Hail Mary

Hail Mary by Nicola Rendell

A funny, naughty, dirty *standalone* sports romance...

At a boxing gym in Chicago, Mary Monahan accidentally knocks out the most handsome man she’s ever met. After she wakes him up with a few slaps and some smelling salts, the very first thing he does is ask her out for ribs and beer. His name is Jimmy. He looks like a Gillette model. And he’s just too hunky to resist.

Jimmy “The Falcon” Falconi is mystified that Mary has absolutely no idea who he is. Mystified and refreshed. He is, after all, not your everyday NFL quarterback. He shops at Costco, has a soft spot for Pinterest, and is in the midst of an epic losing streak.

Jimmy falls for Mary fast and hard, the way he does everything—balls out and like it’s fourth and long. And he realizes he’s finally met his match. That stamina he’s so proud of? Doesn’t stand a chance against her Kegels.

But what they don’t know is she’s also his new physical therapist, recently hired by the Bears to work on his rotator cuff…and groin injury. If she can’t help him, he’ll be traded faster than they can say “offensive penetration.”

In spite of the thousands of internet memes featuring Jimmy’s face with captions like: “HEY GIRL, WANT TO TOUCH MY BALLS?” Mary finds herself falling for him and his unrelenting desire to make her his.

Until a toddler shows up at Jimmy’s door.

And throws their lives into total chaos.


To the reader: Sweet. Safe. HEA. This is a comedy that gets very dirty, so be advised. Other tasters' notes: Hints of honey and champagne. And a feisty little dog named Frankie Knuckles.

Caroline's Review ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Jimmy Falconi is on a losing streak and just can’t seem to break it. Then beautiful, feisty Mary Monahan knocks her way into his life, his bed, and his heart, and turns his luck around.

“I’ve never been kissed like that.”
“I’ll bet you’ve never been a lot of things that I’m going to do to you.”

The sizzle between these two characters was electric and scorching, and the deeper feelings they have and the way the author writes about them was really swoonworthy. Jimmy tries to live a good life and plans for a secure future to counteract the terrible one his deadbeat brother lives because he adores his little niece. He is alpha and intense, but earnest and down to earth. 

“I’ve been waiting so fucking long to meet someone who makes me feel exactly like I do with you. Like I’m safe and loved and needed. And like I’m not so alone after all.”

Mary has her own insecurities and fears that make her the person she is, but Jimmy gets under her skin so quickly, and thrills her libido and her heart like no one else ever has. She is a tough little cookie but sassy, perky, and so caring. 

“It’s been intense, Mary…I don’t want to be any other way with you. I want to love you so hard that it takes your breath away.”

I thought this story was unabashedly romantic, no-holds-barred sexy, really funny, and stinkin' adorable! LOVED IT!!
