We are celebrating the release of The Hail Mary by Ginger Scott!
One-Click this amazing series today!
Sixteen years is a long time. In a marriage, it’s a milestone. On the gridiron, it’s a miracle. Reed Johnson wants more time for everything, but time is funny that way.
It can be cruel.
With a body that can’t quite take the hits it used to and a heart tired of being torn in two different directions, Reed is faced with a reality he’s not quite ready for—life without the game. He became a man under Friday night game lights and in college stadium tunnels, and without the grit and the glory that’s earned ten yards at a time, he’s afraid of what kind of man he’ll be.
But there’s more than a game at stake now.
Reed’s wife, Nolan, is afraid too. She’s seen what can happen when the love of her life pushes himself too hard, and she can’t escape the nightmares she relives after almost losing her entire world to one single play on the field.
There is no compromise when it comes to football. Same goes for the heart. You’re either all in, or you get crushed. For Reed and Nolan, the clock is ticking down. Time…it does that. One way or another, they’re going to have to make a choice.
This is their hail Mary.
This is win or lose.
(The Hail Mary is book 3 in The Waiting Series, which follows high school sweethearts Reed Johnson and Nolan Lennox through football, life, love and everything messy that goes along with it. The series begins with Waiting on the Sidelines and Going Long.)
5 of 5 Stars
Book 3 of Waiting on the Sidelines was so much of everything I had no idea I wanted!! It was fantastic. UGH! I didn’t even know we were gonna get this glimpse into Nolan and Reed into adulthood!
Nolan and Reed………….. 16 years later. WOW!! Man does this book ever portray the awkwardness, avoidance, skirting around, hardships that come with marriage. It doesn’t gloss over it, and I LOVE IT. It was real. It was just so beautifully written.
16 years of marriage, a teenage daughter, an NFL seasoned quarterback hanging on, a wife dealing with the scares that must come from being scared from knowing your husband has a dangerous job, life’s ups, life’s downs……..and I just don’t know that my going on and on can do Ginger’s newest baby any justice.
It is not new news that I love the author. However, the thing about each of her books, is that there is so much growth. The Hail Mary is NO different. I loved seeing the progression in Nolan and Reed, in the same way I love seeing Ginger’s progression.
What I will say, please read the previous 2. If it’s been an a century like it had been for me, do your self a favor and re-read them. It honestly made the journey that much sweeter.
Read the first two books in the series today!
Start with Waiting on the Sidelines here.
Going Long is book 2, and find it here.
