The Total Package by Stephanie Evanovich - Review

I received this book in exchange for my fair and honest review

Published: December 27, 2016
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Number of page: 352
Genre: Fiction, Romance, Chick-Lit

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.

My thoughts:
I like how this author's characters deal are so real. It was nice to catch up with characters from her other two books. With that being said this can be read as a stand alone book but there are spoilers for the previous books. This book is one that you start reading and before you know it the day it gone. While reading this book you will go through a range of emotions from laughter to sadness. I liked how this story proves that you can overcome things in your past to become a better person. In conclusion this book had well developed characters, a good story line and moves along at a steady pace.
