The Final Quarter by Anne Lange


A quarterback facing the end of his career must come to peace with his past, and accept his present, before he can move on with his future.

Mitch Ryland accomplished what his father said he never would—he made something of himself.

When his wife suggests she’d like to start a family, Mitch is thrown for a loop. He’s never told her about his life before he ended up with his foster parents, or his plans never to become a father. So when he’s taken out of the game, his failings from the past come back to haunt him, and Mitch blames his injury on his loss of focus. He’s unprepared for his career as a professional quarterback to be over. Nor is he ready to tell his wife about why football is so important to him. He’d rather put emotional and physical distance between them and focus on getting back in the game.

Serena Ryland has dreamed of becoming a mother. But when she mentions the idea to her husband, he freezes her out and she has no idea why. She’s worried that if they don’t start talking soon, she’ll lose him forever. When he refuses to come home to mend from an injury, she takes matters into her own hands, determined to spend more time with him, hoping to reignite the romance in their relationship. But she’s unprepared for the things she learns on this trip. Her husband has been carrying a few secrets that just might change the outlook of their future.

While I found this to be a quick, easy read, I also grew quite frustrated with Mitch. He seemed to have issues listening. I understood that he didn't want to deal with his injury because it'd take him out of the game, but still. Annoyed me.

Then his past issues. I wish he'd have manned up because the way everything came to a resolution was too smooth and easy for me to even see why he was so stressed about it to begin with.

However, that being said, I liked the scenes between him and his wife that showed the closeness they had and the love that he had for his wife. I loved that the couple was a married couple and was going through a rough time, but you didn't feel like you were missing out on a lot by not having been there through their courtship and the early years of their marriage, which is huge kudos to the author since most of the stories I've read with married couples make me feel like I've missed so much.

I did wish we'd gotten a bit more about how on earth they'd dated and married and been together for as long as they had without discussing their past much.

Overall a good read and I'd read further in the series.

Shoes are her addiction, but books are her passion.  Anne Lange grew up with a love for reading. If you take a close look, she’s got either a book, her Kindle or her Kobo—maybe all three—tucked into her bag or a pocket when she leaves the house. You know, just in case there’s time to sneak in a chapter or ten.  Anne reads many genres of romance, but prefers to write sexy stories, often with a dash of humor, and usually with a side of those sinful pleasures your mom never told you about.

Oh, and always a happily ever after.

While embarking on this wild journey of becoming a romance author, Anne juggles a full time job and a family. Not always successfully. Who needs a clean house every day?  And what’s wrong with cereal for dinner? She lives in Ontario, Canada with her wonderfully supportive husband, three awesome kids who are growing up way too fast, and Rocky the bearded dragon.
