Synopsis (from Amazon): The New York Times bestselling author of Big Girl Panties is back with a funny, sweet, and sizzling novel about love, redemption, and second chances.
Heartthrob star quarterback Tyson Palmer has it all: a million-dollar arm, a winning season and the promise of a Superbowl ring. But more importantly, football’s biggest star is the ultimate comeback kid. After an addiction to painkillers nearly derailed his career, Tyson got sober and went from zero to hero in the eyes of the public.
But one person remains unconvinced: Dani Carr, a sports commentator with high ratings and following of her own.
Dani can’t forgive Tyson’s transgressions or forget a single passionate night with him back in college. To make things worse, Tyson doesn’t realize that the bombshell with huge ratings is the cute co-ed whose heart he once broke.
But can a sports journalist trying to claw her way to the top and a quarterback who knows all about rock bottom make it to the Super Bowl without destroying each other? And what will happen when Tyson—riding high now that he’s revived his career—realizes he needs to make an even more important comeback with Dani? Can he use his million-dollar moves to get past her defenses—or will she sideline him for good?
Stephanie Evanovich is a full-fledged Jersey girl from Asbury Park and the New York Times bestselling author of Big Girl Panties and The Sweet Spot.
One (or more) Sentence Summary: I really enjoyed The Total Package. I thought I would know where the book was going and that it would be very predictable. However, right from the start, it was not what I thought it would be. I liked all the characters and how they all tied together and yet each one had a different story that was weaved into one big story. I really like the sports/chicklit them.
Fast read/slow read: The Total Package was a fast listen. It is one of those type of books you take the long way home so you have more listen time!
Would I Read Other Books by the Author: Yes, I have read Big Girl Panties and would like to read/listen to The Sweet Spot.
