Publisher's Summary

He was someone who belonged on the cover of Sports Illustrated instead of in my small beach town.

A sexy, cocky Australian soccer star named Finn was the last person I expected to be living with for two weeks. He showed up at my brother’s house on his wedding night, hot, drunk, and very much not married. Next thing I knew, we were roommates, spending nights watching TV and getting to know one another.  

Those two weeks turned into more than either of us bargained for. He was fresh off a broken heart and I had a boyfriend. I wasn’t supposed to fall for the jilted jock, especially when I knew we’d be going our separate ways. All good things must come to an end, right? 

Except he’s not letting me go without a fight.

Appreciated a new listen from Rebecca Jenshak!

So far I have experienced that the quality of the books in the Hero Club series are of a huge variety, many not so good. It's also confusing that the same characters seem to have reaationships with more than one person, as I had already heard Adele's story (also as Chance's sister from Australia) in Filthy Firefighter, but there her love interest was called Hayden Flynn.

This one I liked though! In my opinion Rebecca Jenshak is a solid writer of romances starring jocks, and I really love her Smart Jocks series. This was not as good as the books in that series, they are all a solid 5 - both as stories and narration are concerned, especially the male narrators. Rupert Channing is always good as an Australian, and even though I'm not a big fan of Muffy Newtown/Erin Mallon, she is very experienced and delivers quality (I don't like her voice, but that's a personal preference). As the book was included in my Audible Escape membership, it was absolutely worth the listen.

overall good listen

maybe a bit of a spoiler alert

story touched on issues we have experienced. doubt , heartache, addiction ( in recovery) self worth.


it started strong and even with the addition sadness it was inspiring.

Flinn is a good man stood up at his wedding who finds himself with a cat he bought for his ex and nowhere he can stay with the cat. so he spends two weeks with his friends sister. they become friends nothing happens but feelings

here is the thing. this is where I start to lose interest. Flinn becomes... lost when he loses Adele. ( the friend)

Adele being a recovering addict didn't educate him or explain anything. if you are that far along and able to be in social situations, teachings the language and giving pointers to a friend who you know just doesn't makes sense.
part of recovery is taking responsibility of your actions. Adele did not. as far as I could tell there were not any intermittent AA meetings. AA is not just about the addiction, it is about the behavior.

the writing was done well
performance excellent

think this is a good story, it lost the plot.

Love these characters!!

I really enjoyed this story from Rebecca Jenshak and I love the whispersync price that allowed me to listen to this book! It was well narrated overall, although I thought Muffy Newtown's accent for Adele was a little too subtle and inconsistent. However, overall, I enjoyed listening to this story about Adele, Chance's sister (from the prior Hero's Club) and Finn, a soccer star.

I loved Finn. Left at the altar, he was a sweetheart and I loved watching their friendship grow, which felt very organic and natural. I really liked Adele, although I thought she overreacted a bit to a few things which turned me off her a few times but I always came back because those two together were so great. I loved seeing Chance and his family (including Pixie the goat!) again and it was a great spin off for the series. Overall, truly an enjoyable story and a great addition to the Hero Club! (less)

Worth A Credit

The hero club books have been hit or miss this one was definitely a hit. A strong yet flawed heroine. An alpha hero who gets it wrong but keeps trying because he’s found, the one. Throw in Chance, Aubrey, CJ, Pixy and Marshmallow and you’ve got a story about discovering what truly matters in life. This one worth the 5 stars.

Story so much better than the cheesy title & cover

Loved it! Much more depth than the typical contemporary romance. Some humor elements with just stretches of longing and loneliness till of course the HEA. Now to the narrators, Muffy Newtown’s muddled American/Australian accent confused me at first as I had passing thoughts it was a narrator not paying attention to accents of different characters getting lazy; however, all made sense when the character explained how she had grown up in both countries with the accent reflecting that fact. Kudos to Muffy for achieving that realistic effect. Rupert Channing is a delight to listen to and I hope to hear more of his work. His reading felt real and emotive. Just wonderful work!

Rebecca Does It Again

This is my second book in the Hero Club and I must admit that I was a little lost with some of these characters stories. I mainly focused on Flynn and Adele's story and what was going on in this book. I found the writing to be excellent and the characters to be well developed. I loved the story from start to finish. I have yet to read a bad book by Rebecca Jenshak.


As usual, I loved Muffy Newtown. She always does a wonderful job. This was my second time hear Rupert Channing and I had forgotten the first time. It was a little jarring at first but I found his voice to be really nice after I got used to it.

Finn for the Win

These stories in the hero club just keep getting better. Jilted Finn definitely ended up with the win in the end with Adele. Adele having her only demons helped Finn out when the worse thing could have happen to him. I very much enjoyed that this wasn't an insta love between these two.

Great addition

Sweet, fun, funny, romantic and of course a perfect HEA. Wonderful narration. Though a romance it touches on some tough subject matter and does so with kindness and respect.

I really liked this story!! 🥰👄💥❤

I have been listening to these Hero books and thought I had a favorite but I really liked this one and Rupert. Muffy/Erin is a pro so that goes without saying. I loved Finn and Adeles story. I loved the evolution of their attraction and Adele's awareneness of her past yet recognizing she has choices in her future. This is the 2nd book I've listened to narrated by Rupert and I love him. He just made my top 10 list and could move up the more I listen to him. To me he's that good. The narration was different in that you got Adele's POV the first half then Finn narrated his POV the remaining half. It wasn't a problem for me. I've enjoyed the development of the story and characters and Finn's persistence and her brother as her protector. My husband won't appreciate this but I want me a Finn too...lol. 😋
