Only When It's Us (Bergman Brothers #1)

Only When It’s Us is a steamy slow burn love story about a rising soccer star and her classmate, handsome behind his initially surly demeanor. This frenemies-to-lovers adult sports romance really scores!

Synopsis:

Can a matchmaking professor, silly pranks, and some unexpected losses bring together two unlikely people? Find out in this steamy slow burn love story about a rising soccer star and her brooding classmate. (This is the first in a highly anticipated series of novels about the wild adventures of five Swedish brothers and their happily ever afters.)

Review:

If someone told me a month ago that I would be reading (and enjoying) more romance novels, I would NOT have believed them! But this month’s been crazy, amiright? So a shift in my usual, heavily emotional, relevant and often diverse book choices was needed. Only When It’s Us is still emotional and relevant, but took a lighter, more uplifting (and most welcomed) turn.

This book was a recommendation from a friend, and I’m happy to say that she was SO right in singing this book’s praises. The dialogue between Willa and Ryder is so witty and snarky, with equal measures of irritation and tenderness. It’s nice to have two characters that are totally aware of their attraction – instead of many romance novels where one is somehow completely oblivious to the feelings that even the readers can see. These two are a fantastic duo that kept me laughing out loud and rooting for them.

There are SO many great quotes that kept me hooked, and I DEVOURED this book in a day. An added bonus was the way some tough issues were handled. Illness, hearing loss, death, and grief were all covered in such a tender and thoughtful ways.

If you need a change in your reading mood, or just your mood in general, and enjoy slow burn steamy romances (Yes, mom, that means there’s sex in this book), you HAVE to give this one a try. I’ll be recommending this one for sure! And I’ll be first in line for the next book in the series!
