Loved it

This is a sweet, clean Christian romance. However, don't be out off by the Christian part, it isn't preachy, just faith based. Tucker has anger issues to overcome and because of those, he gets assigned community service. There he meets Shelby the director. Eventually feelings develop between them. Tucker is able to use his status as a pro football player to help the youth community center raise the funds they need to remain open so youth without another place to go can gather. This is a good read that deals with over coming anger, forgiveness, family relationships, etc.

sweet story with a lesson

I didn't realize this took place during Christmas and I normally only read/listen to Christmas books in December. it's not a major part of the story, so it's not bad to listen to during any time of year. it's a pretty simple story with with a lesson. nothing too crazy. I really like that the author narrates her own books. and she's actually good at it!

Not necessarily a football story

Run With My Heart by Lorana Hoopes

I started this audiobook and didn’t want to turn it off. I don’t like football - at all! Let me just get that out of the way, first. You do not have to be a football fan to enjoy this book.

Tucker was not fitting in with his new team after being traded. He had anger issues and they led him to a bar fight. This error in judgment was followed by a requirement to do community service at a local community center.

Tucker learns forgiveness, love, redemption, healing and a sense of community that he has never felt before. And did I say love with the beautiful director?

I was given a code for this book by the author and promised I would leave an unbiased and true review of the book.

Wonderful

This well written book emphasizes how anger, bitterness, and holding on to grudges can cause so much heartache and hurt in our lives. With wonderful storytelling and realistic characters, the author shares a reminder of how God can take any situation and turn it into something beautiful and worthwhile. Recommend this inspiring sweet romance.
I received a free copy of this book and have chosen to give my honest opinion.

Tucker & Shelby!

It's a skill to teach and entertain without realizing you are being taught and Lorana Hoopes has it in spades. This book has so many little lessons, all leading to the big one and I heard them all while I was falling for Tucker and Shelby. Tucker is a professional football player with an anger problem. When he goes to far, he is forced to do community service in a local center. Here he meets Shelby, and learns there is more to life than just him. Her faith is strong, and she loves her job. But will it be enough to help Tucker find his way? I love this book! The sports romance is a big draw for me, the unmistakable draw to helping others, and the finding of faith to help you through are just a few things that kept me enthralled. Hoopes narrates the story perfectly, letting us feel all the emotions. A great start to this series and I can't wait to see what else is coming.

A story worth your time

I have read and/or listened to a few books by this author and this one is by far my favorite.
This clean, Christian romance, centers around Tucker Jackson and Shelby Doll.
Tucker is a football player with an attitude and anger issues. When he gets in trouble in a bar, his team sends him to do community service.
Shelby runs the local community center. One in dire need to money and upgrades. But the funds are dwindling and when Tucker comes to do his service hours, she sees this as possible solution to her problem by offering a clinic lead by him.
As we get to meet these two, we realize that Tucker’s issues stem from the loss of his mother at a young age, and a father that became absent. A reminder that our experiences as a child do in fact affect us as adults.
This touching story is well worth your time.
