My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is the first book I have read from this author and she blew me away. I love a good sport romance but this talented author exceeded all my expectations. This is the first book to A Coach Love series. I was drawn to these characters right from the start. I devoured this amazing book in day and a half.

Trystan was in pro-baseball until he decided he wanted to help out his country. He went across seas and came home injured. His injuries shattered his dreams to ever play pro- baseball again. Trystan goes back home and he starts to work for a construction company. He loves his new job and he also makes new friends. Trystan goes out one night and makes a very bad decision that gets him into trouble with the law. He is very lucky because the judge gives him a chance to redeem himself. Trystan is told that he has to coach the towns little league team. He is all about doing his time and move on but little does he know his life is going to change. Trystan meets a beautiful single mom Stella and he can’t stop thinking about her. Stella is the mother of DJ one of his baseball players. She was not wanting to give his the time of day at first. They then start to talk and get to know each other. He quickly realizes that he is falling for this woman but is she feeling the same way? Will Trystan lose the best thing that has happened to him or will he refuse to lose and fight for what he wants?

I absolutely loved this book. The storyline has it all romance, healing, struggles, and forgiveness. You will fall in love with these characters right from the beginning. Trystan is the hot bachelor of this town. He looks like he can be arrogant but he has a heart of gold. The way he treats Stella and her son will make you swoon. Stella is a beautiful mom that will do anything for her son. She went through a horrible tragedy that makes her more stronger. These characters have some steamy scenes that will make your toes curl. This book talks about some real life problems that is going on in this world. I absolutely loved the ending it will make you cry. I can’t wait to see what this amazing author will write next.

Refuse to Lose (A Coach’s Love #1) by Alison Mello – Review by Jenni Bishop

Refuse to Lose (A Coach's Love #1)Refuse to Lose by Alison Mello
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Refuse to Lose is sweet and will warm your heart. It is a second chance romance with wanting to instil simple courtesies. How the life lessons and values of one man can affect a whole community. How taking the time to help others and teach respect is the name of the game. How working together as a team can help you accomplish thing you thought impossible. Trystan finds himself in a situation he never thought he would be in, a situation he was forced into, but could it turn out to be the best thing that could have happened to him? Could the best thing that happened to him also be the best thing that happens for others?
