Caught Offside by Liz Crowe

Ramon Castillo, world famous soccer player and international playboy has been brought low by a career-ending injury. After the humiliation of a shattered leg at the World Cup final, he has spent a year enduring surgeries and painful therapies, the last three months of which are at the Castillo resort in Las Vegas under the watchful eye of his cousin, Jackson Castillo and owner of the Castillo hotel chain. But Ramon’s lack of interest in soccer, women, or in anything besides the blackjack tables has Jackson worried.

Gillian Winter, catering and banquet manager for the MGM Grand Hotel is nurturing her own deep wounds. Her beloved husband has died unexpectedly, leaving her with a young son whose one dream is to meet his hero: Number 17 on the American National Soccer team, Ramon Castillo. When an apparent chance encounter in the lobby of the MGM reveals Ramon's presence in their midst, everyone's lives are changed forever.

Can Madame Eve work her magic and bring true healing to Ramon and Gillian? Or is it too late?

Reviewer: Dolce Amore
Love could be a dangerous thing, especially when you lose someone important to you.

Gillian Winter knows that very well, because she lost her husband two years ago. Now it was just her and her son against the world. Ramon Castillo, world famous soccer player, lost his career because of an accident. Will they cure each other? Maybe, with the help of persistent friends and family.

Ms. Liz Crowe keeps her sweet style, giving us the story of two broken souls. It’s a good read, but not unforgettable. I keep hoping to read a larger book of hers, because I know that then she will have enough space to make deeper characters and to give more reality to the story. She is a writer with a lot of potential.

So if you're in the mood for an enjoyable read, give this book try. 3.5 stars.
