Jet’s no help. He’s too busy negotiating a new contract, dealing with injuries, and proving his critics wrong. Why can’t Maura find a favorite charity and spend her days shopping and redecorating the house, like a “normal” NFL wife? He has records to break and autographs to sign.
Maura might be uncertain about what her next play is, but she knows what it isn’t: motherhood. Unfortunately, nobody gave a copy of that playbook to her mother-in-law, who wants another grandchild more than Jet wants another Super Bowl ring.
With so many competing interests, someone’s going to walk away disappointed. Who will rise victorious, and who will limp to the locker room to play another day? In real life, not everyone gets a trophy.
Brea Brown's irreverent romantic comedies feature a roster of unlikely yet believable characters that will keep you turning pages late into the night—or laughing in public! She draws her inspiration from the age-inappropriate books she pilfered from her older sisters' bookshelves, her own mishaps, and her overactive imagination. She believes in making her characters work for their dreams, but she's a sucker for a happy ending.
She lives in Springfield, Missouri with her husband and children, whom she considers her own wacky cast of characters.
