About this ebook

This time around, they’ll both have to take risks to make it work. Don't miss this fun and flirty second-chance contemporary romance.

Hayes Walker is screwed.

His body is giving out, his family is bleeding him dry, and he never prepared for life after football. When the Dallas Bulldogs offer him a coaching position instead of a returning roster spot, only two things keep him going—staying fit in case another football team picks him up, and spending time with a gray-faced Boxer at the Unlovabulls Dog Rescue.

Olive Russo is a woman who can walk through a kennel in a white pantsuit without getting a spot on her. The always organized PR pro will need her cool control when she’s forced to plan a fundraising gala for the Unlovabulls with the college boyfriend who turned her inside out. A decade ago, Hayes Walker broke her heart and sent Olive into a spiral of bad decisions that she’d rather her clients not know about. Now she is determined to keep the completely lickable Hayes off her to-do list—even if their chemistry is stronger than ever.

Dumping Olive was the worst decision Hayes ever made. When the amazing girl walks back into his life a full-fledged woman, he makes a play for her heart. But when Olive’s secrets are exposed and the NFL knocks on Hayes’s door, they’ll both need to leave their past where it belongs if they’re going to make it work the second time around.

Hayes Walker and Olivia Russo were very much in love over ten years ago. But Hayes chose a career in football and broke up with her via a text. After the heartbreak and missteps in her youth, Olivia is nowadays a well respected owner of a PR business while Hayes has been let go from his football team. Hayes never told Olivia the real reason for his actions, and still after all this time his family, especially his mother, seem to be ruling his life. When the rescue center their friends run needs help, they both team up to help them get donations. Will this give them a second chance or will the past problems with family have Hayes leaving Olivia once again? This story is a reminder that one’s experiences during childhood and the way parents treat their children do indeed forever leave a mark on the individual. It will also affect them as they become adults. Overcoming those emotional scars might be difficult, but worth it if it means finding one’s happiness. This book was the second one in the series and though I felt I would have benefited from reading book one, it could still be considered a standalone. I was entrusted a copy of this book by Netgalley and Carina Press. The opinions expressed are solely my own.

Model Behavior was well behaved! 4 stars This book was a lovely blend of humor and emotion with steaminess that felt like a well behaved (not angsty) book! Olive was a strong, independent woman with some baggage, and I adored her. Hayes was a confident, laid-back man with just as much baggage, and his journey in this book made me cheer by the end. They were opposites, his chaos to her control, with a second chance, and I enjoyed every minute of reading this book!

About the author

Tricia Lynne is fluent in both sarcasm and cuss words—a combination that tends to embarrass her husband at corporate functions. A tomboy at heart, she loves hard rock, Irish whiskey, dogs, and Vans (shoes). She’s drawn to strong, flawed heroines, and believes writing isn’t a decision one makes, but a calling one can’t resist. She lives in the Dallas area with her husband, the world's sweetest rescued Cane Corso, and a completely terrifying Clumber Spaniel pup.
