Stacia Palmer had one goal in life—to become an NFL quarterback’s wife.
For the past three years, she’s seduced her way through the university’s football line-up. But when she finally has a quarterback fresh off the draft, Stacia experiences a shocking change of heart. One that sends her back to the place she never thought she'd return to.
Once there, she finds that no one believes her. Least of all Pace Larson, her sexy on-again off-again ex who has never quite gotten over her leaving him for someone else. Of course, he’s now the starting quarterback and determined to claim her as his prize.
But can Stacia give him a second chance when he’s toyed with her emotions into the fourth quarter? Or will they run out of time?
NOTE: SILVER is the last book in All That Glitters series, a five-book series. Each full length novel follows a new couple.
Review: Silver by K.A. Linde
Stacia felt a presence at her shoulder. She recognized his cologne before she even looked up. It smelled like desire and late-night sex marathons.
“What do you want?” Stacia asked, not looking up.
“Just coming to check on you,” Pace said in a sexy low tone that sent a shot of need straight between her legs.
Damn him for being able to do that to me!
She jerked her head up. “Why?”
“Because you look miserable, even from across the room.”
“I do not!”
He raised an eyebrow, and she had to keep from sighing. That face. God, if he wasn’t such an asshole…
“The hair flip earlier, Pink? Really? Sure sign of distress. You practically called me over here.”
“Don’t call me that,” she said through gritted teeth.
He smirked at her response.
“And I didn’t call you over here. I don’t even want to see you.”
“You can talk to me, you know.” He leaned his hip against the bar. He was almost touching her but not quite. She could feel the heat of his skin. “Come on, let’s go outside. Away from all this noise.”
“If you think for one second that I’m going to go anywhere with you, you’re insane,” she said, straightening.
He brushed her hair off one shoulder and just barely skimmed his finger across her exposed collarbone. She stiffened. Her entire body throbbed. No one else elicited these primal emotions from her. Not even the guy she’d given her virginity to. The guy no one knew about.
“I promise I won’t touch you,” he growled out. “Unless you beg me to.”
Stacia smacked him in the chest and stormed away. What an arrogant jackass! How dare he say those things to her! For all he knew, she was still dating Marshall. Pace was so testy over the fact that he thought she’d slept with Marshall when they were together, yet here he was, seducing her, while he still believed she was with Marshall. Ass!
Pace chuckled behind her. “Come on, Stacia. I’m just messing with you.”
He followed her across the crowded room until she reached the restroom. Then, he did exactly what he’d said he wouldn’t. He grabbed her arm and kept her from entering a place he wouldn’t follow.
“Seriously, what’s up?” he asked.
“Do you really want to know?” Fury and also desperation coated her features. She really wanted to tell someone. She wanted it off her chest.
“Yeah. Though this fire is pretty hot.” He raised an eyebrow.
“God, is everything just a joke to you?” she asked.
His eyes shot straight through her. “Not everything.”
“Feels like it. I feel like a joke to you.”
“Most things, Pink,” he said, stepping closer, “but not you. Never you.”
Stacia tensed as she forgot the world around her. Pace had a way of doing that—making her lose herself. But all she did by losing herself was open herself up for him to hurt her. Time and time again.
“Pace,” she said through a shuddering breath.
“I won’t take what isn’t mine.”
“I just still consider you mine.”
My Thoughts on Silver…
There are two subgenres in the romance world I just love, second chance and sports romance and when an author brings the two together I’m a very happy camper!! KA Linde did just that in Silver and I just devoured it! I found myself sneaking to read whenever I could! I was addicted to Stacia and Pace’s story. I wanted them to find their happy place but sometimes there is too much hurt in the past that it’s almost impossible to move forward. I loved seeing the characters evolve and grow. We met both Stacia and Pace way back in Diamonds and we’ve seen them as secondary characters in the books as Bryna’s best friend and step brother but now we get them front and center. I am a sucker for a good love story with a sprinkle of drama and KA Linde nailed it with Silver. I would highly recommend this one to anyone who enjoys a sexy read. This is a standalone even though it’s part of a series and is told in third person.
Stacia has always been the jersey chasing cheerleader. She knew that she wanted to be a NFL quarterback’s wife. Her entire life revolved around football and she knew that was the place she meant to be, until she was actually there. Sitting next to her boyfriend on draft day she realizes that she’s about to make a huge mistake. She takes a long look at herself and decides to go back to college and finish with a degree. For the first time she doesn’t know what to do with her life. All of her friends have a plan and she feels like she’s the only one that is left undecided. She must discover herself and do things for her.
Pace is the starting quarterback for Las Vegas State. They are on track to be national championships but there’s one regret he’s always had. He had dated Stacia years ago but a misunderstanding leads to their unenviable breakup. Now that she is back he is determined to rekindle the relationship they once shared.
In the past, cheating and lies got in the way of their happily ever after. Now they are both older and more mature, can they work past their trust issues? Is Stacia ready for another relationship? She’s ready to focus on school and doesn’t need the distractions of a relationship. See how Pace plans on winning her back in Silver. I was never a fan of Pace in the past but now he certainly won my heart! Totally made me swoon!
