What happens when a single mother is forced to live with a grumpy, ailing football star? The smolder turns red hot, of course.
Amanda Shaw has pulled it together. It’s taken a couple of years, a boatload of hard work, and a ton of self-discipline, but she finally has her problems in a headlock. Her yoga studio in the city has become so successful she’s opening one near the beach, and her relationship with her ten-year-old son is improving every day. The last thing she needs is a monkey wrench thrown into her smoothly running life.
Grant Hendricks is one big monkey wrench. The four time Defensive Player of the Year, three time NFL sack leader, and all-around football god has officially hit rock bottom. A devastating back injury means he may have to retire and that scares him more than doctors telling him that the next hit could leave him paralyzed. All he needs is a quiet place to think and his teammate’s beach house sounds like just the place. Problem is, the woman already living there.
3.5 Star Review by Ashley
What a fun, sometimes emotional, read Bulldozer was. This being my first title from P. Dangelico, I wasn't sure what to expect but I enjoyed her writing style and the flow of the story.
Mandy was great. She had a hard past but didn't let that stop her from trying to make the best of her present and future. Her life centered around her son, Sam. He was such a spark of light. His sweet innocence led to some cheek reddening moments for his mother. Most of them came from questions surrounding their angry housemate, Grant.
Ohhhhhhh Grant. Angry. Sexy. Anxious. Struggling. I loved seeing the change in him as time went on. How his kindness seeped out in tiny bits that made it almost impossible for Mandy to resist. She tried. But it was no use and when they finally gave in, it was combustible.
There were a few more twists and turns and one heart stopping moment along the way. And more than once I let out a happy cheer when Mandy stood her ground and demanded more for herself and Sam than Grant was giving. Overall, Bulldozer was enjoyable. P. Dangelico touched a hair on dependency but most of the focus was family and forgiveness.
About the Author
P. Dangelico loves romance in all forms, cuddly creatures (four legged and two), really bloody sexy pulp, the NY Jets (although she’s reconsidering after this season), and to while away the day at the barn (apparently she does her best thinking shoveling horse crap). What she’s not enamored with is referring to herself in the third person and social media so don’t expect her to get on Twitter anytime soon. Oh, and although she was born in Italy, she’s been Jersey Strong since she turned six.
