Tie Breaker by P. Dangelico
Release Date: July 25th
Synopsis: All is fair in love and second chances.
Professional tennis star and everybody’s darling, Maren Murphy is going home. Unfortunately, going home is the last thing she wants to do. She doesn’t know what’s worse, being named the executor of her grandfather’s estate, or having to deal with her grandfather’s business partner, Noah Callahan. That devil’s spawn may have broken her young, tender heart, but this time it’s advantage Murphy. If anyone’s calling game, set, and match, it’ll be Maren.
Noah Callahan is a screw up. Well…he used to be a screw up. Bad boy reputations, however, are not easily shed. He’s been a successful business owner for over a decade. You would think the people in his hometown would’ve forgiven and forgotten already, but alas no. Until his one shot at redemption walks into his office. Maren Murphy is the only woman he ever loved––and the one he purposely drove away.
She’s vowed to hate him for all eternity. He’s vowed to love her forever. Can a second chance be the tiebreaker.
Meet P. Dangelico
Dangelico loves romance in all forms, cuddly creatures (four legged and two), really bloody sexy pulp, the NY Jets (although she’s reconsidering after this season), and to while away the day at the barn (apparently she does her best thinking shoveling horse crap). What she’s not enamored with is referring to herself in the third person and social media so don’t expect her to get on Twitter anytime soon. Oh, and although she was born in Italy, she’s been Jersey Strong since she turned six.

4 STAR Review by Jodi for Ruby Red Romance Review
I enjoyed this Tiebreaker by P. Dangelico. I fell hard and fast for Maren and Noah. That being said, my opinion of them changed towards the end of the book. This book is full of emotion. I’m really trying to figure out where to go with this review. I don’t want to give anything away about this book, but at the same time, I have mixed emotions and feelings. I love P. Dangelico’s books. She’s an amazing writer, but this book fell a little short for me. It’s have nothing, and I mean nothing to do with her writing, because that, is what kept me reading. What it does have to do with is the story line itself. We know very early on that something major happened between Noah and Maren, causing her to escape from her hometown. We don’t know the extent of the event until later in the story. I like the dual POV. It was refreshing to see what each character was thinking or feeling. And I’m all for flashbacks, but this book has a ton. It’s a little overkill.
Overall this was a good book. Is it one I will pick up and read again, probably not. P. Dangelico has many great books out there. This one, just missed the mark for me. I did give it a 4 star rating, because it is well written, just didn’t pull me in like I was hoping for.
