Stacia Palmer had one goal in life–to become an NFL quarterback’s wife.
For the past three years, she’s seduced her way through the university’s football line-up. But when she finally has a quarterback fresh off the draft, Stacia experiences a shocking change of heart. One that sends her back to the place she never thought she’d return to.
Once there, she finds that no one believes her. Least of all Pace Larson, her sexy on-again off-again ex who has never quite gotten over her leaving him for someone else. Of course, he’s now the starting quarterback and determined to claim her as his prize.
But can Stacia give him a second chance when he’s toyed with her emotions into the fourth quarter? Or will they run out of time?
My Review –
4 Change for the Better Stars!!
Thank you so very much InkSlinger PR for sending me a copy of Silver!! I am extremely honored and grateful!! (:
This was my first time reading Ms.Linde’s work and I liked this drama filled read! After hearing so many things about the All That Glitters Series I glad to finally pick up one of the books in the series! Football, love, rumors, lies, and betrayal all collide in this tale! Even though the characters ticked me off majorly at times I had to keep on reading to find out what revelations would arise next! It wasn’t boring in the least bit. Silver is about Stacia’s journey to reinventing herself and Pace who wants nothing more but to prove her wrong about himself. It was very frustrating at times, sexy, hilarious, and shocking. Ms.Linde created a story that shows we all have the power to change and go after the things we want in life especially dreams. It’s never too late to find out who you want to be in this world. I’m looking forward to picking up the rest of the books in the series. 🙂
Stacia Palmer was a character who thought she knew what she wanted out of life. When certain things come to light that she cannot ignore she re-evaluate’s her life. She never thought she’d run into the one man she ever thought she could love. I really admired the fact that she was determined to make something of herself even if others judged her. She wasn’t the kins of person to back down. At some points I could’ve smacked her and shaken some sense into her at the same time. I didn’t really care for her group of friends but I did like Whitney. I hoped in the end she’d define herself by her present not by her past and face her feelings.
Pace Larson was a character who was a quarterback. He lived and breathed football. After losing the girl of his dreams years before he was more focused than ever on winning her back. During the majority of the first half of the book I questioned his motives a lot and had no clue what his endgame was. I wished he’d had his very own POV but I felt like I got a good grip of who he was as a character through Stacia’s eyes. I wanted to punch him for some of his actions as well but I couldn’t help but grin when his smirking and arrogant self appeared. He very much an overprotective Alpha. I hoped in the end my mind would change about him and that he’d fight for Stacia.
I highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a read that will remind you of your favorite reality show where the mayhem doesn’t stop and love is only the beginning. There are a lot of jaw dropping moments and many “No way!” Moments! I absolutely love that cover! It reminds me of the hero and heroine perfectly. I sure hope Whitney gets her own book!! Can’t wait to read the other books and more of Ms.Linde’s work! If you haven’t already One-Clicked Buy it Today!! 4 Stars all around!! 🙂
Stacia felt a presence at her shoulder. She recognized his cologne before she even looked up. It smelled like desire and late-night sex marathons.
“What do you want?” Stacia asked, not looking up.
“Just coming to check on you,” Pace said in a sexy low tone that sent a shot of need straight between her legs.
Damn him for being able to do that to me!
She jerked her head up. “Why?”
“Because you look miserable, even from across the room.”
“I do not!”
He raised an eyebrow, and she had to keep from sighing. That face. God, if he wasn’t such an asshole…
“The hair flip earlier, Pink? Really? Sure sign of distress. You practically called me over here.”
“Don’t call me that,” she said through gritted teeth.
He smirked at her response.
“And I didn’t call you over here. I don’t even want to see you.”
“You can talk to me, you know.” He leaned his hip against the bar. He was almost touching her but not quite. She could feel the heat of his skin. “Come on, let’s go outside. Away from all this noise.”
“If you think for one second that I’m going to go anywhere with you, you’re insane,” she said, straightening.
He brushed her hair off one shoulder and just barely skimmed his finger across her exposed collarbone. She stiffened. Her entire body throbbed. No one else elicited these primal emotions from her. Not even the guy she’d given her virginity to. The guy no one knew about.
“I promise I won’t touch you,” he growled out. “Unless you beg me to.”
Stacia smacked him in the chest and stormed away. What an arrogant jackass! How dare he say those things to her! For all he knew, she was still dating Marshall. Pace was so testy over the fact that he thought she’d slept with Marshall when they were together, yet here he was, seducing her, while he still believed she was with Marshall. Ass!
Pace chuckled behind her. “Come on, Stacia. I’m just messing with you.”
He followed her across the crowded room until she reached the restroom. Then, he did exactly what he’d said he wouldn’t. He grabbed her arm and kept her from entering a place he wouldn’t follow.
“Seriously, what’s up?” he asked.
“Do you really want to know?” Fury and also desperation coated her features. She really wanted to tell someone. She wanted it off her chest.
“Yeah. Though this fire is pretty hot.” He raised an eyebrow.
“God, is everything just a joke to you?” she asked.
His eyes shot straight through her. “Not everything.”
“Feels like it. I feel like a joke to you.”
“Most things, Pink,” he said, stepping closer, “but not you. Never you.”
Stacia tensed as she forgot the world around her. Pace had a way of doing that—making her lose herself. But all she did by losing herself was open herself up for him to hurt her. Time and time again.
“Pace,” she said through a shuddering breath.
“I won’t take what isn’t mine.”
“I just still consider you mine.”
