A professional soccer player. An overworked executive. A marriage of convenience. And too many secrets. The first in a brand new series from Liz Lincoln.

Erika Parker-Ward is living the dream–her professional soccer career is on the rise, and she’s got her sights set on making the World Cup team for the US. But all of that could be over in a blink now that Erika’s been diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis.

Her plan? Keep the diagnosis hush hush by paying for private medical care, but the cost is threatening to bury her alive.

Nate Simmons owes all his success as a wealthy tech exec to the grandmother who took him in when he was orphaned at two. So when she wants to see him married before she dies of heart failure, he is ready to move mountains to give his beloved Oma her dying wish.

A chance meeting on the road brings these two desperate strangers together, and an evening of commiserating makes a potentially terrible plan seem pretty perfect: A marriage-of-convenience will give them both what they need.

It’s strictly business, and everybody knows you should never mix business with pleasure..

Erika and Nate have plenty of secrets to keep–from the press, and from each other–but the biggest secret of all might be their true feelings.

Erika is in the US Soccer Women’s Team. She has a deep secret–she is suffering from rheumatoid arthritis. And despite her overwhelming medical fees, she didn’t want her team to know that she is suffering from arthritis. Nate is a successful CEO of a company. His grandmother, Oma’s last wish is for Nate to settle down and get married. So by chance, the two meet each other and soon, romance develops between the two.

It started a bit slow to me but gradually the story grew into me. I do like the chemistry between Erike and Nate and the author has done a good job with the chemistry. The front cover of the story is really cute as well and appealing as well. Besides all the love story between Erika and Nate (and steamy scenes), the story does follow the journey of Erika when she is dealing with her diagnosis in arthritis. As someone who just recently got diagnosed with arthrtitis, I can totally relate to Erika’s story.

Overall, I cannot wait to read more from this author–worth four stars.

Many thanks to Netgalley and publisher for the ARC. The review is based on my honest opinion only.
