollercoaster ride.

I listened to the Audible edition, Lacy Laurel and Logan McAllister are fabulous narrators and voice performers. They brought these characters to life, gave each their own voice and personality. You could hear the emotions of the characters and the drama of the story in their performance. They are entertaining storytellers and a pleasure to listen to. Thank you for another great listen🎧

Woah! Quite the story/performance!!

I have fallen for several of these authors work separately and at least one with them working together. They were flawlessly together!! Full Contact is stuffed to the brim with all the feelings!! I feel like Liam and Justice had a story that really worked well together. I loved that it felt real and not rushed. We meet up with several characters from other books and its seriously fun!!

The narrators did a superb job! Lacy Laurel is always full of heart and heat. I love her narrations. Logan McAllister was such a great contrast to Lacy. They have a fabulous chemistry together and just made the audiobook mush more enjoyable!

Audiobook review. I have read thousands of books and that’s not an exaggeration. When you’ve read this much, stories eventually start to feel familiar or recycled. Unfortunately, this was my experience.

This is a case of it’s not you, it’s me. The story is actually well written but nothing really struck me as unique or different. The elements that could have been leveraged, such as the mafia aspect, were left underdeveloped. This was a missed opportunity. Another was in the pacing. The antagonist of the story had this big role in building and setting up for a climax and when it came, I blinked and it was over.

Lacy Laurel is one of my favorite narrators. She did a great job injecting the story with a personality befitting our main characters. Her inflections, pace, tone, and pitch were great and she transitioned smoothly. Logan McAllister did a good job as well but had these odd pauses in his sentences periodically that made him sound almost robotic at times. Other than that, narration was solid.

Complimentary copy received and voluntarily reviewed.

Second chance romance

This was good stuff. There was not a lot of arguments between the main characters. They fought their issues together (for the most part) I enjoyed the characters. It kept my interest the whole time. Narration was great. I would recommend this book.

Second chance at true love.

Interesting. Fun. Steamy. Great listen. Mafia princess and superstar athlete. This was a great story, a fun listen. The story flowed pretty well, and the narrators meshed really well with the story. The chemistry between Justice and Li came through really well. And brought some extra oomph all around. Quite a captivating read/listen.

Sports/Mafia Romance

I really enjoyed this football/mafia book. It had action, drama and suspense as well as likable characters, sexual attraction and hot sex. Lacy and Logan did a great job bringing this story to life.

Really good narration

The narration of this book is pretty good, I always enjoy listening to Lacy Laurel, she has a great voice that brings the characters to life perfectly. Logan Mc Alister is also really good, I love his voice and his narration was perfect for the book.

In regards of the story, I couldn't get really well into it, I feel as if something was missing but I cannot point exactly what, I also didn't feel a chemistry between the main characters.
Thee story has a slow start, but around 30% into it starts to get better, and there were parts that I did enjoy.

Cute Story

I love Mafia romance! This is my first with the female character with ties to mafia and it was cute. I say cute because Mafia romance usually has a lot of violence but this one didn't. I don't need violence so didn't really bother me some might like it better. Two narrators is nice and I thought they both did a good job. Ironically I liked Logan McAllisters female voice more then his Male. His Male voice is so deep and growly but I'm not saying it's bad because it's not I just was blown away that he can take all the bass away to do a womans voice so well.

Liam and Justice!

While they were in college Liam and Justice fell in love however she was worried that the reputation of her family would ruin Liam’s chance at a professional football career. She loved her family and she loved Liam so she did what she thought was best and left Liam.

Years later her family is the proud owner and she is the manager of an expansion football team. They have signed Liam to be their new quarterback and if they can’t work through their pasts it could not only destroy his career but the team as well.

Liam and Justice have always belonged together however their journey is filled with drama, suspense and heat. I thought the narrators did a great job of bringing the story to life. 🎧 Audiobook Obsession
