Publisher's Summary

Charlie Wild knows how to score. On and off the field, he’s been a force to be reckoned with since his father taught him how to throw a spiral in the back pasture of Wildhorse Ranch. But a recent injury calls into question his ability to play football and points a finger at his wild child reputation. He’s been given an ultimatum: overhaul his image by renovating his hometown hospital or get off the field.

The last thing Dr. Dylan Rose needs is yet another man telling her what to do, and certainly not what to do with her hospital. She’d left Houston and the sports stars she’d fixed there, tired of watching big, bulky men beat each other up for fun. So when Charlie Wild limps into her hospital, she wants nothing more than to fix his hot body up and see that great ass walk out the door.

Charlie is taken by the sexy doctor. Her sweet smile hides a sharp tongue that he enjoys baiting just about as much as he loves kissing it. He’s on board for following her prescriptions and more than willing to teach her new ways to score in the sheets. But when it comes to the final seconds of this play, he’s going to have to decide what is more important: The doctor he’s learned to love, or the game he just can’t quit....

Fun, quick listen

Healing the Quarterback by Leslie North was a fast paced, fun listen that clocked in at a little under three and a half hours. The story does have a few sex scenes, but you do get your HEA. Charlie and Dylan were entertaining characters and though this type of story is nothing new, Ms. North did a good job putting a unique spin on it.

Rebecca Roberts did a good job with narrating all of the various characters and though I didn't like Charlie's voice at all (just didn't fit the character in my opinion), she did a great job making the different characters unique. I'd listen to another of her performances again, no problem. I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher for an honest review.

Healing Quarterback Review...

Good plot - about the right length. Narrator mastered both male and female characters, as well as the kids voiceover.

Doctor and Her Professional Football Player

Dylan is a prominent orthopedic doctor who is attractive and spends lots of time discouraging football players advances
Prior to a football game she meets Charley the star quarterback who has a reputation of a playboy. They have a connection until he lets an ex cheerleader sit on his lap and he ignores Dylan.
Charley is injured and is sent to Dylan (who he didn’t know was the prominent dr in the small town where he grew up.
Dylan discovers he is more than he appears to be and he begins to realize that football isn’t the only important thing in life
A sweet story of discovery and opening oneself up to possibilities. Charley isn’t as bad as many professional athletes in sports romances and you can’t help but like him
The narrator did a decent job. The Texas accent and male voices were a little over the top for me
Worth a listen..I enjoy Leslie North books..romance and sweetness and men you don’t feel disgusted with 😊
Worth the time. Not a
Long story but the right length for the story it tells

Charlie and Dylan

This is book two and I have not read or listened to book one, but that did not matter at all this story is definitely a standalone.

Charlie and Dylan meet at a game, he bumps into her and invites her into the teams box to watch the game, he doesn't even find out her name before he leaves her totally alone, not the best way to win the girl. Charlie is the star quarterback for his team and lives for the game. He's also self centered and spoiled, so much so that his image is in need of a makeover and he employs a whole team to do just that.

Dylan is a doctor specialising in sports injuries who has moved to a small town which has a great hospital so she can get away from people just like Charlie. When Charlie is injured on the field and goes home to Wildhorse Ranch to heal he is sent to the local hospital where the specialist is, you guessed it, Dylan.

Now the fun begins! Charlie and Dylan spark off each other from the very beginning, he won't listen to her professional opinions, he's only interested in her personally. She tells Charlie no and intends to keep their relationship strictly professional, office meetings only but hospital politics and fate has a different plan for her.

I loved the chemistry and heat generated between these two, the storyline was entertaining and the hidden side we see of Charlie totally changed my view of him. This one is well worth listening to. I now want to go back and listen to book one.

I love a good sports romance

Ha ha, I loved the first meeting between Charlie and Dylan, and the second for that matter, talk about funny! Well, for the reader, it wouldn't be so much fun to experience. The dialogue and the chemistry/tension in this pairing was great, it was a lot of fun to listen to.

I had to suspend my disbelief at times, some of the things that happen in this book would not happen in real life, but they made for a fun and interesting story so I didn't mind. After all, this is fiction, not a true story.

I haven't read the first book in this series but this book worked well as a standalone, I suspect that it had spoilers for book one, but they didn't seem like they were too significant.

I thought the narrator did a great job, the character voices were excellent and the whole narration has a great flow to it.

I received a free copy of this book from the author and/or narrator and/or publisher and I voluntarily wrote this honest review.

Football Romance

I enjoyed this quick listen for the most part but I didn't think that Charlie was a very likable character. He didn't show much respect for Dylan and also didn't seem to care how his antics affected her career. I wanted Dylan to be a stronger woman and not give in to his advances so easily. Dating a patient is an ethical no-no and she should have stuck to her guns until he was no longer in her care. If their feelings were real, they could waited until a more appropriate time to explore a relationship. Regarding the narration, I thought that Charlie's voice was a little creepy, which didn't help the likeability factor with his character. Other than that, the narrator did a nice job with the story. Overall it was a pretty entertaining listen.

Enjoyable Read....

I enjoyed this story. It is a great love story between injured, stubborn quarterback Charlie and his beautiful, equally as stubborn doctor. I love the chemistry between the two. Although the storyline of an injured football player going back to their small hometown is not a new one, Leslie North did a great job of putting her own spin on the story. I fell in love with the characters. I only wish I had read the story and not listening to the audiobook. I really did not like the narrators "Charlie voice." It was a creepy voice to be honest and it make it more difficult for me to think hot football player. I would recommend this book to anyone looking for a great read, but I would not recommend the audiobook version.
