    One thought on “Hail Mary

    1. Carol [Goodreads Addict] on said:

      Hail Mary is a stand-alone sports romance by Nicola Rendell. This book has been out for awhile now and I don’t know what took me so long to finally read it. First of all, I loved the cover. But even more than that, I loved the characters. Just wait until you meet Jimmy “The Falcon” Falconi and the woman that rocked his world, Mary Monahan.Jimmy is the quarterback for the Chicago Bears. But things haven’t been going very well lately. His game is off and he’s on an epic losing streak. If [...]

      Honey, sugar, champagneoh fucking my! Nicola Rendellwhere the HELL have you been all my life?! HAIL MARY was EPIC! It seems like I've read a lot of sports romances this month, but HAIL MARY was one of the best. Lovable characters, hilarious and witty banter, intense passion. This had everything and more! At the time I read this, Nicola Rendell was a new author to me. I looked back and saw that this author was fairly new to the game, only releasing two other novels in the romance genre. I was inc [...]

      I read this during a time when I needed the funny, sweet goodness that the story promises with that blurb. It definitely delivered. From the get go Mary wasn't your typical heroine. She packed a punch. Literally. Jimmy was down to earth and simple despite being a sports celebrity. The story was written well with good pacing. The characters experienced growth and made a good pairing. I laughed out loud, was charmed by the exchanges of our mcs, and quite enjoyed the romance. More so than that, the [...]

      Struggled to finish this one. Sort of insta love, sex on the first meeting, no condom. "I want your babies". She doesn't recognise him. Now, I am Irish, but I sort of know the big shots in the sports world, even in America, but she did not recognise him. She should have. especially as she is involved in sports therapy. Maybe I am nit-picking but I need a bit more substance in my books. Too much sex yes, I just said that. It's not that they were too young. She was 30, I think. A bit too sweet an [...]

      The first 25% or so of this one was slow going for me. It was REALLY wordy (IMO) with long conversations that could have been shortened to move the plot along faster (the fight scene at the beginning, the rib restaurant scene, and the BFF dog convo are a few examples.) Things started to pick up a bit more after that and I got more involved in the plot.Both characters were likable for the most past. Mary had a couple times where I wanted to throttle her and felt she acted a little immature for a [...]

      4.25 Surprising Stars“I need you more than you can possibly understand. I need you with me. I want you with me. By my fucking side, in my bed, in my life. On the road. The plane. Not just to fuck. Not just to get dirty. But I need you to let me love you. I need you to let me unleash on you. I can’t be polite about it much longer.”To be honest, I wasn’t expecting much when I started this book. I’ve been going through the mother of all book slumps and have been struggling just to finish [...]

      Really liked this one, a sports romance with no in your face manwhore or ex drama, insta love that so totally worked because again, it wasn't in your face, adults who acted like adults and talked to each other, no real push and pull - thank god and Frankie Knuckles. Man oh man, that dog is the total shit, but then what dog that oozes character like Frankie isn't? ♥This was heavy on love and romance and low on angst - a perfect feel-good read.The only thing that let it down a little bit was th [...]

      Stick a fork in me, I'm done! Hail Mary was a fabulous surprise with characters that won me over within the first couple of pages. That first chapter was fantastic and it was the perfect introduction to Jimmy and Mary. It was done with humor mixed with some great flirting and it didn't hurt that the attraction between the two of them was obvious and hot. I was sold. On the spot.I connected with Mary and Jimmy immediately and I liked how approachable and relatable the both were. Yes, Jimmy used t [...]

      **5 You had me ROTFLMAO Stars**Mary is a physical therapist with a special touch that helps people get out of their heads while in pain. And Mary doesn’t know a thing about football. Jimmy is an aging, failing quarterback who can’t get his game on while ON the field. But certainly can OFF the field. The two meet and sparks fly. Well, that is after the knock out. Throw in an awesome best friend, a crazy dog with a crazy name and an adorable little girl named Annie and you have the makings of [...]

      “Don’t be scared. I have been waiting so f*cking long to meet someone who makes me feel exactly like I do with you. Like I’m safe, and loved, and needed. And like I’m not so alone after all.”Wow, I think every piece of clothing on my body caught fire more than once while reading this crazy wonderful book. I admit, there’s always an added level of excitement that I feel from discovering a new author to me and falling in love with their every word for the very first time, but when I fi [...]

