Publisher's Summary

At a boxing gym in Chicago, Mary Monahan accidentally knocks out the most handsome man she's ever met. After she wakes him up with a few slaps and some smelling salts, the very first thing he does is ask her out for ribs and beer. His name is Jimmy. He looks like a Gillette model. And he's just too hunky to resist.

Jimmy "The Falcon" Falconi is mystified that Mary has absolutely no idea who he is. Mystified and refreshed. He is, after all, not your everyday NFL quarterback. He shops at Costco, has a soft spot for Pinterest, and is in the midst of an epic losing streak.

Jimmy falls for Mary fast and hard, the way he does everything - balls out and like it's fourth and long. And he realizes he's finally met his match. That stamina he's so proud of? Doesn't stand a chance against her Kegels.

But what they don't know is she's also his new physical therapist, recently hired by the Bears to work on his rotator cuff...and groin injury. If she can't help him, he'll be traded faster than they can say "offensive penetration". Contains mature themes.

Oh Jimmy you`re so fine.

Big fan of Nicole Rendell`s books so I was very excited to listen to her first audiobook.
Jillian Macie portrayed Mary perfectly for me, Sean has one of the loveliest, deepest and sexy voice`s I have heard in a while. If you want a love story with lots of deep and passionate moments, and let’s not forget smoking hot sex scenes look no further.

Baller vs. Butterball (you'll see lol)

Listened to this one on Audible and really enjoyed the performances given by Sean Crisden and Jillian Macie. I laughed out loud so many times. The story was interesting sprinkled with a little emotional angst and a twist. Not to mention the down and dirty delivered by a sexy, sweet, Quarterback. Very light read/listen. Perfect companion for a rainy day doing chores. Made me feel like I had friends keeping me company. The kind of friends that always put a smile on your face and make you feel like you're getting away with something whenever you hang together. If you're looking to be entertained, this should hit the spot perfectly. I believe it's my favorite Sean Crisden narration to date!! Plain simple fun!!

Read it don't listen to it

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

Read it!

What other book might you compare Hail Mary to and why?

What didn’t you like about Sean Crisden and Jillian Macie ’s performance?

Sean Crisden should never narrate a woman!!!!

Was Hail Mary worth the listening time?

Great Book

This was a great book. I love the erotic parts, but more than anything I enjoyed it was just about sex. I have read those books that all the context was, was just sex, no real storyline. This was not that type of book. Yes it was erotic, but it also has a great storyline.

Excellent with one exception

Fun book that keeps your attention. Fun little twists along the way. Only thing bad about it is the numerous times that the word goddamn is used. Very disappointing:(

Cliche

It’s as if it were written by a teen girl fantasizing about being with a famous quarterback. Said quarterback is struggling and she is the solutions to his struggles (so stupid) and the way she supposedly got him to overcome his mental (oh and physical impairment because she’s his miracle PT) was so absurd, written into one of many gratuitous and uninteresting sex scenes. And lastly, the narration. I listened to it at 1.5x speed and it still drags on, the female so painfully slowly narrates it, it’s mind numbing (and she’s even slower doing his lines) and the male narrator has a nice voice, for a sci fi novel or something where the character doesn’t have to sounds sexy, he’s too fatherly and clerical sounding. This wasn’t worth the discounted $4 price it was so incredibly stupid, thoughtless, unoriginal and full of cliches. Oh, and why all the mentions of Costco and the show How It’s Made and also Stranger Things? I’d never read this writer again.

Great book but a little winded

It was a great story.....rough around the edges yet soft touches everywhere! I really enjoyed listening to it. The characters were easy to like and you were rooting for them pretty much from the beginning! Only major complaint was to much rambling on details that made not a bit of difference. Eventually telling me what the decor looks like just annoys me! The book probably could have been several chapters shorter....but no less interesting if some of the early long winded thoughts and details would have been cut!!

Also, the narration was awesome!! I liked both male and female performers this time and will search those two out again!!

TWO THUMBS UP

A sweet romance without too much angst. Great narration and likable, lovable characters.
I would have liked to see the knock-out Mary I met in the first chapter do more boxing and show of strength in the rest of the book. Mary began working woth Jimmy and although a big deal was made about their not fratenizing, it was done without much stealth or any repercussions. It was an easy listen and it kept me up late even with it's predictable HEA.

Hail Mary! Yes!

I laughed and cried. And laughed some more. This story has a good balance. Realistic characters that will have you cheering and wanting to slap sense into them. My heart had a workout. Wishing there were more books. I must confess, I purchased this audible because it was on sale! If I had known how good it was, I would have paid full price!
The narrators were very entertaining. Sean Crisden was fantastic. Will look for more of his work. Loved it! Thank you Nicola Rendell!
