Book Summary:

Fast-paced and fun these swoon-worthy Texas football romances will keep you up all night. A collection of five clean romance novels. These tough Titans are looking for a sassy woman who can bring them to their knees.

The Fearless Groom:
A bachelor auction, a hot football player, and the right woman to bring him to his knees.
Izzy Knight walked away from her father’s billions and his Titans football team to become a nurse practitioner at a children’s hospital. She’s busy and accomplished and certainly has no room in her life for a larger-than-life football player who goes through women faster than she completes a shift at the hospital.
Xavier Newton loves football but hates the games that go along with it. When the owner of the Titans forces him and his buddies to be sold like cattle at a bachelor auction he barely endures the event, until a feisty brunette bids half a million dollars for him. He’s completely drawn to Izzy, but when he finds out her father is the owner of the Titans sparks fly and everybody’s loyalties are challenged.
Can these two find love when they don’t know who’s waiting to tackle them from the blindside?

The Trustworthy Groom:
A lonely football player, a damaged bride, and the fake marriage that can heal them both.
Hailey Knight has two choices: fall prey to a predator who is out to own her and destroy her football team, or marry a man she’s just met. True, her fake husband can make her quiver with a touch, gets her jokes, and is patience personified, but she knows better than anyone how quickly charm can turn ugly.
Brady Giles has dealt with a sweetheart stalker for two years and has no hope of shaking the annoyance. He steps in to rescue the beautiful and feisty Hailey Knight from a leering idiot and somehow ends up engaged to her.
The marriage is supposed to help them both out of sticky situations, but instead turns into a media hailstorm with lies and attacks coming from all sides. When Hailey falls in love with her fake husband and danger lurks around every corner, she knows it’s time to run, but Brady has never given up on an impossible battle.
Can these two trust each other or will the media and predators tear them apart?

The Beastly Groom:
A reclusive, billionaire football star. A reality show host looking to expose his personal life. Will this hero turn into a beast to protect his daughter and his privacy?
Knox Sherman, aka the Beast, left the military to raise his best friend’s daughter and play professional football. When an irresistible reality show host buys a date with him at a charity auction, it’s all he can do to keep her away from his heart and his home.
Ema Kahue is fighting her way into the top rankings of television. Interviewing the beast will propel her career to stardom. Yet when she’s given a sneak peek into his heart and his relationship with his daughter, Ema wants a shot at taming the Beast for life.
Can these two overcome repeated misunderstandings and a vicious predator to give love a chance?

The Irresistible Groom:
A vivacious sports agent loses her memory and her safe, perfectly-planned life. The only hope is a tough security specialist who for some reason she’s never allowed herself to fall for.
Claire Tucker is a feisty and successful sports agent. When she wakes up with amnesia she has to rely on a handsome security specialist, which doesn’t seem too bad … until she learns she’s known him for years and has repeatedly rejected his date offers. When Brig proves irresistible to her, she realizes she needs to guard her heart until she gets some answers or her past will catch up to her.

The Determined Groom:
A broken football star becomes the trainer to an elite female athlete who can’t decide if she should tell off the flirty billionaire or fall in love with him.


So I am not much of a football fan, but this book sucked me right in. Xavier is part of the Triple Threat, 3 amazing football players. Not only are they a force to be reckoned with on the field, but they are also like brothers off the field. I am quite curious how the stories of the others turn out. Izzy may be the team owner’s daughter, but she wants nothing to do with her Dad or the team. Sparks fly when her dad coerces her to bid on Xavier so that the money will be donated to the children’s hospital that means so much to her. Xavier and Izzy are unprepared for the strong feelings that pull them together. I loved cheering these two on as they learned to trust each other amid the chaos of life going on around them. Who wouldn’t have a soft spot for a big tough football player who loves his mama and looks for ways to care for underprivileged children? He is too good to be true. Izzy’s independence and sauciness reel Xavier right in. Together they have to learn if their feelings for each other are stronger than the forces that surround them.

Such a sigh-worthy groom. Who can resist a man who is so protective and patient? Not to mention completely attractive. I enjoyed the marriage of convenience storyline. Plenty of twists and turns kept me turning the pages way too late into the night. While the outcome was predictable, it was so fun watching Hailey and Brady get there. I enjoyed getting a peek into the lives of characters from earlier in the series too. So easy to get attached to these characters. Cami Checketts keeps me coming back for more.

I am always up for a good fairy-tale retelling. Add Cami Checketts’ quick wit and fun storytelling and this book was a sure win. There are some fabulous references to Disney’s Beauty and the Beast and a bit of The Hulk thrown in there too. The references fit and the story flowed. It didn’t seem forced at all. I loved the characters and want to see more of their lives. A strong, protective hero is always a draw. Watching Ema (and Claire) try to tame him was entertaining. Ema’s television job seems like so much fun. Her spunky personality made me smile often. I am looking forward to Claire’s story next.?

Loved, Loved, Loved! This was a quick read, but it really made me happy. Claire and her sister are so fun together. Brig seems perfect in every way. I won’t share my favorite part and give away the plot line. I will say it involved prayer. I was touched by how the characters overcame their weaknesses. This story was fast moving and kept me engaged the whole time. I want more of these characters…

I just can’t help falling in love with the wonderful characters in Cami Checketts’ books. Emmet and Cambree both have so much integrity. Their passion for their sports and the way they push themselves physically brings them together. Cambree has a heart of gold. Emmet loves her for that and has a pure heart himself. The chemistry between them is so much fun! Now I am hoping there are books about his brothers available or soon to come.

I really loved this one! 5 stars.