      4 "Balls" StarsHail Mary is a sweet and sexy sports rom-com that hooked me from the very first chapter. Mary and Jimmy are seemingly opposite as can be with very different lives, yet there is just something about the two of them together. With some insta-lust/love, this safe (don't let the blurb scare you) love story was completely scrumptious.Mary and Jimmy meet in the cutest meet-cute ever and as they build on their unusual beginning, they find that their attraction only grows. At least until [...]

      This book had a little bit of everything. There were definitely some laugh out loud moments. There were some super hot scenes *fans self*. I will never look at champagne and honey the same. There were some super sweet moments and there were some emotional moments. The ending was great but of course me being the epilogue whore that I am, I wanted more as this didn't really have an actual epilogue. It was all tied up nicely with a definite HEA though. I would really love to get Bridget's story. Sh [...]

      Holy hotness, Batman! So much to love about this book!! (And some things, not so much!) But overall, Hail Mary was a deliciously naughty sports romance with some unforgettable passion between the main characters. Nicola Rendell is definitely a writer to watch and her book kept me engaged and laughing until the very end.This is a dirty, dirty book and LOTS of fun. Even if you don't usually read sports romance, give Hail Mary a try! You will love this very spicy and very funny story. I loved that [...]

      DNF 40%I'm thinking this may just be me, but I really wasn't feeling this one. I started it 2 days ago, and wasn't even halfway through, it wasn't that it was bad. like it was not original and I didn't really connect with either of the leads. **I'm not in the habit of rating books I DNF, so no rating.**

      Sexy Hot Cute FunnyThe story was a hot sexy insta-love and cute and funny in parts. I luv how Mary and Jimmy met each other it was great and the spark they had was strong. Jimmy is a guy who knows what he wants and he wants Mary a lot she is very sexy as hell. They were so hot together from the very start and I luvd it. I like Jimmy's dominate side in the bedroom and Mary liked a lil control as well. There lives a very different Jimmy being a famous footballer and Mary a physical therapist. They [...]

      Well this was good , as in a no Brainer , Insta-love, insta-hot-melt your panties off sex , minimal angst , good kind of a way . I love Nicola Rendell's humor , so it was pretty enjoyable.

      Ok, this was pretty funny. And, after reading it, the cover makes sense! Still worthy of a Smart Bitches Trashy Books cover snark post, though!

    24. Anne OK on said:

      A new author for me and I felt that old cringe sneak in. You know the one that is like if you've read one, you've read them all. What I've come to expect from sports romance more often than not lately. Don't particularly enjoy an insta-love - I like a bit more build up with some storyline behind it. Definitely am not a fan of no protection and let's get pregnant without using our brains first mentality. Yes, there were some delightful and funny moments, too. It sizzled with heat and a few really [...]

      This is 1st person POV alternating Jimmy, then Mary every other chapter.The book starts off with Jimmy's POW while he's getting pummeled by Mary in the boxing ring at the gym where he trains. Jimmy's mesmerized by Mary. She one bad ass. And she doesn't know that he's the QB of the Chicago Bears. What? Yep, nope, she doesn't follow football. She doesn't give a rat's ass who he is. But she's attracted to him too. The 2nd chapter w/ Mary's narrative, is the rest of their meet cute. Huh! Loved it. W [...]

      ***ARC Provided by the Author and Ardent Prose PR***Nicola Rendell is rapidly becoming a favorite author of mine. She is an incredibly talented writer who brings characters, scenes and stories together flawlessly and they leave you wanting more of the character, hoping for a sequel and wishing the book was longer.Hail Mary is the story of Jimmy and Mary, and I enjoyed the heck out of their meeting, the way she was tough enough to handle herself with him, and that he respected that about her. Def [...]

      Don't judge a book by its cover, because this book was definitely better than its cover! *lol*Strong heroine, likable hero and a lot of hot dirty sex. Some things were almost too much and I’m not a shy catholic girl, if you know what I mean :-) But it was solved “aesthetically”, so no complains. Kitchen scene… *I-need-a-long-cold-shower*(view spoiler)[ (hide spoiler)]Behind all hilarious moments, sexy times and insta-love-thing there was a believable love story of two soul-mates.Safety n [...]
