When the weather turned cold, she turned south. She ended up in North Carolina, home to one of the most famed and eligible NFL football stars in the whole league; only she didn’t know that. She thought he was a businessman. Not being a huge fan, all she knew was that he was incredibly attractive, kind, generous, and that she was safe with him. Or was she?
His brand of fame proved to be all but deadly, but his fame wasn't nearly as lethal as his attraction. He kept her safe and protected. All except her heart.
I'm happy to be a part of the blog tour for The Most Important Catch. This book sounded so interesting to me, something right up my indulgence alley. My thanks to Lexi over at BookBug for allowing me to participate.
The premise of this book is a good one. I liked the beginning and the anticipation that built with Kelly and what she knew. Kelly is a smart one and very resourceful. I love the fighter spirit in her. She seems almost too good to be true as she can fix anything, build anything, move anything. She repairs and builds a whole house? Mostly by herself? Wow. And just by reading a book. That's some kind of girl, right? She cooks, she cleans, she bottles tomatoes and she rocks the formal wear. Don't be jealous. I'm not. ;)
I think it was Robby who stole the show though. He seemed more "real" to me, even though he was the super star. Kind, generous and wholly attractive. My, my, my. His imperfection? He didn't kiss Kelly soon enough.
The middle of the book dragged a bit for me. I wanted something more than fixing up the house. The time that Kelly and Robby spend together is sweet but hearing all about the framing and tile work got a bit old. I guess I was looking for a bit more action? A bit more romance? I don't know.
The ending was good. Satisfying and happily ever after. That's the way I like 'em. Oh, and I think the cover of the book is great too. :)

Jaclyn M. Hawkes grew up in Utah with 6 sisters, 4 brothers and any number of pets. (It was never boring!) She received a Bachelor’s degree, had a career, and traveled extensively before settling down to her life’s work of being the mother of four magnificent and sometimes challenging children. She loves shellfish, the outdoors, the youth, and hearing her children laugh. She and her fine husband, their family, and their sometimes very large pets, now live in a mountain valley in northern Utah, where it smells like heaven and kids still move sprinkler pipe.
