Falling into Drew by Harriet Schultz

She stumbled. He caught her.
She didn’t know who he was until she saw his face in a magazine.

When New York book editor Kate Porter trips and falls into Drew O’Connor’s arms, she has no idea that the man with the drop-dead looks is an Olympic champion skier, the face of famous luxury brands, and a serial dater of models and actresses. Their attraction is immediate but neither does anything about it. He rides off on his Harley and she returns to her office.

The chemistry between them is undeniable when Drew’s agent brings his reluctant client to Kate’s office a few weeks later to pitch a book about his life. As they move forward, their sexual tension makes it difficult to maintain a professional distance. The relationship quickly heats up, but Drew’s fame, dark past, and a life-changing secret test their feelings for each other.

Kate Porter is an editor at a publishing company in New York. On her way back to the office, she stops at a church to light a candle for her uncle who passed away. After she prays, she starts to stand and stumbles, when she falls into a gorgeous man, who looks like a bad boy with his leather jacket and climbs on a Harley. She is relieved they didn't exchange numbers. Because she doesn't need a bad boy in her life.

Drew O'Connor is a former Olympic Gold medal winner and model. While he is at church setting up mass for his gran,  he catches a woman that stumbles and she makes him feel things he hasn't felt before. When she gets defensive with him, he turns and rides away. But he can't stop thinking about her.

When Drew and Kate meet again, the attraction is even stronger. Does she give in to the pull she feels towards him? Can Drew protect her from his crazy life? Can a second chance be in the making for them both? Will things from his past ruin what has started between him and Kate?

This is a great second chance romance, but I would have liked more at the end. I hope there will be more from these two, and maybe a story with Charles and Liz. This is a first for me from this author and I look forward to reading more from her.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book, even staying up ‘til 3 a.m. on a work night before finally giving up the ghost because I *had* to go to work the next day. This is a solid romance with flawed characters who know enough about life to know that without second chances, life wouldn't be worth much at all.

Drew O'Connor doesn't trust easily. Not many people know Drew's whole story and he wants to keep it that way. Being a champion skier, he's watched moments of his life played out in the tabloids for the past ten years. He just wants to be normal, to lead a life publicity-free.

Katie Porter is an editor with a publishing house in New York. It’s her job to craft and sell the stories that authors and agents bring to her. She has to admit she's intrigued when a sports agent contacts her with a proposal: a biography of a recently retired sports star. When she finds out that star is Olympian and champion skier Drew O'Connor, she's even more so.

The chemistry is palpable between the characters, and the romance between them is believable and leaves you rooting for the couple when life throws them roadblocks.

Also, the secondary romance in this book deserves its own book.

This is the first book I have read by Ms. Schultz, but will not be the last. She has an easy writing style and a pace which I enjoyed. The plot is not particularly complex, although there are some interesting twists – but the characters are easy to get to know, and a good mix of fun and intense. Drew has been attracting women for years as a successful athlete and now a model for leading brands, so Kate's initial ignorance about who he is and her wariness, is incredibly attractive. It is a great setup for the unfolding storyline. Kate is an interesting mix of naive and feisty. She discovers things about herself when they are together, and the chemistry between them is undeniable.

A good read, with some new twists to the age old story of two people meeting and falling for each other.

Harriet Schultz is an award-winning journalist who discovered that it's more fun to make things up than to write about real world events. Falling into Drew is her fourth novel and her first contemporary romance. Her other books — Legacy of the Highlands, A Legacy of Revenge, and Legacy of Love — are a contemporary romantic suspense series that have been #1 bestsellers on Amazon. Each is a full-length novel with no cliffhangers!
