Fresh Fiction Review

In the Red Zone

Romance Contemporary

All-Star linebacker Frank Kelly is as well-known for his off the field activities as he is for the on field ones. When he finds himself in trouble one more time a well connected woman comes to his rescue. As a player he is use to being IN THE RED ZONE but this time there is more at stake than a game.

Kiana Dyer is the daughter of a Hall of Fame football player, but the charity organization that she took over after his death isn't getting the media attention she needs. A staged romance with the famous Frank Kelly is just what she hopes will help her out.

So after agreeing to be her doting boyfriend for two months Frank and Kiana get what they both want. His reputation is repaired and the charity organization gets the much needed attention. Two things go wrong, Frank realizes he isn't pretending anymore and a scandal surrounding the charity has Kiana scrambling to clear her name. Will the once reputed love 'em and leave 'em man be able to stand by her side and help her clear up the mess that now affects both of them?

IN THE RED ZONE gives you everything you look for when reading a romance. It is warm, sweet yet spicy but also takes you to the next level with the danger that Frank and Kiana face together. Frank is a player, and I mean more than football, his nickname is after all Romeo. We get to watch as he grows up and faces the truth when he knows what he wants and what he has to do to claim his heart. Kiana has had a rough life and wants to make a difference in the world. What starts out as her using him turns into so much more that even she imagined.

Author Crista McHugh is not afraid to touch on social issues such as gambling, racial differences and abuse which can all be found in this one, but done in a way that makes you aware but don't feel preached to. This is book six of the Kelly Brothers series and though some who read these might find the formula comparable the characters and situations are different ... but, of course, they have all led to love and happily ever after. Another winner by Ms. McHugh!

SUMMARY

All-Star linebacker Frank Kelly is as well-known for his off-the-field hits as he is for his on-field ones. When a dance club brawl ends with him in handcuffs again, he’s rescued by a well-connected woman who can get the charges dropped in exchange for a small favor. If he’ll agree to play the part of a doting boyfriend for two months, she’ll keep him out of the slammer and help restore his reputation.

Kiana Dyer may be the daughter of a Hall of Fame football player, but the charity organization she set up in his honor isn’t getting the media attention she’d hoped for. A staged romance with Frank Kelly is just the ticket she needs to get in the spotlight. As the lines between fake and real start to blur, she begins to wonder if bailing him out was the best call she’s ever made. Just when everything seems to be falling perfectly in place, scandal surrounds her charity, and she’s the one left scrambling to clear her name.
