Too Much of a Good Thing?, or Why Rugby Players are The Dream

Be careful what you wish for…

It’s time for Lu Sheppard to get back in the game – fact. After ten years of playing mum to her younger brothers the boys have left home and she’s determined to make up for lost time! Item number one on her list? A man to have some fun with!

Rugby coach Will Scott is just what Lu needs to ease herself back into the dating game. Only in town temporarily, king of the fling…he’s perfect. But his kisses are so electric that remembering they have an expiry date is getting harder. Suddenly Lu starts wondering…maybe it is possible to have too much of a good thing!

Joss Wood and I are one of a kind – namely, we both have a thing for rugbyplayers (and spend a ridiculous amount of time on Twitter discussing this).  So imagine my delight when I realised that her latest novel started an ex-professional rugby player.

He’s thoughtful.  And sweet.  And mind-blowingly hot.

And his interactions will Lu, Wood’s lovely heroine?  Perfect.  Lu’s two younger twin brothers – who she brought up following the death of her parents – have made her promise to live a little whilst they’re off at uni.  So when she meets Will on a night out, sparks fly and soon he finds himself helping her let loose. 

Too Much of a Good Thing? had so many of those catch-your-breath moments – and not all of them were romantic.  There’s the moment when Will brings the team he’s currently coaching to help Lu’s best friend’s son adjust to the mainstream school he’s starting; there’s the moment when Lu’s younger brothers thank her for all she’s sacrificed; and there’s the moment when Lu realises that she really can make a career out of the photography that she’s loved for so long.

Stepping out into a world that you’ve shied away from for so long must be terrifying, and Lu’s courage and vivacity in doing so captures our hearts, as well as Will’s.

Utterly enchanting, and with a peak into the world of rugby, definitely worth a read!

Plus, I don’t think I’d be alone in suggesting that perhaps the Modern Tempted team take a rugby player each and see if we could cover a whole team for a series extravaganza!  Just saying.  ;)
