Reed’s Reckoning by Ahren Sanders
Arianna ‘Ari’ Williams thought she experienced the depths of true love until the man of her dreams dismissed her with no explanation. Heartbroken and humiliated, she found herself changing the course of her life and picking up the pieces of her shattered heart. Now four years later, she has a successful career, amazing friends, and a young son with crystal blue eyes that reminds her every day of the love she imagined. Emotionally she has moved on but the wounds never healed.
Reed Matthews has it all. Playing professional football was his always his dream. Being one of the most successful wide receivers in the league comes with money, fame, and all the women he wants. Even with all his wishes coming true, he never stops thinking of the one woman that owned his soul four years ago.
A chance encounter brings Reed to the realization that Ari Williams not only hid a life changing secret from him, but also things weren’t as they seemed all those years ago. He’s determined to get her back and build their lives together.
When the truth behind their deception is revealed- friendships are tested, families are torn apart, and the one person behind it all is relentless.
Can Reed protect those he loves and build the future he dreamed of?

Whitney Four Star Review
After falling in love with Ahren’s Surrendering series, I was excitedly awaiting this new stand alone staring a hot football player, Reed, and a sweet but feisty heroine, Ari. If you are a fan of the Surrendering series, you will love this book. The writing style is much the same with a cast of great side characters and a swoony leading man.
It’s hard not to fall for Reed though I can’t give too much away about his character or it will ruin the story. Suffice it to say that when he wants something, he goes after it with all his heart. He’s loyal and protective, putting his friends and family above himself.
Ari is a great female lead in that she’s not a pushover or whiny. She is a little too dramatic at times (as are some of the other characters) which is why I only gave the book four stars but that was easily overlooked as I got sucked into the story.
Ahren gives us a bit of mystery as Ari and Reed try to discover who went to such great lengths to keep them apart over the course of several years. There is not a love triangle but I am definitely in love with Ari’s best friend, Luke. This is a stand alone though I’m hoping there will be a spin off for him.
I definitely recommend this book to anyone wanting a fun and sexy read. The sex scenes are pretty steamy so this is not for the faint of heart. Ahren is good at giving us interesting storylines with a lot of drama and a hint of danger thrown in. This book will keep you on your toes!
