“Hi Maryse, I’m following this thread on The Locker Room and there is over 225 comments and no one can figure out what book this is. Maybe you can help, I’ve copied the post, please see below: Thanks for any help! Tasha
I’m issuing a call for help to the Locker Room, as there is a book I’ve been thinking of and can’t recall the title to.”
And here is what she copy-pasted for us:
“The hero is a pro athlete (I want to say football), lives in a modern or FLW style home. The heroine might be a college student (not sure on this point). Anyway, the hero and the heroine either have sex or he tells her he loves her for the first time, and then he gets a phone call (thinks she is asleep). He says some not nice things that she hears and she gets upset and goes to his teammate who lives across the street.
There is a plot about him having a child he didn’t know about, I think the mother just drops the kid off at the house.
There is a party at the teammate’s house across the street and either the hero or heroine gets absolutely plastered.
I think the heroine is living with the hero for some reason (possibly just as roommates). They both have families that are nosy, and I think at one point the heroine’s father takes the hero aside and threatens him not to hurt the heroine. It is also possible that the heroine has a sibling who is a complete mess (and might sell the hero and heroine’s story to the paps?). This might also be the first in the series.
Anywho, that’s what I recall. And my kindle is bursting at the seams, so a look through my books didn’t help me figure it out.”
WAIT! WAIIIT. A. MINUTE!!!!!!! I know this one. I read it!!! I loved it!
Is it… Room 212 by Kate Stewart? <— I can’t tell from my review (Darn me!! Sometimes I’m so anti-spoiler I can’t even use my own backtracking to pinpoint a book). LOL!!! BUT I THINK THAT’S IT!! In fact, I’m gonna pull up that book and look at my highlights to see.
If you know which one, post below!! But I know for a fact I read this. I totally remember this scene and I was FURIOUS!!!!
